This is the first True Crime Brewery commissioned podcast!  

Thank you to Todd Feitl---a listener so fascinated by true crime (and beer!) that he paid us to do a TCB episode on the Son of Sam murders.

The Son of Sam shootings back in the 1970s terrorized citizens of New York and its Burroughs.  After 8 attacks, a 24 year old loner named David Berkowitz was arrested. Berkowitz confessed, but were these cases really solved?  Since his incarceration, Berkowitz has changed his story with no interest in being set free.  And some very intelligent, knowledgeable people have questioned the theory of Berkowitz as a lone gunman.  For one thing, eyewitness descriptions at the shootings did not always match Berkowitz.  And then there are the conspiracy theories which put a nationwide satanic cult at the core of these and other crimes.  Join us at the quiet end as we relive the Son of Sam murders and examine multiple theories.  This round is on Todd!

Dick reviews 2 beers in this episode:

To Bart Corbin, til death do us part meant murder. In 2004, Jenn Corbin's 7 year-old son found her murdered in her bed. He knew his father was responsible.  In fact, he told anyone who would listen that his Daddy killed his Mommy.  After hearing of Jenn's death, the family of Dolly Hearn came forward to say that their daughter had died 14 years earlier under eerily similar circumstances.  Dolly's death had been ruled a suicide, but her family was confident that she had been killed by her ex-boyfriend, Bart Corbin.
Join us at the quiet end for a look at this haunting case of a man who would rather kill than be left by the women in his life.

29 year old Reeva Steenkamp was shot dead by her boyfriend Oscar Pistorius on Valentine's Day 2013. He would claim that he thought there was an intruder locked in his bathroom and he shot through the door 4 times out of fear. Prosecutors in South Africa didn't find his story believable. There was evidence that pointed to domestic violence ending in murder. The thing is, Reeva was an activist against domestic violence. Could she have been caught up in an abusive relationship? The fame of Oscar Pistorius "The Blade Runner" made this a highly publicized crime. But, more important than fame is the precious life lost in this senseless, incredibly violent murder. Reeva was a young woman who possessed more than physical beauty and who left behind two devastated parents and a world of possibilities. Join us at the quiet end as we talk about Reeva's life, the trial of her killer, and the all too common threads of domestic and gun violence.

Dick gives us his review of Castle 1895 Draught from South African Breweries

Andrea Yates confessed to drowning her five children in their bathtub at home on June 20, 2001. She had been suffering for some time with postpartum depression and postpartum psychosis.   In her 2002 trial, the district attorney in asked for the death penalty. She was ultimately found competent to stand trial and convicted of capital murder. After the guilty verdict, but before sentencing, the state abandoned its request for the death penalty, and she was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 40 years. Later, the verdict was overturned on appeal and the Texas jury in her retrial found that Yates was not guilty by reason of insanity.

Join us at the quiet end for a frank and in-depth exploration of Andrea's case, the controversy surrounding her husband's supportiveness, and the science of postpartum psychosis.  An Austin beer is reviewed and recommended.
