On Sept. 15, 2010, a 55-year-old Oil man named Greg Fleniken checked into room 348 at the Elegante Hotel in Beaumont, Texas.... he never checked out. Hours later, Beaumont police found 55-year-old dead on the floor, with the television still on, the air conditioner off, and more than $1,000 of Fleniken's cash still in the room. Candy bars, soda, and cigarettes were near the bed.
At first, police believed a heart attack was the cause of death but the truth was more sinister. Listen to the newest Murder Monday and for more info about the case that I could fit into this episode, check out this article from Vanity Fair.
