On this week's Winter Distraction, Billy and Paul welcome the crew from the podcast Small Town Dicks. Billy, Paul, Yeardley Smith (Lisa Simpsons from The Simpsons) and Detectives Dan and Dave will discuss one of the biggest pop culture crime cases in the past year—the Jeffrey Epstein’s “suicide.” We delve into the background that first brought Epstein to the attention of law enforcement, the gross mishandling of his first criminal cases, those he was close to, his final days and the autopsy report. 
Jessi has been listening to The Murder Squad since episode 1, and followed Paul and Billy's instructions and submitted her DNA to GEDMatch after using an ancestry site. In June, detectives in Colorado contacted her, asking her to help put together a family tree. And last month, an arrest was made in an almost 40-year-old unsolved murder. In this week's Winter Distraction, Billy and Paul talk to the Squaderino who was instrumental in solving the first cold case by the Murder Squad community.
While Billy and Paul are working diligently on season two of Jensen and Holes: The Murder Squad, they're using their downtime to watch movies and TV shows about...crime. Some true crime, some fiction. In these mini-episodes, the guys give their thoughts on the crime shows and movies you love--and debate what they would've done differently if they were in the detectives shoes. Special guests from the podcast and entertainment world will drop in to share a drink and talk some crime. For our first Winter Distraction, Billy and Paul welcome investigative comedian Adam Conover from Adam Ruins Everything and the podcast Factually. Billy and Paul asks Adam to ruin true crime from fingerprints to DNA. 
In part two of the season one finale, Billy and Paul delve into the tips the Murder Squad has received this year. They interview Charles Manson’s acid dealer, who has never spoken to the police. But he came forward to the Squad with new information about the potential other murders The Manson Family could be responsible for in late 1960s Los Angeles. Also updates on our fugitive cases, the Olivia Lone Bear case, as well as convicted killer Jeffrey Willis.  Plus someone close to serial killer Jesse Matthew provides a detailed timeline of his whereabouts.  Stay tuned all winter for Murder Squad: Winter Distraction every Monday, where Billy and Paul will have very special guests to talk true crime cases and investigations. 
In the first part of the season finale, Billy and Paul talk to a woman who was friends with Yvonne Weber and Maureen Sterling--victims from the Santa Rosa Hitchhiker Murders. She was offered by them to smoke pot with a mystery man. She saw the man. Was never questioned by police and never told her story—-until now.  Also there will be updates on Alissa Turney's case, the I-5 Strangler, and theories on the unsolved murders of Abby and Libby from Delphi, Indiana.

I absolutely LOVE this! I often listen to podcasts at night when going to sleep as my husband snores. lol. I find myself going back a lot on this one because I never want to miss a second. if I happen to fall asleep and miss some, I just listen again. Their insights are very good. I love Paul Holes. To me, he makes the show.

Given the suspect's apparent urgency, use of a burner phone, and even his engagement with a sex worker. Is there any way to get any information from the airport surveillance within an hour or two of him leaving the complex?

And the actual detective who worked the case was named Shannon Jensen. Maybe do a dna search to see if you are related? LOL

I expect a little more diligence in vetting interviewees. The gentleman is clearly a fabulist who was making it up as he went. he could barely keep his story straight as to why he decided to come forward after a half century of silence.

Paul, please find a good therapist! it's sooo important to get all of this trauma out of your head! In your head, these thoughts have lots of power. getting them out and talking about it with someone who's not emotionally involved and someone you feel comfortable with is super important! May I suggest finding someone who practices CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) as the theory behind it is that thoughts affect feelings and feelings affect your behavior. If you can change the way you are thinking about a certain event to something less traumatic, it will help the way you feel about it, which will change the way you behave. It's amazing! it'll take time, so please don't expect a quick fix. I really believe you will benefit greatly from it. I sincerely hope you seek this out, but in the meantime, I suggest starting a journal. Like I stated earlier, getting your thoughts out- even if it's only on paper for now, will be very therapeutic. It'll also give your therapist a tool to use should you decide to share the journal with him/ her. I wish you the best of luck and hope you start feeling better very soon!
