New York State has a vast history in Capital Punishment. As it turns out all forms used for execution are extremely brutal. This week we talk about several types of execution forms used in New York through out the years. The crime that led to the last execution in New York and you’ll hear a rather graphic description of what happens during electrocution in the electric chair.
These murders hit far to close to home. These young lives were so brutally cut short for nothing more than a minor debt. The crime was senseless and stupid. Family and friends are left with sadness and anger . A community left wondering why it had to go this way.
4 -year-old Derrick Robie was allowed to walk to his summer rec program by himself on Aug 2 1993, it was the last time he would walk anywhere ever again. His brutal murder made all the worse when his killer was unmasked.
This is the frustrating story of Menachem Stark a husband, father and real estate developer who was in a tight spot and quickly blamed for his own death. A life cut too short by anger and senseless acts. Financial woes far to often lead people to commit horrific acts of violence.
This is the story of nine women who went missing and were murdered in Poughkeepsie New York and how their killer was allowed to harm so many for so long.
My husband Duane , (everyone calls him Bubba) has joined the podcast. He is a retired LEO who loves true crime as much as I do. Today we discuss Kendall Francios the Poughkeepsie Killer. This is part 1 of 2 AND redo of Episode 1. Enjoy and Thanks for listening. Please listen to the end for some episode corrections and information about a few missing people who deserve justice!
Unfortunately there is no update, District Attorney Sandra Doorley does not believe the case can be solved. Hundreds of people are left without answers. Ten people lost their lives and thirty four were injured, none of them will get justice.
The volume in the first five minutes is kind of wonky. Sorry about that, it gets better!
