Former FBI assistant director Chris Swecker weighed in on two stories dominating the crime headlines on Monday’s Bo Thompson Morning Show.

The first being the disappearance of Gabby Petito, which has now sadly turned into a murder investigation. The 22-year-old New Yorker was found dead over the weekend in a remote part of Wyoming outside of the Bridger-Teton National Forest. Many believe her ex-fiance, Brian Laundrie, was involved with her disappearance and eventual killing. The FBI conducted a search of Laundrie’s house in Florida on Monday after Petito’s body was found.

Another story making the rounds hits too close to home for many. Alex Murdaugh, a South Carolina lawyer whose wife and son were killed in a double-murder back in June, was arrested last week in connection to an insurance fraud scheme in which involved Murdaugh arranging to be killed, so his surviving son could collect on a multi-million dollar life insurance policy.
