Description

Culpable explores unsettled cases where the people who seem deserving of blame have somehow eluded justice. On February 26, 2014, Christian Andreacchio was found dead in the upstairs bathroom of his apartment from a single gunshot wound to the head. After a mere 45-minute investigation, local police ruled his death a suicide, despite substantial evidence that points to Christian’s death not only being a homicide, but premeditated murder. Host Dennis Cooper investigates and shares a compelling story about this suspicious death, the questions surrounding it, and a grieving family’s ongoing fight for justice.

I hate the fact that podcasts like this are needed, but I'm also grateful there are people willing and able to put in the investigative efforts to bring information to light. Thank you for your efforts.

Outstanding podcast! If nothing else, you have brought attention to a case that really needed it and hopefully this will lead to a change in Meridian. Please don't stop investigating this case and bring more to the worlds attention.

I have listened to this podcast since the first episode.. My heart breaks for Christians family.. I'm from Australia and seriously even from all the way from over here, it's clear a few guilty culprits need to be arrested and the police force need a good kick up the arse and a lot of them need to be on trial too. Kassie Colman is a narcissist inhumane pest why the hell you would have this woman as DA. How can you teach your future youth what's right from wrong when you have morons running the town . About time Christian and his family gets justice. Love to his family stay strong the WORLD is behind you ❤️

I find it interesting that the 911 operator asked Dylan if Christian said he was going to commit suicide and he immediately answered no. You’d think he would have said he threatened it that same exact day. The deleted texts from Christians iPhone that proved Whitley was using it at the time Dylan was supposedly communicating with Christian is also concerning.

man. the 911 call. I feel terrible that now the family is listening to it over and over. I found myself thinking which family are you going to contact? yours? his? who showed up and cleaned up? and the photos being released. 🤢 I did recognize that this episode chose not to really get into the language that was revealed in the text history now that it's a available. my take was that it was probably suicide fundamentally. they did have an extremely volatile relationship. everyone knew it. cover up? yep. tampered with crime scene. definitely. lies. yes 100%. at this point for me it seems like there was some collusion and effort financially including Christian. people don't just give their friends their bank account info without cause. but the cheating on Whitleys part sent the whole thing into raging turmoil mixed with the set up and him recognizing he was getting taken for a fool on so many levels , stir in the shit storm of general unhappiness in life, friends, family, and love and tbh, I think he pulled the trigger.... the lies stem from the truths that they meant to take advantage of him financially. any attorney would tell them that revealing the "gimme" as well as giving him back the gun makes them complicit in the death and CULPABLE! its arrest time.

Seriously heads have to roll over the handling of the case file release, this is the biggest stuff up/cover up. Someome at the top has to get the chop. It's so shocking how far they are willing to go to not prosecute the right people in order to not look incompetent. They should be ashamed.

Christian's family, specifically his mom, are some of the strongest people I've ever heard. I just hope they get the answers and closure they've fought so hard for.

Has anyone toyed with the idea or investigated the possibility of drug smuggling on Christian's boat? Possibly bad cops being a part of it and that's why they are resisting this investigation.

how can they show the one occasion a person commits suicide with no blood splatter. it's a known fact that it rarely happens like that. The video they showed to the grand jury should of never been allowed it has nothing to do with the case and was used solely to push the narrative of suicide and sway the jury. how was this even allowed ?

Michelle Hardesty I totally agree and on a side note many questions to be answered on how was someone allowed into an interrogation room with a loaded gun......

I feel like the old DA (Bilbo?) is somehow involved with covering all of this up, his kid is friends with alot of the people that have been questioned; and it would explain why the new DA doesn't want it opened back up. It would create a larger investigation into their whole department for years (maybe decades) prior. This poor family just wants the truth. His momma isn't letting it go. Christian deserves justice.

The issue at hand is that Meridian, Mississippi has a collective IQ of room temperature.
