New podcast on the Johnny Gosch case

Postby Marionumber1 » Wed May 23, 2018 10:23 pm

Many people here are probably familiar with the abduction of Johnny Gosch, especially given how it's intertwined with the Franklin scandal. I wanted to share a recently-started podcast whose purpose is to reinvestigate and hopefully solve the case after all these years: https://player.fm/series/faded-out The host, Sarah DiMeo, is very sincere in her mission: she doesn't dismiss the pedophile ring claims out of hand, and tends to believe Noreen Gosch and Paul Bonacci, but renounces the more questionable characters such as Ted Gunderson and is devoted to gathering credible evidence. In other words, the podcast fits quite well with the spirit of Rigorous Intuition. I've spoken with her a couple times to share information on some more obscure details about the Gosch case.

There was an interesting episode this Thursday: https://player.fm/series/faded-out/ep-1 ... -had-wrong Chris Birge, a former West Des Moines paperboy who lived in Johnny's neighborhood and knew him personally, contacted Sarah about 2 weeks ago to claim that the official story in Johnny's kidnapping was incorrect. Every account of the abduction says:

  • Johnny went to get his papers at the corner of 42nd Street and Ashworth Road, where a man in a blue car approached him asking for directions
  • The man spooked Johnny and he decided to leave, heading down 42nd Street to start his deliveries at the corner of 42nd Street and Marcourt Lane
  • As the man in the blue car drove off, he flicked his dome lights and a tall man came out on 42nd Street, following behind Johnny to 42nd/Marcourt
  • Johnny's wagon was found abandoned near 42nd/Marcourt as a car ran the stop sign at that intersection and turned left (north)

Chris says that Johnny's paper drop was actually at 42nd/Marcourt, not 42nd/Ashworth. He insists that he saw Johnny walking down Marcourt Lane that morning. Beyond that, he says that Johnny always got his papers at 42nd/Marcourt; his route that morning wasn't a one-time event.

I am personally skeptical of this, since multiple witnesses went on record way back in 1982 and 83 stating that Johnny got his papers at 42nd/Ashworth. Chris initially just accused two of the witnesses (Mike Seskis and John Rossi) of lying, but he's since backed down from that assertion, and seems to support the idea of mistaken identity. But even if they mistook someone else for Johnny that morning, such a mistake would only occur if Johnny usually did go to 42nd/Ashworth. And Johnny's father, who accompanied him on his paper route every Sunday morning except the one on which he was abducted, also never challenged the location of the route.

Still, it's nice that Sarah's podcast has been able to draw in all these witnesses who've never spoken on record before, and hopefully there will be more who provide a fuller picture of what happened that morning. I doubt Chris' account (at least in its entirety) but it could end up being corroborated.

I do ultimately have to rescind my endorsement of this podcast. While Faded Out initially seemed promising, the direction it's gone in throughout the past few months has been so off-base that I can't continue to support it. Noreen Gosch and Paul Bonacci are being treated as unstable liars, while two prime suspects in the abduction (Johnny's dad and Sam Soda) have been portrayed as credible witnesses who are permitted to rewrite the truth of the case without any challenge from Sarah. I tried many times to raise my concerns about Chris Birge (see above) and Johnny's father, and was brushed aside. There is one aspect of Faded Out, its exploration of local pedophilia in Des Moines, that has value, but by and large it's shaping up to be a limited hangout at best.

Here is an examination of the evidence that Johnny's dad, Leonard John Gosch, has not only lied about numerous facts of the case but should be considered a suspect in his son's abduction: http://cavdef.org/w/index.php?title=Johnny_Gosch_abduction#Father.27s_involvement
