The Girl on the Train Tracks

In Episode 267

In a rundown two-story house in Findley, Ohio, 24-year old Vera Jo Reigle was a prisoner and a slave.  The story behind how Vera ended up in such a terrible circumstance is complicated and disturbing.  At the heart of the story is the Brooks family, a family engaged in generational abuse and criminal activity.

Join us at the quiet end for The Girl on the Train Tracks. The tragedy of this story is how many people turned a blind eye to torture and abuse, allowing unspeakable crimes to occur unchecked.

    • Last night my sister and I watched the show about this horrible family. We both found it confusing; however, fortunately enough, my sister had already listened to your podcast and kept saying, “You have to listen to Jill and Dick!” So I just did. It cleared some things up for me, perhaps unfortunately.

      Also, as I sometimes do after watching a show or listening to one of your podcasts, I looked the story up online. Do you know that the teeth of all of the cast members, combined, makes up one full mouth of teeth?!!

      Oh the things we learn on the Internet.
