The murders remained an intense topic of conversation station in the British media over three decades. After her sentence. Hindley's death provoked an intense response from the people of Manchester. You're welcome to today and true crime. I'm up podcast. Original due to the graphic nature of today's crimes listener discretion is advised extreme. Caution is advised for listeners under thirteen gene.

After thirty six years behind bars and multiple pleased for release Myra Hindley died in a West Suffolk Hospital of respiratory failure. Before we discussed the horrific details and fallout of Hindley and Brady's crimes. Let's explore the events leading up to Henley's demise on November fifteen. Th Two thousand two. Myra was having difficulty reading. She clutched the papers in front of her. Eyes is but the words blurred on the page. She blinked an attempted to focus. She knew every word of what she'd written but she had to be sure. This stack of papers was the key to her escape. A spasm ran from her chest down to the very tips of her fingers. She was used to chest. Pains this bland. Prison Diet was barely fit for human consumption and definitely wasn't doing her any good but these pangs four something far worse than indigestion. She gritted her teeth. She was so close she couldn't fall ill now oh not. When she was so near Freedom Myra was still upright when the prison guards found her they could tell from her shivering and barely suppressed whimpers that she was not well staying as calm as she could? She told them that she wanted to see the warden. She he had something to give him. The guards escorted her out. But instead of going to the warden's office they led her to an ambulance before four. They shut the door. She forced her statement into one of the guards hands. MIRA's breath rasped in and out every inhalation. Shen grew harder and harder today. The drive to West Suffolk Hospital felt far longer than the usual twenty minutes. The road stretched out behind the ambulance into the darkness. Myra found herself thinking back to the night when it began when her our life took. Its inexorable turn thirty nine years earlier. Myra hadn't thought she would end up in prison. All she wanted wanted to do was appeased the man she loved and what he wanted was to commit the perfect murder. It was a strange night. The first time they killed someone Myra drove the van Ian was behind her on his motorbike when he spotted the perfect target he'd flash flashes headlights and she would pull over. Myra turned onto Gorton Lane. The street was strangely quiet. A girl oral came into sight just ahead of them on the sidewalk. She must have been only eight years old behind her. Brady's lights flashed Myra grip the steering wheel and took a deep breath in the girl grew in her view until they were practically alongside her and and then mirus breath caught in her throat. She knew this girl. Her parents lived next door to Myers mother. Myra pressed pressed her foot on the accelerator and drove past the child. Who did not even look up? Myra looked to the rear view mirror. Ian Headlights were still there. She couldn't see his expression through the glare. She hoped he wouldn't be mad. He had to understand if they knew the victim The murder could be traced back to them. It would not be the perfect crime. She was sure would understand. And if he didn't Myra would face his wrath not this little girl Myra ambulance came to a sudden stop shaking her out of her memory and back into the horrible present where she could barely breathe. As far as she knew Ian was still in Ashworth she. She was determined to outlive him. He had killed her chance of parole years earlier but he would not stop her this time. Not once the warden saw what she had written she would be free inside the hospital. This thought kept upped. Her going she lost track of time. Had it been days or weeks. Doctors came and went in a hazy blur they poked poked and prodded and then they were joined by a priest. When Myra saw him her blood ran cold he was there to give her? Last rites up next Myra Hindley sentence comes is to an end.

Myra Hindley died in West Suffolk Hospital. She'd been admitted earlier that day for respiratory issues as she was escorted from her prison she handed over a series of handwritten documents to one of the guards they were an exhaustive catalogue catalogue of physical and psychological abuses Ian Brady. Her former lover had inflicted upon her to force her to aid him in the Moors murderers murderer's she hoped it would persuade justice to commute her life sentence. It was not the first time Henley had attempted to secure her own freedom. But it would be the last the Moors murderers were one of the most notorious serial killings in British history. Sorry between one thousand nine hundred sixty three and nineteen sixty five Ian Brady and Myra Hindley kidnapped five miners ranging from ten into seventeen years old. All of them were later killed and at least four of them were sexually assaulted by Brady. Henley's involvement in the killings remained unclear. Even after both of the killers had been caught Hindley maintained that Brady did the actual killing for for her part. She merely lured and trapped the miners however during the trial. A sixteen minute tape recording of one of their victims was was played in it. Were the voices of the victim. Brady and Myra Hindley as well. The recording indicated that Hindley treated the victim with callous disdain similar to that of her partner who she insisted was the true mastermind. Myra Hindley was subsequently sequentially known by the press as the most evil woman in Britain during her time in prison. She attempted to convince the public that she had reformed and felt guilt for her actions but her frequent attempts to shorten her release were unsuccessful Brady Eighty e even wrote the Home Secretary to thwart her efforts for an early release it appeared there was no love lost between them. Correspondence between Hindley and Brady ceased in nineteen seventy one and Henley began a relationship with a female warden in her prison forensic psychologist Just doctor Chris Cowley interviewed in Brady and number of times over the years when asked how a couple could get away with these kinds of murders in the nineteen sixties. He's he said. In nineteen sixties Britain. People did not kidnap and murder children for fun it was simply beyond the realms of most most people's comprehension and this is why they managed to get away with it for so long. The body of their third victim. Keith Bennett has never been found. It's believed he's buried somewhere in the Moore's but without either brady or Hindley to guide searches. Finding the the body seems practically impossible. Thanks for listening today in true crime. I'm Vanessa Richardson for more information.

March 22, 2020: Zodiac Killer Pines Postcard

"Today is Sunday March. Twenty second twenty twenty on this day in nineteen seventy one. The San Francisco Chronicle received a strange postcard reporters were quick to connect it to the serial killer who terrorized northern California from the mid nineteen sixties through the early nineteen seventies the Zodiac killer. Welcome to today in true crime. Apar- caster original due to the graphic nature of today's crimes listener discretion is advised extreme. Caution is advised for listeners under thirteen. Today we're covering the arrival of a cryptic postcard at the San Francisco Chronicle's office says let's go back to California on March Twenty Second Nineteen seventy one. When the Monday morning mail came in reporter Paul? Avery had already learned to be both wary and curious about the arrival of the day's mail a few months back on October twenty seventh. He'd received a disturbing Halloween card from the Zodiac killer. The Front of the card read from your secret pal. I feel it in my bones you to know my name and so I'll clue you in then inside. It continued but why spoil the game? It also gave an ominous if corky warning peekaboo you are doomed. It was enough to make Paul. Start carrying a thirty eight caliber revolver. Sure he had a taste for hard hitting stories as some of his colleagues noted. The Guy was never happier never complete as a human being until he was on a big tough long story he lived for that and he did them superbly. That's why he'd gotten into the Zodiac killer stories aside from the fact that covering them was part of his job as the chronicles police reporter. It's why he dug until he connected unsolved nineteen sixty six killing two the string of murders everyone else thought began in nineteen sixty eight. But that doesn't mean he was looking to get killed on the merit of his reporting hence the gun but Paul had no particular reason to feel worried the morning of March twenty second. It had been months since that Halloween scare the day to day grind of covering his beat meant he didn't have time to stew over the Zodiac killer. Anyway there were plenty of other crimes on his beat still. It didn't take him long to check his mail. It took him even less time to start analyzing what the mailman delivered amongst the normal tidbits story. Tips complaints about articles was a strange postcard. The chronicles address was stamped. On below in childishly messy handwriting was the addendum attention. Paul Avidly Equals Chronicle. The misspelling of Paul's last name Abberley instead of avery was the same as the one on the Halloween card. But that wasn't the only thing that immediately caught his attention on the top left hand corner of the card where a return address should have been was the Zodiac killer symbol a circle atop across and the word Zodiac. He'd written again but this letter like many of the Zodiac killer's missives to California. Police and newspapers was more than a threat or a warning. It seemed to be an update on the reverse. Side of the card was an advertisement. Image depicting pine forest and several cabins along with magazine letters spelling out several phrases. Sierra Club sought victim twelve peek through the Pines Pass Lake Tahoe areas and around in the snow this adjusted to Paul and his colleagues that this might very well be the Zodiac claiming responsibility for yet another killing a twelve victim. They zeroed in on one. Donna lass a nurse who disappeared in South Lake. Tahoe in September and Paul Avery as usual began to type up the story chronicle reports however knew enough to be wary of over exaggerating the claims they made on the basis of a fresh Zodiac letter. The serial killers penchant for sending coded missives to newspapers and the police had spawned plenty of copycats and pranksters. The letter might be proof of the Zodiac Killer's latest move or it might be just another stumbling block in the maddening road towards apprehending this murderer regardless the papers and the police were poised reminded that the monster might strike again at any moment coming up we'll delve into the legitimacy of the letter and the Zodiac Killer's legacy listeners.

