Ep 65: Justice Delayed? The Mike Williams Case

On December 16, 2000, 31-year-old Mike Williams went duck hunting, only to never be heard from again. Authorities told reporters that they suspected he got into a boating accident, drowned, and was eventually eaten by alligators. But 17 years and two arrests later, would the truth finally come out?   NOTE: If you’re interested in this case, the Minds of Madness Podcast has also covered it this week - They do a great job of looking into the minds and circumstances of this tragic case and the lengths a mother’s love will go to, to bring justice for her son.

Ep 64: His Name Was Generro Sanchez

In December 2012, 18-year-old Jerrod Murray was arrested and charged with the murder of 18-year-old Generro Sanchez, a fellow college student. In a chilling interrogation, Jerrod matter-of-factly describes the murder and when asked if he has any remorse, he says no. But would the laws in Oklahoma make it easy for Jerrod to not face responsibility for what he did?   In the episode, I speak with Generro's mom, Jeana, who talks about what happened to her son, and what she and her family are still dealing with today.   UPDATE: An earlier version of this episode incorrectly stated that those who are found guilty with a mental defect would be sent to prison if they are ever deemed to not be a threat to society again. A later version clarifies this - After a defendant is found guilty with a mental defect, they are then sent to a maximum security hospital for the same amount of time as if he or she had been sentenced to a “regular prison.” From there, they are then transferred to a minimum security building while they are being considered for release.

Ep 32: Who Was Behind the Death of Rusty Sneiderman?

On November 18, 2010, a tragedy occurred at the Dunwoody Prep Daycare in Dunwoody, Georgia. A young father was gunned down after dropping off his 2-year-old son. The person who pulled the trigger was caught shortly thereafter, but was there a conspiracy behind the death?  NOTE: DeKalb County in this instance should be pronounced "Dee-kab." Please excuse the instances in the episode where I pronounce it differently. :)  Sponsors of this episode: Virtue Labs: Visit www.virtuelabs.com and use code COURT They Walk Among Us Podcast  Please consider supporting this podcast with as little as $1 a month via Patreon.com/CourtJunkie.
