Damien went missing following a night out with friends near his home, after agreeing with his mum that he could stay out two hours after his usual curfew.  He never made it home, and his body has never been found.

Damien’s case forms the latest in a string of true crime hits. And if Making A Murderer and Serial’s success is anything to go by, we think it’s going to be pretty big.
