Description

In 1977, wealthy widow Helen Brach, heiress to the Brach candy fortune, disappeared without a trace after a doctor’s appointment in Chicago. The investigation into who killed Helen Brach would lead police to her con man/boyfriend, her shady houseman and into the underground world of horse-killing hitmen who murder thoroughbreds for money.

Knowing this horrific story as well as I do, I agree that maybe you should add a trigger warning. Although, you really didn't touch on the worst of what happened to the horses at the hands of The Sandman, what happened to Streetwise (not mentioned in the podcast) was an example of sadistic brutality. The reason the power cord was used by him so often is because it was clean and quick and it could mimic a natural death unless someone noticed the marks from the clips. I do need to add, not all show horses are thoroughbreds. Many thoroughbreds who were bred to race either never make it to the track (for many reasons including they just were not fast enough) or are retired to do other things. Some of the fact checking and choice of terms/wording could have been more accurate to the equestrian industry. But someone not familiar with it probably won't even notice lol
