    When a small team of government investigators learns that ordinary citizens all around the U.S. are losing their life savings to scam callers, they go on the hunt for the shadowy multinational mob behind the con, unraveling a plot that stretches from suburban Texas to the outskirts of Singapore to a drab office complex in one of the largest cities in India.

    Introducing The Fall Line

    Introducing The Fall Line

    This is an excerpt from The Fall Line Podcast’s episode on the unsolved disappearance of Carlos Ariel Delgado Mancha.

    Carlos Delgado disappeared in 1997, but there’s no formal record of this fact—at least, not one his family can access. Although ICE allegedly holds that information in their internal records, there is no listing for Carlos, who was in the US on a temporary residency visa, with NamUs or any other state or county agency. And that has made tracking him, and publicizing his case, extraordinarily difficult. Add in the circumstances of Carlos’’ life, and his place among the “missing missing,” and his son Hugo and niece Sheila have had a hard road toward seeking help in publicizing his case.

    Justice For Katie Palmer Part 2

    Justice For Katie Palmer Part 2

    During the course of John Palmer’s journey to see justice for his wife Katie, he’s gone up against the Grayson County District Attorney, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and even taken his fight to Texas State Congress. When House Bill 558 passed, it was a huge victory – not only for John but also for the family of Royce City’s Colten Carney, who was struck and killed by a pickup truck as he walked to work in 2017. Even though his other battles are yet to be won, John Palmer isn’t stopping anytime soon, especially not before he gets #JusticeForKatiePalmer.

    Justice For Katie Palmer Part 1

    Justice For Katie Palmer Part 1

    On an April 2020 morning in a country neighborhood of Denison, Texas, Katie and John Palmer set out for a walk and to hopefully spot some killdeer birds nesting down the street. When they headed back home on Glenwood Drive, walking on the left side of the road where they would face traffic should there be any, the couple was struck from behind without warning. John Palmer survived his injuries, but his wife Katie was pronounced dead at a Plano Hospital trauma center many hours later. There was much to be desired concerning the Texas Department of Public Safety’s “investigation” at the scene. Months later, a grand jury declined to indict the man who hit Katie and John Palmer, killing her. But a trooper at the scene recommended the man’s arrest and charges in his report, citing criminal negligence. To this day, John Palmer continues to fight for justice for Katie. Part 1 of 2.

    Special thanks to John Palmer for his invaluable contributions to this episode.

    The Murder of Trellis “Tree” Sykes in Sunnyside

    The Murder of Trellis “Tree” Sykes in Sunnyside

    Sunnyside, Houston, Texas was once a community of hope and prosperity. But by the 1990s, the community was riddled with dilapidated buildings and infrastructure, poverty, and crime. Track champion, basketball all-star, and honor student Trellis “Tree” Sykes was a light in the community. Everyone in Sunnyside was proud to have her as a local. In 1994, however, someone who can only be described as a monster accosted Tree and violently ended her incredibly special and promising life. Years later, when a neighborhood rapist was identified after the city of Houston finally prioritized ending their backlog of rape kits, the cops were sure the man was responsible for Tree’s slaying. Though the case remains unsolved to this day, Houston Homicide Division Cold Case Detective Darcus Shorten recently reopened the case.

    If you have any information about the murder of Trellis Tree Sykes, please contact the Houston Police Department Homicide Division’s Cold Case Squad at (713)308-3618

Loving this podcast

Definitely one of the best podcasts out there. I’ve listened to every episode and can’t wait for more. Well done, listening from Scotland, UK

jonnyrockstuff ,

Too many others telling the podcast

History and geography lesson for the first 10 minutes…also There is a robot voice every so often and Podcaster relies on too many family and friends on some cases telling the story. It’s a cop-out and frequently it’s over the phone and the line is bad…not great.

Dbroon ,

Brilliant!

One of the best True crime podcasts I’ve found , look forward to every episode , keep up the great work
