    Episode 271: The Villisca Axe Murders Part 1

    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.

    Villisca by Roy Marshall

    Episode 270: Jodi Arias

    Episode 270: Jodi Arias

    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 269: The Murder of Nancy Rentz

    Nancy Rentz was a woman who was loved and cared about by so many people; her parents, her twin sister, her younger sister, her brother and her children. She undeniably touched the lives of everyone around her and truly just seemed like one of the most beautiful people inside and out. Unfortunately Nancy was killed by one of the people who was supposed to love and protect her throughout life: her husband, Brad Cooper.

    Episode 268: The Railroad Killer

    Episode 268: The Railroad Killer

    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.

Amazing! 👻💀🖤🖤🖤

They are absolutely hilarious and informative, which is a hard feat to pull off. They are respectful to the victims and their families. They can make even the darkest episode light hearted-er. (It’s hard to make those things light hearted without being disrespectful). And thank you Alaina because you helped me find the job that I want to pursue. (Autopsy Tech) you two make my day sooo much better and make my bus rides to school enjoyable. Thank you for doing what you do and KEEP IT WEIRD!!

Once a fan, but questioning

I’ve always liked this show for your authenticity and original tales but recently I think you’ve gotten sloppy. Your intros have become long and extremely (I don’t use that lightly) self indulgent. You also use your word extremely loosely. For example, you often say ‘people never do’ this or that type statements, when those ‘never’ extremes are simply not true, and with the extent of your current reach you should do better—you should be thinking more carefully about the impact of your word and not getting more complacent. Alaina says things such as “it should go without saying that we would never victim blame” after Ash says something that understandably needs explanation. It does NOT go without saying that you’re doing better Alaina. If you do not start using your word and platform more intentionally I will certainly see no benefit from your contribution or platform any longer

Lesser version of CrimeJunkies

Sorry but I’m not a fan. The narrators get caught up on little things they find funny or interesting and it just felt messy and uninformed.
