112: The Horrific Murder of Jessica Currin

Update: 2021-01-2512


On August 1, 2000, the body of a young black woman was found behind a middle school in Mayfield, Kentucky. The new mother, 18 year old Jessica Currin, was found partially clothed, badly burned and already decomposing. The incompetence of local police doomed the case from the beginning. The Kentucky State police and then the KBI eventually took over the investigation. But it took a local homemaker, an amateur sleuth named Susan Galbreath, to finally make a break in the case.

Another good case but the hatred this host has for white people is astonishing. The killer was black and she still brings race to the table. Hello Erica you're white. Your voice is great for storytelling but leave the politics out. We get enough of that on TV which is why most listen to these type of podcasts.
