131: The Alabama Axe Murderess

In June of 1959, the torsos of two men were found in a rural part of northeast Alabama. The gruesome discoveries sparked a media firestorm as locals feared they had a mad man stalking their homes. These kind of gruesome murders just didn?t happen in rural areas where folks didn?t even lock their doors at night.

A three week investigation led law enforcement to a desolate farm, in Rabbittown, a small community in the tiny town of White Plains.

A 30 year old woman named Viola Hyatt lived there with her elderly father and stepmother. Viola was soon arrested and the press went wild. Why would a shy, 30 year old woman kill two men and hack their bodies into pieces?

Introducing: Suspect from Wondery

A big Halloween party at an apartment complex in Redmond, Washington. Themed rooms and costumed partygoers. But by the end of the party, one of the hosts is dead. The police look to the partiers as the prime suspects: was it the guy in the devil mask, the bank robber, the construction worker?

As investigators comb through forensic evidence, witness testimony, DNA, and even consult with a psychic, they zero in on one suspect in particular. But for what reason? Host and reporter Matthew Shaer (Over My Dead Body) returns to the scene of the crime, speaks with everyone about a night that still haunts them years later.

It?s a series about race and policing, mislaid justice, cutting-edge science, and the kinds of weighty choices that cops and prosecutors make every day -- choices that, once made, are difficult to reverse.

128: The Belinda Temple Case, Part 2: The Trials of David Temple

After the brutal murder of Belinda Temple, an 8 month pregnant school teacher in 1999, the Harris County DA?s office took five years to finally charge her husband, David, with murder. They had an ace in the hole. They had star prosecutor Kelley Siegler. But David Temple?s family hired Dick DeGuerin, the guy who got Robert Durst off after he dismembered his landlord. The trial had the promised fireworks but afterwards, Kelly Siegler was accused of prosecutorial misconduct. So David Temple went to trial for a second time, 20 years after his wife was murdered. Will Belinda Temple and her unborn daughter ever get justice?

127: The Belinda Temple Case, Part 1: The Husband

In January of 1999, 30 year old Belinda Temple, who was eight months pregnant, was found shot to death in her closet in Katy, Texas. Her husband, David Temple, was the obvious first suspect. But there wasn?t much evidence to connect him to the murder and he was seen on store cameras during the suspected time of the murder. But he had the oldest motive in the world. And Harris County DA?s Office would take almost five years to finally bring charges against him. The complicated legal wranglings and clash of two courtroom titans made this case a national sensation. And sometimes the very real woman, Belinda Temple, and her unborn daughter, Erin, are forgotten in the sensationalism. This is part 1 of 2 episodes.

A prominent southern family made their mark in Memphis, Tennessee and the tiny town of Horseshoe Lake, Arkansas with descendents dating back to the Civil War. Known for their philanthropy as much as their prosperity, the Snowden family were pillars of their community.

124: Teenage Double Murderer: Nathan Callahan

1994, a 15 year old boy did the unthinkable. He ambushed his mother and younger sister and shot them to death. All because he was angry over being grounded. He planned their murders, and 3 more family members for weeks before the ambush. And most of it was caught on a recording device on his home phone. But still, the question remains, at 15 years old, was Nathan Callahan old enough to be held responsible for his actions.

122: The Bishop's Son & The Senator's Daughter: The Murder of Vickie Lander Beckham

In June of 1994, a car was found in a ditch on a deserted stretch of Little Mountain Road in Newberry, South Carolina. A woman was found slumped over the steering wheel. Though the road was in a rural area thick with woods and steep ravines, where accidents often happen, police immediately suspected foul play. The woman, named Vickie Lander Beckham, had horrific injuries to her face and neck that could not have come from such a minor accident. Soon law enforcement discovered that Vickie, a senator?s daughter, and her husband Stephen, son of an Episcopal Bishop, were in the middle of a divorce. The investigation became scandalous front page news with the powerful men in each family caught up in the drama.

118: The Murder of Olivia Browning

In late November of 1989, the burning body of a 33 year old woman was found in a wooded area in the Mississippi Delta. Olivia Browning was the ex-wife of a prominent planter?s son named Ralph Hand III. Local gossips said that though Ralph and Olivia divorced, they had a passionate but toxic relationship and couldn?t stay away from each other.

After Ralph confessed, and the media gushed about this southern gothic soap opera, to the detriment of Olivia?s character. Did public perception as well as the Hand family?s political connections influence the justice Olivia?s family received?

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.

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)

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.

