Episode 7: The Case of Max Soffar
On July 13, 1980, Houston fell victim to one of the most heinous triple homicides it had seen in years. Three teenagers and a man in his young twenties were shot execution style after shutting down the bowling alley where they worked. After months of frustration about not being able to arrest the person who committed this crime, the police caught a break: they pulled a man over who eventually confessed to them that he had committed the crime. Take a listen as we explore a case where personal lines between police and suspects are crossed, pressure to solve a crime brings investigators to the brink, and the grey area between truth and lies ultimately turns this into a mystery that would last decades.
