Who Killed Reporter Don Bolles? The Daughters on Dueling Sides
In June 1976, Phoenix newspaper journalist Don Bolles was blown up by a bomb placed under his car while he took a business meeting at the Hotel Clarendon about a possible land fraud story. Because of Bolles' reporting on Mafia involvement in Arizona and poor business dealings, rumors swirled about who was behind the murder. This is the story of the daughters–the daughter of the man twice convicted for masterminding the attack who says her father was framed, and the daughter of Don Bolles, who shares her thoughts on the new revelations and who she believes was involved in her father’s death.

In 2023, the AG’s office granted Barry Jones a plea deal and said he did not cause the girl’s injuries, but should have sought out medical care for her. He walked out of death row after 29 years, with the unexpected support of the victim’s sister.

This is my favorite podcast. However, I’m not sure why the background sound effects have become so distracting, please address it, it’s being OVERDONE. It should add, not subtract from the production. Please reconsider the background sound level! it’s stressful.
