The Pearson Family Murders

Season 1 of “Investigated” is a multi series podcast that tells the wild and tragic tale of three families that were destroyed by James Arthur Pearson. The trail of devastation he had left after he murdered his wife Pauline and two daughters, Paula and Marianne Pearson in Santa Clara in 1969, told by the childhood friend who lived it, Sonya Paz.

This was a time in these women’s lives where they were getting ready to shine in their future and this was abruptly yanked away from them by their father who snapped, brutally murdered all three women and buried them under the home. They weren’t found until four and a half years later.
While he was on the run he was living his best life and with no remorse, continuing his chaos and ultimately creating more destruction to two other families and running from the law and reinventing himself. Your hosts,
Sonya & Marek tell this story after 50 years of not knowing the true facts of this case that involves murder, child abduction, embezzlement, lies, theft, identity theft and so much more.
