How a Tight-Knit Community is Forever Changed

In episode eighth and final episode of The Springfield Three, we look at Springfield now--nearly 30 years after the disappearance of Stacy, Suzie, and Sherrill, and I work to unpack how this has affected an entire community. These were three women, beloved by so many, that had so much in front of them. And there is a common narrative in this case. It kept coming up. In fact, I?d find that in almost every interview that I conducted, I?d hear the same thing. ?Things Like This Just Don?t Happen In Springfield Missouri.? But it did--and here?s what?s happening now.

The Questions That Remain

In episode seven of The Springfield Three, we dive into questions that remain. Because, really, there are so many questions. First and maybe most importantly, why and who would want to do this to Stacy, Suzie, and Sherrill? How did the perpetrator manage to get three healthy women out of the house with very little, if no, sign of struggle? How did three women just disappear? I?ll talk with local law enforcement and journalists to go over different scenarios and try to uncover the questions that remain.

What Went Wrong in the Investigation?

On episode six of the Springfield Three we uncover what went wrong in the investigation. To be perfectly clear, there are a lot of folks in Springfield?s law enforcement that want nothing more than to solve this case.

And then there?s the scene of the disappearance...

Serial Killers and Potential Suspects

In episode five of The Springfield Three, we look at some of the potential suspects that emerge in this case. We talk about Steve Garrison, who is serving 40 years in prison for raping, sodomizing, and terrorizing a female college student in Springfield, Missouri in the summer of 1993, just a year after the three women went missing. There?s Larry DeWayne Hall, a serial killer and Civil War buff who traveled to the area often. Also, Gerald Carnahan, who murdered beauty-queen Jackie Johns from Nixa, Missouri?just a few minutes outside of Springfield. And finally, there?s Robert Craig Cox, a convicted murderer who claims to know exactly where the three women are buried?but won?t reveal this until his own mother dies.
