Dr. Phil offers Josh Young a polygraph
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Who's telling the truth? Today we will see the conclusion to the Dr. Phil series on the murder of Trey Zwicker. The 14-year old Louisville boy was found savagely beaten behind Liberty High School on May 11, 2011.
On today's show, Josh Young and his cousin, Cassi Gouker, both agree to take polygraph tests. Gouker claims Young woke her up in the middle of the night on May 10, 2011 and asked her to help him hide a murder weapon and bloody clothes. Young said he had nothing to do with the death of Zwicker, his stepbrother.
Young was acquitted at trial after his father confessed to killing Zwicker and setting his son up to take the fall.
The results of the polygraph will air today on Dr. Phil. You can see it on WDRB at 3 PM.
In Monday's Dr. Phil episode, titled, "My Father Tried to Set Me Up for Murder," there was yet another wild accusation. Josh Gouker says he acted like a monster so his son, Joshua Young, could get away with murder.
Young then recalled the moments after he was arrested for killing Trey Zwicker, when he learned his father turned him in.
Young was acquitted for Zwicker's murder and Young's father, Josh Gouker, eventually confessed to beating his stepson to death and setting up his own son.
"Gang affiliation pictures about two weeks ago, had his red bandana over his face, all red, shirt, little fake gun-pointing selfie," Terry Zwicker said.
Terry Zwicker says he just wants closure to finally know what happened to his son.
"The way I believe it happened is Joshua Gouker, Joshua Young and Trey Zwicker. They had an adult taking them down to a ditch bank to smoke a joint. Gouker hit my son in the side of the face while this young man finished it off," Terry Zwicker said.
