Something Wicked: The Murders of Susan, Karen, & Michael Reinert

In Episode 312

Susan Reinert was an English teacher at Upper Merion Area High School in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, when she began dating fellow English teacher William Bradfield.  Bradfield was charismatic.  In fact, Susan left her husband to carry on a secret relationship with him.

On June 25, 1989, Susan’s naked body was found in her car in a hotel parking lot near Philadelphia’s “Main Line” and her two children, Karen and Michael, were nowhere to be found.  An investigation by state police and the FBI centered on William Bradfield and the school principal Dr. John Smith, who would be revealed as a sadist with a passion for pornography, illicit drugs, and violence.

Join us at the quiet end for Something Wicked. It’s been 30 years since William Bradfield and Dr. John Smith were exposed as cruel and deviant men, but this is a case that never fails to fascinate or invite debate.
