    ILLINOIS - John Wayne Gacy (PT. 4): Possible Accomplices and Pedophile Ring Conspiracies

    ILLINOIS - John Wayne Gacy (PT. 4): Possible Accomplices and Pedophile Ring Conspiracies

    In our last episode, we ended with John Wayne Gacy’s execution - but the story does not end there. There has long been speculation that Gacy did not act alone, and after spending weeks researching this case we’ve learned a lot of things that are just too crazy to ignore, like one of Gacy’s PDM employees becoming a cannibalistic serial killer and another being connected to one of America’s largest pedophile rings. In this episode, we’re diving into the largely unknown conspiracy behind the killer clown’s murders. This is part four of the story of John Wayne Gacy, the Killer Clown, and you are listening to Murder in America.

    ILLINOIS - John Wayne Gacy (PT. 3): Arrest, Trial, & Execution

    ILLINOIS - John Wayne Gacy (PT. 3): Arrest, Trial, & Execution

    With a victim count totalling 32 in the summer of 1978, there was one more life that John Wayne Gacy would take before his rein of terror would come to an end. When Robert Piest, a beloved honors student, went missing in December 1978 the police would soon zero in on the man responsible for the missing boys around Chicago - and what they would find in the unassuming suburban Chicago home would shock not only America, but the entire world. And that discovery would soon earn Gacy the title of the most prolific serial killer in American history. Join us on this episode, as we walk you through Gacy’s final murder, and everything that followed. This is part three of the story of John Wayne Gacy, the Killer Clown, and you are listening to Murder in America.

    ILLINOIS - John Wayne Gacy (PT. 2): The MURDERS

    ILLINOIS - John Wayne Gacy (PT. 2): The MURDERS

    It was the height of the 1970s and dozens of young men from the Chicago area started going missing. 33 young men, to be exact. By 1978, 29 of the 33 missing young men would be found, dead, in the small home on Summerdale Avenue in the Chicago suburbs. Some were buried in the backyard, others in a concrete slab in the garage, but most would be found in the cold, wet, and crowded crawlspace beneath the home. It would not be long before the entire world knew the name of the man responsible - this is part two of the story of John Wayne Gacy, the Killer Clown, and you are listening to Murder in America.

    COLD Season 3: The Search For Sheree

    COLD Season 3: The Search For Sheree

    Sheree Warren left her job in Salt Lake City on a mild October evening in 1985. She told a coworker she was headed to meet her estranged husband, Charles Warren, at a car dealership. But she never made it, Sheree vanished. When her car mysteriously surfaced weeks later, hundreds of miles away in Las Vegas, no one could say how it got there.





    When a young mother disappears under unexplained circumstances, police always turn suspicious eyes towards the husband. And although there was distrust around Charles Warren, he wasn’t the only suspect when Sheree went missing. She also had a boyfriend, a former cop named Cary Hartmann, who lived a sinister double life.


    Season three follows two suspects– men who both raised suspicion for investigators. But with two strong persons of interest with competing facts and evidence, it muddied the murder investigation. This season, host Dave Cawley, digs into the lives of these two men, the details of the case and examines the intersections between domestic abuse and sexual violence. The COLD team seeks to answer the question: what really happened to Sheree Warren?

    ILLINOIS - John Wayne Gacy (PT. 1): Who WAS The Killer Clown?

    ILLINOIS - John Wayne Gacy (PT. 1): Who WAS The Killer Clown?

    It was the 1970s, and young men who had their whole lives in front of them started going missing around the greater Chicago area. While some disappeared while looking for a job in the city, or hanging out near the Greyhound bus station, or walking along the roads outside of Chicago, the one thing all 33 missing young men had in common was that they were manipulated and murdered by a man named John Wayne Gacy, with many of their bodies being left to decompose within the crawlspace of his suburban Chicago home. This is part one of the story of John Wayne Gacy, the Killer Clown, and you are listening to Murder in America.

LOVE LOVE LOVE

My absolute favourite podcast, I had started listening to podcasts this year and this one instantly hooked me. I love true crime. These two do such an amazing job describing stories and finding details that I didn’t know about some of my favourite cases. It’s been 4 months and I’ve almost listened to every single podcast made. Keep up the amazing work!

LOVE.THIS.PODCAST!

I can’t say enough about the podcast, I had a friend recommend and I started at episode 1 and was hooked from the start! Colin and Courtney do a great job and I love the paranormal aspect of it!!

Stopwhispering26 ,

Please stop whispering

I listen on my long commutes to and from work. I have to really crank the volume when Courtney speaks. Her voice really gets drowned out with the traffic noise even though my windows are up. I appreciate all the time and effort you guys have put in however it’s all for nothing if you can’t hear it or are losing listeners because we are fed up with constantly having to adjust the volume. I left this recommendation on their instagram page and was blocked. Way to accept constructive criticism. Others have also been commenting about the whispering… it’s not just me.
