Witches in West Memphis - George Jared
This might be the most unjust prosecution in U.S. legal history. If you think what happened to Steven Avery in the true crime film Making a Murderer was shocking, you will be completely appalled by what happened to three little boys and three teens in Arkansas in 1993.Three 8-year-old boys vanished from their West Memphis neighborhood one sunny afternoon. A day later their mangled, nude bodies are found in a drainage ditch. Police and prosecutors believe the killings are related to the occult. Three teens are arrested one month later. Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin, and Jessie Misskelley Jr. are convicted.There’s only one problem. Overwhelming scientific evidence proves they’re innocent and witness after witness has come forward to admit lies were told in court during the original trials.Award-winning journalist George Jared takes readers inside one of the most famous criminal cases in U.S. legal history. Witches in West Memphis gives a comprehensive insiders’ view into the West Memphis Three case. No journalist has written more stories about the case than Jared.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/houseofmysteryradio. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

The Real Mr. Big - Jesus Ruiz-Henao & Ron Chepesiuk
This is the story of an ambitious Colombian refugee who migrated to the United Kingdom and set up a sophisticated drug trafficking organization that the British Security Service MI-5 said made more than a billion pounds over a ten-year period, making him Britain's first billion-dollar cocaine dealer. Ruiz Henao’s impact on the British economy was such that the price of cocaine increased 50 percent for several months after his arrest, earning Ruiz Henao the infamous title, as British law enforcement described him, of being “ the Pablo Escobar of British drug trafficking.”Born in 1960, Jesus Ruiz Henao grew up poor, but wanted to be rich like the drug dealers he saw growing up in the cocaine-producing region of Colombia’s Valle of the Cauca. To realize his ambition, Ruiz Henao moved to London, United Kingdom, in 1985. He and his wife settled in the quiet suburb of Hendon, where he held down mundane but respectable cleaning and bus driving jobsSupport this show http://supporter.acast.com/houseofmysteryradio.
