CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Imagine if you had been told for years that your aunt and cousin were living their lives in another country. Now image finding out they’d been killed years ago.

Unfortunately for Natalie Mosteller, she doesn't have to use her imagination.

It is a decades-old double murder case that has recently made national headlines -- and it has a connection to the Tri-State. Bobby Whitt, 10, lived with his mother Myong and father John Russell Whitt in Brown County. Family members say they’d been told that Myong took the boy to go live and be raised across the glove in South Korea.

“My uncle is an amazing con man,” says Mosteller.

The bodies of Myong and the boy were found separately in 1998 -- one in North Carolina, the other in South Carolina. But at the time, police didn’t even know they were related.

Mosteller was a guest this week on the Rob Williams Anytime podcast. You can hear her heartbreaking re-telling of the story below:

Years later, Mosteller’s uncle eventually confessed to the murders while locked up on other charges.

Loved ones are trying to raise money to bring both of the bodies back to Ohio and have them buried near family.
