This week on The Coroner: I Speak for the Dead, the case of Dale Orwan who was stabbed 17 times in a frenzied attack.
April 2001 in Hummelstown, Pa., and coroner Hetrick is called to the scene a bloody murder. The body of Orwan is found partially clothed in his own home, he’s been stabbed 17 times.
The only real suspect is a red headed woman whose clothes were found at the scene. Is it a crime of passion, a planned murder or a robbery gone wrong?
Later 33-year-old Van Alsobrook and 40-year-old Mary Bergere would plead guilty to murder and conspiracy to commit murder, but the path to that result is a fascinating one.
Hetrick explains how his investigation helped prove who committed the murder and allowed police to arrest the perpetrators.
The Coroner: I Speak for the Dead airs Mondays at 10:00 P.M. on Investigation Discovery.
