Thanks for the welcome! My name is Mike Morford AKA Morf
I am excited to be working with the Websleuth community to tackle some really perplexing mysteries.
Starting off with the Dermond case set the bar high because it's so bizarre.
I am hoping we can get some sleuths from here joining us live to record our episodes for each case we do. We work alongside you live for each episode. If you have not listened to episode 1, I hope you will.
We need all the sleuths we can get. If you have joined us live let us know what you think of the process.
We will be recording EP2 live on 6/28 at 9PM Eastern, and I will put instructions up here of how/when to join us.
And if you will, please help the show grow and reach new people by rating and reviewing it where ever you listen to your podcasts. We look forward to sleuthing some cases together with you on Citizen Detective

We also take case suggestions, so if you are passionate about certain cases, let us know.
On our show, we talk to people connected to the cases- family members, witnesses, investigators, experts- if you have case suggestions where we have guests willing to come on, please, we are all ears!

Hello,

The following case means a lot due an 11 year old girl was raped and murdered in her own home while her two brothers and father were home with 12 party attendees. This case botched so bad. I have include the following links:


Local law enforcement seems to have dragged their feet in pursuing additional DNA testing especially, familial DNA or Genealogy DNA testing. Sampson County DSS failed to follow up on the home life of this child. I actually acquired the investigative autopsy report on this child's death.

Crowdsourcing - the modern version of shoe detective.
Doesn't sound optimistic

"In the sheriff's last update on the case, he said there were no fingerprints, foreign DNA or eye-witnesses. Hundreds of people were interviewed but investigators came up short.
"What we need more than anything is for someone to call us and tell us who is responsible for this savagery," he said Friday."

If they have any DNA at all, othram can solve it.

We use the term 'Crowd solving' - where people with different ideas, and outlooks come from different experiences and lives and cam look at the same case through different eyes. That's how we want to look at the cases- from every possible angle

Hello Morf!
We know you are a longtime member of Websleuths, AND a renown true crime podcaster wit’s several active shows at any given time. I have a feeling you must not require much sleep to be able to do all you do, including launch a NEW and unique podcast. In your spare time LOL, could you answer a few questions about this exciting project that you have invited Websleuthers to be a part of?

1)how do you envision everyday people like US here taking part in your project?

2)when you mentioned folks possibly joining in a live taping of Citizen Detectives, what would that look like?

3)how long have you been been thinking of a podcast that could make use of crowd-solving?

4)are there particular types of cases you would like to concentrate on for Citizen Detective?

5)how frequently will you be dropping new episodes?

I very much enjoyed the first episode on the Dermond murders in Georgia. That case has stymied us for years. It is just so shocking that these dear folks were in their golden years enjoying retirement and the fruits of their labors, yet suffered such a brutal and tragic end.
I also enjoyed “The Scrum”, which gives listeners a peek behind the scenes of your broadcast. That was fun! I know that was just a taste of what patrons can look forward to, and it got me hooked.

Thanks for being here and inviting us fellow websleuthers to join in on this endeavor. We are ready, able and enthusiastic about pitching in.

Faithfully,
coco

1- I envision a place and platform for people of various backgrounds, life experiences, and world views to come together to look at a case from various angles and as a team, come up with ideas and ways to move the case forward.

2-It's simple, they would tune in on Youtube, Twitch, in our Facebook group (or here if you could set it up) and interact with us live in real time. They can share comments, leave voice mails, etc

3- It's been something I have been interested in for a long time, but finally came together with the right team of people and found the right format to make it happen

4- We'd like to focus on a wide variety of cases that need attention, and fresh eyes- cases that may benefit from crowd solving


5-New episodes are recorded live alongside our citizen detectives every other week, usually Tuesdays at 9PM Eastern(although that day will occasionally switch) and then a cleaned up polished version of that recording is published the following Saturday- so an every other week show. If it takes off and does well, and there is a demand for it, I could see it going weekly at some point
