Sometime between the evening of March 31st and noon on April 1st, 1999 , Yvonne Layne was brutally murdered inside of her Alliance, OH home.  This was no April fool's joke for the 5 children Yvonne left behind.  The real fools though were the Alliance, OH police department.  Could one of their own officers have been a prime suspect?  Did he a vested interest in seeing Yvonne killed?  Such names as Cheech Marin from Cheech and Chong and The King of Pop Michael Jackson were entertained during the investigation.  David Thorne was arrested and later convicted of Yvonne's murder.  David was dad number 4 of 5.  Police had no DNA, no eye witness, no motive, they even sought the help of a so called physic who also pointed the finger at someone else.  The only "evidence" police had was a coerced confession of a mentally challenged "hit man" who could not give any facts of the murder and gave contradicting statements during his interviews.  Tune in this Wednesday as we discuss the David Thorne case.
