What Happened To Grace

AN EYE FOR AN EYE —

A special edition of Yesterday’s News exploring the criminal justice system at its most extreme: Inflicting the Death Penalty…

The Atrocities Of Albert Fish

Episode 191 is without a doubt the vilest case you will ever hear on this program because I don’t think I could find one worse if I tried. There is a lot of evil discussed here, torture and cannibalism and more. Consider this your trigger warning. I’d turn back if I were you. At least, put the kids to bed and plug in your ear buds. Keep this between us. Happy Halloween.

The Rosier Affair

Episode 189 is the first part of a story that is so twisted, snarled, and sensational that we broke it down into two episodes because one show couldn’t hold all the drama. It starts out looking like another love triangle gone awry, but… well, just hang on. This is a bumpy one.

Episode 190 finishes up the melodramatic tale of Catherine Rosier as she goes on trial for her life. Get out the smelling salts and tissues, folks. There’s a lot of swooning and fainting about to take place, not to mention the flying accusations and indelicate revelations.

The Baldwin Trunk Murder

Episode 188 takes us to Prohibition Era Los Angeles, where a galavanting doctor gets a snootful of juice, and then more than what he bargained for.

The Doctor’s Wife And The Dumpy Little Chicken Man

Episode 186 explores another eternal triangle resulting in murder. This time, it’s the youngish wife of an elderly doctor who plots with a neighboring poultry salesman to put a deadly end to her marriage. Obviously, it doesn’t end well for them or they wouldn’t be on this show.
