Hi, this is Jim and Francy your host from best case. Worst case is a new true crime podcast series out of the sunny state of Florida. It really makes it question what evidence can and can't do. The podcast is called felonious, Florida. It follows two amazing reporters from the sun sentinel newspaper as they uncover new details about too gruesome crimes where the murderers of each crime might still be out there. The first story begins after a long night out in nineteen ninety four. When a nightclub owner goes home with two women at club, owners paranoia led him to install top of the line surveillance system at his house little did he know that surveillance system would capture the last twenty two minutes of his life twenty four years later and to vacated death penalty sentences. Later, nobody stands convicted of three murders. The second crime takes us to two thousand seven. We're on Christmas afternoon. A mother and daughter were found executed in the back of their SUV. Did the killer strike in the past and Willie strike again in the future? I guess we'll find out. Out, but it's amazing with these reporters have uncovered for this show.

It's Sunday morning June twenty six nineteen ninety four just after dawn in a quiet suburb in south Florida, a forty something well, dressed, man, which shaggy hair stands over a table in a tile floor, dining room. He's laughing and flirting with two young women. They're sharing about align. The man floats around the house puts on music checks out his hairs. He passes by mirrored wall in the living room. He comes up behind one of the women as she sitting in a chair and tips her way back playfully then puts her upright and gives her a long hug. He dons a hat and tips to the other woman with a smile. Then places it on her head. This little party looks like it could go on for awhile. Then an intruder bursts through an unlocked sliding glass door. He has a machine gun without hesitating. He lives in over his head and slams the butt end of it into the man's face. Knocking him to the ground, an accomplished comes through the same door carrying something that looks like a long stick. They turn their attention to the women. And the scene turns brutally violent. What they don't know. He said every step they take every blow every bullet fired. Is being caught on tape. From the sun sentinel and south Florida dot com. In association with wondering, this is baloney as Florida, the podcasts that lead you into the dark side of the sunshine state. I'm Lisa Arthur, and this is the story of the Casey's Nickelodeon murders. Episode, one, the executions. Palm Beach county, Florida, a deputy sheriff on his regular patrol spots, thick black smoke billowing over the Everglades. He drives toward Billy a remote sugar caning town in the far west of the county. Wildfires are common out here and it hasn't rained in days, but as he approaches the location of the smoke, it's not a wildfire, deputy fines, burning car. A luxury, black Mercedes S L convertible on the side of the road fully engulfed in flames. There's nobody inside. Seven hours earlier and seventy miles to the south, too young women are looking to cap off a night out. There's a popular after hours, nightclub near Hollywood, Florida called Casey's Nickelodeon and their late night, regulars Marie, Rogers and Sharon Anderson pull into the parking lot of Casey's around three thirty Sunday morning. They always arrive after the two AM last call at other bars in the area. As usual. Casey's is crowded and marine. Sharon, make their way to the bar. That's where they wanted to Casey. The flashy manager and former owner of the club he's real name is Casimir should Karski junior. He just prefers Butch and he looks like somebody named Butch the forty eight year old is something of a local celebrity in the south Florida bar scene. And he fancies the role which is known as the party king and a ladies man. A womanizer some would say is larger than life and women love him. His roguish good books, a dazzling smile, shaggy hair. He favors AB eight or sunglasses and silk scarfs and he can actually pull them off. He wore a chunky silver chain around his neck and a diamond encrusted pendant of the Casey's Nickelodeon logo on one wrist was accordia watch on the other a bracelet with Bush spelled out in diamond studded letters.
