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?

  1. Hey guys I absolutely love your podcast you are my new favorite I was wondering if you guys could do a multi episode podcast on the west Memphis three it’s a fascinating case I would love to hear prosecutors Insights on this controversial case I know that you would be fair and balanced and really look at all of the evidence and not just watch the Paradise Lost trilogy like some podcasts do and make assumptions on a very bias documentary. Anyway thank you very much I look forward to your episodes every day and listen to them many times over


  2. Hi guys! I’m loving your podcast so far! The prosecutorial spin you put on it and your logical theories on the unsolved cases make it really interesting and sets you guys apart from other shows. I’d be interested to have you guys cover a couple Texas cases I’ve followed- Brandon Lawson from west Texas, with one of the strangest 911 calls I’ve ever heard, and Heidi Broussard (the woman abducted and killed by a female friend who wanted to steal her newborn). Thanks for all you do and keep up the great work!


  3. Well, I first want to say that I applaud the “gracious, merciful” (sarcasm) way you portrayed Mitrice’s problem that evening. I am sure Michael Peterson murdered his wife in the same “gracious, merciful” way! An owl, indeed! I guess Elizabeth Ratliffe, in Germany, was attacked by that same owl at the bottom of her staircase! As far as the Elisa Lam case, Asian women are very humble. You have to be familiar with that culture before spouting off these lame-brained deductions. They just don’t walk up the steps of a friggin water tower, take off their clothes and watch, and throw them in, then take a friggin bath! Why did she choose to travel to CA? Who was she going to meet there? There was someone, which was discussed on other sites. So, therefore, you got it wrong, AGAIN! Otherwise, good podcast.


  4. Hi guys, love your intro music, your banter, the rapport you both have and the way you discuss cases and give your theories. You are my favourite stand-out podcast, keep up the good work!
