Episode #73: David Branton - Missing (1993)
Updated: Jul 29, 2022
David Lee Branton seemed like the all American man. His family had a well known name in the Lehigh Valley community. He made his own way by opening up his own law firm. He was successful and living his life. Out of nowhere he disappeared with no trace leaving behind all his belongings. In the aftermath it comes out he had a substance abuse issue and there are rumors rippling of possbily being a closeted gay. Could this be why not only his family but his own community “swept” this case under the rug?!
