If You Went Missing with Todd Matthews

Todd Matthews, NAMUS, Cookeville Podcast, Better Together with Kosta Yepifantsev

Join Kosta and his guest: Todd Matthews, one of the leading voices in the true crime community, a pioneer of the amateur sleuthing, an architect of that community’s online presence as well as the US government programs to identify missing and unidentified persons (NAMUS), Executive Director of The Doe Network and a sought-after speaker and consultant.

Todd is believed to be the first person to solve a cold unidentified remains case using online tools, solving the thirty-year mystery of “Tent Girl.” He quickly became one of the online sleuthing community’s leading lights, helping to found The DoeNetwork and serving as the media director for that program and Project EDAN. A leading expert on issues pertaining to solve cases of missing and unidentified, he has provided expert commentary for Discovery ID, national/local news outlets, VICE, Reveal, Oxygen, and the History Channel. Also served as a consultant for Jerry Bruckheimer and Dick Wolf on scripted entertainment projects.
