    Runaway Joe: 01 - A Question of Identity

    It's 1985 and a country estate owner and movie industry worker in Ireland finds himself up before a Dublin court facing an extradition trial. His wife pleads his innocence. He tells the judge - and anyone who'll listen - "you have the wrong man". None of this story makes sense. Apart from his fingerprints. Fingerprints don't lie. Has his true identity finally been rumbled? The real question is - how did he end up here? (Ep 1/9)

    Runaway Joe: 02 - June and Joe

    We travel to Rochester, New York, back to the beginning, to find out where this story really starts. What we find is a young girl who grew into a woman, living her dream and looking for true love. And a young boy who liked to talk with an Irish accent who grew into a man but never really grew up. Love blossomed between them. But then control kicked in. And what began as a whirlwind love story spirals into a hellish nightmare. This was never going to end well. (Ep 2/9)

    Having been charged with the first-degree murder of his ex-wife, Joseph Michael Maloney is imprisoned and awaits trial.

Against child mutilation ,

Duncanomics ,

Super interesting!

Love this binge!

hyperberry ,

The courts aren’t doing enough!!!

The season on Samantha needs to go viral. That woman is terrifying! The deception she employs while trying to be hired as an au pair or nanny is just so scary. And she keeps getting released into the public to prey upon families over and over again! It’s so awful!
