    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.

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.

😂

Host is awful, doesn’t respect the families of victims and makes a lot of sexist comments about killing woman online, case file or Men’s rea, or my favourite murder is much better

SDQC79 ,

Badly deteriorated

Used to love this show, but ego driven host now ruins it with political and moral drivel through out. If you like true crime without the whining I recommend “Casefile”.

Hugofay ,

Very bingable!

I love the “real” recordings, giving background information on cases I’d never heard of. Well researched and presented 👍
