Sometimes, just because a killer is in prison, doesn’t mean a murder mystery has been solved. On Sleuth, a new original podcast coming to iHeartRadio on Wednesday, August 29, crime journalist and host Linda Sawyer revisits the gruesome murder and dismemberment of college students Sam Herr and Julie Kibuishi in 2010.
Killer Daniel Wozniak has been on death row since 2016 for committing the murders. Like a real-life Phantom of the Opera, he lured one of his victims into the attic of a theatre where he killed and dismembered him before performing on stage that very same night. But did he act alone? It was revealed at Wozniak’s trial that the murders were committed as part of a plot to steal money for his wedding and honeymoon with ex-fiance Rachel Buffett, but her role in the crime remains unclear. Buffett has professed her innocence in the press, but after two years of dedicated research, Sawyer has her doubts.
With Buffett’s murder trial starting next week, Sleuth is kicking off at the perfect moment. Don’t miss this unique opportunity for a front row seat as this harrowing murder trial unfolds in real time. Will the jury come to the same conclusion as Sawyer and will justice be served?
