Episode 425: The Clutter Family Murders
01:29:09

In 1959 the state of Kansas was absolutely shocked to find that one of its most prominent and well-liked families, The Clutters, had been murdered. Richard Hickock and Perry Smith, two convicts that had recently been released from prison were the ones responsible. Both had been told by a fellow inmate while incarcerated that the Clutter family had a large amount of cash stashed in a safe on their property. The two broke into the family home and searched for the safe, they then woke up the family when they couldn't find it, tortured and murdered them one by one.

Wondery Presents: Frozen Head
00:03:49

Hosted by Ash Kelley and Alaina Urquhart from the hit show Morbid.

When 90-year-old Laurence Pilgeram drops dead on the sidewalk outside his condo, you might think that’s the end of his story. But, really, it’s just the beginning. Because Laurence and others like him have signed up to be frozen and brought back to life in the future. And that belief will pull multiple generations of the Pilgeram family into a cryonics soap opera filled with dead pets, gold coins, grenades, fist fights, mysterious packages, family feuds, Hall of Fame baseball legends, and frozen heads — lots of frozen heads. From Wondery, comes a story about life, death, and what comes next.

Episode 424: The Horrifying Crimes of Dellen Millard and Mark Smich
01:29:41

Dellen Millard and Mark Smich are two of the world's biggest fuck boys, and unfortunately cold-blooded killers. Dellen, better known as "Dell", had everything in his life served to him on a silver platter and never bothered to finish much of anything. Mark Smich lived a life carrying out petty thefts and selling single cigarettes outside of a high school he no longer went to. The two of these assholes crossed paths due to some catastrophe in the stars and decided that they wanted to steal a truck. Their plan of doing so would lead to murder and an investigation that would uncover several other mysterious deaths.

Episode 422: The Murders of Billy Payne & Billie Jean Hayworth
01:35:01

The murders of Billy Payne and Billie Jean Hayworth were incredibly senseless. The case would end up being dubbed "The Facebook Murders" because of an ongoing feud between the victims and a woman named Jenelle Potter who had moved to their small town years earlier. Strangely enough, all three had been part of the same friend group at one time, but unreciprocated romantic feelings would tear the friend group apart. The case would involve catfishing, manipulation, Facebook.... and even the CIA.

Episode 421: The Torture & Murder of Cordell Richards
01:03:22

On March 4th, 1999 the body of Cordell Richards was found in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. The man had been absolutely brutalized. He was tied to a tree, beaten, burned, and had his throat cut. The medical examiner notices something strange though; he found maggots present at the scene but some of them had been charred. This meant that the man had likely been burned after his body had already begun decomposing. Why would the killer(s) come back after the fact? And better yet, who had done this to the 31 year old father of two?

Episode 418: The Murders of Julie Crocker & Paula Menendez
01:06:56

In February 2007 Christopher Little came home to find a stranger hanging from the rafters in his garage. Things only got worse when he entered his home and found his estranged wife Julie Crocker savagely murdered in their bedroom. Luckily their two young children, who were also in the home, were left unharmed. But who was this stranger in the garage? Had she done this to Julie and then become so distraught afterward that she ended her own life? Chris wasn't sure who she was, but when he was told that the woman was Paula Menendez, ex-wife of Julie's new boyfriend he was pretty sure that was the case. The only problem was that detectives weren't so confident in Chris's assumption and felt like there was something very off about his entire story.

00:55:08

Part two of Theodore Durrant is here and we start off with Blanche Lamont's body being discovered. When you hear the difference between the state of Blanche's body in comparison to Minnie's you will be absolutely baffled. But have no fear, Alaina shares with us a theory as to why both bodies were found in such different states.

Episode 415: Theodore Durrant "The Demon in the Belfry" Part 1
01:00:44

Theodore Durrant was the last person anyone would have assumed to commit a brutal murder, let alone two. He was well-known in town and well-liked. He served the town in countless ways; as the handyman for the church, the handyman to all his friends and neighbors, assistant superintendent of the church's Sunday School and all around friendly and giving man. But soon he would be linked to two absolutely horrific murders of two young women in town that he'd had relations with. Ones body would be discovered in the church that Theo seemed to love and the other? Well you'll have to wait for part two for that discovery.

Pamela Vitale was an unstoppable woman who could do quite literally anything she put her mind to.

Episode 410: The Murder of Sophie Toscan du Plantier
01:23:48

Just two days before Christmas in 1996 the body of 39 year old, french filmmaker, wife, daughter and mother Sophie Toscan Du Plantier was found not far from her vacation home. Her cottage in Schull was supposed to be her happy getaway, but would soon turn into an absolute nightmare. This was a classic tale of a tight knit community that was absolutely shocked, terrified and deeply saddened by this heinous crime. Unfortunately the investigation was a shaky one which led to two countries and families arguing back and forth. In the end, even though someone was convicted, there were still doubts and no one has been put behind bars to serve a sentence for Sophie’s murder. 


Thank you to the glorious David White for research assistance on this case!

Episode 407: The Yorkshire Ripper Part 4
01:06:56

We've reached a conclusion here folks, and by the end of this Peter will be apprehended. First though, there were more fuck ups to be made in the investigation. More and more evidence headquarters were set up across various areas only leading to important information being completely looked over. Peter was also spoken to several more times, but really why was he? The investigators didn't even check up on his alibis. Then one night in 1981 Peter picked up a woman he intended to kill and little did he know she would be the one to end it all.

Part three of The Yorkshire Ripper gets even more brutal than the first 2 episodes. Peter Sutcliffe is really starting to ramp things up. He's getting more violent, more theatrical, and more brazen as the minutes pass. The police will end up speaking to Peter for the second time in this installment (although it certainly won't be the last time) and local news outlets will start receiving Jack The Ripper letters regarding the murders. Hang on tight, the fourth and final episode will be hitting your ear meat next episode!!!

Episode 404: The Yorkshire Ripper Part 2
01:11:20

Part two of the Yorkshire Rippers, unfortunately, includes many many more murders and Peter Sutcliffe continuing to evade law enforcement. So many women had to lose their lives and still, Peter seemed untouchable. We also discuss the unbelievable way this case was handled in the press and how the victims were treated as well.

Luckily, toward the end of this episode, you’ll hear that Peter started to lose it a bit, and made some stupid (but lucky for us) mistakes. Law enforcement would get a bit of a clue that led straight to Peter, but would it be enough to stop him in his tracks and arrest him right there on the spot? Well, you’re about to find out!

Episode 403: The Yorkshire Ripper Part 1
01:27:50

Peter Sutcliffe, who would later become known as the Yorkshire Ripper, is probably one of the gnarlier serial killers we have covered. Throughout the 70’s he terrorized the streets of Yorkshire, brutally assaulting and murdering women he believed to be sex workers. In part one Alaina explains to us how he slowly became this monster, his first attacks and ends on a survivor that would eventually help lead the police to Peter. In part two, unfortunately there are more attacks and murders to tell but have no fear, this sadistic killer would eventually be stopped.

