Chimayo Massacre: All or Nothing
For episode five, we conclude the Ricky Abeyta capital murder case tried by lifelong prosector Henry Valdez. After ten months of work and two months of trial, the jury delivers the verdict. Henry recalls his feelings hearing the verdict and the reaction from the community. We look back on the impact the case had on Henry and how he took the lessons he learned from the case and turned it into policy as District Attorney.
Finally, we offer an introspective reflection on the podcast and the true crime genre.

The True Crime genre is real life with creative storytelling. Our stories are journeys of struggle, triumph, and heartbreak. They are stories that are not with characters in black and white but in gray. It's noir, it's real, it's the Murder Inn.
There are real people behind the creative versions of the stories we tell. So, we must express that these stories are often the worst day in a person's life. We tell these stories with the utmost respect to the victims, their families, the communities, and the people associated with the case.
