  • Maggie Freleng is one badass journalist. As a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and producer, she gravitates toward telling the stories of underdogs – specifically the wrongfully convicted. So, when she heard about the 1999 murder of Yvonne Lane – a young mother from a the small town of Alliance, Ohio – and her ex-boyfriend who was blamed for the crime but had maintained his innocence for over a decade, Maggie started digging. And what she’d learn along the way in this investigation would test her mind, heart, and stamina in ways no one saw coming.

    This episode is part of a ten-part series called Let The Women Do The Work. Join host Gillian Pensavalle as she follows the stories of ten dynamic, inspiring, badass women in true crime.

  • August 11th, 2012 was a murky night for many in the town of Steubenville, Ohio as local high school students scattered themselves among a handful of parties that took a turn for the worse. A 16-yr-old girl – who would come to be known as Jane Doe – was repeatedly sexually assaulted at the hands of football players and bystanders alike, and it would take an outsider to follow the digital footprints and piece together that night as well as the wider web of rape culture in the town’s social hierarchy. Here’s how crime blogger and legal advocate Alexandria Goddard turned this story into a necessary storm.

  • In the early 1990s, fear and rumor swirled through New York’s LGBTQ community about a serial killer who targeted inebriated men leaving the city’s gay bars late at night. Their bodies, or rather body parts, were found wrapped in garbage bags and dumped at highway rest stops, far from the urban environs where they were last seen. Dubbed “The Last Call Killer,” it would take authorities almost an entire decade to stop him.

  • Lise Lotte-Lublin didn’t recall being sexually assaulted until 20 years after the fact while watching an interview with a famous model whose story seemed familiar. When she went to authorities only to learn nothing could be done, she decided to take the law into her own hands. She went on to change three sex crimes laws in her home state of Nevada, including the statute of limitations. She helped fellow survivors in other states do the same. And then, she testified before the man that she says attacked her all those years ago: Bill Cosby.

When Anna unexpectedly got out on parole ahead of the others, she had no choice but to lead the fight for their innocence. Now, she’s dedicated her life to preventing similar stories from happening.

  • Gemma Hoskins remembers high school fondly, thanks in large part to her favorite teacher Sister Cathy Cesnik. So, when the beloved nun disappeared one November night in 1969 only to eventually be discovered dead in the woods, grief took hold over this ambiguous story for decades. And then, truth-telling around abuse in those hallowed halls merged with Gemma’s outstanding questions. 40 years after the murder, she got to work with the help of a former classmate of hers, and together they’d uncover more about the past than anyone expected.

  • On a cold day in 1983, a plumber was called to an apartment building in the Cranley Gardens neighborhood of North London. The building drains were clogged. And when he climbed down into plumbing "man hole" he saw what was causing the blockage: human flesh and bone. What followed was essentially an elaborate confession by one of the building's tenants: Dennis Nilsen who explained to the police that he had murdered and dismembered at least 12 men and boys and disposed of them both UNDER HIS FLOORBOARDS AND DOWN THE DRAINS. How is it possible that at least 12 people could vanish and be murdered and nobody noticed?
