As you gather with friends and family this Thanksgiving season, we invite you to pull up a chair and join us for a very special episode in which we talk to the woman who raised detectives Dan and Dave, and find out what it’s like to be the mother of not one, but two cops.
When a child first reveals they are the victim of abuse it’s a process police call “disclosure.” That’s where Nichole comes in. She’s a trained forensic investigator and relies on a mix of research and empathy to give the victims a voice and bring criminals to justice.
Det. Jay and his team investigate the murder of a homeless man who is found stabbed to death in a public park. After a slow start, the investigation focuses on three men, including a charismatic leader in the local meth community, and an ex-con who’s fled to a nearby state to become a standup comedian.
Paul, Dan, and Dave talk about what it’s like to lead a murder investigation, interacting with the families of victims, and how DNA is changing the way murder investigations are conducted. WARNING: This episode contains graphic descriptions of sex crimes and violence. Listener discretion is advised.
