151 :The Murder of Mike Williams

In the early morning hours of December 16, 2000, 31 year old Mike Williams disappeared while duck hunting on Lake Seminole. Initially, authorities theorized he hit a stump, fell overboard, and drowned. Authorities searched for Mike, and over the course of 56 days, found his boat, jacket, and waders. But there was no sign of Mike anywhere, so authorities added to their theory: after drowning, Mike was eaten by alligators. Mike was officially declared dead, and his missing persons case was closed. But Mike?s mother Cheryl refused to believe the theory, and set out on a long journey for justice. 17 years later, authorities would find out Cheryl was right - Mike hadn?t been eaten by an alligator. He?d been murdered.

149: The Murder of Lorenzen Wright

On July 22, 2010, NBA star Lorenzen Wright was reported missing by his mother - he hadn?t been heard from since July 18. Days after the missing persons report was filed, a 911 dispatcher told their supervisor about a call they?d received just after midnight on July 19 - all they could hear was a man say ?goddamn?, then eleven gunshots. After tracing the location of the 911 call, authorities found Lorenzen?s body, heavily decomposed. His cause of death was multiple gunshot wounds from at least two guns. Who wanted the beloved Memphis hero dead and why? That?s a question detectives wouldn?t be able to answer for several years.

148: The Murder of Lance Herndon

Lance Herndon was a millionaire. He was also a successful black man in Atlanta in the 1990?s, a golden era for the black elite in what has long been hailed as the American black mecca and the city too busy to hate. Dubbed ?the black Jay Gatsby? by one author, Herndon rubbed shoulders with politicians and celebrities. And he used his money and power for philanthropy and gave back so much to his community. His brutal murder in the summer of 1996 was shocking and the investigation revealed a messy private life, unfairly staining the reputation of a hardworking, generous and self made man.

After her sons were brutally murdered, Darlie Routier was brought to the hospital with what looked like a very serious slash to her throat and was taken immediately into surgery. But her wounds were superficial. She was in the hospital less than 2 days. She and Darin buried their sons and to many people, acted very strangely. And they did it in front of the press they had invited to their sons graves.

Darlie would be arrested four days later.

138: The Case of the Norfolk Four

On July 8, 1997, a young sailor returned home after a week at sea, and found his wife dead in their bedroom. Michelle Moore-Bosco had been raped and murdered. Police quickly zeroed in on a neighbor who insisted he was innocent. But after 10 hours of coercive interrogation, he confessed. Six months later, when his DNA was not a match, police changed their theory of the crime. Now, instead of clearing the neighbor, they insisted he didn?t act alone. Over the next few months, police would claim up to 8 suspects had attacked Michelle. Four would actually be indicted. It would take over a decade to prove their innocence, even though police had a DNA match and confession from Michelle?s real killer.

At 3am on October 2, 1999, 74 year old Texas millionaire, Steven Beard called 911. Panicked and bewildered, he said ?My guts blew out of my stomach!?

Until one of them saw a shotgun shell on the floor.

Thus began the infamous case of Celeste Beard. Gold digger? Loving mother? Was she a victim or a murderer? Who is the real Celeste Beard?

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?

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.

126: The Snowden Murders

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. They were eccentric and fun-loving, but also duty bound to their family name and heritage. And then the same man, 24 years apart, wrought tragedy into their storied history.

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.

119: Neonaticide: The Lindsey Lowe Case

In September of 2011, a 25 year old woman from Hendersonville, TN, traveled to a wedding near her alma mater, Western Kentucky University. While at the wedding, she changed in front of the entire wedding party. And then posed for photos in a bridesmaid?s dress she had been fitted for 9 months earlier. No one noticed anything unusual about Lindsey Lowe?s appearance or behavior. But 2 days later, she would secretly give birth to twin babies in the bathroom she shared with her sister in her parents' home. She said she had a stomach virus and missed one day of work. And then she returned to her job as if nothing had happened. And then her mother went upstairs to start a load of laundry for Lindsey and was horrified at what she found in her laundry basket.

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?

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.
