One: Richard Aderson 2.5.97

EOn February 5, 1997, Richard Aderson and an unknown motorist had a minor collision on eastbound I-84 in New York state. Soon after stopping to access the damage, Richard had been shot once in the chest and was left to die on the side of the road. Miraculously, he willed himself to crawl back to his vehicle and call 911, where he remained on the phone with an emergency operator for 9 minutes! Sadly, Richard died while being transported to the hospital but he left untold clues in that 911 call that continue to remain hidden from the public view 21 years later.

Two: Forever Aderson

ERichard Aderson may have been the first officialroad ragefatality in New York state after the term road rage seemed to gain popularity in the mid 1990s but he was far from being just a statistic. He was a husband, a father, a brother, a son, a friend, a teacher and so much more than just a number on a sheet of paper. In this episode, we discuss the enormous impact his death had on his family.

Three: Road Rage in Fishkill

EWas Richard Aderson's death a clear case of "road rage?" Or had some in the media rushed to judgment and mistakenly hyped Richard’s death as the first fatal "road rage" incident in New York?

Three: Road Rage in Fishkill

Four: An Ambiguous Investigation

EThe investigation into Richard Aderson's homicide has been kept under tight wraps by the New York State Police for the last two decades. Initially the police appeared to be transparent, seemingly sharing information with the media. But as time has passed, the New York State Police have become increasingly stingy in releasing any information related to Richard's investigation. Why have the police withheld seemingly harmless information? And what are their motives? In this episode, we'll begin to tackle the question of WHY the police have monopolized that information.

Four: An Ambiguous Investigation

Five: Something's Fishy in Fishkill

EThe New York State Police have not only withheld critical information but they may have also intentionally circulated misleading sketches of the suspect in Richard's Aderson's homicide to further divert the public from learning the true identity of the killer. In this episode, we conclude our two part examination of the police investigation and determine whether the police have remained complicit in concealing the truth.

Five: Something's Fishy in Fishkill

Six: Cissy's Sneaking Suspicion

ECissy Taylor, the crime reporter for New Hampshire's Union Leader, covered the Richard Aderson homicide and subsequent investigation with great dedication and persistence. But why did this Manchesterbased reporter dedicate herself to writing eleven articles about a New York homicide over the course of a year and a half? That’s a lot of coverage by any measure. Did Cissy know something about Aderson’s killer that she did not or could not reveal? This podcast may contain information that some may find disturbing.

Six: Cissy's Sneaking Suspicion

Bonus Episode: With Tim and Lance of "Missing Maura Murray"

EBefore February 2018, I had never listened to a podcast. I barely knew how to find one. Then I was introduced to Tim Pilleri and Lance Reenstierna and their "Missing Maura Murray"podcastand I was hooked. Now it's January 2019 and I can't believe I'm actually talking to these guys on my show! In this episode, we touch on the Maura Murray case, their relationship with the New Hampshire State Police and our favorite cuss words. Oh... and I UNAPOLOGETICALLY gush about how they inspired me to create the "Slim Turkey" podcast. And Mr. Slim Turkey is BACK in a preview of our next episode!

Seven: Rose's Thorny Reporting

EOn November 14, 1998 theUnion Leaderran the headline, "Police Clear Derry Man in New York Slaying." Nearly two years after Richard Aderson's homicide, the prime suspect in his murder investigation had apparently been cleared by the New York State Police. Yet after reporting on the Aderson homicide and investigation for 18 long months,Cissy Taylor's name was nowhere to be found in that article. The byline simply read Derek Rose. Who was Derek Rose and how did he come to write the newspaper's last chapter in the Richard Aderson investigation? This podcast may contain information that some may find disturbing.

Seven: Rose's Thorny Reporting

Eight: Yet UnSolved

EAfter 22 years without a viable suspect, has the Richard Aderson case gone cold? Unfortunately, it’s one of a growing number to have met with such a hopeless conclusion. Despite the advances in technology, such as omnipresent surveillance and DNA research, homicide clearance rates have steadily declined in the U.S. over the last half-century. In this first of a two-part series, we’ll examine the factors that have contributed to the increasing numbers of unsolved cases across the country. And in the conclusion of our examination of cold cases, we’ll discuss how homicide investigators have begun to effectively employ TIME to their advantage in resolving cases that were long considered unsolvable.

Nine: The Passage of Time

EWith the passage of time comes changes in the dynamics in the way people think and in their personal relationships. They still may be reluctant to walk into a police station or to call the police BUT in some cases, "all it takes is for an investigator to take the initiative and knock on their door." The main thrust of this episode is to communicate that a COLD CASE doesn't mean it's a DEAD CASE. There is ALWAYS hope and each one of us can do his or her part in helping to solve Richard's case.
