    3.36 The Cesspool Murders

    3.36 The Cesspool Murders

    “The blood from that cushion cries out for justice, but it also cries out for you to make sure this boy spilled that blood.” This was the chilling plea during Al Mosely’s closing arguments as he was defending 20 year old Herbert Hoover Gentry. Gentry, who was born partially deaf and mute, was on trial for killing his wife.

    3.35 The Murder of Helen Weaver

    3.35 The Murder of Helen Weaver

    In 1955 every citizen of central Texas had their eyes locked on the trial of Harry L. Washburn. Partly due to the salacious details surrounding his crime and who his victim was. And partly because it was the first murder trial they could watch from the comfort of their own homes.

    3.34 The Poet Murderess of Mississippi

    3.34 The Poet Murderess of Mississippi

    “Down in a lonely graveyard, 
    Where the flowers bloom and fade,
    There lies my darling sleeping 
    In a cold and silent grave.”
    At first blush, these words sound like the sorrowful words of someone who has lost the love of their life too soon. In reality, this is the confession of a murder that turned the state of Mississippi upside down.

Haunt enthusiast ,

Episode 7 season 7, The Drish house

We enjoy your program very much. My family has been to Africa, we heard how you said that the enslaved people built all of the nice houses in the south, if they came up with the architecture how do they not have the Greek revival and the Italian renaissance in Africa?

cool nichelle ,

margiemugs ,
