116. United in Murder: Gerald and Alice Uden

 In 1980, 32-year-old Virginia Uden and her two sons, 11-year-old Richard and 10-year-old Reagen, left for a day of fun but when they still had not arrived home, Virginia’s mother knew something was not right. After a fruitless search, Virginia’s ex-husband Gerald and her mother Claire phone police to file a missing person’s report. What no one knew at the time, would be that the case would go cold for many years until a man came forward with a peculiar story involving another murder.

115. Killing A Lie: Bart Whitaker


Ethan wrote us another great script!  Thank you, Ethan!

The Whitaker's were a perfect family. They were well known in the affluent city of Sugar Land Texas. But things aren't always what they seem.  On the evening of  Dec. 10, 2003, the family of four were gunned down as they returned home from a celebratory dinner.  Mom, Tricia Whitaker, a retired teacher, and her youngest son 19-year-old, Kevin, died from their injuries. The dad, Kent, and oldest son Bart survived.

Originally, police thought the Whitakers had interrupted a burglar but what they uncovered was a conspiracy to commit murder.

114. The Drug Addict, the Porn Star and the Heiress: Pati Margello Murder

 Today we are beginning our case at the Del Mar Resort Hotel in Las Vegas and it is far from a resort. It is the kind of hotel that rents by the hour and adult movies are included in your room rental. The hotel has the usual cast of seedy characters that you expect on rotation.  The Del Mar is no stranger to despair and darkness so on August 5, 1998, when a couple checks into the hotel and reports to the front desk that there is a putrid smell coming from the air conditioner, it is not out of the ordinary that someone may have died in the neighboring room. What was out of the ordinary was that the body was located inside the air conditioning vent making this not only a murder but the dead woman is at the center of what would become yet another huge scandal involving one of the richest American families ever to grace the East Coast.

113. The Fake Doctor: Dean Faiello


It is Monday, April 14 2003 when co-workers of Maria Cruz become concerned.  35-year-old Maria was always a dependable, conscious employee who would just not show up for work. A few of her employee friends decide to swing by her apartment to check on her. They arrive at her home where they are greeted by a stack of newspapers on her front door. They knock on the door and no one answers it. Clearly, Maria is not home and has been gone for longer than just a day or two but they are sure she would have told them if she were planning a trip. One of her friends contacts her uncle who lives in nearby Queens and he immediately calls the police to report her missing and file a missing person’s report on Maria. What happened to Maria Cruz?
