The Murders Of William Lindstrom, Cammie Soutar, And Maybe One Other Guy

Episode 201 tells the story of a woman’s allegedly murderous career in Chicago and Indiana. Three times, a murder or otherwise suspicious death took place near Mrs. Cassler, and she even spent some time condemned to the gallows, but fate twisted in her favor every time. She did spend more than two years in jail, but overall, it seems she got pretty lucky indeed.
