Farewell For our farewell episode, we discuss why we decided to end Zion's Lost after 3 years and over 150 episodes. We share some memorable experiences we have had and episodes that still keep us up at night. We also talk about a few cases we wish we could have covered, but couldn't due to privacy reasons. We appreciate your loyalty and support of our podcast. We are very thankful to have had such kind listeners who care about the cases and victims as much as we do. We hope that we have succeeded in bringing awareness to cold cases, missing persons, and victims of violent crime.  - Julia & Janet

Annette Hill In 1989, a successful mother and social worker, Annette Hill, left her home at about 8pm, never to return. A robbery and murder gone wrong led to police to some of her belongings, but the suspect was never charged with any crime relating to her disappearance. However, that would all change in 2011 when another cold case from 1989 was reopened, and evidence was retested.  https://www.newspapers.com/image/613314616/?terms=Annette%20Hill&match=1 https://charleyproject.org/case/annette-a-hill https://www.newspapers.com/image/613419829/?terms=%22victor%20aguilar%22&match=1 https://www.newspapers.com/image/467097805/?terms=%22victor%20aguilar%22&match=1 https://www.newspapers.com/image/613321208/?terms=%22felicia%20pappas%22&match=1
History of Lagoon It’s what fun is! Utah’s family-owned amusement park, Lagoon, has an interesting history dating back to 1886. Lagoon has hosted famous bands, has original wood-carved animals on the carousel, and the infamous ‘White Roller Coaster’ just celebrated its 100th birthday. But with all the rides, games, and cotton candy, comes a few deaths and injuries.  https://www.newspapers.com/image/12467291/?terms=Lagoon&match=1 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lagoon_(amusement_park) https://mysteryofutahhistory.blogspot.com/2017/05/the-dark-side-of-lagoon-amusement-park.html https://www.newspapers.com/image/613315050/?terms=Ryan%20Beckstead&match=1

The Blackbeard Reverend In 1896, human bones and teeth were found inside a church furnace in Salt Lake City. When the reverend, Francis Hermans, could not be located, police suspected him from the start. However, when the details of his life and his history of wives disappearing or suddenly dying, the story got more scandalous and hit the newspapers not only in the U.S, but internationally as well. Even though his face was all over the papers, Reverend Hermans has escaped capture for over a century.  https://www.newspapers.com/image/12423500/?terms=francis%20hermans&match=1 https://www.newspapers.com/image/355381319/?terms=francis%20hermans&match=1 https://www.newspapers.com/image/354248664 https://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn85066387/1896-05-25/ed-1/seq-1/#date1=1896&sort=date&rows=20&words=Francis+Hermann+Rev&searchType=basic&sequence=0&index=8&state=&date2=1963&proxtext=Rev.+Francis+Hermann&y=21&x=10&dateFilterType=yearRange&page=1 https://www.newspapers.com/image/598955112/?terms=Francis%20Hermans&match=1https://www.newspapers.com/image/80844051/?terms=bertha%20wagner&match=1 https://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn84020558/1896-06-06/ed-1/seq-1/#date1=1896&sort=date&rows=20&words=Francis+Hermanns+Rev&searchType=basic&sequence=0&index=9&state=&date2=1963&proxtext=Rev.+Francis+Hermann&y=21&x=10&dateFilterType=yearRange&page=3 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francis_Hermann
