  • Episode 26: The murder of Mary Phagan

    2 SEP 2019 · On Sunday, April 27, 1913 just a little after 3 a.m., an African American night watchman named Newt Lee was making his rounds. After feeling a call to nature, he went into the basement to use the negro restroom. Keep in mind that during this time, Negroes and whites had separate restrooms and drinking fountains. It was a time when segregation and racism were considered normal. Lee would find the deceased body of a 13-year-old teenager named Mary Phagan. Someone had assaulted, robbed and killed the young girl. This case would become one of the most sensational cases in the history of Atlanta. It involved anti-semitism, violence, vigilante justice, and a horrific ending for the alleged killer. Today the case is still discussed and it's believed that an innocent man paid the ultimate price for a crime he likely didn't commit.

  • Episode 24: The murder of Amber Hagerman and her legacy

    27 JUN 2019 · Most people know all about the Amber Alert. Whenever a child is abducted, there is an alert system that appears on our phones and outdoor road signs. It is responsible for saving hundreds of children. The system was legally enacted by President George W. Bush when he signed the 2003 Protect Act. The alert is named after a murdered 9-year-old girl named Amber Hagerman. In 1996, Amber Hagerman rode her bike in an abandoned parking lot. A witness saw a man in a black truck abduct her. Four days later, Amber's nude body was found in a creek. Her killer had sexually assaulted and tortured her for two days before cutting her throat and dumping her body in a creek. Today, her murder remains unsolved, but Arlington, Texas police continue trying to find her killer. Since their is no biological evidence, the police are hoping someone will come forward with information that could break this case.

  • Episode 23: Jane: A victim of child trafficking

    10 JUN 2019 · Child sex trafficking is a billion dollar business. The only other illegal activity that earns more is illegal drug sales. Every year children are taken and forced into having sex with adults for money. Even surprising is that some of the men who have been caught engaging in sex with these minors are policemen, judges, doctors, and even fireman. Social class and financial status are irrelevant when it comes to child trafficking. For all you know, a family member or friend could be involved. It's a crime that usually stays in the darkness until it's forced into the light. In this week's episode, I spoke to "Jane," a woman who was trafficked by her own mother from the age of 3 until she was 17. Her mother used to bring men to their home and allow them to rape her daughter for money, food, jewelry, or money to pay bills. Oddly enough, Jane always loved her mother and uses her faith in God to cope with her painful childhood memories.
