Listen to all four parts of our 'Murder in Room 30: The Killing of Marie Wick' podcast

If you missed the stories last week, here are all four stories and podcasts in one place. Podcasts can also be found on Apple, Spotify and Amazon.

Murder in Room 30 - The Killing of Marie Wick is a four-part podcast which examines the 1921 slaying of a young woman in a downtown Fargo hotel.

Today, June 7, 2021, marks the 100th anniversary of one of the most brutal murders to happen in Fargo, followed by what was heralded as "the most sensational murder trial in North Dakota history."

Marie Wick, an 18-year-old from Grygla, Minn., was killed in a downtown Fargo hotel during her first trip away from home.

In the first of a four-part series and podcast, Tracy Briggs takes us through the twists and turns of the case in which justice might have come 20 years too late.


Check out Tracy's previous podcast, "The Turtle Lake Murders," about North Dakota's worst mass murder — just one year before the Wick murder.
