    On March 6th, 2015, the body of 85-year-old Anthony Tomaselli was discovered two weeks after the death of his long-time partner. According to his adult daughters, Mary Beth and Linda, their family was relieved. His daughters claimed that Anthony’s health was in poor condition before his passing, and they could finally relax. Anthony’s official cause of death was a broken heart. Unfortunately, broken heart syndrome is extremely rare, and the Tomaselli family’s relief would become sorrow and regret after a mysterious man entered into the mix four years later.

    What would you do if you worked your whole life to achieve the American dream and then you perceived that someone was on the cusp of taking it all away? How far would you go and what would you be willing to do to stop them? On a beautiful summer morning in 2008, land surveyors arrived at the home of 36 Nicholas Avenue in Greenwich, Connecticut. Their job was to stake the property, but soon after they began working, the surveyors heard loud and desperate cries for help. The screaming led the surveyors to a backyard where they found a horrific and bloody scene.

    The town of Groton, Mass had never witnessed such a tragedy. A tragedy that would test the love and loyalty of one family. The bond between family can never be broken but the love and loyalty between can sometimes be tried so hard that it’s severed. Orion Krause learned this lesson all too well in the summer of 2017.

    Thanksgiving of 2012 started off very poorly for the Redwine Family. When one member of their clan, 13-year-old Dylan Redwine vanished on November 18th, an expensive and lengthy search of the Colorado Mountains ensued. What they found over the course of a decade exhausted investigatory resources and frustrated the community. By the time an arrest was made, everyone already knew who had taken Dylan.

Generally a good listen

I usually enjoy this podcast. The presenter has a good voice and manner. It is well written and a nice turn of phrase.

I think a lot of the one star reviews is the same person making various accounts. The language they use is too similar.

My main problem with this show is how recordings they use. Some episodes can be 50% poor quality audio of 911 calls or police interviews.

More than once the audio was such bad quality that I couldn’t understand the majority of the episode and had to turn it off.

Have listened to this podcast for years

But now can’t even access the free pods without having to go through leaps and bounds. Can’t even listen to the normal pod atm because it won’t work on my Apple?
