Episode 39: Zahra Baker (Part 2)

November 24, 2020

Last week, I started telling you the story of 10-year-old Zahra Baker, who kept her brilliant smile and sunshiney outlook despite surviving two bouts of cancer, the amputation of one leg, the loss of her hearing, and growing up without her mother. When her father brought a new woman into her life, Zahra was excited to have a stepmother, but as soon as the family moved from Australia to the stepmother’s native state of North Carolina, Zahra began showing up at school with bruises when she showed up at all.

In October of 2010, Adam and Elisa Baker reported Zahra missing, but within days, Elisa started talking and leading investigators to multiple locations where parts of Zahra’s little body had been dumped. 

This is the conclusion of the unbelievable story of Zahra Baker.
