  • Glen Samuel McCurley’s heinous and depraved act against Carla Walker was confident and brazen; it was as if the man had done it before. There are many murders in the city of Fort Worth in which McCurley’s involvement can be speculated, particularly the several victims of what became known as “The February Slayings.” Victims of those murders include Becky Martin, June Ward, and Christy Tower. This episode explores the possibility that Glen McCurley is responsible for these young women’s violent and tragic deaths, and others.

  • After Glen Samuel McCurley was arrested for the kidnapping, sexual assault, and murder of Carla Walker, Tarrant County Assistant Criminal District Attorneys Kim D’Avignon and Emily Dixon, along with DA Investigator Chris Lachance, began their work to obtain a conviction. First, the case had to go before a Grand Jury, followed by a series of pretrial hearings in which the man’s defense attempted to get evidence thrown out. But the efforts of the court appointed defense team, for the most part, failed. Last episode, we heard Detectives and DNA experts recall their roles in the arrest of Glen McCurley. This episode, ADA Emily Dixon discuss her and ADA D’Avignon’s role in obtaining a conviction. Also this episode – Detectives Wagner and Bennett and Nicole, or juror number 6.

  • A big Halloween party at an apartment complex in Redmond, Washington. Themed rooms and costumed partygoers. But by the end of the party, one of the hosts is dead. The police look to the partiers as the prime suspects: was it the guy in the devil mask, the bank robber, the construction worker? As investigators comb through forensic evidence, witness testimony, DNA, and even consult with a psychic, they zero in on one suspect in particular. But for what reason? Host and reporter Matthew Shaer (Over My Dead Body) returns to the scene of the crime, speaks with everyone about a night that still haunts them years later. It’s a series about race and policing, mislaid justice, cutting-edge science, and the kinds of weighty choices that cops and prosecutors make every day -- choices that, once made, are difficult to reverse.

  • It wasn’t for a lack of effort and determination that past Fort Worth Police Detectives couldn’t solve the February 17th, 1974 murder of Carla Walker. It was because her killer was a complete stranger and the technology needed to find the perpetrator didn’t exist. Forty-five years after the terrible crime, Detectives Leah Wagner and Jeff Bennett began working the case from scratch, and their diligence paid off after their paths crossed both Mallory Pagenkopf of the Serological Research Institute and David Mittelman of Othram, Incorporated. In September of 2020, Carla’s killer was arrested.

  • The final episode of our Death in Houston High Society series. Dean Goss’s final decent was in November of 1992. Both rumors of that the man had committed suicide and been slain by the same person who’d killed his first and second wives swirled around Houston, but the truth was neither. Friends of Dean eulogized him at one of the man’s favorite watering holes. But after the death, the slayings of Elaine Richman Goss, Paula Brawley Goss, and James Jackson Brown seemed to become erased from Houston’s collective memory. The murders remain unsolved to this day, and it seems incredible that “The Riddle of Dean Goss” didn’t land itself along the city’s other infamous true crime cases – such as the Ice Box Murders and the Candyman.

  • If you’d have asked any of Dean Goss’s friends how he was doing after the death of his second wife Paula, they’d tell you he was a wreck – miserable. None of them seemed to believe the man was responsible for Paula’s murder or, for that matter, the slaying of his first wife, Elaine. The cops, too, appeared to think Dean was in the clear. Houston’s press, however, had no problem conducting their own trial of the man through newspaper articles and television news segments. “The Blue Beard of Houston” was just too sensational a headline to let go. When Dean Goss took his slain second wife’s brother to court over a dispute about her estate, however, revelations about the man – and the man’s second-born son – came to light. Details of the investigation of Paula’s murder, among other things, became publicly known.

  • A couple years after the death of his first wife Elaine, Dean Goss met and married Paula Brawley. Only months after putting up a substantial amount of money to get Dean’s latest idea off the ground, that venture went belly up following a series of bizarre, suspicious, and flagrantly shady events. Paula had lost her investment and her relationship with Dean was soured. Following a few other bizarre circumstances, in July of 1985, Paula Goss was brutally murdered. The act appeared to be one of rage, but Houston Homicide Detectives failed to identify a clear cut motive and Paula’s murder remains unsolved.

  • In 1982, when Dean Goss needed cash to pay for his murdered wife Elaine’s funeral, he sought out Houston Carpet & Flooring magnate Frank DiMaria. Back in 1968, when Imperial Carpet executive Alan Berg disappeared and was later found murdered, Frank DiMaria stood accused of having hired a notorious Texas hitman – Charles Voyde Harrelson – to do the job. DiMaria and the Bergs had been feuding for some time, and though Harrelson’s girlfriend came clean about her role in Alan’s death, his murder remains officially unsolved to this day.

