    John Does from the Box Labeled "Old Cases"

    John Does from the Box Labeled "Old Cases"

    In this episode we cracked open the box of 'old cases' and pulled out a few John Does.

    First, we talk about the 4-6 year old Doe known as the "Boy in the Box." In 1957 this unidentified murder victim's battered body was found inside a bassinet box in the Fox Chase section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was determined the boy died of blunt force trauma. Investigators were puzzled because it appeared the boy had been abused and neglected but seemed well-groomed at the same time. Over the years this case garnered a lot of attention, but to this day the Boy in the Box remains unidentified - which has left us with some wild theories and ~*interesting*~ investigation tactics. 

    Then, we talk about a few more lesser known John Does and for once, we leave you with a happy ending... Kind of?

    A Tale of Two Spousal Murders | Kristie Evans & Caroline Crouch

    A Tale of Two Spousal Murders | Kristie Evans & Caroline Crouch

    Today we are going to talk about two different cases of spousal murder that will leave you feeling very differently. 

    The first is the murder of Pastor David Evans who's wife of 30 years, Kristie Evans, convinced their mutual lover to kill David. What was initially reported as a 'love triangle gone wrong' turned out to be something much darker. Kristie suffered years of abuse at the hands of her husband and was pressured into uncomfortable sexual situations to appease David's kinks. In March, 2021, Kristie had enough and arranged David's murder - which she eventually confessed to. Kristie's defense team will most likely argue that the years of abuse altered her mental state in order to reduce her sentence. Which raises the question, should victims of domestic abuse receive lesser murder sentences?

    The second case is the murder of 19 year old Caroline Crouch by her 33 year old husband Charalambos ‘Babis’ Anagnostopoulos. On May 11th, 2021, Caroline was found strangled to death and tied to her bed after what Babis claimed was a merciless robbery. He told police foreign robbers tied him up in the basement before murdering Caroline and their puppy, and ransacking the house for cash. Of course, this was all a lie to cover up the fact that Babis murdered Caroline after a heated argument. Police were able to use data from Caroline's smart watch to figure out when her heart stopped beating - which didn't match up with Babis's story. After confessing to what police already knew, Babis claimed Caroline was the aggressor and pushed him which left him in a 'blurred state of mind.' Believe us, there's A LOT to unpack with this one.

    A briefcase of bullets, a pressed maple leaf and a place called Babyland | Bizarre Jane Doe Cases

    A briefcase of bullets, a pressed maple leaf and a place called Babyland | Bizarre Jane Doe Cases

    In this episode we talk about 3 Jane Doe cases with some bizarre twists. 

    First, is the Annandale Doe who was found with a plastic bag taped over her head in Babyland - the children's section of the Pleasant Valley Memorial Park Cemetery. We agree, Babyland is a terrible name, but that's besides the point. She was found with a small Christmas tree beside her, a Minnie mouse fanny pack and a vague suicide note.

    Next, we talk about the Seattle Doe known as Mary Anderson. Mary booked a two night stay at the Hotel Vintage Park to commit suicide by drinking Metamucil mixed with cyanide (ew). Judging by her belongings, Mary seemed well-off and investigators believed she was educated due to the fact that she was able to get cyanide. Along with another vague suicide note (see above), a pressed maple leaf was found in a newspaper Mary had been carrying. 

    And lastly, we talk about the case of Jennifer Fairgate of Norway. This Doe brings us to another hotel called the Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel. Somehow, Jennifer managed to book a 3 night stay without showing ID or paying upfront. After realizing Jennifer never paid for her room, a hotel employee went to speak with her only to hear a gunshot. After alerting their manager and breaking into the room, they found Jennifer dead with a bullet wound to her head. It looked like she committed suicide, but some things didn't add up. Jennifer's belongings (like a suitcase full of bullets??) and behavior leading up to her death has left people wondering if Jennifer could have been some sort of spy. A man who stayed in the room across from Jennifer did an interview and made a major red flag of a mistake leaving us to wonder if Jennifer was murdered.

    We also talk about how it's pretty much always a bad sign when a hotel room door is dead bolted, how all of these cases could have been solved if they happened today, and what we think may have happened to each doe. 

    Be sure to follow us on Instagram to let us know what you think happened to these Does!

    Scandal in the Bush | Missing Seniors Russell Hill & Carol Clay

    Scandal in the Bush | Missing Seniors Russell Hill & Carol Clay

    In this episode we give you a geography lesson on Australia and 'the bush' before diving into the case of missing 70-year-old campers, Russell Hill and Carol Clay.
     
    Senior citizens disappearing while camping in a dangerously rugged area? Seems pretty self-explanatory as to what happened. Except there is A LOT more to this story than meets the eye.
     
    As it turns out, Russell was married to another woman and had been having an affair with Carol for years. When police reached their campsite after the two were reported missing, they found it burned to the ground. The area has been searched numerous times, but there has been no sign of the pair. 
     
    At first, many people thought they ran off and started a new life together or that they got lost in the bush and died of exposure, but police believe a third party may be involved.
     
    Plus - stick around until the end to hear why our Facebook Page is similar to the Australian Bush (spoiler: it's because it's out of friggin CONTROL).

Trying to Like it

I’ve listened to a few episodes, I really want to like this, it’s just not holding my attention. I think maybe some tighter editing, getting rid of dead air and filler words may help? Ill keep trying, but so far no go
