The new podcast "Late Edition: Crime Beat Chronicles," a product of Lee Enterprises, is a collection of limited anthology style episodes exploring true stories as told by journalists from regional newspapers around America.
For this first series the program takes a short drive due east of Tulsa, Oklahoma to learn more about the state's most notorious cold case: the 1977 slaying of three Girl Scouts as documented in journalist Tim Stanley's six-part series from 2017 for the Tulsa World marking the 40th anniversary of the tragedy.
Everything on the show will be fit to print in a newspaper, but parents are cautioned to give the episode a listen before sharing this with any youngsters.
Stay tuned after the article for an insightful interview with Tim Stanley about his experiences reporting the series so many decades after the initial crime.
The Tulsa World put together a tremendous package for the series back in 2017, with new photos and archival clippings, timelines, as well as loads of other information and visuals that you can check out here:
