Description

On Buried Bones, journalist Kate Winkler Dawson and retired investigator Paul Holes dissect some of history’s most compelling true crime cases from centuries ago. Together, they explore these very old cases through a 21st century lens. With their years of expertise and knowledge of modern forensics, they reflect on how far science has come and bring new insight to old mysteries. 


Together, Kate and Paul have examined many cases including the 1932 Lindbergh baby kidnapping, the first time fingerprinting was used as evidence in a courtroom and a possible serial killer in 1960s Nashville. They ask, was the right person convicted or was someone wrongfully accused?


See pictures, diagrams and evidence from each case on Instagram @buriedbonespod.

Great podcast, great stories. Seems like inhalation of the termite treatment is conceivable. Termite tents used to look like circus and were inviting to children. Chlordane could be mixed with hydrocarbons. Uneven pupils and fatige could show seizures.

I know this sounds weird, but given that the two girls must have ingested the poison at the time they were swimming with four other children and the fact that they may have been cognitively impaired, it makes me wonder if one of the other children had given the two of them something to drink, thinking it was funny. They might not have realized how dangerous it would be and then been too afraid to admit to it. Kids can get up to some pretty mean stuff.

Horse Thief: We know now about the functions of different parts of the brain. And that there is a part that governs risk assessment & self- restraint. If that was the part of William's brain that was damaged, could that have explained his rageful actions even if part of his brain let him recognize his behavior was not--for our culture & in his time--socially acceptable?

This is terrible. The woman host is TSTL, she clearly has no expertise - or even enough basic curiosity to delve in - in history (she's well below average by any measure) and their analysis is weak at best. Cringeworthy.

I think they missed an obvious (and likely) possibility as to why the murders went unreported: In 1950's Georgia, communities of color had every reason to avoid interactions with law enforcement...

Host bemoans racism in arrest while presenting no evidence of racism. Ends up presenting lots of circumstantial evidence saying the black guy was involved, and she ends up saying he is responsible. BUT he is acquitted, so why was racism introduced at all? Just tell the story, if racism is a part of it, so so. If it is not, then don't politicize.

Trying to listen, the woman is laughing to much. But since another Susan likes it, I'll try again.
