Really like it so far. The presentation is getting better. The only drawback is that since it's a new podcast, there are no old cases to sift through. Keep up the good work!

S2 Ep101: Hae Min Lee & Adnan Syed: The Trouble With Jay (Part 7)
8034
It was an unseasonably warm January afternoon in Baltimore County, Maryland when 18-year-old Woodlawn High School senior Hae Min Lee left school in her gray 1998 Nissan Sentra and headed out to pick up her six-year-old cousin from kindergarten before going to her job at the local LensCrafters. But sometime after leaving Woodlawn High School and before picking up her little cousin, Hae Min Lee vanished into thin air. Less than a month later, maintenance worker Alonzo Sellers was driving back to his job at Coppin State College and drinking a beer when he realized he had to use the bathroom, and it couldn’t wait. Mr. Sellers pulled over on the side of the road and walked deep into the woods to relieve himself, at which point he made a gruesome discovery. According to his later testimony, Mr. Sellers said quote, “when I looked down I seen something that looked like hair, something that was covered by dirt. And I looked real good again, and that’s when I seen what looked like a foot” end quote. Alonzo Sellers had stumbled upon the body of Hae Min Lee, she had been strangled to death by the bare hands of her attacker, and within a few weeks, the police would make an arrest for her murder. But, the suspect was a person that no one would have suspected capable of such a horrific crime, the ex-boyfriend of Hae, a sweet and smart 17-year-old named Adnan Syed. But, stay with us, because, it’s complicated…

S2 Ep94: Tara Calico: The Sheriff's Son (Part 3)
6099
At around 9:30 on the morning of September 20th, 1988, 19-year-old Tara Calico left her New Mexico home and set out for her daily 17-mile bike ride along highway 47. Before leaving, she playfully asked her mother, Patty Doel, to come and get her if she wasn’t back by noon, because Tara had a lot of other things to do that day, and she needed to be kept on schedule. Tara did not return by noon, in fact, Tara Calico would never come home again, leaving behind multiple eyewitnesses who had seen her that morning, and very few clues as to what had happened to her, including pieces of her walkman and suspicious-looking bike tracks. Tara’s disappearance is considered to be an enduring mystery, but reportedly for those who live in Tara’s hometown of Belen New Mexico, it’s not a mystery at all. In fact, according to Melinda Esquibel, a former classmate of Tara’s and podcast host, “What makes the town charming is the same thing that makes it kind of scary. That you will go to great lengths to protect your own."

Crime Weekly Presents | Wolves Among Us, Season 1, The Larry Lavin Story
225
On the surface, there was nothing remarkable about Larry Lavin. He lived in a quiet neighborhood with his wife and family, drove a Volvo, and practiced dentistry in Philadelphia. But, from 1978 to 1984, Dr. Lavin ran one of the largest cocaine enterprises on the entire eastern seaboard. 

Through the voices and perspectives of law enforcement, drug runners, friends, business associates and Larry Lavin himself, Wolves Among Us, Season One, The Larry Lavin Story, tells the story of Lavin’s dual life, his impact on Philadelphia culture in the late 70s and early 80s, and the stunning events that led to his capture.  

Wolves Among Us is a presentation and creation of  Peabody-nominated C13Originals, a Cadence13 Studio.

S2 Ep91: Connie Dabate: The Fitbit Tell-All (Part 3)
6694
It was December 23rd, 2015, the morning before Christmas Eve, and most residents of Ellington Connecticut were getting their last minute holiday tasks completed before the season went into full swing. Richard and Connie Dabate got their two young sons on the school bus and then got ready to do their own thing for the day.  By 8:30 AM Richard was headed to his job as a computer network administrator in Bloomfield, and Connie was getting dressed for her spin class at the local YMCA. It was a normal weekday morning, like any other, but within just a few hours, tragedy would descend on the quiet, upscale neighborhood that the Dabate family called home. By 10AM, 39 year old Connie Dabate had been shot twice and was lying dead in her basement, and her husband Rick was found by first responders tied to a metal folding chair. He claimed a masked intruder had attacked him and then murdered his wife, and for months the community mourned the loss of Connie. Everyone wanted to know who could have done such a terrible thing to a young mother, a woman who didn’t have an enemy in the world. There was very little information coming from law enforcement; all they said was that the community had nothing to fear, but people still had a lot of questions. It would be over a year before anyone would have answers, however, and during that time a case was built on following the money, the secrets and the electronic paper trail which would lead to the shocking conclusion and the answer to who could have done something so terrible to Connie Dabate and her family.

