This is a great podcast that shines a light on victims who tend to fall through the cracks and get ignored.

Really love this podcast. It's a fantastic, empathetic and very thoroughly researched series on victims that often slip through the cracks here in the south. Keep up the great work getting stories out there.

Trailer: The Victims of Samuel Little
237
In 2012, a 72-year-old man named Samuel Little was charged with three Los Angeles murders, dating back to the 1980s.  Since then, it’s become clear: he is the most prolific serial killer the United States has ever seen.   Roughly half his victims were living in the Southeast at the time of their murders, and many of those cases still need closure--either because the victims are Jane Does, or the confessions haven’t been matched to cases.  From The Fall Line comes a special limited series: The Victims of Samuel Little.   We’ll cover both the solved and unresolved Southeastern cases, and how you can help the victims still waiting for justice.  The Fall Line is created by Laurah Norton and Brooke Hargrove/Engineered and produced by Maura Currie.  Subscribe to One Strange Thing now!  Find our sponsor slinks and promo codes here.

Just a note: the host was ill during the weeks of recording. We apologize for any remaining hoarseness.

Two-part holiday release covering the story of a young man, killed in Atlanta in 1987 -- just hours after Thanksgiving day. The episodes explore far-reaching effects on his family, their history in Atlanta, and why it seemed that the suspect in the case had never been arrested or prosecuted. In Part 1, we discuss what we then believed to be the facts of the case--until new information came in 24 hours before the recording of Part 2. Be sure to listen next Wednesday to hear about what we found out.
