Description

On New Year’s day of 2012, 38 year old Shelby Wilkie went missing. She left behind her three month old daughter. Shelby had been planning to leave her abusive husband. Michael Wilkie eventually admitted to burning Shelby’s body, though he insisted he didn’t kill her. He claimed that she committed suicide due to post partum depression. But the blood evidence in their home told a very different story.

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
