"And take action today. The biggest story that there was in america yesterday. I think this was a surprise to everyone. I'm assuming it's a surprise to our next guest. Even though she's the foremost authority on this issue nikki egan has been reporting on cosby. Since two thousand and five. It's been hard to report on. Cosby will get into some of that with her in a second philadelphia daily news. I is where she did it. People magazine after that. They've been great challenges in putting together. This chasing cosby podcast of hers and her book. But it is thorough. The reporting here. And as i said she is america's foremost authority on this subject over the last fifteen years. Nikki egan with us. Now thank you for joining us. I guess the first question. I would ask you how i wish i could explain to you. I miss laney how it happened. But i'm still trying to process why it happened because this decision makes no sense What happened is cosby appealed his his conviction and a pa pennsylvania. The supreme court agreed to hear it on two issues. One whether these other accusers testified should have been allowed to testify so called four four witnesses and second weather. This press release that the da issued in two thousand five wouldn't charge kospi was ostlund immunity agreement. And that's why cosby was so talkative during the acquisition of made those incriminating statements. That intern used against him in in a quarter law in his trials. I'd say it's puzzling. Because i that was. I watched the supreme court our arguments in december and i was first of all. They were so hostile openly contemptuous of the prosecution and it really surprised me that chief justice even walked away from the camera at one point. This was all on youtube and it was cova d- so it was over laptops in stuff and is three dark for ten minutes. No explanation no anything. It was clear they were going to roll. It causes favor. But i didn't think it would be this issue. I thought it would be the other one. Do you know how rare it is for a prosecutor to make a secret agreement like this guaranteeing someone no prison time because of the civil suit without consulting with a judge but that's in that goes to the core of what's going on here this is. This is highly unusual. Actually don't believe that. This agreement was made into dozen five. I think it's something they came up with when this case re exploded again in dafalla two thousand fourteen Because the i got that press release in two thousand five when would press releases a press releases a press. Release their casters first assistant. Reaffirming had no clue the. That's what castor said it was in castor was on the stand testifying about this in two thousand sixteen and he said he told her. He told her to tell injuries attorneys. She denies that so. I know there's zero proof that this is actually true and within were shocking to is. I mean you could see them ruling on this and then throwing it out and get a new trial but they ordered he could be tried for a third time any immediately released from from prison and i really think his wealth power and privilege came into play with the state supreme court. In this case. It can't happen without those things correct. Woody need wealth power and privilege. This simply would not happen without those things right. I mean he also had endless supply of money he. I think he was on lawyers. Twenty seven and twenty eight. I might have good numbers wrong. Because every time he lost emotion he would get new attorneys and So this was his most recent batch of attorneys and he spent. I don't know how much on it and that's what sat here is like the average criminal. Defendant who uses a public defender would not have gotten this type of treatment and he can all he wants about. You know what he thinks is the reason for his prosecution that that was not the case. He had seven private criminal defense attorneys that his second trial. I mean i don't know many defendants that can afford that. You have been reporting on this since two thousand and five philadelphia daily news senior writer for people magazine. How surprised were you by what happened yesterday. What was your reaction. Because this fell out of the sky. As i said i was expecting them to rule in his favor but i thought it would be on the issue of the other women who testified whether or not these four hundred forty witnesses that were five other women who testified and whether or not they should have been allowed to because it's sort of an issue to hasn't been decided. I thought the other issue was ridiculous that this press release wasn't immunity agreement. Kuneva believe they agreed to hear it. So i was completely shocked and then the remedy the remedy usually. Is you get a new trial. No they forbade a new trial at trial and they ordered him released immediately. It was just like six was in. Do you think. I don't know your journalist here.

