    The Mysterious & Suspicious Death of Dr. George Chronis

    The Mysterious & Suspicious Death of Dr. George Chronis

    In May of 2018, after having problems with the caretaker of his Rains County, Texas ranch, 57-year-old George Chronis headed down from his home in suburban Chicago, Illinois to handle the situation. It wasn’t just a business trip though; the overworked doctor with multiple Sclerosis also sought a break from the stress of life as an obstetrician / gynecologist. He hadn’t been at the ranch for three years, so he was shocked to arrive and find that the bunkhouse there had been inhabited by someone unknown. After calling his wife and discussing the situation, the bunkhouse burned to the ground and George was found dead...but not from injuries that resulted from the fire. To this day, more than two years later, what happened to Dr. George Chronis remains a mystery.

    Shallow Grave: The Slaying of Helen Dawn Williams

    Shallow Grave: The Slaying of Helen Dawn Williams

    In October 1993, Thurgood Marshall School of Law student Dawn Williams vanished without so much as a trace. Fellow students, friends, and family searched everywhere but no clues were found. Houston Police, too, failed to find anything at all. The following month, a crew cleaning trash from an area in rural Montgomery County found the 25-year-old women’s body buried in a shallow grave, partially unearthed by animals. Police, and especially Dawn’s father, had a good idea what happened to her and who did it, but evidence has eluded investigators for nearly 27 years.

    The Murder of Lecia Ann McGee Part 2: The Suspect

    The Murder of Lecia Ann McGee Part 2: The Suspect

    A suspect finally emerged in the January 1978 slaying of seventeen-year-old Lecia Ann McGee in 2009 – more than 30 years later. DNA linked the man to Lecia’s brutal death, but the Tarrant County District Attorney declined to bring the case before a grand jury, siting insufficient evidence as the reason. Fort Worth Homicide Detectives disagreed. Was the man a suspect in the initial 1978 investigation, when he was just a teenager, or did detectives then make a an unforgivable mistake by disregarding him as such?

    The Murder of Lecia Ann McGee Part 1: Cold & Deadly Night

    The Murder of Lecia Ann McGee Part 1: Cold & Deadly Night

    January 1978 was an unusually cold month in Fort Worth, Texas. Though the city would brag about falling murder rates that year, when it was all said and done, the year was just as deadly as many before it...and even more to come. One of the many homicides the city had seen in 1978 was the unthinkable killing of seventeen-year-old Lecia Ann McGee, a well-liked teenager who didn’t make enemies. Though the brutality of her killing seemed personal, that motive was highly unlikely, and the case was more or less cold from the moment her body was discovered. Decades would pass before a viable suspect emerged but evidence against him, the Tarrant County District Attorney said, was slim to none.

Stop the Music!

The music is intrusive and unnecessary. The podcast would benefit from much less of it.
