Tonight’s guest:

Jason B. Jones New Podcaster Investigates the Unsolved Murder of his Own Grandmother.

Knock Knock: The Unsolved Murders of Betty Jones and Kathryn Crigler is the haunting, captivating and very personal story of the host, Jason B. Jones.

Jones said he was introduced to evil at 10 years old when his grandmother, Betty Jones, was gruesomely murdered in a case that would get national attention. Nearly 30 years later, with no active leads, he is opening his own look into the so-called “Labor Day Murders.”

The in-depth podcast launches September 3rd. Listeners will hear interviews with the current lead investigator, family members, journalists and people close to Betty Jones. Jason B. Jones even sits down with the current owner of the house she was murdered in. “Growing up, it was a taboo topic that we didn’t talk about because of the pain and the questions that came along with it. As I became an adult, and grew more curious about my past, who I was and how this traumatic event affected my childhood; I quickly realized there weren’t many answers,” said Jones.

Like other true crime podcasts like Serial and Up and Vanished, Jones hopes he can find real answers for the small town in Mississippi, his family, and himself, “I’m learning not just how she died, but more importantly how she lived.”

Jason B. Jones works in the music industry as Creative Director at Integrity Music based in Nashville, Tennessee and is also creator of the podcast ‘Knock Knock: The Unsolved Murders of Betty Jones and Kathryn Crigler.’

Jason grew up with a love for music that eventually led him to a career in the music industry where he now supports musicians, amplifying their music and message. Over the last 15 years, he has worked closely with countless directors, photographers, writers, etc to create inspiring multi-media marketing from videos, imaging, digital design, branding, etc. Jason has worked alongside artists such as TobyMac, Amy Grant, Chris Tomlin, Michael W. Smith and Kari Jobe, to name a few.

Knock Knock Podcast focuses on the violent unsolved murders of Betty Jones and Kathryn Crigler. On Monday, September 3rd 1990, they were gruesomely raped and killed in Starkville, Mississippi in an unsolved case known as the “Labor Day Murders”. Their story received national attention on America’s Most Wanted, artist renderings of the suspect have been made and updated, DNA tests have been run and rerun. But still, the killer has never been found. 27 years later, this case remains cold and unsolved. Throughout this podcast we will dig into the details of this crime, make strides toward uncovering answers, and seek justice for the lives of these victims.

Tonight’s Guests:

A pervasive and destructive problem is afflicting our current justice system, eroding community confidence in law enforcement. “Shadow vigilantism” is a vicious cycle in which ordinary people, as well as criminal justice officials, are so fed up with the system’s failures that they distort and subvert the system to force it to do the justice that it seems reluctant to do on its own. The effects of this lack of trust are pervasive and pernicious: citizens refuse to report a crime or help investigators; jurors refuse to indict or convict; and officials manipulate a system that is perceived to be unreliable. This downward spiral eventually undermines the moral authority of law enforcement and creates widening rifts in the community.

Tonight’s Guest:

A stunning personal account of Janet Merlo’s twenty years of service in the RCMP, with an introduction by Linden MacIntyre. In 2012, Janet Merlo was among the first female RCMP officers to publicly allege she had experienced sexual harassment and gender discrimination while serving in Canada`s national police force. The women kept silent for so long, she says, because there was no one to tell. In this courageous memoir, Janet recalls how her love of policing was soured by covert and overt sexism within the ranks and by an institutional culture that valued toughness and silence over ethics and accountability. Tracing her twenty years in uniform, Merlo’s story details the highs and lows of her career in the RCMP – while her mental health and personal life disintegrated. Eventually, the cost of keeping quiet was simply too high, and her story emerges as a lone, brave voice seeking change.