Richard and Connie Dabate got their two young sons on the school bus and then got ready to do their own thing for the day.  By 8:30 AM Richard was headed to his job as a computer network administrator in Bloomfield, and Connie was getting dressed for her spin class at the local YMCA. It was a normal weekday morning, like any other, but within just a few hours, tragedy would descend on the quiet, upscale neighborhood that the Dabate family called home. By 10AM, 39 year old Connie Dabate had been shot twice and was lying dead in her basement, and her husband Rick was found by first responders tied to a metal folding chair. He claimed a masked intruder had attacked him and then murdered his wife, and for months the community mourned the loss of Connie. Everyone wanted to know who could have done such a terrible thing to a young mother, a woman who didn’t have an enemy in the world. There was very little information coming from law enforcement; all they said was that the community had nothing to fear, but people still had a lot of questions. It would be over a year before anyone would have answers, however, and during that time a case was built on following the money, the secrets and the electronic paper trail which would lead to the shocking conclusion and the answer to who could have done something so terrible to Connie Dabate and her family.

S2 Ep92: Summer Wells: The Cornbread Mafia and Other Theories (Part 3)
5635
From the very beginning, the disappearance of five year old Summer Wells has caused confusion and frustration for everyone following it, from people watching it unfold on the news and on the internet and the websleuths who have made this case their personal project, to the law enforcement officials trying to put the pieces together. Due to the widespread attention, the investigation and news coverage of this case has been marked with a great deal of speculation and rumors, which is often what happens when so much is left unknown, and when the official narrative doesn’t really add up. Stephanie covered Summer’s disappearance on YouTube when it initially happened, but since then there have been more updates and more information has come to the light, and we know there were a lot of people who wanted us to talk about this case on Crime Weekly, because Derrick would be able to contribute his unique detective perspective and hopefully it will provide us with some insight of what happened here, and if there is any truth to the multiple rumors that have muddied the waters of this case.

S2 Ep89: The Springfield Three: Theories and Suspects (Part 3)
6678
It was the 90’s in Springfield, Missouri. A time when teenagers would spend their weekends gliding around to pop music at Skateport, the local roller rink, or browsing the stores at the Battlefield Mall. On June 6th, 1992, two high school seniors graduated with the rest of their Kickapoo High School class and then spent an evening celebrating the start of the rest of their lives. The last time anyone saw 19 year old Suzie Streeter and 18 year old Stacy McCall, they were heading to Suzie’s house to spend the night. But the next morning, Suzie and Stacy were gone, along with Suzie’s mother, Sherrill Levitt. The three women had vanished without a trace, and to this day no one knows what happened to them. Some speculated that they had run away, many felt they had been abducted, and one local law enforcement official claimed it looked as if they had been raptured, lifted up to the heavens, there one second and gone the next. This is the case of the Springfield Three people who disappeared from a house in the middle of the night, never to be seen or heard from again.

S2 Ep86: Danielle Redlick: The Verdict Is In (Part 3)
6743
The statistics tell us that intimate partner homicide is far more common than any of us would like to believe, with nearly one out of five murder victims being killed by a person they were in a romantic relationship with. It’s hard to understand how love and passion can turn to hate and violence, but if you look at the studies, it seems the most common motive is jealousy. But when the woman in the relationship is the attacker, and the man is the victim, and there is a history of domestic violence between them, we have to examine the details a bit more closely, because for society as a whole, it’s hard to determine what is right, what is wrong, and what is a moral gray area. In January of 2019, after allegedly dealing with years of physical abuse and emotional neglect, 46 year old Danielle Redlick stabbed her husband of over a decade. It would be eleven hours before she would call 911 to report his death, at which time she claimed 65 year old Michael Redlick had died from a heart attack after stabbing himself. During a police investigation, law enforcement discovered that the true situation was not as straightforward as Danielle had made it seem, and she was soon under arrest for murder, but during her trial all of the details came out, painting a complicated picture of a relationship that had maybe always been far from perfect.

