'Unsolved Mysteries' Creator Reveals New Information On Rey Rivera Case

'Unsolved Mysteries' Creator Reveals New Information On Rey Rivera Case

When Unsolved Mysteries dropped on Netflix a couple of months ago, we were so gripped.

Baffled by each episode, we had many questions - but one case that we were especially hooked to was the very first, 'Mystery on the Rooftop'.

In case you need a recap on what happened, in 2006, finance journalist Rey Rivera left his house in the middle of the night after receiving a phone call. He was never seen alive again.

After a six day search, Rey's body was found at the Belvedere Hotel, where it was believed he had fallen from the roof and into an unused conference room.

The police suspected he had died by suicide, but Rey's family do not accept this and have always been suspicious that there was more to it.

There are a number of other reasons why the suicide theory doesn't add up. For one, the hole in the conference room roof - which Rey seemingly fell through - is positioned oddly far away from the roof.

Even if the journalist - who was wearing flip flops - had taken a running jump it's unlikely his body would have landed in the room.

Added to that, no one saw or heard Rey jump, or spotted him at the Belvedere Hotel that night. Meanwhile, his glasses and mobile phone, found close to his body, didn't have a scratch on them.

Now, adding even more intrigue into the case, co-creator and showrunner Terry Dunn Muerer has revealed a new piece of information.

Speaking on the Netflix podcast You Can't Make This Up, she said an unknown person had been calling up the police station enquiring about Rey's computers after they were taken in to be examined.

"When Allison went to the police station to pick up Rey's computer, the detective mentioned someone had called a couple of times and asked to pick up the computers and was very interested in the status of the computers. Alison was very troubled," she said.

Terry also addressed a phone call that was made to Rey on the day of his disappearance, urging the person on the line to come forward.

"One of the most baffling parts of this case is someone made that phone call to Rey and they've never come forward," she said. "We'd love for someone to come forward and tell us what that phone call was about."

If you're yet to watch, you can catch Unsolved Mysteries over on Netflix now.
