    Danielle Redlick: Romeo and Juliet? (Part 1)

    Danielle Redlick: Romeo and Juliet? (Part 1)

    The statistics tell us that intimate partner homicide is far more common than any of us would like to believe, with nearly one out of five murder victims being killed by a person they were in a romantic relationship with. It’s hard to understand how love and passion can turn to hate and violence, but if you look at the studies, it seems the most common motive is jealousy. But when the woman in the relationship is the attacker, and the man is the victim, and there is a history of domestic violence between them, we have to examine the details a bit more closely, because for society as a whole, it’s hard to determine what is right, what is wrong, and what is a moral gray area. In January of 2019, after allegedly dealing with years of physical abuse and emotional neglect, 46 year old Danielle Redlick stabbed her husband of over a decade. It would be eleven hours before she would call 911 to report his death, at which time she claimed 65 year old Michael Redlick had died from a heart attack after stabbing himself. During a police investigation, law enforcement discovered that the true situation was not as straightforward as Danielle had made it seem, and she was soon under arrest for murder, but during her trial all of the details came out, painting a complicated picture of a relationship that had maybe always been far from perfect.

    Brittanee Drexel: Monster Among Us (Part 3)

    Brittanee Drexel: Monster Among Us (Part 3)

    Brittanee Drexel was a seventeen year old girl who loved to have fun, and so when she was offered the opportunity to leave behind the wet and gray Spring weather of her Upstate New York hometown and escape to the sandy beaches and sunshine of South Carolina with her friends, it was no wonder that she took it. But she had done so without the permission of her parents, who were concerned that if Brittanee traveled to a different state without adult supervision, she might encounter danger, or get into trouble. But, the lively teenager had already made up her mind, and she was committed to spending Spring Break away from the stress and worries of her life, which is why she climbed into a car on the evening of April 22nd, 2009, leaving it all in the rearview mirror and driving towards the promise of fun and sun, not knowing that something far darker awaited her down south, because Brittanee Drexel was in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for just sixty hours before she vanished off a busy road, never to be seen alive again. And what followed would be over a decade of fear, sadness, confusion and frustration from her family and community, before a recent break in the case revealed what had happened to the energetic teenager who had just been looking for a few days of fun.

    Aaron Hernandez: A Tragic End (Part 5)

    Aaron Hernandez: A Tragic End (Part 5)

    Fifteen year old Matthew Kent was out for a jog on the evening of June 17th, 2013 when he discovered something that would change the course of multiple lives. Kent had just finished working out at the gym, and he was training for his high school track team, so he decided to run the short distance back to his home in Westwood Estates in North Attleboro, Massachusetts. His route brought him through a secluded clearing in an industrial park around 5PM where he saw a man, lying on his back, not moving. Kent approached the man to ask if he was alright, and when he received no response, he called the police. The body was that of 27 year old Odin Lloyd, a semi professional football player and a linebacker for the Boston Bandits, a family man whose two loves in life were his family and football, but for some unexplainable reason he had been shot to death, execution style. Odin was not from North Attleboro, and it wasn’t the kind of place where random acts of violence occurred, but law enforcement quickly discovered that he only knew two people in the area. Shayanna Jenkins, the sister of Lloyd’s girlfriend, and Aaron Hernandez, Shayanna’s boyfriend and tight end for the New England Patriots. No one wanted to believe that a young and talented professional football player who had just signed a 40 million dollar contract could possibly be involved with this brutal murder, but as the investigation progressed, a pandoras box was opened, revealing that there was another, darker side to Aaron Hernandez.

My favourite true crime podcast

I listen to a lot of true crime but this one is my favourite. The dynamic between Derrick and Stephanie is captivating, the cases are talked about in great depth and detail, and they have a way of making every episode so interesting. Super underrated podcast but if you love true crime, give it a listen!

Blaze Bernstein case

Really like the show.
However, please stop talking about what police need and are supposed to do. Unless you wear the badge and know the legal intricacies, it simply sounds pompous. It is easy to arm chair quarterback.