S2 Ep83: Brittanee Drexel: Monster Among Us (Part 3)
5575
Brittanee Drexel was a seventeen year old girl who loved to have fun, and so when she was offered the opportunity to leave behind the wet and gray Spring weather of her Upstate New York hometown and escape to the sandy beaches and sunshine of South Carolina with her friends, it was no wonder that she took it. But she had done so without the permission of her parents, who were concerned that if Brittanee traveled to a different state without adult supervision, she might encounter danger, or get into trouble. But, the lively teenager had already made up her mind, and she was committed to spending Spring Break away from the stress and worries of her life, which is why she climbed into a car on the evening of April 22nd, 2009, leaving it all in the rearview mirror and driving towards the promise of fun and sun, not knowing that something far darker awaited her down south, because Brittanee Drexel was in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for just sixty hours before she vanished off a busy road, never to be seen alive again. And what followed would be over a decade of fear, sadness, confusion and frustration from her family and community, before a recent break in the case revealed what had happened to the energetic teenager who had just been looking for a few days of fun.

S2 Ep79: Aaron Hernandez: A Tragic End (Part 5)
8437
Fifteen year old Matthew Kent was out for a jog on the evening of June 17th, 2013 when he discovered something that would change the course of multiple lives. Kent had just finished working out at the gym, and he was training for his high school track team, so he decided to run the short distance back to his home in Westwood Estates in North Attleboro, Massachusetts. His route brought him through a secluded clearing in an industrial park around 5PM where he saw a man, lying on his back, not moving. Kent approached the man to ask if he was alright, and when he received no response, he called the police. The body was that of 27 year old Odin Lloyd, a semi professional football player and a linebacker for the Boston Bandits, a family man whose two loves in life were his family and football, but for some unexplainable reason he had been shot to death, execution style. Odin was not from North Attleboro, and it wasn’t the kind of place where random acts of violence occurred, but law enforcement quickly discovered that he only knew two people in the area. Shayanna Jenkins, the sister of Lloyd’s girlfriend, and Aaron Hernandez, Shayanna’s boyfriend and tight end for the New England Patriots. No one wanted to believe that a young and talented professional football player who had just signed a 40 million dollar contract could possibly be involved with this brutal murder, but as the investigation progressed, a pandoras box was opened, revealing that there was another, darker side to Aaron Hernandez.

Odin was not from North Attleboro, and it wasn’t the kind of place where random acts of violence occurred, but law enforcement quickly discovered that he only knew two people in the area. Shayanna Jenkins, the sister of Lloyd’s girlfriend, and Aaron Hernandez, Shayanna’s boyfriend and tight end for the New England Patriots. No one wanted to believe that a young and talented professional football player who had just signed a 40 million dollar contract could possibly be involved with this brutal murder, but as the investigation progressed, a pandoras box was opened, revealing that there was another, darker side to Aaron Hernandez.

S2 Ep74: Sherri Papini: Lies Unraveled (Part 2)
7232
Laci Peterson, Suzanne Morphew, Gabby Petitio, Jennifer Dulos these are all names that we unfortunately only know because they vanished mysteriously, and under very suspicious circumstances. In all of these cases, the world held its breath and watched, hungry for every breaking news story and piece of newly uncovered evidence, hoping for the best but expecting the worst. The disappearance of 34 year old Sherri Papini was no different. Her name and face could be seen on every major newspaper and news network after she vanished on November 2nd, 2016. But unlike these other women, Sherri Papini made it home, worse for wear, but alive and able to return to the loving embrace of her husband and their two young children. Another difference between Sherri Papini and someone like Laci Peterson, or Gabby Petitio, is that it now appears that she was never missing at all, and last month, in March of 2022, Sherri was arrested and charged with faking her own kidnapping. We can all acknowledge that if this is true, Sherri did a horrible thing. Not only did her plan cost the public hundreds and thousands of dollars, but it may cast a darker filter over any women who genuinely do go missing in the future. But what led up to her decision to do this, and why did she do this? Those are some of the questions we will be exploring during our breakdown of this case.

