Suspect Convictions Episode 12: A Curious Bed Purchase

GLT is partnering with 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

The bed in which Christina McNeil was murdered was later purchased at a thrift store by the same woman who the girl’s father says killed her. 

That is one of the revelations in this week’s episode of Suspect Convictions. After Barton McNeil was arrested and ultimately convicted of the murder, his brother donated the bed to The Salvation Army. Misook (Nowlin) Wang was doing community service at The Salvation Army at that time, related to a domestic abuse case against her. Wang bought the bed and gave it

Police ‘Not Ready to Call Anyone a Suspect’ in Death of Colo. Teen Who Named Alleged Stalker on Facebook

Colorado authorities have not made an arrest in the death of a 19-year-old woman who obtained a protection order against a man she alleged was stalking her weeks before her death.

At a press conference on Wednesday, Adams County Sheriff Mike McIntosh told reporters that detectives are working around the clock to deliver justice for Natalie Bollinger, who was found dead Saturday off the side of a road north of Denver.

After Nearly 30 Years, Suspect Arrested in Murder of College Freshman Who Vanished on a Jog

Investigators in Washington claim they have cracked a nearly 30-year-old cold case, arresting a 50-year-old man this week in the 1989 slaying of 18-year-old college freshman Amanda “Mandy” Stavik, PEOPLE confirms.

Whatcom County Sheriff Bill Elfo said in a statement that DNA evidence collected from Stavik’s remains allegedly matched that of Timothy Bass, who has been formally charged with first-degree murder.

The count against him reportedly also includes allegations of rape and kidnapping, prosecutors said. (The statute of limitations on those standalone crimes has expired in Stavik’s case.)

Bass has yet to enter a plea and does not have a lawyer who could comment on his behalf. He is being held on $1 million bail, PEOPLE confirms. He faces a possible life sentence in prison.

On the afternoon of Nov. 24, 1989, Stavik — who was home for Thanksgiving from Central Washington University — went for a jog with the family’s

Ex-NFL Player Named Primary Suspect in His Wife of Less Than a Year’s Homicide

Former Dallas Cowboys player, Anthony McClanahan, has been detained as a primary suspect in a possible domestic violence homicide.

PEOPLE confirms the 46-year-old’s wife, Keri “KC” McClanahan, of Arizona, 28, was found dead early Thursday morning at the Park Regency condominiums in Park City, Utah. The Park City Police Department has ruled the apparent cause of death was knife wounds to her throat.

KC’s body was found in a bed when the police arrived at the third-floor room, according to Park City Police Chief Wade Carpenter during a Thursday morning news conference. Officials found her body after someone from the hotel flagged down a patrol sergeant to report a “ruckus” in the room. There appeared to be a trail of blood through part of the parking lot.

Officer Who Stopped NYC Truck Attack Suspect Speaks Out: ‘We Were Just Doing Our Job’

The New York City police officer credited with stopping Tuesday’s deadly truck attack by shooting the suspected assailant in the abdomen says he was simply doing what other officers would have.

“Although I feel that we were just doing our job, like thousands of officers do every day, I understand the importance of yesterday’s events and the role we played,” Officer Ryan Nash said at a Wednesday news conference, “and I am grateful for the recognition we have received.”

Nash, who is assigned to Lower Manhattan’s First Precinct, was reportedly near the scene of the attack on Tuesday afternoon because he and other officers were responding to a call at a local high school about a possibly suicidal student.

They then responded to the nearby truck rampage, which began shortly after 3 p.m. Authorities have described the violence, which killed eight and injured at
