Despite many advances in forensic science, people are still convicted on the testimony of people who call themselves experts. Some of the testimony and evidence is based on what lawyers and other scientists call junk science. For one man, junk science meant 13 years in prison, before the expert witness was finally debunked.

ear. Rage. Two words, loaded with emotion. Two words that can make a person feel helpless and out of control. Two words that can cloud a person’s judgement. Two words that can change the course of their life. Robert Hanssen claimed that fear and rage were the key emotions that led him to betray his country, to become a mole, and to be one of the most damaging spies in the history of the FBI.

Into The Forest And The Way Through (release date: August 28, 2020). It's a sobering look at missing and murdered women of color whose stories often go ignored, their killers never held to account, and it’s a searing call to arms to examine these wounds.

Losing a loved one to murder is perhaps one of the most traumatic things a family can imagine. That trauma is further compounded when the death comes at the hands of someone the victim knew and loved, someone they trusted. Perhaps the most unimaginable of all is a murder committed against a mother, by her son – her own flesh and blood. Today we’ll discuss the tragic death of Diane Michele and how even though her son Christopher Dan...

The murder of an entire family is an incredible tragedy, but when no apparent motive exists, and the case remains unsolved, it is a double tragedy. Today’s episode is about a case that is 55 years old, with no arrests made, and very few clues to go on. These murders are plagued with more questions than answers.

The US has no ban on the execution of people with mental illnesses. Many states have considered legislation to exclude the mentally ill from execution, but none have taken that step yet. The Supreme Court has stated a defendant’s mental illness “must be taken into consideration as an important reason to spare his or her life.” Those with mental illness cannot necessarily understand their defense, even if they are declared competent...

When people think of “dangerous jobs,” the more obvious ones quickly come to mind: firefighters, law enforcement, oil riggers, but real estate agents are rarely at the forefront. However, realtors often go by themselves to meet strangers, usually in empty houses. There are numerous instances of these meetings going terribly wrong, terribly fast. Some of these are planned, targeted attacks, and others happen in an instant. Okay…onto...

A Gun in My Gucci is a true story of two “outsiders” who helped bring down the Chicago Mob — the middle-aged mobster Ken “Tokyo Joe” Eto, and a determined young woman, Elaine Corbitt Smith. In the early 1980s, Joe Eto was the highest-ranking Asian-American mob associate in the country. His nemesis, rookie Elaine Smith was one of a few female Special Agents in the FBI at that time. Only three percent of FBI Agents were women in 1979...

The murder of parents by their children is called parricide. It accounts for approximately 2% of the homicides in the US, annually. Most of these tend to be committed by males, and typically, it’s a single victim and single offender. However, occasionally, both parents, to include a biological parent and stepparent, are murdered. In the case of multiple offenders, it’s usually adolescent females who have enlisted their boyfriend or...

Welcome back to the TCFC podcast. I’m your host, Lanie. For most people, when they bury their loved ones, they expect to grieve and for the deceased to rest in peace. Unfortunately, throughout history, and even today, the deceased and their families fall victim to graverobbers, or bodysnatchers. Most people are not aware this gruesome practice still occurs, but in the mid-2000s, thousands of families discovered their loved ones’ co...

It's like a scene from a 90's movie - a mild-mannered CIA agent is arrested for espionage as he waited for his flight to Switzerland. The agent makes the case that he only did it to support his family but, from his federal prison cell, continues the scheme. He drags friends and relatives into his crimes until he is caught again and the world is left wondering if this is really that last we will hear from him. But this isn’t...

The Hippocratic Oath is a promise made by a doctor. In this oath, the physician swears to do no harm, promising to respect a patient’s autonomy, providing confidentiality and esteem. The trust between a doctor and patient is almost always implicit and immediate because of this oath. Moreover, doctors attend school for years and years, accumulating mountains of debt in the process. Therefore, most people automatically presume they m...

The medical system prides itself on following the Hippocratic oath – never revealing the secrets of patients. Even in some legal cases, medical records cannot be released without subpoenas or warrants. This has made it possible for psychiatric patients to make threats while in therapy, without worrying their therapist will report the threats to the police or the intended victim. Today, we have three cases where victims and their fa...
