    Casefile Presents - In The Shadows

    Casefile Presents - In The Shadows

    In Bakersfield, California in 1991 two boys stumbled upon a grisly discovery; the murdered body of a young woman. In the Shadows is the new podcast from Wondery+ and Casefile Presents, which follows the ensuing thirty-two year ordeal to uncover those responsible for the crime and bring them to justice.

    The mystery riveted the desert-town for years. Police immediately zeroed-in on the victim's long-time boyfriend, a beloved star athlete. But popular opinion was divided. Despite national attention and several trials, a conviction remained elusive and many thought the case would never be solved. That is, until this podcast turned over a new leaf.

    During the investigation of In the Shadows, several individuals revealed shocking information previously unknown to authorities. Ultimately, this new insight turned everything on its head and will bring you one step closer to deciding who’s responsible for the murder.

    The first episode of In the Shadows is available wherever you get your podcasts. 
    You can listen to the rest of the series ad-free only on Wondery+ (https://wondery.com/shows/in-the-shadows). Join Wondery+ in the Wondery App or on Apple Podcasts and take advantage of their 7 day free trial.

    Case 235: House of Horrors (Part 1)

    Case 235: House of Horrors (Part 1)

    [Part 1 of 3]
    In early 1969, 15-year-old Rose Letts was waiting alone at a bus stop in the English town of Cheltenham when she was approached by a much older man.  27-year-old Fred West was poorly dressed, dirty, and had a mouthful of green, chipped teeth from years of neglect. While Rose found Fred repulsive, something about him excited her. 

    From this chance encounter, the pair initiated an intense relationship that culminated in their marriage three years later. Mr and Mrs West then settled into their ideal family home in the city of Gloucester - 25 Cromwell Street.

Waiting for that ‘weekly’ update….

What have I paid for?! No bonus episodes. Not even updates? What’s happened to Casefile?

Excellent content, delivery and production

Love the detail that goes into the research of these cases. Much more thorough and well-rounded even if you’ve heard the story before. Anonymous host has great delivery and keeps a good pace. Appreciate that the commercials have sound adjusted to match the show. Overall, it’s excellent!

Microchicckk ,

Too many ads

Way too many ads now, but I guess it’s a way to push people to pay. Lost a listener :(.
