RETAKE - Episode 112: Marty Duram
In 2015, Marty and Glenna Duram were married and living their lives together in a rural area of Michigan. When neighbors didn't hear from the couple for a few days, they went to check and found a gruesome scene where Marty had been shot to death and Glenna was taken to the hospital to treat a gunshot wound herself. The story that unfolded is one of the strangest and most unique stories with one of the most unusual witnesses to the crime that we have ever heard of. After we aired the original episode, Marty's ex-wife reached out to us to let us know that there was a lot of information that was incorrect in our research due to news media twisting facts and narratives to tell a "good story" rather than the true story. In conjunction with Christina, we have taken our original audio and inserted clips from an interview to correct the information that will be found if you research this case. By doing so, we hope to cover all the bases of fact and fiction in order to get the most accurate version of the story of Marty Duram's murder told.

Clare Wood is a name with a legacy that will last for decades to come due to the work of her father, Michael Brown. Clare's life was brutally stolen from her by an asshole who didn't understand or tolerate a woman rejecting him, then proceeded to steal justice from her family in the aftermath. No one in Clare's life knew what she was truly going through until after her sudden murder, and even Clare herself didn't know who she had gotten involved with while she dated George Applewood.

Episode 105: Michael and Dalia Dippolito Part 2
Newlyweds Dalia and Michael were off to a rocky start just six months into their marriage, and Dalia decided she was done.

Thankfully that desperation made her incredibly easy to convict, although the absolute senselessness of her defense arguments also sealed her fate quite effectively.

Episode 101: Steven Pladl Part 2
Some people just aren't built for having families, and we believe Steven is one of those people. This story is fraught with abuse in all forms, perpetuated by one of the worst human meat bags we have covered so far. In Part 2, we bring you the conclusion of the Pladl story as well as discuss the phenomenon of Genetic Sexual Attraction to add some context to the situation with Steven and Katie. In this story there is no closure, no reform, and there is most certainly no justice. Please be advised, this episode includes discussion of the murder of an infant that may be difficult to listen to.

Episode 99: Denise Amber Lee
Most of us have been taught from a young age that if we are in trouble and there is an emergency, we should call 911 for help. But what happens when we do everything right: we call the number, we give the information, and it still isn't enough? Denise's story is a tragic example of everyone doing exactly what we have been taught, and somehow still failing the person who needed help most.

Episode 97: Lynn Turner
Often when we hear about Black Widows, we see the pattern of a cunning woman who plays the part of the grieving widow in order to maintain her cover. Lynn Turner did no such thing. Lynn lacked any kind of discretion when it came to getting exactly what she wanted, and she didn't try to make anyone like her except for the men she went after. Lynn's actions would go on to be documented in several true crime television shows, and actually became the inspiration for another case we covered in a previous episode.
