The Murder of David Carter

In October of 2018, David Carter was reported missing by his family. He was later found dismembered along a highway 100 miles away from his home. It didn’t take police long to look into his girlfriend, Tammy Williams, but by the time they had enough evidence to charge her, she had gone on the run. She is currently the only female on the U.S. Marshals' top 15 Most Wanted Fugitive List. Tamera “Tammy” Renee Williams is 5’5 and weighs about 190 pounds. She has a large rose tattoo running from her shoulder down her left arm and may have blonde or black hair. She is an experienced world traveler and has relatives in Atlanta and New York. Tammy Williams should be considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information about Tammy Williams’ whereabouts is urged to contact the U.S. Marshals 24-hour tip line at 1-877-WANTED2 or send information via the USMS Tips App. Thank you to this week’s sponsors!

Listen Now - Exposed: Cover-Up at Columbia University

Feed Drop Description: Dr. Robert Hadden was a trusted OB-GYN at Columbia University. Friendly, caring, unassuming… and behind the closed door of exam rooms, one of the most prolific sexual predators in New York City. During his 25-year career, he assaulted hundreds, perhaps thousands, of patients, under the guise of medical exams. Those who tried to warn Columbia were ignored or not believed. When it appeared that no one — not Hadden, not Columbia — would be held to account, it was the survivors who undertook a decade-long fight for justice. From Wondery, Exposed: Cover-Up at Columbia University is a story about power: who has it, who loses it, and what it takes to get it back. Follow Exposed on Amazon Music or wherever you get your podcasts. You can listen ad-free by subscribing to Wondery Plus in Apple Podcasts or the Wondery app. Listen to Exposed: Wondery.fm/MM_EXPOSED Learn more about your ad choices.
