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 work

You have done such an amazing job bringing this issue to light. Not only have you managed to exploit the injustice that has taken place but you were able to connect the viewers with the family. Can’t wait for the next chapter and I will be looking into what I can do to assist in the effort to get Christian justice.

Riveting Heartbreaking,Intriguing

Fantastic Work. I pray justice is soon executed and truth is told for Christian and his family. Please do updates on his story.
I hope there’s another Culpable story soon

Lots of good investigative work, but Dennis Cooper is a poor choice to narrate

Dear God! Why choose Dennis Cooper? He is one of the worst narrators I’ve ever heard. It’s clear that so much work went into investigating and laying out this story, why ruin it with the dead-pan, lifeless, monotone, robotic narration by Dennis Cooper?! Dennis, if you really want to do podcasts, PLEASE get some training in broadcasting and voice expression. Later in the series, it was SO much better when Jacob stepped in.
