    Kathleen Peterson: The Owl Attack? (Part 5)

    Kathleen Peterson: The Owl Attack? (Part 5)

    In the early hours of December 9th, 2001, a man named Michael Peterson made a panicked phone call to 911, telling them that his wife, 48 year old Kathleen Peterson, had fallen down the stairs and they should hurry because she was still breathing. Six minutes later he called back and reported that Kathleen was no longer breathing, she was gone. Initially, it appeared that this had been a tragic accident, but as first responders and law enforcement began to arrive at the scene, the tension was palpable. The Peterson family and friends felt that Michael was being unfairly targeted, that the police were only suspicious of him because he had been loudly outspoken and critical of the Durham North Carolina Police Department in his role as columnist for a local paper. The law enforcement professionals on the scene claimed that from the moment they walked in, it felt as if something wasn’t right, and there was far too much blood for the death of Kathleen Peterson to be attributed to a simple fall down the stairs.

    It was a hot Summer afternoon in July of 2012 when young cousins, Lyric Cook-Morrissey and Elizabeth Collins happily rode away from Eizabeth’s house in Evansdale, Iowa. No one could imagine that these two little girls would never return home, and even though their bicycles and belongings were found within hours of them being reported missing, it would take months to find their bodies and lay them to rest. Over the last decade, the loss of Elizabeth and Lyric has had ripple effects through their community, and the stress and pain of never knowing what happened caused a rift amongst their family members. And with the recent arrest of Riched Allen, the suspect in the Delphi murders case, law enforcement has been investigating a possible connection between Allens and what happened to Elizabeth and Lyric in Evansdale just five years prior. Both crimes took place in small Midwestern towns of just a few thousand people, Evansdale is only three hundred miles from Delphi. Both crimes involved the horrific murders of two young girls who were out together alone, and there has been discussion about how the dates of both disappearances are anagrams of each other, with Elizabeth and Lyric vanishing on 7-13-12, and Abby and Libby going missing on 2-13-17.

PL Angie ,

Great teamwork - cases are well researched & explained!

New Aussie fan here too 🇦🇺. I came across this podcast only recently and it’s become one of my true crime faves! I appreciate the amount of research Stephanie puts into each of these cases and how well the conversation flows with Derrick. I like how they don’t always agree and share their own insights based on the facts they have uncovered. At times they share their personal biases/ opinions but are very transparent as to why and offer listeners the chance to make up their own minds about certain findings. They remain respectful to the victims of crime and their families at all times and Derrick’s law enforcement background offers a well rounded perspective. They’re just an awesome pair to listen to! I don’t even skip the ads cause I like the sound of their voices lol

Carry_Maccah ,

One of the best!

This podcast will make you smarter if you let it! The hosts provide space for you to think more deeply about cases you thought you already knew and challenge each other in a way that is respectful and victim-focussed. You guys should be damn proud of your work… all the way from down under 😍

The Best True Crime Podcast I’ve Listened To

Truly my favourite true crime podcast. Incredibly detailed and well researched by Stephanie and some really interesting perspective from Derrick as a former law enforcement officer. You two make a great team to present these cases and I appreciate all the effort you both put in to bring us these stories, although tragic, so important for people to hear. I love the emphasis on the lessons to be learned. Keep up the great work!
I’ll be listening from Australia every week.
