20 year anniversary of Ewell family murders

Friday, April 20, 2012

One of the most infamous crimes prosecuted by Ed Hunt's DA office took place exactly twenty years ago today.

In 1992, Dana Ewell had his college friend Joel Radovcich kill Ewell's father, mother, and sister in their Sunnyside-area home.

Dale Ewell was a businessman and multi-millionaire. He had just returned from a weekend on the coast with his wife Glee and Dana's older sister Tiffany.

Detectives believed Dana Ewell had his parents and sister killed so he could inherit the family fortune. And he convinced his college roommate to execute the family by promising Radovcich part of the money.

Ewell and Radovcich were later convicted of triple murder and both are currently serving life sentences in prison. The case generated national attention with books and made for TV movies.
