True Stories by NYPD Detectives. Break in the Case is a true crime podcast written and produced by the New York City Police Department. Listen as we follow “the world’s greatest detectives” to different crime scenes—some you may know, some you don’t. In the woods of Upper Manhattan, a grisly discovery in a cooler leads detectives down a twisting path, as they attempt to solve a gut-wrenching mystery spanning decades. In South Brooklyn, police find severed limbs and a torso strewn across a rocky beach, with little to identify them. In conjunction with the New York City Police Foundation, Break in the Case provides an extraordinary inside look at NYPD investigations and the men and women who conduct them.
