The Labyrinth

The Labyrinth is a podcast documentary series narrating the case of a mysterious disappearance from a National Forest in Arizona. Janet Castrejon disappeared in 2015 while she was camping with her family in a remote location near the Chiricahua Mountains when she seemingly vanished into thin air without anybody noticing. It turns out other similar disappearances occurred nearby around the same time, prompting questions as to whether there may have been a connection between them. 

The Labyrinth also explores the general topic of people going missing from National Parks. In this podcast, you will hear candid interviews with members of law enforcement agencies, the families of the missing as well as insights from renowned crime analyst Laura Richards.


Ottavia McHenry is a journalist and freelance writer focusing on cold cases and missing persons stories. She has been watching true crime shows since she was a small child.

Ottavia stumbled upon the stories described in The Labyrinth while she was working on a story for a travel magazine that took her to a remote town in Arizona. She was immediately captivated by these unresolved cases which led her into an investigation and research that spanned over two years.

Ottavia previously created another podcast series, Missing Alissa, in collaboration with Raz Yalov.
