This week the Rude and the Prude discuss the Steven Cox investment fraud that led hundreds of investors penniless and Steven Cox and Eugene Richmond on the run. We'll also try our best to talk about the murder of 4-year-old Barbara Jean Horn. Easter tries her best to mitigate the "cox" jokes and Brown is ready to park multiple sports utility vehicles on Steven Cox's forehead. Strap in for this one; it's a doozy.
