The Attempted Murder & Disappearance of Martha Martinez Maxwell
Play • 36 min
In April of 1987, authorities in Carter County, Oklahoma found a Watauga, Texas woman on the side of the highway barely clinging to life. She was bound with duct tape, severely beaten, and covered in the blood that had poured from the slit in her throat. The woman was Martha Martinez Maxwell. After doctors at Dallas’s Parkland Hospital saved her life, she dropped charges on the man who’d left her for dead 100 miles from home – her husband, Jeffrey Allan Maxwell. The man, too, manipulated Martha into reconciling with him. Five years later, Martha went missing under suspicious circumstances. And Jeffrey Allan Maxwell’s further crimes, at least some of them, landed him in prison for life 20 years later. The man is suspected, too, in other unsolved Texas disappearances and homicides.

Episode 46: Jaheem Harris (Part 2)
Last week, I told you the story of Jaheem Harris, who died on July 8, 2017 after his mother’s ex-boyfriend, who was allowed to babysit Jaheem and his siblings despite a no-contact order between the man and Jaheem’s mother, called 911 to report that Jaheem had possibly drowned in the bathtub. Jaheem’s extensive blunt force injuries led police to arrest the man, who was ultimately convicted and sentenced to 50 years in prison with no mandatory minimum. This is a story of a little boy who was failed by not only child protective services but also the criminal justice system -- and, many believe, by his own mother. On today’s episode, you’ll hear my conversation with Jaheem’s paternal grandmother, Shay Caston, who raised her grandson for most of his short life, and who Jaheem called “my real Mama.” This is part 2 of the heartbreaking story of Jaheem Harris.
