The only criticism I have is the theory of the murder being a random break-in is beaten to death! Of course this was a personal crime! So many things point to that. I think the wife had something to do with it...there is no possible way she wasnât.
The reporter producing this is great but the religious overtones are annoying and off-putting. Thereâs a lot of interesting cases in N.C. and I would love to hear more from this guy- but please chill on the Jesus stuff.
I really like the narrator and what heâs trying to do here, but the family and friends are not helpful to the podcast. Most of them seem to want a platform to evangelize on, not justice for Matt. Iâd like to hear more theories and evidence.
I think whoever threatened the host is right, the person that did it probably IS listening, and I hope they keep up their coif because weâre sure to see their interrogation on 48 hours or Dateline.
I am really enjoying this podcast! I love when hosts have the opportunity to talk to the actual people involved with a case (victims, neighbors, police, etc). It makes the story much more authentic. All true crime fans should give this podcast a listen.
Awesome job on production and story from a first time podcaster - anything that makes me want to binge listen is a win!
Thank you for having the courage to do this podcast. I have a lot of thoughts and questions surrounding the case. Maybe his wife is scared or has been threatened? Maybe thereâs two different calibers d/t swat and/or police firing into the house? Maybe she didnât grab her daughter out of bed because Matt thought he would be okay and said he would grab her on his way out? Just some random thoughts. Itâs hard to put any picture together with the limited information and cooperation you had to work with. With all that being said you did a phenomenal job. Definitely left wanting more and justice for Matt Stewart!!
I find the format, delivery and music well done! Each episode looks at the evidence, or lack of it, and explores various experts and people who knew Matt opinions of this brutal murder. An additional mystery is why the police department is not still keeping this case active or acting on additional findings in the case. What are they afraid of?
Iâm a local to the Charlotte area and wanted to love this but I wanted to know more about the case, not the gospel. Really disappointed because it feels mostly like an attempt to proselytize. The reporter, however, is obviously talented and Iâd love to hear a less religious crime podcast ASAP :)
Dr Squires and Mr B sound pretttyyyy suspicious too though.
I wasnât sure I would like this podcast since the host is new to podcasting but he does a great job!
This could be a great podcast, but it leaves me screaming at my phone because what weâre all thinking is never actually said. Why not give the theory that the wife did it? Why not develop it more? I just felt underwhelmed by the lack of actually looking into their life and the possible suspect.
Great podcast .. please do more episodes
Anyone else have a hunch it was the wife and mother in law?
Have they looked at the wife?
Very well done, but so many questions and nobody wants to talk. Unbelievable to think his friends & family havenât thought about finding the killer(s) or done anything to remember Matt or get justice for him. There are way to many questions that need to be answered.
Listened to all the episodes. I liked the small town feel of the new âinvestigationâ and the link between the podcaster and the case. However, if I had to critique, Iâd say that things arenât really explored deeply enough. Episodes just feel like a lot of recap. What are some new theories? Two intruders? A staged crime scene? Any new evidence or witness testimony? The people interviewed donât seem all that interested in justice for the victim, or demanding answers from law enforcement. They all seemed to have come to terms with the death and moved on. So strange.
Wow!!!!!!!! I feel like he will find the killer!!!!!! He is very driven and I am a huge fan!!!!!! He is truly a great researcher!!!!!!! Why havenât the police traced the ammunition? It seems so uncommon that it would be so easy to trace. Doesnât that seem so unusual there was nothing at the scene? Something is VERY interesting! I highly recommend!!!!! Great job!!!!
Wow very hooked on this podcast! So engaging, I listened to all 5 episodes today, and Iâm already so excited to hear more.
I havenât listened to this podcast but I know itâs great! My opinion is valid thanks
The host has done an amazing job shining a light on this heartbreaking and truly puzzling case. The narrative is compelling, the facts are laid out clearly, and the host's local ties are helping to uncover new information in real time. I can't help but feel this podcast will play a role in uncovering what really happened to Matt that night. To the host, keep it up the great work! To everyone else, Listen to this one! Share it!
I stumbled upon this podcast and it surprised me (in a good way). Has the small town feel but good quality material & episodes that are sometimes lacking in other similar podcasts. I also think this case seems more solvable than other âcold casesâ and there are people holding back information for various reasons. There are tons of loose threads in the case and the online forum is the first one Iâve seen where it seems like people are coming forward with anonymous personal accounts. Definitely a small-town-secrets type of situation, so any armchair sleuths here might want to check it out!
Freddie does a great job! Curious story as the in-laws and friends arenât concerned with justice
A new podcaster with a hometown cold case. 9 years ago , a man was murdered. His family deserves answers. Please listen and spread the word to others. Maybe the more attention it gets, the closer to being solved.
GREAT Podcast. Sheds a lot of light on a forgotten case. Itâs has that whole âthings that make you go hmmâ moments factor. GREAT work! Keep it up.
Youâre onto something! Keep up the good work CHAMP!!
I just found this podcast through a friend (I live near where it takes place) I think the host is doing a great job and I canât wait to hear more.
Excellent coverage of a tragic crime. I hope that this podcast will encourage those that may have helpful information to share it and keep the case in the forefront until it is solved.
The wife shot her husband, then shot herself in the arm and alleged a home invasion. I've watched enough Snapped to see what likely happened here. Not sure why this is unsolved.
This is an intriguing case, but too much time is spent on recap.. if weâre lost, we can go back and listen to the previous episode to refresh our memories. I understand itâs probably due to the episodes releasing once a month, which is frustrating in itself
The podcast is great continue doing the job. Maybe some one will say something to break the case. The case really needs to be solved. I personally would like some closure. Matt should not have been murdered like he was. Someone knows who and why it was done. May God Bless you.
All these reviews are BS and probably written by the creator. This podcast is just full of lies. So if you like listening to lies... then this is the podcast for you.
Great podcast so far canât wait to hear how the story is further investigated.
I remember the phone call. I remember screaming out Oh no Father! No what about his kids. I remember crying for days. Walking into the visitation, seeing the family, not understanding how they were standing. I didnât say goodbye to Matt because I didnât think he was really gone. It felt like a dream. Normal conversations with people didnât seem right. I got to hold his grandmaâs hand at the 1 year anniversary gathering. Iâve seen the pain in his motherâs eyes and the sorrow his dad wears. If this is how these people will breathe again and bring healing then, so be it.
This is the best true crime podcast Iâve ever listened to! I canât wait to find out what happens next!
Thank you for covering this case! I'm from Mooresville and I always think about this tragedy from time to time. I hope that something new comes to light and his family and friends and able to get that justice they derseve!
Often stories are reported from far away, not from the insights from the community within. This is a new perspective that I hope sheds more light into this tragic story. May Matt be always remembered!
The show sounds great! I really look forward to the continuation of this story.
Great podcast. Glad that you are highlighting this tragic case. This story, and Matt, needs to be remembered. So sorry that his family and friends have had to go through such pain. Hope that whoever murdered Matt will be brought to justice.
