Join Ladygang's Jac Vanek, true crime TV producer Alexis Linkletter, and investigative journalist Billy Jensen on a chilling ride into the darkest corners of your worst nightmares. We're talking murder, serial killers, cults, conspiracy theories and beyond, all told through the eyes of a guest who is one degree of separation from the story itself. From Ted Bundy and Jeffrey Dahmer to an unknown heinous murder in your very own hometown, The First Degree will bring a new and refreshing perspective to the true crime phenomenon. And who knows...you may be our next guest.
In the debut episode, Jac, Alexis, and crime journalist Billy Jensen examine the tale of Ryan Jenkins, an alleged Canadian millionaire with a dream of making it big on reality television. His wish was granted when he landed starring roles on VH1's Megan Wants A Millionaire and I Love Money 3, but the real life drama that followed was far too twisted and explicit for TV. After a strange disappearance, a trail of gruesome evidence, and an international manhunt, it became clear that his fairy tale love story would never have its happy ending.
