Prairie Village, KS was set on edge in the summer of 1974. The quiet, safe community had a murderer in it’s midst. 13 year old Lizbeth Wilson disappeared on July 7. Her partial remains were found six months later in an open field nine miles from where she had last been seen. One man stood out as the murder suspect , and even with what seemed strong evidence found in the trunk of his car, the police could not arrest him. I spoke to Debra Niewald, a witness in this case. Even after all the time that has passed, Debra remembers the details of that day with distinct clarity and she takes us back there during the interview. It took 30 years, but the murderer was finally put behind bars. Listen as I take you through the events of that fateful day and to what it took to put the killer in prison for good.
Beth shares with us the legend of Stull Cemetery, one of the 7 gateways to hell….or is it? More than likely, if you live in Kansas, you have been told the story of Stull Cemetery. Stories of the cemetery have been passed down for over 100 years, but where did the legend come from? And does the devil really visit the the cemetery twice every year? Beth covers all of this and adds some fun and haunting tales. All while sipping on a delicious cocktail, Kansas City Ice Water. Cheers
