Apr 14, 12:00 PM

In this episode, we delve deeper into the infamous 1954 murder of Marilyn Sheppard, an event that unraveled in Bay Village, Ohio, and ignited a nationwide media storm. We examine the initial night of the crime, the intense scrutiny faced by her husband, Sam Sheppard, and the dramatic legal battles that followed, including a conviction, a subsequent overturning on appeal, and a retrial. Through expert interviews and detailed analyses, we explore how this case not only captivated public attention but also shaped legal precedents regarding media influence on trials and the presumption of innocence in the American legal system.
