Road Trip to Murder
Philip Reagan, 29, is about to start a new chapter in his life by relocating from Cleveland, Ohio to California for a new job. His brother, Matthew Reagan, a 39-year-old husband and father of five young boys, decides to go along for the cross-country road trip. The brothers plan to make an adventure of the drive, visiting national parks and points of interest along the way, but on March 21, 2020, their bodies are discovered beside a remote dirt road on the Navajo reservation near Sawmill, Arizona. Their vehicle is located, stuck in a muddy ditch, about a half-mile from the crime scene, and police assume Matthew and Philip were walking back into town to find help. Whoever murdered the brothers is still at large, leaving the Reagan family desperate for answers, and the Navajo Nation living in fear of a possible killer in their midst.
The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the murders of Matthew and Philip Reagan. If you know anything that could help bring their killer to justice, please leave your tips at tips.fbi.gov, or at unsolved.com.

Is it possible that they might have been shot by an Sig Sauer P365. I believe this would have been a 9mm round. I ask because I stumbled upon other homicide cases and one guy stood out to me because he randomly committed crimes across Arizona and in some cases committed double homicides and drive 200 plus miles back to his home. One news article says that he had a dig Sauer p365 on him at the time of his arrest and that the 9mm rounds matched with multiple homicides across Arizona. One of the locations where he committed a homicide was on the Gila Indian Reservation. He told police that he purchased the gun in March of 2020. His name is Avila.
Why would you get rid of the show? Don’t just erase and ignore inquiries! Have you no respect or concern for the person and families that desire justice? How is it not of societal advantage to keep profiling cases? Minus the ghost, big feet and international cases.
Can we get a go fund me going to keep the podcast alive?
Very sad the podcast is coming to an end. All episodes were brilliantly produced and engaging. Thank you for spreading the word and helping so many people along the way!
Wow, I’m really hoping this is solved soon, I also want to say I’m sad this podcast is ending. This program has helped thousands, like they are trying to help this family, in my cases. I feel it is something that should continue in someway. It is a very informative way to get cases like this out to the world. Again, I really am hoping for this family that justice is found. This is brutal & absolutely random by the looks of it. Please come forward if you know something about this
Very sad story! They get vehicle stuck up, then proceed to walk to get help. Not knowing the area well could there cartels in the area? Is there jail house snitches who know the drug scene? Seems crazy that both men get gunned down while searching out help. God Bless
