27 year-old Laura Ackerson was last seen on July 13, 2011, after stopping by the home of her ex-partner Grant Hayes and his wife Amanda Hayes.  She was reported missing two days later when she failed to show up for work. On July 20, Ackerson’s Ford Focus was found abandoned near the 5400 block of Summer Manor Lane in Raleigh. Her dismembered remains were found in three separate locations near Richmond, Texas, about 30 miles southwest of Houston. The remains were found near Amanda Hayes’ sister’s home. 

After a long and bitter custody battle over her two young children, Grant and Amanda Hayes plotted and carried out the cold-blooded murder of Laura.  It is believed that the couple wanted Laura out of the way so they could raise the two boys on their own.  Perhaps even more shocking than the murder itself was the horrific mutilation and disposal of Laura's remains.  In court, Grant and Amanda would each plead their innocence, placing the blame on one another.

Join us for a discussion of a young woman, Laura Ackerson, who chose the wrong man and paid the ultimate price.

The beer review is The Event Horizon from Old Hickory Brewing Company.

On the evening of October 25th, 1994, a 23 year old woman frantically knocked on the door of the McCloud family in the small town of Union, South Carolina.  Hysterically, she told a tale of a lone gunman who stole her car and sped off with her two children in the back seat.  The people of Union supported the young mother as the media descended on the town.  Police searched the woods and parks for Michael and Alex as helicopters flew over John D. Long Lake looking for the boys.  No one suspected that the pretty young mother who tearfully pleaded for their return could have been responsible.
Join us for a discussion of the life of Susan Smith, her hardships, lies, and deceptions, followed by an in depth look at her trial and the tragic murders of her two innocent children.
Dick's beer review is Key Lime Pie Gose---Yum!