Follow supernatural with Ashley. Flowers free on spotify. Or wherever you get your podcasts. Now back to the story on March Twenty Second Nineteen seventy-one San Francisco Chronicle reporter Paul. Avery received his second letter from the Zodiac killer or so it seemed thanks to the proliferation of Epistolary copycats spawned by the Zodiac Killer's letters. It was as always difficult to ascertain whether a postcard was genuine often letters from the Zodiac killer included details of his crimes which weren't public knowledge confirming for most that they came from the killer himself even then some skeptics have suggested that the cards came from one person while the crimes were random and unconnected the so-called peek through the Pines Postcard Paul received on March twenty second didn't contain specific or unknown details about any unsolved murder however because many of the Zodiac letters came in difficult to crack codes. It's impossible to say if the police were missing something. In the Pines Postcard reporters connected the card to the September nineteen seventy disappearance of lake. Tahoe nurse Donna Lass. But Donna's death has never been officially attributed to the Zodiac killer and the postcard remains up for debate regardless of who actually sent the Pines Postcard it holds an important place in Zodiac killer cannon. It was the last letter that was at least tentatively attributed to the Zodiac killer before the murderer remained silent for three long years. His silence changed everything while the murderer hadn't been caught the palpable fear that had gripped San Francisco since the first confirmed Zodiac killing in nineteen sixty eight finally abated. The city started to breathe again. There was still enough crime to keep the police busy but there were no longer menacing front page stories about cryptic. Serial killer codes haunting. Everyone's morning coffee. It helped that no news. Zodiac killings had been confirmed since nineteen sixty nine. In fact there are only four killings officially attributed to the serial killer making his notoriety vastly disproportionate to his official body count even those murders while brutal were relatively tame compared to the work of many other serial killers. His victims were shot or stabbed or both and that was the extent of his handiwork. More than the murderers crimes. It was those ominous letters that had been keeping his name front and center even without fresh blood when they stalled out so did the fear of him still he certainly never disappeared from the cultural consciousness. Since the late nineteen seventies the Zodiac killer has inspired countless hoax letters and several copycats these are logical and terrifying schemes to pull after all. He could still be out there. He was never arrested nor has any single suspect been definitively connected with his crimes. In the meantime he's been featured in movies TV shows and even video games and songs and referenced in countless more. He's also inspired a host of amateur sleuths amplified in the age of the Internet. Copies of his letters are available online and everyone from university professors to anonymous form users have thrown their opinions into the Zodiac killer fray. They've decoded his letters. Debated the arguments attributing different murderers to the serial killer and speculated about who might have been behind it. All people love a puzzle and when it's a terrifying famous puzzle that no one is ever quite been able to solve. It's all the more compelling the Zodiac killer is unlikely to be unmasked anytime soon but he's just as unlikely to disappear from the Cultural Zeitgeist. Thanks for listening today in true crime.

November 28, 2019: Lady Pirates Escape Death

"Today is Thursday November twenty eighth two thousand nineteen on this day in seventeen twenty any an Bonney and Mary read were convicted of piracy and sentenced to hang only to receive a last minute reprieve. They would both be remembered as two of the most famous pirates in history for both their fearsome violence and the fact the they were women. Welcome to today in true crime podcast original today. They were covering two of the most famous female pirates in the golden age of piracy and Bonnie and Mary read after the capture of their ship. Tip The William and Captain Jack Rackham. The crew was put on trial. Let us go back in. Time to Seventeen Twenty Jamaica Gotcha at the court where the two women awaited their fate. The Admiralty Court was ready. Need to hand down. Its verdict ten days earlier Captain Calico Jack Rackham had been sent to hang along with four of his his crew. The only pirates left to sentence were and Bonnie and Mary read the two women who had supposedly dressed as men and participated in Jack's heinous crimes tension hung thick in the humid island air. The crowd jostled trying aimed to get a good look at the two prisoners. The women who had committed vicious acts of piracy alongside male counterparts according to one witness. Dorothy spin low. These two women were just as vicious as the men in their party wielding machetes and pistols Stolz to menace their prisoners. Dorothy testimony made it clear that these weren't helpless women forced into becoming concubines ends to a ruthless pirate. These were ruthless pirates and Bonnie and Mary read held themselves proudly as as they were brought in front of the court this despite the fact that their faces were dirty and their clothes hung ragged about them. They he gave no indication that they feared what the court had in store for them. The crowd was silent. One member of the courts stood and addressed addressed the prisoners. You Mary read and you and Bonnie alias. Bon are to go from hence to the place from from whence you came and from thence to the place of execution where you shall be severally hanged by the Neck 'till you are severally overly dead and God of his Infinite Mercy Be merciful to both your souls. Bonnie and read exchanged exchanged a glance not moving a muscle. Then they spoke. We plead our bellies. The court exploded into commotion. Onlookers shouted derisively at the women. It was a lie. They were just buying in time. The Admiralty Committee members exchanged glance. This matter had to be handled with extreme delicacy the judge judge ordered both women back to their cell at once as the court discussed the matter the testimony they'd heard throughout the day led them to. I believe that these women would attempt to escape the news by any means necessary. The court had to be absolutely certain of the pregnancies. Tests were ordered and local. Doctors inspected the women they returned to the court promptly with their verdict. The women were indeed both pregnant. Their executions would have to wait coming up. We'll discuss the careers of an Bonney and Mary read as well as their eventual fates. Now back to the story and Bonnie and Mary read were tried and found guilty of piracy on November. Twenty eighth seventeen twenty by this time they were already two of the most well known pirates in history not only because of their gender but also because of the improbable global fact that two women disguised as men had wound up on the same ship. Much of what we know of their lives. Before taking to the sea he comes from a book entitled a General History of the pirates by captain. Charles Johnson it was published in seventeen twenty four four four years after Annan. Mary's trial for piracy in it Johnson claims and Bonnie was the illegitimate child of a respected attorney. Ernie in Cork Ireland Mary read on the other hand was born in England and joined the navy at a young age while passing as a man. Though Johnson's book contains a number of embellishments. The following facts are indisputable by seventeen twenty. The two women men met aboard the ship of Captain. Jack Rackham there. The trio committed a number of acts of piracy alongside rackhams crew of nine men. Men Historians are uncertain. How Open Bonnie and read were about their true identities some maintain that it opened seed they lived as women and only donning male close went on a raid others claimed that they masqueraded as men throughout their careers as pirates but all these accounts definitively agree that Mary and Anne were close friends and that Calico Jack was in on their deception after months? Awesome sailing with Calico Jack Onboard his sloop William and Bonnie and Mary read found themselves captured and held as prisoners of the crowd. Our along with the rest of the crew Calico Jack was hanged on November. Eighteenth in Port Royal Jamaica and most of his crew followed load shortly after before his execution Rackham came to visit and Bonnie in prison during which she supposedly coined one of the most most legendary farewells in the golden age of piracy. I am sorry to see you here but if you had fought like a man you need not oughta have been hanged like a dog. Unlike their doomed fellows and Mary still had some cards to play at the last last minute both of them claimed to be pregnant a practice known at the time as pleading your belly doctors examined them and determined at at least as far as medical knowledge of the time could tell both women were telling the truth. The Admiralty Court granted them a stay of execution until after their children were born but life in the Caribbean during the eighteenth century held dangers injures of its own even when not facing the news the average life expectancy in this period of history was around thirty five to forty and though Mary read was no average woman she would not defied these odds sometime in the spring of seventeen twenty one. Mary read fell ill and died. She was buried on April. Twenty eight th seventeen. Twenty one by Saint Catherine's Church in Jamaica. Her story lives on in the mid surrounding the golden age of piracy and Bonnie on the other hand vanished from history. Sorry after the trial the closest we get to a hint of her fate comes from the last page of her chapter in Johnson's book. What is become of her since we cannot tell only this we know that she was not executed? And thanks for listening to today in true crime. I'm Vanessa Richardson.

