Leola Shreves - 546

January 2013, Yuba City, CA. In a small town north of Sacramento, CA, 94-year old Leola Shreves was found dead in her home by her son-in-law. Windows were broken and Leola had been badly beaten. After only a few months, police arrested and obtained a confession from Leola’s neighbor, Michael Alexander. Ultimately the charges against Alexander were dropped after DNA evidence vindicated him from the false confession. Six years after Leola’s death, familial DNA tracing led to the arrest and conviction of Armando Cuadras.

Listen Now: Ghost Story

Tristan Redman is a journalist who doesn’t believe in ghosts. But weird things happened in his teenage bedroom – weirder than normal. When, years later, he discovers subsequent occupants of his family home were haunted by the ghost of a faceless woman, he’s curious. Because by a strange coincidence, it just so happens that the house Tristan grew up in is right next door to a murder scene - where his wife’s great grandmother was killed by two gunshots to the face.

Grant Solomon - 539

On July 20, 2020, Grant Solomon was struck by his own truck and killed. The only witness to Grant’s death was his father, Aaron Solomon. Some in the family say that Aaron was abusive and that the abuse was ignored or not taken seriously by members of their church, school, and community. Because of this, Grant was hopeful that after turning 18, he’d be able to get custody of his sister Gracie. This would protect her from their father’s alleged sexual, psychological, emotional, and physical abuse. Grant's sudden death prevented this. Was Grant’s death a tragic accident, or was this Aaron’s last chance at keeping his family under control?
