True Crime Tuesday presents Jimmy The King: Murder, Vice, and the Reign of a Dirty Cop with Investigative Reporter/Author, Gus Garcia-Roberts!
In 1979, the gruesome slaying of a thirteen-year-old boy riveted the suburbs of Suffolk County, New York. As the county hustled to bring the case to a dubious resolution, a wayward local teenager emerged with a convenient story to tell. For his cooperation, Jimmy Burke was rewarded with a job as a cop.
Thus began Burke’s unlikely ascent to the top of one of the country’s largest law enforcement jurisdictions. He and a crew of likeminded allies utilized vengeance, gangster tactics, and political leverage to become the most powerful and feared figures in their suburban empire.
Until a pilfered bag of sex toys brought it all crashing down.
Gus Garcia-Roberts joins TCT to talk about the case that started it all for Jimmy Burke and the eventual downfall of Jimmy The King, in this must hear podcast!
