Sunday Magazine #9

A Collection of True Crime Short Stories–

Two Crazed Gunmen

Episode 154 brings us two tales of two fellows who find their lives out of control, and try to get it back, the wrong way.
“A Lifetime Of Hate: Thomas Fay Redfern’s Revenge.” After nearly 20 years of stewing about how one man did him wrong, at least in his own mind, a Louisville, Kentucky, native comes home to get his revenge. The second act, “George Yerigan Shoots Up the Place,” tells the story of a man whose troubles actually began on the battlefields of France. He brings back many war souvenirs, and a good case of shell shock.

Peggy Nash Tells How She Killed Her Husband

Episode 153 involves a domestic dispute, shots fired. What drew me to this story, actually, was the patience of the woman charged. Wait til you hear all of the altercations she had with this man before she finally put an end to it. I’m not justifying homicide, but… well, I’ll tell the story, you supply your own horror, outrage, and indignation. They’ll talk about a previous incident in the family history, and as a bonus, I’ve included a short story at the end that covers some of that, so stay through past the credits.
