The Words of West Cork Podcast
A new kind of true-crime podcast
Sophie Toscan du Plantier was murdered in West Cork, Ireland in December 1996. In the years that have followed, her family have never had proper closure. Many theories abound, but no one knows for sure why Sophie was taken from them or who killed her.
The Words of West Cork podcast looks at the words of those at the heart of the investigation. The suspects, the witnesses and even the police investigators.
What can we learn from what they have said? Is the truth somewhere within their words?
The small rural community where the events took place have thrown up a rich cast of characters, many of them eccentric. The Words of West Cork podcast looks at what they said at the time of the murder and what they say about events now. It will show where stories have been changed and delve deep to see who is being truthful, and who is being deceptive.
