Episode 26: Unique Harris

July 24, 2017

In the early morning hours of October 10th, 2010, Unique Harris went missing from her Washington D.C. apartment while her two sons and great niece slept in the next room. She has never been seen or heard from again. In this episode we speak to Unique’s mom, Valencia Harris, and Cpt. Michelle Caron from the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department about the details of Unique’s case. We also speak to Natalie Wilson, co-founder of the Black and Missing Foundation, about the social and systemic issues that are brought to light when a person of color goes missing.
