A Very Fatal Murder

A Very Fatal Murder is a comedic podcast presented as a faux documentary about an investigation into the murder of a 17-year-old girl. It is produced by The Onion as a parody of true crime podcasts such as Serial and S-Town.

A Very Fatal Murder sends Onion Public Radio (OPR) correspondent David Pascall from New York City to the sleepy town of Bluff Springs, Nebraska to investigate the mysterious death of a 17-year-old girl, Hayley Price. Hayley was a popular, smart animal lover, with a bright future ahead of her. Everyone in town knew her name, and now everyone in town is a suspect. Join David as he works to understand why the initial investigation of Hayley's death failed, and how a very inquisitive and Pulitzer-hungry podcast host might shed new light on the case.
