Today in Crime History: Serial killer passes a polygraph

On December 18, 1990, suspected serial killer Larry Eyler took a lie detector test and passed. He also pleaded not guilty to murder, but eventually ended up confessing to killing 21 people. He died of AIDS while in prison.

Tennis Official’s Defense Goes on the Offensive

The tennis official accused of murder came out swinging this week as the defense team for Lois Goodman announced a former FBI polygraph expert tested her and concluded that she truthfully denied responsibility for the death of her husband Alan. Goodman, who was arrested in New York City just before the start of the US Open tennis tournament in which she was to serve as referee, has since been extradited to Los Angeles and freed on bail. She is confined to the Woodland Hills home where her husband Alan was found dead back in April.
