On November 17, 2015, Jennifer Rosenbaum called 911 stating her two year old foster child Laila Daniel had choked on a chicken nugget. During the call, she expressed concern that she was performing the Heimlich Maneuver and CPR incorrectly, fearing she might be inadvertently injuring the child. Once the toddler arrived at the ER, her body told a far different story than what Jennifer Rosenbaum had been claiming all along.

Episode 1:  Felony Friday - Motherly Love

In a case that captivated the entire nation, an 18-year old newly widowed Oklahoma mother’s home was invaded on New Years Eve in late 2011. Her husband had just tragically died from cancer on Christmas Day, and she was left alone with their 3 month old son. When the door finally burst and her attacker looked her in the eyes - it was at that moment that he knew, there is nothing more dangerous than a new mother looking over her newborn child.

The Bloody Truth
01:02:18

18-year-old Michelle Martinko was found brutally murdered in her family’s Buick Electra in the new Westdale Mall parking lot in December of 1979. When good old fashioned police work wasn’t enough to solve the case, it eventually went cold. Until 39 years later - when forensic sciences had sufficiently evolved and a newly assigned investigator brought a fresh perspective, and an innovative idea to the table.

Obsession
01:13:18

On September 2, 2015, 35 year old pediatric dentist Dr. Kendra Hatcher was tragically murdered in the parking garage of her luxury apartment building in Dallas, Texas. At first glance, police believed it to be a random act of violence or a robbery gone awry.  But Dr. Hatcher was scheduled to leave the very next day on a romantic vacation with her new boyfriend, Dr. Ricardo Paniagua.  As the truth slowly began to unravel, the details of a sinister plan fed by the greed, envy, and obsession of a former scorned lover were eventually revealed.

This is America
53:10

46-year-old Houston native George Floyd’s tragic death at the hands of four Minneapolis police officers galvanized a worldwide movement to end police brutality against Black men and communities of color. His frantic last moments were captured by a passing 17-year-old high school student, and were subsequently broadcast around the entire world. Former MPD Officer Derek Chauvin delicately balanced his knee upon George Floyd’s neck for 8 minutes and 46 horrifying seconds, until his heart stopped beating. Floyd’s murder has confronted every American with a vitally important and timely question: Do Black lives really matter?

A Deal with the Devil
01:08:31

29-year-old Kelsey Berreth fell in love with a Colorado Rancher through an online Christian dating site. After giving up on her dreams in Washington and moving to rural Teller County, CO to be nearer Patrick Frazee, the two quickly became parents after an unplanned pregnancy. But no matter how much Kelsey longed for love and a future with Patrick - he had other women and refused to commit. On Thanksgiving Day of 2018, Kelsey mysteriously vanished after a trip to a local grocery store… but the story was infinitely more complex than police were prepared for, until the Teller County District Attorney made a proverbial deal with the devil that blew the case wide open.

Atlanta's Missing and Murdered Children
01:01:54

Wayne Williams was convicted of the murders of two young adults in 1982, supposedly bringing an end to the reign of terror of the “Atlanta Monster.” But the cases of at least 27 other missing or murdered African American children were abruptly closed in the aftermath of his conviction, leaving the surviving families with little peace, and no semblance of closure. We spoke with three of the Directors of HBO’s new series, “Atlanta’s Missing and Murdered: The Lost Children” - about their experience creating the new groundbreaking series, and what new light they hope to shed on the now 40-year-old cases. Their investigation uncovered shocking details of evidence tampering, perjury, and widespread cover-up at the highest levels of government and law enforcement. 

Special thanks to award-winning Directors Sam Pollard, Maro Chermayeff, and Joshua Bennett for participating in this episode.

48-year old Dana Wilkes mysteriously vanished from Chattanooga, Tennessee the evening of Friday, November 9th - 2012.  A concerned family friend who was the last person to see her alive, turned out to have a dark past, and was hiding an even darker secret. A secret that police wouldn’t piece together until Dana’s badly mutilated body turned up two weeks later, in a spot eerily reminiscent of an unsolved 2002 homicide.

