45. The Murder of Dr. Jack Wilson

December 23, 2018

Memorial Day Weekend 1992, Betty Wilson walked into her 3-story home in an upscale part of Huntsville, Alabama to find her husband lying on the floor in a pool of blood.  Dr. Jack Wilson was a successful optometrist, well liked, and generous to the community and no one could figure out who would want him dead. What was initially thought to be a burglary gone horribly wrong would soon turn into one of the most sensationalized cases in Alabama history.
