Season 4 – Episode 4: The Murder of Arnold Holmes

In the last episode, I continue my conversation with Brett Holmes, Arnold’s cousin, who’s also the law enforcement officer I worked with on this case. We discuss Detective Pratt, as well as another case (that of Janette Roberson, my second season) and I give the final summation of what we learned about why this case is where it is, as well as the issues surrounding that gun.
