    (Part 2/2) On November 17, 2015, Jennifer Rosenbaum called 911 stating her two year old foster child Laila Daniel had choked on a chicken nugget. During the call, she expressed concern that she was performing the Heimlich Maneuver and CPR incorrectly, fearing she might be inadvertently injuring the child. Once the toddler arrived at the ER, her body told a far different story than what Jennifer Rosenbaum had been claiming all along.

    Episode 1:  Felony Friday - Motherly Love
    In a case that captivated the entire nation, an 18-year old newly widowed Oklahoma mother’s home was invaded on New Years Eve in late 2011. Her husband had just tragically died from cancer on Christmas Day, and she was left alone with their 3 month old son. When the door finally burst and her attacker looked her in the eyes - it was at that moment that he knew, there is nothing more dangerous than a new mother looking over her newborn child.

    The Bloody Truth

    The Bloody Truth

    18-year-old Michelle Martinko was found brutally murdered in her family’s Buick Electra in the new Westdale Mall parking lot in December of 1979. When good old fashioned police work wasn’t enough to solve the case, it eventually went cold. Until 39 years later - when forensic sciences had sufficiently evolved and a newly assigned investigator brought a fresh perspective, and an innovative idea to the table.

    Obsession

    Obsession

    On September 2, 2015, 35 year old pediatric dentist Dr. Kendra Hatcher was tragically murdered in the parking garage of her luxury apartment building in Dallas, Texas. At first glance, police believed it to be a random act of violence or a robbery gone awry.  But Dr. Hatcher was scheduled to leave the very next day on a romantic vacation with her new boyfriend, Dr. Ricardo Paniagua.  As the truth slowly began to unravel, the details of a sinister plan fed by the greed, envy, and obsession of a former scorned lover were eventually revealed.

So glad to have found this!

I am really enjoying these thoroughly researched episodes. Very well done, respectfully presented. Host who obviously cares deeply about the stories he’s telling. Highly recommend!

The negative reviews are just plainly... inaccurate. All podcasts have ads, you’re listening to them for free, so... It kind of seems like the S&S host is jealous and leaving crap reviews.

Tlspsa ,

The music ... uch

Enjoy some of the stories and appreciate the use of audio... but the music, please stop. Inappropriate, unnecessary, and so very distracting! I can’t listen anymore. Unsubscribing.

Among The Many, Just One More

Trying to stand out certainly is commendable and understandable. However, despite any research or background work done, the author seems enamored of his own voice and it drones on, and on, and on, and on. I find it as a great sleeping aid. Most of the recorded material is unfortunately of very poor quality and difficult to understand in many instances and the one good thing the podcast has going for it is the hypnotic rhythm and the constant volume of the author’s voice
