    And The Jailer’s Wife’s Betrayal

    Episode 330 is the exciting story of the Biddle Brothers of Pittsburgh, whose ransack of a humble home turns to homicide, and leads to a line-of-duty death of one of the city’s beloved officers. I was well into recording this episode before I realized that there was a movie based on this story. I’ve got a prize ready for the first person to contact me via email or social media with the name of the actress who played the jailer’s wife.

    Culled from the historic pages of the Pittsburgh Press, the Pittsburgh Daily Post and other newspapers of the era.
