Aftermath

Police receive a phone call from a desperate daughter, who says her father is threatening to take his own life. Officers arrive and find the man sitting in his garage with the car running. They risk their own lives to break in and rescue the man. While the man is recovering in the hospital, he starts to mutter “she deserved it”. An alert Detective Bryson is there to hear it and begins to investigate – he quickly finds that the victim is also a suspect.

A Dirty Deal

In quiet, suburban neighborhoods, illegal marijuana grows can be hidden in plain sight – even in states that have legalized the plant. They also are sometimes connected to other nefarious activities, as Detective Nick finds in today’s episode. Through dogged work, Nick and his team discover two substantial illegal marijuana operations and in so doing uncover a dark web of abuse that’s far more insidious and inhumane.

Justice for Wilder

A desperate 911 call leads police to the home of a wealthy man and his live-in girlfriend. What they find is one of the most tragic scenes officers encounter, the death of a child. The adults maintain the death is a terrible accident, but investigators suspect something far worse. Chief Investigator Tye doggedly follows the trail of evidence until he’s finally able to get Justice for Wilder.

Thanksgiving Leftovers: Mother’s Day

Hello, Small Town Fam! Today we share a Small Town Classic, Mother’s Day, which is really an episode about the importance of family and the healing that can come when we choose to open up to one another. Normally we would be off this week for the holiday, but we wanted to give our listeners a little something special as you recover from your turkey hangovers, heat up the cold mashed potatoes, wash a sink full of plates and pans, or prepare to make your way home from wherever it is you celebrated this year. Happy Thanksgiving, y’all, and we’ll be back next week with a brand new episode of Small Town Dicks!

No Way!

Officer Patrick gets called to investigate a complaint about stolen wages at a local restaurant and as he stumbles upon a decades-old DNA mystery that involves his own family. This is the story of how a small town detective, through a series of wild coincidences and lotto-level good luck, manages to solve the case of his life.

Charlie Bear

In Detective Matt’s small town there is a spot called Fisherman’s Cut. It’s not easy to find – off the main highway, down a dirt road you’d probably never notice if you hadn’t been there before, around a bend you can’t see until it’s too late. It’s where, as Matt is getting ready to leave work for the holidays, someone reports finding a woman’s dead body. Through a combination of keen observation and some good luck, Matt and his team find a suspect. The suspect is brought in for an interview. As Detective Matt begins his interrogation, he starts to wonder, ‘Am I looking into the eyes of a serial killer?’

The Bodysnatchers

Your favorite Scottish detective, retired chief constable Tom, brings us a gruesome case from the 1820s of how two depraved criminals went on a year-long killing spree while the rich and powerful of Edinburgh, Scotland all but turned a blind eye. Ultimately, the crimes of these two men brought about police reforms and social change but not before there were bodies everywhere.

Unfinished Business

Paul Holes is a bestselling author, podcaster, television host and retired cold-case investigator with the sheriff’s and district attorney’s offices in California’s Contra Costa County. During his 27 years as an investigator, Holes used his behavioral and forensic expertise in such notable cases as the Zodiac murders, Golden State Killer, and Jaycee Dugard kidnapping. In May 2022, Holes published “Unmasked: My Life Solving America’s Cold Cases” – which became an instant New York Times bestseller. Paul teamed with the FBI and Sacramento DA to help identify Joseph DeAngelo as the Golden State Killer, the most prolific serial predator in U.S. history. In 2019, he teamed up with Oxygen to host ”The DNA of Murder with Paul Holes” and in November he’s launching a new original series with HLN called, ”Real Life Nightmare with Paul Holes.”

At Last

On August 4, 1986, a young girl took a bike ride through Point Defiance Park near Tacoma, Washington. She never returned home. Investigators conducted a desperate search but came up empty handed. The case went dormant for decades and eventually ended up on the desk of cold-case detective Lindsey Wade. Through the application of emerging DNA testing and hard work, Wade and her fellow detectives were finally able to piece together what happened that day and bring closure to the family.
