Richard Glossip
#145 - In 1997, the owner of an Oklahoma City motel was beaten to death with a baseball bat. Shortly into the investigation, the police arrested a teenager, Justin Sneed, for the murder. He quickly confessed to killing the motel owner but told the police someone else hired him to do it. Justin Sneed said that his older friend and manager of the motel, Richard Glossip, was the mastermind behind the murder. Both men were convicted of the murder, and Richard Glossip was sentenced to the death penalty. Can a man be executed solely on the confession of a convicted killer and without any forensic evidence?

#143 - On the morning of December 19, 1991, the body of thirty-six-year-old Kim Ancona was found in the men's restroom of the Phoenix, Arizona, bar where she worked. She had been fatally stabbed and sexually assaulted. Her killer left behind little physical or forensic evidence. Blood at the crime scene matched Kim's blood type, and the police didn't perform semen or DNA tests. Investigators relied on bite marks found on Kim's breast and neckShortly after the murder, the Phoenix police identified their first suspect, Ray Krone. Krone was Kim's friend and became a regular customer at the bar. Phoenix police asked Krone to make a Styrofoam impression of his teeth for comparison. And according to the police, his teeth matched the bite mark on Kim's body. But is a bite mark enough evidence to convict someone of first-degree murder?Support My WorkIf you love the show, the easiest way to show your support is by leaving us a positive rating with a review.

#142 - In November 1969, Mary Scott arrived home to her San Diego apartment after her shift as a cocktail waitress. The next day, her best friend checked on her after she learned that Mary didn't show up to work. When her friend entered the apartment, she found that her friend had assaulted and strangled to death. With little evidence to go on, the case remained unsolved for the next five decades. It wasn't until cold case investigators turned to forensic genetic genealogy that they eventually identified a possible suspect in Mary's murder.Support My WorkIf you love the show, the easiest way to show your support is by leaving us a positive rating with a review.
