*Note: Hi, everyone! I’m re-releasing this episode today, because today is day 2 of a 10-day campaign called “10 Days of Jacob,” organized by Jacob’s brother, Eric Carter-Landin of the essential true crime podcast, True Consequences. Please check out my social media for more details, and please take just a minute or two to help. This sweet baby boy’s murder has gone unprosecuted for 34 years, but we can help. For more details, please visit me on Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, and Pinterest at sufferthelittlechildrenpod, and on Twitter and TikTok @STLCpod. This case means a lot to me, so if you can give a minute of your time to share, email, sign the petition, make a phone call, or all of the above, it would mean the world to me. Thank you all!
Last week, I told you the story of Jacob Landin: a beautiful, happy nine-month-old boy, bursting with life and personality, whose death from blunt force trauma to the head has been unresolved for over 33 years. Despite investigators zeroing in on a single suspect, the case, which over the years saw a periodic resurgence in police interest, has gone officially unsolved, and the man believed to have caused Jacob’s death has gone unpunished.
For this week’s episode, I had the honor of speaking with Jacob’s older brother, Eric Carter-Landin. Eric, who was 6 at the time, was initially blamed for causing Jacob’s death, and he has channelled his traumatic childhood experiences and the loss of his beloved brother into his own true crime podcast, True Consequences.
This is part 2 of the infuriating story of Jacob Landin.