Alaina brings us something a little different this week, BOG BODIES! All across the world in different bogs, bodies have been found almost perfectly preserved. All because of a simple little landscaping tool: Peat Moss. And your peat moss might just be haunted. Alaina tells us of 9 different Bog Bodies that have been discovered throughout the years, one of which landed a murderer in prison for the rest of his life. And if you love this episode, don’t worry there are plenty more Bog Bodies to be covered in the future.

Episode 400: The Murder of Molly McLaren
01:25:17

Molly McLaren was just starting out at University when she met Joshua Stimpson via tinder. The two of them seemed to have a lot in common and hit it off instantly. Josh told Molly that she was his first real girlfriend, and that was comforting to her because he was her first serious relationship. In all reality Josh was lying, he had dated women in the past and actually terrorized many of them. Molly would soon learn that he was a dangerous individual, and took all the right steps to get away from him. But he was a vile, sick and twisted individual who simply couldn’t handle hearing “no.” from a woman.

Episode 397: The Murder of Sherri Rasmussen
01:18:41

In 1986 Sherri Rasmussen was brutally murdered in her own home. She was a young nurse who had already worked her way to becoming the director of nursing at Glendale Adventist Medical Center and had just gotten married three months earlier. But when her husband John returned home on February 24th, 1986 he found her laying dead on their living room floor and their home absolutely ransacked. Was this a case of robbery gone wrong or was someone in a position of power responsible?

Episode 389: The Murder of Ali Kamel Fahmy Bey
01:38:54

Marguerite Alibert was a woman set on getting what she wanted out of life. She was raised a very poor girl and was sent away from her family at a very young age to go and live with the Sisters of Mary. When she became pregnant at 16 and lost the job they had set up for her she was left all alone in the world and had to turn to sex work to make a living. She ended up being one of the most popular and desired courtesans in Paris, but that reputation would not remain spotless for long. Soon Marguerite, after scamming multiple men… like Prince Edward VIII, would meet a young Egyptian “Prince.” Their life was set up to be picture perfect, but all was not as it seemed. Just six months into their marriage, one of them would end up murdered.

Episode 383: The Framing of Kelli Peters
01:20:59

For this episode of Morbid Ash has a bit of a different tale for us. This is the case of Kelli Peters; a mom, the PTA president, and framed woman. The afternoon of February 17th 2010 started off so normal for Kelli. She pulled into the school she’d been volunteering at for years and started getting to work with the kids. Out of nowhere, Kelli’s afternoon took a turn. She was called to the office where a police officer waited for her, and when she got there he wanted to know whether or not he could search her car. When he did he uncovered a ceramic pipe, 17 grams of pot, 11 percocet pills and 29 vicodin pills. But for the first time in probably the history of ever, the drugs really weren't Kelli’s. She had been framed.

You thought Alaina was done with Jack the Ripper but you were wrong…like really wrong. In this episode she’ll deliver us YET ANOTHER possible suspect and also the supposed diary of Jack the Ripper.

Episode 379: The Tragic Case of Florence Maybrick
01:17:08

Today Alaina brings us the case of Florence Maybrick and asks that we decide whether or not this woman was guilty of murder. Florence’s husband James was known to have a tummy trouble or two, but in May of 1889 those troubles progressed much further and James ended up dead. Immediately, suspicion was placed on Florence and many wondered whether James had actually succumbed to some kind of illness, or if it was Florence that was behind the sudden death. Had she poisoned her husband?

A cult was born and all kinds of wild things were going on, but what would be the most wild was the unexpected end of the cults ~Earthly Spiritual Father~ Jim Baker.

Michael Alig, or you may know him better as Party Monster, was crowned king of the Club Kids back in the late 80’s/early 90’s. You may have heard of the club kids, some famous examples today are Bjork, Amanda Lepore, and Ru Paul. They ruled the streets of Manhattan when the streetlights came on and partied the night away. Michael would throw these elaborate parties with crazy performers, wild themes and loads of drugs but it wouldn’t take long for the Club Kid scene to come crashing down to the ground. By the end two club kids would become murderers and one of their own, Angel Melendez would be the one killed.

Episode 353: Justice For Katie Palmer
01:37:26

On the morning of April 21st John Palmer and his wife Katie decided to start their day off with a nice walk together before the craziness of their day to day ensued. They didn’t know that one of their neighbors would also be out that morning, driving his F-250, impaired to say the least. Katie and John were both hit by that man, Cory Todd Foster. John suffered serious injuries that left him in the ICU and unfortunately, Katie was killed in the crash. Cory Todd Foster, who has a 20 year history of vehicular crimes including DWI, reckless driving and speeding faced absolutely no charges.

A huge thank you to John Palmer for speaking to us about Katie's life and the injustice surrounding her death.

There are so many injustices in this case that will leave you infuriated, but the fight is not over. There will be justice for Katie Palmer, and all of us can have a hand in helping. For more information and updates on Katie’s case these are the best links:

Was it Mabel Normand who had been at his home just minutes before he was killed, or could it have been Mary Miles Minter and her crazy Stage Mom ™ Charlotte Shelby? OR could it have been the woman who confessed with her dying breath? Decide for yourself and let us know what you think!

01:33:09

Jack the Ripper part 4 is here weirdos! This installment will cover the horrific, and most brutal murder yet: the murder of Mary Jane Kelly. Mary Jane was the youngest victim at just twenty five years old and the only victim that was killed in her own room. When the police arrived on scene they were shocked, but still not any closer to uncovering the identity of the ripper. OH and also, Alaina has some HOT TAKES on the letters we went over in part 3.

Episode 346: Jack the Ripper Part 3
02:20:03

Jack the Ripper Part three will cover what is known as, “the double event.” Both Elizabeth Stride and Catherine Eddowes were found killed on this September night. Both women shared a lot in common with the previous two victims. They’d struggled through pretty much their entire lives just to make ends meet and then were met with this as their end. In this part we’ll start to entertain the theory that Jack perhaps had some kind of medical background and you’ll see just why one might think so once you dive into the episode!

Episode 344: Jack the Ripper Part 2
01:31:22

Jack the Ripper part two brings us the absolutely horrifying murder of Annie Chapman. Annie’s story, much like the rest of the women who were killed, is incredibly devastating. She was struggling with sobriety when she landed on the shady streets in Spitalfields in the East end and was having a terrible time trying to find work to just get by. Robert Anderson, the head of the criminal investigations department was still on vacation, Sir Charles Warren’s ego stepped on the scene and they were not even one step closer to uncovering the culprits identity.

Episode 343: Jack the Ripper Part 1
01:23:26

Alaina takes us to the streets of Whitechapel for part one of Jack The Ripper, and boy is it a stark picture she’s painting us. Whitechapel was dark, damp, dirty and downright desolate at the time Jack The Ripper was roaming the streets. People were living in all kinds of horrible conditions, butchers and slaughterhouse workers were walking around covered in blood and because things were like this, it made the perfect stomping ground for a vicious murderer. Mary Ann "Polly" Nichols was the Ripper’s first victim and the main person that we’ll go over in part one while Alaina also gives us a background on a couple of other potential early victims. Stay tuned for (we’re thinkin’) three more!

