Killer Cases

Murder on the Panhandle

Florida v. Russell Holbrook. The quiet community of Crestview, Florida was shaken following the vicious murder of beautiful 33 year old nurse Melissa Howard, described as a caring angel, found with her throat slashed in her own living room. Friends were immediately suspicious of Melissa’s ex-husband who had just lost a nasty custody battle over their son Taylor but he had a strong alibi. The case remained unsolved for ten years, until Florida State Agent Detective Meaghan Palumbo, newly assigned to the homicide squad, took a personal interest in the cold case. Using modern day forensics, Palumbo re-tested Melissa’s sweatshirt preserved all those years and found clues to lead them to the DNA of her ex-husband’s best friend, Russell Holbrook, and a dramatic trial as witnesses recounted the true story of Melissa’s last days.

The New Year’s Eve Murder

Michigan v. Kemia Hassel. New Year’s Eve and a seemingly random murder, in the small town of Benton Harbor , on the western shore of Lake Michigan. Police body cam video captured the heartbroken cries of young Army Sergeant Kemia Hessel as she cradled her handsome, dying young husband in her arms, as he was loaded into an ambulance. But despite the happy outward appearance of the attractive young military couple, investigators soon accused Kemia of directing a murder-for-hire plot with the help of a lover she met while deployed in Korea. Her boyfriend quickly confessed and in a dramatic, videotaped jail house phone call, laid out the murder plot to the victim’s father. Kemia at first denied involvement and despite admissions in a lie detector exam, strongly defended her innocence, claiming her comments to police came from exhaustion and grief. She pointed the finger of blame at her jealous boyfriend who she said acted alone.
