I listened to dozens of Podcasts and this is a very good one. The Podcasts are not scripted like a lot of others that speculate on stuff. Lots of actual interviews with the people that are involved. Not tons of commercials and doesn’t lean to always blaming law enforcement for every single thing. Just factual and not biased. A nice change.
Alabama True Crime
So thankful you have shined light on the Eric Cates and Gypsie murder. I know some of his family and I am so very thankful that someone is finally discussing the logistics of this case. Several of us from work started listening to this podcast and now I have also listened to season 1 as well. I have actually lived in Wetumpka so that hits close to home as well. Hopefully people will start coming forward with information to solve these cases. Thank you again!!!
So I just started listening, but it so weird to me how Eric said he was going to a bbq Friday night and the next day he was found burned in his truck. Hopefully as I move threw the podcast some light will be shed on that. Just very odd to me.
