If the names Billy Jensen and Paul Holes don’t stir incredible excitement inside your guts and hearts, they’re both linked to the Golden State Killer/EARONS investigation, the late Michelle Macnamara‘s book, I’ll Be Gone In The Dark, and the subsequent arrest of main suspect, Joseph James DeAngelo.
Paul Holes was the investigator and detective on the Golden State Killer case right up until his retirement, a few days before DeAngelo’s arrest was made. He was also fundamental in tracking down DeAngelo through a DNA profile uploaded to a personal genomics website and has since appeared as a guest on the comedy true crime podcast, My Favourite Murder.
Billy Jensen is a crime journalist who specialises in cold cases and has been the executive producer for True Crime Weekly ever since it first aired in 2015. He was one of Michelle MacNamara’s writing partners and completed the last couple of chapters of I’ll Be Gone In The Dark after she passed away in 2016.
The Murder Squad is due to premiere on the Exactly Right podcast network, which was launched last year by My Favourite Murder‘s Georgia Hardstark and Karen Kilgariff.
The new true crime podcast from your two fave cold case sleuths is slated to hit your preferred podcast player from April 1 and so help me GOD if this is an elaborate April Fool’s prank I am going to be VERY stroppy.
