Description

MURDER IN AMERICA is a true crime podcast that takes a state-by-state look at the most infamous homicides across the United States of America. Co-hosted by Courtney Shannon & Colin Browen (of "The Paranormal Files"), the two delve deep into the darkest tales of murder from each and every state, featuring two stories from a different state every week. Their passion for true crime, along with Colin's career in investigating paranormal activity gives the two a fresh outlook on these crimes, and allows them to gain the deepest perspectives possible when analyzing the grisly details of these horrific acts. Sometimes, you can't help but wonder... the dead don't talk... or DO they?

46: EP. 46 - NEW YORK - The Most Disturbing Serial Killer I've EVER Heard Of: Albert Fish, The Cannibal Killer
3873
WARNING: THIS EPISODE IS NOT FOR EVERYONE. THIS IS A SERIOUS MESSAGE- LISTEN TO THIS EPISODE WITH CAUTION. We go into GRAPHIC detail in this episode and it really is disturbing.

In the early 1900's, a mysterious killer stalked the streets of New York City. He was given many nicknames by the press, "The Boogeyman", "The Werewolf of Wisteria", "The Brooklyn Vampire"... but even these names do not describe accurately how horrific the crimes of Albert Fish were. This, in my opinion, is the most disturbing episode of our show to date. This story, will haunt you.

3746
In the late 1990's and early 2000's, a brutal serial killer terrorized the community of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, murdering women at random and carving up their bodies for fun.

But behind closed doors, this psycho was showering with the corpses of his victims, painting the fingernails of dismembered hands and killing at random, whenever he wanted to. However, these crimes cannot carry on forever, and the story of his eventual capture is almost as shocking as the crimes themselves. You're listening, to MURDER IN AMERICA.

WARNING: This episode is EXTREMELY graphic. Listener discretion is HEAVILY advised.

13: EP. 13 - MINNESOTA: A Mother's Murder: The Needless Killing of Carol Thompson
1472

This murder was the inspiration for the movie "FARGO".

Our story takes place in St. Paul, Minnesota, in a neighborhood called Highland Park. It’s March of 1963, and the homes within this neighborhood are filled with members of the upper-middle class. It was a neighborhood that a lot of people would aspire to raise a family in. One where no one would suspect danger or foul play. This was the case for the home at 1720 Hillcrest Avenue, where the Thompson family lived. It was a lavish property with an almost regal feel to it. And the Thompson family, surely, had no idea, that what would happen in their home would go on to become one of the biggest murder cases in Minnesota history. You’re listening to Murder in America.
