Jeff Davis law enforcement respond to Dr. Oz show on Jennings 8 murders

The Jennings 8 murders are back in the news after the Dr. Oz show featured the case, which has gone unsolved for more than a decade.

Oz described the case as a small-town crime story with law enforcement “caught up in a web of cover-ups and lies.”

The show’s true-crime correspondent, Melissa Moore, said she traveled to Jennings to research the murders that happened over a span of four years, from 2005-08.

Moore alleged that law enforcement in the area colluded to protect major drug dealers there, claiming that they did not process evidence in the case.

“These are powerful people that have a lot to lose,” Moore said.

Moore did not present any evidence to support the connection between drug cartels and law enforcement, and she did not specify which evidence she believes has been excluded. She also said she tried to interview a man named Frankie Richard, who’s a person of interest in

‘It Was Him: The Many Murders of Ed Edwards’: TV Review

Paramount Network’s true crime documentary series is half outlandish serial killer conspiracy theory, half portrait of obsession, neither completely satisfying.

It takes nearly four episodes worth of increasingly outlandish speculation and conspiracy theories before It Was Him: The Many Murders of Ed Edwards co-lead Wayne Wolfe finally begins to break.

Wolfe has just listened to former cold case detective John Cameron spin a yarn in which the Teresa Halbach killing, a crime tied to Steven Avery and the centerpiece of Netflix’s Making a Murderer, was actually committed by the Zodiac Killer.

“What in the fuck?” Wolfe asks, mind reeling. Audiences will feel the same way.

Is Wolfe taken aback by a preponderance of information and the removing of shackles from his previously jaded eyes? Is he incredulous that he’s on a journey of discovery that just may be navigated by a crazy person?

Or is Wolfe at a loss for words because Ed

Who Is Ed Edwards? The Serial Killer Confessed To A Number Of Murders

It’s no secret that true crime shows have taken the country by storm, and the latest installment from Paramount Network promises to be one of the genre’s most ambitious undertakings yet. It Was Him: The Many Murders of Ed Edwards premieres on April 16 on Paramount Network and theorizes that a relatively unknown serial killer is allegedly connected to several famous, still-unsolved cases — including those of the Black Dahlia, JonBenét Ramsey, and the Zodiac Killer. But who is serial killer Ed Edwards?

Edwards was born in Akron, Ohio, on June 14, 1933, per the Wisconsin State Journal. His mother reportedly committed suicide when Edwards was around two years old, after which he was placed in a Catholic orphanage and allegedly subjected to bullying and abuse, according to the Paramount documentary.

His violent upbringing turned into a crime-riddled life. According

Oklahoma Dad Allegedly Murders Son, 13, by Shooting at Truck He Thought Was Stolen

An Oklahoma father is accused of murder in the fatal shooting of his teenage son last weekend, PEOPLE confirms. Authorities and the man’s family said he mistook the boy for someone who was stealing the family’s truck.

On Saturday, Delaware County deputies responded to the shooting about 1:45 a.m. Upon arrival at the scene, they discovered 13-year-old Kyle Rutherford dead from a gunshot wound outside a grey pickup truck with his mother and father attempting to perform CPR on him, according to a probable cause affidavit obtained by PEOPLE.

Kyle’s mom, who called 911, told police her husband, 47-year-old Tony Rutherford, thought he was shooting a thief at the time their son was killed, the affidavit states.

Rutherford had allegedly pursued the truck while firing on it, not knowing his son was driving, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said, according to the Tulsa World.

A subsequent investigation by the OSBI led to Rutherford’s arrest for first-degree murder.

Neighbors told authorities that before the shooting, Rutherford

Woman Murders Husband So He Won’t Find Out They Owe $1.7 Million To IRS

Murders A-Z is a collection of true crime stories that take an in-depth look at both little-known and famous murders throughout history. 

On May 17, 2005, two days before her 15th wedding anniversary, Amy Bosley was being interviewed by Kentucky police about the murder of her husband, Bill Bosley, who was shot to death after a supposed home invasion. Though investigators originally set out on a massive manhunt for the crazed killer, they ended up finding the murder suspect a little closer to the Bosley home.

Amy Bosley (née Pape) was born in 1967 and raised in the small town of Alexandria, Kentucky. She was the only child of working class family, and she didn’t come from a lot of money.

Unsolved – the makers of BBC Three’s true crime hit on what it’s like to investigate murders

Bronagh Munro is the person you call when you want answers. As an investigative journalist for the BBC, she’s interviewed killers, helped uncover paedophiles and tracked down missing persons – all in the name of justice. Her latest project, Unsolved: The Man With No Alibi, is a gripping true crime story serialised in six bitesize episodes. It tells the story of Omar Benguit, a man convicted of the murder of a young Korean woman, Jong-Ok Shin, known as Oki, in Bournemouth in 2005. But for the last 16 years in prison, he’s always maintained his innocence. “I’d rather die in jail and be carried out in a box saying I didn’t do it, than say I did do it and go home today,” Omar told Bronagh in one highly-charged phone call.

However, Omar had previous. By his early twenties he’d racked up 60 convictions – which included stabbing a man in