S2 Ep72: Blaze Bernstein: A Diary of Hate (Part 2)
5950
The experience of going away to college is a memorable milestone in each person's life. It is usually the time when we transition away from childhood and start down the path of adulthood. We often meet new friends whom we would not have encountered in our hometowns, and we are exposed to different cultures and ideas that can be explored and enjoyed. This was what Blaze Bernstein was looking forward to when he began attending the University of Pennsylvania in the Fall of 2016, and for a young man who was already exceptional, a wider array of personalities and experiences served to bring to light the man he would surely become. Blaze always faced each new chapter in his life with curiosity and bravery, because his hunger for learning and growing was endless. But when he flew back home to California for winter break, he encountered a challenge that he could not defeat with his light and love. On the evening of January 2nd, 2018, Blaze left the home of his parents to meet up with an old friend, and he never came home. He was not on the plane that was supposed to fly him back to Pennsylvania for the start of the new semester on January 7th, and on January 10th, Blaze’s brutalized body was found in a shallow grave, his bright and promising life snuffed out by ignorance and hate.

S2 Ep70: Julie Dart and Stephanie Slater: Justice Served? (Part 3)
5622
During the 1970’s, a brutal serial killer terrorized the women of Manchester and West Yorkshire England. By the time he was apprehended, Peter Sutcliffe, known as the Yorkshire Ripper, had claimed the lives of thirteen young women and girls, and had attempted to kill at least eight more. Many of them sex workers he had picked up in red light districts. His killings created a culture of fear and suspicion in England. Every man was looked at with a side eye; whether he was your neighbor, teacher, bus driver, or father. Even after Sutcliffe was arrested in January of 1981, there was still a lingering dark cloud, causing women who were walking alone at night to pick up their pace, and glance over their shoulders. But by the early 90’s, the fear had subsided and Peter Sutcliffe and his horrendous crimes had faded to a cold memory. But when the West Yorkshire police received a letter from an anonymous man in July of 1991, alleging that he had kidnapped a prostitute off a street in Chapeltown, those distant, cold memories began to grow more vivid. The letter claimed that unless a ransom of 140 thousand pounds was paid, the girl would be killed, and the clock on Julie Dart’s life began to tick down.

S2 Ep66: DeOrr Kunz Jr.: Parents Become Persons of Interest (Part 2)
8211
It is every parent’s worst nightmare. You take your eyes off your child for a moment, maybe two, and when you turn around, they have vanished. Fortunately, thanks to technological advances and improved search methods, most of these children come home. But when two year old DeOrr Kunz Jr went missing in the Summer of 2015 from a campground in Idaho, he vanished without a trace, literally. A thorough search using police dogs, divers, helicopters, and hundreds of people on foot could not retrieve one trace of little DeOrr, it was as if he had never been there at all. Some wonder if he could have fallen victim to one of the hungry wild animals that prowl the remote wilderness, others believe he could have been abducted by a stranger with dark intentions, but many wonder if what actually happened is much more dark and nefarious than an animal attack, or even a targeted kidnapping.

It was around 7pm on the evening of December 19th, 1979, as Kennedy High School senior Michelle Martinko made her way from her parked car to the newly opened Westdale Mall located on the west side of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. It was a bitterly cold night, and Michelle was not dressed for the weather, so she shivered and clutched her rabbit fur coat around her body until she reached the warmth and safety of the mall entrance. Michelle was only eighteen, but she was a beautiful girl. Her friends said she was the kind of girl that turned heads, even though she seemed blissfully unaware of the effect she had on people. During her time in the mall that evening, Michelle chatted with many of her friends, all of whom would later say she was her normal, happy, sparkling self. But within nine hours, Michelle would be found dead in that same mall parking lot, stabbed and slashed over twenty times, and left to bleed out in her car. Detectives were sure that the crime had been personal, it was just too angry and violent to have been a random attack, but the decades long investigation would reveal that things are not always as they seem.

Agatha Christie once said that a mothers love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path. Most parents feel that their main job is to protect their children from the terrors of the world, and they take this job very seriously, so when we hear of a child that seemingly was tossed to the side and forgotten, we have a very negative and visceral reaction. After all, children are the future, and they deserve a fighting chance. Two year old Caylee Marie Anthony had this chance stolen from her, she had her life stolen from her, and to this day we still don’t understand why. Caylee disappeared on June 16th, 2008, and it would take six months for the world to find out what had happened to her. Her skeletal remains were found inside a laundry bag, discarded in a wooded area. There was evidence that little Caylee’s mouth had been duct taped at the time of her death, and all eyes were on her young mother, Casey Anthony, who had failed to report the toddler missing for over a month, and during this time, Casey was seen at nightclubs and bars, having the time of her life.

Once Ellsburg realized this terrible truth, he made the bold decision to leak the documents, and the consequences altered the course of American history.

