Driven by current events, "Dr. Drew" on HLN focuses on the human - and human behavior - at the center of the story.

Zwicker's dad offers theory on son's death

  • Josh Gouker, Trey Zwicker's stepfather and Joshua Young's father, pleaded guilty to stepson's murder
  • Young is on trial for complicity to murder in the death of Trey Zwicker

On Tuesday, Joshua Gouker’s fellow inmates took the stand saying that the convicted murderer made statements to them incriminating his son Joshua Young in Trey Zwicker’s 2011 beating death.

Gouker, Zwicker’s stepfather, said Young was the killer in one of his initial statements two years ago. He later explained that if his son, who was 15 at the time of the Zwicker’s death, took the blame as a minor, Young would have probably gotten a lesser sentence. Young is currently charged with complicity to murder and complicity to tampering with evidence in the case.

Gouker testified this week about whether his son had anything to do with the murder. Zwicker’s father, Terry, heard the testimony and told HLN’s Dr. Drew Tuesday night his thoughts and theory of what happened that fateful night.
