Mared & Karen: The WVU Coed Murders
In 2017, Kromatic Media released its latest project. Produced in coordination with a Morgantown researcher and New York Times bestselling coauthor, Mared & Karen: The WVU Coed Murders tells the true story of West Virginia University coeds who were beheaded in 1970. The show relies on extensive documentation and interviews with those directly involved in the saga of Mared and Karen, including reporters, lawyers and people in direct proximity to the crime. The show maintains a perfect 5-star rating on iTunes. Incorporated into regional university curriculum in forensics (WVU), true crime (Marshall University), and podcasting (University of Tennessee), and was awarded the “Mark of Excellence” in radio in-depth reporting by the Society of Professional Journalists.
The podcast can be heard by anyone on its Soundcloud page, and on an extensive list of podcasting services.
