Introducing Accused

Chapter 1: The crime

Three days after Christmas in 1978, Elizabeth Andes was one of the few students on Miami University’s Oxford campus. Most students were home for winter break, but Beth – a recent graduate – was in town packing up her apartment so she could move to Cincinnati for her first big job. That day, she treated herself by buying a fancy pair of leather boots to celebrate her successes. But she never got to wear them. Instead, her boyfriend, Bob Young, reported finding her lifeless body in the apartment they had shared during their last semester of college together. Police and prosecutors considered the death an open-and-shut case, zeroing in immediately on Young. But Beth’s friends never thought things were quite so simple. Through this podcast, The Enquirer will lay out its investigation into the cold case in hopes of finally figuring out who got it wrong nearly 40 years ago – police or the jury?

Chapter 1: The crime

Chapter 2: The couple

As Oxford police began investigating the city’s first murder in a quarter-century, detectives bolstered their case against the victim’s boyfriend. But did cops’ theory on motive line up with what Beth’s friends knew about the couple? Bob Young had no prior criminal record, and no one at trial testified he had even a slight temper, much less a murderous one. Despite this, police records indicate that investigators didn’t give much weight to the men in Beth’s life that her friends say warranted some scrutiny in the wake of her murder. In this episode, The Enquirer delves into Beth’s personality, her relationship with Young and her plans after college in hopes of determining whether the prosecution’s case against Young made any sense.
