INFAMOUS: The LaSalle Street Murders
When a couple of young Indianapolis businessmen fail to show up for work in December of 1971, their secretary grows concerned as the day goes on, and a friend volunteers to swing by their house to check up on them. He never could have expected the carnage he would find inside, or how it would set off one of the strangest investigations in Indiana history. Was the perp the jealous partner of one of the men's many romantic conquests? A businessman with a grudge? A contract killer hired by the Mob to send a message? Or even by the White House itself?Source materials for this episode cannot be listed here due to character limitations.

MYSTERIOUS DEATH OF: Douglas Wagg, Jr.
10-05-2024
MYSTERIOUS DEATH OF: Douglas Wagg, Jr.
Since the release of CounterClock Season 1, Delia has received hundreds of requests from families of victims of violent crime. In November 2022, one message in her inbox stood out from the rest. It was from a middle-aged woman asking for Delia's help investigating the mysterious death of her 27-year-old brother from 1991. The message stood out for one big reason. The man's mangled body was found in an all-too familiar place to Delia. Eastern North Carolina.33 years after Douglas Wagg, Jr. turned up on a lone stretch of railroad tracks in the middle of the night in rural Martin County, and over a year since Delia took on the case, the scope of what was really going on in the area during the 1990s has come into view. Who was Doug? How did he end up so far from home? Who was he last seen with? Was the train really what killed him? Why was his case never investigated?The journey to find the answers to those questions has revealed a web of small town secrets that feel like fiction, except they're not. Over the course of the Season 6 investigation Delia has interviewed more than 45 people, spoken with convicted murderers in prison, and traced the origins of a disturbing pattern of behavior within local law enforcement that may have resulted in a decades-long cover up of multiple deaths. The investigation into what happened to Doug Wagg appears to be just the tip of a very large, very complicated iceberg that someone has worked hard to keep hidden for more than three decades.Access to all episodes of CounterClock Season 6 is now available at the $10 and $20 tiers in the Crime Junkie Fan Club App.  For even more time with CounterClock, follow us on social media.Instagram: @counterclockpodcast | @audiochuckTwitter: @CounterClockPod | @audiochuckFacebook: /CounterClockPodcast | /audiochuckllc