Episode 342: The Disappearance of Heidi Allen Part 2
01:15:45

Heidi Allen disappeared on Easter morning back in 1994 from the convenient store she’d worked at for years. Her car was still parked in the parking lot when police arrived, her purse, keys and jacket were all behind the counter and there was still money on the counter and in the register, tipping off the police that this was not a crime motivated by robbery. The police began to look into two men after receiving a few tips and were pretty sure that they had the right guys… but did they? In part two we’ll go over some new information that has been released over the years that has led to new theories. Unfortunately none of these claims have ever led to finding Heidi. If you have any information regarding this case or any information regarding Heidi Allen’s whereabouts you can call the Oswego Police Department: 888-349-3411

Episode 340: Following Up The Loretta Jones Case With Heidi Jones-Asay
00:41:00

We got the chance to sit down and chat with Heidi Jones-Asay, who helped solve her mother’s 46 year old murder. Heidi was just 4 years old when her mother was brutally murdered in their own home. From that night forward Heidi tried over and over again to tell the police who was responsible but there just wasn’t enough evidence. We covered Loretta Jones Murder in episode 335 if you would like to listen to that first to hear the outcome. Getting to chat with Heidi was an absolute delight, and who better to weigh in on this subject than someone who lived it themselves. Thank you Heidi :)

Episode 338: Interview with Defense Attorney and Author of BONE DEEP, Joel Schwartz
00:57:15

You might remember episodes 287 and 288 when we covered the Betsy Faria case. Betsy was found dead in her home just two days after Christmas in 2011. Immediately suspicion fell on her husband Russ Faria, even though there was evidence pointing in the direction of one of Betsy’s friends, Pam Hupp. We got to sit down with one of the authors of Bone Deep, the first and only book on this case Joel Schwartz. Joel was Russ Faria’s defense attorney in both of his trials and ultimately got Russ exonerated. Joel was an absolute pleasure to have on the show and we hope you enjoy his one of a kind insight on this case!

Episode 337: The Greenbriar Ghost
01:13:43

This case is the first and only time in U.S history that evidence from a ghost was admissible in the murder trial. Elva Zona Heaster Shue was married to the blacksmith in town, Erasmus “Edward” Stribbling Trout Shue. At first he seemed like a wonderful guy: charming, had good stories to tell, wooed her off her feet. Then as soon as they were married, things changed drastically and in the coming months more would be found out about this Edward character and more about Zona’s death.

Episode 335: Solving The Decades Old Murder of Loretta Jones
01:06:23

Loretta Jones was brutally murdered in her own Utah home back in 1970, all while her four year old daughter, Heidi was in the next room. Heidi knew all along who had killed her mother, she would try to tell the police herself and her grandmother would try to reiterate Heidi’s message as well but the police in the original investigation never considered Heidi a witness. Because of that and a lack of urgency, they were never able to get Tom put away for murder. Heidi never gave up on seeking out justice for her mother and 46 years later, because of Heidi and some great detective work, Loretta Jones murder would be solved.

Well this started as a regular Listener Tale episode where we had a handful of great stories to tell you. What it turned into is an epic journey through one listener's truly harrowing experience in a very haunted home. Brad gets the spotlight today as he brings us through "The happenings" in an old house on a hill. There are deaths, demonic growls, entrapments, creatures hiding in the crawlspace and straight up teleportation (we think? Let us know, Pookie). ENJOY! This was a great tale and we are so thankful Brad shared it with all of us!

Episode 330: The Tragic Murder of Savanna LaFontaine Greywind
01:22:18

Savanna LaFontaine Greywind was about to enter such an exciting time of life. She had just gotten a new job, was working on getting a new apartment with her longtime boyfriend and the two of them together were getting ready to welcome their sweet baby girl, Haisley Jo into the world. Unfortunately, two human garbage piles of muck would take Savanna's life and attempt to take her baby as well. Savanna and her family are Native American people and Savanna's story is sadly another example of how often Indigenous and Native American people, specifically women, are treated and how their stories are not covered in mainstream media. To help fight against this here are some websites with calls to action that we can all get ourselves involved in. If you're so inclined, we thought it would be a nice sentiment to donate to any of the places available via these sites and to do so in Savanna's name

Episode 329: The Many Crimes of Serial Killer John Christie with Special Guest
01:34:03

Today we have someone special on the pod! It's John! Alaina's husband is filling in for Ash today while she recovers from being sick. What a trooper this guy is. 

John Christie was a notorious serial killer who stalked, raped and murdered women in the UK during the 1940s and 1950s. His methods were torturous and horrifying. But what makes him even scarier was his ability to lie with ease and to ward off suspicion, even allowing someone else to take the ultimate blame for some of his heinous deeds. This monster will have you asking a lot of questions even after the trial is done.

Episode 328: The Circleville Letter Writer
01:09:22

The Circleville Letter writer is a case that will absolutely baffle your brain. In 1976 one of the first letters was delivered to Mary Gillespie and it accused her of being one of the many women supposedly having an affair with the superintendent of schools, Gordon Massie. The letters would continue to be sent, not only to Mary, but to most of the residents and business owners in the town. The letter writer seemed to know everything about everyone and would stop at nothing to take down the people they thought were morally wrong…. As if sending intimidating letters across a city is a moral thing to do. By the end of this a possibly innocent man would be sent to prison, another man would end up dead and Mary would survive an attempt on her life.

In 1991 a group of young men met by happenstance working the local carnivals together. They were Jimmie Penick, Mark Goodwin, brothers David and Keith Lawrence and William “Tony” Ault. Everyone but the latter boy already knew each other, they had long been interested in invoking the powers of satan and decided to start a cult together under the name, Satan’s Disciples. When William “Tony” Ault met them at the carnival he realized that they had some things in common and just really wanted to be part of their group. Unfortunately William would not make it through what his new friends called the “initiation process.” Instead they would torture and kill the 21 year old.

We’re heading on over to Salem in the middle of this fine week to bring you the case of Captain Joseph White. Captain White was simply not a good man, he owned slaves, he had improper relations with his family and he was just generally disliked. When the niece that he was having “relations” with decided to up and marry someone other than him he was PISSED and took her out of the will. That will would become one of the main reasons the man was killed, but in the end (like every murder) it would be all for naught.

It was supposed to celebrate one of Roscoe’s latest roles and be a great time with all kinds of young and happenin’ celebrities but by the end of the night one party-goer, a rising star Virginia Rappe, would end up incredibly ill and would later die in the hospital from something that may or may not have happened to her at this party.

Chris Pritchard, James “Bart” Upchurch and Neal Henderson all sat around for weeks on end trying to figure out the best way to kill Chris’s family and get away with it, all so that they could spend their days loafing around and not have to get real jobs or continue on with college. In the end, after multiple plans that didn’t work, only one member of Chris’s family members would end up dead; his stepfather Leith Von Stein. But who would take the fall?

