Somebody just one shot. Anybody just in my world in the in the farming world? There are many times, like baby animals will will be suffering. So instead of calling vet to come out and charge me hundreds of dollars to put set animal down. We usually shoot him. Okay. I know it's a horrible thing to say, but you know it's much easier to shoot an animal in kill it other than watch suffer. And if you shoot it in the head, it's pretty quick. So it and I have to tell you, I had to shoot a baby pig. It is the most horrifying thing in the world to do. So I can't imagine shooting your best friend in the face while he's looking at you that are riffing. Yeah. In here you I mean he's you can tell he's crying. Vote so loaded my gun and I ended up circling closer towards him. And he was in the longer has passed by Sean. Oh my God. So here's the thing. He didn't have his gun loaded. They're shooting ducks. I guess it was a handgun water. Well, here's what happened. Yes. He disowned there in the canoe in lake seminal, right? And there's are those, those cypress knees. You know, the stumps that stick out of the water, right? Okay. So he pushes. This poor guy into the water and he's wearing his waiters, you know, and always those with suck you down, while they filled with water. Yeah, he took them off. That's why there's no bites on the waiters. He took them off. And, and so Brian sees Mike, do this, and then he and then his hunting license was in the pocket of the waiters so they found that in his hat came off. So he then grabbed onto one of those cypress knees. So serious life Brian's, like damnit. He's clinging for life. He's, he's not drowning. So that's when he decides he's got to shoot them. Oh my. I mean okay. You have an option there. You don't have to shoot him. You can go over and save fifty through off the boat. That's horrible though. Right. So he shoots him. And then he has to pull him back in the canoe ever tried to move dead. Well, very difficult. No. I'm just talking about like the people passed out in front of me ever. Tried to move somebody's pants. It's they way, like ten times as much as they really way it seems I have never shot a pig in the head. And I've never tried to move dead weight. You need to spend more time with me Missy. And so, you know, all of this has been discussed in our previous podcast, one hundred and one ways year to of a body. First thing is don't tell anybody. Just telling you, buddy, you can always go back to that, one to find out more on that topic. But this guy didn't listen yet because we never would've told you to dump them in the water, and then shoot him somewhere and make them drown pose them into the canoe. And then he takes them back to land. And then he goes and buries him in a shallow grave. Ask how double these cops that they didn't find seventeen union a evidence on the boat. Did they not look at the boat? Did they not look at this map did they not fight a gun? Will they didn't find the man he was completely missing? Remember like with Isabelle, Hellman case in Delray, the woman that fell off the sailboat with the vote, the guy I never found the body, nobody know crying. There's no body, what they do. He buried it somewhere sounds. So what he said, was that. Denise was the mastermind. Okay. And here's Denise Williams, defense attorney and opening arguments began by saying that there is no student about the fact that Mike Williams was murdered. The evidence is going to show the end any doubt, but he was shot in the face and killed by Bryan Winchester, a man. He thought was his friend shot him in the face. Brian Winchester was given full immunity, while in the murder, he committed, so he could help the state take down to niece. Here's her attorney again, Chester is not on trial. In fact, he's never been charged with the murder. He will be able to testify as he pleases about this without any fear that the state will be able to use that testimony against him. But he's here's a witness and he's going to testify that Denise Williams. Helped him plan the murder Bryant. Winchester's testimony is totally uncorroborated. Wow. So yeah, the police believed him. When do you did? I believe him back. I'd be I'd be like the mom. I don't be all because we, we laid that foundation, the alligators don't eat the whole body. No, but I mean, do you think that this guy acted in cahoots with his girlfriend at the time a girl planned it all? Mutually planned it here is he's back on the stand spry Winchester monitor and say that to plan everything, and I was just a dome