The furniture was gone. Within hours, police realised that Jerry's live-in housekeeper, Barbara Opel, had robbed him and fled. But where was Jerry?The next morning, Opel's 11-year-old son led police to Jerry's body. Soon, stunned detectives were getting confessions from a rage tag group of teens and pre-teens. At Barbara Opel's command, they had set upon Jerry Heimann with knives, fists, and baseball bats - and battered him to death.From 13-year-old Heather, who frantically stabbed Jerry after having sex with her boyfriend, to 7-year-old Tiffany, who helped clean up the blood, this is the horrifying true story of how a mother turned her children and their friends into stone cold killers - and then rewarded them for their crime...MOM SAID KILL-Burl Barer

In the mid-to-late 1980's, a quiet neighborhood near Tacoma, Washington was terrorized by the violence of three men: Paul St. Pierre, an alcoholic psychopath; his younger brother, Chris, who had committed unspeakable acts to be one of the boys; and Paul's childhood friend, druggie Andrew Webb.
The three beat up one man before cutting his throat on a deserted beach. They decapitated another victim, whom Paul St. Pierre had killed, and buried his head in a bucket of concrete. Soon, the twisted triad turned on each other. St. Pierre shot Andrew Webb in the stomach during an argument. Chris St. Pierre called the cops. He and Webb, who survived his attack, were sentenced to life in prison. Paul St. Pierre choked to death alone in his jail cell. HEAD SHOT-Burl Barer

Not since the Green River Killer had the Pacific Northwest been terrorized by so savage a serial killer. By day, Robert Lee Yates, Jr., 48 was a respected father of five, a skilled helicopter pilot who served in Desert Storm and the National Guard, and a man no one suspected of a deadly hidden life. By night he prowled the streets where prostitutes gathered, gaining their trust before betraying them with a bullet to the head. On August 26, 1997, the half-naked body of 16-year-old street prostitute Jennifer Joseph was found in an empty lot in Spokane, Washington. The same day, the decomposed corpse of prostitute Heather Hernandez, 20, was discovered in a wheat field. Both women had been shot point blank in the head. By the day after Christmas, four more women were added to the mounting death toll. All were found with plastic grocery bags tied over their heads - the gruesome signature of a killer who had sexually violated each one of them after snuffing out their lives. Spokane's elite Homicide Task Force's intense investigation turned up only one common link: a white Corvette driven by a frequent customer of Spokane's prostitutes. Investigators found a button from Jennifer Joseph's blouse and multiple blood stains in a vehicle recently sold by Yates Jr. On October 18, 2000, Yates pled guilty to 13 murders and was sentenced to 408 years. Sentenced for two similar murders in Washington's Pierce County, Yates is now on death row, awaiting execution. BODY COUNT-RE-RELEASE-Burl Barer

ENVISION THIS: "Walking the Walk" on the Internet, using cloud-based applications and virtual architecture in an innovative, green, sustainable way
Our guest, Art Johnson, CEO of New World Communications says, "Once people start meeting online "walking the walk" and getting comfortable with it, they undergo a kind of epiphany, realizing that approaching the world the same old physical world way is 'not as good as it gets. "
New World Communications serves local, regional, national and international clientele from the smallest micro-business to the largest nation-state. Art asks us to “Imagine how much better the world would be using New Google + Video Hangouts.” Yes, he has something to “sell”, but, for once, it may be a product visionaries of a more resilient, inclusive, Earth-friendly future might want to increase the range of their message. Imagine being able to link the real world to the virtual world, creating a “hybrid world” where “You can "virtualize" and live-stream physical world happenings with people at one end-point to people at multiple other end-points, locally, regionally and across the planet.”
In his Critical Conversations for the 21st Century available on You-Tube, Art interviews folks with important visions to share, just as we do here on Envision This! His interviews have the advantage of being visible as well as audible, even when the conversation is taking place long distance. How cool is that? He is even going to interview your hosts, Merry and Burl Hall, on Sunday, May 4th at 11:30 AM EDT.
ENVISION THIS: Sustainability has to be THE mission of education across the curriculum.
Our guest, Dr. Stephen Mulkey is president of Unity College, the first college in the U.S. to divest from investments in fossil fuels. Through his leadership the college developed its central focus on sustainability science, the leading-edge of transdisciplinary 21st century environmental problem solving. A climate change scientist with study and publishing spanning over three decades, he has pursued research in Eastern Amazonia, Central Panama, and East Africa. He holds a bachelor's degree in fisheries and wildlife, a master's degree in ecology, and earned his doctorate's degree in ecology from the University of Pennsylvania.
Stephen left his position as a climate change scientist to become Unity College president because he was so impressed with its mission: “Through the framework of sustainability science, Unity College provides a liberal arts education that emphasizes the environment and natural resources. Through experiential and collaborative learning, our graduates emerge as responsible citizens, environmental stewards, and visionary leaders.” Unity is the first American college to create a passive powered residence hall for students, Terra Haus, that meets European standards.
Merry and Burl, your ENVISION THIS co-hosts, heard Stephen’s Keynote Address at the 2014 Climate Solutions Expo & Summit in Augusta. We were so impressed with his profound ethical commitment to preparing our youth to become leaders in mitigating and adapting to climate change that we have invited him to share his vision, mission, and passion with you.
Ever been to Africa? Or, watched classic movie "The African Queen"? How about ''Out of Africa"? This week, I did all three at once, because I met Gina Gee, a beautiful woman with a TBI from South Africa who was a professional horse trainer/rider until a 'wild', or, 'terrorist' horse (as Gina referred) toppled on her head one afternoon 4 years ago. A darling, extremely understandable BI Survivor she is, and you will see why. She needs a few words from other Survivors, as unfortunately, she has , none. Except us for now. Listen, hear, burl up, probably saddle up too! Its quite a ride. She stayed up very late for this show, let's not disappoint her or OUR South African 'family' members with words of encouragment and assistance. Seems, they have none. An absolute Angel with wings, travel with me.
Dr. Kevin Butterfield often travels with me, and jumped off the plane as well. NeuroFeedBack is a knowledgeable request, and yes, it came "Out of Africa". Of course, we will Race4Time!!!! Trauma Sports Director Dr. Butt said we are.
Mr. Jake Patrick, Sports Director of RHI Sports, will stop by early to give up dates on next weeks Sports Gala - it ROCKS so much. Yep, Tammy and I will be there. Speaking of Tammy D'ercole, my "current" Co-Host, special friend and fellow Traumatic Life Survivor joins us all night long. Yes, all night - my style! Working on perhaps her own offering on BrainInjuryRadio shows, Tammy brings so much to the table. She will bring her thoughts, ideas and I'm hoping some she brings is fresh food...
If our darling Belinda checks in, we will be around the world in 180 Minutes!
On August 26, 1997, the half-naked body of prostitute Heather Hernandez, 20 was found in an empty lot in Spokane Washington. The same day, the decomposed corpse of prostitute Jennifer Joseph, 16, was discovered in an alfalfa field. Both women had been shot in the head.
The day after Christmas, four more women were found with plastic bags tied over their heads, the gruesome signature of a killer who had sexually violated each one of them, after they had died.
Police had only one good lead, a driver in a white Corvette who picked up prostitutes on the street.
When the killer is finally arrested he turns out to be a devoted husband, a father of five, a National Guard helicopter pilot and a Desert Storm veteran. Not since the Green River Killer had the Pacific Northwest been so terrorized by so savage a serial killer. Robert Lee Yates Jr. is charged for 13 murders.
