The latest season of the Dakota Spotlight podcast, produced and narrated by host James Wolner, will launch Tuesday, Aug. 11.

Season 3, titled "The House on Sweet and Seventh," explores a grisly double homicide of a Bismarck, N.D., couple, slain at the hands of their son and his friend.

Wolner, who previously produced the first two seasons independently, joined Forum Communications Co. earlier this year.

In the latest season, listeners travel back to 1998, unraveling the details of the crime and attempted cover-up as a group of friends frustrated police detectives trying to solve the case.

Wolner reviewed thousands of pages of investigative reports, watched dozens of hours of police interview footage and conducted new interviews before producing the series.
