So much has been written about the 15-year-old killed in the gated Greenwhich, Connecticut, community in 1975 and her convicted killer Michael Skakel 37 years later, that we can’t link everything.

EPISODE 16: A Tale of Two (Fake) Rockefellers
Two totally different guys, but with one basic idea: Call yourself Rockefeller and watch the $$$$ roll in. They both were successful, too, right up until they weren’t. One, Christian Gerhertsreiter, ended up convicted of murder and is serving time in a California prison. The other, Christopher Rocancourt, is a B-list celebrity in his home country of France, appearing on talk shows and games shows. At least we think so. We don’t speak French, so it’s hard to tell.

EPISODE 14: Going Postal
There were a lot of stories behind the 1984 Edmond, Oklahoma, post office shooting, in which Patrick Shirrell killed 14 and wounded many others. The shooting, the worst in a series of shootings at post offices and/or by postal workers, spurred the term “going postal,” and ushered in an era that we now almost take for granted. One of the best ways that story is told is through the eyes of union steward Ron Blackwell in a series of news clips and other video, a look back in time.
EPISODE 13: Chandra Levy
Although it ran in 2008, before the Ingmar Guandique developments in the case, the Washington Post 2008 series that spurred Gandique’s arrest is the go-to for information on this case, as are it’s later stories about how the case fell apart.

The New Hampshire Union Leader has covered the story from the beginning, read the latest here and follow its links to other stories.
EPISODE 10: Jonestown
It’s not about drinking Kool-Aid. It’s about megalomania, and a 909-person murder suicide. After watching this chilling 2006 PBS documentary, you’ll never joke about “drinking the Kool-Aid” again. Anyway, it was FlavorAde.
EPISODE 3: Ayla Reynolds
20-month-old Ayla Reynolds disappeared from her father’s Waterville, Maine, home overnight December 17, 2011. There hasn’t been a trace of her since and there have never been any charges in the case. The Morning Sentinel of Waterville has been there from the beginning.
EPISODE 2: Todd Kohlhepp
Todd Kohlhepp, charged with killing six in South Carolina, was a hot-shot realtor with a troubled past. As his case progresses, two local newspapers, The Greenville News and the Gaston Gazette, have covered the case with detail and persistence.