March 15, 2020: Julius Caesar Assassinated

"Today is Sunday march fifteenth. Twenty twenty on this day in forty four BC e Roman general and dictator. Julius Caesar was assassinated by a cabal of evil senators. Welcome to today and true crime podcast. Original due to the graphic nature of today's crimes listener discretion is advised extreme. Caution is advised for listeners under thirteen. Today we're covering the death of fifty five year old. Julius Caesar let's go back to ancient Rome in the early hours of the morning of March Fifteenth Forty Four B. C. E. The morning started slowly for Caesar. The march was an important religious holiday for the Romans. As well as the day to settle debts he had plenty to do yet. Couldn't even seem to get started instead. He had to endure. A deluge of ominous warnings and paranoid whispers. His doctors worried. He would soon have a dizzy spell and collapse. His friends claimed there was a conspiracy against him. Even his wife help. Hernia harangued him to stay at home claiming she'd had frightening dreams of his violent demise. Luckily he was saved by his friend. And Confidante Decima Brutus. Brutus wave away. Help complaints and the rumors of revolt as idle gossip. The Senators had invited Caesar to the theatre hoping to honor him with a gladiatorial if he turned them down over a strange dream. They'd be insulted. Brutus and Caesar then made the long walk Caesar's home to the theater of pompey constructed by his ally turned nemesis. Hoppy the great though Caesar had mixed feelings about the general he admired pompiers legacy. The theater was the first of its kind and featured a breathtaking manicured garden complete with hand. Sculpted water pieces. But Caesar didn't get much chance to admire the scenery that day instead brutus ushered him into the Curia. A small room near the entrance to the theater inside. Dozens of senators were waiting. He'd hardly sat down. When one lucious Tilles CIMBER approached him lucious begged Caesar to allow his exiled brother who blessed to come home to Rome. Caesar refused to consider the matter but lucious would not be easily dismissed. He pleaded with Caesar to let Pugliese. Return even clawing at Caesar's Toga and grasping his shoulders. As Lucius spoke the other senators started to crowd Caesar lending their support to lucious and babbling about their own pet projects. Finally a stunned and annoyed. Caesar cast lucious away proclaiming. Why this is violence. The moment was exactly what another Senator Casca was waiting for with. Caesar's is on Lucius. Casca drew a dagger from his Toga and rusted. At Caesar's neck landed only a shallow cut and in an instant. Caesar spun around and grabbed. Casco's arm ever the Kool military man. Caesar remained calm and held casca firmly at his mercy but CASCA had only been the first strike and it was impossible for Caesar to stop all his enemies as he started to question. Casca he felt a white hot pain explode across his back then. Another then another. He was stabbed twenty three times as he lay covered in blood. There's some dispute about his last words. Several sources claim. He didn't say anything one claims. He covered his face with his Togo when he saw his friend. Brutus had joined in the assassination another state. Caesar addressed Brutus you to child. It was this version adapted by Shakespeare. To et Tu Brute then Fall Caesar which has reigned supreme in the public consciousness since then but the fall of Caesar was only the first step in the conspirators quest to seize power a quest which would eventually lead to the total collapse of the Roman republic coming up. We discuss the aftermath of Julius Caesar's assassination and the imminent civil war high listeners. I'm excited to announce that CRIME JUNKIES FLOWERS. A new podcast original series.

Julius Caesar was stabbed in the back by his political enemies immediately following his death the conspirators ran throughout Rome proclaiming that the dictator was dead and that the city was free. The reaction was not exactly what they expected. Though Caesar had been a dictator he was immensely popular among the lower classes of the city. He also had support from a vast portion of his veteran forces. The all rallied behind mark. Antony an ally of Caesar who had tried to stop the assassination. Antony said about consolidating his position as the remaining conspirators slipped out of Rome and built armies of their own but Antony's progress was slowed when he learned Cesar had left the bulk of his fortune to his eighteen year. Old Grand Nephew and adopted son Octavius after struggling amongst themselves octavius. Antony eventually formed an alliance together. They set out to face the armies of the so called liberators who supported the assassination of Caesar. The liberators were led by. Brutus and Cassius two of the men who had killed Caesar in forty two BC. Antony and Octavius set sail and attacked the army of the liberators near the Grecian city of Philip Pie. Both armies were of similar size. But Antony and octavius forces were better rested into battles the Roman forces vanquished the liberators. Thousands of soldiers were killed and both Cassius and brutus died by suicide to prevent their capture with that. The civil war ended but the struggle for power continued as the Roman empire was divided between octavius. Mark Antony and Lapidus who had been Caesar's master of Horse in the ensuing years octavius strengthened his position in the western regions of the empire. While Antony did the same in the east intermittent conflict erupted between the two over the years but things did not truly come to a head again until thirty three. Bc that year civil war looked imminent once more. Antony allied with Cleopatra in Egypt. Named Caesar and Cleopatra's son the true heir of Caesar Octavius couldn't stand to have his status as Caesar's heir threatened in thirty two B. C. E. He rallied the Senate to his side and declared war against Cleopatra and Antony the resulting conflict ended in Antony's final defeat in thirty BC. He died in Cleopatra's arms with almost all of octavius. As enemies gone he was left to acquire supreme power for himself. He eventually took on the name. Caesar Augustus and ushered in an era known as the principal. The principal mark the beginning of a time where Rome was ruled by a single emperor formally ending the Roman Republic. Though Augusta says later rule would usher in the POX Romana A- period of peace his efforts to concentrate political power likely contributed to the eventual fall of the empire heralded as a power mad dictator by his assassins. Julius Caesar would have likely founded amusing that these same assassins ensured the death of the Republic in life and in death. Caesar played a pivotal role in the trajectory of the empire and his murder became the quintessential symbol of betrayal at the hands of one's friends a backstabbing a symbol.

