Paper Ghosts

True Crime

It’s the dead of summer, 1989, in the heart of the Ozarks. An 18-year-old woman goes missing from Bella Vista, Arkansas. As the search moves forward, several suspects emerge. Then… a body is found not far from the Missouri border, and a homicide investigation begins. Soon, a second body is discovered nearby. What was a mystery transforms into the hunt for a possible serial killer stalking young women throughout the Ozarks. M. William Phelps digs in nearly 35 years later and begins to understand that things aren’t always what they seem.

  • I am so impressed with Paper Ghosts!

    I love the stories, the first hand accounts, the investigative feel, and the respect for the victims (living and deceased). It’s well written, well produced, interesting, and in a time with multiple true crime options— a feeling of originality! I wish there were 3 more seasons— no, 30 more! Excited to check out the new season in Feb’24 and his standalone podcast, Crossing the Line with M. William Phelps!

  • Confusing and too many adds!

    The narrator has a very fast way of speaking that I find annoying and his narration is confusing at times. As others have said he has a big ego about his true crime investigation skills. And way too many adds.

  • Not worth the ads

    I feel the only way to get these podcasts to not include more ads than content is to rate them badly then their podcasts won’t show up in charts
