Description

Welcome signs proclaim it “America’s Most Beautiful Small Town.” It’s considered the Bourbon Capital of the World. And in many ways, Bardstown, Kentucky is just like a lot of small, tight-knit communities all across the country. But just under the surface, there’s something darker. Not everyone wants to talk about it. And a lot of people would rather forget. That’s because since 2013, Bardstown has also been the site of five unsolved murders. Now, the team behind “Bomber,” “True Crime Chronicles,” and “88 Days” is digging into these cases to find out what’s really happening in Bardstown, and whether these murders could be related. And along the way uncovering a history of violence and fear in this otherwise quintessential southern town. Bardstown launches August 28.

I want to APPLAUD law enforcement in Bardstown. KY for holding to the vows they have taken to protect and serve in this episode. They demonstrably put the heat on Nick Houk, and outed him as not one of their own ilk. It shows us, the public, honesty and integrity, which is the way lots of law enforcement operates, but the public unfortunately highlights the examples of corruption and dishonesty that happens only occasionally. Let's give some attention and credit to Bardstown for upholding the law with Dignity.

A very interesting and well done podcast. But the narrator said to go to their webpage for additional stuff. I did, and unless I missed the obvious, there is nothing there but links to each episode.

I heard about Bardstown Kentucky on another true crime podcast called Unresolved. I'm enjoying the podcast so far.

maybe trivial info to the whole investigation. did officer Ellis bring his k9 dog home with him? if so, is it coincidental that he had a different vehicle and no dog.

Jeff Brillowski Well i thought the shotgun was sloppy at first to until a friend who was a police officer told me that its common knowledge to trained personel that you cant trace shotgun rounds unlike other bullets. So that leads me to believe it could be someone trained well. But there is no telling it could have been anyone, but they obviously knew him decently well to know the right place and time like that. But yes i have talked to Jason before and seen him on many occasions, he was a very nice man and a very good cop. It was terrible because he honestly was one of the good ones. He seemed to honestly care about the people and conmunity. And as dedicated as he was to being an officer and writing tickets and such ive heard many stories of him letting people go with just warnings and cutting people a break on occasions. He even pulled a friend and I out of a ditch once with his personal truck.

Miles Cecil I would certainly follow that lead to the end. imo opinion based on what I heard a professional hit would have been cleaner and not with shotgun/s. to me stinks of staged and local. anything from officer Ellis notes or case files. officers on the take being that it's a known drug influenced town. story paints officer Ellis as a pretty good person, is this known to be true?

Clearly homeboy has no idea what's going on with the case or he's hiding something. The amount of times he said "good people" was annoying and suspicious.
