People with information about Beth Andes and the events surrounding her slaying continue to come forward months after the initial season ended.

Chapter 7: The evidence

9/26/2016
More
If Bob Young killed his girlfriend, he couldn’t be tried again, so holding onto the physical evidence in the case would be moot. In America, you can’t be charged twice for the same crime. But what if he’s innocent? In this episode of Accused, The Enquirer outlines its year-long quest to answer that question.

Chapter 5: If not Bob, who? - Part 2

9/19/2016

Elizabeth Andes' friends and family don't point fingers when asked who they think might have killed the bubbly 23-year-old Dec. 28, 1978. But they worry that police zeroed in on Andes' boyfriend so quickly that authorities might have missed other worthwhile leads. Boyd Glascock was a quirky and artistic man who inserted himself into the murder investigation by showing up uninvited to boyfriend Bob Young’s house after Young had been arrested. Glascock professed his love for Young and then...

9/7/2016

As Oxford police began investigating the city’s first murder in a quarter-century, detectives bolstered their case against the victim’s boyfriend. But did cops’ theory on motive line up with what Beth’s friends knew about the couple? Bob Young had no prior criminal record, and no one at trial testified he had even a slight temper, much less a murderous one. Despite this, police records indicate that investigators didn’t give much weight to the men in Beth’s life that her friends say...
