Episode Date
275: Episode 275 - The Assassination of Olof Palme
3659
In February 1986, the prime minister of Sweden was walking home from the cinema, when a man stepped out of a shop doorway and shot him in the neck with a .357 Magnum. The killer ran down a side street – and disappeared without a trace.

The mystery surrounding Olof Palme’s death is a Swedish national obsession that's barely left the headlines in the decades since. Hundreds of theories, from international hitmen to lone gunmen and police conspiracies, have swirled around one of the most extensive murder investigations in history.

And then, in 2020, investigators called a press conference – to announce that they had finally found the killer…

ShortHand: Did Gonorrhoea Give Us Grandparents?
518
There are plenty of things that separate us from the animal kingdom. But one of the weirdest and most inexplicable is that we can grow so bloody old – way past reproductive age. 

And one theory is that we owe our longevity to none other than the sexually transmitted infection, gonorrhoea. How? Well, you’ll have to listen to find out…

1454
Jared Fogle was an all-American megastar. Famous for losing almost half his body weight on a diet consisting of Subway sandwiches, crisps and diet soda, Jared became one of the richest stars in TV advertising history.

Amazon Music Presents SUSPECT: Vanished in the Snow
389
For more than three and a half decades, the disappearance of 12-year-old Jonelle Matthews was a mystery – a riddle neither authorities nor her family members could solve. The residents of her cloistered Colorado hometown had scoured every inch of prairie. Jonelle’s face had been on milk cartons nationwide. Even the President of the United States had appealed to the public for help. Still, every lead had fizzled. Every person of interest had turned out to be a dead end. 

Then, in 2019, Jonelle’s remains were unearthed near the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. With the discovery came a troubling new question: Had the truth been hiding in plain sight the entire time? Was the man who couldn’t stop obsessing over Jonelle’s disappearance also the person who took her? From Campside Media and Wondery comes season two of SUSPECT. Former CNN reporter Ashley Fantz and executive producers Matthew Shaer and Eric Benson (Suspect, Over My Dead Body) dig into one of the most mind-bending cold cases in modern history, in an attempt to separate fact and fiction, compulsion from guilt, and true-crime fandom from a motive for murder.

In this episode (that underwent a frantic rewrite in light of these recent developments), Suruthi and Hannah discuss the arrest of Allen, the personality profile of the Delphi killer and what we do know about the crime scene - plus the unbelievable catfishing twist that threw us all…

In part two of our special on Europe’s witch craze, we take a look at how the insanity spread to the UK thanks to a paranoid new king and a 19-year-old, self-styled Witchfinder General. Plus: what really goes down at a witches’ sabbath, and why did women make up 90% of the thousands killed?

On 14 February 2017, the bodies of 13-year-old Abby Williams and 14-year-old Libby German were found in the woods in Delphi, Indiana.
Libby’s phone was discovered not far from the crime scene, and the videos she  had recorded on it quickly made this case one of the most infamous of recent decades…

ShortHand: The European Witch Craze – Part 1
1455
For over a thousand years, witches were believed to be local soothsayers who used their powers for everyday charms and spells. But in the 16th and 17th centuries, Europe was suddenly gripped by a new idea: that witches were part of an organised demonic network, plotting with the devil himself to cloud the whole world in evil.

And to stop the armies of darkness, more than 200,000 people were executed across Europe for the crime of witchcraft.

In the first half of our two-parter on Europe's witch hunters, H&S look at how it grew into a state-sanctioned frenzy, why it lasted for over 200 years, and some of the more gruesome torture methods they used to extract confessions...

ShortHand: Why Did Anyone Believe in Elizabeth Holmes?
1594
Elizabeth Holmes and her startup, Theranos, are now infamous. With millions of lives put at risk, and hundreds of millions of dollars flushed down the toilet, they serve as the ultimate cautionary tale of “fake it till you make it” gone wrong. 

But with her sentence approaching, we ask why anyone trusted Elizabeth Holmes in the first place – first with their money, and then with American lives…

269: Episode 269 - Devil’s Dorp
3639
Krugersdorp, a town northwest of Johannesburg, has always had high levels of violent crime. But when South Africa’s own satanic panic kicked into full force in the early 90s, its citizens had an altogether more unholy threat on their hands.

This is the story of a godly rivalry that spun out of control – taking in vampires, werewolves and the murders of eleven people. And behind it all, a 48th-generational satanic witch with 1,000 multiple personalities and a score to settle.

ShortHand: Japan’s Suicide Forest
1443
Few places live up to their reputation like Aokigahara, known in the West as Japan’s ‘Suicide Forest’. 

Dense woodland, purported magnetic interference and tales of ghostly Yurei make navigating the forest difficult – but finding a secluded place to contemplate your existence is all too easy. Every year, dozens of people travel to Aokigahara to take their lives. But why? This week, we discuss the dark Japanese folklore and sinister realities behind one of the world's most tragically disturbing places…

268: Episode 268 - Blake Leibel: A Blueprint for Evil
2148
This case takes the notion of life imitating art to a newly macabre extreme. In 2010, Blake Leibel released his graphic novel, Syndrome. Described as The Truman Show meets Se7en, the story follows a rogue neuropathologist as he attempts to find a cure for evil, using a condemned serial killer as his guinea pig.

Initially met with a lukewarm response, the novel garnered international attention in 2015 after Leibel seemed to use its most violent scenes to commit what's been described as "the most brutal murder in LA's history".

ShortHand: 2 Guys 1 Horse – Mr Hands
1645
Charles Bukowski once said, “Find what you love and let it kill you”. Which are good words to live by. Unless that is, what you love happens to be getting freaky with a horse.

In this week’s Shorthand, we’ll be exploring the disturbing story behind one of the internet’s most infamous viral videos, The Enumclaw Horse Sex Case, and finding out the history, psychology, and morality (or lack thereof) of bestiality.

267: Episode 267 – The Unbelievable Saga of Thomas Quick
3956
In the early 1990s, a patient at Säter mental institution was undergoing the facility’s revolutionary memory-recovery therapy, when he revealed a shocking incident from his past. Back in 1980, he had killed an 11-year-old boy.

As the therapy continued, more and more brutal confessions came, until he was linked to 39 of Sweden’s most infamous murders. He became known as the nation’s answer to Hannibal Lecter – a sadistic, cannibalistic serial-killer paedophile. 

