Column: Hearing the details of true-crime first hand

The weather outside is awful. My electric bill has doubled. So since there’s no place to go, let’s watch some shows and episodes while it snows.

I, like many other Hoosiers, have been hunkered down indoors over the past two weeks. I’ve played board games, baked brownies and read books, but most of all, I have gotten my money’s worth of Netflix shows.

After Christmas, Scott and I got on an NBC “Dateline” binge thanks to our Roku streaming device that lets me watch old television episodes. I think what really draws me into all of the true-crime shows is the fact that they’re real. Sure, it’s mediated and framed to look a certain way, but the people are real and their stories are too tragic to be made up.

That’s another reason why I love journalism — sometimes reality is harder to believe than fiction. I’ve written several stories about people or

Amid ‘Free Lamonte’ chants, hearing begins in case of KCK man imprisoned for 23 years

On the day Lamonte McIntyre was sentenced to consecutive life terms in prison, he said just 13 words to the court:

“Judge, I would like to tell the court that I’m innocent. That’s all.”

On Thursday, more than two decades later, McIntyre’s family and friends poured into a Wyandotte County courtroom for a hearing that has called into question the imprisonment of a 17-year-old man.

McIntyre, now 41, smiled at the approximately 50 friends and relatives who had assembled in the courtroom.

An innocent man has languished in prison for 23 years, his loved ones say. In a rally outside the courthouse beforehand, they cried: “I say free, you say Lamonte.”

“Free!”

“Lamonte!”

New Hearing Date In Connection With Joyce Stochmal Murder

By Jack Kramer, Correspondent

A hearing on whether the family of a teenager brutally murdered in 1984 could receive the killer’s prison records has been rescheduled for Monday, Sept. 18th. The sister of a teenager who was brutally murdered in 1984 was slated to be in front of the state’s Freedom of Information Commission last week, seeking to get the correctional and disciplinary history of the man convicted of the crime.

But Marianne Stochmal Heffernan said she asked for a postponement when she found out that the murderer’s attorney had submitted a new memo to the FOI in the case.

Heffernan said she felt she didn’t have ample time to review the memo before the FOI hearing, so she asked for the postponement.

“I felt I would likely need time to read the memo, research anything I may not know or understand, and prepare to defend against it,” Heffernan.

Weinberg’s attorney, acknowledging Heffernan’s need to
