    Episode 292: The Antifreeze Murders

    Episode 292: The Antifreeze Murders

    Stacey Castor is most often referred to as a Black Widow, but that name barely does justice when it comes to all of the pain Stacey inflicted on those around her. Both of her husbands turned up dead, one of a heart attack and the other of suicide and then years later her daughter was rushed to the hospital, mere minutes away from death herself. When the puzzle pieces started to fit together they showed an image of a deranged murderer who would stop at next to nothing to be painted as a grieving wife and mother, just down on her luck.

    Episode 291: The Purrington Massacre

    Episode 291: The Purrington Massacre

    The story of the Purrington murders is so horrific it sounds like something out of a movie. James Purrington seemed to have plans of killing himself after suffering from what was likely undiagnosed mental illness. When one of his children brought this to the attention of their mother and his wife, he said he had no intention of killing himself at all, just typical worries about his family after a long grueling summer and a bad drought. His wife seemed to be settled for the time being, but soon almost the entire family would be found axed to death in their home, and James Purrington would be discovered lying dead on the kitchen floor.

    Episode 290: The Tragic Murder of Phil Hartman

    Episode 290: The Tragic Murder of Phil Hartman

    This is the story of Phil Hartman and the episode is a little different than some we’ve done in the past. We all know Ash loves an “Old Hollywood” kind of case, this one while not very old at all fits under the umbrella. Phil Hartman was one of the most beloved comedians of all times, often referred to as, “The Man of 1000 voices.” When you dive into his life as a whole you find all kinds of hidden gems, like the fact that Phil had a run in with Jimi Hendrix, and so many more little anecdotes like that! Unfortunately, Phil was taken from this world far too soon and in such a horrific way.

    Episode 289: The Swamp Angel

    Episode 289: The Swamp Angel

    This is the tale of Helen Ruth Spence, who grew up with the River People on The White River in Arkansas. When Helen was just 17 years old her father was shot and killed in front of her and her stepmother was beaten and assaulted by the same man. Helen had her own way of carrying out justice which landed her in and out of prison. The prisons at this time were deplorable and we don’t even know about all of the punishments Helen underwent. What we do know will shock you to your core. Helen's story is truly unlike any other.
