51. Bad Man in Aviators

Newton Kansas sits in America’s heartland with fields of wheat and cornfields as far as the eye can see. The small town of 19,000 is big on family, God, and rarely, does anyone lock their front doors. They all know each other as many have grown up and grown old having never left their small hometown. It is a trusting community with a long line of families raising families but that trust was shattered in the spring of 1994 when a stranger knocked on Rhonda Krehbiel's front door.
Join Jen and Cam as we discuss "The Bad Man in Aviators" on this episode of Our True Crime Podcast.

  1. This is old news to you guys now I'm sure, but I recently discovered this case through working on my girlfriend's family tree--Chester's then-wife, identified on your podcast as "Jenna," is her second cousin, although they don't know each other--and felt like I should bring you some interesting information I found in contemporary newspapers via that was missing from your podcast. To answer your question as to whether "Jenna" and Chester are still married, they are not, she is happily remarried and her marriage to Chester was annulled when--get this--she learned that he had stolen the identity of a Matthew Sean Murphy from Arizona and was using it when they met. Murphy had died in 1989 and a driver's license was filed using his name a few months later. "Jenna" never even knew Chester's real name until all of this happened. She also testified against Chester in the trial, acting as a witness and testifying that he was known to wear aviators. As for Murphy, papers said Murphy had been struck by a motorist while he was riding his bicycle. No connection between the accident and Chester, though--the driver was a church pastor who may have been having a diabetic incident when he lost control of the vehicle. Anyway, nothing particularly material to the actual murder cases, but I thought you might find the stolen identity wrinkle interesting. Thanks for covering the case!
