Two phone calls. One mysterious death.

This is a true story.


On July 4, 2020 Kory received two phone calls. One from her uncle, saying her mother was found dead in her bedroom from an overdose. A second from a homicide detective saying he believes it was murder—and her uncle is the suspect.


Now Kory wants to find the truth about what happened to her mother. But sifting through the conflicting details and compelling evidence turns out to be a hell of a ride. And a fearless look into her mother's dark past will uncover a truth—one she never expected.

After completing her show Who Killed My Mother? a true crime podcast, Kory received countless emails from all over the world asking: "How did you heal from everything that happened? How did you move away from all of the abuse, trauma, and mental illness to become the (mostly) happy, (mostly) healthy, and (mostly) successful person you are today?


How can I be happier, healthier, and more at peace with myself and my life?"

This wellness podcast will explore the answers to those questions.
