On May 1, 1990, Pamela Smart came home from a work meeting to find her condominium ransacked and her husband, Gregg, dead and bleeding on the floor. Police initially said that the crime scene looked like an interrupted burglary. Later, it was determined that Pamela Smart seduced 15-year-old Billy Flynn and threatened to stop having sex with him unless he killed her husband. Flynn killed Gregg with the help of his friends Pete Randall, J.R. Lattime, and Raymond Fowler. Billy shot Greggory Smart as Randall held him down, while Lattime, the driver, waited in the getaway car outside with Fowler.
During the investigation, J.R. Lattime’s father brought his .38 caliber pistol he had found freshly cleaned in his house to the police, believing it might have been the murder weapon. An anonymous tip also indicated that a teenager named Cecilia Pierce was aware of the murder plot.
That was 26 years ago. Join us as we go over the horrible crime, the sensational trial, and what has happened in the years since Pam’s conviction.
