Welcome to the Club!!
Every other week, your host, Ashley Garbs, will present a new tale of mystery, the macabre, or murder from the Bay Area! Join us as we dive deep into what makes this place the weird and wonderful place it is today.
On this episode of BAMC, Ashley discusses a double murder from her hometown of Pinole Valley. James Richard Odle killed Rena Aguilar and Officer Bernie Swartz of the course of 4 days in early 1980. Odle murdered Rena Aguilar in hopes to keep her from speaking to the police about a van he had stolen, and Officer Swartz was killed in the line of duty attempting to apprehend Odle after he had been on the run for days.
