    EP 110 - So Angelic

    Welcome back to Death by Champagne, the podcast here to keep you up at night! This week we are bringing you two separate cases. I cover a string of cold cases from the 70’s referred to as the Stanford Murders. One of which remains unsolved to this day. Mackenzie takes us on a trip down I-70 where a number of seemingly random attacks on retail workers leaves numerous counties in fear when it appears all of these murders were done by the same individual.

    This episode contains foul language and discussions about murder, descriptions of remains, and sexual assault. We’ll do our best to stay on track but the bottles are popped.

Dr. Stacey Hughes ,

Must listen

Don’t miss out on this amazing podcast!

Melaniewy ,

Don’t waste your time

Would be halfway decent if the hosts didn’t cuss as much and get on with the story . Too much whining back and forth before getting to the story lines .
