"...a twisted, heartwrenching tale of family, potential wrongful conviction, and cold-blooded murder."

Keelin - Mentally? A Magpie. - Jul 8, 2021

"In just the first episode this team has brought forward excellent writing, with a delivery that is eerily peaceful. There is a fair amount of agony recounted in the 45 minute episode, yet the pacing creates a compelling picture of what could be. Due to the nature of the case, this feels more like the immensely successful Serial than what Murder in Oregon felt like. "

"Murder in Illinois is a gripping, suspenseful podcast. Those who are interested in true crime stories will especially enjoy it. Like Serial, more details are gradually revealed that makes you eager to find out the whole story. Pacheo’s (host) attention to details makes you confident that you are getting all of the available facts about the murder case."
