#422: Wondery Present: Stolen Hearts

Sergeant Jill Evans is a small-town cop in Wales with an impressive record in her job, and a less than impressive record in her love life. After three engagements, two divorces and one affair, she’s beginning to worry that love is only true in fairy tales. That is until she meets: Dean. He’s a wealthy beauty entrepreneur with his own range of toiletries. Girl meets boy. Boy meets girl. They kiss and fall in love. Roll credits. But that would be boring, wouldn’t it?

Hosted by Ash Kelley and Alaina Urquhart from the hit show Morbid. When 90-year-old Laurence Pilgeram drops dead on the sidewalk outside his condo, you might think that’s the end of his story. But, really, it’s just the beginning. Because Laurence and others like him have signed up to be frozen and brought back to life in the future. And that belief will pull multiple generations of the Pilgeram family into a cryonics soap opera filled with dead pets, gold coins, grenades, fist fights,...

Introducing SUSPECT: Vanished in the Snow

For more than three and a half decades, the disappearance of 12-year-old Jonelle Matthews was a mystery – a riddle neither authorities nor her family members could solve. The residents of her cloistered Colorado hometown had scoured every inch of prairie. Jonelle’s face had been on milk cartons nationwide. Even the President of the United States had appealed to the public for help. Still, every lead had fizzled. Every person of interest had turned out to be a dead end. Then, in 2019,...

#412: Profiling the Murders of Laci Peterson and Conner Peterson | Part 5

Jim and Laura continue to behaviorally and forensically deconstruct the movements, actions, inactions, and lies of Scott Peterson after the disappearance of his pregnant wife Laci Peterson. Why did he decide to go fishing in that particular spot 90 miles away from his home instead of the many closer water bodies, better suited to his boat?

#408: Profiling the Murders of Laci Peterson and Conner Peterson | Part 1

When you say the name Laci Peterson many of us conjure up the sweet smiling face of a woman, who was eight months pregnant, glowing with excitement for the imminent birth of her son Conner. That image is juxtaposed with the terrible knowledge that before Laci could hold her baby in her arms, she was brutally murdered. Both Laci and Conner's bodies were found in the San Francisco Bay in April 2003. Laci's husband, Scott Peterson was convicted of her and Conner’s murder in 2004. But this case...
