    Ep 1 of 10: The Miracle Mile Massacre

    On May 5, 2003, Chi Hyon Song, a 30-year-old mother, along with her two-year-old son, and their 56-year-old nanny Eun Sik Min, were all slain, execution-style, in their modest apartment in Koreatown.  
    LAPD detectives first suspected Song’s husband, but his alibi was air tight. With no other suspects, the case goes cold. That is, until 2008, when a law enforcement DNA database turned up a new connection to the case.

Drop the faux dialogue

The content is interesting enough - just tell it. Stop with the faux dialogue (“Oh really? Like what? Tell me more.”) - it’s contrived and unnecessary.

Thoughts

What about the ribbon of the typewriter findings with the weird written passage talking about “lying in a pool of misery without happiness” and “need your arms to hold me, the cold sharpness that you possess?” Very sinister statements. Does this indícate that Robyn had an obsession with the wife or a personal relationship with her? I wish this would have been delved into deeper because it was just thrown in and not talked about. This spells guilt for me and stuck out to me.

Keep it going!

I’m really enjoying this podcast. I hope you keep it going with new cases. This one on K-Town is very interesting, although those police detectives are laughable during the interrogation. I can actually picture them high-fiving each other in the corridor. The critique by the retired interrogator was a very good addition to the story.