Let's go back to London a little after six thirty. AM on Saturday. November twenty sixth nineteen eighty three lead security guard. Robin risely poured himself a cup of tea and chatted with his co workers. Before for the morning shift everyone was on time except Tony Black. Who Hustled in a few minutes late as usual risely thought about chastising black but decided to let it go? It was a Saturday and the atmosphere was more relaxed than during the week. He drained his tea. The and was just starting to stand up for work when the door bursts open within seconds six masked men surrounded the guards brandishing automatic weapons and yelling for them to get on the ground. risely didn't hesitate to do as he was told he had served in the army and knew the best option in a situation like this was to do exactly what the thugs demanded but another of the guards. Peter Bentley didn't comply so quickly when he failed to immediately dropped to the floor. One of the masked men pistol whipped him on the back of the head head. He fell to the floor in a heap. The robbers put hoods over the faces of the guards cuffed their hands behind their backs and duct taped their feet together. risely was stunned by the speed of it all. It was clear that thieves knew exactly what they were doing. And did it. All with military efficiency risely struggled to maintain his composure as he laid on the floor as the crew lead lead. He was one of the two guards who knew the combinations to the underground vault and he knew the thugs would be targeting him soon as if on. Cue One of the robbers yelled for Robin risely. risely really responded hoping to keep the thieves calm by continuing to do what they asked still hooded they dragged rise lead to a back office and demanded the codes to the vault rise is Lee told them he had the combinations but the two doors leading to the vault required more than just codes. They needed keys. which were held By another of the guards Mike scouse but the robbers were already one step ahead of risely they already had scouts in. The room hooded hooded and bound right next to him before either man could say more. The thugs soaked both risely and scouse in gasoline gene. The smell wafted through the hood and made rise lease is water. He started to shake as the masked men told him what would happen if an alarm was tripped when they tried to open the vault. They promised risely they would light a match and burn both him mm-hmm and scouse alive. Needless to say risely took the threat to heart. He struggled to keep himself com as the thieves. Thieves dragged him and scowls down to the vault and yanked off their hoods the light stung rise Leigh's is and and he had to squint for a moment to see the keypad in front of him. He punched in the code to the first door. Slowly making sure for each number was correct. While one of the thugs turned S- causses key. The next few moments were tense. As risely. I listened for the sound of the door unlocking praying. He'd entered the code correctly. Finally it unlocked and risely Isley was faced with another door and keypad. He entered the second code while the next key was turned finally after what seemed like like an eternity. The vault opened before him. The masked men rushed into the vault shoving Rysley along with them and they directed him straight to three large safes in the back of the room. This was their goal. The thieves were confident. At least three million pounds in cash were kept in the safes. They knew risely have the combinations and they demanded he opened them risely shook uncontrollably as the men shoved their guns in his face and screamed at him only days before for the safe combinations had been changed and suddenly he couldn't remember them. He felt a chilling sense of dread red creeping up his spine. His stomach nodded and twisted. He knew if he couldn't remember the codes he would be killed. He trembled and racked his brain but no numbers came to mind after almost twenty minutes of stalling the masked c'mon realized Rysley wasn't going to remember the codes. Two of them grabbed him by the neck and angrily dragged him out of the vault risely gritted his teeth. His mind raced. He believed he was being dragged to his death before or he could think of some way to save himself. The men arrived at a closet. They opened the door and risely saw his fellow security guard. Tony only black handcuffed inside the thieves through risely in the closet with black and locked them both up risely shuddered heard and he took a deep breath once the door was closed. It seemed they weren't going to kill him yet. Downstairs the the robbers were at a loss. They debated cutting their losses and leaving without the money but amongst the piles of less valuable goods in the vault called one of them. Spotted a pallet stacked with plain grey containers with few other options. The thieves started searching Ching through the containers and audibly gasped at what they found coming up the conclusion of one of the largest robberies in British history. Now back to the story. On the morning of November twenty sixth nineteen eighteen eighty three six masked men raided a secure London warehouse. The robbers moved with startling efficiency and gained access to to the vault below the warehouse in just half an hour but once inside the thieves were stuck the lead. Security Guard Robin Rysley. I couldn't remember the combinations to the safes inside the vault with few options. The thugs searched a stack of nondescript gray containers stashed in a corner inside. They found three tons of pure gold today worth over one hundred million dollars. The robbers were floored. They'd been expecting to score only a fraction of the treasure that lay before them now using a forklift clift. They hurried to haul the gold up to their van over an hour later. They exited the warehouse and sped away leaving the security guards bound and hooded on the floor. The thieves got away clean but within thirty minutes one of the guards managed managed to free himself from his restraints and call the police. The investigation proceeded slowly at first but after ten days detective -tective discovered one security guard. Tony Black had worked for the robbers as an inside man. He gave the police the names of three of of the six thieves all of whom had long criminal histories. The other three men eluded detection largely through sheer luck as police. Surveillance lost a promising lead while tracking one of their vehicles in nineteen eighty. Four Tony Black and the three. The other suspects were put on trial. Black was given six years in jail. Thanks to his cooperation with authorities. Two of his named associates associates a criminal named Mickey mcevoy and blacks brother-in-law. Brian Robinson were sentenced to twenty five years in prison. Each the third suspect a man referred to as Tony White was acquitted after police lost a signed copy of his confession. But that's far from the whole story of the brink's mat robbery though. Four of the six thieves were never convicted. Did they weren't the only ones involved in the crime. Because the original gang had been expecting to steal cash. Rather than gold bullion they they lacked expertise in melting down and selling the ill-gotten gold to get rid of the Bouillon. They enlisted the help of shadowy figures like Kenneth With noy well known in the underground for his expertise in fencing. Stolen goods noise sold off the gold but as he tried to pump. Tom alarge amount of the dirty money back into the legitimate market. The Bank of England noticed they quickly alerted. Police who placed aced NEU- under surveillance after enough evidence was gathered. Nobody was convicted of conspiracy in nineteen ninety six and was sentenced to fourteen years in prison. He eventually secured an early release but wasn't out for long in Nineteen ninety-six. He murdered twenty one year old Stephen Cameron in about of road rage and ran from police. He wasn't uncaught until nineteen ninety. Eight when Spanish police arrested him in the town of Barbados and extradited him to Britain. Norway was subsequently quaintly sentenced to life in prison but was released once again in June of two thousand nineteen at the age of seventy two. No it was. Only one of many criminals suspected of trafficking the gold. Some of whom have met early deaths leading to rumors of the curse of brink's-mat though it's true some have met untimely ends some evidence suggests just as many criminals got away Scott Free even today. There's much we do not know about the brink's mat robbery more than two thirds of the stolen gold has never bourbon found more than likely it will never be recovered. Lost in a series of shady deals and phony paperwork while it's yet to be seen whether brink's-mat truly was the crime of the century. Its consequences are certainly felt today nearly four decades later. Thanks for listening to today in true crime. I'm Vanessa Richardson today. In true crime is a podcast original.

killer the cab and moved around it to the front passenger door he opened the door and reached in to pull the keys from the ignition he pocketed suspect he described the man they were looking for as a black male so when falcons elms passed a heavyset white man walking down in the cab the killer grabbed a swatch of stine's torn shirt and took off down Cherry Street patrol police searched the surrounding blocks but it was too late the killer was gone the murder was not initially linked to the Zodiac Killer tween twenty five or thirty five with reddish brown hair and heavy rimmed glasses they could likely see Stein's body from their vantage point away from the crime scene they thought nothing of it they hurried to the scene only then did they learn that the dispatch had mixed up the suspect's description put the cab back in gear maybe the guy had gotten his address wrong it happened all the time where to Stein asked as the cab cruised along Washington Falcons elms both realized that they had very likely just past the killer coming up eighteenth two days after Stein's death the San Francisco Chronicle received a new Zodiac letter it read composite sketch of what they believed the killer looked like this was widely circulated but to no avail the Zodiac killer tells the gun that the killer used to kill Stein also did not match the suspected weapons used in the other attacks it was the Zodiac himself who led the his name the Zodiac the killer had not sent a letter in several weeks the newspapers had not heard from him even after the events of the medical the San Francisco Examiner and the Vallejo Times in these letters the killer took credit for his crimes taunted the police for their Paul stine's murderer the Zodiac killer continued to send letters to the San Francisco Chronicle over the next few years in some he inability to catch him and sent bizarre ciphers that he challenged the police to try and solve it was also in these letters that the killer had shared officers Don Falcone and Eric Films were the closest to the crime scene as they made their way toward Washington Cherry their dispatcher gave them an update on the on the night that he killed Paul Stein this is likely untrue officers Falcons films reported that they had just seen the man passing on there wrote another letter to the San Francisco Chronicle on November ninth nineteen sixty nine in it he claimed that he actually spoke with police officers the crime didn't fit his usual mo all of the other known Zodiac attacks had occurred in secluded areas and the victims had all been cut I am the same man who did in the people in the North Bay area the San Francisco police could have caught me last night if they had searched the park proper nineteen sixty nine the Zodiac killer brutally attacked seven people killing five of them he seemed to resurface at least once more in on it seems unlikely that it ever will police to suspect that there was more to Paul stine's murder since August of nineteen sixty nine the Zodiac killer had been mailing letters to the San Francisco eighteen seventy when he attempted to abduct a woman named Kathleen Johns and her infant child Kathleen later linked her attacker to the police sketch of I am the murderer of the taxi driver over by Washington Street and Maple Street last night to prove this here is a bloodstained piece of his

might have missed him still if the man that Falcons Elm saw early the letter included a bloody scrap of Paul stine's shirt the witnesses who had initially called the police worked with a sketch artist

