It’s a crime that even after exoneration many of the exonerees continue to carry a criminal record with them making it almost impossible to get a decent job, make a living, and carry on with their lives.

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 …

Listen Live Feb. 11th 2pm Pacific/5pm Eastern/10pm UK CLICK HERE On the Farm: Robert William Pickton and the Tragic Story of Vancouver’s Missing Women Stevie Cameron, famed Canadian investigative journalist! Covering the case of one of North America’s most prolific serial killer gave Stevie Cameron access not only to the story as it unfolded over many years in two British Columbia courthouses, but also to information unknown to the police – and not in the transcripts of their interviews with Pickton – such as from Pickton’s long-time best friend, Lisa Yelds, and from several women who survived terrifying encounters with him. You will now learn what was behind law enforcement’s refusal to believe that a serial killer was at work. Stevie Cameron first began following the story of missing women in 1998, when the odd newspaper piece appeared chronicling the disappearances of drug-addicted sex trade workers from Vancouver’s notorious Downtown Eastside. It was February 2002 before Robert William Pickton was arrested, and 2008 before he was found guilty, on six counts of second-degree murder. These …