"Pirro was an expert on one show telling me, there's no way judges. There's no way that's ever going to be admissible. And I said, well, I talked to a pencil, I in Pennsylvania, are you a lawyer, I know but I talked to Pennsylvania lawyer, who told me it's possible, but it's up to a judge. And Dan, Abrahams had a former Pennsylvania prosecute Ron saying, same thing. Oh, that will never be allowed in court. I said, but I spoke to Pennsylvania. Keita who told me it could. Well, let me tell you at this last trial, where he was convicted, there were five women. Other women who testified all those allegations from thirty years ago, and the judge allowed them in the book is chasing Cosby, and it's written by Nikki Egan, who again, we had her back on in in January talking about smiley face killers. Boy, did we get a strong response to get an update on this mystery in and of itself people trying to out about that. Do do you have you have anything new to report on that? They're going to be another version of that story coming out. No. I mean I'm not working. I'm story on there. Yeah. I mean, they have reopened the police have reopened one of the cases, Chicago case, Brian wells in whose body turned up in Indiana, the police every up in that case they said there was there was no water in his lungs. Looked like had been just all the things he's been saying, again talk about into the wind. They've been doing it to, you know. For years, saying, these cases, don't add up to accidental drownings. So now the police have finally reopened at least one of them, which is some progress after all this time. But, you know, one of the toughest things are up against this stupid, and I will say stupid because I think it is the center for homicide research did a report and two thousand ten and I don't think they ever left their offices and wherever they're located and debunk to all the theory. So when you Google smiley face killers that comes up, but I looked like the person who heads that center for homicide research is not an a retired homicide detective or anything retired firefighter. He was a firefighter for twenty two years. And they don't have access to any of the information that the detectives have. But so they really have they are fighting uphill battle the empathize with, because I felt like it was the same thing with trying to tell people what was going on the Cosby. But yeah, at least finally, one of the police department has reopened the case and they're not giving up. I mean there's. A bunch overseas to I mean this thing is the smiley face killers overseas. Yeah. Oh, yeah. There's, there's a lot of mysterious deaths over in the UK. Ireland and yeah, I don't know how we can be an asset. But cow does. I mean again, we didn't know each other back then. But we were on the story in our own little way here on this, you know national radio show back at a time when nobody else had ever heard of it. Nobody else was talking about it. I was I talked to FBI profiler. Not Jack Crawford, not the guy. I used his name from silence lips. But not. But people who are telling me, you know, there's nothing to this story. Get off of it. It's fiction, you, you're ruining your own credibility. And I thought, well, it's because I didn't think I had any credibility to begin with. That big a fall. But, but the fact that there's still the discussion is still going on. I think it only true for the families who have been yelling just like you said, screaming into the world wind about, but my son, but my son this didn't it doesn't. It's not. Right. He what he didn't commit suicide. It wasn't you know, death by misadventure. Something happened to drunk kid. I mean Pittsburgh won that he walked on all the steps to go pee into the river. And when it's freezing out in middle. They don't add up, and that's what I keep saying. I don't have access to all information detectives, but it will say when you take each of these cases, and you look at them, they don't add up the one guy that still kills me where he was mostly standing up in the water when they well, whatever it is that he was beat Tommy booth in another one. They say they were being recruited by this game. And they were bust them, basically. And that's why they're just whatever it is consider us an asset. Fascinate me too. I mean,.

"But, you know, I trust my own reporting I didn't sway me from the story. But it was not a lot of fun. I. Book last summer. I was just reliving some of it was. We were talking a little bit less side about post traumatic stress in reliving traumatic events and how these weird triggers and you suddenly you're like you find yourself short of breath and you don't even know why you're going through it. But you're you are, you know that you bring up a really interesting point to it. I'm gonna hit the de neighbors because I kind of like him, right? I mean he's a very likable figure in a lot of ways on television. But that also speaks to the fact that somehow your credibility was much more important, like, like the, these are facts are not facts, right? I mean, it's not a matter of their your facts. The here. You're, you're not you're not an accuser. So why is your credibility de believer? I mean why does that even have anything to do with it? It's either prove those facts, wrong or not. But this is where we are in a media culture. What a difference it makes when you, you said something really important. The mother had recorded right? Andrew Constance mother had recorded a call from Bill Cosby. Right. And there was the accusation was that it was an illegal wiretap, but she recorded it. And once you've got a recording of somebody saying something. You know, it's really hard to unring that bell. And I believe very strongly, and recording people recording things and hitting that record button that we have all on our phones, all the time if somebody's trying to tell you something, and they believe it's true. Then they shouldn't be bothered by the fact that you recorded it. Well, exactly. I mean, she, she didn't tell him she was recording of it. She didn't have to end of law. Let me say one party state trials those calls were ruled admissible so but other thing that was going on, as I interviewed a sex crimes expert in my story about Tamara green, my could her pest him only Sunday admitted at trial if he's arrested. And they said it's possible it could be they call four four b witnesses to show prior bad acts. But that it's up to a judge. Janine Pierrot was an expert on one show, telling me, there's no way judges, no way ever going to be admissible. And I said, well, I talked to pencil in Pennsylvania, are you a lawyer? I said, no, but I talked to a Pennsylvania lawyer, who told me it's possible, but it's up to a judge. And Dan, Abrahams had a former Pennsylvania prosecutor on saying, same thing that will never be allowed in court said, but I spoke to Pennsylvania. Who told me could?