October 03, 2019: O. J. Simpson

"Today is Thursday October third two thousand nineteen on this day in nineteen ninety five five forty eight year old. OJ Simpson was found not guilty of a double homicide while the matter was settled in the eyes of the law the debate over OJ's culpability continues to rage on in the court of Public Opinion Today. Hello welcome today. In true crime a podcast original every day we flip back the calendar to this day eight years ago and recount one event from true crime history due to the graphic nature of today's crimes listener discretion is advised extreme caution is advised for listeners under thirteen today. I'm covering the October Third Nineteen ninety-five acquittal of OJ Simpson on charges urges of double homicide. The world was shocked when Oj was charged with murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman on June seventeenth nineteen ninety-four. OJ Simpson was a former football star and actor on television and the big screen in a true American treasure but the evidence against him was indisputable or so the prosecutors thought however on the morning wing of October Third Nineteen Ninety five the La County jury had a very different opinion court was in session after eleven long months. The people of the State of California versus Orenthal James Simpson was coming to a close at the time it was the longest jury trial in the history of California and and in a few moments it would finally be over the crowd buzzed with anticipation as Judge Lance. Ito entered the packed courtroom around around ten. Am with news cameras capturing every moment judge. Ito requested the audience refrained from reacting while the verdict was being read and with that he asked the defendant to rise and face the jury as the clerk announced his fate going into the trial the prosecution believed it would be an open and shut case just after midnight on the night of June Twelfth Nineteen Ninety four the police this had been alerted when a neighbor noticed Nicole's Akita howling by her gate. It's pristine. White fur was stained red with blood ten minutes later. The police arrived on the scene in Los Angeles upscale Brentwood neighborhood. The whimpering dog was standing over the dead bodies of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman Nicole's neck had been stabbed and then brutally slashed. Ron Ron had been stabbed over thirty times. It was ferocious sloppy work and the killer had left evidence in the form of a bloody glove and footprints from a size twelve shoe around four thirty a. m. police went to tell Nicole's ex husband. OJ O J Simpson what had happened. He wasn't home but police officer mark. Furman did find something else afford bronco its its interior covered in blood along with a companion to the glove they had discovered at the crime scene five days later. OJ They was arrested for Nicole and Ron's murders but only after a sixteen mile car chase in which an estimated ninety five million million people tuned in to watch as OJ drove his Bronco through the streets of Los Angeles at the trial the prosecution team of Marcia Russia Clark and Christopher Darden provided DNA testing showing that the blood found at the crime scene was a match for OJ's but OJ's Jays so-called Dream Team of lawyers led by Johnny Cochran Robert Kardashian and Robert Shapiro had another story when they dug into the personal history of Mark Furman the police officer who had discovered the bloody glove at O. J.'s house. The defense lawyers uncovered a sordid did past apparently during a taped interview with an aspiring screenwriter firm and had previously admitted to planting evidence to help secure convictions fictions additionally. He liberally used the N. Word Multiple Times during the interview during Firmin's Cross Examination Judge Edo allowed for this tape to be admitted into evidence therefore the defense lawyers were able to paint firm who also owned a Nazi medallion as as a white supremacist they also established a theory that Furman had planted the bloody glove at O. J.'s house. Even though they had no evidence to back this theory theory up it resonated with the jury the defense's job was to establish the seed of reasonable doubt in the jurors minds and it had taken root coming up the jury reaches its verdict and now back to the story after one hundred thirty three days of televised court proceedings nearly one hundred fifty witnesses and fifteen fifteen million dollars of taxpayers money the people of the state of California versus. Orenthal James Simpson was drawing to a close although the prosecution had a slew of evidence suggesting that OJ had killed Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman the defense had artfully fully established a credible amount of doubt the question was whether it was enough to persuade the jury around ten am on October Third Nineteen ninety-five Judge Lance Ito's Clerk D. Drew Robinson read the verdict we the jury in the above entitled Action Find Wind Defendant Orenthal James Simpson not guilty of the crime of murder as the verdict was read. OJ allowed himself authen smile. He mouthed the words. Thank you to the jury as his lawyer. Johnnie Cochran slapped him on the back and pumped his fist but the reaction from Nicole and Ron's loved ones was far different. Ron's is father. Fred Goldman looked up at the ceiling in pain disbelief the only sound other than Deirdre Robinson reading the verdict was of the Gulping sobs of Ron Sister Kim Goldman Ron's. Mother Patty could only shake her head and whisper. Oh My oh my God the reactions outside the courtroom were just as divided as the verdict was announced over the loudspeakers on buses traveling along Alvarado Arado avenue many of the writers broke into cheers but in the Ritzy Orange County neighborhood where Nicole and Oj's children were being cared for by their grandparents. Someone put up a sign reading. OJ Your not welcome here. The trial had become so ingrained in the national consciousness that even President Bill Clinton was compelled to release a statement. The jury heard the evidence and rendered its verdict. Our System of justice requires respect for their decision at this moment our thoughts. It's an prayers should be with the families of the victims of this terrible crime meanwhile. OJ was celebrating his newfound freedom he he returned to his Brentwood Mansion at eleven sixteen a m a little over an hour after his acquittal as he and his entourage partied late into the night it seemed like his troubles were over but the justice system wasn't finished with Oj Simpson yet although he had been declared not guilty in Criminal Court OJ faced a civil lawsuit for Nicole and Ron's murders unlike the criminal system Tom which deals with legal punishment for breaking the law civil cases deal with disputes between two parties rather than dealing out a jail sentence if if the jury in Oj's civil case ruled against him he'd be forced to pay financial compensation to the victims families in nineteen ninety eighty six OJ underwent a three month trial for the wrongful deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman unlike in his criminal trial L. O. J. was forced to testify previously he had denied that he ever wore the same kind of size twelve Bruno Mali shoes who's whose prints had been discovered at the crime scene but while he was on the stand the lawyer representing the Goldmans produced photos showing OJ wearing them on several occasions furthermore judge he Rochhi Fujisaki took great pains to prevent the same circus like atmosphere that had pervaded judge. Ito's courtroom he banned TV cameras. Put a gag order on all the lawyers and prevented the admission of any arguments without evidence ultimately. The jury ruled that Oj had wrongfully caused Nicole and Ron's deaths he was forced is to pay thirty three point five million dollars in damages to their families while it wasn't the same as putting him behind bars the ruling at least I put him into some financial difficulty and that difficulty would get Oj into even more legal trouble as the years passed. OJ's financial woes forced him to sell off his sports memorabilia but eventually he decided he wanted did everything back in September two thousand seven. OJ and several armed men held up a pair of sports memorabilia dealers is in their Las Vegas Hotel Room after getting caught for stealing items that he had previously sold Oj was charged with twelve different crimes including armed robbery and kidnapping in December two thousand eight. He was found guilty and sentenced to thirty three years in prison in July two thousand seventeen. Oj was released on parole the board that hurt his case. I voted in a unanimous four zero decision to grant him an early release. Even one of the defendants in the case went on the stand to speak in own j's defense but not everyone was happy to see him become a free man speaking to the Guardian newspaper Ron Goldman's father. Fred said what's troubling to me is not only him but the whole system give second chances to violent felons or for that matter anyone in jail. L. Ron doesn't get a second chance Fred. Goldman's comments showed how Oj Simpson's legal battles were much more than just one man facing criminal accusations regardless of what actually happened on the night of June Twelfth Nineteen Ninety four OJ Simpson's trial l. for the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman became a flashpoint for racial injustice police misconduct and a referendum referendum on the American justice system as a whole as of two thousand nineteen. Those debates continue to rage on and while they do. OJ Simpson lives as a free man. Thanks for listening to today in true crime. I'm Vanessa Richardson today. True crime is a podcast original.

