1. Welcome to The Prosecutors

Hello everyone. It’s Brett and Alice, and we are so glad to have you along this crazy ride with us. We’re going to be talking about some of the most famous cold cases of all time, bringing our experience as prosecutors to bear on our favorite mysteries. But before we do that, we wanted to introduce ourselves to all of you.

In this episode, we tell a little bit about ourselves, and we set out the rules we are going to do our best to stick to during our investigation. Here they are, our ten commandments of sorts.

  1. The simplest answer is the most likely to be correct.
  2. If there is no evidence of a crime, there probably wasn’t a crime.
  3. Usually, law enforcement can be trusted.
  4. Conspiracies are hard to pull off and even harder to keep secret.
  5. Do not mistake incompetence for malice.
  6. There will never be a theory that answers all the questions or addresses all the evidence.
  7. We never know all the facts.
  8. The most obvious suspect is usually the one who did it.
  9. People lie, but that doesn’t make them liars.
  10. BUT in extraordinary cases, expect the extraordinary. Cause what’s the point of rules if you can’t break them?
