Exhumed – The Mercer Case is a podcast investigating the unsolved death of Sally Sue Mercer. Her husband, Dr. Charles “Bill” Mercer, a prominent surgeon in Ingham County, Michigan, was the lead suspect in the 1968 death of Sally. Dr. Mercer maintained his innocence until his recent death.
We are not recreating a trial. There wasn’t one. Instead, we organized hours of interviews, stacks of documents, and months of sleuthing into a trial-like format.
Our trial is mainly conducted through podcasts. But for a sample of the case and what is to come, check out the trailers below.
The Mercer case involved death, an affair, violence, talks of a cover-up, drugs and years of police pursuit. For a timeline of what happened, click on the image below.