There was evidence that little Caylee’s mouth had been duct taped at the time of her death, and all eyes were on her young mother, Casey Anthony, who had failed to report the toddler missing for over a month, and during this time, Casey was seen at nightclubs and bars, having the time of her life.

Shop for your Crime Weekly gear here --> https://crimeweeklypodcast.com/shop

Thirty-three year old Taylor Wright was a strong person, a woman who knew how to take care of herself. She had gone to college and majored in criminal justice, she had graduated from the police academy and was sworn in as a Jacksonville, North Carolina police officer in early 2008. Throughout her time as a police officer, she was dedicated to investigating cases, and bringing wrongdoers to justice, she even wore a bracelet that had a charm on it, in the shape of the scales of justice. Taylor was a woman who did not mince words, and no one who knew her would have ever describe her as meek, or afraid to speak her mind, but everyone loved her because of her kind heart and giving spirit, if you were Taylor’s friend, she would do anything for you, and she expected the same loyalty in return. So when she went missing on September 8th, 2017, many people felt that she had vanished willingly, running away from the many problems that followed her, that was until October 19th, when the skeletonized remains of Taylor Wright were found, buried under potting soil and concrete, wrapped tightly in a hammock, with a bullet hole in her skull.

Amber Jackson was a free spirit. Her parents had passed away, and she had no children, save for her beloved two small dogs. Amber grew up in Fairfax, California, but her love of exploring and visiting new places brought her to paradise in 2000, when she packed up her life and moved to Hawaii’s fourth largest island, Kauai, where there were plenty of beaches to wander, and rainforests to explore. There she lived happily for a decade, but on July 3rd, 2010, Amber’s decomposing remains were found in a remote ravine, and responding law enforcement officials knew that Amber’s life had ended due to foul play, more specifically, a great deal of blunt force trauma to her head and face.

22 year old Gabrielle Venora Petito grew up in Blue Point, NY and it was during her time at Bayport-Blue Point High School that she encountered two factors that would change her life forever. She caught the travel bug, and began going on adventures and seeing new places, and she met Brian Laundrie, a classmate who would become her boyfriend, then her fiance before becoming the last person to see her alive. In 2019, Gabby and Brian began traveling together, and Gabbi documented their adventures on her social media platforms.

Shop for your Crime Weekly gear here --> https://crimeweeklypodcast.com/shop

It was December 24th, 2002, Christmas Eve morning, and in Modesto California, where Laci Peterson lived with her husband Scott, it was a cool, foggy, northern California morning. The young, attractive couple woke up that morning, each with their own plans in mind. Laci had some last minute items to pick up for Christmas dinner at her parents home later, and she also wanted to take her golden retriever McKenzie for a walk. Her husband Scott had plans to go fishing at Berkeley Marina, about an hour and a half away from the couples home. Scott left the house around 9:30 in the morning, and did not return until 4:30 that evening. When he got home, his wife was not there, and she wasn’t answering his calls. He normally would not have been so concerned, but Laci was eight months pregnant with their first child, a son who they had named Connor. Over the course of the next few months, a massive search and investigation took place for Laci, and as Connor’s due date came and went, the need to find mother and child became more urgent, until April 13th, 2003, when the bodies of Laci and her son were found washed up on the shore of San Francisco Bay.

“She’s my baby, we just want her back”, a statement that seems so simple to most of us, but to the mother of nine year old Asha Degree, it was a simple plea made from a desperate heart. When you wake up and find that your small daughter has vanished into thin air, there isn’t much you can say, because there isn’t much that you know. In the United States, more than 99 percent of children reported usually make it home safe, so it wasn’t illogical to have hope that Asha would have been one of those children, but as the years passed, and no new evidence came to light, it became clear that Asha Degree was in that much smaller percentage of missing children, the ones that never do come home. Today on Crime Weekly, we are revisiting this case, and hoping that someone out there knows something that can bring peace to the family of Asha Degree, who to this day still searches for their daughter, and have not given up hope that she might still be alive.

Crime Weekly Presents: Suspect
354
We just started listening to a new True Crime Miniseries from Wondery and Campside Media. It’s called SUSPECT.

