Episode 1: Erika goes from homebody to drug user

Erika Cirioni was 26 when she went missing on New Year's Eve 2006. Her family immediately was concerned; even though she had turned to drugs in her later years, it wasn't like her to stay away from home. Her remains, covered by some rocks in a field in Montville, weren't found for more than five years.

The first episode of the "Case Unsolved" podcast on Erika Cirioni is available beginning today. We'll explore what life was like for Erika growing up in some of the poorer areas of New London and Norwich, and what might have turned her from a homebody into someone getting in trouble with the law.

You can listen to it, as well as a trailer on the case, at or on any podcast app. Previously, "Case Unsolved" looked at the 1984 murder of Desiree Michaud in Groton and the 1995 murder of William Spicer Jr. in Groton.
