    Mean Man

    Mean Man

    The school bus is usually a mode of transportation we associate with the word “safe.” Most of our memories riding the school bus as youth are attributed to laughs, field-trips, & fun- but for some kids, the school bus doesn’t represent any of those things. For a select unlucky few, the school bus represents something much worse. A darkness that most of us will never be able to fully comprehend. Yet, the children aboard school bus 0-42 in Midland City, AL back in 2013 are among those who certainly do know what it's like to be a target of a random, violent crime. These children know what it's like to have their lives put in extreme danger, unexpectedly, while riding that big yellow machine. The savage act that happened inside the 24,000lb transporter holding 10+ kids would come out of nowhere, by the hands of one crazed neighbor. A person locals only knew only as, “mean man,”...when he stormed the bus just after 3 p.m. with a handwritten list of demands, a fist full of zip ties, and a loaded 9mm handgun...

    Dirty Little Secret

    Dirty Little Secret

    On November 18th, 2012, 13-year-old Dylan Redwine traveled to Durango, Colorado for a court ordered visit with his father. After getting off of the plane, Dylan’s father Mark told the young teenager he had to run errands early the next morning. This prompted Dylan to make plans to meet with a friend early in the morning before his dad left the house. When Mark awoke the next morning, Dylan was still asleep on the couch, but when he returned home, his son was nowhere to be found. All calls and texts to his son went unanswered, and his friends stated they hadn’t seen or heard from Dylan. As the hours passed, Mark became increasingly concerned as he lived in a rugged, mountainous area. The days quickly turned into weeks and eventually months, until Dylan’s remains were recovered on a rural mountain road just 8 miles from his father’s home. After his death was ruled a homicide, investigators were made aware that the young teenager had discovered and confronted his father about some compromising information his brother had found on the computer the year prior. But was this allegedly devout father really willing to kill his son over his dirty little secret?

    Black Christmas

    Black Christmas

    On Christmas Eve of 2013, Patricia Burns of Lake Luzerne, NY would face the wrath of her  crazed ex-husband - a violent offender she had been trying to evade for years. When Clifford Burns, a man with failed aspirations of once becoming a U.S. Marine, decided to go hunting dressed in full camouflage, his targets would not be sitting ducks or deer in the Adirondack Mountains. Instead, his prey would be his own daughters & estranged wife when he came barging through their front door armed with a long serrated blade and a thirst for revenge over what he viewed as unfair child support practices.

    700 Days (Part Two)

    700 Days (Part Two)

    (Part 2/2) No one lives forever. We’re all familiar with the cliché, “life is short.” But have you ever wondered just exactly how short? Have you ever considered the manner in which you might leave this earth when it’s your time to go? Death by fire, drowning, or being shot & killed are only some of the greatest fears held by many that have contemplated their own mortality. It’s very rare that these worst case scenarios will ever play out in real life...but the frightening truth is, that they sometimes do. In August of 2015, 31 year-old ex-beauty queen Judy Malinowski would be a victim of such unexpected & horrific events...when she was burned alive by her abusive boyfriend at a Speedway gas station in Gahanna, OH. Death is inevitable for all of us...but when drugs, homelessness, & domestic violence are the major components of an individual’s environment...one can only hope they’re able to make it out, before it’s too late…


     


    **Trigger Warning** This case includes graphic depictions of domestic violence and murder. If you or someone you know are experiencing domestic abuse or violence. Get help. Call 1-800-799-SAFE (7233). 


     


    Written by Michael Dunphy Jr., Executive Produced by Michael Ojibway. A special thank you to Bonnie Bowes for her generosity in time and spirit, and for participating in an exclusive interview with Invisible Choir regarding her daughter Judy’s murder.

    Superiority Complex

    Superiority Complex

    In July of 2013, 59 year-old Charles Parker and his wife, 51 year-old Gretchen Parker, were found brutally murdered inside their Jonesville, South Carolina home. Police couldn’t seem to make sense of who might want the couple dead... until researching their backgrounds. A lot of us have skeletons in our closets- some darker than others- but the secrets Charles Parker was hiding were beyond anyone’s comprehension. They say the past will always come back to haunt you...but it’s the person, or “persons” who came to meet the Parker’s at their own front door that would leave police speechless... and the small rural Union County community reeling in a storm of deceit, murder, and corruption.