So strap in for shocking confessions, experimental psychotherapy, and a revelation that shook the Swedish justice system to its core…

In a small town in the Dominican Republic, more than one percent of boys are born as ‘Güevedoces’. The name, which translates to ‘penis at twelve’, refers to children who are assigned female at birth, but develop male genitalia only at the onset of puberty. This week, Hannah and Suru take a look at the fascinating science behind the phenomenon – and how it’s influenced modern medicine.

266: Episode 266 - The Burari Deaths: Ritual Slaughter
4273
In the early morning of 1 July 2018, Gurcharan Singh went to check on his neighbours in the Burari district of Delhi. When he got there, he found a crime scene so chilling that the whole city was thrown into a frenzy. 

Ten members of the Chundawat family were hanging from the ceiling. Another, the 80-year-old grandmother, was found strangled in the next room. And the police, the public, and the national media were stumped – it seemed too complex for suicide; too organised for murder. And then, they discovered a diary that changed everything…

In the first case in five years of RedHanded to cause Suruthi to sleep with the lights on, we delve into the murky, ritualistic details of the Burari deaths.

1747
Throughout the 2000s tabloid TV was at its peak. The Jeremy Kyle Show didn’t follow celebrities into China Whites on a Thursday, it humiliated white working-class people every day at 9:30 am.

And we all watched it. The Jeremy Kyle Show enjoyed 1 million viewers every day. On this week's ShortHand learn how the show and its studio were explicitly designed to bring out the very worst in extremely vulnerable people. 

We will never know how many lost their lives as a result of this daytime nightmare.

With a 28-year-old Mormon mum still missing – and her husband and father-in-law behaving increasingly erratically – police edged ever closer to finding their culprit.

And a string of shocking discoveries, including hard drives full of hentai, a collection of tampons and a suspicious car accident, only helped their case. What they didn’t know was that before it was all over, in a shocking final act, another four people would end up dead.

In the conclusion of our two-part episode, we wrap up the chaotic case of Susan Cox Powell.

ShortHand: HIV’s “Patient Zero”
1510
Starting in June 1981, the AIDS epidemic ravaged communities all over the world. Since then, the retrovirus has taken 36.3 million lives, and there are reported to have been as many as 100 million confirmed cases the world over.

Its spread through North America primarily affected the 4 Hs: homosexuals, hemophiliacs, heroin users, and Haitian immigrants. And it was reported in the international press to have all come from one man…

This is the story of how that poisonous narrative – wrongly blaming one Air Canada flight attendant for a deadly epidemic – became a part of the zeitgeist.

What is it that possesses us to collect things? To meticulously curate a store of anything from stamps to taxidermied cats? And when that collection focuses on the macabre – like Nazi uniforms, murder weapons, and serial killer memorabilia (AKA “murderabilia”) – what is the collector hoping to gain?

In the words of Ed Gein, “Every man has to have a hobby”. Some bake sourdough bread, some go LARPing, and some collect items owned by the most sadistic and violent psychopaths in human history.

263: Episode 263 - Larry Nassar: Mental Gymnastics
3847
In the gruelling world of elite gymnastics, Larry Nassar was seen by a lot of young athletes as a friendly face in tough times. As the USA Gymnastics National Medical Coordinator, he performed treatments on children as young as ten, for almost 30 years. 

And under cover of those treatments, he was routinely molesting hundreds of young girls for decades – sometimes multiple times a day, often with their parents sitting just metres away.

After multiple investigations, he seemed untouchable. But thanks to the bravery of his survivors – and the discovery of three external hard drives – the world saw him for what he really was: a calculated predator, with more victims than Bill Cosby, Jerry Sandusky and Harvey Weinstein combined. Hannah and Suruthi chart the biggest sexual abuse scandal in sports history.

ShortHand: Is Stockholm Syndrome Real?
1390
50 years ago, a man walked into a bank in Stockholm, Sweden with a machine gun, shot at the ceiling, and screamed "THE PARTY HAS JUST BEGUN!"

Little did he know, that this party would turn into a six-day long stand-off with police and be the birth of the now well-known term Stockholm Syndrome.

But did you know that despite being cited in numerous media reports of hostage situations and abuse cases, Stockholm Syndrome has never been included in the DSM? Therefore it’s not recognised as an official psychological condition…

So, what is Stockholm Syndrome exactly, and does it even exist?

Or more specifically, at three teenagers accused of being in a witches’ coven, and in league with the devil himself...

ShortHand: The Unabomber vs Forensic Linguistics
1573
Ted Kaczynski’s 18-year campaign of domestic terrorism was the most expensive FBI investigation in its history. Bombs went off seemingly at random, across the US and sometimes years apart. After almost two decades, investigators were still at a loss. But when the Unabomber sent his 35,000-word manifesto to national newspapers, the FBI turned to one of the most unlikely branches of criminal investigation out there: forensic linguistics.

This is the story of how word choice, syntax and even the subtleties of a person’s accent have been used through the years to bring killers to justice.

259: Episode 259 - Richard Huckle: Britain's Worst Paedophile
3705
In October of 2019, prison officers at HMP Full Sutton in West Yorkshire discovered the body of a prisoner who'd been subjected to 89 minutes of torture before being strangled to death by another inmate.

The victim was 33-year-old Richard Huckle.

Dubbed by the media as "The Gap Year Paedophile", Huckle was serving a life sentence for carrying out a 9-year-long, systematic campaign of abuse against some of the world's poorest children.

Huckle documented his atrocities on the dark web, authored a how-to-guide for paedophiles, and contributed to one of the largest nonce-networks ever discovered.

This is the story of Richard Huckle and the incredible officers who brought him down.

ShortHand: Should We Be Worried About Monkeypox?
1366
Symptoms like shivering, 'skin eruptions', and anal bleeding are always going to ring alarm bells. But with the first human cases of Monkeypox popping up in the 1970s, why is it hitting headlines now? 


Why has the WHO declared it 'a public health emergency of international concern'? 


And more importantly, should we be sharing towels?

ShortHand: Should We Support Paedophile Catchers?
1520
To some paedophile catchers like Chris Hansen are online superheroes, protecting children and putting predators behind bars. To others they're vigilantes who enforce their own form of justice while putting people in danger. But do they have a place in the system? This week Hannah and Suruthi are jumping into the murky waters of self styled sting operations, hidden cameras, and entrapment to find out.

