A Rude, A Prude, and an Unsolved Mystery
Unsolved Mysteries Episode Nine: Unexplained Death of Kurt Sova / John Nellis' Search for His Family
Show Notes

Brown and Easter cover the mysterious and unexplained death of healthy 17-year-old Kurt Sova, as well as the forced separation of John Nellis from his young son and American father. This is now and forever a Dorothy Sova appreciation podcast, because she was basically the lead detective on her own son's case. Brown might shed a tear or two over John's story, and Easter is not in a dumpster; she's just late.
