    The Attempted Murder & Disappearance of Martha Martinez Maxwell

    The Attempted Murder & Disappearance of Martha Martinez Maxwell

    In April of 1987, authorities in Carter County, Oklahoma found a Watauga, Texas woman on the side of the highway barely clinging to life. She was bound with duct tape, severely beaten, and covered in the blood that had poured from the slit in her throat. The woman was Martha Martinez Maxwell. After doctors at Dallas’s Parkland Hospital saved her life, she dropped charges on the man who’d left her for dead 100 miles from home – her husband, Jeffrey Allan Maxwell. The man, too, manipulated Martha into reconciling with him. Five years later, Martha went missing under suspicious circumstances. And Jeffrey Allan Maxwell’s further crimes, at least some of them, landed him in prison for life 20 years later. The man is suspected, too, in other unsolved Texas disappearances and homicides.

    The Cold-Blooded Slaying of Paula Jean Davenport

    On April 25th, 1978, 25-year-old Paula Jean Davenport left home to go bowling with her company’s league. She never made it into the Brunswick Bowlerland, however, and never made it back home. Paula’s parents reported her missing to police but was found a couple days later by another jurisdiction, deceased from gunshot wounds. A suspect emerged quickly but Fort Worth Police were ultimately unable to collect the evidence against the individual they needed to get an indictment. Though they were sure they had the right suspect, Paula Davenport’s murder remains unsolved.

    Mysteries of Boerne, Texas Part 2: The Deaths of Nichol, Alexa, and London & The Killing of Beth Hicks

    Mysteries of Boerne, Texas Part 2: The Deaths of Nichol, Alexa, and London & The Killing of Beth Hicks

    In January of 2019, in far south Boerne, Texas, a Bexar County 911 dispatcher received a call. There’d been a suicide, the caller said. Three people – Nichol Olsen and her daughters Alexa and London – were shot to death in a home belonging to Nichol’s boyfriend. The deaths were later ruled a murder-suicide but as friends of Nichol Olsen began speaking out, that ruling became questionable. The Bexar County Sheriff agreed. Fifteen years prior to those deaths, in 2004, probation officer Beth Hicks was killed outside her home just beyond the Boerne city limits as she left for work – struck in the head with a blunt object. Though the probationers she supervised were scrutinized, over 100 of them, Kendall County Sheriff’s Officer could never identify a suspect.

    If someone you love is diagnosed with cancer you want them to get the best treatment from the best doctors. In 2013, patients in Michigan thought Farid Fata was that doctor.

From Wondery, this is the story of hundreds of patients in Michigan, a doctor, and a poisonous secret.

    Laura Beil returns with a second season of the award-winning series “Dr Death.”
