Description

On a winter morning in 1982, two young fathers were found shot to death in a van parked outside an upscale Utah restaurant. The killer soon confessed, but his story about what happened - and why he chose violence - would create more pain, conflict, and questions for the families left in the wake of the murders.

As the families of the men struggle to rebuild their lives, they face questions they never anticipated. Does everyone deserve a second chance? Who is forgiveness for? And if you can inherit trauma, can you also inherit forgiveness? Through their stories, we discover even the most personal decisions can unintentionally ripple through lives, through generations, even impacting the lives of people we’ve never met. From KSL Podcasts (Cold), Lemonada Media (Blind Plea) and WorkHouse Media.

Every Parent's Nightmare

2022-09-0640:3538

On Zach Snarr’s last day alive, he got up early to help his father at work, he cleaned the kitchen for his mother and he made his sister laugh. But on August 28, 1996, the 18-year-old never came home from his date with Yvette Rodier at a reservoir outside of Salt Lake City. Instead, two police officers and a chaplain came to ring the bell. It was every parent’s nightmare, a devastating loss that rocked a community and shattered lives. But Zach’s mother, Sy Snarr, finds hope from a most unlikely place and it comes in the form of a weekly phone call. Get more information and photos on our website, theletterpodcast.com.

When Jorge Benvenuto sat down to write a letter to the family of the boy he’d shot to death as a teenager, he had no idea the chain of events that would follow. When he penned his apology alone in a prison cell, he never imagined that it would lead to him hugging the mother of that young man. Nor did he have any inkling about the many ways the letter would reverberate through his own life - and the lives of his family members. The Letter opened a pathway for the parents of Zachary Snarr to push for his release. The Letter team will follow and update with new episodes as developments happen.Get more information and photos on our website, theletterpodcast.com.

Grief is often misunderstood, even by those experiencing it. Why do we think grief is something that will end or something that can be left in the past? Is closure a myth? And why does guilt often play a role in grieving? And how can our own fear cause even more pain and isolation for those we care about most? The Letter host Amy Donaldson discusses these questions with grief therapist Claire Bidwell Smith (New Day) in a wide-ranging discussion about one of society’s most misunderstood topics. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
The Letter host Amy Donaldson works closely with Dave Cawley, the host of the COLD podcast. Amy has listened to every episode of COLD and calls herself not only a co-worker, but a fan of Dave’s investigative and thoughtful approach to true crime journalism. Here’s a little more about Season 3: The Search For Sheree.  When Sheree Warren left her job in Salt Lake City in 1985 she told a coworker she was headed to meet her estranged husband at a car dealership. But she never made it. Sheree vanished. Police turned suspicious eyes towards her husband. And although there was distrust around Charles Warren, he wasn’t the only suspect. She also had a boyfriend, a former cop named Cary Hartmann, who lived a sinister double life.  Season three follows two suspects– men who both raised suspicion for investigators. But with two strong persons of interest with competing facts and evidence, it muddied the murder investigation. This season, host Dave Cawley, digs into the lives of these two men, the details of the case and examines the intersections between domestic abuse and sexual violence. The COLD team seeks to answer the question: what really happened to Sheree Warren? Hey Prime Members, you can binge all 10 episodes of COLD: The Search for Sheree ad-free on Amazon Music.

The impact of the Snarr family’s decision to forgive their son’s killer continues to reverberate. Since The Letter published, Sy Snarr says she’s blown away by the responses of strangers. We talk to Sy’s grandsons about the generational impacts still rippling through the family. As for Yvette Rodier, she declines an interview, but sends an email.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Two fathers are found murdered in a van parked outside an upscale Utah restaurant in 1982. The killer confessed, but his violent choice left five children to grow up with ghosts and grief. The families were forced to wrestle with impossible questions: Who is forgiveness for? Does everyone deserve a second chance? And what if a personal decision can ripple through generations, even reaching strangers? Season 2 of The Letter: Ripple Effect premieres on April 16th.

This story was so sad for all that were involved. My heart aches for all three teenagers. 19 will always be a lost soul age, I think anyone that has been 19 could agree with this. SPOILER I think the most important thing that should have happened is that the guy who bought Jorge the gun should have been the responsible adult in his life and as soon as he considered shooting someone to know what it feels like he should have took the gun away.

He is from Uruguay, he is white!! it's ridiculous to say he is a brown skin kid and make this about race. This guy obviously knows nothing about Uruguay. Just because he is from South of the boarder does not make him brown.

Mental Health is so stigmatized in our country, that we often forget that teens are navigating through life completely blind. When you add depression and a sense of chaos to that, the formula becomes explosive. Children spend 18 years of their lives asking to go to the bathroom. Then we send them out into the world and expect them to be module citizens. Not everything to them is black and white.I felt sorry for Jorge from the very beginning. The feeling of hate was like an old friend to him, and he released it in the worse possible way. I’m so glad this story had a happy ending and I hope this podcast opens doors to accessible mental health education for children/teens.
