Currently listening to the Patty Prewitt episode (#160) and it is so clear that this podcast is copaganda disguised as “unraveling intricacies.”

The host didn’t bother to mention the following facts: the house was broken into while her daughter was home (she hid under the bed) before the murder and the intruder went right into the closet where the gun was kept; Patty was tested for gunshot reside and the test found none; Patty was interviewed as a suspect multiple times and was not read her Miranda rights until she was arrested; cops interviewed her for 17 hours straight in her final interview but only recorded 15 minutes of it and never provided her or her legal team with a copy of what was said, so eventual testimony was just based on the cop’s memory; Patty was offered a plea deal in which she would have been eligible for parole after 6 years; Patty’s neighbor came forward and said that she had seen an unfamiliar truck and man in the neighborhood near the time of the murder and this information was never provided to the defense; the prosecution claimed that Patty had affairs with hundreds of men, but only 3 testified and 2 of them received deals in their own criminal cases; and during deliberation, the jury was hung and a bailiff informed them that the judge had said if they did not come to a conclusion, they’d just have to try harder next time.

Additionally, the host SEVERELY underrepresented the cops’ culpability regarding the lack of evidence collected (“a detective said he didn’t see any hairs” doesn’t mean there weren’t any). When speaking about how he wanted blood spatter analysis on Patty’s pajamas, he failed to mention that blood spatter analysis is junk science and has led to MULTIPLE wrongful convictions. Not to mention that multiple well-respected leaders have acknowledged the wrongdoings in the case and advocated for Patty’s release, including the former director of the Missouri Department of Corrections and former President Jimmy Carter. The case has also been taken on by the Midwest Innocence Project, which is not done without reason.

And Patty couldn’t identify the killer’s SMELL? Really? The host is so obviously biased, to the point where he sounds delusional. If you’re going make a podcast about something, you should probably consider actually knowing what you’re talking about beforehand.