guy who went along with what she wanted to do. I instigated a lot of it. I helped come up with ideas. I planted a lot of things. But overall it was very neutral humming. We wanted to be together. All right. If I'm a prosecutor, I hear this guy say this. I'm livid at this point. I just gave this guy immunity, and he's, he's willingly admitting he helped plan the murder of his best friend, and they let him walk just so they could get the woman or was it because the insurance company didn't want to pay the one point seven five million dollars. Well, here's part of that she kept paying on the life insurance policy. Even though Mike are has been the dead guy wanted to let it lapse. Oh, well, there you told it to them. There's your motive right there. Okay. Is money. So she this was premeditated. So oh big time. And so, and Winchester, Mary, Denise five years after he died, and she had already gotten the money. Yes, 'cause I. I would assume once he was pronounced dead. The, you know, the insurance company rights, you check right away. You can take seven years, but they must have done it earlier. But before she married him guess what she made him do. So I had a pre NUP. Probably going to say you're going to have any money I thought I would do before the nuptials. Yeah. She couple million bucks here. It's a lot of money before the nuptial. She made Brian get baptized to wash the sin of the murder off him while she's not this woman. She made him take a years worth of marriage counseling. What about her? I know. That, that is that is guilt. Anyway, getting back to where murder here. Okay. So Winchester, Bryan. Winchester, ready name right? He shot him with a Winchester in the face. Is best friend. Mike, Mike Williams, right. Denise Williams is the widow who gets all the money she makes his poor guy Winchester, the lover before she marries go through a year of counseling. And what was the other thing? Two two. Admonish him for in clear cleanse them of the murder. What a wacko. This woman is an eastern married her. He's an idiot. He's an idiot, he married her and then things went south, they got real sour, and she wanted to leave him. And so he takes her, and he kidnaps her puts a gun to her head a good thing. He's a little bit crazy. Call Trump's being around her. I'd be crazy to this woman's nut. She must think she's bulletproof because why would you call the cops you know, he's gonna turn on what why would you think he would keep that Confidencial these veasley because she figured she had, you know, by they wouldn't believe she was part of it. 'cause he sold the insurance policy. He shot him in the face. He buried the guy. Yeah, but she got the money. They both did well, they were married, so she could argue that. So, so this guy gets on the stand did they find her guilty. Tell me they find. Okay. So the Circuit Judge. She was this year. It was this year she was convicted of helping mastermind the killing of her husband nearly two decades ago and she sends to life in prison, plus the Circuit Judge sentenced Denise Williams. Additionally to thirty years for conspiracy to commit murder, she's in there forever, and the guy that pulled the trigger he's out in twenty years for kidnapping her in he'll be out in ten for good behavior. Not sooner. So he let me tell you, he he's a force to be reckoned with if you can easily ply man into killing your husband. This is dangerous. For you. I wouldn't let him I wouldn't want to be anywhere near this man when he gets out either. That's horrible. What he did he shoved him in the water he didn't drown. This is his best friend. How do you know how hard that is to, to somebody? He paddled back by him or maybe had a little electric motor and he's the, the guy's probably to help me. Raymond fay. So he leads police to the body. Well, we'll bones now because I would assume after seventeen years, not much left where the waiters with them just out of curiosity. He took the vest and waiters off in the water. That's right. And he gave those the cops right? I'm sorry with the license follow the story here. Just okay. I'm sorry. So they found the body, they dug it up, and it had a bullet hole right in the middle of the head face to face. No, I think he had a handgun he had his duck Conte, Dino, the duck hunting rifle. I don't know about shooting ducks. But I think it has this big pattern just like the duck breaks spray. So I think he also had a handgun. So he obviously had planned be this guy's evil to. And he said he had a loaded here. He is again. I saw loaded my gun.

