View two documentaries by Mark Wade Stone of StoryWorks.TV with comments by true crime author James Jessen Badal. The Day Marilyn Died (2008, 28 minutes) examines the infamous Sam Sheppard case of 1954. Did he or didn’t he? Dr. Sheppard told a wholly preposterous story about the savage bludgeoning of his wife, Marilyn, by an intruder, but the evidence pointed to the doctor.  The Fourteenth Victim (2003, 79 minutes) chronicles the 1930s era of Eliot Ness (pictured on the left) as the Safety Director of the City of Cleveland and his pursuit of the Torso Murderer of Kingsbury Run. The films were produced in cooperation with the Cleveland Police Historical Society and Museum, Inc. who is sponsoring this benefit.  For more information, go to TRUE CRIME CLEVELAND
