    The Amityville Massacre

    The Amityville Massacre

    Happy Halloween!! On this episode Joe & James take a look at one of the original horror stories made famous by film and books, the case of the Amityville Murders. Most of what is known is made up of local myth and legends. Broad sensationalism that overlooks the true horror in the case is peeled back in this episode of A Dark Tale. A closer look at the lives lost, the stories that were produced and the man ultimately held responsible for that vicious night in New York. This is the true story of the Amityville Horror: The DeFeo Murders.

    Gary Heidnik

    Gary Heidnik

    The 1980's is one of the most tumultuous decades in American crime history. Those years set the tone for the classic image of a serial killer or deranged madman lurking in the shadows. Gary Heidnik was one of those men, committing crimes that would inspire Hollywood fiction that reshaped the horror genre.


    This week, Joe tells the Dark Tale of Gary Heidnik and the atrocities he would commit upon 6 women over the course of 5 months. In the winter of 1986/87, Gary Heidnik was hellbent on having his own harem of women hidden away from the rest of the world in his basement on Marshall Street in Philadelphia.

    The Unexplained Death of Elisa Lam

    This week, the crew is back together and we're talking about the circumstances surrounding the disappearance and subsequent death of Elisa Lam.  A 21 year old Canadian university student, who was on a solo trip along the west coast of the US before mysteriously vanishing without a trace leaving behind only a single eerie surveillance video.  The video itself has since gone viral many time over, and spawned many theories from murder to demonic possession. 


    Many are still trying to crack the case and in this episode we'll review the evidence and bring own conclusions to the table.  What did you see in that video?

MandaAnnMarie ,

Good podcast

I have binged the 3 episodes on Laci Peterson and the one on Chris Watts. I enjoy so far but there were a couple times that it sounded like one of the hosts burped and it wasn’t edited out lol.

Bonnie Lee Writing About Crime ,

I'm enjoying this podcast.

Well done! Can't wait for more.

Loud background noise

Could be a lot better if it didn't have such loud background "atmospheric"noise, which dominates and interferes with the narration. Incredibly annoying.