Assistant state's attorney John Fuchs put a PowerPoint presentation on the screen and went over the things the jury knows for sure about the case he said, they know that Mike Williams was murdered. And that he was murdered by Brian. He said they know that Brian had been in love with Denise for a long time and that Brian and Denise had gotten married in December two thousand five thirteen days from Denise and Mike's wedding anniversary. He said, they know that Mike had multiple life insurance policies all of which Denise was the sole beneficiary of and that the million dollar policy was drafted by Brian the summer prior to the murder the question, you have he said to the jury is how does Denise that into the murder? He brought up the testimony from Brian's friend, Steven Manoukian who said that Brian had specifically told him after the kidnapping that he had kidnapped in east because she was about. To tell the police which he knows about Mike's murder that was prior to his arrest. He said he brought up the message that Denise had asked Kathy to give Brian's dad, quote, tell Marcus to tell Brian that I didn't say anything he said, those two facts prove that she was an accessory after the fact. For the conspiracy charge. He admitted that they would have to rely on Brian's testimony, but said his testimony was corroborated. He said Denise also had the motive follow the money. He said Brian wasn't the beneficiary. She was and she only waited nineteen days before she applied to get the money nineteen whole days that's a cold individual. That's a person involved in a homicide. He said as for how Denise is guilty of the actual murder. He said she is by law, a principal, quote, if the defendant helped another person or persons commit the crime of first degree murder. The defendant is a principal and must be treated as if she had done all the things the other person. Did he said Denise had a conscious intent that the crime be committed and said that she encouraged and assisted Brian in committing that crime. He added that according to the law to be a principal. She does not have to be present. When the crime is committed. She is in fact, a principal. He said he also asked the jury to consider her lack of emotion as the evidence was presented in his closing arguments. Denise attorney Ethan way ask the jury to remove any taint of Bryan Winchester from the evidence. They heard if you take Bryan Winchester out of the things that have been presented to you. You have nothing. He said he told the jury that there's no tangible evidence that implicates Denise and Mike's murder. He said this case was investigated over numerous years by numerous agencies. The government always thinks that it's the spouse. He said, they're always the suspect but take out Brian Winchester. And what do you have? He said you have a couple of concert tickets, you have testimony that in nineteen ninety eight Angela went out with Brian and the next morning Denise gave her a dirty. Look, you have testimony of a truck parked at a church, but that wasn't in. Nieces he said, and he pointed out that Angela had lived nearby too. And Bryan could have been with her all of that didn't amount to anything everything presented by the state standing on its own doesn't prove anything. He then addressed the kidnapping again. He said Brian was going to do God knows what to Denise with tarp and a gun, and then he questioned why if Brian really knew this deep Dirk secret about Denise having planned her husband's murder. Why would Denise then go to the police and turn him in? And if she ever had any suspicions that Brian had killed Mike wouldn't she have turned him into the police for that? He said the state bought Brian story for that. The jury doesn't have to after deliberating for eight hours the jury returned with their verdicts. Verses that the niece Williams. We the jury fantas follows as kale one of the indictment. The defendant is guilty of conspiracy to commit first grade murder as to count to the jury and the defendant is guilty of first grade murder, but the jury fan as follows has count three of indictment that event is guilty of accessory after the fact of first degree murder guilty of all charges and since she was convicted of murder, she will face an automatic life sentence. After the trial the nieces attorneys filed three motions one asking for new trial, another one seeking an acquittal and a third requesting to interview six of the jurors. In the motion asking for a new trial. Ethan way ruled that there isn't enough evidence to support a guilty verdict and said they have concerns about how the prosecutor told the jury to consider Denise 's lack of emotion during the trial in their motion to interview six of the jurors. They referenced a new story from after the trial that indicated that one of the jurors said they considered Denise 's demeanor and reaction in their verdicts. Denise is scheduled to be officially sentenced in February. As always I'd love to hear what you think about this case. Do you think Denise was involved in the planning of Mike's murder?

