For Heaven's Sake...
The Wicked Ones Podcast hosts, Tara and Jen, discuss one of Chicago's most infamous cases and the fact that an innocent boy may have gone to prison for murders he didn't commit. Guilty or Not? You be the judge. We're talking about the Lipstick Murders, William Heirens, a few other suspects that may have been a better fit for a guilty verdict & a very intriguing theory proposed by a retired police officer in connection with the case. Interested in the Black Dahlia? Elizabeth Short comes into play near the end of our story this week as well, and if you aren't familiar with the connection...it will give you chills.
The Wicked Ones Podcast hosts, Jen and Tara discuss the insane story behind serial killer, Eugene Carl Watts, AKA “The Sunday Morning Slasher.” We have a feeling you will shake your head throughout as you learn about certain aspects of the case in relation to our judicial system. Unfortunately certain rules, regulations and loop holes tend to work against the greater good and in favor of those who don’t deserve ANY favors. In the case of Mr. Watts…we can all agree that as a society we still have much room for improvement.
The Wicked Ones Podcast hosts, Tara and Jen discuss the infamous case of Charles Starkweather & Caril Ann Fugate, two teens that went on a killing spree that started in Lincoln, Nebraska in 1957. Charles is yet another serial killer that is immortalized in pop culture, as the story was the inspiration for the movies "Badlands" and "Natural Born Killers". Bruce Springsteen even wrote a song called "Nebraska" based on Charlie's point of view of the events from a killing spree that shocked the entire nation.

For a romantic at heart…hers was as black as they come.

The more you know, the safer you are, so listen in.
