John Emil List was authorities term a family annihilator. In 1971, List murdered his mother, his wife, and his three children. A manhunt for List ensued but he was able to allude police for 18 years. It took the help of the television show America's Most Wanted to bring him to justice.

Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the bizarre and twisted case of John List. How could someone murder the people in their life that they are supposed to care for the most? For John List, he has cited over the years that he was trying to spare his family and the pain and humiliation of financial ruin. Did he honestly believe that in his twisted mind, or, was that just an excuse to start anew and be free from his family and debt?
