    Introducing SUSPECT: Vanished in the Snow

    Introducing SUSPECT: Vanished in the Snow

    For more than three and a half decades, the disappearance of 12-year-old Jonelle Matthews was a mystery – a riddle neither authorities nor her family members could solve. The residents of her cloistered Colorado hometown had scoured every inch of prairie. Jonelle’s face had been on milk cartons nationwide. Even the President of the United States had appealed to the public for help. Still, every lead had fizzled. Every person of interest had turned out to be a dead end. 


    Then, in 2019, Jonelle’s remains were unearthed near the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. With the discovery came a troubling new question: Had the truth been hiding in plain sight the entire time? Was the man who couldn’t stop obsessing over Jonelle’s disappearance also the person who took her? From Campside Media and Wondery comes season two of SUSPECT. Former CNN reporter Ashley Fantz and executive producers Matthew Shaer and Eric Benson (Suspect, Over My Dead Body) dig into one of the most mind-bending cold cases in modern history, in an attempt to separate fact and fiction, compulsion from guilt, and true-crime fandom from a motive for murder.



    Hey Prime Members, you can binge all 6 episodes of SUSPECT: Vanished in the Snow ad-free on Amazon Music. Download the Amazon Music app today: Wondery.fm/Filmcast_Sus2

Love This Podcast!

Long time listener, first time reviewer. I'm totally not in the demographic for this show, but I love the camaraderie and reviews from these guys. They are insightful, funny, and thought-provoking in their review of movies and TV shows. I also learn about tons of new content from their "What We've Been Watching Segment". Dave's contrarian reviews, Devindra's love of quirky films, and Jeff's passon and limericks keep me so entertained. Thanks for putting together such an amazing show!!!

Firing on all cylinders lately!

Devindra has been on fire lately and seems to have fully settled into a good groove - and that's from someone who's not always on his wavelength, but have appreciated the progressive angle he brings to the show. Maybe the move to video has helped them gel even more?

This is how I wish my convos would go, talking movies with my friends. Also, the disagreements on the pod are a feature not a bug. Too many echo chambers out there! Been listening since #100, and here's to 1000 ✌️
