    I love 99% of the cases you choose but I’m having a hard time caring about a bunch of violent Meth dealers. I see a missing Meth dealer as a positive for our society.

    I have to know how you came up with the various fake names for the people in Sean McDuffy episode -- Go Forth? Cowboy? Biggun? Jericho? Stephanie? Was there any rhyme or reason to these names???? :)

    Around my area we have a lot of lakes and rivers.. a lot of people live out their intents and cook their meth out there. What if his buddy told him that some of his buddies we're out on this deserted Road in the woods cooking meth. That would explain why he needed the holsters and the batteries before he got home... what if it was his buddy following him to see if he was going to go to try to steal meth from that area which would seal his belief of being the one who stole his money? his buddy follows him... and either alerts his friend that's out in the woods cooking meth and they kill him... or there really is nobody out in the woods cooking meth it was simply a test and he failed and paid for it with his life

    So tragic when drug dealers and people involved in drug ripoffs go missing.

    As for the fake names given to this cast of bad characters.... Most of them we were using nicknames that these people have used in the past. So some of these individuals know we are talking about them. Nic

    I can understand not having a lot of sympathy for a dealer. But I do have a lot of sympathy for his family, mother, sister and children. Who's to say Sean would not have got his act together, got clean and work to become a good family man? He didn't get that chance, his kids didn't get that chance because of one or several of the people we discussed. Furthermore solving this case only gets more dealers off of the streets. Cheers Nic

    Maybe it was meth head thinking that $1,700 was the big score he was looking for to enable him to clean up his act. I, on the other hand, think he would have blown right through that right away and would look for another "big score". He was in that lifestyle for life or until he ended up in prison or dead.

    I think it is refreshing to listen to a new case. So many podcasts rehash the same cases over and over. I appreciate that you took the chance on a small case that your podcast may help solve. I like your jib.

    Here's what we need to know. Did he buy ammunition for either weapon? Has there been any evidence that these guns we're even in working order when they were given to him? ( they could have been sabotage and not even work there for Jericho wouldn't have been threatened in any way)

    Thanks for the episode guys. So I’ve lived in this part of NC. The thing that gets me is, the gas station in Franklin is the opposite direction of Calhoun from Clay County. Franklin is heading into NC. So it’s strange he goes from Clay county to Franklin (Macon county). Where was the Walmart?

    I wonder how many people died from taking the drugs that Sean sold to them? How many people are alive today that would otherwise be dead if Sean were still alive? Also, it's not true to say that Sean didn't get a chance to be a good person. His whole life was a chance to be a good person, and he used that opportunity to sell people addictive and poisonous substances that kill thousands of people every year because they become addicted to them. I have sympathy for Sean's family, but I have more sympathy for the families of Sean's customers. Sean's death is a mystery but not a tragedy.

    Whenever a father of two dies and those kids will grow up without a father, there is tragedy. Personally I think he wandered off into the woods stoned and his body was probably eaten by wildlife.

    Did u people ever think that he was just robbed. He was pulling out wads of money in public. They just buried the body where nobody could find him. Lots of woods in North Carolina. Shouldn’t have been selling drugs in the first place.

    Drug dealer or not, this is a human being. Who are we to say who’s life is more important than the next persons. Sad that people feel this way.

    Is it not possible that he needed the batteries for the flashlight that night so he could hide the money. If he was being followed, maybe he did this and got stopped in his truck later by some bad people. He might have went with them and when they realized he A. Did not have the money and B. Was not going to tell them, they killed him in a completely different location.

    I don't have my notes in front of me but I believe the Walmart was in the same city/area where Sean dropped off Eric. He then traveled on to the gas station. It is believed that Sean was lost when he decided to stop at the gas station. This is from a statement from the person he called while driving. Nic

    Thanks for covering this case. A lot of true crime shows wouldn't touch a story about a missing person involved in drugs. It had a lot of unpleasantness. Still, Mr. McDuffy was a human being who didn't deserve to be murdered, if that is what happened. Its easy to care about the innocent victims. Those that are less innocent test our convictions. Every recovering addict who has rebuilt their life, once did things they aren't proud of, yet were given another chance they probably didn't deserve.

    Maybe he had the money so he could pay for a new ID and disappear? However, more likely he was murdered by one of the drug dealers mentioned. I have sympathy for him. He had a tough childhood and never really had much of a chance.

    i think sean died in the elements---his purchase of the flashlight, and him taking fishing equipment , to me, says he was planning on staying in the area. He may have been a bit paranoid, if he was high, thinking he was being followed. but if the guy he gave a ride to NC had wanted to kill hin...he wouldve on the way, or when theyvgott got to Nc. thanks for the great podcasts, and truly awesome productions!!!!

    I honestly think he just ran off, but I'm also in the party of people that couldn't care less about a drug dealer, regardless of his family situation. Those kids will be better off without a druggie raising them

    @ Kowboy - technically we didn’t bring your name “all up in that shit”, you did. We referred to someone as Cowboy - you posted your name on this board. We did report local rumors regarding Cowboy as involved in this disappearance and other activities. You and I both know that those local rumors exist. I will call you. Let’s hear your side. Nic

    I lived near that area in NC most of my life, my parents live near that area in Ga - There's so many questions... The closest Wal-Mart to Hayesville would be in Murphy -- this place is SUPER rural, Wal Marts are few and far between. You can get to Franklin from Hayesville but it's back roads and I would have no idea why he would go to Franklin to get to back to Calhoun from Hayesville. Makes no sense unless he was lost. So many questions about this case!

    We spoke to individuals close to the case and as stated on the show we retold local rumors. Lynn if you are local or know the persons talked about in this show you are aware of these same rumors. The names used/created were based on information we found regarding each person mentioned. To you and those who say the names sound real or are based on street names that’s because if someone had a street name we used it. On other occasions we used the first name given to us or last name provided to us by again persons local or close to the case. Lynn I won’t give you my sources but I have provided them to law enforcement. I promise you it did not take much digging to find those rumors discussed by more than one source. Where there is smoke there is fire and I am extremely confident that one of the theories based on local discussed on TCG is the truth. Again everything we found was passed on to law enforcement and is being looked at. Nic

    Don’t car rental companies keep a log of the mileage of their cars? It seems that they would. I would think detectives would check the mileage against the distance of the trip to see how far the truck was actually driven. That would then answer the question if Sean made it back to Calhoun. I don’t think he did. Also, are police releasing any information about signs of a struggle near the truck? Because if he pulled off the road to confront who was following him & there was an altercation, there would be evidence (foot prints, other tire tracks, etc.). Just my thoughts!

    So basically you are speculating events that you got from hearsay from locals that may or may not be druggies as well, although I understand why I'm not sure that it's fair to some of the individuals named
