A look into the minds of real-life American Psychos
When we think of white-collar criminals, we picture a CEO getting caught up in the latest financial scandal. But there is a subgroup within these seemingly nonviolent offenders who are never discussed in mainstream media – the white-collar criminals who kill.
Join Catherine Townsend as she dives into the minds of these real-life American Psychos…who are often hiding in plain sight. This is Red Collar.
Dying for Dollars
Three roommates are massacred in the quiet town of Verona, Wisconsin – and every-one in the apartment complex becomes a suspect.
The PI Murder
After a private investigator and mother of one vanishes without a trace from Pensacola, Florida, police begin to unravel her messy private life – and take a closer look at those closest to her.
A faked death, a mysterious blonde and a million-pound insurance policy lead police to reinvestigate the disappearance of a housewife in 1985.
The Playboy and Dr. Death
A handsome young international playboy, a middle-aged salesman and a doctor cooked up a million-dollar insurance scam involving a faked death.
Murder in Monaco
When a billionaire heiress is gunned down in broad daylight, her friends and neighbors in Monaco are shocked.
Sex, Drugs, Rock and Roll…and Death
After a nude body is discovered on a deserted Florida beach, investigators follow the trail to an infamous Ibiza party hotel – and an international ring of con men.
Catherine began her career as a staff writer for New York magazine and then moved to London, where she created the “Sleeping Around” dating column for The Independent newspaper. She wrote two bestselling books based on her columns – and discovered that dating and detective work have a lot in common.
But her true passion has always been solving mysteries. So after moving back to Los Angeles, she channeled her inner Nancy Drew and, after three years and 6,000 hours of training, acquired her private investigator license.
She threw herself into investigative journalism full-time, and is now the host of the hit iHeartMedia podcast Hell and Gone in addition to audiochuck’s Red Collar.
Catherine holds a B.A. in Journalism and Politics from New York University and an M.A. in International Journalism from City University in London.