"Trigger. When word got around later that afternoon that Mike was missing the Florida wildlife commission along with Mike's friends and family started searching for him. They found his boat which had washed up on the west shore and his Bronco and trailer. They knew Mike had gone hunting that morning, but they were under the impression that he had gone alone. And they had no idea why he hadn't returned. The days passed, and the searches continued the community felt for my ex-wife Denise and their young daughter, adding to the tragedy was the fact that Mike in Denise had plans to celebrate their sixth wedding anniversary on the day. Mike had gone missing. There were extensive searches at lake summit all searches that Brian participated in with everyone around him believing that he was distraught. Desperate and willing to stop at nothing to find his best friend nothing turned up until six months after Mike's disappearance. When suddenly a pair of waiters a jacket a flashlight and a hunting license belonging to Mike was found. But there was something odd about the items all of them were an excellent condition. They certainly didn't look like they had been in the water for six months and the flashlight even still worked. But despite how hard they searched. Mike's body was never recur. Covered. Investigators seem to believe that there had been a tragic boating accident that Mike had gone hunting alone and that his boat had hit a stump causing him to go overboard, and drown in his waiters. And perhaps they couldn't find his body because it had been eaten by alligators. They repeated this theory to reporters. One week. After Mike's personal belongings were found his wife Denise filed a petition in court. She cited the fact that his clothing and hunting license had been found and asked to have him legally declared dead there were life insurance policies, totaling more than one point five million dollars. And Denise had a family to support after all, Mike and Denise had also grown up together. And we're high school sweethearts, Mike was the popular football player and Denise the pretty cheerleader. They graduated high school in nineteen eighty eight attended Florida State University and married in nineteen ninety four. Those who knew Mike knew him to be hard working before he had even graduated. Mike accepted a position as a property appraiser. By all accounts. Mike was a devoted husband and father. He and Denise welcome to baby girl in nineteen ninety nine. She was just eighteen months old when Mike disappeared. In some cases. This might be the end of the story a presumed boating accident with the ongoing theory that Mike spotty was tragically eaten by alligators and his family, his devastated wife and young daughter left to pick up the pieces without him. But that's not where this story ends at all. In fact, it picks up about five years later when much many people following the cases surprise Mike's wife. Denise Mary's Mike's best friend and killer, Bryan Winchester. It was something of a shock to investigators had opened up a cold case investigation into Mike's disappearance. Sure, it could be that Mike's best friend and wife had grown close while comforting each other over their laws or it could be something more sinister. But investigators didn't have any physical evidence to prove that anything was amiss with Mike disappearance back when Mike I went missing the initial team of investigators didn't find anything suspicious about it. And any items they found that had belonged to Mike had long been returned to his family. But still they told reporters that they no longer believed that there had been an accident that they now suspected foul play and even had suspects in mind, and it wasn't just the investigators who had their suspicions. Mike's mother Cheryl was convinced that her son hadn't just died in a boating accident, and she wasn't about to be quiet about her suspicions either. In may two thousand six she took out an ad in the Tallahassee democrat with a picture of Mike and a large headline that read. My son is missing please help me. Find him the ad went on to say quote on the morning of December sixteenth two thousand my son. Jerry, Michael Williams, supposedly went duck hunting at lake Seminole in Snead's, Florida. He never returned at the time of Mike's disappearance. He was thirty one years old. He had duck hunted at lake Seminole for many years when he did not return from hunting that day the thirties. Assumed he drowned and that alligators eight his body. No criminal investigation was done at the time. The ad continued quote eighty people have drowned in lake Seminole since the late eighteen hundreds Mike spotty is the only one that has never been found. Reptile experts have told me that alligators don't hunt or eat in December because the water is to colds. I do not believe my son died in like some all. Cheryl Williams, also worked with the reporter at the Tallahassee democrat to keep Mike's name in the news. She would give various tidbits about the disappearance, but was stopped short of accusing Brian or Denise. When reporters contacted Brian Denise to get their take on the matter. They declined to comment instead saying in an Email that they loved Mike but just wanted their privacy. But everything would change in August of two thousand sixteen turning the entire case onto its head.

Sereda murderer husband, Mike Williams, and a disappearance case that kind of went nuts. According to the talahassee democrat, Mike Williams at thirty one year old real estate appraiser went missing after an early morning duck hunting expedition on December sixteenth two thousand on lake seminal in Jackson county, Florida. Investigators initially speculated that Williams had drowned hadn't been eaten by alligators. But at the insistence of his mother who did not believe the. Alligator theory law enforcement eventually began investigating and deemed him a suspicious missing person, a huge break in the long cold case came seventeen years later when Mike's former best friend Brian Winchester who married William's widow Denise five years after the disappearance confessed to the killing Williams remains were found in grave about five miles away from the home where he grew up in Tallahassee where his mother still lives. Now. It's a very interesting case. It's very sorted. It is we're gonna find out is that these this was a group of four people. Mike Williams was married to Denise Williams high school sweetheart right had been together than they were sixteen years old. Mike Williams was a work all Hollick. He was making two hundred K year busted, his wrong. They said towards your your Tallahassee cash that's not gain. That's big money. That's big money for Tallahassee. So we as he's so he's out there hustle and grind. Maybe. Maybe he's living. Maybe he's leaving something on the. Table when it came to his relationship, daddy's always working well ones. What do you get whatever? You know what I'm saying? Everyone has to do. They want to niece Williams and Bryan Winchester during this time period began to a relationship.

