Proof is a new investigative true crime podcast from Susan Simpson of Undisclosed and the producers of Evil Lives Here.

On an October night in 1996, a gunshot rattles the walls of a double-wide trailer on the outskirts of Rome, Georgia. 15-year-old Brian Bowling is laying on the floor of his room, head bleeding from a gunshot wound. By the next morning, Brian is dead.

Investigators quickly conclude that Brian’s wound was self-inflicted, the tragic result of teenage bravado.

And yet within six months, two friends are arrested and accused of plotting to kill Brian. Cain Joshua Story and Darrell Lee Clark are convicted and sentenced to life in prison, where they remain today.

An evil teenage plot? A horrible tragic accident? Or, a blatant miscarriage of justice?

In this first season of PROOF, Susan Simpson and Jacinda Davis drive the back roads of Rome, searching for the truth.
