Fatal Vision: The Jeffrey MacDonald Case

In Episode 194

On February 17, 1970, in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, some of the most shocking murders in modern history took place. Colette MacDonald and her two young daughters were brutally murdered in their home on the base. Colette’s husband, Jeffrey MacDonald, was left wounded but he was still very much alive and well. This family massacre has fascinated and outraged people for nearly 50 years.

At the heart of this case is the relationship of a pregnant young mother with her ambitious husband, along with the character and behavior of a man believed to be either a monster or a gentleman, depending on who you’re talking to.

Jeffrey MacDonald has a version of what happened that night. Investigators and prosecutors have another version, backed up by what they see as blatant inconsistencies in his story and in the evidence.

Today’s episode will address the relationship of Jeffrey with his wife Colette, the timeline and the evidence, as well as Jeffrey MacDonald’s behavior both before and after his family was slaughtered. Did Jeffrey MacDonald brutally murder his family or was he a victim of a Manson-like gang? Join us at the quiet end for Fatal Vision: The Jeffrey MacDonald Case.
