This episode Joe talks to the host and researcher behind the Circle City Crime Podcast. His podcast focuses on the 1879 murders of four fast-food restaurant workers who were abducted in Marion County but murdered in Johnson County. We go over some of the main details but suggest you listen to the 3C podcast to get the full details. Both Infamous Indy and the 3C podcast are part of Central State Studios.
There are lots of specific theories that have been floated in the Westside Park Murders over the years, but we feel it important to discuss, and eliminate if possible, categories of theories for people who are less familiar with this case. In this episode we go over the ideas that the Westside Park Murders were the act of a serial killer or simple a random thrill kill.
Clues released to public in the case of the Westside Park Murders are sparse, but each one may carry a wealth of information so listen closely as go over each one in this week’s episode.

Things like this just don’t happen in Muncie, but in the late hours of Saturday September 28, 1985, the lives of Kimberly Dowell and Ethan Dixon were tragically and senselessly taken as they sat in the city’s Westside Park, the same as dozens of other teens who went home safely that night. The city itself is as big a character in this story as any person…so we present to you Muncie, Indiana.
We’ve embarked on the journey for truth in another of Indiana’s most tragic and senseless unsolved homicides. Two young people, Ethan Dixon and Kimberly Dowell, were gunned down on Saturday, September 28, 1985 in Muncie’s Westside Park. Lots of people from Muncie will tell you they know who did it, but they haven’t all settled on a single suspect. We’ll go down all the rabbit holes in pursuit of one thing…the truth.
