Introducing: Murder in Oregon

Friday, 1 November

Introducing a brand new iHeartRadio Original Podcast: Murder in Oregon. In January of 1989 the director of Oregon’s Department of Corrections, Michael Francke, was brutally stabbed to death outside his office in Salem. His murder was quickly ruled a “car burglary gone wrong” and pinned on a low-level drug dealer named Frank Gable, a man who Francke's own brother, Kevin, along with storied Oregon reporter Phil Stanford, believe has been wrongfully imprisoned for nearly 30 years. They contend Francke had uncovered a dangerous trail of corruption in the prison system— one that lead to the top of Oregon’s political establishment. Murder In Oregon follows the two men on a decades-long quest, bordering on obsession, into Oregon’s drug and crime-infested underbelly to answer one question: Who really killed Michael Francke?  Murder in Oregon is now available.
