Very superficial, no real investigating

To be fair, this was always going to be a difficult task given that the Delphi police will not share ANY information on the crime and locals that know more aren't talking much either. However, you can learn twice as much about this crime by going to the Wikipedia page as you learned from the podcast.

For example, the Wiki page lists several persons of interest, including one man who is very possibly guilty but committed suicide after he found out he was a suspect. There was not a single mention of him in the podcast - not even a mention that there was ever any person of interest at all. There was no discussion of how the community and the people involved might cope with knowing that they will never get justice or closure because of his suicide.

There was also no criticism AT ALL of how the police handled things, which is shocking given how much there is to work with there. The main investigator is very odd and IMO creepy but they treat him with reverence and just ask him constantly how he feels. They briefly mention that some have questioned why the police did certain things (such as withholding the video and audio of the killer for so long and continuing to withhold it to this day even though that is likely the only way locals could be able to identify the killer) but they always dismiss it quickly. The hosts act as if the police are experts who can do no wrong (even though the cops admit that they deal with almost no stranger murders so they have no experience handling this kind of crime). As others have said, it was very repetitive as well. The episodes were very surface level and seemed more like a PR piece for the town. They even did a whole episode with the city's PR/tourism person on everything Delphi has going for it other than the murders.

I expected a lot more journalism and investigative reporting rather than a fluff piece. While it was well produced and an easy listen (thus the two stars), it won't leave you feeling like you know much more than when you started. If you're interested in the crime just go look on YouTube or Wiki and you'll learn a lot more.

Down the hill

I love this podcast and have listened to it over and over.

Gets repetitive

Mostly conjecture, rehashing facts instead of new developments and interviewing people in the town - opinions and theories.