257: Episode 257 - Genes & Justice: Kathleen Folbigg & Patricia Stallings
3150
“1 sudden infant death is a tragedy, 2 is suspicious and 3 is murder”; this theory has pervaded criminal investigations for decades. And so when Kathleen Folbigg’s daughter, Laura, became her fourth child to die mysteriously - Kathleen found herself labeled “Australia’s Worst Female Serial Killer”.

Today the girls delve into 2 unbelievable cases which highlight the immense challenges of the intersection between science and justice in the courtroom. And discover how a series of bizarre circumstances and medical anomalies could have led to the deaths of 5 babies and the imprisonment of two women.

Shorthand: Why North Sentinel Island is Forbidden
1334
There is an island in the Bay of Bengal populated by indigenous hunter-gatherers, who live much like our ancestors did some 60,000 years ago. They’ve made it clear they want no contact with the outside world, and in the 50s, India made it illegal for anyone to go within five miles of its shoreline.

But a few years ago one man, who thought he was above that rule, snuck onto the island proclaiming to the local tribe that Jesus loved them. He has never been seen again.

Hannah and Suruthi explain the background to John Chau’s evangelical mission – and discuss the few people who have successfully managed to connect with this isolated group.

256: Episode 256 – Norwegian Black Metal: Pure F**king Armageddon
3117
The Norwegian black metal scene of the early 90s started with pigs’ heads impaled on spikes, buried clothes wrapped around dead birds, and other notorious onstage antics. In three years, it spiralled into dozens of ancient churches going up in flames, violent bigotry – and the gruesome deaths of three people.

In this week’s episode, the girls chart the bloody origins of one band, Mayhem, and how they fostered the most feared music scene in history…

With cinema stalwarts being ousted and ostracised left, right and centre, one man seems untouchable. Roman Polanski, a renowned child sex offender, has continued to make celebrated movies long after his 1977 arrest. But how? And why do so many in Hollywood support him?

2605
In 2013, paramedics were called to a home in Mississauga, Ontario.

There they found the body of 40-year-old Caleb Harrison lying in bed, with red marks around his neck.

But this wasn’t the first time that the paramedics had found a dead body at the Harrison family home.

In fact, in the space of just five years, three members of the Harrison family had died in separate and bizarre incidents in the same house…

Was the house haunted by a murderous ghost, or was the family being preyed upon by a calculated and patient killer?

When three masked men entered the Pan family home, it seemed like an opportunistic home break-in. But on closer inspection, things just didn't add up. 

Why would the would-be robbers shoot Hann and Bich Pan in cold blood, but leave their 24-year-old daughter Jennifer relatively unharmed? Why didn’t they drive off in the expensive Lexus that was parked in the drive? 

And why would Hann Pan run from the house, leaving his daughter tied to a bannister?

ShortHand: Why Madeleine McCann?
1948
When Kate and Gerry McCann put their three-year-old to bed on a family holiday in Portugal, they could never have imagined how the next 15 years of their lives would unfold. The horror of their daughter’s sudden disappearance was followed by the most infamous missing-child case in history. In that time, millions have been raised, and Maddie’s name has barely left headlines.

But when more than 600 people disappear without a trace around the world every day, what was it about this story that has kept Maddie’s name in the public eye? On the first episode of our brand new show, we ask: why Madeleine McCann?

Huge thanks to The Franklys for our shiny new ShortHand intro music!

Miraculously, she survived the impact. But when Victoria’s equipment was examined, it became clear there was more to this “freak accident” than met the eye. There were gas leaks, gaslights and grounds to divorce.

Boyzone obsessions and black magic paedophile rings consumed the mind of Sabrina Koudier. And her neighbours turned a blind eye to the strange woman's violent outbursts and vile treatment of her au pair. It wasn't their place to get involved.

But even the well-to-do residents of Southfields couldn't ignore a billowing plume of black smoke and the unmistakable smell of burning hair and flesh.

251: Episode 251 - Andrei Chikatilo: Doomed from the Womb - Part 2
3143
With nothing but a vague suspect profile to go on, and with mutilated bodies piling up around the USSR, Soviet police were battling to bring the Rostov Ripper's reign of terror to an end. 

All the while Andre Chikatilo tore through his victims, constantly changing who he went after. The police were stumped. But with a dogged detective hot on his tail, Chikatilo made a costly mistake.

In this second and final instalment of the story of Andrei Chikatilo, we take you through the events that led to his downfall.

248: Episode 248 - R Kelly: The Pied Piper of R&B
4035
In 2021, a 51-year-old man referred to as “Daddy” by the followers of his alleged sex cult, was found guilty of 8 counts of sex trafficking. 

Breaking any of Daddy’s rules would result in brutal punishment; including beatings, solitary confinement, and starvation. 

“Daddy” kept his victims – most of them teenagers – locked up in his mansion. And all the while, he was topping music charts across the world with his era-defining R&B hits…

This is the story of the rise and fall of Robert Sylvester Kelly.

3739
On 22 May 2017, as Ariana Grande hit the high notes of her final song to a sold-out Manchester Arena, Salman Abedi hit the button on a homemade bomb. The resulting explosion killed Abedi and 22 other innocent people, and left over 1,000 more injured. 

The country mourned, millions of pounds were raised, and we all promised not to let hate win.

But as the dust settled, a worrying question started being asked: how did a known terrorist sympathiser who had fought alongside an ISIL militia slip through the UK’s counterterrorism net?

245: Episode 245 - ‘The Satanic Verses’: Fatwas & Faux Pas
4640
If the contents of a 546-page book can get one man murdered, two more seriously injured and its author forced into hiding for nine years, you can be confident of its subject: religion. But despite its reputation, ‘The Satanic Verses’ isn’t a page-by-page deconstruction of Islam. It’s a work of fiction; one that prompted the leader of Iran to call for a worldwide manhunt of anyone involved in its publication. 

So how did one man’s literary skill get another man literally killed?

244: Episode 244 - The Van Breda Family Axe Murders
4169
When police rushed to respond to a triple murder in one of South Africa’s most exclusive gated communities, it seemed as though Henri van Breda had had a lucky escape. They found him standing on his family lawn, dead-eyed and covered in blood and urine. According to the neighbours, he had been eerily waving to them while he waited for the police. All understandable, when three of your loved ones have been hacked to death by an axe-wielding maniac.

