    When the Devil Came to Gilmer: The Disappearance of Kelly Dae Wilson Part 1

    When the Devil Came to Gilmer: The Disappearance of Kelly Dae Wilson Part 1

    On the night of Sunday, January 5th, 1992 in the small town of Gilmer, Texas 17-year-old Kelly Dae Wilson vanished without a trace. With virtually no clues and fewer leads the investigation moved slow, but it certainly wasn’t for the lack of effort on the part of Kelly’s family, a diligent Gilmer Police Sergeant named James York Brown, and Upshur County Sheriff Buck Cross. One of the first leads came when 20-year-old Angela Hammond disappeared 500 miles north of Gilmer in Clinton, Missouri, but it fizzled out fast. After that, the investigation into the disappearance of Kelly Dae Wilson took a series of turns for the worse, including red herrings and a bad case of Satanic Panic. Part 1 of 3.

    Small Town Double Murder: Antonio & Luz Rodriguez

    Small Town Double Murder: Antonio & Luz Rodriguez

    The small town of Cleveland, Texas averages only one murder per year. 2005, however, was no ordinary year. In April, while still grieving the loss of a close loved one who was brutally slain just months before, Luz & Antonio Rodriguez’s lives, too, were taken in a senseless and savage act. Both 80-year-old Antonio and 77-year-old Luz were well loved in Cleveland, where they’d lived for decades. With absolutely no clear motive, Cleveland Police Detectives struggled to find answers.

    Introducing My Fugitive

    Introducing My Fugitive

    Nina Gilden Seavey was twelve on May 5, 1970, the day an Air Force building in St. Louis burned to the ground. Her dad represented a young man accused of the crime: Howard Mechanic.

    This eight-part series is the tangled story of her search for answers. Hundreds of Freedom of Information requests. Hundreds of thousands of pages of documents. FBI surveillance and confidential informants. Cold War spies, conspiracy theories and the murder of a civil rights icon. And the sacrifices America makes in the name of national security.

    The Savage Murder of John Godfrey in Victoria Part 2

    The Savage Murder of John Godfrey in Victoria Part 2

    When John Godfrey’s body was found down a rural road just outside the Victoria city limits on Tuesday, December 7th, 1976 it changed the town for many. Not only was John’s the third unsolved murder that year but his slaying was also especially brutal, the work of a depraved and heartless killer. The Victoria County Sheriff’s Department, who had jurisdiction for the murder, said they were conducting a comprehensive investigation. That investigation, however, went nowhere. When a recently released convict was arrested and charged for an attempted murder that happened a couple months before John Godfrey was killed, he became, according to some, the cops’ suspect number one. But is the guy called Sugar Bear really responsible? Part 2 of 2.
