Big news friends! We're moving to YOUTUBE! This is the final podcast, but I'd love to see you (and you can see me!) on the YouTube/True Crime Recaps channel twice a week for new mini-episodes. Why this move away from podcasts? Well...couple reasons...I'm more charming "in person," and it's easier to talk to YOU through the comments. If you like something, hate something...I want to be able to talk with you about it, and we can do that there. I hope you'll join me, it's a fun party! Meanwhile, take a listen to this last show about the SOLVED rape & murder of Mandy Stavik, a college freshmen from Washington state. And you won't believe how it got solved. Hint: You'll want to keep a close eye on your creepy co-workers. Enjoy!
A Dallas jury found former police officer, Amber Guyer, guilty for the murder of Botham Jean when she fatally shot him in what became known as the wrong apartment case. But was it actually murder or just a tragic mistake?This is a tragic true crime story with an ending that we can all learn from. // If you like your true crime delivered with real talk (and a side of snark!) then this is the true crime show for you...just like you're having a conversation about true crime with your most outrageous friend. // Do you prefer to watch true crime on YouTube?

This is the most bizarre story you'll hear today. Kristine Barnett, parenting expert and author, and her husband Michael Barnett were parents to Natalia Grace Barnett, their adopted Ukraine daughter who they thought was a child but who may actually be an adult with dwarfism. The Natalia Grace case is being called the real life Orphan. Now, in 2019, years after ditching their adopted daughter, the real life Orphan adoption story is getting even crazier now that charges have been filed. // Prefer watching your true crime stories?

SECRET BABY BURIAL in the backyard was not enough to convict Ohio ex-cheerleader, Brooke "Skylar" Richardson of murder! You're not going to believe this crazy case...or maybe you will.
