    115: The Desperate Housewife & The Closet Killer

    115: The Desperate Housewife & The Closet Killer

    In April of 2005, a “desperate housewife” banged on her neighbor’s door and said her husband had been murdered. She claimed the man who killed him was still in the house. It didn’t take investigators long to figure out that the wife, Martha Freeman, knew the mystery man who had killed her husband. She had been hiding him in her closet.

    114: Teenage Annihilation: The Duke Murders

    114: Teenage Annihilation: The Duke Murders

    In 1997, the small city of Pelham, Alabama was shocked by the brutal quadruple murder of a family. The victims, Randy Duke and Dedra Hunt were engaged to be married, and Dedra’s six year old daughter, Chelisa, and seven year daughter, Chelsea spent their weekends with the couple. Police at first thought it was a triple murder/suicide but soon learned it was an even more senseless and horrific crime.

    112: The Horrific Murder of Jessica Currin

    112: The Horrific Murder of Jessica Currin

    On August 1, 2000, the body of a young black woman was found behind a middle school in Mayfield, Kentucky. The new mother, 18 year old Jessica Currin, was found partially clothed, badly burned and already decomposing. The incompetence of local police doomed the case from the beginning. The Kentucky State police and then the KBI eventually took over the investigation. But it took a local homemaker, an amateur sleuth named Susan Galbreath, to finally make a break in the case.

    111: The Real Garden of Good and Evil

    111: The Real Garden of Good and Evil

    In 1994, a New York writer released a very southern gothic, non-fiction, crime novel. “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil” became a national sensation. John Berendt’s seductive prose and his cast of eccentric characters drew readers into the lush culture of Savannah, Georgia. But the central plot was a scandal from 1981. Semi-closeted socialite, Jim Williams, had shot his lover dead in the study of his home. He went through four trials for the murder of Danny Hanson, a record in Georgia at the time. Berendt’s book became a movie in 1997, directed by Clint Eastwood. Many people don’t know the real story of the Mercer House murder. This is a look at the case, as well as the book and movie that captivated the nation.

    8: #Justice4Andrew: The Suspicious Death of Andrew Lewis (2021 remaster/update)

    8: #Justice4Andrew: The Suspicious Death of Andrew Lewis (2021 remaster/update)

    The Death of Andrew Lewis -- a beloved musician is shot. His ex-girlfriend was a witness. The shooter, Eli Miller, was her date and he had been trying to assault Andrew all evening. Miller would claim it was self-defense. But how is shooting someone in the back of the head self-defense?

    *This is the annual rerelease of Andrew's episode. I wish there was an update, but sadly, there isn't. I will continue to release this episode on the anniversary of Andrew's death every year in the hopes that someone new listens. I know new listeners often skip old episodes, and the audio is not perfect on this one, but it is worth it. And if you feel the need to speak up, the contact info for the Montgomery DA's office is below.

    The Lewis family has lost hope in receiving justice for their beloved son and brother, but I intend to do everything I can to make sure this travesty of an investigation is not forgotten.

    Original Music featured on this episode: "Song for Me" - Written and recorded by Andrew Lewis. 

    Download Andrew's music for free. His family wants to share it with the world. He deserves to be heard. And so does his case.
