In February 1986, a slightly less-than-concerned wife called the Lexington Police in Lexington Kentucky, to report her 22-year-old husband, Michael Turpin, missing.
Officers responded to the apartment that the new couple shared, and found disturbing evidence, that led them to ask for the Homicide Unit to assist.
Then Homicide Unit Sergeant Fran Root responded. His experiences at the scene triggered his intuition, and he and the investigators began an investigation that uncovered the results of a perfect storm of evil, formed when three awfully bad people conspire to submit to greed.
Join Fran Root and Ray “The DA” Larson for two episodes that deep dive into this case, deeper than the national TV shows and documentaries that have covered this over the years.
