Among my headings under this one twelve months I find an account of the adventure of the Paradol Chamber, of the Amateur Mendicant Society, who held a luxurious club in the lower vault of a furniture warehouse, of the facts connected with the loss of the British barque "Sophy Anderson", of the singular adventures of the Grice
Patersons in the island of Uffa, and finally of the Camberwell poisoning case.
But to protect the identities of victims, something that is very important to both women and the Grices, names and other identifying facts have been changed.
Together, the two discuss the true crime cases with brothers Dan and Dave Grice, both Springfield police detectives together until Dan Grice's retirement last October.
"I heard later from Dan (Grice) that when his sergeant went to the detectives and asked, 'Who wants to guard this celebrity?' No one raised their hand," she said, with her recognizable laugh.
Dan Grice eventually volunteered, but Smith said the lack of enthusiasm from both of them to do the event was not lost on her, given what happened later.
Her hours were more flexible than Grice's, who was a full-time detective at the Springfield Police Department.
Last October, Grice, 41, told her he would retire and move to Los Angeles.
Smith and Allen decided to start a podcast after hearing stories from Grice about his police work in Springfield.
Best friends for many years and both big fans of true crime stories, Allen and Smith peppered Grice with questions about cases.
The unnamed suspect was seized at his home in Clapham, south London, near where the Grices live.
Leukaemia boy Ashley Grice will have his life-saving bone marrow transplant this week.
