About a local murder that went unsolved for 30 years, the suspect turned out to be a bit of a serial killer. A lot of local bits and I know the detective that cracked it, so that‘s curious.

JenReadsAlot What case is this? 2w
peaknit This is the Drew/ Hack case, more generally about their killer, Ed Edwards. Chad Garcia was detective. 2w
JenReadsAlot I'll have to check that out! 1w
peaknit @JenReadsAlot It‘s pretty good. I also am listening to 88 days, it‘s about Jayme Closs‘s story. Wow. 1w
JenReadsAlot Oh thanks for that too. 1w

I‘m so far down the rabbit hole on podcasts. Another short series on true crime based on the recent cold case the Golden State Killer. It delves more into stories of victims and Joseph Deangelo. Horrifying. It shocked me how rape was investigated so differently just 30 years ago. But working in the periphery of law enforcement almost that long, it is so accurate. Finally, women are being listened to and police agencies are working together.

KaraWines What are some of your true crime favorites? I'm such a podcast nerd! 2mo
peaknit @KaraWines the obvious one is Serial, for me started it all(seasons 1 & 3), but Crimetown was good, also Smalltown Dicks. I liked In The Dark about Jacob Wetterling, excellent. Recently Dirty John, Dr. Death and Uncover and this one. Up next i want to try Culpable and I‘ve heard good things about Cold. Wow, a lot of listening!!:) send recommendations my way! 2mo
KaraWines @peaknit I enjoyed all of those. I also like Root of Evil, The Teachers Pet, Accused, Cold, and Case Closed. 2mo
