Interview with Defense Attorney and Author of BONE DEEP, Joel Schwartz
This episode comes out for free on 7/13 and is available early and ad-free for Wondery+ subscribers.
You might remember episodes 287 and 288 when we covered the Betsy Faria case. Betsy was found dead in her home just two days after Christmas in 2011. Immediately suspicion fell on her husband Russ Faria, even though there was evidence pointing in the direction of one of Betsy’s friends, Pam Hupp. We got to sit down with one of the authors of Bone Deep, the first and only book on this case Joel Schwartz. Joel was Russ Faria’s defense attorney in both of his trials and ultimately got Russ exonerated. Joel was an absolute pleasure to have on the show and we hope you enjoy his one of a kind insight on this case!

Elva Zona Heaster Shue was married to the blacksmith in town, Erasmus “Edward” Stribbling Trout Shue.

Then as soon as they were married, things changed drastically and in the coming months more would be found out about this Edward character and more about Zona’s death.

Solving The Decades Old Murder of Loretta Jones
Loretta Jones was brutally murdered in her own Utah home back in 1970, all while her four year old daughter, Heidi was in the next room. Heidi knew all along who had killed her mother, she would try to tell the police herself and her grandmother would try to reiterate Heidi’s message as well but the police in the original investigation never considered Heidi a witness. Because of that and a lack of urgency, they were never able to get Tom put away for murder. Heidi never gave up on seeking out justice for her mother and 46 years later, because of Heidi and some great detective work, Loretta Jones murder would be solved.
The Unsolved Murder of Blake Tyler Chappell
Blake Tyler Chappell was a kind, promising and creative 17 year-old who went missing walking to a friend's house early in the morning on October 16, 2011 after a Homecoming dance. Two months later, he was found lying in a creek, dead from at least one single gunshot would to his head. He had been to a dance the night that he went missing and told his mother that it was one of the best nights of his life. After over a decade of no answers, we still don't know the identity of his killer.

Brad's Bonkers Listener Tale
Well this started as a regular Listener Tale episode where we had a handful of great stories to tell you. What it turned into is an epic journey through one listener's truly harrowing experience in a very haunted home. Brad gets the spotlight today as he brings us through "The happenings" in an old house on a hill. There are deaths, demonic growls, entrapments, creatures hiding in the crawlspace and straight up teleportation (we think? Let us know, Pookie). ENJOY! This was a great tale and we are so thankful Brad shared it with all of us!
These weirdos are the best in the game. Great storytelling while remaining respectful of the victims and not so subtly shading the garbage humans who commit these crimes. Also love having 3 episodes a week! Never change ladies.
I just want to say I literally love you guys. I found you not too long before my husband and I lost our baby and to say that you have helped me is an understatement. I had to go back to work quickly and didn’t get much time to process or grieve, and listening to your podcast has helped me to keep my mind focused and get through each day. I think the way you guys present each case, listener tale, and creepy story is fun and relatable. And for a Christian woman who is married to a police officer, I’ve never once felt dismissed or offended by this podcast. And I can’t say the same for other podcasts I’ve listened to. And for everyone getting upset about Wondry, I don’t get it because you just have to wait a little longer.. the episode will still be there lol.
Any way, thank you guys so so much for being you. You are the best❤️
Annoying voices, opinions and pandering. Bad story telling and bad jokes.
