This week on Peebles for the People:

On April 3rd, 1994, in the small upstate NY town of New Haven. An 18-year-old girl by the name of Heidi Allen was kidnapped from the convenience store she worked at. It’s been over 25 years since Allen’s disappearance and there is still no trace of her. Two brothers were charged with her kidnapping but two separate trials yielded two different outcomes. More than 25 years later police are no closer to finding out where Heidi is or what happened to her. One man was convicted for Heidi’s kidnapping and presumed murder but his conviction was based on a coerced testimony, no physical or forensic evidence, and no eyewitnesses connecting him to the crime. What happened to Heidi Allen, and why were police and prosecutors so sure that they had the right guy?
