 – Confusion about the composite sketch is discussed, as well as conspiracy ideas around this case.

 – Also, an interesting story I was told by the son of a first responding officer.

Season 2: Episode 3 – First Responders

Knowledge will forever govern ignorance, and a people who mean to be their own governors, must arm themselves with the power knowledge gives. A popular government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a prologue to a farce, or a tragedy, or perhaps both.” Ray v Turner, supra, p 304, fn 10 (Wright, J., concurring)

In this episode is an interview with one of the EMTs who responded to Gambles that day, as well as my city council appearance to get previously unreleased police reports from Reed City Police department.

Next week, Episode 4 – Buckboard Bar Assault, Prop B, & Tensions in Law Enforcement, will build upon what you learn in this episode so that you have a basic understanding of the related issues before we get to the suspects and persons of interest in the following episode. All of this backstory is important to your understanding of Janette’s case, and why it may be where it is today, which is what my podcast specifically focuses on –understanding why each individual case goes cold.

Season 2: Episode 1 – The Basement

Janette Roberson was murdered in the basement pet department of the Gambles store downtown Reed City, Michigan in 1983.

In the coming season, I will go over what we know about that day, take a look at the people that police treated as suspects, and what may have been going on in the community at the time that could be related to the case going cold.

Episode 1 : “That woman is laying in there dying!”

Robert Elton Waldron was interviewed twice on the day his wife was shot. The first interview was brief, and took place less than two hours after the incident. That full interview is in this episode, along with backstory on how he and Norma met, as well as her relationship with Waldron’s mother, Alice.

COMING SOON

 

The Down & Away Podcast will have its inaugural season in early 2018. The first group of episodes will look at a cold case from Newaygo County, Michigan.

The victim’s name was Norma Waldron and she died on June 13, 1987 in her home in Fremont.

Her husband says it was suicide. Michigan State Police belive it was a homicide.

In future seasons, I will continue to concentrate on Michigan cold cases, specifically ones that haven’t gotten much attention.

If you have a Michigan cold case that you feel should be covered, you can contact me at deckerjeni@gmail.com
