In the days that followed, he leveraged the Kennedy political machine to shield himself from scrutiny and safeguard his presidential aspirations. As the investigation progressed, his story about the events leading up to the crash started to fall apart. Soon he faced accusations that not even the Kennedys could overcome.

Short Stories #2 (Tony Harrelson & Robert Pillsen-Rahier)
This episode contains two separate, unrelated stories that haven't been reported on much in the past. In October of 2009, 46-year-old Tony Harrelson was shot and killed in Camp Hill, Alabama. A truck driver for the U.S. Postal Service, Tony is believed to have fallen prey to a gunman who had been robbing postal workers throughout eastern Alabama between 2008 and 2009. In July of 1990, 15-year-old Robert Pillsen-Rahier would disappear while spending time at the Cheyenne Mesa Adolescent Treatment Facility in Colorado Springs. While investigators never found any evidence of foul-play, Robert's mother continues to believe that employees of the facility know more than they ever told police.

***Sponsored by: Simplisafe. Visit Simplisafe.com/Trace for a free HD Camera when you sign up! Solid Gold. Visit SolidGoldPet.com/Trace*** Seventy-six year old Al Sicherer was finally living his life out in the open. After the passing of his beloved wife of forty years, Al confessed his secret: he was gay. Having his own health problems, Al decided it was now or never and he wanted to live his life honestly and by following his heart. Al maintained a quiet life, most of the neighbors at his condo knew him only as the quiet gentleman on the sixteenth floor. However, at night, Al began going to bars and clubs, seeking out potential partners. Sadly, one of those partners may have been the man who eventually killed him. In July of 2001, Al's daughter Beverly made the horrifying discovery. Al had been brutally beaten and stabbed. There were a lot of clues, fingerprints, DNA, a shoe print and surveillance footage. Despite all of this, though, the name of the man last seen with Al has remained a mystery. If only that mystery could be solved, Al's killer could be brought to justice.
