Matthew Breck

In September 1998, 10-year-old Anna Palmer was murdered outside her home in Salt Lake City after walking home from a friend’s house. There were reports of a strange man harassing young girls in her neighborhood, but no arrests were made. Over a decade later, advancements in DNA testing finally identified Anna’s killer, a dangerous criminal who was already in prison for another crime against a child. 

Join Mike and Gibby as they discuss killer Matthew Breck. Breck was 19 years old when he murdered Anna Palmer in 1998, but he got away with it for over a decade. Skins cells under Anna's fingernails were finally matched to Breck, who was in prison on a 10-year-old sentence for a crime against a child under 16. As it turned out, Breck lived only a block from Anna back when she was killed, but police never even talked to him.

    The part where he mentions that he wants to be adopted by a more functional family even at 45 yrs really hits home. Really delineates how no matter how old and independent you are, you still need love and support.

    I find these weekly podcasts to be super inspirational, they seem to always motivate me to look at my purpose. Matt not only brings in his personal life experiences but he delivers them in such a way that they are relatable.
