What the Hal? Cold Case Murders

You've probably never heard of Barbara Jean Jepsen, but in 1956 her murder made headlines. Jepsen's husband found her stabbed to death at their home in Van Nuys. She was four months pregnant at the time. At one point, Liberace's brother was a suspect. So were several soldiers at a local military base. Now, more than six decades later, the Jepson cold case is back open.

Stephanie Lazarus was once a well-respected Los Angeles police detective. But she had a big secret. Lazarus killed her ex-boyfriend's wife, and got away with it for more than two decades, until DNA caught up with her. It all came crashing down when cold-case investigators made the arrest. 

Our guests are Det. Mario Santana, Det. Rachel Evans, Det. Ken White, Det. Marc Martinez from LAPD's Valley Bureau Homicide and Matthew McGough, who wrote the true-crime book "The Lazarus Files."
