The Roth Show Wednesday: The Murder of Susann Smith Followed by Monica Caison and Missing Persons

Join Dr. Laurie Roth weekdays at 7-10pm Pacific, 10pm-1am Eastern Listen LIVE or to the Archive:  http://therothshow.com Murdering Susann Smith, Hour #1 Bothell, Washington was the scene of a gruesome murder on February 12, 2013 when Susann Smith, mother of two children, was found beaten with an axe and stabbed in the bathtub of her home. Going through a divorce, and planning to take her children back to her native Germany, Smith most likely didn’t realize she was in the most dangerous time of her life, especially in light of reports of abuse within the marriage. Her estranged husband, Alan Smith, is poised to gain custody of the children and move back into the marital home.  He is named as a “person of interest,” not a suspect, but there are reports of circumstantial evidence that should keep him on the radar. Just a year prior to the murder of Susann Smith, the state of Washington was handling the news that Josh Powell, husband of still missing Susan Powell, had killed his children and himself by …

The Roth Show: 2 Hours with Dottie Laster and Attorney Michelle Cruz, Rescue in Cleveland

Join Dr. Laurie Roth weekdays at 7-10pm Pacific, 10pm-1am Eastern Listen LIVE or to the Archive:  http://therothshow.com  The Rescue in Cleveland Three young women who had gone missing between 2002 and 2004 were found Monday, May 6th inside a home where the shades were said to be always drawn. No one who lives nearby seems to have suspected that there might be kidnapping victims inside, forcibly being held and psychologically coerced for over ten years. From reports coming in it seems that police were called several times over the years, but there was no response when they knocked, so they left, doing nothing else. Witnesses and neighbors reported what they saw and what they suspected, but somewhere there was a disconnect. Dottie Laster will appear to discuss the cases of the three women held against their will and most likely forced to do unspeakable things. Laster’s experience in the rescue and service of over 200 human trafficking victims qualifies her responses that there needs to be more done on all fronts to combat this ever …
