Truth Be Told Presents: She Has A Name

4.8/5

Critic Rating

Host Tonya Mosley has spent most of her career telling other people’s stories, now she is focusing on her own family. In the summer of 1987, Tonya’s sister Anita disappeared without a trace. It took 33 years of searching and her son’s DNA to connect Anita to a grave just outside of Detroit. But finding the body was just the beginning: Anita had been murdered. This isn’t just another whodunit, She Has A Name peels back the layers of Anita’s murder to reveal a city fighting for its own survival. (On the same feed as Turth Be Told other seasons)

"She Has a Name is giving me real You Didn’t See Nothin’ vibes—that’s one of the biggest compliments I could give a podcast. This family mystery feels like it’s unfolding before our eyes. It feels like Anita is present, somehow, waiting for us (well, waiting for Tonya and Antonio) to finally tell her story."

Hannah Verdier • The Guardian Apr 4, 2024

"...she’s not just another podcaster on a cold case. Instead, she tells an immensely brave and personal story as she hears about a young Detroit mother who disappeared in the 80s – and who happens to be the sister she never knew..."
