A Woman's Head Is Found Floating In A Lake...Who Did It?
Play • 22 min

When a woman’s head bobbed to the surface on Lake Waco in Central Texas no one had the slightest clue about who she was or how she died.

An autopsy revealed that she had been decapitated and there was no sign of the rest of her body in the lake.

As veteran Texas Ranger John Aycock began to learn more about the woman’s life (profilers call it victimology), he declared the likely identity of the murder suspect.

Now he just had to prove it.

They call it a “Rangers Intuition” developed from years of investigating homicides in rural Texas and questioning killers.

Former U.S. prosecutor Bill Johnston and investigative reporter Robert Riggs explain how Ranger Aycock “got his man” in this episode of True Crime Reporter™ Confidential.
