The Ghastly Story Of A Mother Who Murdered Her Children
Play • 41 min

The 1950s were called the “Happy Days”. The war was over. The economy was booming.

The American Dream was in full swing. In 1957 it was estimated that one baby was being born every second.

The Lone Ranger was a hit TV show. Little boys acted out their mythical western adventures on stick horses.

But the dream became a nightmare for two brothers in Texas. Their murders at the hand of their knife-wielding mother shocked the world.

This is the story of how Annie Williams was supposed to spend the rest of her life in prison for dismembering her boys. But contrary to what her sentencing jury was told, Williams was set free on parole.

Williams jumped parole and disappeared for sixteen years until fugitive hunter Louis Fawcett got on her trail. 

This is the 57-year long account of a mother who murdered her sons with malice.
