Truth & Justice is a true crowdsourced investigation in real time. Host, Bob Ruff, asks listeners to help with investigations as he takes on a new potential wrongful conviction case every season. The subject of Season 10 is the 1996 murder of Houston woman, Catalina Palomino, and the possible wrongful conviction of 15 year old Jennifer Jeffley. Join the investigation!
 
Imagine being wrongfully convicted for a crime you didn't commit, or imagine your child's killer is still on the loose even though there's enough evidence for an arrest. I want to help shine light on the injustices of our judicial system. I delve into court documents, attend trials, and interview those close to the case to help me tell their stories.
 
Missing Pieces is a true-crime podcast that investigates cases in Southeast Texas. Season 2 investigates the murder case of Sandra Melgar.

But did she do it, or did a jury convict an innocent woman to prison? Missing Pieces is a podcast by KHOU in Houston, Texas. Read more at KHOU.com/MissingPieces.
