Trial and true-crime network Law&Crime has launched an investigative podcast series with crypto journalist Laura Shin. A former Forbes crypto editor, author of The Cryptopians, and host of the Unchained podcast, Shin will explore the case of Heather Morgan and Ilya Lichtenstein. The married couple, also known as the “Bonnie and Clyde” of crypto, have been accused of attempting to launder $4.5 billion worth of Bitcoin after being arrested in their Manhattan home.

Host Shin will walk listeners through the entire story, beginning with Morgan and Lichtenstein’s relationship and how they allegedly attempted to launder $4.5 billion worth of Bitcoin stolen from Hong Kong’s Bitfinex, one of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges. Shin will also take listeners deep into the investigation, utilizing her extensive network of sources in the crypto world to dive into what ultimately led to their arrest.

“I’m thrilled to be partnering with Law&Crime to tell this tale about stolen Bitcoin with the depth and level of detail it deserves,” said Shin. “It will be a fascinating journey not only into the lives of this couple that has already captivated the internet, but into how blockchain sleuthing enabled the government to track them down.”

“We are excited to partner with Laura Shin, who will bring her incredible level of expertise into this wild story about crime, technology, and social media,” said Rachel Stockman, Law&Crime’s President. “This story has all of the elements to keep true crime junkies on the edge of their seats and we could think of no one better than Laura to break it all down.”
