just saw this case for the first time on the Farina version. How sad. He was obviously killed off by Dennis Watson or associates of him to prevent him from testifying.

Yeah, he had absolutely nothing to do with anything Dennis Watson had going on. He was literally at the wrong place at the wrong time. Makes me mad.

Yeah. And the fact he wasn't getting police protection until the trial makes me mad as well.

does anyone think maybe munson saw something he shouldn't have? Or maybe someone knew something about him and maybe he was in on something and made a mistake?

funny how a bullet shell was in the car but everything else was neat. Did he own a gun? Did he plant that himself and ran off maybe? Odd that neighbours say they saw him leave for work that day and he was abducted shortly after because he did not make it to work. Someone else must have known his schedule and what he did for a living.

i think deep down he is dead though. But I think someone he knew or was in his inner circle knows more. Who were his friends? Past girlfriends? What bars did he go to?

He had to tell police that he bought the stolen car or he could have been accused of stealing it himself. He would have gotten into serious trouble if he'd ditched out on a subpoena, too. But most importantly, he didn't know how dangerous Dennis Watson really was. I think the investigators failed miserably in their duties by not investigating the accused more thoroughly, only to discover what happened to other witnesses before Oliver AFTER he had vanished. They dropped the ball.

If the late Mr. Munson had only said he couldn't remember, he would be alive today.
He probably wouldn't have felt comfortable lying to law enforcement.

Hmm it's easy to look back after the poor guy was killed and say he should have skipped town. During the time he did the right thing. I agree with wishfuldreamer why didn't law enforcement look back at watsons violent history and protect Oliver? To me that's the only thing that can be questioned looking back. I'm not going to blame a murder victim for choosing to stand up and do the right thing rather than running away.

Watson is guilty as sin.

-Munson disappeared three days before he was to testify at Watson's trial.
-He never showed up for work on the day of his disappearance (which was a ten minute drive).
-His car was found two days later with a flat tire.
-A car that was stolen the day of Munson's disappearance was found almost 2 weeks later near the entrance to Leakin Park (in Baltimore). Inside the car were two receipts with Oliver Munson's name on them. A shell casing as well as blood was found in the car as well.

Based off of these facts, it seems like Munson was set up. The flat tire was probably deflated by the murderer/s who then got Munson to enter the stolen vehicle, either by force or by the ruse of giving him a ride. Shortly afterwards, they shot him and dumped his body. And based off of his family describing him as kind of a "recluse", no one in the world had any motive to want Oliver Munson dead besides Dennis Watson.

And as far as I know, Watson's whereabouts are a mystery today.

What I found particularly senseless about this story is that even without Munson's testimony, Watson was still convicted of the auto theft charge and received a ten-year prison sentence (and was paroled after serving five). Even if Munson had shown up to testify, I have a feeling Watson probably would have gotten the same sentence anyway, so Munson's murder was likely committed for nothing.

Couldn't agree more. What a shame. This has to be one of the saddest cases I've seen in a long time.

Just realized that the stolen vehicle containing the blood and Oliver's video store receipts was found at Leakin Park, which is apparently a notorious dumping ground for bodies and has gotten a lot of play recently on "Serial" since Hae Min Lee's body was found there.

I'm confused on that part, UM depicts authorities towing the Datsun from Munson's house because it was a stolen vehicle.
