Description

Season 2: A soft-hearted prison minister was found killed in her Kentucky apartment, and Newport police zeroed in on an ex-convict she’d counseled. Thirty years later, the conviction is overturned and the case is once again unsolved. The Cincinnati Enquirer investigates: Was William Virgil wrongly convicted for murder?


Season 1: When Elizabeth Andes was found murdered in her Ohio apartment in 1978, police and prosecutors decided within hours it was an open-and-shut case. Two juries disagreed. The Cincinnati Enquirer investigates: Was the right guy charged, or did a killer walk free?

If you like podcasts that have girls crying about their nightmares they have from researching a case then this is the podcast for you. She also likes to talk about how exhausted she is and how much work she has to do. It’s a very interesting subject. They could have used a better host or wtvr that position is actually called. She seemed to know less than I do, which is to say she seems to know less than nothing, bc I know nothing .

This "expert" knows less about serial killers than the average armchair sleuth. It's painful to listen to him.

I don't think the maintenance man did it. I honestly think he was nervous and was talking himself into circles. I know my brain isn't all there and I forget this type of stuff all the time and I'm much younger than him lol!
