Description

On November 13, 2022, four students from the University of Idaho are brutally stabbed to death in an off-campus house. After a lengthy investigation and cross-country manhunt, a Ph.D. student from a neighboring university is charged with the crimes. As it turns out, the 28-year-old was majoring in criminology, studying the behavior of killers like the ones he would later be accused of becoming. Did he use his skills to become a real-life Dexter? Were the Idaho victims his first, or was a serial killer hiding in the midst? The producers of The Piketon Massacre explore all sides of the shocking crime in pursuit of the truth.

In the world of true crime, few stories are as chilling and perplexing as "The Idaho Massacre." This infamous event, which unfolded in the remote wilderness of Idaho, has captivated the imaginations of both amateur sleuths and seasoned investigators alike. To provide a comprehensive understanding of this dark chapter in American history, we must delve deep into the details. https://www.bark.com/en/us/company/tray-crafters/q3d4D/ "The Idaho Massacre" occurred in the early 1980s, a time marked by political and social turbulence. Against this backdrop, a group of individuals ventured into the rugged and desolate backcountry of Idaho, where they aimed to establish a self-sufficient and isolated community, often described as a cult. https://clutch.co/profile/tray-crafters#highlights

I'm struggling to see how it advances a defense to depict the Wagner family as dysfunctional criminals, especially since the accused remained within the family's ambit. Similarly, it would be good to know more about Ohio law on conspiracy in a criminal enterprise. In some jurisdictions, the accused could be convicted for involvement in murdering eight people without establishing beyond a reasonable doubt that he fired a single shot.

absolutely a huge waste of time! 2 minutes of "intro" and commercials, then 10 minutes of gossip and speculation, then another 3 minutes of commercials. nothing of substance, just people trying to make ad $ fooling you into thinking it's a deep dive true crime podcast and real facts and info are just around the corner after this "quick" 3 minute commercial break.
