Story 1 – Cam The Bayou Killings (No actual Bayous)
Located about 90 miles north of Little Rock Arkansas is a little area called the Illinois Bayou. It has everything that you would think a bayou would have: bogs, marshes, and a very prehistoric kind of feel. Locals, as well as visitors, flock to the area to hit the water and see what kind of goodies they can reel in but sometimes the things that they catch on the other end of the line, is something no one would expect or want. That is exactly what happened, when a couple out for a day of fishing, reeled in a ghastly sight: a body part. Authorities rush to the scene and what they would uncover would only leave more questions and unveil a hidden sect of people whose strong beliefs include anti-government but does it also include murder? This is the story of the Kehoe family.

As podcasters, we have a platform and duty to speak up and call out injustice. In light of the murder of George Floyd, we have come together in solidarity to use our platform to speak up against racial injustice and amplify the voices of black podcasters that deserve more recognition. Racism is prevalent in all industries; from the media who under-report on black victims to the justice system which routinely fails black victims. In this collaborative episode, we document black history and current events with the voices of those who have lived through it.

For this episode we bring your something new. We had the pleasure of interviewing the author Don Stradley. Don can trace is roots back to sports writing and while the books we interviewed him about talk about Boxing it is the True Crime that makes these books really stand out.
We hope tune in soon and consider purchasing both of these great books.
We will also be running a contest on Social Media two give a pair of these books away so make sure to watch our social media accounts. All Brew Crime Patreon supporters will automatically get a bonus entry.
The most recent release from author Don Stradley is a jab of boxing with an uppercut of true crime. Slaughter in the Streets has just enough of each to keep you wanting to come back for the next round. It covers a range of criminals from those that committed crimes out of necessity to hardened criminals that just wouldn’t die. With each chapter covering a new criminal/boxer that you haven’t heard of yet it is hard to put this book down.
Everyone knows that Boxing has a dark side but have you heard the story of Edwin Valero? Probably not as he is not a well known athlete outside of the boxing realm and its not a well known case of true crime either. Don Stradley takes you on a fast paced journey of the battle to be a recognized boxer from Venezuela to his fall from grace. its a story of intrigue and murder that will keep you wanting to flip the pages. I am not a big boxing fan and I can count the amount of times I have watched a boxing match on a hand or two but this book was riveting for me.

One side of the Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre was Al Capone’s gang. Here Nina gets into the history of Al Capone.
It’s February 14th 1929. People are buying last minute gifts for their significant others, maybe receiving flowers from secret admirers, or maybe… just maybe… dying in a hail of gunfire. This episode is called The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre: well at least now I don’t have to buy a gift.
We started Brew Crime off in 2018 and have had many bloopers alone the way. We thought we would start out 2019 with just a silly episode to see what it is like behind the scenes while recording. We hope you enjoy this one.
