"Criminal Confessions" spotlights Waterloo murder investigation

KWWL –

The Oxygen network t.v. show “Criminal Confessions” is taking a closer look at a double murder that happened in Waterloo ten years ago. 

The episode, “An Informant,” revolves around the Waterloo Police Department’s work in solving the case. 

Both Ronald Scullark Junior and Annisa Schroeder were shot and killed in broad daylight in November 2007. 

The shows producers came to Waterloo this past spring to interview Waterloo Police Investigators who worked on the case. Investigator Lynn Moller, who’s now retired, remembers the case standing out from the ones he’s worked on in his 35 years at the department. 

“It wasn’t in the East side of Waterloo in an alley at 3:30 in the morning,” said Moller. “So that’s what set it apart-the wheres and the whens and broad daylight. It was a beautiful sunshine day in November. Cold, but it was

Oxygen’s Rod Aissa Talks ‘Criminal Confessions’ and the Network’s Transition to ‘Full Time True Crime’

When Emily Lambert was reported missing by Robert Early, investigators were alerted to a crime that might have escaped immediate attention had he not called. Was Early a concerned boyfriend? Or, was there much more to him than met the eye? While investigators questioned him and as he went from interviewee to prime suspect, Lambert’s 2 young daughters waited for word on the whereabouts of their mom. Emily Lambert’s parents immediately made the 8-hour drive to New Mexico, never imagining they would eventually be the ones to raise the two girls. Oxygen’s new series Criminal Confessions, which debuts Sunday, starts with an episode about Emily Lambert’s case. It examines the process by which police investigators question potential subjects, in a manner that elicits a confession deemed admissible in a courtroom.

5 Of The Most Shocking Criminal Confessions Of All Time | Crime Time

Some of the most notorious murderers of all time kept the truth of their crimes to the grave. Others, for whatever reason, come clean about their killings. We’re counting down the most shocking criminal confessions of all time, in anticipation of the premiere of Criminal Confessions, which premieres October 1.

Check out our list, below:

1. Ted Bundy


Notorious serial killer Ted Bundy maintained his innocence up until very late in his life, creating excuses, alibis, and rationalizions up until the very end, even acting as his own belligerent attorney in court in the hopes of getting the charges dismissed. In her groundbreaking book The Stranger Beside Me, Anne Rule details the extreme lengths Bundy went to clear his name. But when he finally did confess to his crimes, he exaggerated them with great braggadocio: “Add one digit to that, and you’ll have it,” responded Bundy to an FBI agent who guessed
