Waargebeurde misdaad – Nieuw-Zeeland – Nieuwe podcasts

  • Ruby Franke, a Utah mom turned YouTube โ€œmomfluencerโ€ who amassed 2.6 million subscribers, was known for her strict disciplinarian parenting style. But authorities now say that her "tough love" was actually child abuse. Ruby Franke's son escaped from the Utah home of her self-help business partner, Jodi Hildebrandt. The boy was reportedly starved and tied up with duct tape along with his 10 year old sister. As law enforcement dug deeper, they uncovered injuries, torture, and emotional harm inflicted by both Franke and Hildebrandt. Law&Crime takes you behind the scenes, from Ruby and Jodi's path to internet stardom, to the investigation that brought them down.

  • What if someone close to you just … vanished one day? That happens to tens of thousands of families a year in Japan, and it happened to Jake Adelstein, too, back in 2018 — when his accountant disappeared, just before tax day. Adelstein, the author of Tokyo Vice, and co-host Shoko Plambeck go in search of that missing accountant, and take us on a journey into the fascinating and bizarre world of Japan’s johatsu, or “evaporated” people.

  • How do! My name is Sam (formerly known as Mr Samworth the Prison Officer) and I would like to welcome you to my Podcast

    I told my story in my book, "Strangeways a Prison Officer's Story", which was in the Sunday Times Top 10 bestseller list. Since publishing my book I have been contacted by many members of the public including ex prisoners, other prison officers, paramedics and fire fighters. I have been very moved by their stories and their struggles with mental health and so I have set up this Podcast in the hope that I can help to support others who are having a difficult time.

    As a result of my prison career and specific incidents at Strangeways my mental health suffered and I was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Knowing what a struggle it has been for me to recover from my mental health issues I want to do what I can to encourage others to get the help and support that they need.

  • I am a retired Special Agent that worked for the US Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Department of Veterans Affairs for over 20 years. What I will discuss is the actual cases that I was the primary investigator and most were โ€œwhite collarโ€ fraud cases which resulted in convictions. A desire to be in law enforcement started at a young age for me and as I look back at my young adventures as a boy, I realized they played a part in my future career.

    Many of the details and the actual stories are public record. During my Special Agent career I was the affiant for 25 search warrants and each one of these affidavits told a story. I have changed the names of the defendants, just to keep the ghosts away but other details are fairly accurate to what happened. I don't have a lot of source material from then, but have a pretty good memory.

    If you have a desire to go into federal law enforcement, this will provide some background and education, and insight into โ€œwhite collarโ€ criminal investigations. I hope these stories are both informative and entertaining.

    I retired in 2012, and have been working as a computer forensic analyst and manager for several large companies.

  • In this podcast we will dive into the nightmares of healthcare professionals who bestow their knowledge of medicine against us when we are most vulnerable and commit murder. We are not healthcare professionals, we are just fans of true crime.

  • In May 2017, 49-year-old builder Michael McGrath disappeared, almost without trace.
    No crime scene was ever found.
    No weapon was ever found.
    No body was ever found.
    So how could his longtime friend be arrested and charged with murder?
    In February 2023, the trial of David Charles Benbow finally began.
    Benbow stood accused of murdering McGrath because he’d started a relationship with Benbow’s former partner, Joanna Green.
    The prosecution said that, while based entirely on circumstantial evidence, its case was so comprehensive there could be no doubt Benbow was guilty.
    The defence said detectives were biased, working hard to build a case against Benbow after he was identified as a prime suspect - by Green.
    Stuff, New Zealand’s award-winning leader in true crime podcasts (Black Hands, The Commune, Gone Fishing) presents The Trial.

    Hear the evidence. Follow the twists and turns. Wait - for the verdict.

    WARNING: This series contains some strong language and content that may upset some people.

  • Don Bolles wanted to be the best reporter in Arizona. That was all he wanted. It had always been enough for him. Above all, Bolles was a shrewd reporter, a writer of cautionary tales. Suffice it to say that Don Bolles lived for little more than his work and his family. He did not die satisfactorily.

    Bolles had been an investigative reporter for 14 years. He prided himself on his accuracy. It was a quality on which he placed the highest value. Since going to work for the Arizona Republic in 1962, Bolles had rapidly become the state’s leading journalist and nominated in ‘65 for a Pulitzer for his investigative work.

    On Wednesday morning, June 2nd, 1976, Bolles agreed to meet an informant at the swanky downtown Phoenix Clarendon Hotel. After a no-show from the informant, Bolles got into his car to leave. Reversing a few yards, it was then that the explosion occurred.

    The blast ripped the car’s four hubcaps off, and cut a 2’ hole in the floor beneath the driver’s seat. A huge cloud of white smoke billowed up from the shattered Datsun. The explosion blew open the door on the driver’s side and Bolles flopped out onto the pavement. He was semiconscious. His legs were shattered. He was trying to get up. But Bolles could not move.

    Lifting up his head, his glasses gone, his face blackened from the blast, Bolles spoke his final words — “They finally got me—the Mafia, Emprise. Find John Adamson.”

    Bolles was working on a story about the mob using Vegas skim money to finance a robbery ring in Arizona that was stealing millions of dollars in gold from the Motorola plant in Phoenix every month.

    In a 1986 interview from death row, acclaimed journalist, Jana Bommersbach (one of our sources) asked John Adamson what story Bolles had written that led to his murder. His response was “He wasn’t killed for a story he wrote, he was killed to stop a story he was about to write.”

  • What do you get when you combine together: an insomniac, an obsession with true crime, an interest in psychology, a thirst for the answer to the question 'how and why do crimes happen', a hesitant cohost, and two Bluetooth mics? You get a podcast called Nocturnal Distractions. What else?
