The Wolf

On a mild spring night in May of 1983, a woman disrupted the quiet at Mackenzie-Willamette Medical Center in Springfield, Oregon. Her terrified screams that her children had been shot, echoed through the halls. Her 3 young kids; Christie Ann 8, Cheryl Lynn 7, and Stephen Daniel 3, lay bleeding within her car. The medical staff jumped in to begin life-saving measures and before long, the strange story of Diane Downs unfolded and a nation would choose sides.Join Emily and Alisha as they revisit this notorious case, and make sure to check out this episode’s blog for additional information.
