Your home is your castle, right? It’s the one place in the world where you’re supposed to be able to be completely safe.

Yet, it’s only as safe as you make it in reality. If you let someone into your home that doesn’t belong there, your world may change in an instant and not always for the better.

Cristie and Joseph Codd found that out when they tied the knot and moved to a beautiful town in North Carolina. A person that they let into their lives would ruin theirs forever. It took a long time for the world to work out what happened. Here’s what you need to know:

10. They Had Just Married And Had A Baby Coming, But Went Missing

Cristie was a presenter on the Food Network and she’d recently married her husband Joseph. Their joy was completed by the news that Cristie was pregnant and that the two of them would soon be the three of them. Everything was going perfectly for the couple until they disappeared.

It seemed highly unlikely that the couple had decided to disappear from their own lives. Not only was Cristie something of a celebrity in the food arena, but the couple were food gurus. They’d made plans for and paid for a restaurant and farm. There was no way they were just going to hightail it into the distance. So where were they?

8. The Police Investigate The Disappearance

The couple’s family noticed that they had gone missing right away and they soon contacted the local police department. Unfortunately, at first things were slow going in terms of their investigation and then they received a tip that had the power to throw open the investigation. You won’t believe what it was.

7. The Clue Was In The Trash

This might sound ridiculous, but it was the neighbor of a man named Robert James Owens who called the police. The neighbor wanted them to know that they’d seen Robert carrying a large number of trash bags out of his home and disposing of them. It seemed out of place. The police knew it wasn’t much but decided to investigate.

6. The Disappearance Of Zebb Quinn

Zebb Quinn was 18 years old when he disappeared in the year 2000 in Asheville, North Carolina. It was 15 years before the Codds would vanish from their homes. What did Zebb have in common with the Codds? Robert James Owens had been a prime suspect in relation to Zebb’s case. On learning this, the police jumped into action and you won’t believe what they found next.
