The Minister Who Almost Got Away With Murder
Play • 1 hr 2 min

Husbands who murder their wives often go to great lengths to concoct stories about their disappearance or sudden death.

They may give tearful appeals for help on television newscasts.

They typically think that they are smarter than the police and can get away with murder.

But there are no perfect crimes.  

Murderers often slip up when they try to make the crime scene look like what they’ve seen on television shows. 

Eagle-eyed investigators can see right through it.

This True Crime Reporter™ Confidential goes inside of two cases from the career of former federal prosecutor Bill Johnston.

In the first case, a charismatic Baptist preacher in Waco initially fools the police into believing that his wife committed suicide.

In the second case, a husband tries to murder his wife by setting off a bomb in her office to kill everyone so the police won’t suspect she was the target.
