Description

Double jeopardy protects our citizens from malicious prosecution. But every now and then, the good guys lose. And the bad guy benefits from this protection we all enjoy. The Brenda Schaefer case is an extreme example of dedicated police work and earnest prosecution still losing to abject evil.

Special thank you to author Bob Hill. His book, Double Jeopardy, was an incredible resource in researching this case.

41: The Unresolved Slayings of Gary & Stephanie Gillette
Just before Christmas of 1985, a Corpus Christi couple was brutally slain with a hatchet and knife as they slept in their home. A local policeman was charged with the murders. The DA dropped the charges almost two years later due to lack of evidence, though it was a very strong circumstantial case. 34 years later and no other persons of interest have been investigated. #justice4GilletteIf you have any information about this tragic case, please contact the Corpus Christi police department at 361-886-2600.Thank you to Erica and Vincent from gone cold podcast for their generous collaboration with me on this case.

8: #justice4Andrew: The Death of Andrew Lewis (Update & Remastered)
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?I have updated and remastered this episode. I spoke to Andrew's sister, Laura, who told me that the DA's office has no interest in pursuing charges against Eli Miller nor did they even investigate further. The 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.

And so does his case. https://www.reverbnation.com/andrewlewismusichttps://www.facebook.com/andrewlewismusicSpecial thanks to Laura Lewis and Andrew MohneyWritten, hosted and produced by Erica KelleyOriginal Graphic Art by Coley Horner Original Music by Rob Harrison of Gamma Radiohttps://southernfriedtruecrime.comhttps://www.facebook.com/southernfriedtruecrimehttps://www.patreon.com/southernfriedtruecrimehttps://whatamaneuver.net/collections/southern-fried-true-crime (merch shop)@southfriedtruth and @kericak (Twitter) | @southernfriedtruecrime (Insta) Montgomery County District Attorney's Office Contact Info:email: mcdaadmin@mc-ala.orgphone: (334) 832-2550Address:251 South Lawrence Street,Montgomery, Alabama 36104