But as police dug further into the burglary-turned-homicide, things just weren't adding up...

Often, on RedHanded, we find ourselves shocked at the actions of killers who callously murder tens of people.

But what if we told you that there was a family out there who are still free to this day, whose actions are responsible for over half a million American deaths over the past 22 years?

We are, of course, talking about infamous scumbags the Sackler family, whose greed, lies, and utterly vile actions unleashed a plague on the people of North America.

Would you take matters into your own hands and get a bitch kneecapped as she walked back to her changing room?

Or would your ex-husband do it and throw you under the bus?

Especially when the said former homeowner was a sexual sadist who'd just been acquitted of murdering his girlfriend.

240: Episode 240 - Kim Jong Nam: Prank Show Assassination
3862

On the 13th of February 2017, two young women - believing that they were taking part in a bizarre Japanese game show -  smeared baby oil across the face of a stranger at Kuala Lumpur Airport in Malaysia.  

The truth, however, was that there was no Japanese game show; the baby oil wasn't baby oil; and these two women had just unknowingly assassinated the estranged half-brother of North Korea's one and only, Supreme Leader, Kim Jong Un.

In the space of 3 weeks in October 2002, Washington D.C was terrorised by a pair of spree killers carrying out a spate of deadly sniper-style attacks. They killed 10 people and injured 3 others.

Their choice of victims was shockingly random; they crossed racial, gender, age and socioeconomic lines - ensuring that everyone was absolutely terrified.
And when the pair were finally apprehended, authorities realised that they had been wrong about almost everything from motive to profile…

In part two of our deep-dive into the evolution of the Satanic Panic, we talk bout how anonymous messages left on 4chan became a global cult and started a chain of events that has led to real-world violence including the 2021 Capitol riots, and the deaths of two children. It's time to talk QAnon…

On the 14th of April 1984, the body of a baby boy was found on Cahersiveen Beach, County Kerry in Ireland. The baby had been stabbed 28 times and its neck was broken.
The Garda quickly found a suspect; Joanne Hayes. And soon, this police investigation became a medieval witch hunt and a dissection of motherhood itself.

These innocent people were the victims of the complacency, ineptitude, and sheer incompetence of those whose very jobs were to ensure their safety. 

Institutional coverups, police corruption, evidence tampering, and lies in the media made it take almost 30 years for the truth to come to light.

In the world of true crime, the media is often accused of inaccuracy, dramatisation, and sensational headline writing, but there's an exception to every rule. Never has a killer fitted their moniker more than Peter Kürten, 'The Vampire of Düsseldorf'...

Kürten may well have had a reflection and he may not have hung from the ceiling like a bat, but in one very key aspect, he was every bit Deutschland's Dracula.

Earlier that day, a man and a woman had collapsed on the high street; both were convulsing and foaming from the mouth.

The people of Salisbury had no idea that their sleepy little town was ground zero for the first chemical weapon attack, using a deadly nerve agent, in Western Europe since WW2.

In early January of 1956, Glasgow police received a phone call about a break-in at the home of the Smart family. The scene they walked in on however was something far more sinister. Peter Smart, his wife, Doris, and their 10-year-old son Michael had all been shot dead at point-blank range in their beds.

It was clear to detectives that the Smarts had been dead for almost a week, but if that was true, it didn’t explain who’d been feeding their cat…

225: Episode 225 - Casey Anthony: Web of Lies - Part 1
5986
When 22-year-old Casey Anthony was arrested on 16 July 2008, her two-year-old daughter Caylee hadn't been seen for over a month. Casey's history of lying and manipulation, as well as her strangely distant attitude towards her missing child, was setting off all kinds of alarm bells... and the smell of death coming from the boot of her car didn't help either.

Prepare for bizarre phone calls, fascinating police interviews, and generally some of the strangest behaviour we've ever witnessed, as we cover one of the most infamous true-crime cases of all time.

FLASH SALE:
For the next three days, you can get 16% off your RedHanded Patreon subscription - when you sign up for an ANNUAL subscription at ANY tier.

224: Episode 224 - The Guildford Four & The Maguire Seven
4488
On the 5th of October 1974, the Provisional Irish Republican Army blew up a military pub in Guildford, killing four soldiers, one civilian and injuring sixty-five others.

The responsibility for the heinous act of terror was quickly thrown at three young Irish men and a seventeen-year-old English girl. On top of this, accusations of running a  "bomb factory" was soon being shouldered by a middle-aged Irish woman who'd lived in England for twenty years.

The British justice system had no evidence to prove the Guildford Four or Maguire Seven were connected to any bombings, but a large helping of police brutality and a bit of systemic corruption would soon sort that out.

223: Episode 223 - Village of the Damned: The Nithari Child Murders
5190
Every couple of weeks like clockwork, another child would vanish from Nithari, Delhi. The police didn't seem concerned, and no one wanted to take a closer look at the alleyway - or so-called "black hole" where all the kids had disappeared. 

What the locals would eventually find in the sewers surrounding bungalow D5 would bring to light a terrifying killer who indulged in paedophilia, necrophilia and cannibalism - in a case that would change India forever

221: Episode 221 - Koh Tao: Murder Island
3584
In September 2015 the brutalised bodies of British backpackers Hannah Witheridge and David Miller were found on the tropical island paradise of Koh Tao. The island off the coast of mainland Thailand, has long been a hotspot for partygoers lured in by the cheap alcohol, stunning beaches, and of course its infamous full moon parties.

With the whole world watching, two suspects for the brutal murders were quickly found, but with 20% of the country's income at stake and a background of political unrest, the investigation was far from faultless.

Bonus - Georgia Williams: The Snuff Film Maker Down the Street
3024
In this second instalment of our promise to deliver two bonus episodes after we won GOLD at the British Podcast Awards, we cover the heartbreaking case of Georgia Williams. 

Georgia was a high-achieving and kind teenager who was always willing to help those who asked, and her killer knew this. 23-year-old Jamie Reynolds had an obsession with violent pornography and snuff movies. In May 2013 he used Georgia's good nature against her and eventually guilted the 16-year-old into coming over to his parents' house to take part in a "fake murder" photoshoot, that soon turned out to be all too real.

