This is an excerpt from Murder, She Told podcast’s special two-part series, The Incredible Life of Tot Harriman.

In July of 2001, 57-year-old Tot Harriman and her car vanished without a trace on Highway 35 between Houston and her destination of Corpus Christi. Her son fought tooth and nail to keep his mom’s case in spotlight— to make people care… but without clues pointing to an answer, the attention on Tot’s case tapered off, and the trail eventually went cold.

To this day, her case remains unsolved. But Tot had an incredible life, and a bright legacy that still shines today through her family, the communities she helped build… and it’s a story that deserves to be heard. To understand where Tot was in her life at the moment she vanished, you have to understand her journey to get there. This is a story of survival, love, and the strength of the human spirit. This is The Incredible Life of Tot Harriman on Murder, She Told.
