Description

For years, some law enforcement agencies have replaced the faces of traditional playing card decks with images of missing and murdered people and distributed those cards in prisons hoping inmates would come forward with information needed to crack these cold cases wide open.
Now, audiochuck is dealing you in.
Each week, we will be working with investigators and family members to bring you the details of some of the coldest cases from around the country in hopes that someone listening can finally bring these victims the justice they deserve.

Our card this week is Jennifer Wilson, the 9 of Diamonds from Kansas. In 2002, 29-year-old Jennifer vanished without a trace after getting into a heated argument with her live-in girlfriend. For nearly two decades, Jennifer’s disappearance has puzzled investigators, because even though they think they know who’s responsible, they’ve struggled to come up with answers to the two remaining questions in her case: what happened, and where is Jennifer? Jennifer was in her late twenties when she went missing. She was about 5’7” and 115 pounds. She had blue eyes and long brown curly hair. She wore contacts, had a broken front tooth that was repaired, and had scars on her waistline and under her chin. She normally wore baseball caps and sweatshirts. She’d be 49 years old today and would possibly be going by the name Sidney or Sydney. If you know anything about the disappearance of Jennifer Wilson, or if Brenda Leonard has ever talked to you about Jennifer’s disappearance, please call the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office at 316-660-3799 or email them at coldcase@sedgwick.gov.  To learn more about The Deck, visit www.thedeckpodcast.com.
Our card this week is Timothy Blair, the 5 of Clubs from Kentucky.When 19-year-old Timothy Blair’s body was found on the side of road in 2005, investigators launched into action to find his killer, but their investigation quickly turned cold despite the discovery of DNA evidence and the cooperation of his family. Seventeen years later, Timothy’s mother persists in her search for justice despite the investigation being put on hold and overshadowed by a whirlwind of rumors that have only led to dead ends. If you have any information about Timothy Blair’s murder in 2005, you can call the Louisville Metro Police Department’s anonymous tip line at 502-574-5673 or you can submit an anonymous tip HERE.  To learn more about The Deck, visit www.thedeckpodcast.com.

Willie’s senseless death has puzzled investigators for years as they’ve struggled to find anyone who might’ve had it out for him, leaving them with one nagging question: was Willie the intended target? If you have any information about Willie’s murder in 2017, please call Sgt.

polygraph test DO NOT detect if you're being deceptive or not. it only shows your stress level. no difference than a stress test period. NEVER TAKE A POLYGRAPH TEST EVEN IF YOU'RE INNOCENT

All cops ( in my personal experience) suck! I don't trust cops out here in Louisiana! it's a damn shame that the ones who are supposed to protect and serve don't do that! I mean they take an oath and all and in my personal experience they have not done anything they should have done to protect and serve me when I needed it most!

We shouldn't even waste tax payers money on crimes like this if they can't even cooperate with police. These animals don't value life, just listen to the lyrics that shape their life. What gang member makes threats on FB? Lost cause, all of them.

Guy has 6 kids and the women in his life were proud because he knew how to buy groceries. Accountability is lacking in that culture. No one will speak to cops no one says anything about having so many kids out of wedlock. All of those kids were gonna struggle with or without their dad and now 2 don't have any parents. Sad

CERVANTES = Sur von tays... Ugh it's Jakweese (Jacques) all over again. Google how to. Pronounce and it will say it for you if you are unsure. It's so hard to listen sometimes when podcasts just say something wrong over and over.

Her uncle? She trusted him right? And since when do you need a motive to kill someone? So I wouldn’t rule anyone out. But that’s just me.
