    02. She Kinda Looks Like Your Wife

    To truly understand Jamie Osuna and his history of violence, you have to understand how he was caught for the 2011 murder of Yvette Pena.

Excellent job

I live in Bakersfield. We have a lot of gang violence. There are always murders reported on our local news. But Jaime Osuma is really scary. This reporter does an excellent job with this podcast.

Heartbreaking

This story is so well told. Although, it is heartbreaking and will rip out your soul, Olivia tells this story with great detail and respect for the victims family. Episode 4 will leave you in tears. She does a good job portraying the victims as victims and the monster Jamie as a the true monster he is.
