Culpable explores unsettled cases where the people who seem deserving of blame have somehow eluded justice. On February 26, 2014, Christian Andreacchio was found dead in the upstairs bathroom of his apartment from a single gunshot wound to the head. After a mere 45-minute investigation, local police ruled his death a suicide, despite substantial evidence that points to Christian’s death not only being a homicide, but premeditated murder. Host Dennis Cooper investigates and shares a compelling story about this suspicious death, the questions surrounding it, and a grieving family’s ongoing fight for justice.

Amazing podcast. 10/10!

I’ve just gotten into listening to podcasts again. My friend told me about this one, as I am from Hattiesburg, MS. I started listening last night, and I can’t stop binging it and am only on the 6th episode. Truly thorough information and very admirable mother to stand up to find the answer for her child. Such a sad event, but amazing work creating this podcast.

I don’t want to binge, but I can’t stop listening.

I listen to podcasts while commuting to and from work two hours a day. I first heard about Christian’s case on an old episode of dateline. I adore his mom and her determination. The literal definition of a Mama Bear. Praying so hard for justice and a little bit of peace for this poor family.

Interesting story

I enjoyed listening to this podcast with all its twists and turns. The deception was unbelievable! From the police, especially bothered me, but even from Christian’s supposed friends. I have great empathy for Christian‘s mom and family. I had a brother that we lost to drowning when he was 17. It was tragic but not violent. The loss of a child is heartbreaking. Great job in telling this family’s saga with compassion. I was impressed with your thorough search for the truth and the reward your company put out. I pray that the truth comes out! Please continue with updates as they become available. Thanks!
