John McRae's committed his first murder when he was only 15. He murdered an 8-year-old boy in his neighborhood. He was convicted of the murder and sent away to prison for life. It was thought that, after 20 years, he was rehabilitated and he was set free. That decision would prove disastrous.

Join Mike and Gibby as they discuss the life and crimes of John McCrae. John went on to commit additional crimes, some for which he was ultimately convicted. He is thought to be responsible for a number of disappearances of young boys in Florida. There are many years where John seemingly committed no crimes. Is that possible for a predator like McRae? Or, was he just able to get away with his crimes and stay off police radar?
