SEASON OF JUSTICE!!!

SEASON OF JUSTICE!!!

2021-07-1546:3610

Audiochuck’s founder and CEO, Ashley Flowers, has founded a new non-profit called Season of Justice. Season of Justice (SOJ) is dedicated to providing funding to law enforcement agencies and families to help solve cold cases. SOJ provides grants to law enforcement for advanced DNA analysis solutions, such as forensic genealogy and next-generation sequencing. The organization also awards grants to families to support awareness campaigns, search teams and other initiatives that can assist in pushing their cold cases forward. SOJ’s goal is to provide financial resources for both law enforcement and families in order to bring closure to those impacted by unsolved violent crimes. Though Season of Justice is completely separate from audiochuck, it’s because of Crime Junkie listeners that we have been able to fund the organization so far. Every time you’ve ordered merch, signed up for the fan club or just listened to one of our ads on Crime Junkie we have donated to SOJ. Because of you we have already been able to award $145,000 in grants to assist with 25 cold cases. And that’s JUST the beginning. We expect to award another $75,000 to $100,000 through the rest of this year and hopefully much more in the years to come. At audiochuck, we believe we have a responsibility to do more than just tell these stories. We believe you as listeners have a responsibility to do more than just listen. We really wanted to be able to move the needle in the true crime space and create responsible true crime content and we are doing that together. Because of you and because of this show, we will all be directly responsible for making a difference. For making sure justice is served. For doing right by the people whose stories we tell. Whether you’ve been here since day one or you just found our show – THANK YOU. Thank you for being a part of this journey. And thank you for helping us making a lasting responsible impact in the true crime space. Audiochuck will always continue to use the funds brought in by our fans to support Season of Justice and other non-profits and cases that are important to us and our listeners, but if you want to donate directly you can visit the website Seasonofjustice.org. Season of Justice is a 501(c)(3) and all donations are tax-deductible.  Law enforcement, victims and families can also submit grant applications on the website for funding. One day we hope to wake up and say there are no more cold cases… That won’t be tomorrow, but there is a future where that’s possible. And thank you for making that happen.

Off topic, but can I just say, as an Aussie, hearing Brit say,"Macca's" during the ad break is legendary. haha

DNA testing is incredibly expensive. that's why if the state is 100% sure they're definitely not going to test it. I do agree that it should be tested.

I think she could be innocent. At least there is not enough evidence to prove her guilt.

I thought they said the blood was dry and when the police chief threw him over his shoulder he didn't get blood on his shirt? but if Tommy shot himself right before calling wouldn't there have been blood everywhere?

In my opinion, I believe she died by suicide. It seems like she kept trying to end her life. What are the chances of getting into multiple cat accidents in that short of a time frame? And each accident was a single vehicle accident? I think that she purposely crashed her car, but didn't die, then tried to die by carbon monoxide poisoning by stuffing a rag into her tail pipe. She may have been in the process of that act when Butch pulled up. Realizing that he would likely call the police, she left on foot, and sadly died in the woods some place. I think the excess of alcohol can be explained by her depression and bulimia. Her father also must know the likelihood of her self harm to even suggest that she may have tried to hurt herself. I know he regrets saying that, but I don't believe you would make a comment about self harm unless you had a reason to believe that she was capable of self harm. This is sad, but I don't think it's much of a mystery.

Ashley & Brit you both are amazing and I truly stan with you as allies for the LGBTQ+ communities. supporting others regardless of their sexual preference or gender identity is not a political belief its a moral stance. It's obvious to me some of these other commentators are morally empty buckets.

I know that everyone has different apps and I am no one to say what platforms you should use but I wonder if there will be a time when this comes up on Spotify.
