Episode 028 - The Disappearance of Sneha Anne Philip
Sneha Anne Philip was a thirty-one year old medical student in the final year of her residency. The year prior, she had married her med-school sweetheart and the two were now living in an apartment in Battery Park City. While on the surface, everything seemed to be moving along smoothly, a dark shadow of rumor and legal trouble was beginning to veil her life.
Sneha was removed from her previous residency program under accusations of being late and alcohol related issues. She filed a police report alleged sexual assault by one of her co-workers, though the District Attorney would later charge Sneha with filing a false report. In the midst of the chaos, Sneha was alleged to have been engaging in extramarital affairs and her struggle with alcohol resulted in her suspension from her new residency.
On the morning of September 10th, 2001, Sneha plead not guilty after refusing to recant her statement and have all charges dropped. That afternoon she spoke to her mother for several hours, and was last seen on surveillance cameras shopping at a nearby department store. This would be the last confirmed sighting, and in the utter devastation and tragedy of the terror attacks of September 11th, Sneha appeared to have vanished into thin air. Did Sneha Philip elect to run away from her problems and start her life anew? Did she, caught up in the stress of her problems, elect to end her own life? Is it possible that she met someone new, or ran into an old enemy and was murdered or abducted? Or, did Sneha use her medical training to try and aid those injured on 911 and ultimately lose her life in the most lethal attack in the history of America?
Join host Steven Pacheco as he examines this confusing and complex case trying to find the answer as to what became of Sneha Anne Philips.
