For the last 13 years, Melanie McGuire has been serving a life sentence for the murder and dismemberment of her husband, whose body was found in three suitcases in the Chesapeake Bay. The State’s case was based almost entirely on circumstantial evidence, and no forensic evidence was found at the alleged crime scene. Melanie proclaims her innocence to this day, but nearly out of options in the courts, she shares her version of events and appeal directly to the public for help. With Melanie’s full cooperation, two Criminologists (Dr. Meghan Sacks, and Dr. Amy Shlosberg) will examine the evidence, consult independent experts and explore over 50 hours of exclusive interviews with Melanie (from prison), her family, her friends, witnesses and experts on both sides of the trial looking to uncover the whole truth about this murder.

True Crime from a Criminologist perspective

Really well researched. Love the unique perspective and I find myself changing my mind every episode! Perfect amount of seriousness mixed with light humor. Can’t wait for the next episode!

Addicting to listen to!!!

This is a great podcast and really breaks down the case to someone who has never heard it before. It’s so easy to follow along!

Not worth your time...

Totally one sided trash. This sounds like two women sitting at the coffee shop gossiping.
