Erika Cirioni's case isn't like the others we've explored on our podcast, "Case Unsolved." While there surely was a crime scene, police never found it. Until March 2012, when some children found her remains in the woods in Montville, she technically was considered a missing person. That was more than five years after she vanished on New Year's Eve 2006.

In this week's episode of "Case Unsolved," which was released today, we'll dig deeper into the years that followed Erika's last known moments. We'll explore where police and family members looked for her, visit the site where she finally was found and look into the issues police have had with solving the case.

You can listen to the episode, as well as a trailer and the first episode of the case, at www.caseunsolvedpodcast.com 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.
