Conversations with Karen – the recent Jack the Ripper news

008 Investigators Hotline



During this Investigators Hotline, your host Rory McMahon speaks with Danny Waxler, one of his original students and investigators who worked for him before he (Danny) opened up his own private investigative business in his home state of Texas.   This interview was conducted in Austin, TX during the first week in September at Danny’s home.

Danny speaks about his 18 years in the business and the many different experiences he has had over the years.



During this show I’m joined by Dennis Root who was retained as the investigator during the well-publicized George Zimmerman case. Dennis will discuss how the media influences public perception, as well as the obstacles that must be overcome to ensure justice is served.  Providing expert testimony in court requires a complete understanding of case facts. One must also have the ability to relate those facts to a group of individuals who may not have a frame of reference enabling them to easily understand the complexities of the case. Dennis also points out the importance of a thorough discovery review and the development of case time lines. Additionally, we discuss the importance of remaining neutral while making diligent efforts to view case information from multiple perspectives.

We also spend sometime discussing a great non-profit organization dedicated to offering FREE personal safety and crime prevention programs for all ages. As a non-profit, Dennis depends on the support of our community to ensure safety remains free for everyone. Please visit the Dennis Root Public Safety Foundation, Inc. to find out more about this program.
