We review Hanging AND catch-up on Laci, Scientology, Slenderman & more!

Weekly episodes have returned (no more goldbricking for Bricker - no more laying about for Lavoie)! The Crime Writers revisit some of the content they've recently discussed and give final verdicts on HomecomingThe Murder of Laci Peterson, and updates in the Slenderman case. Toby offers a preview of next week's topic: HBO's The Deuce. And the blow-back about the Payne Lyndsey - Up and Vanished controversy is deafening...not.

The panel dives into the new podcast from the Mercury News, "Hanging: The mysterious case of the boy in the barn." While it gets high marks for transparency and journalistic sensibilities, is there any story worth pursuing in this investigation into a ten-year-old's suicide?

In Crime of the Week, how much Liquid Plumber can we get to London?
