The Brutal Murders of Christopher Newsom and Channon Christian

The brutal story of the murders of Christopher Newsom and Channon Christian.

On the evening of January 6th, 2007, Channon and Chris met up at the Washington Ridge apartment complex in Knoxville, where Channon’s friend Kara Soward lived. The plan was for them to go to dinner and then to a friend’s party. Chris was late to arrive and Channon was sitting in the driver's seat of her white, Toyota 4 Runner waiting for him. Chris stood at the open door of the vehicle and the two were exchanging kisses with one another. There’s no doubt that Chris was trying to smooth things over with Channon about being late. These blissful, priceless moments were interrupted without warning, and what would follow, there’s only one word, unimaginable.

I've been fascinated with true crime ever since I was a young girl. My mom was an avid reader of true crime, after she was finished with a book, I would take it to my room and read it. I love the creative side of podcasting, fine tuning the graphics and using just the right piece of music.