110: It's Always the Husband: The Michael Morton Story

In 1986, a young mother was brutally murdered in her Austin, Texas home, early in the morning, while still sleeping in her bed. Her husband had left for work at 5:30am. Her three year old son was left alone in the house. Unfortunately, the night before, her husband had become disappointed when his wife had been too tired to make love. Michael Morton loved his wife, but he left a note for her that would definitely sting any wife. And based mainly on that note alone, corrupt investigators made sure he spent 25 years in prison for the murder of his wife, Christine Kirkpatrick Morton.

109: The Bloody Bruces

In the late 80?s and early 90?s, one family of brothers terrorized the Benton County area of northwest Tennessee. The Bruce brothers had rap sheets but the local sheriff could rarely make charges stick because the family intimidated anyone in the community who dared to defy them. In 1991, they were suspected in a double murder and arson but it would take a federal task force to convince witnesses to come forward. The Bloody Bruces and their equally evil matriarch, Kathleen, would continue to terrorize their community even from behind bars as they awaited trial.

In late 2018, a privileged 29 year old man from Chuluota, Florida became obsessed with a Bulgarian webcam model. Grant Amato still lived at home with his parents and older brother, Cody.

106: Terror in Sellerstown, North Carolina

A new pastor came to Sellerstown, North Carolina in 1969 with his wife to lead a small congregation and lay down roots for his family. From 1972 to 1976, the pastor, his wife and their two small children were terrorized with bombings and shootings. A powerful man named Horry Watts acted as the small town kingpin of Sellerstown. And he was out for vengeance when Reverend Nicols pushed him out of his church?s affairs. His campaign of terror would culminate with the murder of one member of the Nicols family. But the enduring legacy of the pastor and his wife is forgiveness.

97: Abraham Shakespeare: Heart of Gold

In 2006, a man named Abraham Shakespeare won Florida?s $31 Million Dollar Lottery. Poor and illiterate, Abraham took the lump sum pay out without any financial advisors helping him. First he took care of his family and friends. Then he started helping strangers. Soon, he was so harassed by his community asking him for money, he isolated himself. And was he no match for a grifter named Dee Dee Moore who quickly manipulated him and took over his life.

95: Georgia Tann: Pedophile, Kidnapper & Inventor of Modern Adoption

In 1926, a woman named Georgia Tann began running the Memphis branch of the Tennessee Children?s Home Society. Soon, Georgia began selling babies and children on the black market, often out of state. And as demand for children grew, she began kidnapping infants and even older children. While she is dubiously credited with normalizing adoption at a time that it was stigmatized, her real legacy is creating closed adoptions. She also left a legacy of horrific physical, emotional and sexual abuse of the children in her care.

94: The Poisoner & The Undercover Detective

In 1988, 41 year old mother, Peggy Carr, suddenly became very ill with mysterious symptoms. After she was hospitalized, doctors could not determine what was causing her so much pain and paralyzing the formerly healthy woman. They suspected poison and brought in the police. Soon, her son and step-son fell ill, with the same symptoms, as Peggy slipped into a coma and then died. Investigators zeroed in on their suspect but did not have enough evidence to charge him or even get a search warrant. Enter a female undercover detective named Susan Goreck. She risked her life getting close to the poisoner and bringing down the sinister and yet unassuming man who almost destroyed an entire family.

In Clear Lake, Texas, in the fall of 2002, two beautiful girls decided to befriend an outcast. Christine Paolilla suffered from Alopecia, a condition where most, if not all our hair falls out. She was lonely, and often wore garish makeup and Halloween wigs. Rachael and Tiffany helped her buy new, more flattering wigs and showed her how to properly apply makeup. But they were a year ahead of her, graduated, and Christine reunited with a boyfriend who had been jailed with a felony. Within three months, teeming with envy and jealousy, Christine and her boyfriend would do the unthinkable.

91: The Sherry Murders, The Dixie Mafia & Corruption in Biloxi

In 1987, a circuit court judge and his wife, a former city council woman, who wanted to be mayor, were murdered in their home in Biloxi, Mississippi. It was obviously a professional hit. Vincent Sherry was a former criminal defense attorney who had defended members of the Dixie Mafia. Now, he was putting criminals away. Margaret Sherry was a fiery republican in a public slap fight with the current democratic mayor. She wanted to clean up the Biloxi strip of seedy night clubs and gambling, which of course, the Dixie Mafia ran. And she wanted to expose corruption in city hall.

Who was the real target? It was a conspiracy that would take four years and the determination of their oldest daughter to unravel.
