Episode 013 - The Vanishing of Kyle Fleischmann
Twenty-Four year old Kyle Fleischmann took his mother, sister and best friend to a Dane Cook comedy show in Charlotte, NC. In the early morning hours of November 9th, 2007, he vanished into the darkness of the city. Several witnesses see Kyle that night, and Kyle himself places several short phone calls to his father, sister, best friend and roommate but leaves no messages.
A surveillance camera captures him walking down the street, away from the Buckhead Saloon where he had spent the past few hours. An hour later, a cab driver claims to see Kyle wandering down North Davidson Street, toward Cordelia Park, in a bad part of Charlotte known to be inhabited by drug dealers and members of the violent MS-13 gang.
The next morning, Kyle is reported missing and over the past ten years, no answers nor signs of Kyle have been found. Tracking dogs follow his scent to a then undeveloped construction site, leading many to believe that Kyle was murdered and buried where apartment complexes now stand. Did Kyle simply choose to walk away? Was he struck by a hit and run driver and disposed of or did Kyle fall victim to a brutal act of violence and wind up buried somewhere in the city of Charlotte?
Join host Steven Pacheco as he explores this bizarre disappearance and tries to sort through the myths and misconceptions about one of the most baffling vanishings in the history of North Carolina.
