Just days after she graduated from Miami University in December 1978, Elizabeth Andes was found dead in her Oxford apartment by her boyfriend, Robert Young. Police quickly homed in on Young as their prime suspect. After extensive questioning, he confessed. 

For police and prosecutors it was an open-and-shut case. But Young recanted the confession, saying he was tired, traumatized and confused. Two separate juries--one criminal, the other civil--found him not guilty of the crime. Oxford Police refused to re-open the case, insisting the juries were wrong and that Young got away with murder. For family and friends of the 23-year-old woman questions linger to this day about her death.

Cincinnati Enquirer journalists Amber Hunt and Amanda Rossmann have spent a year looking into the 37-year-old cold case. They join us this afternoon to discuss the podcast detailing their investigation, ?Accused: The Unsolved Murder of Elizabeth Andes.?
