When we face challenges in life, we seek answers from people we believe can help us. When tragedy strikes an exclusive retreat with a self-help superstar, many people are left to wonder: how far is too far? James Arthur Ray was an Oprah-endorsed self-help teacher who achieved fame, fortune, and influence. But friends and family members of his followers questioned his unorthodox methods, and tried to stop him. From Wondery, the makers of “Dirty John,” “Dr. Death,” and “The Shrink Next Door,” comes a story about the dark side of enlightenment. Hosted by journalist Matt Stroud.

this is one of my favourite mysteries of all time. it's so creepy man. something about it being set in peaceful japan makes it even creeper, too. the thought of an unknown person stalking around their house and slaughtering the whole family only to stay in the house for hours and then vanish into the night, never to be found out. insane!

A classic murder story, which is quite well known . I have a feeling that increasingly, Casefile is focusing more on unsolved crimes. They are interesting, but leave a sense of void after the show ends.

Great episode but I think that in the "Summary Section" there should be an actual summary of the episode and not just the first few lines of the script.

The ending was really anti climatic. Filled with false endings. Telling us that they found Xavier like three times just to then say: Oh never mind it wasn't him, we got the wrong guy Ooopsie! 😬. Extremely frustrating.

Please learn to pronounce the names of the people you're talking about before making a whole episode about them. It's pronounced dupon de ligone. In French you don't pronounce "T" at the end of words unless it's followed by a vowel, same thing with Ligonnes, you don't pronounce the "S" at the end. A quick check in Google translate would've sufficed. Otherwise this was a great case although the end left me unsatisfied since there's no closure.
