Design of the Week | Accused



Accused | Radio Waves

True Crime is hot right now (at least for me). In the past year I've watched Netflix's Making a Murder and Amanda Knox, as well as HBO's The Jinx. Eric introduced me to Undisclosed—a podcast that dives deeper into the world that Serial exploded. On a recent road trip with my girlfriend, Emily, we burned through four episodes of Accused: The Unsolved Murder of Elizabeth Andes

Accused is a podcast created by Amber Hunt and Amanda Rossman of the Cincinnati Enquirer covering the investigation of the unsolved murder of Elizabeth Andes. Andes' body was found in her apartment in Oxford, OH in 1978 just after her graduation from Miami University. Her boyfriend at the time, Bob, was quickly pegged as the killer. He, however, was found innocent twice, leaving behind infinite questions. 

The podcast is exceptionally interesting to me because I grew up in Butler County Ohio where the investigation takes place. Emily went to Miami University and her mother also went to Miami in the late 70s during the time of the murder. The podcast shines light on the faults of the investigation, the people involved, and the uncertain aftermath. One episode in particular explores the possibility of "random killing" and  the the patterns and signatures of serial killers. Super creepy, but extremely captivating.
