Corey Wieneke was popular. He’d been a high school football star, and soon after graduation, he began working in his family’s bar -- Wink’s Bar & Grill. His good looks and gregarious personality made him a well-liked bartender in West Liberty, Iowa. That’s why it was such a shock when, in 1992, Corey was discovered beaten to death in his home.

Then Kristin tells us about Gerald Gilbert, who was beaten to death with a fire extinguisher in his workplace. Gerald’s murder was so brutal that a doctor later testified that his head nearly exploded. The crime wasn’t tough to solve. Soon after Gerald’s body was discovered, his ex-wife Ann Huxley, arrived at the scene. When she heard about the crime, she handed police a list of possible suspects.

And now for a note about our process. For each episode, Kristin reads a bunch of articles, then spits them back out in her very limited vocabulary. Brandi copies and pastes from the best sources on the web. And sometimes Wikipedia. (No shade, Wikipedia. We love you.) We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the real experts who covered these cases.
