Episode Date
The Family Business (Back from the Dead)
00:23:07

(This episode features content from a previous episode of My Life of Crime.)

How murder, mayhem and a not so average mom shaped the life of Hollywood filmmaker Nicholas Musurca. Nick’s specialty is horror films. His childhood revolved around his mother’s unusual occupation- TV crime reporter for 48 Hours. He grew up on tales of abducted children, eerie crime scenes and serial killers. One of those notorious murderers, known as “BTK,” mailed some of his artwork to the house. Why? Because his mother gave out their home address.


Nick's mother, none other than crime reporter Erin Moriarty, believed that the killer’s artwork was essential to reporting the story… and she figured the killer wasn’t getting out of jail anytime soon. This funny, warm, biting podcast about combining motherhood with investigating murder delves into the relationship between Hollywood horror and true crime. Hosted jointly by Erin Moriarty and her partner in crime at 48 Hours, correspondent Richard Schlesinger, the podcast showcases what it’s like to cover some of the country’s most infamous crimes and the victims who must live through them.

And you remember Pam Smart; her murder trial made national headlines. All of them are practicing and performing gospel and R&B in this unusual rehabilitation program run by volunteer musicians. We speak to the women of Bedford Hills openly and candidly about the crimes that brought them here, and the music that helps them escape -- at least temporarily.

If He Were A Killer, He Would Be Out By Now
00:23:05

Patrick Flaherty was 22 years old when he took a BB gun and robbed convenience stores to pay his rent. His take was $459 dollars. No one was injured. That was in 1999. Flaherty was sentenced to 40 years and remains in prison. Some murderers get less time. Those who kill are often paroled long before their sentences are served. But Patrick Flaherty must serve almost his entire sentence, 34 years, that is, unless someone hears his plea for a second chance. In the years he has been in prison, Patrick has turned his life around. He has translated thousands of pages into Braille and is currently on track to get his MBA. Patrick is soft spoken and articulate. Should he be released early? His victims argue the psychological wounds they suffered cannot be ignored. We look at the debate and the staggering cost to keep him locked up. Does the punishment fit the crime?

Lizzie Borden: Part 2
00:21:32

Erin Moriarty spends the night at the Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast/Museum. Ghosts or not, there is a haunting story that lingers here. The mystery: Why would a 32-year-old woman born into wealth and privilege kill her father and stepmother with an ax? Did she do it? In Part 2 of this unusual narrative, Lizzie Borden is on trial for two brutal murders. Author Cara Robertson has written a fascinating book about Lizzie’s trial and takes us back in time to the justice system of the last century. Cara’s book is written right from the court record. The prosecution has a strong case: Lizzie was home at the time of the murders, she burned a dress and she may have had a motive. The jury deliberated for 90 minutes and the verdict will surprise you.

Lizzie Borden: Part 1
00:18:57

Erin Moriarty takes us to Fall River, Massachusetts, where one of the most sensational crimes of the 19th century took place. The crime inspired the dark nursery rhyme “Lizzie Borden took an ax and gave her mother 40 whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her father 41.”

Despite what everyone thinks they know, there is a stunning verdict in the case. In part 1 of this unusual road trip, Erin takes us to the scene of the crime - the house where the murders took place is now The Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast/Museum. We learn about the Borden family and what happened on that fateful day in August of 1892. It was a brutal crime scene and there are actual death photos hanging in the house. Erin will spend the night here. She is looking for a motive, evidence and maybe a ghost or two.
