A 7-part murder mystery.

The murder of Victor Decker is the only unsolved cop killing in Hampton Roads.

If it wasn’t the perfect crime, it was close enough.

Seven years after this decorated police officer was found with a bullet in his head, no one has been convicted — or even prosecuted.

The Virginian-Pilot spent months peering into the shadows of this high-profile whodunnit, following its twists and turns, uncovering its dark secrets.

Police and prosecutors say they’ve got Decker’s killers behind bars — even if it is for other crimes.

There’s a good chance the real killer is still out there.

Excellent podcast!

Added this great podcast to my list of favorites! I knew right away this was well investigated and professionally.

One of the two or three best I've ever fond in the genre

I'm sure there are lots of True Crime buffs who, like me, have gotten really tired of wading through all the amatuerish junk that has flooded iTunes in that category the last few years, looking for something worthwhile. Well, you just found one. Professionally produced, i.e., not in someone's living room, by veteran journalists who know how to construct a coherent narrative. Most of the interviews are done in person, rather than by telephone with the atrocious audio quality that usually results; the interviews are concisely edited, not long, rambling and incoherent. They don't solve the case (no podcast in this genre ever has, as far as I know), but they sure make these lazy, incompetent cops and prosecutors look ridiculous. I wish they'd find another case and do another season.

Great!

Please don’t ever find yourself murdered in Virginia Beach or Norfolk. This was a very well done podcast, but I will be honest it was an indictment of the shoddy police and prosecutors and how they treated the death of one of “their own” .
