    The town of Groton, Mass had never witnessed such a tragedy. A tragedy that would test the love and loyalty of one family. The bond between family can never be broken but the love and loyalty between can sometimes be tried so hard that it’s severed. Orion Krause learned this lesson all too well in the summer of 2017.

    Thanksgiving of 2012 started off very poorly for the Redwine Family. When one member of their clan, 13-year-old Dylan Redwine vanished on November 18th, an expensive and lengthy search of the Colorado Mountains ensued. What they found over the course of a decade exhausted investigatory resources and frustrated the community. By the time an arrest was made, everyone already knew who had taken Dylan.

    In Oshkosh, Wisconsin, the city known for making overalls, tension was mounting between two Marine veterans over the repair of a vehicle.

    When Patricia Velazquez left her 12-year-old daughter Yhoanna home alone for a few hours on August 10th, 2017, she expected to return home to a living, breathing child. Yhoanna was a good kid who followed all of her mother’s rules, so Patricia felt no need to worry. The nightmare Patricia returned home to that evening would change her life forever. Yhoanna hadn’t been abducted from her home like many children are, she was dead on her bedroom floor.

Best Crime Podcast

This podcast is the best and only true crime I’ve been able to tolerate. I love all of the gory details, 9-1-1 calls, evidence, court recordings and more! It’s definitely creepy and gets your heart pounding at times and a lot of other times makes you wonder why people are such monsters. I love how Mike will inform us about laws (or lack thereof...ahem, Canada), so it puts things into perspective. Even better is Mike’s extremely dry humor and input at just the right time! I find myself laughing (yes I know, this is a murder podcast, but you’re morbid too or else you wouldn’t be here). This definitely keeps me looking over my shoulder on my early morning runs while listening. Keep it up!

One of my favorites.

Specifically, episode 175 was one of the most powerful podcasts I’ve ever heard. An amazing story perfectly told. Thank you.
