In November 2016, William Riley Gaul fatally shot his 16-year-old girlfriend, Emma Walker, while she slept. His defense attorneys argued that he never meant to kill her. He was only trying to scare her so he could be a “hero.” Prosecutors claimed that Riley murdered Emma because he couldn’t handle it when she ended their two-year relationship.

Join Mike and Gibby as they discuss William Riley Gaul and the murder of Emma Walker. Gaul did his best to cover his tracks, but in the end, there was no doubt that he murdered Emma. The biggest question boiled down to his intent. Did he intend to kill her as the prosecution contended, or was he trying to win her back by scaring her? This is a case that has divided many people. But, no matter what side you land on, one fact remains, a young woman lost her life at the hands of William Gaul.