Episode 319: The Somerton Man Part 1
01:10:58
The Somerton Man case is one that has confounded Australia for almost 75 years now. It all started when an unidentifiable man was found dead on Somerton Beach. The man had no wallet, no form of ID, there was no name written inside of his clothing as would have been typical for the time. And it seemed like all of this was on purpose. Things in the case only got stranger when a tiny rolled up piece of paper was found in a hidden fob pocket in the man's jacket. The words on the paper read “Tamam Shud” and were later determined to have been ripped out of a book of poetry written in the 11th century: The Rubaiyat. In part one we’ll dip our toes into the mystery and in part two Ash will be taking everyone to the deep end of the pool for a serious dive into who the heck this man could possibly be and what the heck happened to him.

Episode 318: The Horrific Murder of Katy Hawelka Part 2
01:42:11
In part two of the Horrific Murder of Katy Hawelka we pick right back up where we left off with Brian McCarthy, a complete and utter waste of space, sitting at the police department wasting everyone’s time with made up stories about what happened the night Katy was attacked. Luckily by the end of his interrogation Brian was arrested and confessed. The rest of the episode covers the incredible determination Katy’s family had throughout the legal process and a glimpse into exactly why they should not have to suffer through parole hearings for this monster every two years.

If you feel so inclined after listening to the episode, which we hope you do, please sign this petition to deny Brian McCarthy’s parole. SIGN HERE

Episode 317: The Horrific Murder of Katy Hawelka Part 1
01:14:25
It was August 1986 when Katherine “Katy” Hawelka started her second year at Clarkson University. She was 19 years old and looking forward to the start of classes and reuniting with her college pals. As a bright, kind and hard-working young woman, she was set to set the world on fire. Her mother and sister (who was her best friend) dropped her off on campus and after settling in Katy went out with some friends. Unfortunately Katy would never make it to the start of classes. Her precious life she would cut short when she was brutally attacked and sexually assaulted by a monster named Brian McCarthy.

Please consider signing this petition to keep Brian McCarthy from receiving parole. Katy's family has to go before the board every 24 months to keep their daughter's killer behind bars:

Episode 314: The Mysterious Disappearance of Dorothy Arnold Part 1
01:16:23
Dorothy Arnold was a 25 year-old New York socialite from a prominent family back in 1910. One day, in broad daylight on fifth avenue, she seemingly vanished into thin air. No evidence, no packed bags and nothing to say what happened to her. Her family took some weird steps in the days and months after her disappearance all in the name of keeping their social standing. This is really just a case that makes you go, “hmmm…” And it's just the beginning.

Episode 312: Matthew Hoffman AKA The Leaf Killer Part 2
01:40:34
When we left off in part one, Matthew Hoffman had tied Sarah Maynard up so that he could take a nap after brutally killing three of her loved ones. Part two picks up with Matthew clean up the scene while keeping Sarah locked in his cold, dark basement where she was left to sit on a makeshift bed made from, you guessed it....leaves. While Matthew was working on the rest of his plan, like burning down the home, the police were working behind the scenes and luckily able to rescue Sarah. 

Case begins at 11mins 30 seconds because we had a philosophical discussion about not letting toxic shit into your bubble. We understand some people may want to skip! :)

Episode 311: Matthew Hoffman AKA The Leaf Killer
01:20:55
Matthew John Hoffman was a strange guy. He was in a constant flux of being a quiet, yet unassuming guy to then having bouts of strange and off-putting behavior. It was his love of trees that gave him comfort and seemed to keep him settled at times, but on November 9, 2010 he broke into a quiet home in Apple Valley, Ohio, brutally taking the lives of Tina Hermann, her 11 year old son Kody and her best friend Stephanie Sprang, before leaving with 13 year old Sarah Maynard in his clutches. 

Soon, Hoffman's obsession with trees would become the defining piece of this killer's pathology. In Part 1, we discuss his puzzling history, the lives of Tina, Kody and Stephanie, and the house of horrors he brought Sarah back to.

Your Magic presents Satanism
00:29:20
In this episode, we present to your earholes some beautiful, whimsical and wonderful friends of the pod Your Magic. 

Today, Your Magic pulls back the curtain on the many misconceptions about Satanism. Exploring demon conjurings (spoiler...they can be kinda cute!) and the beef between the Temple of Satan and the Church of Satan. Meeting three different types of Satanists- atheistic, theistic and satanic witches- we mostly learn that the devil is our friend. Plus, we dive into the meaning of The Devil card with Hannah Graves, creator of Cult Mother Tarot, learning how to work with its dark and disciplinary energy.  

Your Magic is a podcast hosted by author Michelle Tea. Every episode explores contemporary spirituality and magic with lots of humor and heart. Usually, they read their guests tarot – including people like Kathryn Hahn, Japanese Breakfast, Phoebe Bridgers, and so many other amazing people and then offer a DIY spell or ritual that anyone can do. But, in this episode – the host Michelle Tea dives deep into Satanism, the Satanic Church and the Satanic Temple and explores what it actually looks like to worship Satan.

Episode 309: The Wonderland Murders Part 1
00:57:07
The Wonderland Murders, or The Four on the Floor case is a case from the old days of Hollywood. It’s not the kind of old Hollywood case that Ash usually delivers, this one instead is a totally different take. The Wonderland Gang was made up of a group of people you definitely would not want to mess with, however one of the key players in this case, John Holmes did just that. He got on the bad side of the gang and had to come up with a way to get back in their good graces. Unfortunately that plan would lead to one of the most gruesome mass murders the police had seen since the Tate-LaBianca murders.

Episode 307: The Grotesque Murders of Joel and Lisa Guy
01:16:37
Lisa and Joel Guy Sr. were said to be loving, kind hearted and passionate people. The two of them had raised a family together and at 55 and 61 years old were ready to retire. One caveat with their plan was that they were still providing for their grown son Joel Guy Jr. They had plans to tell him that he was going to need to start supporting himself around Christmas. Unfortunately they would not be able to celebrate their next Christmas. Their only son would brutally murder them in their home on Thanksgiving weekend.

Episode 306: The St. Osyth Witch Trials
01:14:21

Alaina brings us the true story of the The St Osyth Witch trials this week. It all starts with a "naughty named" woman, Ursula, potentially causing the lameness of another woman called Grace. Causing the lameness of another was grounds for being charged with the very serious felony of Witchcraft, and really it all went downhill from there. In the end fourteen were accused, two were hanged and many more died in prison. 

The book and pamphlet used as a source for the case: 

England's Witchcraft Trials by Willow Winsham 

A true and iust recorde, of the information, examination and confession of all the witches, taken at S. Ofes in the countie of Essex whereof some were executed, and other some entreated according to the determination of lawe. Wherein all men may see what a pestilent people witches are, and how vnworthy to lyue in a Christian Commonwealth. Written orderly, as the cases were tryed by euidence, by W. W

Episode 302: Albert Fish Part 1
01:13:24
This is such a highly requested case that Alaina decided to take one for the team and dive deep into the world that was Albert Fish. Albert Fish had an incredibly abusive childhood starting from when he was 5 years old and had to be placed into an orphanage. He experienced all kinds of torture and abuse and it was there that he realized he was aroused by not only the pain he was suffering but the pain inflicted upon others. In part one we’ll cover Fish’s first crimes, including his first murder which was the brutal slaying of Francis McDonnell, an eight year old boy.

