As Bob Young’s attorney noted, of all the evidence introduced in Beth’s murder trial, just one piece implicated his client. But it was a big one: a confession. In this episode of “Accused,” The Enquirer details the original investigation outlined in police records and trial transcripts, as well as the single exhibit that has some people in Oxford, Ohio, still convinced decades later that Young got away with murder.

Rank #4: Chapter 7: The evidence

Podcast cover

If Bob Young killed his girlfriend, he couldn’t be tried again, so holding onto the physical evidence in the case would be moot. In America, you can’t be charged twice for the same crime. But what if he’s innocent? In this episode of Accused, The Enquirer outlines its year-long quest to answer that question.

Rank #5: Chapter 5: If not Bob, who? - Part 2

Podcast cover

Elizabeth Andes' friends and family don't point fingers when asked who they think might have killed the bubbly 23-year-old Dec. 28, 1978. But they worry that police zeroed in on Andes' boyfriend so quickly that authorities might have missed other worthwhile leads. Boyd Glascock was a quirky and artistic man who inserted himself into the murder investigation by showing up uninvited to boyfriend Bob Young’s house after Young had been arrested. Glascock professed his love for Young and then presented the football player with what appeared to be a blood-covered pin cushion as a gift – an odd choice for a man whose girlfriend had been stabbed with sewing shears. Cincinnati lawyer Deb Lydon wonders if police should have more thoroughly questioned Glascock in the late ‘70s – but he’s not the only person The Enquirer has investigated.

In the days surrounding Beth’s death, area newspapers boasted front-page stories about body after body being exhumed from John Wayne Gacy’s property. Ted Bundy had been terrorizing the nation for four years. BTK was on the loose in Wichita, Kansas. The late ‘70s were a dark period in American history when it comes to crime, and that has some of Beth’s friends asking a question: Could Beth have been targeted by one of the many serial killers working the nation? The Enquirer explores that question in this episode of Accused – and learns there’s no shortage of avenues to pursue. Do you like Accused? Check out Secrets, Crimes & Audiotape: smarturl.it/sca

Podcast cover

The City tells true stories of how power works in urban America. Season 1 begins in Chicago, 1990.  After years of disinvestment, highways are rebuilt, old buildings demolished, new skyscrapers erected. All that rubble has to go somewhere, and its destination isn’t a landfill—it’s a pair of vacant lots in a black, working-class neighborhood called North Lawndale. The man behind this operation is a white guy sporting a Cosby sweater and underworld connections. What follows is a tour de force through Chicago’s underbelly: Aldermen get indicted. An FBI investigation goes awry. A community’s resilience is tested—all unfolding under the spectre of racism in America.

Rank #20: Chapter 2: The couple

Podcast cover
Read more

As Oxford police began investigating the city’s first murder in a quarter-century, detectives bolstered their case against the victim’s boyfriend. But did cops’ theory on motive line up with what Beth’s friends knew about the couple? Bob Young had no prior criminal record, and no one at trial testified he had even a slight temper, much less a murderous one. Despite this, police records indicate that investigators didn’t give much weight to the men in Beth’s life that her friends say warranted some scrutiny in the wake of her murder. In this episode, The Enquirer delves into Beth’s personality, her relationship with Young and her plans after college in hopes of determining whether the prosecution’s case against Young made any sense.
