The podcast's name is an aspirational one: "Countdown to Capture." The capture part is what the Newport Beach Police Department hopes will result from the six-part series, which it is releasing in a bid to finally catch their man. Details:
- The crime: The Los Angeles Times reports officials have for years been trying to apprehend Peter Chadwick, a 54-year-old multimillionaire who lived in Newport Coast, Calif., and allegedly killed his wife, Quee Choo Chadwick. Her body was found in a gas station dumpster outside San Diego in 2012.
- The disappearance: Chadwick was arrested and released after posting a $1 million bail; he gave up his US and UK passports, made 13 court appearances, then vanished in 2015, per the AP. Chadwick is thought to have taken millions from bank accounts he had access to, and officials suspect he may have managed to leave the country.
