To our loyal listeners: the festive season is upon us yet again, which means it’s time for our annual end of year message.  Case 224: Franca Viola was our final episode for 2022. We’ll be back with brand new episodes in early February, but for now the Casefile team is taking a brief break to refresh and enjoy the holidays. All of us would like to thank each and every one of you for your ongoing support. 2022 was our seventh year running, and we couldn’t have made it this far without you. There really are no words to express our gratitude for the time you take to listen and provide feedback each week. We’re very lucky to have such loyal fans.  A special thank you to all of our paid subscribers across Patreon, Apple Premium and Spotify premium. Your generous contributions go a long way in enabling us to provide the highest quality work possible.  If you’re looking for something else to listen to over the break, check out the Casefile Presents catalogue. This year we released some incredible new shows, including Matty, a 10 part series that explores the disappearance of 20-year-old Matt Leveson. There’s also the Detective’s Dilemma, which examines the moral quandary faced by the lead investigator in the murder of 22-year-old Sian O’Callaghan. Season Two of Pseudocide recently dropped, which looks into the disappearance of Patrick McDermott. These three shows are available for free exclusively on Spotify.  We also worked with the Australian Federal Police to release Crime Interrupted, a series I narrated that explores some of their biggest and most challenging cases. Crime Interrupted is available for free on all podcasting platforms. In 2023 we’ll be releasing more Casefile Presents shows, some of which have been years in the making. We’re looking forward to telling you more about them soon. In the meantime, you can stay up to date by following us on Facebook, at facebook.com/Casefile; Instagram at Casefile Podcast; and Twitter at Case_File. We’re also on TikTok. And if you’d like to help us out, we’d really appreciate you leaving a rating or review wherever you listen to Casefile.  And if you’re looking for the perfect Christmas gift for a fellow Casefile fan or amateur detective, consider the Casefile: Truth & Deception board game. It’s available to purchase online at Amazon, and at selected Argos, Smyths and Game stores in the UK, as well as Walmart in the US. Finally, the entire Casefile team would like to wish everybody happy holidays, and a safe and healthy new year.  See you in 2023!

I remember watching the TV movie about this (I Know My First Name is Steven). As well as hearing the news that he died in a motorcycle accident not long afterwards. And then what his brother had done ... goodness, that poor family.

What a brave lady. She is a hero. You never let anyone take you from the primary crime scene, and I'm willing to bet as the daughter of a law enforcement officer she knew that but she also wanted to get this man away from her kids and agreed to go to save them.