And then one day Mike goes duck hunting. And he never comes back who did it go. Did he go duck hunting with the do't know, he went alone? Okay. He went to loan to his favorite spot. But they're saying is that possibly that. He did not go alone. That maybe Brian met up with him. We're gonna find out is that Brian Winchester shot his buddy and buried him in a shallow grave. They're going to go on to say was that it looked like that maybe that he had there was a ship on his boat. There was an accident and he fell out and he drowned. And that the alligators eighties body, which is why no one found which they said, they're eighty people have died in like seminal. Okay. No, all all the other bodies have been found so say, we'll maybe alligators took care of them. But then they find out. Well, actually alligators this happened December alligators don't feed in the winter months. So there was no way for the alligators to eat it. There's a lot of different extenuating circumstances. The fucking engine on the boat. The gas tank was full they're like, well, he actually fell out of this boat than probably the the engine would have kept going. And then it would have run out of gas would have spent a lot of different kind of synchronize, right? Got the big kicker was Brian Winchester who got married to Denise who is a real spicy little pepper will now according to Brian we just clearer. We we clarify the Brian Winchester this dude was looking at some significant time hugely plea deal with the prosecution to only twenty years he takes the stand flips on Denise and his store. Sorry. I don't know if it's true or not because of the because of the circumstances surrounding it. I very interesting because to the reason why Brian Winchester was going to jail after the after all of this was for the kidnapping of Denise Williams. Now Denise in him. I got into a fight they broken up eight stop after dating awful because they got married right after he died to collect the money collected one point five million dollars.

They have not given a motive for the shooting. The European European parliament building is on lockdown there. No one can leave. Here's an interesting addition to this the prosecutor in Strasbourg declared that the incident was terrorist related and announced that an inquiry had been opened into an assassination and attempted assassination. Wow. We've mentioned that the members of the European parliament are in Strasbourg right now. That's where it's it's a seated officially and some of the members of parliament apparently were in that area at the time of the shooting. I mean, seven o'clock at night so carrying out about so there may have been specifically somebody targeted if in fact, they say that they're opening this into assassination and attempted assassination. Well, there was a mystery a young father who in December of two thousand guy by the name of Mike Williams. Decided to drive out to lake Seminole in Florida. And she was going to spend a few hours duck hunting on his boat. This is what he did. This is what Mike did he was known for great hunting stories crazy hunting stories is he had the best luck of any hunter. And this is just how he spent his spare time except this time December two thousand he goes out to spend a few hours duck hunting. But he never comes back. Now, the original report they searched for him for a long time more than a month like a month and a half. They looked for this guy. But they couldn't find him. And they couldn't find any sort of body. Authorities came up with this decision. And it's to be honest in Florida. It's not really that. Crazy. Did he probably fell over in some sort of a boating accident or fell out of the boat while wearing waiters and was eaten by alligators? This search lasted for forty four days the body never found. So that seemed to be the plausible excuse the gator theory. However, never sat well with Mike's family. It's especially didn't set sit. Well, with his mom, Cheryl. She couldn't fight that mother's intuition that something more evil had happened to her son. Well, guess guess who is on trial today for the death of Mike Williams? It is the wife and to understand how this all unraveled. You've got to go back to the year two thousand. Actually, a couple of years before then because it seems that the wife was having an affair with Mike's best friend for a couple of years, and he admitted this as much I mean, he was talking about how in nineteen Ninety-seven. He had a wife. He itself was married. He had a kid from his wife, and he's got this affair with Denise on the side. No one saw this coming by the way. Right. Denise and Mike were high school sweethearts. They went to a Christian school. They were active in extracurriculars throughout high school. He was voted best personality. She was best dressed. They were very happy. They were excellent in academics. Mike was student council. President everyone liked him. Everyone liked her. They were this this nice little sugary couple. They graduate high school in nineteen eighty eight and they graduate, by the way beside the best friend and his soon to be wife, Bryan Winchester, and then his future bride, Cathy, which I mean, she only plays a minor part in all of this. But the four of them, you know, become to married couples. They both end up going on and having kids, but that affair between Brian. And Denise was the beginning, it appears of the end of Mike's life and Denise and Mike even though they were married, even though they had as high school sweethearts appeared to be perfect for each other. Apparently. Fell out of love rat each other's throats as they were approaching their sixth anniversary, they actually had a couples retreat planned. Maybe to mend things maybe to spackle the cracks in their marriage. We will talk about what happened because they never made it to that couples retreat. Obviously when we come back.

