Surrounded by greatness — what a line up of True Crime talent!

I love Saturdays because I get to "play radio" with Magic Matt Alan and the gang at Outlaw Radio USA..I do True Crime Uncensored live from Matt's Lighten Up Lounge 2pm PT/4pm CT/5pm ET/10pm UK time, and then stick around for Matt's show.  My co-hosts are Howard Lapides (Celebrity Rehab/Dr. Drew's Life Changers) and "fact checker" Mark Boyer.  This Saturday my guest is Amanda Lamb, famed broadcast journalist and author….and the hits just keep on coming! Look at the line up :

January 21st — Cilia McCain

MccainMbaker

McCain, a writer who grew up on army bases, takes aim at the military and the ways soldiers bring the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq home with them. Her best-seller, MURDER IN BAKER COMPANY, recounts the murder of 25-year-old Army Specialist Richard T. Davis by four fellow members of the army's Third Infantry.

This is the same case that inspired the movie, "In the Valley of Elah."

 

January 28th –Diana Britt Franklin

**** TWO INCREDIBLE TRUE-CRIME TALES BY AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR, DIANA BRITT FRANKLIN ****



 

"Diana Britt Franklin has done a remarkable job of researching the life, death, and crimes of one of America's most dangerous femme fatales, Anna Marie Hahn, whose deceptively delicate blonde beauty, home cooking and 'loving care' led at least a half dozen Ohioans to their graves.  Franklin is at her best when she describes justice in the 1930's, allowing readers to virtually transcend the passage of time.  As she describes Anna's sensational death penalty trial, it's easy to feel that seventy years have slipped away and you are there.  True crime readers will want to read The Good-Bye Door." 
Ann Rule – author of Heart Full of Lies, Worth More Dead and Green River, Running Red.

"Riveting – in the Truman Capote style!" 
Philip Lorito – Amazon.com

"You may read a thousand true crime thrillers (but) you'll never forget this one! ***** Five stars!" 
Irena Chalmers – Amazon.com

"Gold Medal Killer plunges readers into the heart of a shocking 1929 scandal involving a respected Ohio State University professor and Olympic champion whose lurid affair with a coed leads to her brutal murder and his execution in the electric chair.  As she did 

so effectively in her award-winning book, The Good-bye Door, author Diana Britt Franklin has again struck gold with a meticulously researched, riveting true account of a crime that rocked the nation." 
Richard W. Carson – author of Murder In The Thumb

"How could a university professor go from the Olympic podium to the electric chair?  That journey, as recounted in Gold Medal Killer, is so remarkable, so unexpected, that decades later the story still has the power to shock the reader.  Mesmerizing!" 
Laura James – trial attorney and crime historian

"Was Ohio State’ s Dr. Snook guilty of the bloody murder of Theora Hix?  Of this I have no doubt.  However, it is the circumstances of her death and the conflicting accounts of the actions and intentions of this puzzling man that lie at the center of the most important question raised by this case and by this fascinating book.  Should Dr. Snook have died in Ohio’s electric chair?  You be the judge for a change." 
Judge Teresa L. Liston – Franklin County Municipal Court, ret.

FEBRUARY 4TH — Katherine RamslandKr_book

 Katherine Ramsland began her career as a writer with Prism of the Night: A Biography of Anne Rice. She had a bestseller with The Vampire Companion. Since then, she has published 40 books and over 1,000 articles, reviews and short stories. From ghosts to vampires to serial killers, she has taken on a variety of dark subjects. She holds graduate degrees in forensic psychology, clinical psychology, criminal justice, and philosophy. Currently, she teaches forensic psychology and criminal justice at DeSales University. Her books include The Forensic Psychology of Criminal Minds, The Human Predator: A Historical Chronicle of Serial Murder and Forensic Investigation, Inside the Minds of Serial Killers, Inside the Minds of Sexual Predators, and Inside the Minds of Mass Murderers. Her background in forensic studies positioned her to assist former FBI profiler John Douglas on his book, The Cases that Haunt Us, and to co-write a book with former FBI profiler, Gregg McCrary, The Unknown Darkness, as well as The Real Life of a Forensic Scientist with Henry C. Lee and A Voice for the Dead with James Starrs. She speaks internationally about forensic psychology, forensic science, and serial murder, and has appeared on numerous documentaries, as well as such programs as The Today Show, 20/20, 48 Hours, NPR, Coast to Coast, Montel Williams, Larry King Live and E! True Hollywood. Her biggest thrill, of course, is being a guest on True Crime Uncensored.

 February 11th  - Stevie Cameron, famed Canadian investigative journalist!

On the Farm: Robert William Pickton and the Tragic Story of Vancouver’s Missing Women

on_the_farm

 

Covering the case of one of North America’s most prolific serial killer gave Stevie Cameron access not only to the story as it unfolded over many years in two British Columbia courthouses, but also to information unknown to the police – and not in the transcripts of their interviews with Pickton – such as from Pickton’s long-time best friend, Lisa Yelds, and from several women who survived terrifying encounters with him. You will now learn what was behind law enforcement’s refusal to believe that a serial killer was at work.

Stevie Cameron first began following the story of missing women in 1998, when the odd newspaper piece appeared chronicling the disappearances of drug-addicted sex trade workers from Vancouver’s notorious Downtown Eastside. It was February 2002 before Robert William Pickton was arrested, and 2008 before he was found guilty, on six counts of second-degree murder. These counts were appealed and in 2010, the Supreme Court of Canada rendered its conclusion. The guilty verdict was upheld, and finally this unprecedented tale of true crime can be told.

    On the Farm seem every bit an intriguing and thrilling literary masterpiece. Chronicling the disappearances of drug-addicted sex trade workers makes the story more compelling.
