MMC professor to be part of 'Evil Twins' television episode
March 12, 2014
An upcoming episode of the Investigation Discovery (“ID”) Channel’s series, “Evil Twins,” will focus on two Pulaski brothers convicted for three 1986 murders chronicled in a book written by a member of the Martin Methodist College faculty.
The show, scheduled to air at 10 p.m. Thursday, March 27, focuses on Hugh “Pete” Bondurant and his twin brother, Kenneth Patterson “Pat” Bondurant, now 58 years old and both incarcerated in Riverbend Maximum Security Prison in Nashville, Tenn. Among those interviewed extensively for the TV show was Dr. John White, associate professor of criminal justice at Martin Methodist, whose 2001 book, “Murder Murder,” detailed the crimes and trials of the twins. The book was republished as an e-book in 2013.
Before joining the Martin Methodist College faculty, White spent his career in law enforcement, including serving as an investigator for the Pulaski Police Department at the time of the Bondurant murders.
The Bondurants were convicted in 1991 for the horrific 1986 murder of 24-year-old Gwen Dugger of Ardmore, Ala. Pat was also convicted in the murder of co-worker Ronnie Gaines (Pete was charged with helping his brother dismember and burn the body), and Pete for the murder of his girlfriend, Terry Lynn Clark. Both of those crimes also occurred in 1986. Pat Bondurant is set for release in 2070; his brother is scheduled to be released in 2018.
Sirens Media conducted interviews and shot footage in Giles County last summer and gathered background information and additional film footage from the twins’ trials.
