In late November of 1989, the burning body of a 33 year old woman was found in a wooded area in the Mississippi Delta. Olivia Browning was the ex-wife of a prominent planter’s son named Ralph Hand III. Local gossips said that though Ralph and Olivia divorced, they had a passionate but toxic relationship and couldn’t stay away from each other. After Ralph confessed, and the media gushed about this southern gothic soap opera, to the detriment of Olivia’s character. Did public perception as well as the Hand family’s political connections influence the justice Olivia’s family received?Hosted and produced by Erica KelleyResearched and written by Haley Gray & Erica KelleyOriginal Graphic Art by Coley HornerOriginal Music by Rob Harrison of Gamma RadioEdited by Chaes Gray of Gray MultimediaEpisode Suggested by: Rials McWilliams & Cera McCool Sponsors: Best Fiends StoryWorth.com/southernfried BetterHelp.com/southernSources: https://www.southernfriedtruecrime.com/118-the-murder-of-olivia-browningMerch | Donate | In the Media:https://[email protected] (Twitter) @southernfriedtruecrime (Insta)
