NEVADA, USA — Park Ranger Mike Meyer patrolled the not-so-tranquil waters of Lake Mead during the go-go ‘80s, a time of cocaine, powerboats and mob hits.

Welcome to "BLAME: The Fear All These Years," a true-crime podcast produced by the 9NEWS investigative team, 9Wants to Know.
We’re telling the story of a series of hammer attacks in the Denver area in January 1984 that left four people dead …
Attacks that terrified a community …
And investigations that were ice cold for decades before a breakthrough in 2018 that led to the identification of a suspect.