Today is monday august nineteenth two thousand nineteen on this day in nineteen seventy. John norman collins was convicted of the murder of eighteen year old karen sue binat an outsider would have assumed collins called handsome some by the newspapers was karen's boyfriend that it was a crime of passion however despite being tried for only one murder collins was guilty of many many more authorities believed he was notorious that collins was the selana ripper welcome to today in true true crime a podcast original every day. We tell a timely story from true crime history then analyze the historical impact of that day's day's events. I'm vanessa richardson today. Were diving into the conviction of john. Norman collins one of michigan's most infamous serial. Oh killers while it was a victory for the justice system for one sergeant on the case. The conviction came at a personal cost. Due to the graphic nature of today's crimes. Listener discretion is advised. We advise extreme caution for children under thirteen. Let's go back to washtenaw in all county michigan the morning of august nineteenth nineteen seventy around nine a._m. At the end of the worst year of sergeant david lakes life. He got a phone call. The jury had a verdict court would be in session at nine thirty a._m. David was no stranger to court but as he dressed and told his wife sandra the time had come the thought of sitting in the wide would and room repulsed him. He wasn't sure which verdict was worse either he and his task force. I would be proven right but his nephew john would be put behind bars or john would be declared innocent and david put his family family through hell for nothing. When john first came under suspicion david had defended him staunchly he was just a college kid a a good catholic boy former captain of his high school football team. Maybe he had a rough start in life but his sister-in-law did her best. He was majoring in education for crying out loud but over the past year the inklings david tried to ignore had grown to full blown convictions vixen. No more women had disappeared in the time john norman collins was held in custody as much as he hated to admit it it was is more likely than not that his nephew had murdered a woman in david's basement and he'd used david status as sergeant to help cover up the murders of several more david called for sandra to get in the car. It was a hard day for him but even harder for his wife. Her sister would be at the courthouse crying over the sun. She believed to be innocent. She'd taken out a second second mortgage to defend him. There wasn't much to discuss on the ride to the courthouse. They'd both already testified against their nephew but but how couldn't they last summer they'd gone on an innocent vacation to perfect summer weeks in madison wisconsin and lake michigan while john stayed at their house to watch the german shepherd before they left sandra gave david and their boys haircuts in the basement all part of a normal happy family life but when they returned they found the basement floor repainted and their children's hair clippings missing from from the trash days later the tiny hairs were found inside the body of murder victim karen sue bynum amen karen was the latest in a series of uncomfortably similar murders all young brunettes all found with clothing tied around their necks all attributed to the epsilon ripper though the earlier killings had left authorities with no leads the circumstantial evidence in karen's nineteen sixty nine murder pointed directly at john norman collins and the desecration of her corpse warps matched the six prior victims officially he was only on trial for one crime but in the court of public opinion and the minds lines of police collins was on trial for seven murders. David knew the month long trial was the most painful for karen ensues family but that didn't make it any easier for the collinses and the lakes sandra and john had been close all his life and john had always always called david his favorite uncle. John played with their elementary school kids. All the time had played today. They would determine if david's sons would ever see their cousin john again at washtenaw county circuit court judge. John conlon called those present to order. It was just after nine thirty a. M. and the air was still fresh from the prior evenings thunderstorm david sat in the third row next to sandra who'd brought a rosary in the front row her sister loretta collins had brought a priest john norman collins dressed like he was expecting news of a prestigious internship. Instead of time in prison remained stone-faced at the defendant offended table. His hair was neat. Save a forelock that hung over his blue eyes evoking superman like his mother he maintained gened. He was the hero of this story. The jury entered at nine thirty three a._m. As judge conlon <unk> asked for the verdict david held his breath it was career or family but truthfully no one would win. Seven seven girls had died horribly mutilated the worst crimes he'd seen in his career. Nothing would ever be the same name. The foreman spoke guilty a collective gasp arose. It was a wash of emotions betrayal disappointment shame sympathy sadness horror all overwhelming the proud twinge of we got him that that usually made being an officer so satisfying loretta stared into the distance white faced and immobile. David's niece gayle aol broke down in tears. John had no reaction whatsoever. Judge colin thanked the jury and the court was has dismissed ears ringing. David watched loretta. Throw herself on john. She wailed for her sons compromised future ignorant of the bynum and family still in the room whose daughter's future had been stolen as loretta cried and caressed her son. John remained stoic. He looked to sandra mouthed something and she grabbed david's arm suddenly overcome with what she she done by turning in her nephew when the marshals put john in handcuffs loretta gave david and sandra a look that could burn down acidity. What had they done to her. Little boy the right thing they found justice for at least seven women lemon and save the lives of countless more but that didn't make it hurt any less coming up up. We'll talk more about how sergeant lake and the michigan state police task force caught the epsilon t- ripper now back to the story <hes> you a few weeks after his august nineteenth murder conviction john norman collins would be sentenced sentenced to life in solitary confinement with hard labour in reaction. He would speak more than he did. The full year prior unquote. I think they conscientiously tried to give me a fair trial. The jury did not take its task lightly but i think things were blown out of proportion portion the circumstances around this case. I think it was a travesty of justice which took place in this court over the past six or seven weeks. I hope someday someday that error will be corrected second. I never knew a girl by the name of karen sue bynum men. I never held a conversation with karen sue bynum woman. I never took her to a wig shop. I never took her to my uncle's home. I did not take the life of karen sue vitamin. He would maintain his innocence for decades but after collins sentencing there would be we know more doubt a short time into his life sentence authorities would decide. It's too expensive to prosecute him. For the other murders. Everyone would agree. He's guilty and limited. Resources are best aimed at criminals who are still at large sergeant david lake would continue his distinguished ding wished career with the michigan state police promoting justice helping others and remaining an honorable man between nineteen sixty seven and nineteen sixty nine john norman collins killed at least seven women a college student. You didn't himself. He lured his victims from college. Campuses targeting white brunettes he seemed to reserve a specific hatred for women on their are periods evidenced in his personal life and the profile of his victims collins tortured his victims beating them up stabbing them and degrading them with objects and chemicals before strangling them to death each victim was found with an article of clothing tied around her neck doc and her bodily cavities plugged collins has a strikingly similar m._o. To another infamous serial killer the unknown scotsman bible john who operated in glasgow at the same time both targeted menstruating young women sexually assaulted them and strangled wrangled them. The bodies were left in a way that displayed the victims menstruation and with an article of clothing tied around their necks. It's an oddly godless specific modus operandi and because bible john was never caught and john norman collins won't talk will never fully lee understand the motive behind it and wild bible. John is one of the most famous serial killers in scotland. Collins is the most famous in michigan again and he seemed to relish the attention. His crimes were given at one crime scene. He left an earring stolen from a previous victim at another five lilacs for each of his five victims so far he regaled co workers and friends with the gory details claiming he'd gotten an inside scoop from his uncle sergeant david lake but while having an uncle on the task force investigating his murders was a shield it was eventually his undoing by june nineteen sixty nine collins was losing control killing killing more frequently when his aunt and uncle sandra and david lake asked him to watch their house for a few weeks he couldn't pass up. The opportunity took kill driving his motorcycle on july twenty third nineteen sixty nine. He picked up karen sue vitamin outside a wig shop in downtown epsilon. She had just finished her freshman year at eastern michigan university and accepted a ride home from the handsome stranger three days later karen's body was found on the side of a main road horrifically mutilated in the same way as previous victims but unlike previous victims karen's body cavities were filled with hundreds of tiny hairs and when the lakes returned home they found black paint spots on the floor sergeant lake thinking like the police officer he was looked under the fresh paint and found red spots. He called his nephew who denied ever using paint in the basement. This only only furthered lakes suspicion some of the red spots tested as varnish but a further search found blood type a the same as karen's while in the basement police found hair clippings left from the lake boys pre vacation haircuts hair clippings that matched those found on karen it was enough evidence for police to bring collins in for questioning and then arrest him john norman collins was only twenty two but his graphic killings had already earned the hip zeleny ripper a lifetime of infamy for me for more information on john.

