Episode 168 – Gumshoe. Hitman. Fraudster. Spy. – The Disappearance Of Rick Post

52-year-old Rick Post was bound to a chair, inside the shower stall of an abandoned house. His mouth was duct-taped shut. Even if he could scream, no one would hear him.

His abductors paced back and forth flashing their instruments of torture. He’d been in this Tijuana dungeon for five days, subjected to relentless rounds of violent beatings. They’d also done a number on his fingers with a set of pliers.

You’ll hear about jealousy, vengeance, tainted love, and paranoia. A story that veers wildly to the edge of believability…..and then some.
