On November 15, 1993, the body of a woman was discovered on a dirt road near Interstate-10 in Mobile, Alabama. She was nude, drained of blood, and decapitated. The victim was identified as Renée Bergeron, the mother of a young girl named Amanda. Despite the horrific nature of the murder, it received little attention in the press, and the detectives assigned to the case failed to make an arrest.
Over two decades later, investigative journalist Sarah Cailean decided to reopen the case. In her podcast, Why Can’t We Talk about Amanda’s Mom?, Cailean recounts her three-year investigation, which led her to uncover a web of secrets and lies. She interviews Renée’s family and friends, as well as the detectives who worked the case. She also explores the possibility that Renée’s murder was connected to a serial killer who was operating in the area at the time.
Sarah Cailean is an investigative journalist and the host of the podcast Why Can’t We Talk about Amanda’s Mom?. She has written for publications such as Rolling Stone, The New York Times, and The Washington Post. Cailean is passionate about telling the stories of victims of crime and bringing justice to their families.
