John Mahon Knows You Are Lying

dru | photography | http://facebook.com/druphoto

Unlike you and I, Sergeant John Mahon is lied to by professional liars. He has worked for the Bexar County Sheriff's department for 23 years. And while you and I are lied to by advertisements and dressing rooms with soft lighting and mirrors that obviously make us look thinner, he is lied to by murderers. 

He spent eight years in the county's homicide unit. He walks us through the many lies that came out of one case. Starting from a headless body, he and the county pieced together a murder case. But would they be able to capture all the bad guys?

Worth Repeating is Texas Public Radio's live, storytelling event series that looks to bring the Sound of San Antonio out through the stories of your friends and neighbors.
