The Disappearance of Nguyet Thu “Wiki” Phung

Stories of the Unsolved

EARLY LIFE:

Nguyet Thu “Wiki” Phung was born on September 18, 1971 in Vietnam. Around 1975, she and her family immigrated to the United States, as her parents wanted to escape the country’s communist takeover. They, Nguyet and her five siblings settled in Snohomish County, Washington.

According to those who knew her, Nguyet rarely went by her first name and would, instead, present herself as “Thu”, her middle name, even in her school yearbooks.

DISAPPEARANCE:

Nguyet was last seen leaving her parents’ apartment in Lynnwood, Washington on May 9, 1991. She’d planned to study at Shoreline Community College, before going to her clerical job at the Federal Building in Seattle, Washington, as was her regular routine.

According to one missing persons poster about her case, she was last seen at the library on the University of Washington campus. It should be noted, however, that this is the only source to…

Chris Jennings

Whereabouts Still Unknown

Chris Michael Jennings, age 16, went missing from Kootenai County, Idaho on September 7, 1980.

He had accompanied his family to the North Idaho State Fair, where they were showing pigs. Chris reportedly became bored and wanted to go home, and his parents didn’t object. His brother also went home. They fed their animals, then Chris headed to a party.. He was never seen again.

In the beginning, his family believed him to be a runaway, as he had been displaying rebellious behavior and was experimenting with alcohol and drugs. There were also family problems; his parents were headed for divorce and frequently argued.

After no word from Chris in the ensuing weeks, his family grew worried and reported his disappearance to the police. There wasn’t much of an investigation at the time, and his parents eventually gave up searching.

Over a decade later, Chris’ sister was startled to receive…

Saul Kassin’sDuped: Why Innocent People Confess and Why We Believe Their Confessions(Prometheus Books, 2022) is a part of the growing body of literature that discusses false confessions, the psychology behind false accusations, and the injustice that is baked into the American judicial system. What I think this book is doing differently is explaining why false confessions are so easily believed and, even more alarmingly, how false confessions can poison every other piece of evidence in a case.

Saul Kassin is a social psychologist and professor, specializing in evidence and trial procedure, as well as the scientific study off false confession. Kassin’s experience makes this book extremely effective. Kassin’s text makes several clear-cut arguments as it explains why innocent people confess, why we believe them, and what can be done to avoid the large numbers of false confessions that are taken in the United States each year…
