Killers don’t wear name tags telling us who they are. They look like everybody else. They are fathers, brothers, neighbors, carpenters, doctors, men, or women. On an upper class suburban street in Kansas City, at 7517 Canterbury Court, Dr. Debora Green and her husband, Dr. Michael Farrar, lived with their 3 children. It was a beautiful home where the children were provided with every advantage. Michael made a generous salary as a Cardiologist; Debora was a full-time mother. This was the image of the perfect family.
When the family’s home became engulfed in flames on October 23, 1995, Debora was barely able to escape the fire. Tragically, two of her children perished in the fire. When the fire was determined to be caused by arson, police were looking for a murderer. But they were searching for a murderer from a pool of people who seemed very unlikely to be murderers and it seemed unimaginable that anyone would have wanted to kill 2 innocent children. What was uncovered in the investigation that followed would shock the community and invite speculation from all over the world.
Join us at the quiet end today as we relive the lives of an outwardly successful couple, following the twists and turns marked by love, fraud, addiction, infidelity, madness, attempted murder, and, finally, murder. In this episode of True Crime Brewery: First, Do No Harm.
