In late November of 1989, the burning body of a 33 year old woman was found in a wooded area in the Mississippi Delta. Olivia Browning was the ex-wife of a prominent planter’s son named Ralph Hand III. Local gossips said that though Ralph and Olivia divorced, they had a passionate but toxic relationship and couldn’t stay away from each other. After Ralph confessed, and the media gushed about this southern gothic soap opera, to the detriment of Olivia’s character. Did public perception as well as the Hand family’s political connections influence the justice Olivia’s family received?Hosted and produced by Erica KelleyResearched and written by Haley Gray & Erica KelleyOriginal Graphic Art by Coley HornerOriginal Music by Rob Harrison of Gamma RadioEdited by Chaes Gray of Gray MultimediaEpisode Suggested by: Rials McWilliams & Cera McCool Sponsors: Best Fiends StoryWorth.com/southernfried BetterHelp.com/southernSources: https://www.southernfriedtruecrime.com/118-the-murder-of-olivia-browningMerch | Donate | In the Media:https://southernfriedtruecrime.com@southfriedtruth (Twitter) @southernfriedtruecrime (Insta)

On August 1, 2000, the body of a young black woman was found behind a middle school in Mayfield, Kentucky. The new mother, 18 year old Jessica Currin, was found partially clothed, badly burned and already decomposing. The incompetence of local police doomed the case from the beginning. The Kentucky State police and then the KBI eventually took over the investigation. But it took a local homemaker, an amateur sleuth named Susan Galbreath, to finally make a break in the case.

In 1994, a New York writer released a very southern gothic, non-fiction, crime novel. “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil” became a national sensation. John Berendt’s seductive prose and his cast of eccentric characters drew readers into the lush culture of Savannah, Georgia. But the central plot was a scandal from 1981. Semi-closeted socialite, Jim Williams, had shot his lover dead in the study of his home. He went through four trials for the murder of Danny Hanson, a record in Georgia at the time. Berendt’s book became a movie in 1997, directed by Clint Eastwood. Many people don’t know the real story of the Mercer House murder. This is a look at the case, as well as the book and movie that captivated the nation.

The Death of Andrew Lewis -- a beloved musician is shot. His ex-girlfriend was a witness. The shooter, Eli Miller, was her date and he had been trying to assault Andrew all evening. Miller would claim it was self-defense. But how is shooting someone in the back of the head self-defense?*This is the annual rerelease of Andrew's episode. I wish there was an update, but sadly, there isn't. I will continue to release this episode on the anniversary of Andrew's death every year in the hopes that someone new listens. I know new listeners often skip old episodes, and the audio is not perfect on this one, but it is worth it. And if you feel the need to speak up, the contact info for the Montgomery DA's office is below. The Lewis family has lost hope in receiving justice for their beloved son and brother, but I intend to do everything I can to make sure this travesty of an investigation is not forgotten. Original Music featured on this episode: "Song for Me" - Written and recorded by Andrew Lewis.  Download Andrew's music for free. His family wants to share it with the world. He deserves to be heard. And so does his case. https://www.reverbnation.com/andrewlewismusichttps://www.facebook.com/andrewlewismusicSpecial thanks to Laura Lewis and Andrew MohneySources: https://www.southernfriedtruecrime.com/8-justice-4-andrewMontgomery County District Attorney's Office Contact Info:email: mcdaadmin@mc-ala.orgphone: (334) 832-2550Address:251 South Lawrence Street,Montgomery, Alabama 36104Written, hosted, produced by Erica KelleyResearched by Erica KelleyOriginal Graphic Art by Coley Horner Original Music by Rob Harrison-Gamma RadioEdited by Chaes GrayMerch | Donate | In the Mediahttps://southernfriedtruecrime.comhttps://www.facebook.com/southernfriedtruecrime@southfriedtruth and @kericak (Twitter) | @southernfriedtruecrime (Insta) https://www.youtube.com/southernfriedtruecrime
In 1986, a young mother was brutally murdered in her Austin, Texas home, early in the morning, while still sleeping in her bed. Her husband had left for work at 5:30am. Her three year old son was left alone in the house. Unfortunately, the night before, her husband had become disappointed when his wife had been too tired to make love. Michael Morton loved his wife, but he left a note for her that would definitely sting any wife. And based mainly on that note alone, corrupt investigators made sure he spent 25 years in prison for the murder of his wife, Christine Kirkpatrick Morton.

