Description

The actress Wyn Reed had that powerful combination of charisma, beauty and smarts. She was such a talent that a team of movie producers couldn’t believe it when the 28 year-old Wyn agreed to play the lead — a killer—in their upcoming, small-budget, horror movie. What the filmmakers didn’t know, as they got on location, was that Wyn wasn’t really Wyn. That was all make believe. But the killer part? That was real. This original podcast series from Keith Morrison and Dateline NBC tells a story even Hollywood couldn’t have imagined. Subscribe now and join us for the first two episodes on April 13th.

But if Shane scheduled the notary, then why was Kelly, Tucker and Lori at the house?? Did they go to the house prior and just waited there for Shane to arrive?

so many aspects are heartbreaking. hearing this woman transform into a gelatinous sobbing puddle as the realization dawns on her that she is being thrown under the bus, and of course the final outcome.

This podcast is fascinating. Thank you for your amazing ability to both, be a great journalist, and to weave a tale; to draw me in to the person's life of whom you're telling.

WARNING This episode includes an audio recording of a man dying. It shows the noises an actual human being made after being fatally shot with no warning immediately preceding the audio. It is extremely disturbing. Please be aware of that before listening.

a recent date line I saw was almost the same scenario a family dynamics, but the father was the killer and the daughter was the planner they got 68 and 48 years respectively. then from prison the daughter tried to develop a hit upon her ex mother-in-law using her mother to transfer money to the hitman, and even her mother got as much time as Tucker got for pulling the trigger. meanwhile Tucker's mother gets the house/ farm and no jail time. doesn't make sense. Small town and cobid or not, she got away with murder.

The way they pronounce Aisling...😂. It's a Celtic name that's supposed to be pronounced like Ash-ling, Ash-lin, or Ash-leen. 🤷‍♀️😁

I think I have fallen prey to the sunken costs fallacy with this podcast: I've trudged along this far, I might as well make it to the end. even if it moves at about .5 mph

Kelly & Tucker got away with 1st degree murder. Kelly planned it and Tucker carried out that plan.

Lesson: if your young and attractive you're going to get a better deal in the criminal justice system.
