48 Hours correspondent Erin Moriarty brings listeners into true crime investigations on “My Life of Crime.” In the third season, hear stories about a Baptist preacher accused of staging his wife’s suicide, a young mother killing her ex-husband out of alleged self-defense, and more.
Erin speaks with people involved in each investigation from law enforcement to victims’ friends and families. This season, Erin goes beyond crime scenes, inside prisons, and analyzes killers’ psyches. The stories focus on criminals who got wrapped up in their lies and were so close to getting away scot free.
Since 2019, CBS News Radio’s podcast has released over 30 episodes that run less than 30 minutes on average and can be streamed in any order. Past episodes covered the full jury retry of Lizzie Borden, Don Lewis’ disappearance, and Crosley Green’s overturned conviction in 2018 (even though he was still in prison as of 2021) – just to name a few. In future episodes, Erin dives into the 2009 death of pro boxer, Arturo Gatti, among other stories.
The first episode this season examined 27-year-old Christie Wilson’s murder. In 2005, Christie was last seen leaving a California casino with 53-year-old Mario Garcia, a married father to 2 who was known for his history of turbulent relationships. On the podcast, Erin goes beyond 48 Hours’ episode, “The Search for Christie Wilson” and dives into Mario’s past relationships. His exes included Wendy Ward (who he physically abused), Lynette Smith (who turned up dead), and a woman who wound up at a battered women’s shelter. Mario is in prison and continues to claim his innocence despite DNA evidence linking him to the crime.
Detective Don Murchinson and Debbie Boyd, Christie’s mother, continue the conversation about her death. In this episode, Erin also interviewed Mario, Christie’s convicted killer.
