32: SERIAL KILLER: The Claremont Killer
2700
Since 1996, people in Claremont had been looking over their shoulders when they go out for a night on the town. Over the span of a few years, three girls were taken from the same place in nearly identical fashions. Many years later, those crimes would be connected to other attacks dating back to 1988. And somehow, in 2016, a man was arrested for these crimes... But we still don't know exactly how police got his name.&nbsp;<br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

Through the 80's &amp; 90's, women in the state of Washington were turning up dead. First, along the Green River, then in other clusters throughout the state and even into Portland, Oregon. Not only had these women been murdered but their killer would re-visit their corpses and sexually assault them multiple times until their corpses were fully decomposed and consumed by maggots. A man named Gary Ridgeway had been pointed out by a number of witnesses as being the Green River Killer but police were unable to make an arrest until DNA connected him to four crimes scenes in 2001 – two decades and at least 49 victims later.<br><br><br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

20: ADNAN: What Serial Didn't Tell You
2640
Hundreds of millions of people tuned into Serial season one back in 2014\. Sarah Koenig told us all about the story of 18 year old high school senior Hae Min Lee who disappeared on January 13th, 1999\. Hae's body was later found in Leakin Park, and not too long after the discovery of her body, police zeroed in on their prime suspect: Adnan Syed. Sarah took us all through 12 episodes of "Did he or didn't he?" and many of us ended the season with more questions than answers. But did you know that Serial was just the beginning and there was so much that Sarah never covered? If you listened to Serial season one, you must listen to this single episode that sums up the top four points Serial didn't tell you, but you need to know, before you decide whether or not you think Adnan is guilty. We won't be re-covering the Serial story - we jump in assuming you already know it. So, if you haven't listened yet, check out the first season of Serial.<br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

What makes a seemingly normal family man snap, murder his entire family, and assume a new identity in Mexico?

The prosecution and the public seem pretty clear on what took place the day the Longo family died, but Christian's surprise story after he goes to trial is just his final way of disgracing his family.<br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.
