This week American Monster examines the case of Kevin Dowling, who was convicted of killing a store clerk to prevent her testifying against him.
In 1996 Jennifer Myers had been attacked at Gray Fox Gallery in Spring Grove, which she owned and operated. Her assailant had robbed and then attempted to rape her.
A few months later Myers spotted her attacker working at a local gas station and called the police. He was charged with robbery and indecent assault but before the trial started Myers was found dead. She’d been shot in the head and chest at the same gallery where the attack had taken place.
During the trial Dowling produced a video tape that he said showed he was away fishing at the time of the murder
