When you think of a scandal, you might recall headlines in papers, and accusations made against people with power and money. Back in the 1950's, the definition of a scandal was much different. Back then, especially if you were a woman, being a single parent, going through a divorce, having an affair or having a child outside of wedlock would often result in being disowned from your family and community. One woman, back in 1956, rose above it all and has described by one of her daughters as being "ahead of her time". That was until she disappeared after witnessing her boyfriend being shot. This case, despite all its twists and turns, has never been solved. Let's uncover the unsolved murder of Thomas Hotard and the disappearance of Audrey Moate.
