Episode 270: The Girl Who Cried Orphan - Barbora Skrlova, Part 1

For our first series of 2023, we’ll do a deep dive into a case that has so many bizarre twists and turns a Hollywood horror movie was later based on it. In this first part of a 2-part series, a child who has been placed in a children’s home after allegations of abuse goes missing. When he’s found over a thousand miles away in the company of a strange man, the police discover a shocking secret. He is not who he said he was - nor is he a young boy - but an adult woman. The story of Barbora Skrlova only becomes more strange as the truth is revealed.