A big Halloween party at an apartment complex in Redmond, Washington. Themed rooms and costumed partygoers. But by the end of the party, one of the hosts is dead. The police look to the partiers as the prime suspects: was it the guy in the devil mask, the bank robber, the construction worker? As investigators comb through forensic evidence, witness testimony, DNA, and even consult with a psychic, they zero in on one suspect in particular. But for what reason? Host and reporter Matthew Shaer (Over My Dead Body) returns to the scene of the crime, speaks with everyone about a night that still haunts them years later. It’s a series about race and policing, mislaid justice, cutting-edge science, and the kinds of weighty choices that cops and prosecutors make every day -- choices that, once made, are difficult to reverse.

“It is shocking that someone so loved could vanish without a trace, but entirely possible. It did happen and ten years later I still struggle. The space that once held hopes and dreams for Lauren will never heal. It is replaced by an ache fueled by the not knowing”. Those were the words Charlene Spierer wrote on the ten year anniversary of the disappearance of her daughter Lauren. When Lauren’s parents dropped their daughter off at Indiana University in the Fall 2009 for the start of her freshman semester, they had felt she would be safe to learn and grow and then she would come back home, ready for the next chapter in her life. But Lauren never came back home, and to this day, ten years later, no one has any idea where Lauren Spierer is, but her parents and many others believe that there is someone, or more than one someone, who does know more than they’re saying, and who could help bring the Spierer family some closure.

S1 Ep33: Death By The Bay: What Happened to Robin Pope? (Part 2)
6547
If you have any information regarding this case, please contact Sgt. David Sexton at David.Sexton@Maryland.gov

Kent Island, Maryland, located in Queen Anne County, is the largest island in Chesapeake Bay, and it is a picture perfect place, surrounded by water and large expanses of beaches. It’s a historic place that really embodies coastal living, with so much to do from biking, to swimming, to hiking through lush woods and tidal marshes. It is a place you would want to live if enjoying life is your main objective, and it is where 51 year old Robin Pope was living with her husband and two daughters when she went missing along with her beloved Great Dane Bella in March of 2013. Bella washed up on shore the next day, but it would be another twenty-two days before Robin’s body was found. The last person to see her alive was Robin’s estranged husband, Wayne Pope, but although the police have never been able to say conclusively whether Robin’s death was a result of foul play, or a simple tragic accident, those close to Robin believe they know the truth.

Kent Island, Maryland, located in Queen Anne County, is the largest island in Chesapeake Bay, and it is a picture perfect place, surrounded by water and large expanses of beaches. It’s a historic place that really embodies coastal living, with so much to do from biking, to swimming, to hiking through lush woods and tidal marshes. It is a place you would want to live if enjoying life is your main objective, and it is where 51 year old Robin Pope was living with her husband and two daughters when she went missing along with her beloved Great Dane Bella in March of 2013. Bella washed up on shore the next day, but it would be another twenty-two days before Robin’s body was found. The last person to see her alive was Robin’s estranged husband, Wayne Pope, but although the police have never been able to say conclusively whether Robin’s death was a result of foul play, or a simple tragic accident, those close to Robin believe they know the truth.

S1 Ep31: The Snapchat Murders: Abigail Williams and Liberty German (Part 3)
6543
It is a story that we have all become familiar with. Two small girls in a small town go missing after a carefree day in the woods, a day that was supposed to have been filled with fun, and childhood memories, but turned darker than most of us even realize. Two friends, fourteen year old Libby German and thirteen year old Abby Williams, would be found murdered the next day, and the tight knit community of Delphi Indiana has never been the same. Over the years, this case has been analyzed by thousands of people, but even though video footage of the suspect was captured, as well as audio of what his voice sounds like, the murders of these two, innocent teenage girls have yet to be solved.

In the early morning hours of September 27th,  2015, a fight broke out at a party at 4136 Shady Avenue in Munhall Pennsylvania, a working class community in Alleghany County. This fight ended with one of it’s guests, 23 year old Codi Joyce, becoming unresponsive and being rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival. Although it was understood that Codi had been in a fight with four other people at that party, his death was not investigated as a murder, until his autopsy report showed that he had died from asphixiation due to compression of the neck sustained during a physical altercation with multiple individuals, and the ME ruled Codi’s manner of death as a homicide. That was 2015, and yet today, in 2021, no one has been arrested for this murder, and the question we need to answer today is why.

