Description

In a coroner’s report, the word “undetermined” is used to describe the cause or manner of death when there’s insufficient evidence to lend a more specific classification. In 2019, Jessica Easterly Durning went missing from her New Orleans home; her body was found days later, just two and a half blocks away. Her death was classified as undetermined, but due to evidence of foul play, her friends and family believe someone played a role in her suspicious disappearance. Investigative journalist Jessica Noll and former Detective Todd McComas dig deep into this unsolved case and search for answers to Jessica’s untimely death. From the team that brought you ‘To Live and Die in LA’ and ‘Culpable’, this is ‘Undetermined’.

The background music is so loud behind the police recordings. It makes it difficult to listen to. Otherwise, I'm enjoying this podcast but it would be a good idea to remaster the audio.

Why do journalists all speak with that “voice”? Can’t they just speak normally? They all sound like they’re in front of a camera doing the nightly news.

These cops are ignorant. First of all it's Deposition not disposition. Second all the power is in your hands. They don't want to investigate. Which is heartbreaking for the family of Jessica.

why is 1/3 of the episode recapping the previous one... id suggest that you utilize the platform available by flooding it with vital information rather than worrying about catching people up. we clearly understand if we missed something we can stop and go back to previous episodes.

this shows you how the opinion of an officer can seriously influence the direction of an investigation. This officer is personal opinions are all over the first few minutes. This is why having women detectives is dangerous because she's being emotional and throwing her opinion all over
