911 dispatchers are often the unsung heroes of emergency services. They work behind the scenes, acting as the first responder for numerous traumatic events. Nearly 40 percent of dispatchers experience burnout, which is almost double the burnout rate for “normal” jobs (1). However, most dispatchers believe they are safe both on and off the job. Unfortunately, this is not true, particularly for today’s case. Okay…onto the show.

In most places, there is no statute of limitation on murder, so charges can be brought against someone regardless of how old the crime was. Thankfully, this allows justice to be served, even when a killer might think they have escaped punishment. That’s central to today’s episode.

Lizzie Borden took an ax, gave her mother forty whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one. Lizzie Borden is arguably the most infamous case of parricide, although she was acquitted of the murders of her father and step-mother. But, Lizzie was by no means the last time a daughter killed her father or had her father killed. Today’s perpetrators are far from a modern-day Lizzie Borden, but the acts were no ...

Born into extreme wealth (she was a member of the last class of debutantes who were presented to the Queen), she abandoned her life as an Oxford-trained Ph.D. and heiress to join the cause of Irish Republicanism. While on the surface she appears to be the British version of Patricia Hearst, she is anything but. Dugdale ran head-first towards the action, spearheading the first aerial terr...

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.