01:13:01
Ash hadn’t done an old Hollywood case in a while, so upon finding this one dove right in! Christa Helm was born in Milwaukee but knew that she was destined for a life much bigger. She would tell anyone who would listen that she wanted to be a star and no one doubted her ability to get there. Christa moved out to Hollywood to make it big, and while she had some success along the way, the biggest story surrounding Christa would be her murder. Unfortunately Christa’s murder still remains unsolved but it is a wild ride trying to make sense of it all!

Episode 299: The Horrific Murder of Dorothy Eggers
01:20:40
When Arthur Eggers walked into the police station to report his wife Dorothy missing, there were a few things about his story that just didn’t quite add up. He had her height off by about 5 inches and he said he was reporting her missing even though he knew she most likely ran off with a truck driver (!!!!) The police were quite concerned though, because they had an unidentified, HEADLESS body, and now they were thinking it could be Arthur’s wife. This tale will take you on so many different rides, you know what to do. Hold on. To. Your. Butts and potentially your food coloring.

Gather round weirdos, lend an ear and get HELLA STOKED because we got the chance to sit down with the creators and stars of the latest Scream!! In this episode we’re not only joined by Radio Silence’s Tyler Gillett, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Chad Villella, but with legacy cast member David Arquette and the insanely talented new star Melissa Barrera who stars in the latest film. We got to ask them about the creation of the film, David shares a fond memory with the one and only Wes Craven and we got to hear their thoughts on some burning questions we had for the future of the franchise. Hold onto your butts, and never run up the stairs instead of going out the front door… It's insulting.

Episode 298: The Murder of Abraham Shakespeare
01:35:22
In November of 2006 a man named Abraham Shakespeare won the lottery jackpot worth $31 million. Abraham was known as a generous, kind man who would do anything to help his friends, family or children out. Unfortunately a cold-blooded, manipulative woman by the name of Dee Dee Moore would make the acquaintance of Abraham Shakespeare and swindle him out of his millions. Before long, people stopped hearing from Abraham, and some feared the worst. Was he murdered or simply trying to get away from the pressure of it all?

Episode 296: James Rodney Hicks Part 1
01:11:54
In 1977 Jennie Hicks seemingly vanished from her home in Carmel Maine, leaving her two children behind with her husband James Hicks... at least that was James’ story. Those who knew Jennie were adamant that there was no way she would have left her children, especially not with her husband who was known to physically abuse her. When law enforcement didn’t seem interested in actually investigating Jennie’s disappearance that left James free to do as he pleased, and a few years later would leave another young mother missing and presumed dead.

Episode 295: The Mary Morris Murders
00:51:02
The Mary Morris Murders, as they’re often referred to, are some of the most baffling murders that we’ve come across thus far. Two women, both named Mary Morris were murdered in Houston Texas just days apart from each other. The first woman Mary Lou Henderson Morris didn’t have an enemy in the world but was found murdered in one of the most gruesome manners possible. When Mary McGinnis Morris was found murdered just days later people thought that these cases must be connected. For the last 22 years, no one has been able to decide on an outcome.

Episode 293: Where is Brandon Swanson? Part 1
00:55:24
Brandon Swanson was 19 years old when he went missing in the state of Minnesota. He had been out earlier that night and gone to a couple of parties before making his way home to Marshall, Minnesota. Unfortunately, on the way home, he ran into a bit of car trouble when his car veered a bit off the side of a gravel road and got stuck in a ditch. He called his parents for help and explained exactly where he was but when they got there Brandon was nowhere to be seen and neither was his car. This case is truly one of the most bizarre we’ve covered to date and sadly, there is a lack of any closure involved.

Episode 292: The Antifreeze Murders
01:06:50
Stacey Castor is most often referred to as a Black Widow, but that name barely does justice when it comes to all of the pain Stacey inflicted on those around her. Both of her husbands turned up dead, one of a heart attack and the other of suicide and then years later her daughter was rushed to the hospital, mere minutes away from death herself. When the puzzle pieces started to fit together they showed an image of a deranged murderer who would stop at next to nothing to be painted as a grieving wife and mother, just down on her luck.

Episode 291: The Purrington Massacre
01:07:19
The story of the Purrington murders is so horrific it sounds like something out of a movie. James Purrington seemed to have plans of killing himself after suffering from what was likely undiagnosed mental illness. When one of his children brought this to the attention of their mother and his wife, he said he had no intention of killing himself at all, just typical worries about his family after a long grueling summer and a bad drought. His wife seemed to be settled for the time being, but soon almost the entire family would be found axed to death in their home, and James Purrington would be discovered lying dead on the kitchen floor.

Episode 290: The Tragic Murder of Phil Hartman
01:24:58
This is the story of Phil Hartman and the episode is a little different than some we’ve done in the past. We all know Ash loves an “Old Hollywood” kind of case, this one while not very old at all fits under the umbrella. Phil Hartman was one of the most beloved comedians of all times, often referred to as, “The Man of 1000 voices.” When you dive into his life as a whole you find all kinds of hidden gems, like the fact that Phil had a run in with Jimi Hendrix, and so many more little anecdotes like that! Unfortunately, Phil was taken from this world far too soon and in such a horrific way.

Episode 289: The Swamp Angel
01:07:42
This is the tale of Helen Ruth Spence, who grew up with the River People on The White River in Arkansas. When Helen was just 17 years old her father was shot and killed in front of her and her stepmother was beaten and assaulted by the same man. Helen had her own way of carrying out justice which landed her in and out of prison. The prisons at this time were deplorable and we don’t even know about all of the punishments Helen underwent. What we do know will shock you to your core. Helen's story is truly unlike any other.

Episode 287: The Murder of Betsy Faria Part 1
01:07:45
Betsy Faria was known to her friends and family as such a beautiful soul. She had life-long friends who just loved to be around her because she always loved to have a good time and make those around her feel happy and loved. In addition to all those amazing friends, Betsy had a husband and two beautiful daughters who loved her endlessly. When she was diagnosed with Cancer all of those friends and family banded around her to make sure she had all the support she needed. One of those friends, Pam Hupp, took a special interest in taking care of Betsy. In fact, she was the last person to see Betsy alive. Not because Betsy had passed from Cancer, but because two days after Christmas on December 27, 2011, Betsy Faria was found stabbed to death in her own home.

Episode 282: Murder in the House of Gucci
00:59:13
Father, Son, House of Gucci!! That’s right baby, Ash did a deep dive into all things Gucci for this episode. Gucci as a company was founded in 1921 in Florence Italy by Guccio Gucci. Over the years the family business was passed through generations and eventually ended up solely in the hands of Maurizio Gucci. Unfortunately in 1995 Maurizio Gucci was killed by a hired hitman. Who hired said hitman? Gucci’s ex-wife Patrizia Reggiani. #AMereBowlOfLentils

Episode 280: The "TallHotBlond" Murder
01:07:24
The Internet, a place where you can be whoever you want to be, whether it’s your true identity or an alter ego you’ve made up. For some people, this is chatting in online rooms with different screennames pretending to be their favorite character or someone they admire. In 2005 for a man named Thomas Montgomery it was darker than that. Thomas Montgomery was 46 years old when an 18-year-old under the screenname “TallHotBlond” messaged him. Instead of revealing who he truly was, Thomas pretended to be an 18-year-old marine named Tommy and the pair started their online affair. Eventually, their affair would leave someone dead and leave everyone else untangling a web of lies.

