In this episode, we're discussing two separate murders that happened years apart in Lee County, Illinois. In 1996, 25-year-old Amy Fleming was a teacher who never made it to school one day. Colleagues later found her strangled to death inside her home. Lee County investigators are still actively searching for her killer.

13 years earlier, in 1983, 30-year-old Gary Dawson was found murdered in a Lee County farmer's hog pen. Investigators made arrests early on in the case but couldn't get a murder conviction. Then, many years later, police arrested the same individuals.

Join Mike and Gibby as they discuss these two Lee County murder cases. Amy's killer is still unidentified. The circumstances around Gary's murder are cloudy. Suspects have been arrested. Plea deals have been made. One person is still awaiting trial. The question of who murdered Gary Dawson has not yet been answered. The one certain thing is that investigators in Lee County don't give up.
