Cover art for podcast Unresolved


288 EpisodesProduced by Unresolved ProductionsWebsite

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.


The Alcasser Girls (Part Four: The Truth)

It has now been weeks since the bodies of Toni Gomez Rodriguez, Desiree Hernandez Folch, and Miriam Garcia Iborra were found in the Spanish hills of La Romana. One suspect has been in custody for over a month, while the other has escaped justice... seemingly forever. 

Miguel Ricart confesses to the rape, torture, and murder of the three teenage victims multiple times, but his confessions always contrast in stark details. More often than not, his confessions line up with what police knew at the time, based off of the autopsies of the victims and their exhaustive investigation.

But each subsequent confession painted a muddled picture: one that gives credence to Miguel Ricart's later claims that the confessions were coerced. This episodes explores how those confessions evolved over time - with and without police involvement. 

Part four of five.
