John Robert Williams may be the most disturbed, cold hearted killer Phil has encountered in his 30 year career. With a life of crime and murder in his past, Williams sits in a Mississippi prison for the murder of only one victim. The authorities are aware he has killed at least 10 more victims and is a key suspect in numerous open cold cases, but they are happy to have him off the streets for life.

Williams was arrested, along with his girlfriend, in 2005, after a year-long investigation by local and federal authorities into a string of cross-country murders. In this episode, John Williams speaks with Phil on a contraband cell phone that he had smuggled into prison.

Dellmus “Heavy” Colvin terrorized America’s highways from coast to coast as a lady-killing long-haul trucker, drug dealer, and truck-stop pimp. Most of Colvin’s victims were drug-addicted prostitutes that he first strangled in the cab of his big-rig truck, then transported and dumped their bodies in rural, wooded areas between destinations. The cold-blooded killer strangled one victim at an Arkansas truck stop because she knocked on the door of the truck while he was sleeping. He immediately grabbed her by the neck, strangled her, stowed her away in his truck, then later dumped her clothing in Idaho and her body in Nebraska. He was arrested in 2005 after a friend witnessed Colvin wrapping a body in a sheet and notified police. Colvin claims he murdered between 47 and 52 women between 1983 and 2005. He is serving several life sentences in Ohio for the murder of seven women, with several other cases pending. In this episode, Colvin will be telling the actual location of a body buried in the woods outside a truck stop. He has also contracted Covid-19 and desperately begs for Phil's help.
