Dead in the Water: Penny's story PART ONE

This is part one of Penny Farmer's remarkable story about her brother Chris and his girlfriend Peta who went off travelling to South America in 1978. Peta wrote home detailed letters every week and then the letters suddenly stopped. In this two-parter Penny describes the pain of Chris and Peta not coming home and their slow realisation that something dreadful had happened to them in the sea off Guatemala at the hands of Silas Boston. In this first part we hear about how Penny experienced their disappearance as she prepared to go off to university and their discovery of the horrific fate the couple had come to which set Penny on a 40 year quest to find and convict their killer - one which facebook held the key to in 2015. 


Our podcast recommendation of the week is 'Love Stories with Dolly Alderton'.
