MURDERED: Matthew, Daniel, & Islan

Play episode

This week we have a very special episode for Pride Month. We tell the stories of three people joined together not just by the desire to live peaceful, happy lives as their authentic selves, but also because they faced a similar indignity in how our legal system allowed injustice in their cases.

I've been crime-obsessed since birth and the only thing I love more than true crime is my dog, Charlie. My work with Crime Stoppers has led me to do this podcast, and I am so excited to be your new true crime dealer.