Episode 278: William Bonin "The Freeway Killer" Part 1
00:50:29
William Bonin, who was also known as the Freeway Killer, raped and killed potentially over 36 young boys throughout his reign of terror. William had a deplorable childhood: his mother was neglectful and abusive, his father was a raging alcoholic who gambled all the families money away and his grandfather was a pedophile who sexually assaulted both William and his brothers. William’s backstory is heartbreaking, but unfortunately he did nothing to turn it around and continued the cycle of abuse, but escelated it to the nth degree.

Episode 276: The Murder of Nona Dirksmeyer
01:27:55
Nona Dirksmeyer was just 19 years old when her boyfriend, Kevin, found her late on the afternoon of December 15, 2005. She and Kevin Jones were high school sweethearts who had been dating for 5 years. There was never anything in their relationship that would hint at Kevin having a temper or flying off the handle, but immediately all suspicion landed on him. You won’t believe how botched the crime scene was and will be shocked when you hear that the person who may have done this had been lurking in the shadows the whole time.

Episode 275: Susan Monica
00:55:21
Susan Monica was a farmer in her 60’s with her very own property where she raised chickens and pigs and worked on beautiful wrought iron fences. She had made it through much of her life flying under the radar. That was until one of the handymen on her farm, Robert Haney disappeared without a trace. The last anyone knew of his whereabouts was that he was living in a camper on Susan’s property. During the search for Robert, Susan told the police had something to confess- not only about Robert’s disappearance but another mans as well. She drew a map for the detectives with an “X” in the middle telling them, “That’s where you’re going to find Steve.”

00:52:39
Alaina brings us the case of Mark Branch who killed Sharon Gregory on the afternoon of October 24th 1988 in Greenfield Massachusetts. Mark was obsessed with horror movies, specifically the Friday the 13th franchise and really took that to a horrifying place the day he killed Sharon Gregory. It would be over a month before they found Mark, who went on the run after the murder. All of the happenings in this case are truly something out of a horror film.

Episode 273: The Winchester Mystery House (Separating Fact From Fiction)
00:57:07
The Winchester Mystery House is a tale that’s been told countless times. The house is featured on tons and tons of Top 10 haunted lists and over the years the house has become the focal point of the lore. We felt it was really important to tell the story not only of the house but of the woman who created it: Sarah Pardee Winchester. There were countless details that we didn’t realize about her or the house and through our research, we really began tearing back the layers of this story! Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Morbid Network presents: A chat with Spencer Henry & Madison Reyes from OBITCHUARY(Special Episode Sneak Peek!)
00:40:27
Hey weirdos! We want to allow you to get to know our little family here on Morbid Network, so we decided to start a special interview series where we chat with the hosts of these handpicked shows and let you get to know why we love their guts! With these special episodes, you also get a sneak preview of their latest episode to really wet your whistle to dive into a new pod. Yes, that was a disgusting sentence but that's who we are.

Today, we chat with two people who everyone deserves to know and love, Spencer Henry and Madison Reyes. We feel so lucky to have these two beautiful Luna moths on our network and their show OBITCHUARY is unlike anything you have ever allowed into your ear holes. Not only will you get scathing, hilarious and sometimes really dark obituaries, but you will also get some bizarre history and true crime tidbits along the way. They are truly delightful and you will want them to be your best friends too.
We chatted about how expensive it is to tell someone you hate them in death, the cosmic way they became besties and so much more.
Come on in, friends. The water is truly hilarious.

Episode 272: The Villisca Axe Murders Part 2
01:16:42
In part two of The Villisca Axe Murders Alaina goes DEEP into the many suspects involved in the case. We’ve got a lot of crazy characters this time around. Turns out Josiah Moore had a mistress who was linked to one of his enemies, there’s also a detective who turns up with nefarious intentions, and finally blame gets shifted to a potential serial killer in the area. And of course to finish things off we’ll get into the haunting of the home which includes a pretty recent life threatening event.

Episode 271: The Villisca Axe Murders Part 1
01:26:51
If you know true crime then you know The Villisca Axe Murders. In 1912 an entire family and two house guests were brutally killed in their sleep by a cold blooded beast. There have been a couple suspects over the years, but somehow this case remains officially unsolved. The details are spine chilling, but the case itself is one of the most fascinating.

Episode 270: Jodi Arias
01:01:16
Jodi Arias and Travis Alexander met in September of 2006 and from day one they were hooked on each other. Their relationship started getting toxic when Jodi became overly possessive and started listening in on Travis’s conversations when he was unaware. Travis broke things off with Jodi but the two of them never really stopped seeing each other, even when Jodi’s toxic behaviour was in full bloom. Unfortunately things escalated in June 2008 and Jodi murdered Travis in his own home. The details involved in this case are truly mind boggling.

Episode 268: The Railroad Killer
01:13:03
As promised, we are talking today about the serial killer from Episode 266. In that episode, we focused on the only survivor of his crimes, Holly Dunn. Today, we take a walk through all of his crimes.  Throughout the 80's and 90's, Angel Maturino Resendiz was one of the most brutal killers the United States had ever seen. Known by the media as the Railroad Killer, he stalked victims nears railroad tracks before brutally butchering them either next to the tracks or in their own homes. His mode of operation involved sexual assault and a gruesome amount of overkill. He moved freely between his home in Mexico and the States before finally being caught through fingerprints and SNA. After a reign of terror that was as prolific as it was terrorizing, he was fortunately coerced into turning himself into authorities in 1999.

Episode 267: The Unexplained Death of Ellen Rae Greenberg
00:58:17
Today Ash brings you the truly infuriating case of Ellen Greenberg. Ellen was a beautiful, caring 27 year old woman who had everything going for her. She had a great relationship with her family and friends, a  job as a first grade teacher, and plans to marry her fiance Sam in the coming months. There was no indication that Ellen was struggling with suicidal thoughts, yet somehow on January 26th 2011 when she was discovered dead on her kitchen floor after suffering 20+ stab wounds, her death was ruled a suicide.

Episode 266: The Unbelievable Survival Story of Holly K. Dunn
01:06:04
Alaina brings us the tale of Holly K Dunn who survived a brutal attack at the hands of an evil, deranged man. Holly’s survival tale is incredibly inspiring but also heartbreaking because through it she lost an amazing boyfriend, Chris Maier. Chris Maier and Holly had recently begun dating and were just enjoying an evening stroll by a set of railroad tracks when a man came out of the dark in front of them and attacked them. What Holly didn’t find out for two years was that this man was one of the most notorious serial killers.

