I just listened to the latest episode of "Casefile True Crime," focusing on Colleen Stan (Part 1), and I must say it was both gripping and chilling. The storytelling was incredibly detailed, providing a comprehensive overview of the case. The host's narration skillfully set the scene, and the use of interviews and archival audio added a layer of authenticity that kept me hooked throughout. The case itself is haunting, and the way it's presented underscores the complexities and intricacies involved. I appreciated how the podcast delved into the psychological aspects, shedding light on the motivations and mindsets of those involved. It's a testament to the thorough research and dedication put into crafting each episode.

This is the first episode that I just couldn't finish. I have listened to accounts of crimes that were more gruesome, but I just couldn't keep listening to this one. I ended up just looking it up on the internet to see how it was resolved.
