  • In July 2014, Dan Markel, an FSU law professor, was gunned down in his driveway in Tallahassee, Florida. The investigation led police to the discovery of a nasty divorce, wealthy former in-laws, and a murder-for-hire so complex that the investigation continues to this day. 

    Back in Episode 93, I covered the trial of two of the defendants - Sigfredo Garcia and Katherine Magbanua. While Sigfredo was convicted, the jury couldn’t decide on Katherine’s involvement. In this episode, Katherine goes to trial again, and this time, more evidence and more allegations, surface.

  • Hey everyone, no new episode this week. Instead of leaving the feed empty, I figured I would post a repeat episode, from April 2019. I'll be back next week with a regular CJ episode - thank you for your patience! 

    In December 2012, officers in Arlington Heights, Illinois, started looking into a cold case involving a suspect named Donnie Rudd. One cold case led to another, and the shocking discovery that Donnie may have murdered multiple people as he walked free for 45 years.

    In this episode, I speak to Cindy Hart, Donnie’s former stepdaughter, about what life with Donnie was like behind the scenes.

    Check out Cindy and her sister Lori’s book, Living With The Devil at LivingWithTheDevil.com
