In this teaser of the newest Archangels of Justice Case Files series, we will be introducing the story of Laurie “Bambi” Bembenek. A case that gained national headlines after she escaped from prison and was recaptured in Canada, inspiring books, movies and the even the slogan “Run, Bambi, Run”.
On May 28th, 1981 Christine Schultz, the mother of two boys and the ex-wife of a police detective, was murdered in her home in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Less than a year later, on March 9th, 1982, Laurie Bembenek was convicted of that murder and immediately sentenced to a life term in prison. This season will be done from the perspective of Archangel of Justice Investigator, Ira Robins who worked this case for over two decades. And who Laurie called her “very own personal Pit-bull” and when Geraldo Rivera devoted a show on the case, said Ira “has made Bambi’s vindication his life’s mission”. But now our listeners will get the full story, as the Archangels will take your through the twists and turns of Ira’s investigation and show how official misconduct and corruption, in all areas of state law enforcement and the courts, tainted the Laurie Bembenek case to cause a horrible miscarriage of justice.
