Famed cold-case investigator and forensic analyst Paul Holes brings us two murder cases from Northern California that remain unsolved. These murders are eerily similar to three others that were committed by serial killer Phil Hughes. But with scant physical evidence, and Hughes remaining tight-lipped, Paul is forced to dig deep and come up with new ways to identify the killer and get justice for the victims.The detective: Paul Holes spent the majority of his 27-year career investigating cold cases and serial-predator crimes in the Bay Area of California. Just before he retired in April 2018, Paul led the team that broke the Golden State Killer case, which brought him worldwide acclaim. Other notable cases he’s worked on include The Zodiac, Laci Peterson, Jaycee Dugard, Darryl Kemp, Joseph Naso, and Joseph Cordova Jr. He's co-authored several books with former FBI profiler Jim Clemente, including “Evil Has a Name,” “A Devil in the Valley,” and “The Riddle of Emmon Bodfish,” all available on Audible. You can hear Paul on his own true-crime podcast, which he co-hosts with investigative journalist, Billy Jensen, called “The Murder Squad.” And Paul's memoir about his career entitled “Unmasked: My Life Solving America’s Cold Cases” is scheduled for release in April 2022.

Justice for the victim. It's a good example of how even family, when you work together; will step on you and climb over you, to get to the top.

I was a child of God... I was trying to talk to her about being saved and her face had changed. It was evil. Everytime she would look at me in my eyes I got this evil presence over me, I was really starting to get scared. It felt like she was there to kill me. 🎻

It's a funny contrast. But unlike her Simpsons character Lisa Simpson, who is known for being super smart!! Yardley Smith is as dumb as the day is long!! she repeatedly asked the stupidest, most obvious questions to things just about anyone would know the answer too. However the show is great! cases are interesting and compelling.

His interpretation of the conflict in the north of Ireland is so one sided that it needs to be addressed. the police were not killed just because they were policemen it a lot more complex than that. the politics of this conflict is their for anyone to see.to a large part of of the community here the police were seen as the problem they conspired with loyalist murder gangs to murder innocent Catholics.please don't take my word for it check it out yourself and you will have a more balanced opinion on the conflict here.and bear in mind the police force he was part of were disbanded cause the Catholic population of the north would not support them in anyway
