The Yellow Car 

KGW launched a new, true crime podcast in July 2021 called "The Yellow Car." It focuses on the case of Effie Entezari. 

The daycare owner and mother of two from Vancouver was shot to death just outside of her apartment in 1989. A man was arrested and served 16 years in prison for the crime. But Effie’s daughter, Pooneh Gray, is convinced police got the wrong man. She’s spent 31 years and over a million dollars tailing the people she believes organized a hit on her mother. 

The podcast is produced by the same team behind the award-winning true crime podcast Urge to Kill.
