Mar 04, 03:32 AM
A blockbuster episode that kicks off with an UPDATE on last week’s story about Little Miss Lake Panasoffkee – direct from the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office.
Then, after a wild story from Florida about a roommate from Hell, we cycle through a terrible trilogy of stories of love gone very, very wrong.
In our Main Event, we launch a deep dive into the 1989 murder of Helen Bass, uncovering a scandalous mystery deep in the heart of Texas. Was the wrong man executed for her murder? Do the killers of Helen Bass roam free? Did Odell Barnes Jr. die so that George W. Bush could be president?
