David Copenhefer was born into a life of wealth and privilege near Dayton Ohio. But, as an adult, David realized that he couldn't make the kind of money that he wanted to, at least not legally. How far was David willing to go to the kind of money he wanted? Was he willing to commit murder?

Join Mike and Gibby as they discuss the case of David Copenhefer. David was put on trial for the murder of John Calkins when he was in his early twenties but was acquitted by a jury of his peers because the case hinged on circumstantial evidence. Copenhefer later moved to Pennsylvania but found out that he couldn't things happen there the way he wanted to either. So, he plotted out an elaborate kidnapping for ransom plot. But, when the woman he kidnapped, 37-year-old Sally Weiner, turned up dead the police began to zero in on him.
