New York, NY – January 2, 2024 – Sony Music Entertainment and Campside Media today announced the new season premiere of Cover Up: Body Brokers, an investigative podcast detailing how a small-town funeral homeowner and her elderly mother forged their way into the shadowy world of body dealing. Body Brokers is the third season of the Cover Up series, which tells stories about powerful people who pull off shocking cons. The first episode is available today, and subscribers to The Binge can listen to all episodes now.
Hosted by investigative reporter Ashley Fantz, Body Brokers brings you inside an economy where bodies are bought and sold for big bucks. This season takes place in tiny Montrose, Colorado, where we meet Megan Hess and her mother Shirley Koch, who run Sunset Mesa Funeral Home. In Body Brokers, host Fantz unveils their depraved shocking scheme: they offered steep discounts on cremation and gave families bogus ashes while they secretly dismembered the bodies and sold them to medical companies claiming to do research. And Fantz introduces you to their many victims who, despite profound trauma, fought back and got justice.
“Cover Up: Body Brokers details how a small-town hero and her elderly mother got away with one of the most disturbing crimes I’ve ever come across,” said host Ashley Fantz. “We unpack Megan and Shirley’s complex scheme and their victims’ long quest for justice.”
Cover Up: Body Brokers is produced by Sony Music Entertainment and Campside Media, in association with Black Bar Mitzvah. Ashley Fantz is investigative reporter and host.
