Episodes

  • The Worst Murder Yet

    05/08/2019 Duration: 34min

    Our ex-cop, John, tells his son Paul a truly unprecedented story from the Loose Units case files. A terrible killing leads to a missing murder weapon, which leads, in turn, to what John and Paul referred to as a "kerfuffle", but which may be considerably worse. They also leap into some grimy, intense forensics techniques, and discuss Dad's beverage of choice during a case.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
