216: The Wellnitz Family Murders
Listen now
For nearly a decade, the Wellnitz family murders haunted the small town of Columbia, Kentucky. The tight knit community had no clue why these good people were mercilessly executed in their own home. They were known for their thriving veterinary clinic and their kind hearts. But someone had been viciously murdered the family and even though investigators were pretty sure they knew who did it, the case went cold. It took ten years and heroic undercover work to get justice for the Wellnitz family.  Hosted and produced by Erica Kelley  Researched and written by Andrea Marshbank  Additional writing by Erica Kelley Edited and Mixed by Brandon Schexnayder & Erica Kelley Original Graphic Art by Coley Horner  Original Music by Rob Harrison of Gamma Radio  Suggested by Dana Schmidt Sources: https://www.southernfriedtruecrime.com/wellnitz-family This episode is brought to you by:   Visit SimpliSafe.com/southernfried to get 20% off any new system with Fast Protect Monitoring.
