Welcome back to Death by Champagne, the podcast here to keep you up at night! Mack starts us off this week with an unbelievable case. Without giving too much away we will just say she covers a semi-local case from Kansas City, MO. The murder of infant Lorelai Sims. Liv takes us to New Jersey and cover a solved cold case known primarily as “Baby Bones”.
This episode contains foul language, major trigger warning for this episode regarding discussions about child abuse, child murder, and specifically infant deaths. We’ll do our best to stay on track, but the bottles are popped!
