The Mind Over Murder true crime podcast grew out of Bill Thomas and Kristin Dilley's goal of building on their advocacy in the Colonial Parkway Murders. Each week, they interview top true crime experts and discuss unsolved cases and how to move those cases forward. Their highly engaged podcast audience adds tips and questions to the discussion. Kristin and Bill successfully mix in a few lighthearted moments to balance the serious talk.
Bill is a true crime podcaster and entertainment executive, now living in Connecticut. Sadly, he is the brother of a murder victim. His sister Cathy Thomas, along with her girlfriend Rebecca Dowski, were the first two victims in the Colonial Parkway Murders, which claimed the lives of eight young people near Williamsburg, Virginia from 1986 to 1989. Kristin is a podcaster, researcher, writer, and teacher from Virginia. After losing a friend to homicide, she developed an interest in true crime and has become a passionate advocate for the families of unsolved murder victims.
Since the launch of Mind Over Murder, our community of listeners have proven to be a loyal following, building our growing social media and traditional presence. We are now celebrating our 4th season with 250 episodes and more than ONE MILLION downloads of Mind Over Murder.
Bill Thomas and Kristin Dilley's advocacy has led to a national true crime television series, "Lovers Lane Murders" on the Oxygen Network, as well as feature stories in the Washington Post, the Daily Press, HuffPo, the Daily News, Medium, the Daily Beast, Public Radio's 1A, Norfolk Now, and Williamsburg Daily, with extensive quotes in the New York Times , appearances on Access Hollywood, Doctor Oz, Fox News, Dateline NBC online, multiple live appearances at CrimeCon, and scores of appearances on true crime podcasts.
I’m really enjoying this podcast. I appreciate the calm, factual and rational approach the hosts take to the subject matter, especially given how difficult it must be. Don’t miss the it; they’re performing a great service.

Bill and Kristen have a great rapport, although the topic at hand is often dark and tragic the show is informative but still has room for a little lightheartedness at times.
