I feel so confused about it. Marian did sell her house and change her name so it is feasible that she wanted to disappear. At the same time I do feel for her daughter too. Any other thoughts?

Spoiler alert....

I don’t know what to think. The whole situation is truly bizarre. I thought maybe witness protection, but it seems they’ve looked into that (although I’d have thought it would be sooner). If Marion is out there, I guess she might be prompted to respond with this media scrutiny.

It is so intriguing as to what has happened. I hope the podcast gives Sally some answers

Do you think there is a chance she did molest boys? It makes me wonder about her relationship with her son too?

I’ve been listening while pottering today. It’s quite addictive.

I haven’t listened yet, just read the reddit thread about it. TSS sounds like a pretty awful place for those kids. I wonder if there’s much in the news about anonymous informants? Still, I don’t see why that would send her into hiding.

I read an article about this. So awful for the daughter not to have closure, sounds like the police did manage to find her at one point but obviously can't give any info due to privacy.

I'm listening to it now and there is some clear dislike for her from some people, clear love for her from others.

It sounds like she was a very sad woman in the time leading up to her disappearance.