The book is chasing Cosby, it's written by Nikki Egan, who again we had her back on in in January talking about smiley face killers.

Do you have you having new to report on that, as they're going to be another version of that story coming out? No. I mean I'm not working on story on there. Yeah. I mean, they have reopened the police have reopened one of the cases, Chicago case, Brian wells, Ian, whose body turned up in Indiana. The police have reopened that case they said there was there was no water in his lungs been. Been detected insane again. Talk about into the wind.

"And if you think about it, it's sort of a devil's, advocate what better way to disguise a murder than a drowning. As I was talking to somebody drowning experts that have been involved with the case, you know, the first whatever they find a body in body water. First conclusion is oh they drowned. Preserve the scene. They don't, you know, try to do anything. They just you know, they drowned. And there's so many weird things about these drownings. I mean, the one kid with found standing straight up in the water. Okay. I don't know how that happened head Joshua. Now, he called his friends saying he was scared and being pursued by people he didn't know, and then he was found dead. There's the survivor you remember him Colin for me, the survivor the one who was out with his friends drinking at one o'clock in the morning. And the next thing, you know, it's five thirty in the morning. He's swimming in the middle of the river. And doesn't know how in the hell he got there. He doesn't remember the last four hours. So we took himself to an emergency room and got treated, but yeah, he's one of the survivors of these guys. You know, this is we're talking with Nikki Egan. She wrote this. Great piece yesterday in the Daily Beast, and you can link up to it through coast to coast AM dot com. Do you still right for people occasionally, by the way? No, I left there a couple of years ago. And I just I I just want a book that's coming out. And now we're going to talk about the Cosby book. That's what I've been doing mostly for the last year. But I still like the freelance stories that I sure. Care about. So when I had an opportunity to write about this again, I pitched it to the east. I have a friend Casey Baker who writes for people sometimes. Casey. Okay. Good. I said hi if you talk to her so this is where at her dad to who's super nice guy. So the this is this is where the smiley face story kind of lives though, is in between, and I not elevating myself to your position, but kind of inbetween people like us and the podcast and other people who can in the callers and everybody who continues to be interested in trying to find Justice for these young men who seemingly suspected something that was going on that night, in many cases, not just one were telling people that they felt like they were being followed or that they were a radical in their behavior that night, which none of their friends could account for why they were acting that way. And there's and and and this idea of of vans that were appearing and townspeople saw. I mean, this these are consistent characteristics in these testimonies that it that someplace that could collate empirical information like the FBI is unwilling to. To do. And so it just leaves it up to the people to keep bringing it up hoping that somebody will take interest and be able to work between all of these police departments. Although that doesn't seem like, well, let me ask you. What was the response? You got to the article from yesterday. Oh, someone immediately this snotty writer at that's been immediately wrote an article saying that have been debunked. Why are you writing about it? Twenty four years old and did second Google search excluded? That now. But I've gotten a lot of from my journalists friends who know me who experience like, I am they're the ones who have covered some of these cases, they know how crazy some of these cases are that that it that it just doesn't add up,.

