Was the Jackie Galloway murder inspired by Postmortem?


Under cover of night in Richmond, Virginia, a monster strikes, leaving a gruesome trail of stranglings that has paralyzed the city. Medical examiner Kay Scarpetta suspects the worst: a deliberate campaign by a brilliant serial killer whose signature offers precious few clues. With an unerring eye, she calls on the latest advances in forensic research to unmask the madman. But this investigation will test Kay like no other, because it’s being sabotaged from within—and someone wants her dead.

    Some interesting facts about Postmortum and Patricia Cornwell:

  • Postmortem (Kay Scarpetta) is an award-winning novel and it launched Patricia Cornwell’s career.
  • Postmortem is based on Richmond’s real-life “South Side Strangler” case.
  • Patricia Cornwell is a former reporter and has worked in a medical examiner’s office.

Suspect Convictions Episode 4: True-Crime Experts Give Case Fresh Look

GLT is partnering with the true crime podcast Suspect Convictions to explore the 1998 murder of 3-year-old Bloomington girl Christina McNeil.

Her father was convicted of the crime but has long maintained his innocence, claiming an ex-girlfriend was the real killer—the same woman later convicted in a separate murder. New episodes air Fridays on GLT’s Sound Ideas. You can also subscribe to the podcast.

On this week’s episode of Suspect Convictions, our reporters expand their storytelling to include new perspective from two expert true-crime investigators who have their own questions about the case.

Suspect Convictions reporters Scott Reeder and Willis Kern pause their own reporting to discuss the first three episodes with Aphrodite Jones and Bob Ruff. Those first three episodes covered the discovery of Christina McNeil’s body in 1998, the prosecution’s case against her father Barton and an explanation from Barton’s attorneys at the Illinois Innocence Project about why they

《美国怪兽》重现加州华裔杀夫及二子凶案| 侦查发现者| 谋杀案纪录片 …

【大纪元2017年11月17日讯】2012年被判死刑的罗兰岗华裔女子曾玫琳(Manling Tsang Williams),10年前因杀夫和二名幼子震动南加州侨界,她的个案目前已被“侦查发现者”(Investigation Discovery)电视网拍成真实谋杀案纪录片,即将在周日(10月19日)晚间8点播出。

2007年,住在罗兰岗Camino Bello18200街区的曾玫琳,先用丈夫尼尔‧威廉姆斯(Neal Williams)收藏的剑刺死了他,再用枕头闷死了自己的两个儿子。她是目前加州死囚中的少数女性之一,现被关在位于乔奇拉(Chowchilla)的中加州女子监狱(Central California Women’s Facility)中。“侦查发现者”的《美国怪兽》(American Monster)节目本周将重现她行凶前一家人的生活,以及曾玫琳是如何预谋杀人的。

被害人威廉姆斯当时27岁,是沉溺于收藏剑的“家庭主夫”,曾玫琳是家中唯一出外挣钱的人。2007年8月7日清晨约7:30,当时也是27岁的曾玫琳在杀人后假装刚刚购物回家,却发现家中惨案而报警。

根据邻居的证词,曾玫琳当时尖声惊叫说她先生受伤了。当警察到来时,除证实威廉姆斯死亡,也发现3岁的Lan及7岁的Davon被闷死在各自的上下铺床上。当时,警方迅速觉得曾玫琳可疑,并于次日逮捕了她。审判中,曾玫琳刀刺亲夫90余次等等的谋害过程终于水落石出。

曾玫琳有外遇,她的行凶动机是想从家庭生活中解脱出来,与其情夫重展生活。法官裁决其死刑时表示,曾玫琳出于自私,谋杀了自己的两个孩子和丈夫,是“自恋、自私且不成熟”的。◇
