Revisit One of Montco's Most Infamous Murder Cases
Commissioner Bruce Castor will be featured in an upcoming episode of "Cold Blood" detailing the case of the General Wayne Inn murder in 1996.
From the Montgomery County Office of Communications:
When Commissioner Bruce L. Castor Jr. was the district attorney in Montgomery County, he prosecuted many cases, but few generated more attention than his successful prosecution of Guy Sileo. Sileo, the co-owner of the General Wayne Inn in Lower Merion, was convicted of killing his business partner, Jim Webb, at the restaurant on Dec. 27, 1996.
This Thursday, May 3 at 9 p.m., Castor will be featured in an episode of Cold Blood detailing the murder, the investigation and the prosecution of Sileo. The show runs on the Discovery ID channel (channel 111 on Comcast and channel 123 on Verizon. Find the TV Guide listing here.) This is the second of Castor’s cases to be featured on the series this year alone.
The General Wayne Inn murder has been the subject of several television portrayals. In this one-hour show, Castor will offer insights and expert opinion on the case, which was largely circumstantial. Sileo is now serving a life sentence for first-degree murder.
