AN EYE FOR AN EYE -- A special edition of Yesterday’s News exploring the criminal justice system at its most extreme: Inflicting the Death Penalty...

The Greenlease Kidnapping Tragedy

Episode 362 takes on one of the most evil crimes imaginable as told from the point of view of the perpetrator. By the time police caught up with Carl Austin Hall, he had made so many mistakes in the kidnapping and murder of a six-year-old boy that he knew the game was up, so he told the story in a coldly matter-of-fact 36-page confession, here adapted for the first two acts. The third act, we’ll call “the comeuppance”.

Culled from the historic pages of the Kansas City Times, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and other newspapers of the era.

The Halfwit Gang Of Golden Gate Avenue

Although there’s nothing funny about real-life murder, if Episode 361 were fictional, you could shelve it right next to Elmore Leonard or Carl Hiaisson and the wacky characters they create who walk in the realm of dark comedy. The downfall of this gang that couldn’t shoot straight begins when one of its members decides to surrender and deliver state’s evidence when it begins to look like his days are numbered. And, it turns out, he was right.

Culled from the historic pages of the San Francisco Examiner, the Oakland Tribune, and other newspapers of the era.

UNSOLVED: A special edition of Yesterday’s News exploring one of history’s most baffling murder mysteries

The Father Stood Trial

Episode 360 details one of the most chaotic cases I’ve yet to come across. The investigation left a lot of unanswered questions and the prosecution seems motivated by political pressure and retaliation rather than evidence. Was the youngster murdered by his father or one of his playmates? Let me know what you think.

Culled from the historic pages of the Grand Rapids Herald and other newspapers of the era, with special thanks to the librarian at the Grand Rapids library who gave me access to her big drawer of murder. If you’ve got a great historic murder in your hometown that I’ve yet to cover, let me know and I’ll get it on my list, and maybe even come to your town to investigate.
