It is in very poor taste to play courtroom audio of a grieving mother whose daughter was murdered.

Description

Beyond the beaches, the theme parks, the palm trees and the warm breezes lies the dark side of the Sunshine State. Wondery and the South Florida Sun Sentinel present a true-crime podcast that bring you stories of some of Florida’s most notorious and stunning crimes. Hosted by EmmaKate Austin, Season 2 will take you through some of the darkest corners we’ve explored yet. New episodes are coming Oct. 2 and will be released every Tuesday.

UPDATE: Verdict in the Casey's Nickelodeon Murder trial | 8
00:33:42

It's the murder case that launched the Felonious Florida podcast in 2018. There's been a verdict in the trial of Pablo Ibar, accused of murdering Butch Casey, Sharon Anderson and Marie Rogers in South Florida in 1994. It's the fifth time a jury has considered evidence against a suspect in the brutal home invasion — but this time, it's not the remarkable 22-minute video recording of the murders that's the key to the case. There's new evidence against Pablo. Will his high-powered defense team find a way to overcome it?

Be sure to listen to Episodes 1-4 of the first season of the show before listening to this update — start with the episode titled The Executions.

The Killer Clown of Wellington, Part 2 | 7
00:54:05

The early days of the search for the killer clown focus on Marlene Warren's husband, Michael, and the repo woman who worked on his used car lot, Sheila Keen. There appeared to be motive: An insurance payout, investment properties, a lavish home and an affair. But there's little or no hard evidence. As Michael goes to prison for illegal activities on his lot, the investigation into his wife's murder goes ice cold. Until 27 years later, when the secret lives of a married Virginia couple are exposed, and the alleged killer clown is finally unmasked.

The Killer Clown of Wellington, Part 1 | 6
00:40:04

When Marlene Warren answered a morning knock on her front door on Memorial Day weekend in 1990, a clown delivering flowers and balloons was smiling back at her. But her delight instantly turned to horror when the clown pulled a gun and put a bullet in her face. Police jumped on the trail of the killer clown almost immediately, and our reporters found that the investigation led them into the darkest corners of the Sunshine State — from loansharking and drug smuggling to prostitution and seedy affairs. But as a mountain of circumstantial evidence piled up and two possible suspects emerged, the case went ice cold.

The Disappearance of Lisa Spence, Part 2 | 5
00:45:26

Police looking into the disappearance of Lisa are convinced there's foul play involved. With nothing else to go on, they devise an unusual plan to crack the case. Within days, their text from the grave pays off — it leads them to a gruesome discovery in an empty field near Miami and to the man they say brutally murdered Lisa Spence.

The Disappearance of Lisa Spence, Part 1 | 4
00:47:43

The text came in to Paul Edwards’ cell phone from his girlfriend, Lisa Spence. “Just wait till I got better,” it said. But it wasn’t so much what the text said, but that it had been sent at all. A month earlier, in October 2009, Lisa had vanished after a night shift at a beauty supply store and hadn’t been seen again. When other friends and family start getting texts from Lisa, police begin to wonder if Lisa was actually the person sending the texts, or whether this case was more than a simply missing person.

In the conclusion of The Encino Murders, Camile Hamilton confronts Kevin Pratt after an in-person lineup — and the encounter is explosive. Kevin insists he didn’t kill anybody, but when the DNA evidence gets stronger he faces the death penalty.

The Encino Murders, Part 2 | 2
00:39:34

Camile Hamilton is starting to remember what happened to her that brutal night in August 2009. A tiny piece of evidence and a series of breaks leads the Encino Street triple murder investigation to a homeless man with a criminal history named Kevin Pratt. But our investigative reporter finds inconsistencies in Camile's recollections that lead to questions about how reliable they are. And there's one more major disappointment for investigators.

The Encino Murders, Part 1 | 1
00:36:05

On a warm summer night in August 2009, an intruder shot Camile Hamilton in the face inside a suburban Florida home. A staggering 14 hours after the attacker fled, Camile wakes up — barely alive and with a bullet still inside her neck. Three others, including Camile’s teenage daughter, are dead. The crime scene is brutal and complicated, and neighbors didn't see anything. The search is on for a killer.

PABLO | 4
00:49:16

Seth Penalver is a free man, acquitted by a jury in the brutal 1994 Casey's Nickelodeon Murders after spending six years on Death Row. Pablo Ibar spent 16 years on Death Row before his conviction was thrown out. Soon, he'll get another chance to convince a jury of his innocence. Supporters in his father's native Spain have rallied to fund his defense, raising nearly $800,000. Can they overcome a solid eyewitness who says he saw Pablo driving away from the murder scene? And now there's new evidence: Pablo's DNA was found on a shirt left behind at Butch Casey's house, prosecutors say.