109: The Bloody Bruces

In the late 80’s and early 90’s, one family of brothers terrorized the Benton County area of northwest Tennessee. The Bruce brothers had rap sheets but the local sheriff could rarely make charges stick because the family intimidated anyone in the community who dared to defy them. In 1991, they were suspected in a double murder and arson but it would take a federal task force to convince witnesses to come forward. The Bloody Bruces and their equally evil matriarch, Kathleen, would continue to terrorize their community even from behind bars as they awaited trial.

From 1972 to 1976, the pastor, his wife and their two small children were terrorized with bombings and shootings. A powerful man named Horry Watts acted as the small town kingpin of Sellerstown.

You are right when you stated there are simularities between these diabolical twosome and Canadian monsters Paul Bernardo and Karla Holmolka. I was hoping Mary Ann Shore would still be alive. I would love to know what her life was like after the verdicts were given. She should have been hounded to her very grave. FYI, Paul Bernardo is still up here rotting away in prison, as he should be. Karla changed her name to Leanne Teal. She proved wiley enough to marry the Thierry Bourdelais, who is the brother of her lawyer that represented her. They currently live in a Montreal neighbourhood and have three children. She is hated, despised and hounded by everyone at every opportunity, as she should be.

I like the name "Chicken-Fried". Some mental impairments are treatable. Some are not. We can learn all about female budding serial killers from what is studied in other countries. There is no reason not to kill this warped, piece of shit freak.

Love your podcast! Your vocal tone is perfect for this. I've listened to a few episodes and the research is top notch. The blues music in the background is not overpowering at all. Keep up the great work. ❤❤❤

Hard to understand why Christa was jealous ? in another episode it is noted that Colleen and Tadaryl had sex while Christa was away. Not a reason for murder.

In this case, lack of previous criminal history should not matter. why give them brownie points because this evil deed was the first that popped into their heads? Who cares that this was their first crime? This crime was so heinous that if this is what they went to immediately, what would they be capable of in the future?! No, it's a shame they didn't all go down the same way.

What would I do? Well since you asked...death penalty for all of them, and yes I could look their parents in the eyes. Where were they when their kids so obviously began veering down the wrong path? It is difficult for me to have sympathy for these teenagers because there was no reason for these murders. It is terrifying that such a small issue set them off. We are all better off without them on the streets. Most troubling is that they were incapable of any sympathy for the small and completely innocent children. Our brains don't develop until much later...some studies say 35, but we can't give people a free pass to indulge their every impulse because of that. And, empathy/sympathy is something we are entirely capable of by 16. I'd have voted to put the 16 year old down as well, for the betterment of our society. And again, I could look the one parent he didn't kill in the eye when I voted, no problem.

So what if it took him 27 minutes to die. Did you ask how long the two little girls suffered before they died!? Drowning in their own blood had to be painful.

you know what's cruel and unusual? the terrorizing and murder of those 2 children! 6 and 7 years old. I don't care about your criminal history at that point. you cannot be redeemed.

Another good case but the hatred this host has for white people is astonishing. The killer was black and she still brings race to the table. Hello Erica you're white. Your voice is great for storytelling but leave the politics out. We get enough of that on TV which is why most listen to these type of podcasts.

Don't like how castbox knows which city I live in. just got a targeted ad for new neighborhoods in my city. this app doesn't connect to my GPS, how does it know my location?