I'm vanessa richardson today. Were diving into the conviction of john. Norman collins coghlan's one of michigan's most infamous serial killers while it was a victory for the justice system for one sergeant on the case. The conviction came. I'm at a personal cost. Due to the graphic nature of today's crimes listener discretion is advised. We advise extreme caution for children under thirteen. Let's go back to washtenaw county michigan the morning of august nineteenth nineteen seventy around nine nine a._m. At the end of the worst year of sergeant david lakes life. He got a phone call. All the jury had a verdict court would be in session at nine thirty a._m. David was no stranger to court but is he dressed and and told his wife sandra the time had come the thought of sitting in the wide wooden room repulsed him. He wasn't sure which verdict it was worse. Either he and his task force would be proven right but his nephew john would be put behind bars or john would be declared innocent and david had put his family through hell for nothing. When john first came under suspicion david had defended him staunchly he was just a college kid a good catholic boy former captain of his high school football team. Maybe he'd had a rough start in life but his sister-in-law did her best. He was majoring in education for crying out loud but over the past year the inklings david tried to ignore ignore had grown to full blown convictions. No more women had disappeared in the time john norman collins was held in custody as much as he hated to admit it it was more likely than not that his nephew had murdered a woman in david's basement and he'd used david status as sergeant to help cover up the murders of several more david called for sandra it to get in the car. It was a hard day for him but even harder for his wife. Her sister would be at the courthouse crying over the sun. She believed believed to be innocent. She taken out a second mortgage to defend him. There wasn't much to discuss on the ride to the courthouse. They both already already testified against their nephew. But how couldn't they last summer. They'd gone on an innocent vacation to perfect summer weeks six in madison wisconsin and lake michigan while john stayed at their house to watch the german shepherd before they left sandra gave david in their boys boys haircuts in the basement all part of a normal happy family life but when they returned they found the basement floor repainted and their children's hair clippings missing from the trash days later the tiny hairs were found inside the body of a murder victim karen sue bynum karen was the latest in a series of uncomfortably similar murders all young brunettes all found with clothing tied around their necks all attributed to the epsilon t- ripper though the earlier earlier killings had left authorities with no leads the circumstantial evidence in karen's nineteen sixty nine murder pointed directly at john norman norman collins and the desecration of her corpse matched the six prior victims officially he was only on trial for one crime but in the court of public opinion and the minds of the police collins was on trial for seven murders. David knew do the months long. Trial was the most painful for karen sues family but that didn't make it any easier for the collinses and the lakes sandra and john in had been close all his life and john had always called david his favorite uncle. John played with their elementary school kids all the time time had played today would determine if david sons would ever see their cousin john again at washtenaw county circuit court judge. John conlon called those present to order. It was just after nine thirty a. m. and the air there was still fresh from the prior evenings thunderstorm. David sat in the third row next to sandra who brought a rosary in the front row her sister loretta collins had brought a priest john norman collins dressed like he was expecting news of a prestigious internship. Instead of time i am in prison remained stone-faced at the defendant table. His hair was neat. Save a forelock that hung over his blue eyes evoking superman like his mother he maintained he was the hero of this story. The jury entered at nine nine thirty three a._m. As judge conlon asked for the verdict david held his breath it was career or family but truthfully no one would win. Seven girls had died horribly mutilated the worst crimes he'd seen in his career ear. Nothing would ever be the same. The foreman spoke guilty a collective gaspar rose. It was a wash of emotions betrayal disappointment shame sympathy sadness horror all overwhelming overwhelming the proud twinge of we got him that usually made being an officer so satisfying loretta stared into the distance white faced faced and immobile. David's niece gayle broke down in tears. John had no reaction whatsoever. Judge judge conlon thanked the jury and the court was dismissed ears ringing. David watched loretta. Throw herself on john. She wailed for her sons compromised future ignorant of the bynum and family still in the room whose daughter's future had been stolen as loretta cried and caressed her son. John remained stoic. He looked to sandra mouthed something and she grabbed abc david's arm suddenly overcome with what she done by turning in her nephew when the marshals put john in handcuffs loretta gave david abe and sandra a look that could burn down a city. What had they done to her little boy the right thing they'd found justice for at least seven women and saved the lives of countless more but that didn't make it hurt any less. It's coming up. We'll talk more about how sergeant lake and the michigan state police task force caught the epsilon t- he ripper now back to the story a few weeks after his august nineteenth murder conviction john norman collins would be sentenced to life in solitary confinement with hard labour in reaction he would speak more but then he did the full year prior quote.

I think it was a travesty of justice which took place in this court over over the past six or seven weeks. I hope someday that error will be corrected second. I never knew a girl by the name of karen sue vitamin and i never held a conversation with karen sue vitamin. I never took her to a wig shop. I never took her to my uncle's home. I did not take take the life of karen sue vitamin. He would maintain his innocence for decades but after collins sentencing there would be no more doubt a short time into his life sentence authorities would decide. It's too expensive to prosecute him. For the other murders. Everyone would agree.

I hope you enjoy it. Today is monday august nineteenth two thousand nineteen on this day in nineteen seventy. John norman collins ends was convicted of the murder of eighteen year old karen sue by an an outsider would have assumed collins called handsome by <hes> the newspapers was karen's boyfriend that it was a crime of passion however despite being tried for only one murder collins lynne's was guilty of many many more authorities believed he was notorious that collins was the epsilon not ripper welcome to today and true crime time a podcast original every day. We tell a timely story from true crime history then analyze the historical impact of that day's events vents. I'm vanessa richardson today. Were diving into the conviction of john. Norman collins one of michigan's most infamous serial killers. There's while it was a victory for the justice system for one sergeant on the case. The conviction came at a personal cost due to the graphic nature of today's crimes. Listener discretion is advised. We advise extreme caution for children under thirteen. Let's go back to washtenaw. County county michigan the morning of august nineteenth nineteen seventy around nine a._m. At the end of the worst year of sergeant david lakes life. He got a phone call. The jury had a verdict court would be in and session at nine thirty a. M. david was no stranger to court but as he dressed and told his wife sandra the time had come the thought aww sitting in the wide would and room repulsed him. He wasn't sure which verdict was worse either he and his task force would be proven right but his nephew john would be put behind bars or john would be declared innocent and david had put his family through hell for nothing. When john first came under suspicion david had defended him staunchly he was just a college kid a good catholic boy former captain of his high school football team. Maybe he'd had a rough start in life but his sister-in-law did her best. He was majoring being an education for crying out loud but over the past year the inklings david tried to ignore head grown to full blown convictions uh-huh. No more women had disappeared in the time john norman collins was held in custody as much as he hated to admit it it was more likely than not that his nephew had murdered a woman in david's basement and he'd used david status as sergeant went to help cover up the murders of several more david called for sandra to get in the car. It was a hard day for him but even even harder for his wife. Her sister would be at the courthouse crying over the sun. She believed to be innocent. She'd taken out a second mortgage mortgage to defend him. There wasn't much to discuss on the ride to the courthouse. They both already testified against their nephew but how l. couldn't they last summer they'd gone on an innocent vacation to perfect summer weeks in madison wisconsin and lake michigan while john on stayed at their house to watch the german shepherd before they left sandra gave david in their boys haircuts in the basement all part of a normal all happy family life but when they returned they found the basement floor repainted and their children's hair clippings missing from the trash rush days later the tiny hairs were found inside the body of a murder victim karen sue bynum karen was the latest in a series of uncomfortably similar murders all young brunettes all found with clothing tied around their necks all attributed to the epsilon ripper though the earlier killings had left authorities with no leads the circumstantial substantial evidence in karen's nineteen sixty nine murder pointed directly at john norman collins and the desecration of her corpse smashed the six prior victims officially he was only on trial for one crime but in the court of public opinion and the minds of the the police collins was on trial for seven murders. David knew the month long trial was the most painful for karen sues his family but that didn't make it any easier for the collinses and the lakes sandra and john had been close all his life and john had always call well david his favorite uncle. John played with their elementary school kids all the time had played today would determine termine if david's sons would ever see their cousin john again at washtenaw county circuit court judge. John conlon called those present to order. It was just after nine thirty a._m. And the air was still fresh from the prior evenings thunderstorm david sat in the third row next to sandra who'd brought a rosary in the front row her sister loretta collins had brought a priest john norman collins dressed like he was expecting news of a prestigious internship. Instead of time in prison remained stone-faced at the defendant table table. His hair was neat. Save a forelock that hung over his blue eyes evoking superman like his mother he maintained he he was the hero of this story. The jury entered at nine thirty three a._m. As judge conlon asked for the verdict david held his breath it was career or family but truthfully no one would win. Seven then girls had died horribly mutilated the worst crimes he'd seen in his career. Nothing would ever be the same. The foreman spoke guilty a collective gasp rose. It was a wash of emotions betrayal trail disappointment shame sympathy sadness horror all overwhelming the proud twinge of we got him that usually truly made being an officer so satisfying loretta stared into the distance white faced and immobile. David's niece gayle broke down in tears. John had no reaction whatsoever. Judge kolon thanked the jury and the court was dismissed missed ears ringing. David watched loretta. Throw herself on john. She wailed for her sons. Compromised future ignorant are into the bynum and family still in the room whose daughter's future had been stolen as loretta cried and caressed her son. John remained stoic. He looked to sandra mouthed something and she grabbed david's arm suddenly overcome with what she done done by turning in her nephew when the marshals put john in handcuffs loretta gave david and sandra a look that could burn down a city eddie. What have they done to her little boy the right thing they'd found justice for at least seven women and save the lives of countless more but that didn't make it hurt any less coming up. We'll we'll talk more about how sergeant lake and the michigan state police task force caught the epsilon t- ripper now back to the story a few weeks after his august nineteenth murder conviction john norman collins would be sentenced to life in solitary confinement with hard labour in reaction. He would speak more than he did. The full year prior quote vote. I think they conscientiously tried to give me a fair trial. The jury did not take its task lightly but i think things were blown out of proportion the circumstances around this case. I think it was a travesty of justice which took place in this court over the past six or seven weeks. I hope someday that will be corrected second. I never knew a girl by the name of karen sue vitamin. I never held a conversation with karen sue vitamin. I never took her to a wig shop. I never took her to my uncle's home. I did not take the life of karen sue vitamin and he would maintain his innocence for decades but after colin sentencing there would be no no more doubt a short time into his life sentence authorities would decide. It's too expensive to prosecute him. For the other murders everyone would agree he's guilty and limited resources or best aimed at criminals who are still at large sergeant david lake would continue his distinguished career with the michigan state police promoting justice helping others and remaining an honorable man between nineteen sixty seven and nineteen sixty-nine john norman collins killed at least seven women a college student himself self. He lured his victims from college campuses targeting white brunettes.

