Intimate Partner Homicide-Sheryl McCollum, Holly Hughes, Susan Murphy Milano Live 9:00 PM Monday August 16, 2010

By Sheryl McCollum, Holly Hughes, Susan Murphy Milano

Tonight IPHI and features the cold cases of Michael Tapley and Matthew Houbrick

In February of 2008, Michael Tapley and his wife Gina disappeared from Navajo County, AZ. On March 8, 2008, Gina Tapley returned to Arizona, but, without Michael. Her excuse according to police reports is that she dropped him off at the front door of a gambling casino in Missouri. We were contacted by Michael Tapley’s sister Kim who resides in Washington. During our investigation we learned that Gina Tapley was married prior to Michael. Her former husband had secured two orders of protection against Gina. And in the divorce she lost custody of her children. Michael Tapley also filed with the courts for an order of protection but later dropped the charges. Both men sited almost the exact same language in their petitions Gina is “violent, dangerous, and threatened to kill me”. Police did not investigate the case, believing Gina Tapley a pretty, petite woman who provide a convincing story line. Since our involvement both CID of the Arizona State Police and Navajo County Sheriff have been inundated with calls and emails asking the status of the investigation.

Television producer, Matthew Houbrick , was found dead at the Drake Hotel in Chicago on November 14, 2005. He was in Chicago working on the FOX TV series Prison Break. His death made world-wide headlines, but the truth of what really happened; how he died, why Chicago Police failed to properly investigate, has been silenced. Joining us on the show to discuss the facts in the case, as he knows them, is Michael Houbrick, identical twin brother of the deceased.

Your hosts Holly Hughes former Atlanta Prosecutor turned defense attorney, Sheryl McCollum, Director of Cold Case Investigative Research Institute and Susan Murphy-Milano, Violence Expert and Author of the new book "Time's Up" have joined forces to bring new eyes to cases of intimate partner homicide. Intimate Partner Homicide Investigation gives these cases a front and center seat instead of a back door crime occurring behind closed doors.
