SPACE CASE-EP.215 (The Case of the Somerton Man)

On this week’s episode of Space Case, we head Down Under for a cold case that’s not as cold as it used to be. In the late 1940s a man was found dead on the beach in Somerton Park in South Australia. For decades authorities could not find a lead on the man’s case and even though there were vague clues, he could not be identified. Fast forward about 70 years and a reprint of the story in the paper inspires a man to take on the case himself (relatable) and what he finds turns out to be an adventure in genealogy.
