In January, Harlan, Iowa’s newspaper had a complimentary front-page article about DIXIE’S LAST STAND: Was It Murder or Self-Defense? wildbluepress.com/Dixie
Days later, Twin Cities’ DARKNESS RADIO host Dave Schrader made DIXIE the topic of a 90-minute segment on True-Crime Tuesdays.
In February, we had a lively hour-long discussion about DIXIE on SHATTERED LIVES RADIO with host Donna R. Gore and Delilah Jones.
Then came Sunday, March 8. I looked forward to this date on my calendar as well. http://raasnio.com/GenerationWhyPodcast/dixie-shanahan/
I was thrilled when host Aaron Habel endorsed DIXIE for his listeners. “It’s recommended … Dixie Shanahan, it’s pretty interesting how everyone really feels for her. I encourage you to read the story. If you want to get the entire story, you’ll start to question did they get it right or does she have a case here even if she is not very good at expressing it?”
Below, I’ve listed a few of my comments from the #podcast for readers. I encourage everyone to listen to the full podcast if and when you have time. PLEASE support THE GENERATION WHY PODCAST by “Liking” them on Facebook.
Some of my quotes from the show:
“Some anonymous caller placed a call to the sheriff’s office in Shelby County, Iowa. The person just said, hey, you might want to start looking around for Scott Shanahan, more or less. We haven’t seen him for about a year or so.”
“The meter reader I always thought was a fascinating little part of the case. It just shows you the importance of some small details.”
“To the Sheriff’s credit and his agency’s credit, they took the anonymous call kind of seriously. They did their own research, their own digging, as far as what the facts were regarding this mysterious disappearance of a guy who was about forty years old, kind of a homebody, and a jerk, but nonetheless has not been seen or spotted anywhere in town yet his pick up truck is still sitting in his driveway.”
“The first thing they notice isn’t the sight, it’s the smell. They’re just overcome with the horrible stench of this dead body. It had been rotting in this bedroom for fourteen months.”
“The last chapter on Dixie Shanahan hasn’t been written possibly so time will tell, there still may be a reason to do an update on this book… Whether that would be a year from now, five years from now, ten years from now, who knows?”