210: Episode 210 - Shamima Begum: ISIS & The Bethnal Green 3 - Part 2
5462
This week Suruthi and Hannah head into a place widely regarded as one of the most dangerous places in the Middle East right now - the notorious al-Hawl camp. It's where, in 2019, a British journalist found an 18-year-old, 9-month pregnant Shamima Begum. Soon after this discovery, Shamima Begum would have her British citizenship revoked, leaving her stateless in the desert hell-hole.

In the concluding episode of this series, the girls discuss how ISIS used religion to justify sex slavery, the fall of the so-called caliphate and what should be done with individuals like Shamima Begum.

Bonus: The Columbine High School Massacre
3788
Earlier this year we promised that if we won gold in the BPA Listeners' Choice category, we would deliver two bonus episodes chosen by the Spooky Bitches. This is the first of those episodes - The Columbine High School Massacre.

The months leading up to the 20th of April 1999 - and the mindsets of both Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold - have been very well documented. And yet the story of The Columbine High School Massacre is still full of misreporting, misunderstanding, and miscommunication.

In this episode of RedHanded, we aim to dispel some myths and get into the facts behind America's most infamous high-school shooting.

206: Episode 206 - Fritz Haarmann: The Butcher of Hannover
4306

In the early 1900s Germany was a nation ravaged by the horrors of war, debt and death. For years, as they struggled with stagflation and starvation, all manner of depravity began to emerge; there had even been rumours of human meat being sold on Germany’s black markets.

And it was during this time, that a dangerous man roamed the streets committing a series of gruesome murders so diabolical that he terrified people who had survived the nightmares of WW1. This man, a deviant sexual sadist, went on to be known as The Butcher of Hanover...

5327

Anton LaVey, founder and head priest of the Church of Satan, led a controversial life; he was linked to the death of a famous Hollywood starlet and even a Kennedy brother. In this episode Hannah and Suruthi explore LaVey's early life, from burlesque organ player, to occultist, to being labelled by some as "the most evil man in the world".

Join the girls for a deep dive into America's satanic panic, the origins of Satanism and how it has evolved over the decades.

Episode 204 - Dennis Nilsen: The North London Necrophile
4534

In 1983, in an unassuming suburb of North London ,some plumbers were called out to fix an un-flushable toilet. This already unpleasant job was made much worse by the distinctly hand shaped bones mixed in with lumps of human flesh blocking the drains. This discovery would lead to the arrest of Britain's most notorious necrophile, Dennis Nilsen. The body Nilsen had chopped up, diligently flushed down the toilet and blocked the with was his last victim, but it was nowhere near his first...

30th December 2000, in Setagaya Japan, the Miyazawa family were preparing for the upcoming festivities. Tragically, however, the family wouldn't live to see the new year because that night they were all brutally murdered in their own home. A plethora of evidence was left behind at the scene, including DNA, fingerprints, half-eaten food and even an entire outfit, but still to this day this case remains one of Japan's most notorious unsolved murders.

202: Episode 202 - The Haunting Murder of Matthew Shepard
4456

Content Warning - this episode contains quotes pertaining to homophobic and discriminatory language which some listeners may find upsetting.


Listener discretion is advised.


On the 7th of October 1998, 21-year old Matthew Shepard was found tied to a prairie fence at the end of a remote dirt track in Laramie, Wyoming. The young gay man had been pistol-whipped in the head over 20 times, and his brain stem had been crushed. He died 6 days later in hospital. 

This case went on to become arguably the most infamous gay hate crime in modern history, and for many Matthew became a martyr. 

In this episode, the girls examine what happened that night, the defendants’ muddled legal decisions, and the latest "bombshell evidence"…

200: Episode 200 - Jimmy Savile: Predator in Plain Sight - Part 1
4317

For decades, TV presenter Jimmy Savile was idolised as a national treasure in Britain. He was knighted, awarded an OBE, he rubbed shoulders with royalty, prime ministers and he ruled the roost at the BBC. Savile also raised millions for charity, for which he was rewarded with the literal keys to hospitals and children's homes across the country. The power and adoration Savile enjoyed was matched only by his perversions and depravity...

In part 1 of this 2 part series, Hannah and Suruthi explore the truth behind Jimmy Savile's eccentric facade, delve into his secretive childhood and ask why no one stopped this monstrous predator.

Bonus - Kate Webster: The Real Life Sweeney Todd
2062

Thanks to ‘NOW’, and the new show ‘The Nevers’, we’re taking all you spooky bitches on a trip to Victorian London for an extra special bonus episode. And it’s a wild one...in fact, today’s episode resulted in one of the most sensational trials of the time - so big, that the future King of Sweden made the trip all the way to The Old Bailey just to watch!


In January 1879 Mrs Julia Martha Thomas hired Kate Webster, a petty criminal, to be her live-in maid. A month later Mrs Thomas’s neighbours would complain of a foul stench coming from the woman’s home. Things only became weirder when Kate was seen wearing her boss’s clothes and allegedly selling jars of ‘Best Dripping’ to pub landlords…


Was Kate Webster the real-life Sweeney Todd?


Strap yourself in for theft, murder, an interesting stew, and even a cameo from the great Sir David Attenborough.

5945

When Cindy James' decomposing body was found bound and dumped outside an abandoned house, those who knew her best were horrified - but not entirely shocked.

Cindy had been harassed and attacked by a seemingly all-knowing and malevolent stalker for almost a decade. But, in all those years, despite the thousands of hours of police work spent trying to find Cindy's tormentor, detectives had nothing more than a bizarre phone message to show for it...

In Conversation with Clair McGowan: Ireland's Vanishing Triangle
1631

Between 1993 and 1998, eight women went missing from an area around Dublin that became known as the ‘Vanishing Triangle’. Was there a link? Speculation abounded. There were whispers of a serial killer, responsible for some, if not all, of these cases. But nobody was ever brought to justice.


Twenty years later, the brutal murder of Jastine Valdez disturbs crime novelist Claire McGowan into action. 


Reminded, like many in Ireland, of those previous missing women, McGowan brought her skills as a novelist to the real world, setting out to uncover the truth of the vanishing triangle. As she dug deeper, she found something terrible lurking behind the idyllic image of rural Ireland and the 21st-century success story of the ‘Celtic Tiger'. 

In this exclusive interview, Claire speaks with the girls about her brand new Audible Original: 'The Vanishing Triangle', and in which attempts to uncover new evidence and solve the many questions surrounding Ireland's Vanishing Triangle. 


