May 4, 2007. Belton, MO. Seventeen-year-old Kara Kopetsky walked out of her high school on May 4, 2007, and disappeared without a trace. From those early days, her mother, Rhonda, suspected Kara’s ex-boyfriend, Kylr Yust, was involved in her disappearance, but there was no way to prove it without physical evidence. So Rhonda waited for a crack in the case. On September 8, 2016, 21-year-old Jessica Runions was last seen leaving a party with Kylr Yust and disappeared afterward. Two missing women almost ten years apart with connections to a single man. Was it a coincidence? Or was Kylr Yust involved in two disappearances and possible murders?All caught up on Gen Why episodes? Get more here: www.patreon.com/generationwhyListen ad free with Wondery+.

Introducing the true crime podcast Badlands— a show that dives deep into the real stories of the famous at their most infamous.

Or the story of how Judy Garland’s lifelong addiction to pills sent her over the rainbow much too soon. And the story about how Winona Ryder was connected to a child kidnapping case in her hometown. These and many more.For all that and more, listen to Badlands.

January 5th, 1981. Owyhee County, Idaho. To some, Claude Dallas is an outlaw hero who was wrongfully imprisoned for defending his freedoms. To others, he’s a murderer who fatally shot two game wardens after they caught him breaking Idaho trapping laws. Claude had no regard for law and order, and hated law enforcement so much he was willing to kill to avoid arrest. Claude’s early life and years of illegal trapping without being caught contributed to his feelings of invincibility, until his final arrest in 1987.Generation Why has even more episodes.

February 5, 2002. Hudson, WI. Dan O’Connell, a funeral home owner, and his intern, James Ellison, are found shot to death in Dan’s office at O’Connell Family Funeral Home. Though the police had leads, none of them led to a viable suspect. Almost three years later, while investigating a separate case, detectives interviewed Father Ryan Erickson, a Catholic priest who was serving in Hudson in 2002. He revealed information only the killer and detectives knew about the double murder. As police investigated, Father Ryan hanged himself outside of his rectory and took any means of solving Dan and James’ deaths with him. This leaves the question, did a Catholic priest kill two men? And if he did, why?Get even more episodes from Generation Why at: patreon.com/generationwhyListen ad free with Wondery+. Join Wondery+ for exclusives, binges, early access, and ad free listening.

Glad they're covering this case, as there's something really fishy about the way this was investigated. The witness statements are a mess and once again, CCTV/camera's leave us with more questions, than answers.x

I love you two but come on! The cops could've asked the guest about Tamla smoking marijuana, then said, "Was anyone else smoking marijuana ?". They would reply no, if they did not smoke. It seems like you are trying to make this a black/white thing because it is in the south. That would be very presumptuous of me to think, which us exactly where you took the statements of the other people at the house. There is no mention thar they are being interviewed by police, whom ask TONS of questions. This episode is very slanted this week. Had to quit listening and I didn't want to quit. I am a loyal listener....also, zanax and alcohol can kill you. I am a recovering alcoholic, I fell constantly when I was less drunk than her. Ya'll needed to do more research on the effects of alcohol and Brazos. I got admitted to the hospital when I was drunk and alone one time. I had so many bruises, they actually admitted me because they were afraid I would die. Also, she could have gotten the injuries before she fell....right?
