Tracey Richter

Tracey Richter Notes:

On July 26, 2011, 45 year old Tracey Ann Richter was arrested for the murder of 20 year old Dustin Wehde — a crime she is alleged to have committed nearly ten years earlier. Initially, Richter was hailed as a hero. Her story was shared nation-wide in 2002, when she appeared on "The Montel Williams Show." With her husband at the time of the shooting holding onto her hand, she tearfully shared the story of how she bravely defended her family during a home invasion. However, as the investigation into the case continued over the course of the next ten years, evidence was uncovered by law enforcement that indicated that Wehde's death was no accident...

The Villisca Axe Murders

The Villisca Axe Murders Notes:

The Villisca axe murders occurred between the evening of June 10, 1912, and the early morning of June 11, 1912, in the town of Villisca in southwestern Iowa. The six members of the Moore family and two house guests were found bludgeoned in the Moore residence. All eight victims, including four children, had severe head wounds from an axe. A lengthy investigation yielded several suspects, one of whom was tried twice. The first trial ended in a hung jury and the second ended in an acquittal. The crime remains unsolved...