This interview is available in video form for all $10+ Patrons right now!

During Liberia’s first bloody civil war, Joshua Milton Blahyi - aka General Butt Naked - was the nation’s most feared warlord. It is estimated that he is responsible for the deaths of at least 20,000 people, lives he destroyed as he raped and ravaged his way through Liberia using human sacrifice and cannibalism to give him and his army of child soldiers “divine” strength. In this episode, Suruthi and Hannah follow the trail of destruction created by Blahyi, and ask can a man once dubbed “the most evil man in the world” really change?

In Conversation With Emily Kenway: The Truth About Modern Slavery
3261

Emily Kenway is a writer and activist. As a former advisor to the UK's first Anti-Slavery Commissioner she was at the heart of modern slavery action. She has written for a variety of publications including the Guardian and TLS.


In 2019, over 10,000 possible victims of slavery were found in the UK. From men working in Sports Direct warehouses for barely any pay, to teenaged Vietnamese girls trafficked into small town nail bars, we're told that modern slavery is all around us, operating in plain sight.


But is this really slavery, and is it even a new phenomenon? Why has the British Conservative Party called it 'one of the great human rights issues of our time', when they usually ignore the exploitation of those at the bottom of the economic pile? The Truth About Modern Slavery reveals how modern slavery has been created as a political tool by those in power. It shows how anti-slavery action acts as a moral cloak, hiding the harms of the 'hostile environment' towards migrants, legitimising big brands' exploitation of the poorest workers and oppressing sex workers.


Blaming the media's complicity, rich philanthropists' opportunism and our collective failure to realise the lies we're being told, The Truth About Modern Slavery provides a vital challenge to conventional narratives on modern slavery.


Emily's incredible book 'The Truth About Modern Slavery' is available via this link

In this episode Hannah and Suruthi explore what people trafficking really is as they delve into the UK's prolific slavery network.

In the late 90s Pastor Åsa Waldau became the leader of the Knutby Pentecostal church. She had already been sacked from such a post in Uppsala after having "inappropriate relationships'' with the teenage boys in her congregation, but that wasn't about to stop Åsa. In Knutby she doubled the size of the sect and soon decided that she was in fact the bride of none other than Jesus Christ. Needless to say, the community soon found itself in cult territory...

1788

As the secret project deadline hangs ominously over us, we have dug up an absolute stonker from the Patreon vaults to keep you all going! 


In the early 1980s, in a small hamlet in Central Ontario, there was a cult leader with a messiah complex so big he thought he could operate as a surgeon on the living and use his genitals to bring back the dead. Roch Thériault held a vice-like grip over his loyal followers, so tight that they would abandon their children to his surgical madness, and so firm they would abandon their partners for his harem. He called them The Ant Hill Kids, and with him, life was a living hell.

In Conversation with Sonia Faleiro: The Good Girls
2835

In May 2014, the bodies of 2 teenage girls were found hanging from a tree in the Budaun district of Uttar Pradesh in Northern India. It was reported that the girls had been victims of a gang rape.


This story sparked scandal and rage across the nation - but there were serious questions raised about the truth of what had occurred - author and journalist Sonia Faleiro spent four long years investigating the case, talking to relatives, the police, and even the accused...


We had the amazing opportunity to speak with Sonia about her book The Good Girls: An Ordinary Killing, which details her investigation and the events that took place. We also had the chance to pick her brains on the wider religious, societal and cultural problems plaguing the women and girls of India.


The full video version of this interview is available for all $10+ Patrons at patreon.com/redhanded

187: Episode 187 - Leonarda Cianciulli: The Soap-Maker of Correggio - Part 2
3338

In the concluding part of this grisly series Leonarda Cianciulli sinks deeper into depravity. The fear reaches boiling point as her continued experiments, making human soap from the fat of her victims, fail to deliver. And with Leonarda's beloved son Giuseppe about to head to war - she knows she has just one last shot left to save him - and for that another woman must die...

186: Episode 186 - Leonarda Cianciulli: The Soap-Maker of Correggio - Part 1
3690

Leonarda Cianciulli was consumed by fear thanks to a curse her mother had placed on her. She had learned all she could about black magic from the Romani travellers who passed through her little Italian town, but still the deadly effects of the hex persisted - at least in Leonarda's mind.

As she grew desperate, and immersed herself further into the occult, Leonarda realised it was all about the 'law of equivalent exchange'; to save a life, she'd have to take a life...

In part 1 of this 2 part series we explore the roots of Leonarda Cianciulli's life, and what shaped her into Italy's first female serial killer.

In Conversation with Ryan White: The Prank Show Murder of Kim Jong-nam
1975

On the 13th of February 2017, the world witnessed the most high profile political assassination in decades when Kim Jong-nam was exposed to a deadly nerve agent known as VX in the centre of Kuala Lumpur International Airport. The two women who killed the exiled half-brother of Kim Jon-un, claimed they had been tricked and that they thought they were taking part in a Japanese YouTube prank show.

We had the amazing opportunity to talk to Ryan White about the case and his new film Assassins, that follows the two legal teams who fought to save the two women (Siti Aisyah and Đoàn Thị Hươn) from Malaysia's mandatory death penalty for murder.


The video version of this interview is available on Patreon for all $10+ Patrons and Assasins is out now on multiple platforms.

185: Episode 185 - The Cartels Killing Women
3262

On 9 February 2020, 25 year old Ingrid Escamilla was found murdered in her home. She had been stabbed to death by her partner, and then horrifically mutilated. It was just the beginning of one of Mexico's bloodiest years ever.

Femicide in Mexico is at epidemic levels - and the link between the rampant murder of women, corruption and cartels is undeinable. In this episode we explore the horror, the violence and the impunity of what is happening across the nation - and particularly in Ciudad Juarez.

4274

At 1:14pm on 2 October 2018, Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi walked into the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Within minutes he was killed and dismembered by a 15 man hit squad sent from Riyadh.

To this day Jamal’s remains have never been found. And aside from a secretive trial conducted by the Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman - the man who according to the CIA and Turkish intelligence ordered the hit - Jamal has had no justice.

5665

On 22 July 2011, Anders Breivik sent out thousands of the same email. The subject line read: "The Islamisation of Western Europe and the State of the European Resistance Movements", and attached was his 1500 page manifesto. He then detonated a bomb in the government quarter of Oslo, before heading to the island of Utøya, where he would become Norway's worst mass murderer - after taking the lives of 77 people, mainly teenagers.

