Blood & Oil
In Centerville, Texas, a 911 operator receives an odd call from a man named Gerald Wilhelm. In a strangely calm voice, he reports that he just woke up from a nap and found his wife, Janice, dead in a pool of blood, in the same room where he was napping. Gerald claims she must have taken her own life by shooting herself in the neck and mentions that she was depressed and had medical problems. Local law enforcement quickly rules Janice’s death a suicide. However, Janice’s children, Wayne and Jennifer, can find no physical evidence to support that ruling and maintain that their mother was murdered. They believe their mother’s death has something to do with her oil rich farmhouse property.

UPDATE: In September 2022, Wayne Robeson was found dead in his home. Though some speculate a professional hit, the investigation into his death is ongoing, and as of yet no official connection has been made between his death and the death of Janice Wilhelm.SUBMIT A TIP