I've your host Joe joined as always by Devin, Steve, and this week we're going to talk about another fantastic mystery. We're going to talk about the mysterious case of Jerry, Michael Williams of Tallahassee, Florida not was family and friends as Mike. We are going to call him the subject here. Oh, my okay, fine. We'll call them Mike. Mike was thirty one years old one. He was last seen. He'd been married to his wife to knees for about six years. They had one year old daughter. Yeah, I know. And all by the way I'm gonna give shot up to Rene who suggested this Rene if you're still out there, she suggested this back in twenty fifteen. So it's been a while. Thanks. Yeah. We asked the questions from WALE whiter earlier. They're not. So we just we would let this one just sort of ripened for a while. Yeah. Yeah. Back to Mike. Mike was a real estate appraiser. He was known to be very hard worker made really good money. He and his wife Denise had bought a very nice upscale house in these Tallahassee which I guess the better part of town. I don't know. Never been there. Being responsible. Parents took out a life insurance policy on Mike for a million bucks that when they that is when they took out the life insurance policy was after their daughter was born believe. So. Yeah. Yeah, it was not not too long after that. Yeah, that's that's often when people start thinking about stuff like that when they're about advocate or just had a kid, I'm thinking about it as about to get married mostly because I definitely plan on murdering him. Exactly, yeah. Get more on out. Well, yeah, honeymoon AUstralia, yeah. Well. Oh, back to our story. The insurance broker in this case was guy named brand Winchester who was a good friend of my actually, apparently some sort of childhood acquaintance of his wife's dad become somehow good friends. Bryan Winchester by the way is now in prison, but that's a whole different story. Is he related of Winchester fame? I know I did that. I don't know. We covered this story before because this sounds really, really familiar to me now. I don't think now it's kind of similar to some of the other disappearance stories. It sounds really, really familiar, but. Okay going. Okay. Well, back to Mike, he was kinda into dot com thing and sometimes intendo game. Yeah, no different one real duct. Actually people are still do that. It's called analog dot com. Sometimes, yeah, you take your analog shotgun which is made of steel and plastic, and you go out to the lake and hide until the duck show up and then Bluey. I guess the nice thing is though in analog duck hunting, the dog doesn't laugh at you when you miss. Okay. I can also in the ideal. You don't shoot the dog shoot the dog and duck hunting not done. The stopped him from laughing. Oh, yeah. Your dog is laughing at you for sure, but you don't hear it. Yeah. Also don't shoot him, don't shoot. They will shoot back now, but on the. Yeah, let's go back to our store, December sixteenth, the two thousand Mike left the house early to go hunting and he never returned. Eventually his boat was found abandoned on lake seminal, which is a huge reservoir about forty miles north west of Hassi and the Georgia border. It's where it's gotta. You can find on the maps easy. It's where these two large rivers come together and they've dammed it there. So it's gigantic V-shaped lake. That's got like almost four hundred miles of coastline. It's big big like that. A typical place for him to go dot com. Ting that I don't know. I don't know. Whereas favourite spunk are. I don't know why pick that particular spot because I mean, there are other decent size lakes near Tallahassee, but you know, maybe the duck hunting was just especially good up there or something. Yeah. But anyway, the boat was found abandoned. Mike was nowhere to be seen dead or alive. So there was a general assumption by the police that he'd fallen out of his boat and drowned, which is not an unreasonable assumption really. But they dragged sir. Celek really extensively, and they never found his body which is a little weird because I mean, actually something like about eighty. People have drowned in that lake, and they've always found the body. Yeah. It's a reservoir, so, but I want to find the body on the other hand, you know, they're also lots of alligators in that like so, you know. Yeah, you know what they do for a living, right? Yeah. Okay. It's like a game of frogger. You run across them. Logged alligator to the other side. Yeah. Now, if they're if they're kind enough to line themselves up like that, and yeah, it's