S1 Ep21: A Mother's Mental Struggle Leads to Murder: Liliana Carrillo
5939
On April 10th 2021, thirty year old Lilliana Carillo of Reseda California killed her three young children, three year old Joanna, two year old Terry, and six month old  Sierra. They were discovered by their grandmother at around 9:30 in the morning, but Lilliana was nowhere to be found, she had already fled the scene. Two of the children showed signs of being drowned, and all three had injuries that indicated they had been bludgeoned. She would later be apprehended and arrested, and once she was in custody Liliana would not deny that her children had died at her hands, but the reasons she gave for why she did this have turned this case into a convoluted maze that has raised many questions about mental health and the role of the system in protecting children from those they should be able to trust the most, their parents.

S1 Ep20: The Murder of Cynthia Hoffman (Part 2)
5850
On June 4th 2019, the body of 19 year old Cynthia Hoffman was found in a creek in Thunderbird Falls park located in Anchorage Alaska. Her feet had been duct taped together, and she had been shot in the back of the head. Cynthia had been reported missing by her father, Timothy Hoffman the day before, and he had told the Anchorage Police Department that his daughter had gone out with her best friend on June 2nd and not returned. He also told him that Cynthia had a learning disability and her brain only functioned at the level of a 12 year old. When you think of the kind of person who would do this to a young and trusting girl like Cynthia, you think of someone evil, a stranger most likely, since no one who knew Cynthia could have ever done this to her, but this wasn’t a stranger who had done this, it was a person that Cynthia considered to be her best friend.

3599
It was just before dawn on April 7th 1994 at the Holly Park apartment complex in Arlington Texas when the residents of one of the buildings were evacuated due to a blazing fire that had started in one of the units. It was a three alarm blaze that damaged eight units and left twenty people displaced, but as the tenants stood outside, huddling together and watching the flames engulf their home, they noticed that someone was missing. 19 year old Missy Grubaugh was not standing amongst them, but her neighbors saw her car in the parking lot. The fire department was able to get the fire under control within an hour so they could locate the source, but they did not anticipate what they would walk in on. Missy was found laying on her bed, naked, and stabbed multiple times through the heart, and police believed that whoever had killed her had started the blaze to cover their tracks and to destroy evidence. In today’s episode we will discuss what happened to Missy, who was just days away from her 20th birthday, and we will find out who did this to her, and why.

On December 16th, 1995, the body of 17 year old Krystal Beslanowitch was found along the Provo River near Midway, a mountain town 38 miles southeast of Salt Lake City Utah. She was found lying face down and completely naked, surrounded by large river rocks which were covered in blood. She had been beaten savagely to the point where she was unrecognizable, and police knew that whoever had murdered Krystal had done so with a lot of rage, utilizing one of the river rocks lying nearby to hit Krystal in her head and face at least a dozen times. Today on Crime Weekly we are going to discuss this case, and how it went cold for over two decades before improved technology and a dedicated police force were able to finally uncover who killed Krystal Beslanowitch.

S1 Ep14: The Murder of Faith Hedgepeth (Part III)
7086
Faith Hedgepeth was born on  September 26th 1992 in Warren County North Carolina. She was part of the Haliwa Saponi Native American tribe and her parents Roland and Connie Hegepeth whose parents divorced only a few months after she was born. Her father Roland moved to Hickory North Carolina, a four hour drive away, and Faith remained with her mother and sister Roland who was eighteen years older than Faith and who felt as if she was a second mother to her baby sister. In high school Faith was very active, actively participating in many clubs and organizations as well as cheerleading, and she was also an honor student which earned her the Gates Millenium Scholarship, a program meant to promote academic excellence and provide the opportunity for outstanding minority students with significant financial need to reach their highest potential. Faith was accepted at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and she and her family had high hopes for her future. Faith knew she wanted to help people, especially children, by becoming a pediatrician or a teacher, and once she completed college she would become the first member of her family to hold a college degree. Faith had her whole life in front of her, and with her intelligence, excellent people skills and big heart, she would make a positive impact on the world. But on September 6th 2012, Faith’s bright light was extinguished. She was found beaten to death in the off campus apartment she shared with her friend, Karina Rosario. Faith was naked from the waist down, her shirt had been pulled over her head, and next to her a hastily scrawled note on a fast food bag was found. The note said quote, “I’m not stupid bitch. Jealous”. Since that day, Chapel Hill police have been tirelessly trying to find the person or persons who brutally murdered Faith Hedgepeth, who was just weeks away from her twentieth birthday. To her family Faith  symbolized love and hope, to her friends she was a constant source of positive energy and fun, and the question still lingers today. Who killed Faith Hedgepeth, and why?

