"Minisode" 2: Stalking
It’s the return of the “minisode!” When we were planning the February minisode it was originally going to be a much shorter and much lighter but it turns out the women of the Daily Wildcat had a lot to say about stalking. That's because a disproportionate amount of them have been victims of it. Three Daily Wildcat Editors recount their personal experiences with stalking and how they dealt with it. Take a listen to this “minisode!” (Think of it as a bonus episode if you like.) Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter @wildcatcrimepod.

Season 1 Episode 4: The Murders of Teresa Acuna and Susan England
In the third episode of Wildcat Crime, we look into the 1982 murders of UA sophomores Teresa Acuna and Susan England. A suspect would not be found for over a year after the gruesome killings, leaving the community to process the deaths on their own. When the killer, Clifford Dean Lacy, was caught it would many years- and trials- before he was convicted. We also discuss the ways in which crime journalism has failed to respect victims in the past, how it could change in the suture and why the ways we cover crime matters.

Season 1 Episode 3: Jay Dobyns
In episode three of Wildcat Crime we take a look at not a real murder, but a fake one. Former Wildcat football star and retired ATF Agent Jay Dobyns staged a murder in order to become the first undercover operative to be made full member of the infamous biker gang the Hells Angels. Why did he do it? What were the consequences? And does that make him a hero? Find out on this episode of Wildcat Crime.

Season 1 Episode 2: The 2002 Shooting at the College of Nursing
EDIT: This episode was initially published on November 17, 2018. However it was missing an interview. This is the updated version, fully intact. Enjoy! In episode two of Wildcat Crime we go back to 2002 and take an in depth look at the shooting at the UA College of Nursing. Robin Rogers, Barbara Monroe and Cheryl McGaffic were all killed that day by Robert Flores Jr. And yet this event, a deadly shooting on the University of Arizona’s campus, is not well remembered today. We’ll look at the events of October 28, 2002. And we ask what’s changed? And what hasn’t?
