April 16, 2003. Bernie, TX. A maroon car speeding along interstate 10 suddenly begins to drive erratically, spinning out of control, finally coming to a stop after hitting a tree. The victim, 54 year-old Airforce Colonel & Psychiatrist Philip Michael Shue is dead. He had left two-and-a-half hours earlier for work, but never arrived. His death and the subsequent investigation would raise more questions than answers. Upon examination, Colonel Shue appears to have been bound and tortured. Duct tape is found on his wrists and ankles, both of his nipples have been cut off and the tip of his left pinky is missing. What happened to cause the fatal crash? Was Colonel Philip Shue’s death an accident, or murder? You are listening to Murdercast.
