    The Wet Bandit

    The Wet Bandit

    Brook Baker was a small town girl with big dreams. She wanted to be an investigative journalist and wasnt afraid to dig deep and expose truth. Until the day she was found brutally murdered in her off campus apartment in 1997. Despite DNA evidence, her murder remained unsolved until almost 2 years later when another college student, Erika Norman, was also murdered in a very similar way. The two girls never knew each other in life, but are forever connected in death by their tragic murders at the hands of Brian Jones. Join us in the closet this week for this awful and sad story of two young lives, and how their murdered was caught by a bathtub.

It turns out, James was not what he seemed, and despite all Tiana's attempts to get help from law enforcement, nothing could stop James's darkness. Join us in the closet this week for this very frustrating story of systematic law enforcement failures that result in a tragic murder.
