True Stories by NYPD Detectives. Break in the Case is a true crime podcast written and produced by the New York City Police Department. Listen as we follow “the world’s greatest detectives” to three crime scenes—some you may know, some you don’t. In the woods of Upper Manhattan, a grisly discovery in a cooler leads detectives down a twisting path, as they attempt to solve a gut-wrenching mystery spanning decades. In South Brooklyn, police find severed limbs and a torso strewn across a rocky beach, with little to identify them. At the peak of the crack epidemic, an NYPD raid on a Bronx apartment leads to six cops shot, a suspect on the run, hostages taken, and a feverish media circus. In conjunction with the New York City Police Foundation, Break in the Case provides an extraordinary inside look at NYPD investigations and the men and women who conduct them.

GREAT EXPLANATION

I am retired NYPD Squad Commander. I am proud how the case kept moving forward despite transfers, retirements and personnel changes.
The one question I have is the tip that broke the case was described by one of the narrators as “not accurate.” If it wasn’t true how did the get to the right place?
