Víctor Saldaño

Victor Saldano was convicted of murder and sentenced to death for a murder he committed in Plano, Texas. His mental state has declined severely and it brings into question, should we reconsider the death penalty for those who experience a severe mental defect as a result of the isolation they experience on death row? Share your thoughts below.

The Boles Family Massacre

The murder of an entire family is an incredible tragedy, but when no apparent motive exists, and the case remains unsolved, it is a double tragedy. Today’s episode is about a case that is 55 years old, with no arrests made, and very few clues to go on. These murders are plagued with more questions than answers.

Savage Appetites: A conversation with author Rachel Monroe

This is a departure from what you’re used to hearing. Since I have been shuffling my recording equipment around, I didn’t have enough time to get my regular set up ready before needing to record this episode. Instead, I wanted to give you an idea of what our GetVokl streams are like. I would love for you to join me every Thursday at 7pm CST to talk with new authors and other true crime topics. We at TCFC thank you for your support and will have a regular episode next week!

Duty to Warn

The medical system prides itself on following the Hippocratic oath – never revealing the secrets of patients. Even in some legal cases, medical records cannot be released without subpoenas or warrants. This has made it possible for psychiatric patients to make threats while in therapy, without worrying their therapist will report the threats to the police or the intended victim. Today, we have three cases where victims and their families questioned whether therapists have a duty to warn.

The Wood Family Massacre

Florida is not a stranger to violent and shocking crimes. But, one crime in Tampa is still remembered for its brutality, over 30 years later. What caused a meek, mild-mannered man to slaughter an entire family, including an eight and a half-month old fetus, ripped from its mother’s belly?

The Murder of Timothy MacNeil

Teenagers that kill aren’t widespread. Murderous youngsters is a disturbing thought for most people. An even more troubling idea is that those teenagers, a sibling duo no less, would plot and carry out a plan to murder the only adult that ever protected them. Together, 19-year old Nathaniel Gann and his 17-year old sister Brae Hansen killed their step-father, Timothy MacNeil, in cold blood. They did it simply because Timothy told Brae that she would have to move out of his house when she turned 18, which she deemed unacceptable. Nathan didn’t hesitate to help his sister with her deadly deed, agreeing to help kill the only man they ever considered a father. Murder most certainly is not the typical response to teenage anger. Today’s story is a tragic one, about a pair of siblings who killed, for no other motive than plain old selfishness.

Very few rapists seem to be in touch with their sexual deviance and proclivities; fewer still ask to remain behind bars, to protect the public. But one mild-mannered, unassuming rapist-killer did just that, but was released on parole anyway. The results were devastating for many.
