From the creators of Root of Evil comes a new documentary series about the stories and family we can't escape. Jackee Taylor has been hidden in WITSEC, better known as the Witness Protection Program, for almost 40 years. But after a strange and violent incident reveals secrets about her past, Jackee begins a journey to find out the truth about herself, and her family. Hers is a twisted tale of darkness, murder, mystery, tragedy, and resilience, which traverses the country, and lands in the most violent era of one of the country’s most violent cities - 1970s Cleveland. At the heart of this story is Jackee’s relative - a former member of the world’s most powerful motorcycle club, a sociopath, a killer, and an informant. Jackee can't move forward unless she reconciles with his past. She’s finally telling this story in the hopes that others don't have to live the kind of life that she has.
Relative Unknown is an Audacy original.

Only one person to blame

Love C13 originals. Love the narrators, the rawness and the different subject matters. This podcast at times was difficult to listen to however. I questioned whether I wanted to continue listening. I know she gets it that her father was a hardened narcissistic sociopath that raped, killed and probably enjoyed most of it.
It’s sad that kids and wives get caught up in these criminal’s lives. She has one person to blame, that’s her father. I give her kudos to tell the cautionary tale of life in organized crime and how it doesn’t hurt the criminals but instead their families. I feel badly that she was dealt a horrible hand when it came to “fathers”. I think it would have been even more profound had it not been reduced to “the government is bad”. Her story is tragic and bravely told. I only wish that the story had kept a focus.

This story was INSANE. I appreciated how raw the host was about her emotions, and as someone so actively involved in the story she gets amazing access.

I will never forget the terror!

I’ll never forget the terror I felt as a kid when the Hails Angeles terrorized our family while camping.
