The Love Story

To support the investigative efforts of Small Town Big Crime, please visit our Patreon page.Jens Soering and Elizabeth Haysom exchanged flowery love letters in the early months of their relationship but their writings also contained dark and violent fantasies that hinted at murder. Three decades later we re-examine those letters and compare their words then with what they are saying now. As Jens and Elizabeth begin new lives decades later and an ocean apart, they can't escape the crime that changed the course of both of their lives. Writing and reporting by Rachel Ryan and Courteney StuartHosting and sound editing by Jaclyn PiermariniSound effects editing by Taylor Thomas Support the show (
