Case 165

Nicholas Barclay

*** Content Warning: child victim ***

In 1994, 13-year-old Nicholas Barclay disappeared after playing basketball with his friends in his home town of San Antonio, Texas. Years went by with no sign of him. Just when his family thought all hope was lost, in October 1997 they received a call from a police officer in the Spanish city of Linares. Nicholas had been found wandering the local streets, alive and well.

A harrowing and unbelievable story soon emerged, involving an international paedophile ring, torture, a homicide investigation, and a troubled family. At the heart of it all was a man named Frederic Bourdin.
