Ep66 - The Murder of Gloria Gaxiola

Screen Shot 2018-05-03 at 10.24.39 AM.png

This episode was recommended to us at the Gen Why meet up in LA by Laura, one of our awesome listeners. She recommended this case, and actually has a personal connection to it, because she knew the victim from school. So we just wanted to say a quick thank you to Laura for recommending the case to us!

This week we are discussing a case from southern California. Early in the morning on October 12th, 2002 a body of Gloria Gaxiola was found on the side of the road. She was initially believed to be the victim of a hit and run, but police quickly determined that what actually happened was much more horrific.

The body of the young woman was dragged behind a car for over 4 miles before being left on the side of the road. The murder seemed to be deeply personal, but the case was cold for years before investigators would catch a break.

This week we will discuss the crime, the victim, and possible motives for why this atrocious crime happened.

He got away with the murder of two young girls for years, and when he was caught, his connection to his victims was a shocking betrayal to their families.

Ep64 - Todd Willingham

misconduct_ep064_promo1-3.jpeg

This week we are discussing the case of Cameron Todd Willingham. On December 23rd, 1991 neighbors reported seeing smoke coming from the Willingham household in Corsicana, Texas. Horrified, they watched 23 year old Todd Willingham emerge from the smoke filled entryway, but his three children, all under two years old, were nowhere to be found.

The fire department arrived and entered the house. They found the oldest child, unconscious in one of the rooms, but Todd’s twins were still missing. When the fire was finally extinguished, investigators recovered the bodies of the twins in their bedroom. Their older sister, who had been rescued from the fire, was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Shortly after the fire was put out, Todd was arrested and charged with arson and the murder of his three young daughters. He was tried, convicted, and sentenced to death. Despite his conviction, Todd maintained he was not responsible for the fire that killed his children. He appealed until the end, and despite a last minute report casting doubt on the cause of the fire, Todd was put to death on February 17th, 2004.

After his death many have raised the question: did Texas execute an innocent man?
