Jane Stanford Part 1 of 2

Episode 38 Jane Stanford Part 1 of 2 Jane Stanford, co-founder of Stanford University, died on her Hawaii vacation in 1905 after drinking from a bottle of mineral water that had been laced with pure strychnine. The university president, David Starr Jordan, claimed she died of ‘natural causes,’ though Jane had survived an attempt on her life only weeks prior after drinking from a different mineral water that was found to contain rat poison. No one really believed she died naturally. And while some conjectured that Jane decided to die by suicide on that Hawaii getaway, there is far more evidence to suggest that Jane was murdered. But who actually poisoned her has never been solved.

Introducing Exposed: Cover-Up at Columbia University from Wondery

  Introducing Exposed: Cover-Up at Columbia University from Wondery Dr. Robert Hadden was a trusted OB-GYN at Columbia University. Friendly, caring, unassuming… and behind the closed door of exam rooms, one of the most prolific sexual predators in New York City. During his 25-year career, he assaulted hundreds, perhaps thousands, of patients, under the guise of medical exams. Those who tried to warn Columbia were ignored or not believed. When it appeared that no one — not Hadden, not Columbia — would be held to account, it was the survivors who undertook a decade-long fight for justice.   From Wondery, Exposed: Cover-Up at Columbia University is a story about power: who has it, who loses it, and what it takes to get it back.   Follow Exposed on Amazon Music or wherever you get your podcasts. You can listen ad-free by subscribing to Wondery Plus in Apple Podcasts or the Wondery app.   Listen to Exposed

Police discovered that her car had been deliberately disabled, and concluded that her attacker had deliberately sabotaged it in order to get to her. The case was thoroughly investigated, but had started to cool when an anonymous confession letter arrived – claiming responsibility for the murder in great detail. Additional letters added to the mystery. And then, another killer dominated the headlines in California – a killer who also sent anonymous letters that bore marked similarities to the confession letter.

Annie Le

Episode 17 Annie LeIn 2009, pharmacology graduate student and soon-to-be bride Annie Le went to her research lab in the basement of a medical research facility at Yale University. She never left. She was finally found on her wedding day, stuffed into a tiny hole behind a wall panel in the laboratory building locker room. Investigators knew that her killer had to be someone with access to the facility – someone who, like Annie, was affiliated with Yale.

Dana Bailey

Episode 15 Dana BaileyIn 1987, Penn State senior Dana Bailey was the victim of a man police believe was stalking her. He watched her from an adjacent building, and one night he scaled rooftops and climbed into her apartment and murdered her. Dana was found posed in a sexually suggestive manner, and police believe her killer did this so he could enjoy his handiwork. Anonymous letters and calls from tipsters kept investigators busy, but police never had any good suspects in this case – every lead went cold. Dana Bailey’s case took a twist when the DA assigned to her case, Ray Gricar, went missing in 2005. He has never been found – and Dana’s case remains unsolved.For news, information, and updates about Campus Killings, or to contact the show, visit our website: https://www.abjackentertainment.com/campus-killingsFollow Campus Killings on Social Media.On Twitter-https://twitter.com/CampusKillingsOn Facebook- https://www.facebook.com/CampuskillingsCampus Killings is hosted by Dr. Meghan Sacks and Dr. Amy Shlosberg.Research and Writing by Jessica BettencourtProduced by Mike Morford of AbJack EntertainmentBe sure to listen to Amy and Meghan's other podcasts:Women and Crimehttps://womenandcrimepodcast.com/&Direct Appealhttps://directappealpodcast.com/

Suzanne 'Suzy' Lyall

Episode 14 Suzanne 'Suzy' LyallThe 1998 disappearance of Suzanne Lyall, who was known to many as Suzy, is one of the better-known missing persons cases. Suzy was a studious and industrious student at SUNY-Albany who was abducted after taking a bus back to campus from work on the night of March 2nd. No evidence of Suzy was ever found again – except for the strange appearance of her work ID in a parking lot, and someone using her ATM card to withdraw $20. Suzy’s boyfriend was a prime suspect in her disappearance – but many have their doubts about his involvement. Another theory – that a mysterious serial killer was responsible for Suzy’s disappearance – has gained more traction in recent years.

