The mystery of Iraq war veteran Chase Massner is the hottest topic on Crime Online’s podcast call-in line. Listeners of “Crime Stories with Nancy Grace” have been raising good questions about the investigation.

Massner was 26 when he disappeared after spending the night at a friend’s home in Kennesaw, Georgia, following a marital dispute with his wife on March 27, 2014. Several massive searches over the following months failed to find a trace of the father of two young girls.
