Penno: Part 2

Jayden Penno-Tompsett vanished from Charters Towers, Queensland after a 20 hour drive from Newcastle, NSW with travel companion Lucas Tattersall on New Year’s Eve 2017.

In this second episode we speak with Jayden’s aunty, Sharelle Harwood, Townsville Bulletin senior journalist Trudy Brown, and Charters Towers locals Yvonne Schouten and Samantha Schouten.

We rule out some theories and consider two remaining theories still to consider.  We look at the timeline and people who have raised suspicions with those following the case.
