Eighteen year old Anita Knutson had just completed her freshman semester at Minot State University in North Dakota. Living in an apartment with a roommate, Anita was working two jobs and excited about summer break.

However, over the first weekend in June of 2007, Anita's family couldn't get in touch with her which was extremely out of character. After several attempts, Anita's father Gordon made the one hour drive to check on her. There he would make a horrifying discovery.

Anita had been murdered, that much was clear, but who could have been responsible was a far more complex question involving a sordid cast of characters from a guy with an unrequited crush, a contentious roommate, the maintenance man, a group of construction workers and others.
Despite being in possession of both DNA and fingerprints, police have yet to name an official suspect and while the case grows cold, a grieving family and frustrated community have begun to wonder if justice will ever be served.

The Santa Rosa Hitchhiker Murders (Part Five)
Between 1972 and 1973, at least seven women were murdered in California's Sonoma County. The discovery of three bodies in July of 1979 - after years of inactivity in this case - would bring about a new wave of speculation in the press. Despite investigators hoping that these discoveries could help provide answers for the numerous unsolved cases, all they did was end up creating even more questions. In the decades since, investigators have pondered whether this case could be connected to some of the most infamous names in all of true crime, Ted Bundy and the Zodiac among them. But nearly half-a-century later, all of these murders remain unsolved...

84: April Millsap
Armada is a quaint and quiet village in Macomb County, Michigan, with less than two thousand residents. It’s most known for its country fair as well as the Halloween festival aptly named Armada-Geddon. In 2019, it was named the nicest place to live in Michigan. It’s the kind of area where people typically leave their doors unlocked and murder is something you hear about in the newspapers for big cities. But then one warm summer night, a tragedy took place along a picturesque recreational trail which would cause irreversible damage to the community. In the aftermath, the community bounded together to ensure that justice would be served. SPONSORS - YARN: Thank you to YARN for sponsoring this episode!

Nothing to Lose (Part Two)
(Part 2/2) 18-year-old Corona, CA high school baseball prospect Brandon Willie Martin was signed by the Tampa Bay Rays in the 2011 Major League draft. His talent and incredible promise was worth an estimated $860,000 cash signing bonus. But after signing the contract, renting a posh 6,700 square foot mansion, and hosting massive alcohol and drug fueled parties - something changed in Brandon. Over the next four years he would lose everything - including his freedom, after he was released early from an involuntary 72-hour emergency psychiatric hold.
