Our card this week is Jenny Lin, the Queen of Hearts from California. In 1994, the brutal murder of a 14-year-old inside her parents' safe suburban house left a community shaken to its core, because not only had a bright and talented life been suddenly snuffed out, but police struggled to find a motive.

Our card this week is Owachige Osceola (8 of Diamonds, Oklahoma) Recently divorced and living on her own in a new city, 27-year-old Owachige Osceola’s life was in a season of transition before she was killed in the bedroom of her Norman, Oklahoma apartment in September 2013. While the medical examiner who performed her autopsy concluded her cause and manner of death were “undetermined,” a detective who remains on the case today insists a killer has been allowed to walk free for nearly a decade. Please join us in writing a letter to the Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office calling for a formal independent review of the methodology used during Owachige’s autopsy. Below you will find a prompt you can use and the address to send the letter to. (WHERE TO SEND)Mr. John O'ConnorOklahoma Attorney General's Office313 NE 21st StreetOklahoma City, OK 73105eric.pfeifer@ocme.ok.gov To Whom It May Concern:I'm writing in regard to the criminal investigation related to the mysterious death of Ms. Owachige Osceola in September 2013, which is being conducted by the Norman Police Department.As you may be aware, Ms. Osceola's cause and manner of death were classified by the Oklahoma Office of the Chief Medical Examiner as "undetermined" despite credible evidence that she was intentionally strangled to death in the bedroom of her apartment.After hearing concerns expressed by Norman Police Department investigators working this case and closely listening to details about the criminal investigation into her death as reported by Audiochuck Podcast Network's "The Deck," I'm deeply troubled that the medical examiner's office has been unwilling to reconsider its original ruling — directly hindering further investigative efforts to pursue justice for Ms. Osceola and her loved ones.I implore the Oklahoma Attorney General's Office to reexamine evidence in this case and to insist that the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner consider that Ms. Osceola's death was the result of a homicidal act. I also kindly request that this office publicly publish its conclusions in the matter.Respectfully,[YOUR FIRST & LAST NAME]  To learn more about The Deck, visit www.thedeckpodcast.com.

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.

so do they just immediately give the uncle a pass because he's the one that reported her that he dropped her off because how do we know that? how do we know he actually did drop her off at the bus station since there wasn't surveillance how do we know he wasn't molesting her or something and killed her to get away with it. like how many years went by in the Arliss Perry case because they believed the security guard when he said he found her naked and killed in the church with a candle penetrating her and they just believed him and spent decades looking for someone else. like just because a person calls in a crime doesn't make them innocent I think we've had enough child murders and spousal murders to know that's not true like oh my God I just found my husband dead and then you shot him. so I'm just curious why there's no mention of did they polygraph the uncle did they verify cuz I don't know if I would ever as a woman go visit my uncle I would go visit my aunt and uncle but I don't think I would ever be inclined to go hang out with my uncle alone with my child

it's amazing that her father is able to admit she made some bad decisions it must be really hard for a family of the victim to see that their loved one wasn't perfect and could have died because of it. So terrible no one deserves this the victim and the family

I just wonder if the cops checked the bar she was at? Did anyone try to make advances towards her and got rejected so they got upset. why was she alone at that time if she was out with friends, why did the let her walk home by herself.

it looks like whomever was driving the car stopped to say something to her but she kept on walking that's why the car backed up and then they shot her and fled the scene

To everyone criticizing her, there is only so much information available to the public on these cold cases. There's only so much different podcasters can do. The most important thing about this podcast is that it is more coverage on these cases! I love the show. Please keep it up!
