FLORIDA TODAY’s popular “Murder on the Space Coast” podcast was named a finalist for the prestigious 2019 Editor & Publisher EPPY Award for best podcast for this year’s season four “Where Justice Lies.”

The podcast took an in-depth look at numerous problems with the murder conviction of Melbourne’s Jeff Abramowski who is serving a life sentence for the murder of Dick Crandall. 

FLORIDA TODAY’S reporting uncovered inconsistencies in witness statements, problems with the timeline and evidence that the lead detective lied on the witness stand.  

“Murder on the Space Coast” took home the award for Best Podcast in 2017 for season two, which exposed startling similarities in the wrongful convictions of several men during the 1980s in Brevard County.

“Murder on the Space Coast” is reported and narrated by news columnist John A. Torres and produced by Rob Landers.

New episodes of the podcast updating season three’s Brandy Hall story are available now.
