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.

WOW!

I’m on the penultimate episode and it’s the only podcast that I’ve listened to, with the only exception being “Up and Vanished”. And I continue to say, “Wow” after every episode.

Your entire crew must be exhausted, but I truly hope you do another Podcast soon. I think I’ll have separation anxiety if you don’t. This is bar none the best produced and narrated Podcast I ever heard.

Encore maestro, please.

Great podcast

I was hooked from the beginning. Great podcast and a gut wrenching story. This family deserves a better investigation into their son’s death then what they got.

Manipulative

I quit listening in episode 8 because I felt super manipulated in episode 7 when they casually mention a string of graphic suicidal texts. She was toxic. He was suicidal. The whole thing is tragic. There, I fixed it. Save yourself the time.