He wasn't slurring and terrified like texting or doing something with this phone just walking across and he seems fine. And then he just walks down. This alley I guess the last shot of they got was he kinda lead against the wall for a second. And then the cameras at the other end of the alley had water in them. So they couldn't catch him, and then either could have gone left and then gone right over the Roberto Clemente bridge to go home, but the cameras didn't capture him doing that you should finish. The there's another piece there too in your story where he told her that he had on the initial case when he called her scared said come pick me up disoriented where he was. He said that he had already spoken to a police officer in the cockpit blown them off. Yeah. That's what he said. He said, I've tried to have the cops the cops won't help me. And you know, I tried to ask all these questions. I did ask all these questions of the Pittsburgh cops the DA's office Emmys office, they were very rude. Very dismissive. And you've got an answer you can keep asking questions all you want. But you've got our answer. They treat a reporter like that. I can imagine how fabric they treat the families on March sixth two thousand seventeen forty days after Dakota James disappeared. Roughly nine weeks after the original call to his friend a woman walking her dog saw his body floating in the Ohio river ten miles from where he was last seen downtown. Other thirty feet offshore which isn't that far ruled an accidental drowning. That's what they wrote it. Even though there's no body had traveled ten miles down that river. And there's a steel and concrete Dan there that it would have had to go like over underneath there's no damage to the body whatsoever. And there's. It's the same type of thing. It didn't look like body wasn't a decomposed enough to have been in the water for that long. And the the mother also, oh, and the kicker is this is the horrifying, ticker. But so they the family never got just got an autopsy report they never they had to specifically request photographs from the autopsy they weren't allowed to see Dakota on the mother was forced to identify him by looking at a tattoo on his ankle. They wouldn't let her see her own son, and because Dakota's wishes where to be cremated. That's what they had done with him. But that we took a year and a half. But she finally got in just this past August, she got photos from autopsy. And they took it to Sarah wack this. Same pathologist to. Looks like there's ligature marks around his neck. And then there's also there's broken blood vessels and stuff amongst fingers the top some of the things in both hands. Like he was reaching to get that ligature net off his neck, whatever it was. And so he thinks that they could have been relation could have been the cost. And and part of this story isn't just the kids are are these young men typically again, the the the consistent characteristics are young athletically built. They are not known for being or at least at one point the one of the common characters they were not known for being heavy drinkers. They were known for being regular perhaps. Patrons at a at a bar for parties. But they weren't these weren't people who are walking around drunk all day long. And they were they were high performers. They are overachievers they had a future. They were bright. They seem to be targeted almost on the basis of that. And that's what made me think I'm sure you've heard of the whole phenomena. This rise of the beta thing, and they're sort of the revenge of the beta males, this feeling that some people have and it it exists on the web at least in in word. I don't know how whether anybody really. Turns it into this kind of tragic action. But that that these are people that are that should be punished for being so popular because of the in cells, the involuntary celebrate men who are sitting in basements, envious of the popularity of the genetically gifted or whatever. And and so I wonder whether that could be a component in this this this dark beta male thing where they're taking revenge out on the on the popular and good looking right. I I think that's what I was saying earlier. Detectives thought envy thing, you know, you're you're the phrasing a different way. But these these guys they they wish they were, you know, and they're not so right. All right. I'm specifically the insulting. This is. This is a really interesting. There's it's much more formal and the associations of installs around the country. So where some people thought originally, this might be some satanic thing, you know, or some group that was traveling around in a van, and they were doing these initiations that maybe it's just a matter of these sort of thrill killings that are going on amongst amongst in cells that are taking out their frustrations on the popular. I know I'm just spinning. But that's how I even back. Then I think they thought that there were different cells, and they because they figured that. It was it was organized in somewhat structured, but because they they figured they had to have different groups in different cities. And that's why you know, one of the criticisms has been well, the writings not the same with the well, it's different thousand different cities different stocks at my story. I mean, one in one one group of five out and do something one night and another group of five might do it another. But the yeah, that's the only way they could figure two when they first start looking at this as to how there could be a couple different ones in different parts of the country at the same time because there has been that. I mean, there's been like I think eleven or thirteen in Boston too. And you know, you read because this book, and you and you look at the list of the ones in the mid west. It's these are not guys who die like this. If you were you'd see it in every city in the country. Right. Oh, yeah. There's another drunk guy. It just fell into the river. When he went out drinking. You know, you only see whether it's been like a cluster of these it's not and even statistically, they did a statistical analysis, and it doesn't hold up that you you would expect to see this everywhere if this were just a phenomenon of you know, this is just this is what happened guys that age get drunk and fallen. River, and you would expect to see that all of the country, and you're not you're just seeing it in clusters any specific city. We're talking with Nikki Egan, the author of the Daily Beast piece yesterday, we've lifted up to our website at coast to.

