Jason B. Jones – New Podcaster Investigates the Unsolved Murder of his Own Grandmother.
Knock Knock: The Unsolved Murders of Betty Jones and Kathryn Crigler is the haunting, captivating and very personal story of the host, Jason B. Jones.
Jones said he was introduced to evil at 10 years old when his grandmother, Betty Jones, was gruesomely murdered in a case that would get national attention. Nearly 30 years later, with no active leads, he is opening his own look into the so-called “Labor Day Murders.”
The in-depth podcast launches September 3rd. Listeners will hear interviews with the current lead investigator, family members, journalists and people close to Betty Jones. Jason B. Jones even sits down with the current owner of the house she was murdered in. “Growing up, it was a taboo topic that we didn’t talk about because of the pain and the questions that came along with it. As I became an adult, and grew more curious about my past, who I was and how this traumatic event affected my childhood; I quickly realized there weren’t many answers,” said Jones.
Like other true crime podcasts like Serial and Up and Vanished, Jones hopes he can find real answers for the small town in Mississippi, his family, and himself, “I’m learning not just how she died, but more importantly how she lived.”