S1 Ep11: The Disappearance of Michaela Garecht (Part II)
5446
On November 19th 1988 two nine year old girls happily rode their scooters to the Rainbow Market on Mission Blvd in Hayward California. It was a beautiful fall morning, like many others in the Bay area, it was the weekend before Thanksgiving and the two friends were excited to be spending time together, and riding away on their own for the first time without a parent in tow. The market wasn’t far, just two blocks away from their homes, and they were feeling all grown up when they coasted into the parking lot and left their scooters outside the front door before going in and purchasing two Mountain Dew’s, two sticks of beef jerky, and two cherry flavored taffys. The two girls were so preoccupied chatting with each other as they left the market, they began to walk home, completely forgetting that they had ridden their scooters there. They hadn’t gotten far before they remembered, and ran back laughing, only to find that one of the scooters was missing. These two little girls were Michaela Garecht and her best friend, Trina Rodriguez, and within moments of finding one of the scooters was gone, nine year old Michaela would be snatched away from her friend, her parents, her happy and safe life, and she would never be seen again.

S1 Ep9: The Murder of JonBenét Ramsey (Part IV)
5758
It was December 26th, 1996 in Boulder Colorado. Boulder had seen a great deal of snow fall the previous week, but by the morning of the 26th, only a trace of it remained, just a small dusting that would most likely disappear as the sun rose. In an upper class Boulder neighborhood, the occupants of stately, million dollar homes were still slumbering peacefully, getting in their last moments of sleep before the day after Christmas chaos began, the cleaning up and getting back into the everyday routine.  But inside 749 15th St, the home of the Ramsey family, it was a much different scene. At 5:52 AM, 911 operator Kim Archueletta received a phone call from a frantic mother claiming she had woken up to a ransom note, and her six year old daughter missing from her bed.

But JonBenét Ramsey had not been taken, she was not missing from her home, she had been there the whole time, and the events that would follow would lead to one of the most tragic mysteries the true crime world has ever known, a case that has often been referred to as the largest unsolved crime in America.

The fourth and final part of our deep dive looks at the remaining suspects, and we discuss our own theories on what happened to JonBenét...

But JonBenét Ramsey had not been taken, she was not missing from her home, she had been there the whole time, and the events that would follow would lead to one of the most tragic mysteries the true crime world has ever known, a case that has often been referred to as the largest unsolved crime in America.

Part three of our deep dive continues with a look at the Boulder PD, and an exploration of potential suspects...

It was December 26th, 1996 in Boulder Colorado. Boulder had seen a great deal of snow fall the previous week, but by the morning of the 26th, only a trace of it remained, just a small dusting that would most likely disappear as the sun rose.

Lisa Guy, and her husband of over thirty years, Joel Guy Sr. were dead, brutally murdered. Pieces of their body strewn around the home where they had lovingly raised their children in for years.

S1 Ep4: The Guy Family Murders (Part I)
2977
It was the morning of November 28th 2012 when Deputy Steven Ballard of the Knox County Sheriffs Office paid a visit to 11434 Goldenview Lane in Knoxville Tennessee. He was there to perform a welfare check on its inhabitants and his body cam was on and recording as he pulled up to the quiet home. Fifty one year old Lisa Guy had been a no show to her place of employment that morning, and it was very out of character for her, especially since she was retiring the following week and her friends at work had planned to take her out to lunch to say goodbye and wish her well in her next chapter. When she hadn’t arrived for work her supervisor Jennifer Whited was so concerned she called the police and asked if they could make sure everything was okay with Lisa and her husband of thirty one years, Joel. What law enforcement would find in that house would indicate that everything was most certainly not okay.

S1 Ep2: The Disappearance of Jennifer Dulos (Part I)
3133
In July of 2017, a 51 year old mother of five requested full custody of her children, telling the court quote “I’m afraid of my husband. I know that filing for divorce and filing this motion will enrage him. I know he will retaliate by trying to harm me in some way. He has the attitude that he must always win at all costs. He is dangerous and ruthless when he believes that he has been wronged. During the course of our marriage he told me about sickening revenge fantasies, and plans to cause physical harm to others who have wronged him. I fear for my family's safety, and I believe him to be highly capable and vengeful enough to take the children and disappear.”
