Cutthroat Inc.

Cutthroat Inc.

Two young men, living the good life -- surrounding themselves with all the trappings of wealth and success. But their sun-kissed California lives are darkened by greed, paranoia and accusations of wrongdoing. What seemed to be paradise is tainted by mistrust and, ultimately, violence -- concealed for months by a convincing web of lies -- until a few determined investigators and a worried family unravel them to reveal a stunning story of deception. Hosted by Matt Gutman.

    Bone Valley is a 9-episode true crime podcast. New episodes are available for free every Wednesday. In 1987, 18-year-old Michelle Schofield was found dead in a phosphate pit in Florida. Two years later, her husband Leo was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Fifteen years later, previously unidentified fingerprints matched Jeremy Scott--a violent teenager who lived nearby. Jeremy has since confessed to Michelle’s murder. Yet Leo Schofield remains behind bars. In this groundbreaking podcast, Bone Valley host Gilbert King uncovers startling new evidence that Jeremy is responsible for a string of murders. King is the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Devil in the Grove, which led to the exonerations of four innocent men.
