Manage episode 249512020 series 2593822
In 1985, the family of an Air Force Captain (his wife and two of his three daughters) were found brutally murdered in their home in Fayetteville, NC. After an eye witness pointed at Sergeant Timothy Hennis as a suspect, he was quickly brought to justice. But the Eastburn Family Murders case would be riddled with various errors that would ultimately lead to Tim’s acquittal. The case went cold, until 2005, when the case was reinvigorated by the cold case team. A DNA hit was made, but who was the perpetrator? This case will have you on the edge of your seat. Dig in with Margot as she discusses the case against Master Sergeant Timothy Hennis.
In 2019, this case is still relevant, as the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces recently heard an appeal on October 22, 2019 (listen until the end of this episode for a quick update).
