Justice Facts reveals the dark drama behind real-life criminal cases.
Peabody Award-Winning investigative reporter Robert Riggs and decorated former federal prosecutor Bill Johnston shed new light on true crime cases that have faded from memory.
For over four decades, this duo has been up close and personal with serial killers, mass murderers, sexual predators, and terrorists. You name it, and they’ve seen it from the crime scene to the courtroom, to prison, even the Texas death chamber.
The cohosts of Justice Facts are compelling storytellers. Riggs spent decades in front of the television news camera and Johnston won guilty verdicts in front of more than three hundred federal juries.
Riggs and Johnston give listeners a perspective that they would never experience on their own.
Truth is stranger than fiction.
That’s what this podcast is all about, Just the Facts.
Riggs and Johnston are featured in the first season of the newly released True Crime Reporter™ podcast for their roles in bringing to justice the worst sadistic, sexual, serial killer in Texas’ history.
