It was a January afternoon in 1981 when a man’s German Shepherd came upon a grisly discovery in the woods outside of Houston: the badly decomposed remains of a young man, beaten to death, and a woman, who was strangled. For 40 years, the victims were nameless – until late 2021, when a team of genetic genealogists identified the pair as 21-year-old Harold Dean Clouse and 17-year-old Tina Gail Clouse, a married couple who had moved from Florida to Texas with their infant daughter. But the discovery of the identities only deepened the mystery: who killed the couple and why? And where is their daughter, Holly, who would be 42 years old if alive today? 

In this multi-part true crime podcast, host Cristina Corbin travels across the country to interview law enforcement and family members, uncover new leads and speak exclusively with a religious cult at the center of this double murder mystery. The first reporter to obtain the entire police case file, including autopsy reports and crime scene photos, Corbin exposes stunning details that move this decades-old case forward.

Fantastic podcast

I’m so glad that you decided to take up this story and find the truth of what happened. It’s heartbreaking to see two young lives taken and their daughter never knowing her parents. I’m so happy that Holly was found and has had the opportunity to know her grandparents and family members. I binged as you had my attention from the very beginning, you have a beautiful way of telling it, keep up the great work.

Podcasts again proving to be investigative

Another of those great podcasts where the investigative journalist has helped to be part of bringing forward evidence and witnesses. I hadn’t read the synopsis prior to listening and so I was left with quite a few “mouth open in shock” moments as the story unfolded. Unlike many other crime podcasts, it’s concise, without too much padding - this was refreshing (so many podcast are too drawn out) What a facinating story, but still with many unanswered questions.