all about timing seen that picture though. You know how Gators and crocodiles, forgive frozen, know how they sit underwater. They're not like logs their nose up there at airlink at an angle, so like their heads are floating, but their feeder on their back feeder on the bottom or some reason that extra creepy to me. I don't know. Doesn't make sense. They got more leverage to launch themselves action quickly. Yeah, do that's probably why it is more scary and weird to me anyway. Sorry. Oh, alligators are really kind of fascinating. You know, they're kind of almost kind of cute in sort of prehistoric Mitra head off kind of way. They're terrified. T rexes are kinda cute. Yeah. Yeah, they're cute. Well, anyway, back to Mike police concluded that it was a drowning and probably got eaten alligators close case and makes waiters were found in the lake about six months after disappeared. And then about seven months after disappeared, his widow, Denise petition, having declared legally dead. Eventually she married my buddy Brian Winchester who's the guy that's in jail now. Thank you. Sure. We've never talked about. Did this. This. Even if it wasn't this story sounds really, really familiar. I swear. I know something about this now. You know, nothing. Well, I mean, I check the episode list because I when I was reading it, I was like, those sound familiar. We haven't done it before. I, the thing about the waiters just really stuck in my mind. Okay, kicking. Got, I got that from cartoons. No, no cartoons because you know, like an alligator like eats a person and they're wearing clothes, and then spits the shoes back up. Zydus assume that was why that's okay. Probably was that's probably where he got it from, but but Mike's gone cases closed, but his mother, Cheryl Williams did not accept the drowning Syria. She kept nagging police to reopen the case. And along about two thousand four, they did somebody did a little research and if out that alligators don't eat in the wintertime, print little water gets cold. They kind of dormant. Yeah, that's what I was mentioning earlier when you were saying about the the frozen alligators when water freezes. You see all these little stout sticking out of the ice because they're keeping their heads above water just enough so they can breathe, but they're kind of stuck their place. It's it's the creepiest thing in the world. You creeped out by angled alligators, look at frozen on, actually go to a frozen lake some time and stop their noses up and kill them. And then just say, I killed an alligator with my bare hands. That's probably legal legal Bromley probably actually, I'd be too scared to do because you know what, if what, if the alligator wakes up and like breaks the ice and kills me. What's his name that Adam Sandler movie with the one wooden hand. Yeah. Yeah, that does happen by the way. Yeah, I knew summit something that worked with was in Florida, and they one of those parks that has all the Gators and apparently somebody while they were there kind of lost his hand because you got a little fresh with an alligator. Nobody likes fresh allergies. Yeah, alligators don't like fresh humans eaten, but they don't like it. Smart alecky. Okay. So yeah, but anyway, after they figured that out, then that makes the lack of a body seem a little stranger. So they reopened the investigations, right? Yeah. But that's about where the case still is. It's it's been open for all these years since two thousand four, but no real new evidence has come to lie. There spent a lot of speculation about what his fate was a lot of different theories out there. So what the hell happened to them here are some of the theories accidental drowning, which of course the first presumed theory. Now, the one is that maybe committed suicide. Maybe you know, life was just team. She decided to kill himself himself to the Gators or I like this one a little bit. He faked his death by leaving his empty boat on a lake full of alligators. You know, that would explain no body and it just went off to start a new life somewhere or maybe he was murdered. Everybody has murder on the brain ever since that Steven Avery documentary thing. I know I know all this is we just murder murder where you know most people don't actually die of murder, believe it or not. Yeah, statistically it's unlikely. All right. And then we have one last year and this is actually my personal favorite, which is maybe the ducks got him. I mean, turned the tables on them, so that would also be murder in a way. Wouldn't it not if it stocks though it would be foul play.
