Episode 23: Jodi Jones. Content Warning: This case involves the death of a child. As always, we want our listeners to look after themselves, so if you feel that this episode may be distressing for you we would advise you to possibly skip this episode or listen to another one instead.
Jodi was 14 years old when she was found brutally murdered just a short distance from her house. The alarm was quickly raised and Jodi was discovered by members of her family and her boyfriend the same night she went missing. Her 15 year old boyfriend Luke Mitchell was tried and convicted of her murder, but maintains his innocence after 15 years behind bars. Listen as Joannagh takes us through the case.
