Episode #31: The Murder of the Gee Family

Summary of the Case:

The Gee House

On September 21st, 2009, five members of the Gee family would be brutally murdered: 46-year-old Rick and 39-year-old Ruth Gee, 16-year-old Justina Constant, 14-year-old Dillen Constant, and 11-year-old Austin Gee. 3-year-old Tabitha Gee was brutally attacked as well, but would survive her attack. A laptop was missing from the home, leading investigators to wonder if the attack had been a robbery gone wrong. The oldest member of the Gee family, Nicole, had not been attacked, because she did not live in the Gee home. Police were suspicious of her husband Christopher, in part because he wore the same shoes as a shoe print found at the scene. Soon more evidence would be discovered that pointed to Christopher: a handprint at the scene that matched Christopher, that was in the blood of the victims. Christopher, and his brother Jason, who had been his alibi for the night, were both arrested on suspicion of murder.

The Trial began in 2012. Jason had taken a deal for 20 years in exchange for testifying against his brother. The prosecution accused Christopher of going to the house that night to attempt to have sex with 16-year-old Justina, things got violent, and he murdered the entire family. The defense would have a shocking alternate theory. They claimed that 14-year-old Dillen was a troubled and violent teen, and he had murdered his family that night. They claimed Christopher showed up at the wrong time and Dillen tried to kill him too. Christopher had to murder Dillen in self-defense. Jason testified against his brother, and his testimony did not help Christopher’s claims. The jury ruled against Christopher, finding him guilty for the murders and attempted murder of the surviving child.