  • In 1968, Elaine and Dean Goss opened up the Holiday Dinner Theater in Houston, Texas. The place was a huge hit and so was Dean Goss, who quickly became known as “The Jackie Gleason of Houston.” Dean was so big, in fact, that he and Elaine’s establishment was renamed The Dean Goss Dinner Theater. For a decade, Elaine and Dean lived the high life, hobnobbing with socialites, celebrities, and politicians. But after the theater went out of business, things spiraled downward. Then in 1982 came the unthinkable when Elaine Goss was murdered in the couple’s home in the Meyerland neighborhood of Houston. But it would be far from the last slaying of someone close to Dean Goss, and many, perhaps unfairly, began calling him by a different nickname, “The Bluebeard of Houston.”

  • A year after millionaire businessman Jacque Mossler found out his wife Candy was having an incestuous love affair with her nephew, he was living in Florida after leaving the couples mansion in Houston, Texas. When Candy brought the estranged couple’s kids for a visit, Jacque was brutally murdered in an act of overkill that had to be personal. Candy’s nephew and lover, Melvin Lane Powers, just happened to fly into Miami hours before Jacque was killed, and Candy had what looked like a staged alibi. But after their arrests, they spared no expense and got the best defense attorney in the country: Percy Foreman. The murder of Jacque Mossler remains officially unsolved to this day.

  • When Candy Weatherby Johnson met multimillionaire Jacque Mossler while soliciting donations for the New Orleans Grand Opera Company, the two hit it off and began a whirlwind romance. They settled down in a large mansion in Houston, Texas and for years, had a happy marriage. But when Candy’s nephew Melvin Lane Powers came to town, everything came crashing down. This is preface one of two of the story about The Blue Beard of Houston.

  • On Friday, July 9th, 2021, a second pretrial hearing was held in the State of Texas v Glen Samuel McCurley to decide what evidence would be allowed at the accused’s trial, specifically the DNA evidence. I attended and this episode is a summary of the motions to suppress filed by McCurley’s defense team, the State’s response, Judge Elizabeth Beach’s decisions, and a few other things outside the hearing.

    Also, at the top of the episode are two overdue updates – one for the 1973 Harlingen, Texas murder of Candy Mora, and the other concerning Briuna Harps, innocent victim of a drive by shooting in south Fort Worth in 2019.

  • The investigation into the murder of 28-year-old Jennifer Harris of Bonham, Texas was virtually cold from the get-go. Besides the jurisdictional issues and lack of leads in the case, some evidence was damaged and most lost. The turnaround rate at the Fannin County Sheriff’s Office certainly didn’t help matters either. The rumor mill, too, hindered the investigation. But there were always two suspects, and though some believe one was the most likely, the other, it could be argued, seems just as likely. The multiple agencies who have investigated Jennifer’s murder, however, have yet to turn over enough evidence to charge either man. Part 2 of 2.

    If you have any information about the murder of Jennifer Lenette Harris in Bonham, Texas, please call the Fannin County Sheriff’s Office at (903)583–2143.

  • On Mother’s Day 2002, 28-year-old Jennifer Harris disappeared from Bonham, Texas after spending the evening with a close friend. Though she didn’t say with who or where, Jennifer told her friend as she was leaving just before 8 PM that she had to meet up with someone. Her Jeep was found the following day. Six days after that, Jennifer Harris’s body was found floating in the Red River, on the Texas / Oklahoma border. After issues with jurisdiction and virtually no evidence, the case was almost immediately cold. Autopsy results had the town of Bonham and Fannin County talking, and a love triangle only further complicated the case. Part 1 of 2.

    If you have any information on the murder of Jennifer Lenette Harris in Bonham, Texas, please call the Fannin County Sheriff’s Office at (903)583–2143.

  • On January 24th, 1969, one of Gregg County, Texas’s most cold-blooded and savage murders occurred: that of 17-year-old Longview High School senior Leslye Diane Koon. The slaying prompted one of the city’s most extensive and intensive investigations in its history. What you might call a taskforce was created that included the Gregg County Sheriff’s Office, the District Attorney’s Office, and Longview Police Detectives, who were on loan out of their jurisdiction. Upon the discovery of a life insurance policy in Leslye’s name, the District Attorney identified three suspects who were charged, indicted, and tried for the murder. But the case remains unsolved to this day – and hasn’t been mentioned since.

    If you have any information about the 1969 murder of Leslye Diane Koon, please contact Gregg County Crime Stoppers at 903-236-STOP.
