Episode 111 – The Gainesville Murders

0 Episode Rating

August 1990 – It was the beginning of a new academic year for University of Florida students. Thousands of young people, brimming with anticipation. Excited for new beginnings, classes, friends, and of course, football games.

But that summer there was someone new in the picturesque college town. Someone watching students through their bedroom windows at night, waiting for just the right moment to strike.

Introducing – Suspect

0 Episode Rating

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.

Episode 110 – J.P. & The Hawks

0 Episode Rating

Imagine sitting on the back deck of a yacht, soaking up Pacific sunshine off the coast of Mexico with a cold Margarita in one hand, and the love of your life in the other. No more work – just the pure bliss of retirement and endless summer. Swimming with dolphins at sunset in the Sea of Cortez.

A beach in every bay, and a party in every port.

This was the life of Tom and Jackie Hawks in 2004. It was the kind of life everyone dreams of…The kind of life a person would just kill to have.

In April 2006, Marc and Debra R. were planning a summer vacation from their home in Alberta Canada to Ontario. The year before had been tiresome dealing with their preteen daughter J.R.’s rebellious behavior. They hoped a getaway might help reconnect them.

But their daughter wasn’t as keen about the trip as they were. In fact, she had something more sinister planned.

Hosted and narrated by John Stamos, The Grand Scheme: Snatching Sinatra is a complicated, nuanced story of one imperfect man trying to redeem himself by pulling off the perfect crime. Did you ever feel like everything’s broken, and it’s your job to fix it? That’s how Barry Keenan was feeling back in 1963. He was broke, unemployed, hooked on booze and pills, and his family was falling apart. Barry needed a miracle. And against all odds, he got one. One day the voice of God came over the radio in Barry’s car and told him there was a simple solution to all his problems: all he had to do was kidnap Frank Sinatra, Jr. For the first time ever, Barry Keenan shares his version of the bizarre story in his own words, from beginning to end. This is just a preview of The Grand Scheme: Snatching Sinatra, but you can listen to full episodes at wondery.fm/MindsofMadnessScheme

Episode 107 – Mollie Tibbetts

0 Episode Rating

For some, it may be hard to believe there are still places that exist in the world where people don’t give a second thought to leaving their doors unlocked. Small, safe, secure communities where the possibility of crime is the farthest thing from anyone’s mind.

20-year-old Mollie Tibbetts lived in such a place – the tight-knit farm community of Brooklyn, Iowa. But on a cool evening in the summer of July 2018, that was all about to change.
