Episode 6 of Crime Historian: the Podcast is a full length episode that tells the story of the Trinity Murders, named for the school the victims attended. Scott Christopher Nelson and Richard David Stephenson, two high school juniors, were kidnapped, raped, and murdered on their way to a high school football game in 1984. This happened in my hometown of Louisville, Kentucky and has haunted me ever since I first heard the story.

Little did the boys know, they would not reach their destination. When they got lost and stopped to ask for directions, they were taken advantage of by Victor Taylor and George Wade who forced them to drive to an abandoned parking lot. They would not make it out of that situation alive, and now one perpetrator is serving life in prison while the other awaits a death sentence.
