I'm Ava Jenkins and while researching death row, I discovered the case of Samuel Alexander Patterson – Virginia's youngest death row inmate.

All the evidence points to him, but when asked to defend himself...he said nothing. With just 12 months until his execution date, I'm on a journey to find out the truth, before it's too late.

The silent truth

I have the Unrd app and absolutely love these stories! Very realistic and gripping!

Waffles on

This is a podcast for a fictional game called unrd. The game is OK but the podcast waffles on and could be condensed into one episode. The convos are repeated in the game anyway and the case into is all in the article contained in the game. Waste of time and dull
