LISTEN LIVE: CLICK HERE We’re pleased to welcome back Debra Gauthier, author of Bright Lights, Dark Places. Debra was our guest on October 2nd and we ran out of time before she could complete her story. She was one of the first female patrol officers hired under the same standards as men on the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. She spent 21 years on the force, leaving it in 2001. During her tenure she faced down suspects who were high on PCP, had high-speed chases into oncoming traffic and used her martial arts skills to subdue burly men.

She sometimes faced discrimination in the male-dominated profession, suffering demotions and unsafe working conditions when other officers would not provide backup. Tonight Debra will tell us about the types of discrimination she encountered and how she dealt with them. Little could stand in Debra Gauthier’s …

TRUE CRIME UNCENSORED: Punk Rock Turned Journalist Steve Miller!

TRUE CRIME UNCENSORED! Live Saturday 2pm PT/5pm ET  LISTEN LIVE ON OUTLAW RADIO through this Radio Loyalty link!             Edgar Award nominee Steve Miller joins host Burl Barer!     Author of the new best-seller, NOBODY’S WOMEN On a Thursday evening in late October 2009, Cleveland Police detectives arrived at the home of Anthony Sowell—an ex-Marine and a registered sex offender—to arrest him on week-old rape charges. But this was no ordinary house, nor would it be a routine arrest. For even though Sowell was not at home, officers knew immediately something was horribly wrong. After initially finding two rotting corpses inside the home, their investigation would lead them to discover the bodies of eleven women. This is the shocking true account of Sowell’s legacy of depravity and cold-blooded murder. His mannered and well-spoken veneer masked a monster who felt no mercy for those he butchered. His twisted existence spent among the decaying bodies of his victims. And how he picked his victims from the fringes of society—lost souls with criminal records or drug habits that would make them less likely to …
