About The Podcast
Near the end of 2020, after wasting away during quarantine for a few months, Sarah asked Grace if she would like to start a podcast. I mean, all we've been doing is listening to them... so why not create one ourselves? So we put some feelers out to see if anyone else would be interested in our endeavor. All we knew at the time was that we wanted to do something within the genre of true crime. We were soon joined by Amanda and Chelsea. We decided on a focus and name and released our first episode in March 2021. It was tough to find our footing at first, a lot more goes into producing a podcast than any of us had anticipated, and of course we had decided to pick a focus that brings up a LOT of emotions, but eventually we found our flow, went through a few team changes and here we are today! Thank you so much to everyone who had supported us along the way!

Shannon is a Delco native who has been living in Chester County for almost 20 years. She first got into true crime on a road trip with her husband when they stumbled upon a podcast about the West Memphis 3. From then on she was obsessed and continued to seek out additional true crime podcasts. She is looking forward to being on the other side of a podcast, as a part of the research and helping to put more information out there in order to hopefully provide answers and closure for the families and loved ones of the victims in these cases.
Melanie lives in Harleysville with her husband and 2 children. She works at Nationwide Insurance as Business Insights Consultant (so you KNOW she’s great at research) and she’s been in the industry for about 20 years. She is also active in local and state campaigns. Like the rest of us she’s heavy into crime docs and shows and is particularly interested in cold cases and would like to bring justice and closure for grieving families, especially those in underserved communities.

Born and raised in Gilbertsville, and a graduate of Boyertown HS. Moved to the Lehigh Valley after college and started my true-crime career in 2003 as an Associate Producer with TruTV's Forensic Files. Went on to become Production Coordinator (booking crews) while maintaining my AP role. When Forensic Files was canceled, I started working remotely as a researcher for Investigation Discovery's Nightmare Next Door. That's where I got my first opportunity to become a producer. I went on to work on such shows as Deadly Affairs (I.D.), For My Man (TV One), For My Woman (TV One), The Face of Evil (I.D.), Cold Case Files (A&E/Hulu), City Confidential (A&E), as well as the 2-hour I.D. special, "The Lost Boys of Bucks County."
Now, I'm back in the area, living in Royersford with my wife, two children, and two step-children. When I'm not working, I enjoy cooking, playing guitar, sports, woodworking, riding motorcycles, and spending time with my family.
