TRUE CRIME: A suspect’s sister helps police find the killer of an 8-year-old Gary boy – Cleburne Times

GARY — Richard Meadows wanted to one day make it in the Guinness Book of World Records.

The 10-year-old boy wanted to set a record as the first child to write to a million. He only made it to 44,000 before a bullet pierced through the boy’s window and hit him in the head. 

Richard had been sleeping in his bed the morning of Aug. 14, 1993, at his home in the 4700 block of Delaware Street in Gary. The head of the bed had been facing the window of the front of the house. 

His family later recalled Richard got out of bed, went to a hallway and said, “Oh this hurts,” before falling. He later died at an area hospital. 

Richard’s homicide happened during an era when Gary was notoriously referred to as the murder capital. That year alone, the city logged 105 homicides, according to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report.

But with the success of the podcast “Serial,” HBO’s “The Jinx,” Netflix’s “Making a Murderer” and FX’s “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” true crime content proliferates at a greater rate now than in the recent past.

“True crime used to be a staple in the TV movie business, which doesn’t really exist anymore,” says FX original programming president Eric Schrier. “We didn’t get into it for any specific reason. It was really about the material and the auspices.”

“American Crime Story” executive producer Brad Simpson says true crime docu-drama on cable outlets for the past 10 years, coupled with the rise of the anthology limited series, gave rise to the current spree. And the current political