In this episode Hannah and Suruthi take a look at the childhood and life that led Anders Breivik to carry out one of the worst European terror attacks of the last decade.

Adrian Lim's fascination with the occult, and his obsession with power, drove him to transform himself into a black magic "bomoh". He promised his followers whatever they desired, but in exchange he would need from them, everything that he desired...

Update on the Tuam 796
996

In 1975 the skull of a child was discovered on the site of an old mother and baby home in Tuam, Ireland. It lead to the discovery of hundreds more children's remains that had been disguarded by nuns who ran the home. Years later fearless campaigner and historian Catherine Corless made sure everyone knew about it and enough pressure was put on the Irish government that an investigation commission was formed.


The Mother and Baby Home report has now been released and Hannah has brought you everything you need to know. Not for the faint of heart.

47 year old mum of 3, Lori Vallow was convinced of two things; she was a god and the world was ending. Her job was to prepare her people for the second coming of Christ, in July 2020...

But even as her behaviour became increasingly erratic, and even as those around her started to die in mysterious ways, and even when 2 of her kids - J.J. and Tylee - vanished, it took a shockingly long time for the alarm to be raised.

By which point, it would be far too late for the missing children...

2706

We wanted to celebrate and share some of our top picks from our 2020 Patreon releases, so here is possibly our most requested episode from the $10+ Patreon archives!


In this bonus episode we released last summer, we talked with long time Spooky Bitches, Cassie and Mike as they told us about the challenges and difficulties that their family have faced in the midst of their son Arthur’s serious behavioural issues. Issues including: violence against others, animal abuse, a lack of remorse and callous unemotional traits. They share the major incidents that occurred, how Arthur is now being treated clinically and what they think the future holds for the 14 year old.

Cassie and Mike reached out to us wanting to open up about this difficult topic to try and help anyone else who may be going through something similar, and also to give families like them a voice - we were honoured that they trusted us and we know that it will be received without judgement.

She died of preventable causes aged just twenty-two, while a white officer stood over her saying she was "faking it". This is Ms Dhu's story.

Madalyn Murray O’Hair, was a woman very not of her time. In buttoned-up 50s America she called herself a militant feminist, a thinker and a drinker and - perhaps most heinous of all: an atheist. 

Her provocative ways quickly gained her the illustrious title of "the most hated woman in America". She was so hated in fact that in 1995 when she, her son and her granddaughter went missing no one really seemed to care - that is until in 2001 when their dismembered bodies were found on a ranch in Texas...

159: Episode 159 - The Nepalese Royal Massacre
3353

On 1 June 2001 a bloody massacre unfolded within the palace walls of the Nepalese royal family in Kathmandu. It left 10 members of the royal family dead - including the king, the queen and all 3 of their children.

These killings sparked dangerous conspiracy theories across the globe, started a civil war and set in motion a series of events that led directly to the fall of the entire royal dynasty of Nepal.

4209

In June 2016 the chaos of Brexit reached fever pitch in the UK. One week before the referendum vote was set to take place, politician Jo Cox was savagely shot and stabbed to death outside a public library in the middle of the day. According to eyewitnesses, the assailant screamed “Britain first” as he attacked the defenceless MP. The man was soon revealed to be Thomas Mair, a dedicated neo-Nazi whose decades-long rage had seemingly been sparked into violence by Brexit.

On 13 January 2018, a 17 year old girl made a break for freedom from the house of horrors in which she’d been held captive. She called 911 and soon police stormed the disgusting house in Perris, California. They discovered several children chained to filthy beds in a nightmarish room where the floors were lined with faeces. 

The children were the escapees’ siblings, and those responsible for the torture and imprisonment, were their very own parents.

144: Episode 144 - Candace Newmaker: When "Therapy" Kills
3015

New Merch Release: www.redhandedshop.com



10 year old Candace‘s adopt mum, Jeane Newmaker, wanted nothing more than to help her little girl overcome her attachment disorder. But all the medication in the world wasn’t doing much to ease Candace’s difficult behaviour. Then, a desperate June found a “therapist” who promised quick results. But horrifically the 70 minute rebirthing ritual that followed, ended in Candace’s brutal death.

142: Episode 142 - Johann “Jack” Unterweger: The Poet of Death
3724

In Austria in 1974, Johann Unterweger was sentenced to life for the murder of a young woman. From behind bars he was soon writing beautiful poetry and painting a heartbreaking image of a man who had endured a hard childhood, made some mistakes - but who was now the poster boy for rehabilitation. 

Johann went in to prison an illiterate murderer, and with the help of his many elite supporters, he came out early - as a bestselling author. But everything wasn’t as it seemed, and this is the story of a serial killer who tricked not only his many victims, but also an entire nation.

138: Episode 138 - Witch-Hunt: The San Antonio Satanic Panic
4085

In Texas from 1997 to 1998 four lesbian Latina women were accused and convicted of sexually abusing two young girls in unbelievable devil worship rituals. Homophobia, and the rampant "satanic panic" at the time, sealed the fates of these young women and with no evidence - except the testimony of their young accusers - they were each imprisoned and labelled child rapists.

This is the story of their fight for freedom.

3524

Nirbhaya means "the fearless one", and it was the name given by the Indian media to a 23 year old woman - Jyoti Singh - after she was brutally gang raped on a bus by 6 men. 

Jyoti’s rape and murder was a watershed moment in India, it made grisly headlines across the world, and brought tens of thousands of protesters onto the streets of Delhi to demand a change in how the nation deals with violence against women and girls. This horrific attack still continues to dominate the news as the four remaining convicted men are set to be hanged any day now...

4109

In 2015, self-proclaimed Nazi - Lindsay Souvannarath and her murderous bae, James Gamble plotted to commit a Valentine's Day mass shooting at a mall in Nova Scotia. Thankfully their plan failed.

But to understand what led these two "lovebirds" on a sadistic path of rage and murder, we need to explore the dark world of online radicalisation, white supremacy, esoteric Hilterism and teen Tumblr romance...

Expect a lot of cock swastikas, meme chat and race hate.