Justice for DJ
01:23:52

A suicide is frantically called into 911 from a rural trailer in Flintstone, Georgia in October of 2016. 27-year old Donald “DJ” Fickey, Jr. is dead, the result of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. But as DJ’s immediate family begins piecing together the last moments of his life - they quickly realize his death was no suicide. A Private Investigator soon joins their quest for justice, and his investigation quickly reveals a tangled web of systemic negligence, bias, and a coordinated cover up among the primary witnesses. The key to cracking the case wide open remains untested and locked away in a police evidence room to this day. 

A special thank you to DJ's older sister Amanda Shirley and Private Investigator Eric Echols (TFP Company, LLC) for their participation and contributions to this episode.

Nothing Like Her Own
50:42
A Dallas Police Officer shoots and kills an intruder in her apartment after returning home from a 14-hour shift. In the moments immediately following the interaction - the officer realizes she made a terrible mistake. She accidentally entered the home of a 29-year old Accountant on the floor directly above her apartment, and killed him in cold blood. But things are not quite what they seem, and it appears there may be a deeper vein of prejudice running through the Dallas Police Department than anyone was previously aware.  Direct: https://www.himalaya.com/choir  Support Us:  https://www.patreon.com/InvisibleChoir  Website:  https://www.invisiblechoir.com/  Promo: https://www.murderintherain.com/ Written/Audio Sources:  The exhaustive list of sources is too long to include in the episode description. Please visit www.invisiblechoir.com to view the entire list of written, audio, video, and other sources utilized in the recording and production of this episode.  Music & Sound Effect Sources  All music and sound effects used with express permission under unlimited blanket license authority from Epidemic Sound ®. Individual sources are available via request at info@invisiblechoir.com  CLUE: 4

Justice for Jessica
40:26

The nearly unidentifiable remains of an 18-year old woman are found burning behind a middle school in Mayfield, KY in 2000. The lead investigator fumbles the crime scene, ignoring vital clues and eventually focusing exclusively on one primary suspect. A judge ultimately dismissed the case, condemning the police work as problematic from the start. Justice seemed out of reach - until an amateur detective set up a Myspace tribute page and hit the streets herself to track down the real suspect.

Addicted to Love
55:53

What would you do for love? Some would lie. Others would fight. Few would steal $200,000 and kill a family of three… but one man did.  And he did it all for an internet webcam model that he had never met in real life. A stunning case of internet pornography addiction turns deadly when one man’s lustful desires evolved into misguided delusions of love.

The Spiderweb
53:37

A father reports his adopted daughter missing in the early morning hours of October 7th, 2017 in Richardson, Texas. But the story doesn’t add up. And before long, local police and the FBI suspect there is more to Sherin Susan Mathews’ disappearance than her father is letting on.  If not for a diligent spider spinning a web in front of a motion activated security camera, she might well have disappeared forever.

The Boy in the Cupboard
32:38

In what some have called the worst case of child abuse in Los Angeles County history, 8-year-old Gabriel Fernandez suffered prolonged torture at the very hands of those entrusted to protect him.  Early reports alleged his death was accidental.  But the investigation would quickly reveal a much darker, more evil series of events that would ultimately shake the cracked foundation of the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services to its core.  A BB gun, a belt, and a small cupboard were just the beginning of Gabriel’s proverbial house of horrors.

February 4th, 2010 left one family’s lives forever mysteriously frozen in time inside of their Fallbrook, CA home.

Four days later their vehicle was found abandoned near the U.S./Mexico border - but the case went cold for nearly four years until their bodies were discovered buried in a shallow grave in the harsh Mojave desertscape near Victorville, CA. Police were ultimately left wondering if Joseph McStay's partner in business eventually turned into a partner in crime

Cruise Control

After experiencing a painful childhood, Timothy Jones, Jr. had always dreamed of creating the perfect family. But sometimes dreams become nightmares. This once loving husband and father of five felt his family slipping away under his oppressively literal interpretation of scripture. Where some men choose love, he chose control. Where some exhibit patience - he devolved into pure unadulterated rage. Where some choose life, he inflicted death – upon those, his most vulnerable godly seeds.