Pam Milam

Episode 4 Pam MilamIn this episode we discuss a truly devastating campus murder – the 1972 abduction, rape and slaying of college student Pam Milam. Pam was enjoying sorority rush week at Indiana State University in Terre Haute. She attended some evening events with her friends, and left a party before midnight to go move her car closer to the dormitory suite. She never returned. The next day her father located her distinct vehicle parked in a different spot, and in the trunk was Pam, bound and strangled. Authorities looked at numerous suspects, including a fellow student who abducted and raped at least 2 women, but the case went cold. Forensic Genealogy conducted decades later pointed to a suspect no one had ever considered – multiple offender Jeffrey Lynn Hand. We will take a look at Hand, and the nexus between the violent rapist and killer and the promising young woman whose life he snuffed out.Follow Campus Killings on Social Media.On Twitter-https://twitter.com/CampusKillingsOn Facebook- https://www.facebook.com/CampuskillingsThe Campus Killings Homepage- https://www.spreaker.com/show/campus-killingsCampus Killings is hosted by Dr. Meghan Sacks and Dr. Amy Shlosberg.Research and Writing by Jessica BettencourtProduced by Mike Morford of AbJack EntertainmentBe sure to listen to Amy and Meghan's other podcasts:Women and Crimehttps://womenandcrimepodcast.com/&Direct Appealhttps://directappealpodcast.com/

Episode 3 Robert BechtelIn 1955, there was a shocking murder at Swarthmore College, in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania. A student, Francis Holmes Strozier, was shot in the head and killed as he slept in his dorm bed. The killer, 22 year old student Robert Bechtel, was the one who alerted others to his crime. But, Bechtel claimed that he was driven to kill others after being the victim of bullying, and at trial, used the insanity defense. Bechtel was institutionalized, but less than 5 years later was a free man. He went on to live a seemingly normal life – even becoming a professor at a college himself. But Bechtel would eventually confess all to his own students – and use his own actions as a call to action to fight campus bullying.Follow Campus Killings on Social Media.On Twitter-https://twitter.com/CampusKillingsOn Facebook- https://www.facebook.com/CampuskillingsThe Campus Killings Homepage- https://www.spreaker.com/show/campus-killingsCampus Killings is hosted by Dr. Meghan Sacks and Dr. Amy Shlosberg.Research and Writing by Jessica BettencourtProduced by Mike Morford of AbJack EntertainmentBe sure to listen to Amy and Meghan's other podcasts:Women and Crimehttps://womenandcrimepodcast.com/&Direct Appealhttps://directappealpodcast.com/

Yeardley Love

Episode 2 Yeardley LoveAt the University of Virginia, famously founded by Thomas Jefferson, no student had ever killed another. In 2010, that changed. Popular and athletic senior Yeardley Love was found in her bed by her roommate, bloodied and battered. A hole in her bedroom door told police that her killer had been very angry – and one man in Yeardley’s life was known for his violent rages. Her ex-boyfriend, fellow senior George Huguely, was arrested for her murder. Huguely stood trial and was convicted. Yeardley’s mother and sister sued both the school and Huguely, but the suit against UVA was dropped. Yeardley’s family won a large civil verdict against her killer, and as a result of Yeardley’s death, UVA now requires students to report arrests, and the Virginia General Assembly passed a law making it easier for people who are in a relationship to obtain a protection order against their abusive partner.Follow Campus Killings on Social Media.On Twitter-https://twitter.com/CampusKillingsOn Facebook- https://www.facebook.com/CampuskillingsThe Campus Killings Homepage- https://www.spreaker.com/show/campus-killingsCampus Killings is hosted by Dr. Meghan Sacks and Dr. Amy Shlosberg.Research and Writing by Jessica BettencourtProduced by Mike Morford of AbJack EntertainmentBe sure to listen to Amy and Meghan's other podcasts:Women and Crimehttps://womenandcrimepodcast.com/&Direct Appealhttps://directappealpodcast.com/

Bonus Episode: Amy BishopWe hear about school shootings all too often these days. These tragedies are typically perpetrated by a mentally unstable juvenile lashing out at his or her schoolmates to express frustration or rage. But what about when the shooter is a teacher? And not just a teacher – an esteemed Harvard-educated college professor? The February 2010 shootings by Professor Amy Bishop of 6 of her University of Alabama colleagues at a biology staff meeting was shocking enough. But when police began to look into Professor Bishop’s past, two other incidents came to light that could have been seen as significant warning signs that something was not right. The professor had other victims – and one was her own brother.

Jeanne Clery

Episode 1 Jeanne CleryIn April 1986, first year student Jeanne Clery, a bubbly member of the tennis team, was brutally slain in her dorm room bed. The crime was incredibly violent and disturbing. But it did not take authorities long to find her killer, as he had confessed – and to everyone’s shock, he was also a Lehigh student. Josoph Henry told his friends he had killed a girl and stolen some of her stuff. Henry was quickly tried for the crime and sentenced to death. His sentence was eventually pleaded down to life in prison. But Jeanne’s legacy lives on, thanks to her parents. The Clerys sued Lehigh for lax security, and initiated a sweeping legislative trend that engendered a federal law named after their daughter. As a result of the Clery Act, colleges and universities that receive federal funds must be accountable for reporting crimes on their campuses, and ensuring that their students stay safe. 'The Clery Act' requires colleges and universities to report campus crime data, support victims of violence, and publicly outline the policies and procedures they have put into place to improve campus safety.
