Pete and I are excited to be interviewing Mike King later today for our next episode of In the Chill of the Night. Mike leveraged his 40 years of investigative experience, to uncover the details surrounding Jane McKechnie’s untimely death. Jane was a true pioneer in efforts to tame the west. She made the incredible journeys across the Atlantic Ocean and up the Mississippi River to settle in Utah. She survived the Hole in the Rock expedition, faced threatening frontier Indians, only to be killed for being a peacemaker in her town.
Mike brings today's investigative insights (forensics, ballistics, investigative logic) to a yesterday crime. After reading his book on the the story, I can't wait to get the behind the scenes to share with you.
Mike is the creator and host of Profiling Evil. He retired from the Department of Public Safety after a distinguished law enforcement career, including service as Chief of Staff to Utah Attorney General Jan Graham. He was also the Director of UTAP (Utah Criminal Tracking and Analysis Program) guiding their mission to investigate and facilitate collaboration on unsolved homicides, sexual assaults and missing persons. His service includes; Chief of Staff to the Weber County Attorney and a police officer for the city of Ogden, Utah.
Looking forward to publishing this cast for you in the next few days so you can hear the behind the scenes of the circumstances leading up to his discoveries that are outlined in his new book She Knew No Fear:
