    The Stomps: Love Saga Turned Tragedy

    The Stomps: Love Saga Turned Tragedy

    What really happened to Jerry Stomps on the fateful day of his disappearance near Oxbow Park? Join us as we explore the baffling true crime story of Jerry and Hazelynn Stomps. The story begins with the harrowing discovery of an injured Hazelynn Stomps near the Gordon Creek Bridge in the rural community of Corbett, Oregon. For good Samaritans Gerald Ford and James Pogue, that startling discovery sets off a surprising chain of events revealing just how quickly a love story can turn into tragedy. 

    We’ll put together the puzzling pieces of the unsettling case beginning with a bizarre incident involving Jerry and Lynn at a local park. Their meeting with a potential buyer for their fishing boat takes a dark turn when an unknown man attacks them, leaving Lynn in the hospital severely injured, and Jerry missing. As we piece together the events, Lynn provides crucial details about their meeting with a man named Dave, raising questions about the true motives behind this violent encounter and the confusion that ensues.

    Troubling clues are unearthed as we continue to examine the investigation, following the violent attack that Lynn described. For one, Lynn's suspicious behavior starts raising eyebrows as the search and rescue efforts prove fruitless. We’ll discuss this and other aspects of the investigation leading us to the discovery of vital evidence including a concealed gun in, of all things, a fanny pack found in the couple’s home. With mitochondrial DNA evidence linking the human remains found on their property (*Spoiler Alert!*) to Jerry, a troubling suspicion becomes harsh reality for the couple’s family & friends. Maybe the Stomps’ marriage wasn’t exactly a story book romance, after all. Finally, we’ll reveal the prosecution’s theory about Lynn's ill-fated attempt to stage her husband's “accidental” death, as well as reflect on her conviction, and the massive financial fallout for their family.

    Innocence & Injustice: The Steve Titus Story - Part 2

    Innocence & Injustice: The Steve Titus Story - Part 2

    In Part 2 we’re diving back into the harrowing tale of Steve Titus, a man wrongfully convicted of first-degree rape in Washington State. Following his arrest, he was taken aback to realize that the entire system seemed determined to see him imprisoned despite his pleas of innocence. It flew in the face of what many who are unacquainted assume about the criminal justice system. No system can be perfect, but as an innocent man, he felt certain that of his vindication in the ultimate fight for truth and justice. Despite initially favoring acquittal, once deliberation came to a close, the jury ultimately delivered a guilty verdict.

    We’ll explore the faulty identification process – how a faulty photo lineup and deeply flawed identification led to Steve's conviction. We’ll also discuss the relentless efforts by award-winning investigative journalist Paul Henderson, and new defense attorney Jeff Jones to uncover the truth. Their committed efforts would reveal significant flaws in the prosecution's case, casting doubt on the integrity of the police investigation led by Detective Ron Parker. Discover the shocking inconsistencies in the evidence and the dubious actions of Detective Ron Parker that do far more than simply cast doubt on Titus’s guilt. Now that’s dedication! Without which – it’s very possible that the eventual discovery of the real perpetrator, Edward Lee King, may never have materialized.

    This episode unpacks some of the systemic failures of the justice system. Our discussion attempts to center the toll exacted on not only Steve Titus – but also his loved ones. The consequences, both emotional and financial, were severe and deeply troubling, as was, sadly, the eventual vindication that came too late for a man who had already lost so much. Join us we unravel the intricate details of this case, highlighting the critical role that ethical professionals working within the law enforcement and journalistic fields can play in our communities, and the justice system. Don't miss this compelling episode jam-packed with Paul Henderson’s investigative efforts and discoveries, and a cursory glance at the real perpetrator, Edward Lee King, along with his connection to similar crimes.

Spooky and Fun

I love listening to Cassie and Caitlyn! Not only do they have interesting creepy stories to tell, but they’re fun to listen to, and they’re as nice as they come. Keep it up ladies! I’ll admit that Halloween time is my FAVORITE time to listen. I also love it when Caitlyn gets particularly creeped out about something, her reactions are priceless.

Wonderful time

Painful

I didn't think there could be something out there worse than the Crime Junkies podcast, I was wrong. Too much fake gasping, canned responses, giggling, and lack of content to be listenable. I'm sure they're nice people but I can't listen to this.
