There are more than 250,000 unsolved murders across the United States and each one of those cases has left family and friends with no answers about who killed their loved ones. American Military University presents Break the Case, an investigative podcast that follows AMU’s Cold Case Team along their journey to solve a cold case for one of those families.

Debbie Sue Williamson was married less than three months before her murder.

In this season of Break the Case, the team investigates the 46-year-old unsolved murder of Debbie Sue Williamson. In the first episode, learn about Debbie’s brutal murder in her own backyard in 1975 in Lubbock, Texas. Hear from her sister, Liz Flatt, who shares her memories of Debbie, the months leading up to her murder, and the day her sister was killed. Also hear from Debbie’s widower, Doug Williamson, who was married to Debbie for less than three months before he found her stabbed to death 17 times near the back step of their home.

Follow this season of Break the Case, featuring AMU criminal justice and forensic science professor, Jen Bucholtz, and investigative journalist and award-winning true-crime author, George Jared, as they team up to “Break the Case” for the family of Debbie Sue Williamson.
