California PC 187: The Podcast

By Bret Cher Dwee

Bret, Cher and Dwee talk about murder, murder, murders that have occurred mostly in Los Angeles County California. We are an unpolished, crass trio who records out of our Jeep, Daniel. Cher uses potty mouth words, Bret tends to mumble and Dutch occasionally barks. We love True Crime stories, we do our research and we do this for fun and for free! Don’t let the sunshine fool you.

How to Become a Homicide Detective

How to Become a Homicide Detective

The last episode was harder on us mentally and emotionally than we ever anticipated. It totally fucked us up. Therefore, we have decided to make episode three somewhat educational and light hearted. We take a more in depth look at California Penal Code 187, as well as give an overview of the Law Enforcement Agencies that serve Los Angeles County. We end on a positive note with a brief biography of LAPD Homicide Detective honored with Badge Number 1, John Paul St. John, better known as "Jigsaw John." Thanks for listening!
