In January of 1989 the director of Oregon’s Department of Corrections, Michael Francke, was brutally stabbed to death outside his office in Salem. The murder was quickly ruled a “car burglary gone wrong” and pinned on a low-level drug dealer named Frank Gable, a man who Francke's own brother, Kevin, along with storied Oregon reporter Phil Stanford, believe has been wrongfully imprisoned for nearly 30 years. They contend Francke had uncovered a trail of corruption in the prison system— one that led to the top of Oregon’s political establishment. Murder In Oregon follows the two men on a decades-long journey, bordering on obsession, into Oregon’s drug and crime-infested underworld to answer one question: Who really killed Michael Francke?

Hanging on the edge of my seat

This is a well-produced, highly engaging podcast that exposes shocking corruption in the Oregon law enforcement and corrections bureaus. It will be hard to wait another week until the next episode!

MY FAV OF ALL PODS

I rate this series the highest on all points. The key ingredients to keep my interest no wasted time rehashing details every episode is fresh... I could listen to the story tellers for many more and never get bored. I love the honesty and admire the courage it took these brothers to stand up against a mighty stacked deck. What a gift to be loved the way you love !!! What a battle you fought!! Job Well Done Family!!

Too Slow

Story is interesting, but sloppy. Slow moving, filled with repetitive music. Stopped listening mid episode 4.
