Description

Now in its second season, Hell And Gone is a podcast from iHeartRadio and School of Humans that follows writer and private investigator Catherine Townsend as she investigates unsolved deaths in small-town Arkansas. This season, she dives into the mysterious death of Janie Ward, a 16-year-old high school student who died at a party in 1989 in Marshall, Arkansas. In the 30 years since her death, no one has been able to determine how she died even though there have been multiple investigations and her body has been autopsied three times. Season 1 investigated the cold-case murder of Rebekah Gould, a beautiful and popular college student who was killed in 2004.

Even though I know the title I always think she's saying Helen gone for just a moment... Everytime. Lol

It's a fact that she was murdered by someone at the party so doing a 3rd autopsy is a moot point.

Please change that "music" please. Like Julia H said. It is banging and clanging and you can't heard what people are saying. The story is pretty good if you just can hear it. Many of the people they interview are not coming in clearly

I tried listening to this and I have to say, it's awful. Stop trying to force a full story when this is at best a two episode story.

Maybe it's just me but the update on Rebecca's case confuses me. I d finished season 1 quite under the impression Chris probably played I an active part in what happened so I was confused to hear they thought otherwise now

i think we may have a case of law inforcement not wanting to admit they could have been wrong. they need to swallow their pride and keep an open mind.

they keep playing intro/outro music over full minutes of speaking segments. This music is designed to tune a listener in or lead them out, so when it's played over the whole thing we never feel like we got into anything, we feel like we were given a trailer with missing info. Please, please, this podcast has so much potential but please research the use of background music on other true crime stuff. Right now this is hard to listen to.

I wonder if there is any relationship between Casey and the Lead Invesigator Dennis. If he was that quick to clear him it really seems like they might be related.

Really wish you'd stop weaving Rebecca's case in with this one. It is so distracting and annoying.
