Disturbed: A True Horror Podcast

8. The Disappearance of Asha Degree

June 18, 2020

In the early morning hours of February 14, 2000, and for reasons unknown, 9 year old Asha Degree packed her bookbag, left her family home north of the city and began walking along nearby North Carolina Highway 18 despite heavy rain and wind. Several passing motorists saw her; when one turned around and began to approach her to see if she needed help, she left the roadside and ran into a wooded area. In the morning, her parents discovered her absence. No one has seen Asha since.

If you have any information into the disappearance of Asha Degree, please contact the Cleveland County Sheriff's Office at 704-484-4822
