This is a preview for the second bonus episode from S5: The Execution of Daniel Shaver. In this episode, we delve into the history of misconduct at the Maricopa County Medical Examiner's Office. Specifically, a one: Dr. Mark Shelly.

Dr. Shelly performed the autopsy on Daniel Shaver and even gave testimony during the trial of Mitch Brailsford. But this episode is about events that occurred much earlier. In fact, seven years earlier—when Dr. Shelly was working as a naval doctor.

On that fatal winter night in 2011, Dr. Shelly made a decision that would make national headlines, cost him his job, and forever stain his otherwise pristine reputation.



If you want to hear the full episode it will be on Patreon, ad-free, where you can also hear every episode in our back catalogue...also, ad-free, and at pristine 320 kilobytes-per-second audio quality.
