Morwell True Crime

In the Morwell History episode, we explored the agriculture sector, so I continued the theme in the Morwell True Crime episode.  I thought I’d check out the crimes in the agricultural field. I thought I’d just find more dirty slaughter yards and stolen horses. Well…. well, well

Once we sampled those crimes then moved on to more serious crimes, murder, public indecency or sexual assault, and child abuse.

True crime podcasts or episodes usually focus on just murders and missing people but that’s not all there is in the field of crimes. Haunted Hills started out exploring a theory that criminals kept the legend going to give them space to keep on distilling illegally, making illegal coins. It shares a little about the small towns, as Robert Kennedy once said “Every Society gets the kind of criminal it deserves. What is equally true is that every community gets the kind of law enforcement it insists on.”
