On the 18th of April 1943, four boys discovered a skeleton buried in the hollow of a wych-elm tree in Hagley Woods, England.

Police immediately got to work on identifying the remains and trying to determine the cause of death, however, the investigation hit a wall. They couldn’t identify the remains. About eight months later the messages started to appear around town, scrawled in white chalk across walls and abandoned buildings, “Who put Bella in the witch elm”.

On the 29th of January 1999, best friends Lauria Bible and Ashley Freeman had a sleepover at Ashley’s house to celebrate her 16th birthday.

Ashley’s parents Danny and Kathy Freeman were also home. It was a quiet uneventful evening, nothing seemed out of the ordinary until 6 am the next morning when a neighbour reported the Freeman house was on fire.

On the first of December 1948, a body of a man was located along the seawall of Somerton Beach, just near Adelaide in South Australia.

At first, the police thought it was going to be a straightforward matter, but as the weeks and months went on, it became apparent that this case was anything but straightforward... To this day we don’t know who he is, we don’t know where he came from and we don’t know how he died.
