What Happens in the Woods

What Happens in the Woods

We're just your average couple, living normal lives, who happen to be obsessed with everything related to true crime. Shortly after relocating to the great Pacific Northwest, we realized there were stories upon gruesome stories to be told from this region. And we want nothing more than to share them with you. So come join us every first and third Friday of the month as we take a deep look into the dark and twisted. It isn't for the feint of heart, but we promise it will be worth it. And remember...what happens in the woods, stays in the woods.

DNA has been a marvelous tool in forensic science for around 20 years now. It has helped solve cold cases, long thought to be unsolvable. Used to fight wrongful convictions where there was little hope of the truth ever surfacing. But it has also been used to point to guilty people who hope to escape the criminal system.

One of the true crime’s most well-known Detectives, Robert Keppel, who is known for his contributions to Ted Bundy...

We have covered a lot of cases over the past few seasons that have left us scratching our heads and with little trust in the justice system. This one is no different.


When Steve Titus was pulled over by police after a night out with his fiance, he fully cooperated with them, never thinking it would come back later and ruin his life. Just 2 short days later, he was in custody and facing sexual assault charges. He maintained his innoc...

Every February, in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, we celebrate Black History Month. Since 1969, the US has observed this to some degree or another to spread education about the African-American Community. It hasn’t always been met with enthusiasm, but it continued to grow in momentum and still does to this day. In recent years, it has become even more important as the right to freedom and equality carries on.

Our topic of discussion this episode is one that is a tough subject to cover. Rape is a horrific crime, that can happen to anyone. It leaves very long lasting effects upon its victims.

From the years 1978 to 1981 women in Spokane were being terrorized by a rapist who was held unchecked. The media didn’t report it until well after a year of the crimes beginning. The police didn’t have the funding, the manpower or the resources to ha...

In this episode, we touch on this subject while discussing the suspected nomadic serial killer, Charles T. Sinclair. After his capture in 1990, his family was broken and at loose ends. The man they had known as a loving father and husb...
