Body In Cat Litter - Say What?! Billy Jensen has seen it all!! 4 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

By now, you all know I live for true crime and so when Billy Jensen (friends with Karen and Georgia from MFM and he helped finish Michelle McNamara’s book) came out with his own book, I was all over it!

Jensen is an incredible storyteller and his road to becoming an investigative journalist is pretty cool. Chase Darkness with Me is an autobiographical view into Jensen’s start. He shares personal stories from his upbringing, his college years, and how he became an advocate for cold case victims. 🧡Some of the cases he’s been a part of are surreal! Like the one about a body being covered in a mountain of cat 🐈 litter (I’m not joking 💩). It’s nuts. And this tell-all isn’t holding back!!


It’s only available on audio 🎧 right now. And I would definitely recommend this to any My Favorite Murder listener! 🔪

NOTE: if you have listened to Jensen’s and Paul Holes’ podcast The Murder Squad, some of this book will sound repetitive. At first, I was like “wahhhh 😫” because I’m a brat. But then I had to applaud Jensen because these are the cases that truly cultivated his drive and the fact that he’s getting answers for so many families is FREAKING RAD! 👏🏽
