Episode 22 True Crime: The Murder of April Tinsley and the Exoneration of Nick Yarris


This week we discuss the murder of April Tinsley in Indiana, where Bachelor Ben Higgins is from, whose murder was solved decades later thanks to DNA technology (WARNING: This story involves the sexual assault and murder of a child).

We also discuss the murder of Linda Craig and the exoneration of Nick Yarris who spent 22 years on death row after being wrongfully convicted of Linda’s murder. Both of the Nicks get a redemption story this time around, and Megan loves that. Also, because of our recent conversation around Just Mercy, Megan felt the need to continue the conversation this week with a story of another wrongfully convicted person.

(If you want to skip the Bachelor talk, the first story starts at 16:57 and the second story starts at 1:00:44).
