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. #justice4Gillette If 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. Erica and Vincent take cases that have been forgotten. Every victim and every family deserves justice, no matter how cold the case and that is gone cold podcast’s mission. And a very special thank you to Shea, Kristie and Candace, the daughters of Gary Gillette and stepdaughters of Stephanie Gillette, for trusting me in telling their story.

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. Original Music featured on this episode: "Song for Me" - Written and recorded by Andrew Lewis.  Download Andrew's music for free. His family wants to share it with the world. He deserves to be heard. And so does his case. https://www.reverbnation.com/andrewlewismusic https://www.facebook.com/andrewlewismusic Special thanks to Laura Lewis and Andrew Mohney Written, hosted and produced by Erica Kelley Original Graphic Art by Coley Horner Original Music by Rob Harrison of Gamma Radio https://southernfriedtruecrime.com https://www.facebook.com/southernfriedtruecrime https://www.patreon.com/southernfriedtruecrime https://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.org phone: (334) 832-2550 Address: 251 South Lawrence Street, Montgomery, Alabama 36104
