    The Raccoon Bend Murders

    The Raccoon Bend Murders

    This week I discuss the Raccoon Bend Murders. Raccoon Bend is nestled in between Austin and Houston, with a population of about 500. Violent crime such as these murders, are rare in Raccoon Bend. Four bodies found on top of each other in the back bedroom of a trailer house. Is this a rare random crime, or a targeted murder. And who do you believe was the intended target?

    Darlie Routier - Part 1

    Darlie Routier - Part 1

    Darlie Routier is sitting on death row for killing her two young boys, although she has only been officially charged with one of their murders. In part 1 we discuss the crime scene, the injuries, and blood evidence. Darlie has always maintained her innocence. Did the Court get this one right?

    The wine today comes from our friends at Cascabel Ranch Winery. We are sipping on a delicious Copperhead Red. Chris paired this red with a Bistecca alla Florentina topped with tuscan style mushroom and sun dried tomato cream sauce and tuscan inspired cannellini beans. Also a arugula baby spinach salad topped with a citrus vinaigrette. Recipe will be up on Patreon this week.

    Andrea Yates - Part 2

    Andrea Yates - Part 2

    In Part 2 we talk about the victims, the trial, the husband, the spiritual adviser, and the best friend. The 911 call Andrea made was monotone and matter of fact. This case is a tragedy no matter if you hate her for what she did, or you feel sorry for her. She is living in a mental facility in Kerrville, TX and will most likely spend the rest of her life there. 

    If you or someone you know if suffering, please reach out and get the help you need. You are not alone.

    Andrea Yates - Part 1 (Houston, TX)

    Andrea Yates - Part 1 (Houston, TX)

    This week we are discussing Andrea Yates. Andrea drowned all 5 of her children after her husband Rusty left for work. Andrea was diagnosed with postpartum psychosis, schizophrenia, and depression after the birth of their fourth child. Going against everything doctors and psychiatrists suggested, they had child number 5. Six months later, she killed all of her kids. This is the tragic story of 5 children whose lives could have been saved if only just one things would've been done right.

    This week Chris gave Tumbleweed Smith a treat with his charcuterie board. We enjoyed wine from Edge of the Lake Vineyard and Sangria from our friends at Hill Country Wine Works. We polished them both off with smiling faces and full bellies. Go see our friends Edge of the Lake & Hill Country Wine Works.

❤️ Texas True Crime 💙

I love listening to stories about crimes in Texas, especially in the North Texas area. I love the conversational story telling and wine recommendations. It’s always fun to hear the 3 little random facts about the area you’re talking about. The one criticism that I have is kind of personal, but I can’t possibly be the only one that feels this way. The sound of drinking/eating is like nails on a chalkboard for me. I struggle to listen to the wine rating segment, but I can handle it since I know it’s inevitable during that segment. But when it happens during the story, it makes me twitchy. 🤪 Overall, this is one of my top favorites and I will continue to listen in the future.
