NCIS: The Cases They Can’t Forget is back for a third season with a two-hour premiere. The first Season 3 episode “Road Map to Murder” investigates the 2007 murder of U.S. Naval Officer Cory Allen Voss. The 30-year-old sailor was murdered after using an ATM in Newport News, Virginia. According to the show, the investigation followed a trail of “twisted relationships, lies and secret double-lives.”
That trail led to a hospital where two of the suspects met as they served as medical guinea pigs testing drugs. Eight months after Voss’s murder, two men and a woman were arrested and charged with murder.
Voss’s wife, Catherina “Cat” Voss, pleaded guilty to plotting and hiring David Runyon to murder her husband so that she could live with her lover Michael Draven and receive $500,000 in insurance money. She sent her husband to an ATM where Runyon shot Voss five times and made it look like a robbery. Catherina Voss was sentenced to serve four life terms in prison. (Draven received a sentence of three life terms in prison.)
In 2009, Runyon was sentenced to death for Voss’s murder. According to the Daily Press, Runyon, a former Army solider, stood at attention as the sentence was read. According to Death Penalty Information Center, of the 62 inmates currently on death row in the U.S., Runyon is the only Asian man. 26 are Black; 27 are White; 7 are Latino; and 1 is Native American. NCIS: The Cases They Can’t Forget airs Wednesdays at 9 pm on CBS.
