The Prime Suspect: Fred Lam

In this episode of our true crime podcast, we delve into the mysterious murder case of Shelley Wiley. Detective Robert Terry has recently identified Fred Lam as the prime suspect in this chilling crime. Terry's breakthrough came when he discovered that Lam's DNA matched the DNA found at the crime scene.

Surprisingly, Lam had been interviewed by the police back in 1985 but was never thoroughly investigated. Now, with this new evidence, the case has been reopened, and the police are determined to find a new prosecutor who will take it to trial.

However, not everyone is convinced of Lam's guilt. Defense attorney Vaughn Newbauer firmly believes in his client's innocence and points to another suspect, Larry Montez. Newbauer argues that the police unfairly focused on African-American males as potential suspects due to rumors about Shelley Wiley's relationships.

To shed light on this complex case, Newbauer provides our reporter with the entire case file, including police and lab reports, for review. Join us as we examine the evidence, interview key figures, and explore the twists and turns of this ongoing investigation.
