The Minister Who Almost Got Away With Murder

Husbands who murder their wives often go to great lengths to concoct stories about their disappearance or sudden death. They may give tearful appeals for help on television newscasts. They typically think that they are smarter than the police and can get away with murder. But there are no perfect crimes.   Murderers often slip up when they try to make the crime scene look like what they’ve seen on television shows.  Eagle-eyed investigators can see right through it. This True Crime Reporter™ Confidential goes inside of two cases from the career of former federal prosecutor Bill Johnston. In the first case, a charismatic Baptist preacher in Waco initially fools the police into believing that his wife committed suicide. In the second case, a husband tries to murder his wife by setting off a bomb in her office to kill everyone so the police won’t suspect she was the target.  We want to be your favorite true crime podcast.

Don't Fence Me In - Why No Texas Prison Could Hold This Inmate

Willie Nelson sings about riding in the wide-open spaces with lyrics titled “Don’t Fence Me In”. “Don’t Fence Me In” was the ballad of Texas inmate Dennis Wayne Hope. Hope bragged that there wasn’t a prison in the state of Texas that could hold him. The convicted armed robber went as far as to imitate the prisoner played by Paul Newman in Hollywood’s Cool Hank Luke. During a television interview with investigative reporter Robert Riggs, Hope demonstrated how he could use the plastic refill of a ballpoint pen to unlock handcuffs.  This episode called “Don’t Fence Me In” chronicles Hope’s prison escapes and the fugitive hunters who get on this trail.
