One of the best things about traveling is getting to meet new and interesting people along the way. But just how much do you really know about the guy sitting two rows behind you on the plane… or the person offering to split a taxi with you?

In this whirlwind episode, you'll hear about three unsuspecting tourists who suddenly disappeared without a trace. That is until their body parts started showing up in Singapore and Thailand. The perpetrator - a fugitive who'd mastered butchery skills in prison.