Some say the Jean Harlow house where she lived with her husband Paul Bern is one of the most haunted homes in America. The house certainly saw its fair share of tragedy and deaths which we’ll cover in this episode. You might be shocked to find out the house even has a connection to the Manson family!

Episode 264: The New England Vampire Panic
01:00:42

Today Alaina decided to take it to a vampiric place. During the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries New England was struggling with severe outbreaks of Consumption.  To better explain this plague that caused severe pain, bloody hacking coughs and the victim to seemingly waste away without explanation, they turned to the supernatural. When entire families began falling victim to its brutal clutches, it simply had to be vampires who had taken host in their loved ones ailing bodies to suck the life from the remaining members. Come on in for a dive into a world where eating the ashes of an exhumed family member's decomposing heart was considered medicine.

Episode 263: The Murder of Mackenzie Cowell
01:00:39
Mackenzie Cowell was a beautiful 17 year old girl with her entire life ahead of her. She was going to high school, on the dance team, modelling and taking classes at the Wenatchee Academy of Hair design. Mackenzie’s life was cut short and in such a brutal manner that it left Wenatchee stunned. Mackenzie's body was found stabbed, strangled, and mutilated. The case takes so many twists and turns with drug informants, potential cases of mistaken identity and eventually a conviction that left some wondering if the right person was behind bars.

Alaina brings us another 2 part series this week, this time we’re talking about the Sunset Strip Killers, Doug Clark and Carol Bundy. It’s always wild to us how two shockingly depraved people can find each other like this, and this case brings wild to a new level. Together Doug and Carol would kill sex workers. Carol is only suspected in two murders; many are convinced she helped with more.

Ash promised you something haunted this week after Alaina’s three part deep dive into the Hillside Stranglers and boy did she pick a doozy. The Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia is supposedly one of America’s most haunted buildings. It has a fascinating, yet macabre history and it housed some of the world's most notorious criminals. We’ll get into all that history, talk about some of the most known prisoners and then dive into the most haunted cell blocks that remain standing today!

We’ve made it to part two of three of Alaina’s deep dive into the depraved minds of Angelo Buono and Kenny Biaanchi. If you’ve made it to this part, you know that this cousin duo is out on the sunset strip terrorizing the lives of young women. You can only terrorize one area for so long though and in this part they decide to switch up not only their way of getting victims, but also the process in which they torture and kill. This will be a tough one, and we hope to see you back for part three.

Episode 257: The Tragic Story of Barbara Daly Baekeland
01:03:28
Ash brings us the story of Barbara Daly Baekeland, a New York socialite who ended up being murdered by her son Anthony “Tony” Baekeland. Barbara had a long history of mental illness and eventually her son did as well, some argue Tony’s mental illness began when his mother tried to “cure him of his homosexuality” by taking him to bed herself. This was definitely a hard one to get through, but is a fascinating case for sure.

Alaina has decided to really throw us for a loop this week with a multi-parter on the Hillside stranglers, Angelo Buono and Kenneth Bianchi. We had to break this into two parts simply because even before they became murderous monsters, they were terrible. In part one we’ll go over some background on each of them, how they linked up and their first 2 murders.

Episode 255: True Crime Songs with Ronnie & Ben from Watch What Crappens!
01:14:36
This episode we are joined by Ronnie Karam and Ben Mandelker of the Watch What Crappens podcast, for something a bit different! Throughout the years recording Morbid we’ve come across an abundance of songs that were inspired by true crime events. We figured it would be pretty interesting to break down some of the crimes and songs with these fellas. We revisit the Moors murders to talk about The Smith’s ballad “Suffer Little Children,” reminisce on hearing Fastball’s “The Way” while having no idea that it was inspired by something dark and last but not least we dive into Neko Case’s “Deep Red Bells,” which was inspired by the Green River Killer’s victims.

Episode 254: The Erdington Murders
00:48:31
Y’all, if you haven’t heard of the Erdington murders then you’re in for a doozy. Ash goes over the case of two young women, Mary Ashford and Barbara Forrest who were murdered 157 years apart in Erdington. The way that the two cases mirror each other is just so bonkers and will have you questioning if some kind of Fear Street witch cursed the area. Oh also there’s a trial by combat, so there’s that.

Episode 253: Buried Alive
01:04:28
"If the beard wags, please no body bags."


Today, Alaina is going to take you on a journey that you never wanted to take. Today, we go into the fear, history and hysteria around the idea of premature burial. In this episode, you will learn about screaming and chewing corpses, methods of making sure the dead is really dead, patented safety coffins and examples of real people who were buried alive. Maybe listen to this one in a big open field? Or the open ocean? I don't know. It may help.

Episode 252: Charles Schmid "The Pied Piper of Tucson"
00:59:02
For our second episode this week, Ash brings us the case of Charles Schmid aka the Pied Piper of Tucson. This case, dare we say, may be one of the wildest rides we’ve brought you along for in quite some time. Charles was really a vibe in the 60’s, at least according to the youths of the day. He would change his appearance quite drastically when he turned 18 and it was at that moment he became a hot commodity. However, he was one of the most evil, callous assholes on the planet. He was responsible for the deaths of three young girls, one being his girlfriend at the time, and some say there’s a fourth victim. Buckle up, buttercups.

Episode 251: Tara Calico
01:06:51
The Tara Calico case is one that will have your mind going for days. This is a very prominent case in the true crime world, and for good reason: it’s still unsolved after 33 years. Tara Calico was 19 when she went missing after heading out on a routine bike ride. For years no one was entirely sure what to make of the case, especially when a polaroid showed up and the woman in the photo bore a striking resemblance to Tara. However, as this case unfolds, small town secrets start to surface and many are convinced the answer has been around for years but covered up by the very people claiming to want justice.

Episode 249: The Horrific Murders of Austin Wenner & Jessica Lewis
01:05:34
On June 19 2020, a group of tik tokers stumbled across a suitcase on a Seattle beach. They used the app Randonautica to get to the exact location and thought maybe there would be money in the suitcase. Instead they realized something much more sinister and called police. Inside, the suitcase were the remains of Jessica Lewis and Austin Wenner, a couple who’d been together for nearly 8 years.

Episode 248: Marion Stembridge
01:05:38
You know we love an old-timey case around these parts, and boy does Alaina have a doozy to deliver. Marion Stembridge was out there wildin’ in Georgia scamming people out of money left and right with his shady underground businesses. He came from money but always wanted more and would stop at nothing to get it. When he got got though, he was not pleased and as we will see he went on an absolute rampage killing anyone he felt wronged him. AND he did this all while the town of Milledgeville was trying to celebrate their 150th birthday. Priorities, am I right?

John Edward Robinson is one of the wildest schemers you’ll probably hear about. He spent most of his early life creating fake businesses and scheming investors and co-workers out of thousands of dollars.

Things started to escalate even more though when John started “helping” young mothers out. You’re going to want to hear the end of this one guys, and we’ll see you soon for part 2!

