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.

    Introducing Dead and Gone

    Introducing Dead and Gone. A podcast about the Grateful Dead and their missing and murdered fans. One of the most iconic bands in American history, “The Dead” as they’re affectionately called by their fans—self proclaimed "Dead Heads”—have been dogged by a darkness that has followed the band since its inception and despite the Grateful Dead’s ethos of peace and love and communal music, this darkness has led to the murder and the disappearance of some of the band’s most dedicated fans. Hosted by popular podcasters Payne Lindsey of Up and Vanished and Jake Brennan of Disgraceland, this podcast combines the distinct storytelling styles of both Payne's investigative style and Jake’s single-voice narrative style. From Tenderfoot TV and Double Elvis, this is Dead and Gone, a long, strange, deadly trip.

-My absolute favorite podcast-

I never write podcast reviews but this one “IT JUST CAME TO ME, like, OUT OF NOWHERE!” so I obviously had to share!

I HATE THIS STORY. I HATE THE SECRETS. I HATE THE gun night/apartment PLAYERS and THE HOLDERS OF THE HIDDEN TRUTH. I HATE THE POINT AT WHICH WE CURRENTLY WAIT.
oh... and the poets.

But I have a PROFOUND amount of respect for Rae. She embodies resilience, grace and a way with words we should all admire. I love the Andreacchio family and the people in the community and the world that support them! I do not know them personally but this story has left a little mark on my heart.💔 It’s just a neat coincidence but my name is Andrea and I was born February 26th...sadly the day Christian was murdered. For my birthday this year I am going to wish this case gain the traction it deserves! 🎂

~most importantly, I SWEAR, IN this GENeration, there are too many Web sluetHs & there Is noThing GOOD that can come from hiding the truth MAN!~

Insane!

This story is so heartbreaking yet strangely interesting at the same time! Once I started I couldn’t stop! And every time I hear his mama talk I just wanna give her a giant hug.

Shibby_Dude :D ,

Crazy!

This is a sad and a crazy mess. I cannot believe how much investigation failed this poor guy. I hope they open this case again because so much doesn’t add up. These one (or two) people clearly got away with murder and that’s not right! He needs justice
