    The Murder Of Monika Zumsteg Telling - Part 3: Ruined Familes

    The Murder Of Monika Zumsteg Telling - Part 3: Ruined Familes

    In the Autumn of 1980, a young aristocratic Englishman, Michael Telling, was in Sausalito, a city in Marin County, California, across the Golden Gate Strait from San Francisco, USA. He was riding a special edition Harley Davidson motorcycle. A chance meeting with an American couple, Lou and Elsa Zumsteg, their daughter Erika and other friends, whilst out for a motorcycle ride, was to change their lives forever...
    Welcome to the final part of our #truecrime investigation into the murder of Monika Zumsteg Telling. In this third episode we discuss what happened after Monika’s headless body was discovered in a wooded area near Exeter Racecourse. We also talk about how Michael had tried to cover up the murder; which had happened five months earlier when Monika was shot and killed and how he had kept Monika’s body in the outdoor Sauna at Lambourne House. Followed by his arrest and subsequent trial in 1984.
    Violent crimes and murders. They can affect and leave deep scars on even the most strongest of families. So we again talk with Erika (Monika’s sister) and discuss how the Zumsteg family tried to cope with their loss and the deep pain it caused them over the years.
    If we can, we hope we have helped give Monika a voice during these three episodes and helped tell her sad side of the story to all of you.

Absolutely love this podcast

This is an intelligent, very interesting podcast in which the hosts forensically investigate the cases in great depth. Told in a calm and clear manner with John and Sally interacting well with each other to enhance our understanding of the cases. Being ex-police the hosts have the knowledge and experience to explain procedures both in the context of the day and what would happen nowadays. John and Sally travel to the locations for context and interview people connected to or have knowledge of the the case and also speak to experts who give information on various forensic or psychological aspects of the cases. Can’t wait to listen to their next cases. I have recommended this podcast to several people and am pleased to give them a well-deserved 5 star rating.

One of the most satisfying podcasts I’ve heard

The hosts relate so well to each other and the subject matter and have a great upbeat attitude and enthusiasm for the subject.
I enjoy learning about their professional view of investigation and the fascinating observations on human behaviour.
Listen to this podcasts for an enjoyable account of true crime free of irritating babble

Great pod

I host a podcast and in some respects would be in competition with this pod, as I try to be understated, not using too many adjectives or adverbs. I couldn’t compete with this podcast as clearly so much effort goes into each pod, five stars and very well done, I really enjoy these episodes.
