It was a murder with no eyewitnesses. No physical evidence. A star witness for the prosecution killed before he could testify, and a jury that didn’t get to see all of the evidence - until now.

This is a story 15 years in the making. It is a search for justice in a criminal justice system that is willing to send someone to prison without ever examining powerful evidence of innocence. It is the profile an unforgettable little girl who felt abandoned by the people and institutions that were supposed to protect her, and a chilling example of a nightmare that could happen to anyone---even you.

Kimberly long was an emergency room nurse who was found guilty of murdering her boyfriend back in 2006. Since then, we have been able to get a hold of 15 years worth case files and evidence: the police interrogations, crime scene photos, lie detector tests and an explosive piece of evidence that convinced the judge in her trial to say “she’s probably innocent”. We tracked down jurors who convicted her---and showed them the evidence they never had a chance to see.

Whether you believe she did it or not, her extraordinary case shows us how flaws in the justice system can impact the lives of ordinary people - people in prison who happen to be innocent, and have no way of convincing a court to set them free.

Outstanding investigative report!

Great podcast for those who loved Serial, Dirty John, and other criminal cases. Incredible job of researching the facts, conducting interviews, and talking with original jurors. Both sides of the case seemed to be presented fairly. This case is heartbreaking though. It opens your eyes to the reality that innocent people do go to prison. Through the investigative work of this reporter you realize the system does fail. Hopefully, exposure of cases like this will cause changes to occur.

Flawed Justice Review

Good storytelling weaving together many different audio elements. I particularly enjoyed the use of recordings from different points of investigation

Excellent Journalism

There are true crime podcasts that are really just news stories, which leaves a lot to be desired and the listener with more questions than answers, then there's rock-solid, in-depth, investigative journalism. Flawed Justice is the latter. Amazing storytelling. I highly recommend the entire podcast. Bravo CBS Local!
