Ep 96: The Bridge Skyler Richardson Case (Part 1)

When 18-year-old Brooke Skylar Richardson went to the doctor for a routine checkup, she learned that she was pregnant and was due to give birth in a matter of weeks.

Just nine days later, she gave birth to a baby she says was not alive, and then concealed the body. Prosecutors claim she killed the baby in order to hide the pregnancy from her friends and family.

In Part 1, you’ll hear what happened, including from Skylar herself, in her interviews with police. You’ll also hear how investigators then built their case against her.
