Esteemed journalist and former CNN and HLN anchor Carol Costello navigates the emotional complexities of the 1984 Phyllis Cottle case, expressing anger and bewilderment as the Ohio Innocence Project challenges the conviction. In her latest podcast series, Carol Costello Presents: Blind Rage, produced by Evergreen Podcasts, Costello revisits the brutal attack in Akron, Ohio, and the subsequential conviction of Samuel J. Herring for charges including kidnapping, rape, aggravated robbery, felonious sexual assault, aggravated arson, and attempted murder.

In the podcast’s latest episodes, "Update: The Unthinkable" and "Update: DNA Results | 'I'm a Gun Man,'" Costello presents the irrefutable details outlined by Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh. Forensic scientists have now solidified a conclusive 1 in 1-trillion match, definitively linking the DNA discovered on Phyllis Cottle's clothing to Samuel J. Herring and affirming him as the assailant. 

Phyllis Cottle's family, while relieved the case is over, issues a cautionary statement urging the Ohio Innocence Project and media partners to exercise better due diligence in future cases, considering the impact on victims' families.

In the wake of these revelations, Carol Costello remains committed to providing a platform for exploring complex true-crime narratives and their implications for the justice system.
