    116: Cryptic: Richard Lancelyn Green

    NEW SERIES TIME! In the first episode of our Cryptic series, we have a story so perplexing, Sherlock Holmes himself couldn't have cracked it. Or, could he? Was it actually set up to BE a Sherlock Holmes Story?

    Richard Lancelyn Green was the fan of all Sherlock and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle fans. He was working on writing the most extensive biography on the author, when he was found dead in his home. Initially, it was ruled a suicide, but the closer they looked... it may not have been elementary, my dear Watson.

    115: A Woman Scorned: Judith and Alvin Neelley, Part 2

    We're back with the rest of the story of Judith and Alvin Neelley. When we left off last week, the two had just been arrested for check forgery and Janice Chatman was still missing. We pick up with the interrogation, then move into the legal dealings, and also debate our own thoughts and feelings on this brutal case.

    114: A Woman Scorned: Judith and Alvin Neelley, Part 1

    Okay y'all, you've likely heard this story before... by us. But we're revisiting it because we've learned so much more about it since two and a half years ago. We're bringing a more raw and in-depth version of the murders of Lisa Ann Millican and Janice Kay Chatman, at the hands of Judith and Alvin Neelley. Judith and Alvin are an unconventional couple who married when Judith was a teenager and Alvin was in his late 20s. They went on to commit a series of crimes including armed robbery and check forgery, that eventually escalated to murder.

    112: A Woman Scorned: Jodi Arias, Part 1

    You just can't talk about a woman scorned without talking about Jodi Arias. You've likely heard her name, if not her story. This week in part 1, Jenn and Lindsay discuss the brutal murder of Travis Alexander at the hands of Jodi, and the beginning stages of the trial which seeks to answer one important question - Why? Was it cold blooded and heartless? Or was it self defense?

    111: A Woman Scorned: Martha Wise

    One Thanksgiving, an entire family fell ill. Well, everyone except for one. What seemed to be a virus or food poisoning at first looked more menacing when three family members died, four ended up paralyzed, and other serious medical ailments. What caused Martha Wise to poison her entire extended family?