October 02, 2019: Jane Seneca Doe

"Today is Wednesday October second two thousand nineteen on this day in nineteen seventy six a body was found along the Seneca highway in Grundy County Illinois. The woman was never identified and Jane Seneca Dough. Oh remains grundy. County's only unidentified murdered person for forty years. Her death has remained unsolved. Although one police officer has vowed to change that welcome to today and true crime podcast original everyday we tell a timely story from true crime history then analyze allies the historical impact of that day's events. I'm Vanessa Richardson and today I'm joined by our guest host Rebecca lavoix Rebecca Echo the author of four true crime books host of the podcast crime writers on and editor of the podcast undisclosed. She's here to discuss some of the historical aspects of the Jane Seneca Doe Case Hello Everyone. I'm thrilled to dive into this mysterious murder. Let's go back to the afternoon of October. Second Nineteen seventy-six along a lonely patch of highway ninety minutes southwest of Chicago. It was the beginning of harvest season. Robbins grandfather had taught her to recognize this telling in jail in the prairie air. She felt the familiar crispness on her cheeks. As he drove her on the tractor their lunch. Break was over and the twelve of your old was excited to see the bounty in their soybean field as they made their way through their farmland. Robin spotted something along the road and pointed out to her grandfather robin assumed it was a deer probably hit by a car but her grandfather grew eerily quiet and immediately mmediately turned the tractor around. He drove her back along route six cryptic then he left Robin with her father. Tom and asked asked Tom to call the police. Robin wasn't sure what was going on but she knew it was bad when her father took the tractor out himself Alf. Tom Drove the tractor toward the patch of Road Robin had pointed out to her grandfather. The heap along highway six wchs sometimes called Seneca highway in that part of the county did look like a deer but as tom grew closer he could see that it was something thing far more sinister a human body around three. PM Two policemen arrived at a grisly scene and joined Tom on the edge of the road. The three of them peered down at a woman's naked body lying in the ditch along the Seneca highway. They all felt sick. The woman had been discarded like trash. A green plastic bag was wrapped around her head secured cured with black electrical tape inside the bag was a colorful knits sweater so new. It still had a price tag on it. Initially initially police wondered if the woman had been suffocated with her own shopping bag the murder investigation launched into action. Police started with the basics. The woman was five seven about one hundred fifty pounds around twenty years old and black. An autopsy revealed that she had died from a single gunshot wound to the back of her head. Her death was violent. Her final moments were likely terrifying. Her fingerprints failed to return a match and for whatever reason her dental record wasn't investigated further her nevertheless police were certain that someone would quickly come forward to claim their Jane Seneca Dough but in the coming days nobody did in the weeks following police had a few flimsy leads but after two months of dog investigation Gatien the woman remained unclaimed and the case went cold the county coroner at the time took pity on her and bought a a cemetery plot for her in Brace Ville Gardner Cemetery in Grundy County on Thanksgiving Day. She was buried in an unmarked grave. The coroner and grave digger were the only ones in attendance soon young Robin would learn exactly what she'd seen on the side of the Seneca Zenica Highway. She'd think about it for the next forty years wondering what happened to that poor girl and where was her family coming up investigators get their first real lead beat on the identity of Jane Seneca Dough now back to the story after Robin Henderson Mitchell pointed out a body on her family's farmland on October second nineteen seventy six the Jane Seneca Doe case would scarcely be touched for forty years despite being unsolved her case was not forgotton when John Callahan joined the Grundy County Coroner's office in Nineteen eighteen ninety four. He was made aware of her case. He said it always just bothered me knowing that we had someone unidentified fide and buried Callahan often visited Jane Seneca does gravesite laying wreaths in lieu of a headstone but throughout out his time with the Grundy County Coroner's Office Callahan found himself frustrated by the lack of available resources to try and identify her rebecca. Our guest host is here to discuss the recent developments in the Jane Seneca Doe case thanks Vanessa in two thousand fifteen eighteen after almost twenty years of waiting coroner. Callahan was finally granted the resources he needed to reopen the case when Grundy County hired a deputy coroner brandon didn't Johnson beginning in early two thousand Seventeen Corner Callahan and deputy coroner. Johnson reopened the case of Jane Senate Godot. They poured over the leads needs and minimal forensics that had previously led police to a dead end. They begged the county to allow them to resume Jane's body for her dental records and once all the necessary paperwork was filed the county granted their request in late two thousand eighteen the men thought they would have to wait until the following spring debris ground but they were lucky the third week of December two thousand eighteen. It was unseasonably warm. The ground was soft enough to excavate and they were able to Zoom Jane Senate Cadeau just before for Christmas in January two thousand nineteen her mandible and Femur were sent to the University of North Texas Center of Human Identification Callahan. Eliana Johnson hoped that the center would be able to build a DNA profile that could potentially match any family members in the area a sketch artist was also able to use a US her remains and crime scene photos to render a new image of what Jane Senate Cadeau looks like the time of her death with the hope that any remaining family members might recognize her her. Come forward and sure enough. A single call came in in late January two thousand nineteen eighty year old woman from the Inglewood would neighborhood in Chicago reached out to Grundy County police she had seen the updated sketch of Jane Senate Cadeau and felt compelled to call she told Deputy Corner Brandon Johnson that her daughter went missing around the same time as Jane Seneca does body was found and she prayed the body might belong to her daughter if for no other other reason than a sense of closure the prospect Phil Johnson with hope perhaps finally Johnson Cadeau could be laid to rest alongside family where she belonged he made the ninety minute trip northeast to Chicago's south side and met with the woman who had called he took a cheek swab to be matched against the DNA then held held his breath but sadly the DNA wasn't a match in April two thousand nineteen. Jane's DNA profile was completed and run through cody's use the national DNA databank but it didn't paying any matches both coroner's. Johnston and Callahan worry that they are on a ticking clock with Jane Senate Cadeau. Oh any remaining family in the area might pass away before getting the chance to identify their loved one. If Jane were alive today she would be well into her sixties. He's it's unlikely her. Parents are still living. She could have siblings or other relatives but they might not live in the area without knowing who she is. It's impossible to say how Jane even got to Grundy County. Perhaps she lived in the area and was killed by a close relative who never wanted to be found. She could have been abducted and killed while on a road trip. She might have been a runaway or have sever ties with her family altogether but Corner Johnson has hope he truly believes that Jane Zeneca Joe has family out there possibly closer to Chicago that would love to know what happened to their beloved daughter sister or friend to date. Jane's Ames case remains unsolved deputy coroner. Johnson taped the artist rendering of Jane Seneca Dough above his desk to act as a constant set reminder that she deserves to be named he hopes to make contact with any remaining relatives before the year is out as he put it.
