The Deck Investigates with Ashley Flowers

more information  Know Before You Go

Award-winning podcast producer and New York Times bestselling author Ashley Flowers is bringing her chart-topping podcast, The Deck, to you live for the first time ever with The Deck Investigates tour. Every week for the past year, Ashley has been bringing you the details of some of the coldest cases across the country but now she’s dealing you in, in a whole new way. Join Ashley as she takes you through all of the twists and turns of the on-the-ground reporting in real time with The Deck Investigates tour.

The tour will feature a 90-minute live show with Ashley as she walks you through the details of an unsolved and underreported case that happened in the same region where she grew up. In the Summer of 1984, Darlene Hulse was brutally killed in her own home and despite the immediate manhunt, eyewitnesses, hundreds of leads, and investigative support from local, state, and federal levels, Darlene’s killer has gone undetected for nearly 40 years. Join Ashley as she shares newly uncovered details from exclusive interviews with the victim’s family, witnesses, law enforcement, and even the suspects themselves in hopes of finally bringing justice to Darlene and her family.

The Deck has partnered with PLUS1 and is donating $2 per ticket to support Season of Justice and their work to bring resolution to those impacted by unsolved crimes.