133: Episode 133 - The UK's Most Prolific Rapist: Reynhard Sinaga
3834

When 18 year old, Peter, woke up in a mystery flat after a night out he was scared. It was then with horror that he realised he couldn't move his arms, and a strange man was sexually assaulting him...

That man was Reynhard Sinaga; and thanks to Peter, in January 2020, Sinaga was finally convicted of 159 sexual offences, including 136 counts of rape. 

For years he'd been preying on the men of Manchester, England - attacking with impunity and going totally undetected thanks in large part to his innocent looks, and the copious amounts of GHB that he plied his victims with.

This week we uncover the man behind the mugshot.

132: Episode 132 - Michelle Carter & Conrad Roy: “Love You Forever”
3869

When 18 year old Conrad Roy was found dead in his truck it looked like an obvious suicide.

But as detectives started their investigation it soon became clear that this was anything but obvious. Conrad and his 17 year old online girlfriend, Michelle Carter, had exchanged a series of troubling messages in the lead up to his death. Ones in which Michelle seemingly encouraged Conrad to kill himself.

Today RedHanded asks the question - did Michelle Carter cause Roy Conrad’s suicide, or was it a tragic perfect storm based on teenager’s romantic fantasy?

3837

Jeremy Bamber is currently 35 years into of a whole of life sentence for murdering 5 members of his own family.

To this day he claims to be innocent, and on 6 December 2019 Bamber launched a high court challenge to the Crown Prosecution accusing them of failing to disclose material evidence that undermines the safety of his 1986 conviction.


He wants to build a challenge by contesting key pieces of evidence, so in this episode we are revisiting White House Farm to look into his claims.


A massive thank you to ITV for sharing the masses of evidence that they have gathered in the development of their upcoming 6 part drama on this tragic case - it starts Wednesday 8th Jan 2020, on ITV at 9pm.

Check it out, they know what they are doing.

124: Episode 124 - École Polytechnique: The Montreal Massacre
2891

The 6th of December 2019 marks the 30 year anniversary of the Montreal massacre, a dark day in Canadian history. It was the day that gunman Marc Lépine walked into an engineering school and shot dead 14 female students. 

As he shot the women, he exclaimed that he hated feminists, and that feminists had ruined his life. This sentiment was backed up in his manifesto. A manifesto that shares a great number of themes with that of Isla Vista killer Elliot Roger, or the motivations the 2018 Toronto van killer, Alek Minnassian.

But with the continued glorification and martyrdom of the likes of Lépine, Rodger and Minassian - how far have we really come?

In 1988 sisters Ericka and Julie Ingram were at Bible Camp when they were hit with a sudden memory. It was a memory of being sexually abused by their father, Paul Ingram - the Deputy Sheriff of Thurston County in Washington.

3133

In February 2019 in The District Court of New South Wales a woman named Jeni Haynes entered the witness box - but she wasn't alone. 6 different personalities spoke that day through Jeni's body; in a landmark case that saw a person with DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder, formerly referred to as Multiple Personality Disorder) testify in her many alters, and secure a conviction.

This week the ladies cover this truly inspirational story.


Jeni's DID came from the abuse that she had suffered as a child at the hands of her father, Jeni's mind split into over 2000 “self-states” or personalities. These alters were there to protect Jeni - and to this day she is adamant that her DID saved her soul.

Join Suruthi and Hannah as they delve into her astonishing condition, the tragic impact it’s all had on her life and also her brave pursuit of justice.

In May 1999 a scared 14 year old girl walked into a Hong Kong police station and told the confused officers that she was being terrorised by a ghost. At first the police didn’t take her seriously, but then she elaborated that the reason this ghost was haunting her, was because she had helped to torture a young woman named Fan Man-yee to death. The girl then led police to a flat in the city, and what they found there shocked even a nation going through an already unbelievably violent decade...

3448

For weeks 17 year old Hannah Foster had been experiencing an uneasy feeling; she was sure that a strange man was following her. 

Terrifyingly, she wasn’t just imagining things... 

And one night, when Hannah was just yards from her front door, she was abducted. 6 days later her body was found. 

The stellar police investigation that followed quickly identified a suspect, but unbelievably he had already fled the UK and disappeared to India, a nation of over a billion people. Navigating racial tensions and cross nation cooperation meant that bringing Hannah’s killer to justice was not going to be an easy task.

115: Episode 115 - The Yuba 5
3063

In 1978, five men piled into a car after a local basketball game, they stopped at a shop to pick up some snacks and then they vanished. The next day their car was found on a mountain road, without a scratch, half a tank of petrol and in perfect running order. Why would the men have left the car and entered the freezing wilderness?

It wasn’t until the summer that four of the men were found, well at least their bodies were...but the discoveries only deepened the mystery; one of the men was even found in a trailer, surrounded by food - but had seemingly starved to death.

To this day Gary Mathias, man number five, remains missing - leaving us asking the question what happened to the Yuba 5?

114: Episode 114 - “Bishop” Gary Heidnik: The Real-Life Buffalo Bill
3190

Between 1986 and 1987 in Pennsylvania, self-appointed “Bishop” Gary Heidnik abducted six women and held them prisoner in a pit that he’d dug into the floor of his basement. The brutal torture that these women suffered at Heidnik’s hands is incomprehensible - especially when you consider that the entire time Heidnik was running his own church just meters above where these women were trapped.

112: Episode 112 - Gable Tostee: The Fall - Part 1
3932

On August 8, 2014 28 year old Gable Tostee and 26 year old Warriena Wright met for a first date in Surfer’s Paradise on The Gold Coast. The pair had matched on Tinder - and the date was only ever meant to be a casual hook up, so they went straight to Tostee’s 14th floor flat. 

In the early hours of the following morning Warriena plunged to her death from Tostee’s balcony. 

This case truly is a mystery, and normally it would be impossible for anyone to deduce what had happened behind closed doors that night - but unbelievably with this story we have over 3 hours of audio recorded by Tostee himself...

111: Episode 111 - Tortured to Death: Kelly Anne Bates
2838

On the 16th of April 1996 James Patterson Smith walked into Gorton police station and told officers that his 17 year old girlfriend had drowned in the bath. This was of course a lie; Kelly Anne had sustained weeks of torture at the hands of Smith - and her story left even seasoned detectives and pathologists lost for words. So brutal was the crime that it was the first time in Manchester Crown Court that jurors were offered counselling, every single one accepted.


This week’s episode is not for the faint of heart.
