The Mississippi Hangings
< 1 day ago
In October of 1990, a man named David Scott Campbell was arrested in Philadelphia, Mississippi... the same city where, 30 years prior, three civil rights workers had been abducted and murdered by members of the KKK. On his first night in prison - which, coincidentally, was also his 21st birthday - Campbell took his own life.
Two years later, in August of 1992, a young man from Jackson, MS met a same fate. Andre Jones, the eighteen-year-old son of a NAACP chapter president and a Nation of Islam minister, was arrested and transferred to a neighboring county. There, he also met his unfortunate end.
These two young men were just endemic of a larger problem plaguing Mississippi jails and prisons over a six-year period, from 1987 to 1993. During that time span, an unusually-high number of inmates/prisoners ended up taking their own lives... and the cause is still unknown.

Great for True Crime addicts!
Discovered this podcast on YouTube, hooked pretty quickly! Well researched and detailed, covering some more unknown cases which deserve our attention. Misty Copsey was particularly well done, methinks.
Host Michael is great at telling the stories, keeping it interesting and respectful, who I believe, writes and produces, too. So, great job, Michael! Will look forward to future episodes.

The best true crime podcast out there
Most other podcasts focus on sensationalistic story-telling or banter between the hosts, and they don't tend to include much research beyond what anybody could read in Wikipedia or a popular book. Unresolved leaves all this by the wayside and focuses on real journalism about some unapologetically difficult true crime cases. The way the host forms the unresolved facts into a compelling narrative is absolutely top-notch. He does a very good job of explaining the complex details about each case, and has an honest and even-handed approach to analysis. Unresolved is an absolute must for true crime fans.

Good but has issues
The subject matter is well researched and podcast covers cases that I've never come across on other true crime podcasts which is why I keep listening in spite of some significant negatives. My negative comments have mostly to do with the music and editing. The music is for the most part terrible, at times highly annoying, and often distracts from the show. There are long gaps of breaks with more annoying music, between 20 seconds up to 2 minutes multiple times every episode that are completely pointless and should be cut out.

This podcast has grown on me in an interesting way and I'm enjoying it more and more as I work my way backwards. I appreciate the long format (and sometimes multiple parters!) which let's you get really deep into the stories. Thanks for taking the time to make this podcast!

Great show - bad app? bad editing?
Hello, love the show. I stream this using Stitcher on a Samsung Galaxy Note 5 - Verizon. Lately this show, and seemingly only this show, skips around and repeats often. I don't understand. Did the editing go down the chute, or is something else happening?

I just recently discovered this podcast and absolutely love it. Of course the stories are tragic and extremely upsetting, especially the “Hughes Family” which I just finished listening to. Micheal is a great story teller.

Massive, massive content warning
Extremely disturbing and violent. More of a "true crime" show than an "unsolved mysteries" show.
