NPR's Buried podcast digs for clues in Northeast Texas

- 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: ketr.org
