NPR's Buried pod­cast digs for clues in North­east Texas

The Dallas Morning News - - Arts & Life - Daniel Kus­ner

In March 1991, Carey Mae Parker van­ished from Quin­lan, Texas. The young, un­der­priv­i­leged mom left be­hind three kids and many unan­swered ques­tions. Ra­dio reporter Ge­orge Hale (pic­tured) picks at loose threads and un­furls a tale of drug ad­dic­tion in Hunt County … right near a sus­pi­cious hump of dirt. Pro­duced by KETR, the Na­tional Pub­lic Ra­dio af­fil­i­ate at Texas A&M Univer­sity-Com­merce, Buried is sim­i­lar to other arm­chair-de­tec­tive pod­casts such as Se­rial and even the quirky Miss­ing Richard Sim­mons. But those shows didn’t fea­ture twangy eye­wit­nesses. Nor were they rem­i­nis­cent of Tru­man Capote’s In Cold Blood imag­ined through the lens of a Coen broth­ers movie. De­tails:
