    Episode 28: Lauren Smith-Fields

    Episode 28: Lauren Smith-Fields

    In honor of Lauren Smith-Fields birthday I wanted to discuss her story and what happened to her.
    On December 12th she was found unresponsive in her apartment and later pronounced dead. But the severe mishandling by police and the leniency given to the suspect in question leaves a lot of unanswered questions.

    On this episode I unpack what we know, the disparities in this case and what we can do to ensure Lauren Smith-Fields receives the Justice she and her family deserve.

    How does a 20 year old biochemistry major end up at the bottom of a lake with 66 pounds of rocks attached to him. And why was the Bloomington Police Department so quick to call it a suicide. This is the case of Joseph Smedley.

RitaNichole ,

Good podcast.

I am always looking for a new true crime podcast to listen to that I can really get into. It’s always a bonus if it’s one that represent my people. I recently found this podcast and the fact that I can continuously listen to it says a lot. The host is eloquent, clear and concise which I like. The ONLY thing I feel like I feel could use some changes is the traditions in the timelines when telling the cases. I noticed and perhaps this is in earlier cases she hold go from one thing to another thing to another thing that has happened but it be at different points and it’s not clear of the timeline. But other than that I am enjoying listening.