01:02:24
We’re bringing you to one of our favorite vacation spots: Provincetown Mass. Only we aren’t sunbathing and playing volleyball on the beach, we’re here to solve a cold case, y’all. The Lady of the Dunes, as she’s known, was discovered  on July 26, 1974, in the tall grass at the Race Point Dunes. Throughout the past 47 years investigators have worked tirelessly following up on leads and exhuming her body every time some kind of new technology comes up. To this day they still don’t know who killed the woman, or more importantly, who the woman even is!

00:55:15
The night of September 22, 1986 was an absolute nightmare on Phillip Island. On an island known for its nightly penguin parades, no one expected to find a young woman brutally murdered on her bedroom floor. Elizabeth “Beth” Barnard was only 23 years old when she was discovered stabbed to death and left with the letter “A” carved into her abdomen. She’d been having an affair with a married man, Fergus Cameron. Did his wife Vivienne do this to Beth, or was it a stalker from her past?

Episode 236: Lake Lanier
01:12:48
Lake Lanier.. Honestly I feel like that’s all I need to say. This place has so much creepy surrounding it!! There are giant catfish that have been compared to volkswagen, phantom hands pulling you under the water and not to mention the entire submerged counties that lie beneath. There are also multiple deaths and murders that have occured in or around the lake. So much to unpack here, just in time for your memorial day weekend!!

Episode 235: The Unbelievable Tale of Michael Malloy AKA Mike The Durable
01:13:31

You guys. You’re in for a real treat if you’ve never heard the tale of Michael Malloy. To call him durable is to vastly undersell this story. This dude not only survived about 67 attempts on his life, but did it while- let’s just say more than heavily intoxicated! He is a true iron man.

Episode 234: The Smiley Face Deaths/Murder Mystery
01:08:45
Since 1997 young men have been disappearing for periods of time and then turning up in bodies of water. Upon first glance it’s easy to brush these off as accidents, young men drinking too much and slipping or falling to their deaths: sad but not unheard of. It was in 2008 that Kevin Gannon, Anthony Duarte, Mike Donovan and Dr. Lee Gilbertson presented a theory to the world: What if these cases aren’t accidents at all? What if there is some kind of gang spread across the nation, picking these guys off 1 by 1. Insert the name of the case, The Smiley Face Killers.

Episode 229: The Tragic Death of Natalie Wood
01:01:02
Natalie Wood had one of the most troubling back stories a child star could have, a stage mom that crossed all imaginable boundaries, a violent alcoholic for a father and men that took advantage of her all throughout her life. She thought she had found safety in Robert Wagner, who she was married to twice. But the events on the final night of her life leave some with questions about Robert Wagner… did he push his beloved wife overboard?

Gary Michael Hilton is a serial killer who was convicted for the murders of four people, although many assume he has killed more.

Today we are joined by a very special guest, Cameron Esposito, to talk all things comedy and true crime! It’s the perfect mashup of worlds. Ash takes us through the Thelma Todd case from Thelma’s childhood in Massachusetts to when the young ✨Hollywood✨ starlet was discovered dead in her own car. Together we wonder what a car is exactly, why the Hollywood machine is so scary and whether we are prepared to be found paradoxically undressed. Thanks so much to Cameron for joining us!

Episode 226: Tyler Hadley (Redo!)
01:33:52
Tyler Hadley was 17 years old when he decided to bludgeon his parents and then throw the rager of a lifetime (in his eyes.) Close to a hundred people attended this party not knowing that in a separate locked bedroom down the hall, the bodies of Mary Jo and Blake Hadley were laying under a hodgepodge of household items. We redid this case to offer some new information and woah, somehow it’s even more disturbing the second time around.  BUT to lighten some of the darkest moments, we have added in clips from the original episode because we could never replace the original "FA SHO!!" ;)

It’s Alaina-centric and it’s old timey!! We’re heading back to England in the 1930’s. William Herbert Wallace is quite a character, and to be honest so is his wife Julia. When Julia turns up dead in their home, people start taking a closer look at Wallace and his idiosyncratic tendencies. Why doesn’t he seem to be emotional, why is he just petting the cat so nonchalantly, what is this dude's deal? Is he telling the truth about not being involved? Just when you think you know, another shady character steps on the scene!!

It's a DO-OVER!


This tale has always been such a crazy one that we just had to do it again and do it right. 


On December 6, 1959, respected and renowned doctor, Harold Perelson, turned his family's dream home into a nightmare when he snapped in the dead of night and left a trail of blood in his wake. This house would come to be known as the Los Feliz Murder House for a good reason.

Episode 220: The Tragic Murder of Kenia Monge/ The Incredible Survival Tale of Lydia Tillman
00:56:31
Kenia Monge was 19 years old when she went missing after a night out with her friends in Colorado. While her father Tony was trying to call her friends and find out what had happened that night, a text came through to Kenia’s phone from a number she didn’t have saved. It was from a man named Travis who claimed to have attempted to give her a ride home the previous night. Tony agreed to go meet the man and talk, but when he shook Travis’s hand, he knew he was shaking the hand of the man who killed his daughter. The rest of the events throughout the case are shocking and will have you holding on to your butt til’ the very end.

01:00:00
We figured with everything being pretty heavy lately, we’d bring you a haunting. THE haunting, actually. The Bell family moved to their Tennessee farm in the early 1800s and had things great at first, beautiful land a big happy family. All the sudden though, in 1817, a haunting began and an entity who became known as the Bell Witch would terrorize the family for years to come!

Here’s our second take on the episode with some new insight, maybe we’ll finally close this chapter.

Here are the books mentioned in the episode! Very recommended reads for this case!

Episode 215: The Torture and Murder of Shanda Sharer
01:43:16
Shanda Sharer was 12 years old when she met a girl named Amanda. Amanda was already involved in a troubling relationship with a girl named Melinda Loveless and when Amanda and Shanda started hanging out Melinda became even more possessive of Amanda and started threatening Shanda. Melinda would tell anyone who would listen that she was going to kill Shanda someday, but for some reason no one took her seriously. One night Melinda gathered a group of friends including: Lauri Tacket, Hope Rippey and Toni Lawrence. The mission was to trick Shanda into thinking Amanda wanted to see her, but Amanda was not there. Three of the four girls then brutally tortured and murdered 12 year old Shanda Sharer, while one did nothing to stop them. This story is incredibly difficult to get through, but just like all of our cases, deserves to be told so that the memory of Shanda never fades. 

Books used for researching the case:
Cruel Sacrifice by Aphrodite Jones
Little Lost Angel by Michael Quinlan

Episode 214: The Tragic Case of Molly Bish
01:04:50
Molly Bish was 16 years old and working as a lifeguard at Comins Pond in Warren. She’d only been working there about a week on June 27th, 2000 when her mother dropped her off for her 10:00 shift. Swimmers would be arriving any minute, but just minutes later when they started piling in for swim lessons, there was no lifeguard on duty. In a matter of minutes Molly vanished, but it would be three years before her partial remains would be discovered, and over twenty with no answers. This case remains unsolved to this day, although the investigation is very much active. **Anyone With information about the Molly Bish case should call the State Police tip line at 508-453-7575
