Spelade

  • Today we begin our coverage of a horrific offender whom we are loathe to name, and a Netflix documentary series about his heinous crimes — who’s title we hate to repeat. Most people know his name but don’t know the victims. We will refer to him as RR throughout our series, We take apart the framework of the docuseries, which is from the POV of Detectives Frank Salerno and Gill Carrillo who led the task force to find this killer. Right off the bat, Laura and Jim have some differing and controversial opinions on the docuseries, the men charged with leading the investigation and the investigation itself. You won’t want to miss this.

Laura and Jim explore how this offender was allowed to continue to target young girls even after he was caught. Lisa wonders if this offender is different from others we have covered in that he took Jan away from their community to another country rather than hiding in plan sight.

    *** KILLER CASTING PODCAST ***

    Don’t forget to subscribe to KILLER CASTING podcast with Lisa Z to breakdown your favorite shows and movies…or to find your next big binge! Next up is an interview with Joe Mantegna (Agent Dave Rossi from CBS’ Criminal Minds). Joe and Lisa talk about the resurgence of interest in chess since the popularity of Netflix’ Queen’s Gambit series and how that has in turn inspired people to watch his wonderful 1993 movie “Searching for Bobby Fischer”. 

  • Lisa, Jim and Laura, sit down with a very special guest this week. In 2013, Lisa cast actress Jan Broberg on an episode of Criminal Minds, as a mother in despair that her son had been kidnapped. What Lisa didn’t know was that in real life, Jan herself had been kidnapped, not once, but TWICE by a close family friend. Years later, Jan would tell her incredible story in the Netflix documentary “Abducted in Plain Sight”. Jim and Laura break down this offender’s behavior and his grooming of not only Jan, but of her family and an entire community. Laura teaches Jan a very important term she had never heard of before regarding her own case...“coercive control”. You won’t want to miss this.

  • During the late 1970s and early 1980s, there were a high number of sexual assaults in the South Hill section of Spokane, Washington. The authorities created a task force to catch this predator that the media dubbed "The South Hill Rapist." It would take some time but, eventually, authorities closed in on a man named Kevin Coe, whose father was the managing editor of The Spokane Chronicle. When the true extent of Kevin's crimes came out they were shocking. The authorities believe that he is responsible for more than 50 sexual assaults during a relatively short time period.

    Join Mike and Gibby for the second and last part of the Kevin Coe story. We'll delve into his trials and the bizarre behavior exhibited by his mother Ruth. We also detail out some of the other crimes that Kevin Coe is thought to have committed and the fight by the State of Washington to keep him locked up.

  • The RCP team weigh in and offer their insight and analysis about the death of Brian Wells, which is the focus of the Netflix show ‘Evil Genius: The True Story Of America’s Most Diabolical Bank Heist’ co-directed by Trey Borzillieri and Barbara Schroeder. 

    Brian Wells, a local pizza delivery man, held up a PNC Bank with a bomb collar around his neck and a cane gun. He had two pages of elaborate handwritten instructions - a detailed scavenger hunt - leading him from place to place, both to steal $250, 000 and pick up new instructions, with the promise of freedom if he completes the tasks in time. 

    Having left the bank he was stopped by police in a parking lot. Having cuffed him and sat him on the ground some 25 minutes later, the bomb starts to beep. The beeping escalated until the moment it exploded, killing Brian Wells. The bomb squad arrived too late.

    Was he part of this elaborate plan to rob the bank or a victim exploited and manipulated by others? The #RCP team discuss the facts, the evidence and the footage in the documentary. 

    Health warning: please be advised that this podcast contains graphic content about the case and autopsy.
