Description

A true crime podcast that recalls the brutal slaying of BETTY ANN SULLIVAN on a snowy night in January of 1988, a night that, more than 30 years later, the small town of Jefferson Township, New Jersey has yet to fully recover from. The violence of that evening shocked the nation for the perpetrator... was her own son, a boy of fourteen who would take his own life only hours later. What the investigation revealed left a community in tatters, unwilling to believe the evil that had befallen them.

Now we revisit the night in question, minute-by-minute, just like in episode one... only now we see things in a completely new light, and from a new perspective. Not from the point of view of law enforcement or his mother or his friend... but from Tommy’s point of view. We’ll understand what really happened, why it happened, and, most importantly, how it happened.

In an attempt to find the truth, a truth that doesn’t involve the supernatural, we investigate other possible reasons Tommy may have snapped. In this episode we learn that Tommy was dedicated and successful athlete in a sport almost as mysterious as the occult: wrestling. Was the pressure of school, athletics and his religious demands enough to drive him over the edge?

To understand the murders we need to understand where Tommy was spending his time, and that requires a deep dive into the mythology surrounding CLINTON ROAD, dubbed The Most Haunted Road in America by ghost hunters and paranormal enthusiasts the world over. This episode will also introduce a mysterious millionaire named RICHARD CROSS who, although dead for decades at the time of the incident, his influence on devil worshippers was hugely felt.
