INTERMOUNTAIN PI PODCAST | EP. 28 | JANUARY 7, 2020 | BILL FLANAGAN, WRONGFUL CONVICTIONS AND THE CAL HARRIS ACQUITTAL
On the morning of September 11, 2001, the Islamic terrorist group, al-Qaeda struck several targets in the U.S., including New York City. As a result, it was the deadliest terrorist attack in U.S. history. Later that very same night, about 224 miles away in upstate New York, 35-year-old, Michelle Harris, finished her shift at Lefty’s, a popular burger and beer joint. Michelle was a petite, blond mother of four going through a divorce with her husband, Cal Harris. Later, on the morning of September 12th, the Harris’ nanny discovered Michelle’s van. It was parked at the bottom of the driveway, a short distance from the Harris’ home. Additionally, it was unlocked and the keys were still in the ignition. That was 19 years ago. Since that time, the body of Michelle Harris has never been found.
