Every day, stories unfold that have no resolution. Unresolved is an investigative and immersive look at those stories, as host Micheal Whelan tries to determine why these stories - unsolved crimes and other unexplained phenomena - have no ending.


Bardstown - Revisited (Part Four: Tommy Ballard)

Through 2015 and 2016, the region of Bardstown was marshaled behind one family as they fought to find their missing loved one: Crystal Rogers.

The patriarch of this family, 54-year old Tommy Ballard, was no stranger to tragedy. He had endured the loss of a sister in his early adulthood, and had worked hard to ensure the safety and happiness of his family in the years since.

In November of 2016, Tommy Ballard was just as active in the search for his daughter as ever. However, his mysterious death would spark the fourth major incident to shake Bardstown is as many years...

This is the fourth part of a new Unresolved series, Bardstown - Revisited. I originally touched upon Tommy's story back in November of 2016, but have expanded upon it significantly, and have rewritten/rerecording everything.

Written, hosted, and produced by Micheal Whelan
