Can't argue with any of those. Sherri Rasmussen is my go-to one when someone asks me to recommend an episode. When he says 'They just disarmed Stephanie' ... right before they take her into the interview room ... so intense.

I'd also add Jennifer Pan to my list of 'favourites'.

I don't feel like they are quite as good anymore. Few too many episodes where I work out by about half way through that there isn't going to be any resolution and there is still like 40 minutes to go.

I feel the same way. Slightly too many episodes that are formulaic - the guilty party is either overwhelmingly obvious at the start or you notice a lot of seemingly irrelevant details being thrown in which usually means the case is unsolved and the writers were looking to pad the episode.

Some of the most recent ones (Beverly McGowan, Yosemite etc.) were getting back to the good format where there's an element of mystery before they start honing in on the actual suspect. Although if I had one complaint about Yosemite it would be that I would've enjoyed it more if all the comments on the related episode they did earlier in the year didn't spoil it by going "I can't believe they covered [topic] without mentioning [subject of Yosemite]!" but that's obviously not the host's fault

Thought this week's episode, Cindy james, was excellent. The best one in a while.

Seemed to be heading down a familiar path with the psycho ex etc, but took some twists in the second half. I thought the phone call to Roy sounded like a woman's voice.

An amazing ep! It seemed it was going the usual way for a while, then BAM!

I agree with your last sentence. Was chilling all the same.

Nicholas Barclay case was good too. Last half of last year I was feeling they were a bit bland, but started this years series very strong with 2 well presented cases. I've put them on whilst my wife and I renovate and she enjoys, but I've predicted both the last 2 outcomes within 15-20 minutes.. Not sure if it's because I'm familiar with their story-telling/presentation, but I picked Cindy from a long way out, and same with Nicholas. I think if you're familiar with the formula you get the bits he says or doesn't say that lead you to an early conclusion.

Next weekend I'm gonna hit the wife with the Jim Jones episodes, while catering the Kool-Aid for refreshments.

Can Cindy really be ‘picked’ though? While there’s quite a bit that points to her, I’m trying to remain open minded on that one. There was just a few strange things that happened that make no sense if it was indeed Cindy.

A hell of a lot of being found with drugs in her system, sometimes the same drugs she was prescribed, and/or hoarding. Along with stockings around her throat just close to the level of suffocation but not quite enough... Michael Hutchence? We obviously don't know for sure, but either way, hers is a tragically sad life the way it ended up.

Yeah no doubt a lot points to that. The guy who just ran off keeps making me wonder though.

I actually kind of hope it was all her as the alternative is absolutely terrifying considering how quickly everyone dismissed it all.

I gotta say this site was absolutely robbed in the most recent episode. Not listed as a source at all when we have pretty much every detail and one of the most regular contributors is literally the brother of one of the victims

Finished the Nicholas Barclay one today. Man was that a sad story.

Can’t help but think the Mum and older brother know/knew something. The con man must have thought he hit the jackpot when the family just so willingly accepted it was him.

Been very late in getting onto Casefile, but listened to a few episodes now.

Daniel Morcombe - great episode, loved the audio clip and how they caught the perpetrator, amazing police work, very sad case however.
Beverly McGowan - wow, bizarre story, can't believe I hadn't heard of it before, still so many unanswered questions.
Mark and John - another bizarre story, couldn't really believe what I was hearing.

Favourite is probably the Silk Road series, incredibly well told story.

Looking forward to listening to the rest.

Sherri Rasmussen are also both good Casefile episodes because they’ve used real audio recordings.

The latest episode is on The Family. Alan Barnes' brother John has been posting in the thread on Big Footy for ages and has given heaps of insider information
Yeah half way through this one. I have only skipped around the thread here on it. Ill have to go back and read Johns stuff.
Never realised just how brutual these murders were.

yeah listening to both also, love the episodes with the interrogation audio, there's a Youtube channel called 'JCS - Criminal Psychology' which covers both these cases and more with the interrogation footage too.

The Family one was ‘ok’. I think because I’d already known so much about this case I found this one less intriguing.