Now, he called his friends saying he was scared and being pursued by people he didn't know, and he was found dead. There's the survivor you remember him, Colin for me, the survivor one who was out with his friends drinking at one o'clock in the morning and the next thing, you know, it's five thirty in the morning. He's swimming in the middle of the river. Doesn't know how in the hell he got there. He doesn't remember the last four hours. So we took himself to an emergency. Room and got treated, but yeah, he's one of the survivors of these guys. You know, this is we're talking with Nikki Egan. She wrote this great piece yesterday in the Daily Beast, and you can link up to it through coast to coast AM dot com. Do you still right for people occasionally, by the way? No, I left there a couple of years ago. And I just I I just wanted to buck. That's coming out. And now we're going to talk about the kospi book. That's what I've been doing mostly for the last year. But I still like to freelance stories that I care about. So when I had an opportunity to write about this again, I pitched it to the east. I have a friend Casey Baker who writes for people sometimes. And. Casey. Okay. Good. I said hi if you talk to her so this is we enter dead to who's super nice guy. So the this is this is where the smiley face story kind of lives though, is in between, and I not elevating myself to your position, but kind of inbetween people like us and the podcast and other people who can end the callers and everybody who's continues to be interested in trying to find Justice for these young men who seemingly suspected something that was going on that night, in many cases, not just one were telling people that they felt like they were being followed or that they were they were a Radic in their behavior that night, which none of their friends could account for why they were acting that way. And there's and and and this idea of vans that were appearing and townspeople saw. I mean, this these are consistent characteristics in these testimonies that it that someplace that could collate empirical information like the FBI is unwilling. To do. And so it just leaves it up to the people to keep bringing it up hoping that somebody will take interest, and it'd be able to work between all of these police departments. Although that doesn't seem like, well, let me ask you. What was the response? You got to the article from yesterday. Oh, someone immediately. This nutty writer at that's been immediately wrote an article saying that have been debunked. Why are you writing about it? Twenty four years old and did second Google search excluded that? But I've gotten a lot of from my journalist friends who know me and who experience like, I am they're the ones who have covered some of these cases, they know how crazy some of these cases are that that it that it just doesn't add up, you know. It's just so easy in this day and age with especially with some of the online places all they want to do is cut other media organizations down. That is weird thing shot they can write. But I was even curious whether you heard with you've heard anonymously or discreetly from anybody else in law enforcement because that may be the other way, and this kind of we circle back a little bit to the Cosby case where you never know what's going to create the momentum that's going to lead to a resolution, and in the case of the Cosby thing, I mean, it was kind of an open secret in some regard what he was doing. But it really took a comedian making constant jokes about how many times America's dad was popping up in these stories online. Go ahead, and look it up and people started doing it. And next thing. You know, you know, prosecutors had previously passed on pursuing it legally. We're suddenly sort of forced shamed. Even into reconsidering it, and that's what I wonder whether it could happen here that that that with enough attention that we we can bring to it by enough people who are credible that they somebody somewhere. We'll say, okay, fine. You know, we'll do it. We may not like it. But we'll do it. Well, I mean, I think that's that's why detectives to Doxa surgeon show because they're finally they wanna take it to the public and let the public decide because you know, they're not having a lot of law enforcement, and it's sad. Because if you look at a lot of these cases, it's not a lot of them. You know, there's there's cause of death which is in the manner of death. So causes like drowning or strangling and manner is suicide homicide accident undetermined. A lot of these are labeled undetermined. So even saying we don't know what these are. But still no one's doing anything about it. But I think they're hoping that you get out into the court of public opinion with his show in social media, and that might make the difference. And but Cosby what happened was I think social media media, huge difference too. And by the way, it was a different prosecutor who ended up reopening the case, and that was after his deposition became public. And they saw what he had admitted to. But. Yeah, the full force of all these other women start coming forward. I mean social media made that possible.
