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.

Great Team

This was a super good podcast. The host is great, pleasant, his voice is very smooth too. I loved when Rae spoke as well as when the “team” with Sheila came. The story was thoroughly researched. I am a firm believer in season 1 as a no suicide. Christian’s family is remarkably well spoken. You would expect a lot of crying and that was the opposite. It made for a really positive listening experience.

In the end I think all the listeners overwhelmingly agree this was murder. Whitley, Dylan and Hayes all participants in this game. Dylan along with Whitley will get what they got coming.
