Justice for Dee

Tecumseh, MI needs you. Dee Warner has not been seen since April 24, 2021. She and her husband, as well as two others, had a violent argument the night before. She wanted a divorce and was the owner of all of their vast property and farm lands. Her husband stood to lose in the divorce. We think he used farm chemicals to dissolve her body and work it into the soil. No luck with local and state police nor the FBI. WE NEED YOU.

Excellent Except for Horrible Audio

I think this is a fantastic podcast in every way except for their phone call audio. They rely heavily on phone interviews, and unfortunately the audio sounds like they’re talking with someone underwater. I listened to several episodes, but simply cannot get past the audio quality, so I unfollowed. If you don’t mind it, definitely give them a listen!
