The Disappearance of Ricky Lee Franks: 1985, Nashville
Listen now
Description
On Friday, June 7th, 1985, Nashville’s The Fan Fair, also known as “The Country Explosion” was days from its grand opening, and the city was flooded with strangers; the same afternoon, a man named Ricky Lee Franks would return to Nashville, his hometown, and see his family—briefly—before disappearing. Ricky Lee Franks had been living in a group home in Dickson, TN, and no one—not the cold-case detective now assigned to his case, or Ricky’s eldest sister, Sylvia—is quite sure how Ricky made his way back to Nashville that Friday. They also don’t know what happened afterward. . . though there have been leads that have taken investigators across state lines. This two-part series looks at Ricky’s disappearance and Sylvia’s near-40-year-quest to find her brother.  -Go to https://www.functionofbeauty.com/FALLLINE to take your Hair Goals quiz, and you’ll save 25% on your first order. -Go to https://www.framebridge.com/ and use promo code FALLLINE to save an additional 15% off your first order. -Sign up today at https://www.butcherbox.com/FALLLINE to get a 10-14 lb turkey FREE with your first box Tickets to The Raymond Green International Outreach Gala: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/a-night-of-unity-black-tie-gala-tickets-404902402987?aff=estw&utm-campaign=social&utm-content=attendeeshare&utm-medium=discovery&utm-source=tw&utm-term=listing   Submit a case to The Fall Line: https://www.thefalllinepodcast.com/case-submissions   Written, researched, and hosted by Laurah Norton, with research assistance from Bryan Worters, Kyana Burgess, and Michaela Morrill/Interviews by Brooke Hargrove/Produced, scored, and engineered by Maura Currie/Content advisors are Brandy C.
