Ep. 72- Nathaniel White

Nathaniel White wasn't quite what he seemed. He came off as shy and polite, which enabled him to get in close to a family who was caught completely unaware of his dark side. Some early signs of weird behavior should have been a red flag but his ability to lie and manipulate let him continue down a road that would eventually threaten to tear that family apart.

Ep. 43- Marcelo Lucero

On November 8, 2008, while 37 year old Marcelo Lucero & his friend were casually walking home, they were approached by 7 teenage boys who started tormenting them & beating them up. The attack ended when 17 year old, Jeff Conroy stabbed Marcelo and then took off with his friends. Even though the hospital was only 4 miles away, it took EMTs 40 minutes to get Marcelo there and shortly after he arrived, he passed away. So what made these 7 teens target these two men? Why did it take the EMTs so long to get to the hospital? We discuss that and so much more so be prepared to get mad with us. Also! We give Scott a questionaire at the end so you get to learn a little bit more about the new member of the team.
