But friends and family members of his followers questioned his unorthodox methods, and tried to stop him. From Wondery, the makers of “Dirty John,” “Dr. Death,” and “The Shrink Next Door,” comes a story about the dark side of enlightenment. Hosted by journalist Matt Stroud.

Presenting: Criminal Conduct
184
On September 2, 2010, 24-year-old Michelle O’Connell broke up with her boyfriend, St. Johns County Sheriff Deputy Jeremy Banks. Minutes later, she’s dead. The St. Johns Sheriff’s Office quickly ruled the case a suicide, without examining crucial forensic evidence or interviewing key witnesses. Other official investigations failed to gain traction. And her boyfriend Deputy Jeremy Banks was never charged and is still working as a St. Johns County Sheriff’s Deputy. Years later, an amateur sleuth named Eli Washtock winds up murdered after investigating Michelle O’Connell’s death. What did he find out?

Criminal Conduct is an investigative true-crime podcast series hosted by John Taylor and Javier Leiva. The hosts retrace the footsteps of the Eli Washtock, the slain sleuth—picking up the investigation where he left off.

Lanie & Josh discuss all things Israel Keyes, and Josh answers some listener questions.

PLUS, Josh discusses his new favorite true crime podcast: Detective Trapp
Anaheim investigator Julissa Trapp is not like other detectives. She’s the only woman on the homicide squad, and a skilled chameleon: undercover cop in vice stings, crime-scene commander, patient confidante of killers. A master interrogator, she invokes her personal experience – and deepest griefs -- as a tool to elicit confessions. When a young woman’s body is found at a trash-sorting plant, Trapp learns the murder may be linked to the disappearance of three other women in nearby Santa Ana. Trapp embarks on a dark journey that brings her face to face with a man who takes “a little piece of her soul.”
