Description

In 1974, a feisty, outspoken woman in St. Augustine, FL became embroiled in a ridiculous feud with her neighbors, one that went public and turned most of the old city against her. Then she was brutally murdered with a machete on her own front porch, in broad daylight. And her murderer was set free.

49: The Murder of Debra May Helmick and the Reckoning of Serial Killer, Larry Gene Bell
In June of 1985, residents of the Midland area of South Carolina were frozen in fear. Two girls were kidnapped and murdered and the sadistic man responsible relished in making phone calls to one of the families. This is part two of the case of serial killer Larry Gene Bell, covering the abduction and murder of nine year old Debra May Helmick and the investigation into both murders. I also discuss the trials for both murders, and the execution of Larry Gene Bell. I’ll be in New Orleans for CrimeCon this year! It’s June 7-9th. To buy your ticket, use promo code FRIEDCRIME19.

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. If you haven’t checked out their show, please go right now and download the Gillette episodes. They covered this case in long form, with extensive interviews from many people involved.

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
