Suspect Convictions Episode 4: True-Crime Experts Give Case Fresh Look

GLT is partnering with the true crime podcast Suspect Convictions to explore the 1998 murder of 3-year-old Bloomington girl Christina McNeil.

Her father was convicted of the crime but has long maintained his innocence, claiming an ex-girlfriend was the real killer—the same woman later convicted in a separate murder. New episodes air Fridays on GLT’s Sound Ideas. You can also subscribe to the podcast.

On this week’s episode of Suspect Convictions, our reporters expand their storytelling to include new perspective from two expert true-crime investigators who have their own questions about the case.

Suspect Convictions reporters Scott Reeder and Willis Kern pause their own reporting to discuss the first three episodes with Aphrodite Jones and Bob Ruff. Those first three episodes covered the discovery of Christina McNeil’s body in 1998, the prosecution’s case against her father Barton and an explanation from Barton’s attorneys at the Illinois Innocence Project about why they

‘Law & Order True Crime’ Season 1, Episode 8: The Sins of the Fathers

“Did you ask god for forgiveness,” Marta asks, “for making José the man that he was?”

Kitty Menendez’s sister has secrets as well. In a conversation with Leslie, she says that their father was a violent man. “Our house was chaos,” she says; amid the chaos, someone molested Kitty when she was a young child. “I don’t think I ever saw her truly happy again,” she adds, and so the chain of abuse receives another link. If we could, no doubt we would discover that the chain extends back further still. It’s the nature of violence to multiply; in Lyle and Erik, that violence simply found its critical mass, and its most perfect expression.

And thus is the morality play complicated, as happens with all true-to-life dramas under close inspection. Lyle and Erik inherited their violence, it’s true. But so did José and Kitty. For

‘Law & Order True Crime’ Season 1, Episode 6: The Sons Speak

On the other side, however, there are two lifetimes’ worth of abuse — the alleged sexual molestation and violence at the hands of the father, and the blame, complicity and more sexual abuse at the hands of the mother. Most of the episode was dedicated to Lyle’s and Erik’s testimony on the stand about the abuse, and it was riveting. What’s more their original testimony (there’s a decent edit, with some valuable commentary here, and another here) was replicated here almost word-for-word in places, edited mostly for time — but decidedly not for effect. That’s a credit to the production and to the reality: Both are profoundly moving.

Little need to recap the abuse accusations in great detail here, but suffice to say, they were horrible and extensive. And there were surprises, particularly from Lyle, whose hard exterior irreparably
