Woman Killed in North Carolina



In this episode, we continue with part 9 of the murder of Leoda Childress, that poor North Carolina girl who was shot in the heart with a .22 rifle. The mystery continues! We also have the first part of the death of a bank ‘runner’. This man was transporting over $65 grand from a bank in New Jersey to a bank in Philly when he disappeared. Now a group of hunters have found his body in a shallow grave in the woods. And he’s wearing brand new clothes and shoes that have seen no wear. Did he abscond with the cash and was then killed, or was he kidnapped and killed for the money?
