    #98: Mom & Son Incest Killers (Case of Sante Kimes)

    #98: Mom & Son Incest Killers (Case of Sante Kimes)

    When you walked by her house in the exclusively rich part of Newport Beach California you would never think it holds such sinister secrets.






    She was holding young women captive in her house and would be arrested for slavery charges. 






    After escaping from prison - she went on to brutally murder and scam her way into millions of dollars with her boyfriend.






    Who is her boyfriend you ask? Well, none other than her very own son. 






    And just when you think you know her - she surprises you.






    Book Rec: “Son Of A Grifter” - by Kent Walker (one of Sante’s sons I couldn’t put it down it was so good!)

    #97: The Kindergarten Teacher Killer (Case of Angila Wilder)

    #97: The Kindergarten Teacher Killer (Case of Angila Wilder)

    First day of Kindergarten is always a nerve-racking time for parents. But when they meet Mrs. W their tensions are probably eased. 






    She has a soft face with a dirty blonde bob and she’s a mom of three! She seems like the perfect teacher - kind, nurturing, sweet. 






    But when she’s with the police she’s a totally different person. 






    “I want to see where it stabbed her.” 






    “I want to see a video of them having s** with my husband!” 






    It makes you wonder - how well do we actually know our teachers? 






    Book Rec: “Wilder Intentions” - by C.J. Wynn (This is the best deep dive on the case and it’s meticulously researched!)

    #96: Kidnapped By North Korea Part 2 (Case of Choi Eun-hee)

    #96: Kidnapped By North Korea Part 2 (Case of Choi Eun-hee)

    You want us to do what? - the couple had been kidnapped and forced to live in North Korea for years before they found out the truth. 






    The wife was a former beloved movie actress. The husband was an award-winning film director. And now North Korea had kidnapped them to make movies for Kim Jong Il. 






    It sounds like a fictional story - but it was very much real. And the couple’s lives depended on how good of a movie they could make. 






    (Please listen to Part 1 before this episode!)

    #95: Kidnapped By North Korea Part 1 (Case of Choi Eun-hee)

    #95: Kidnapped By North Korea Part 1 (Case of Choi Eun-hee)

    She couldn’t believe it. They wanted her to write a letter to her kidnappers thanking them for all that they have done for her. 






    Are these people out of their minds? She missed her old life in South Korea - she had been a famous movie actress, her children, freedom, she missed it all. 






    Now she was kidnapped in a foreign country forced to write letters of love to the men who ordered it. 






    She started the letter - Dear Kim Jong Il The Supreme Leader of North Korea…

    #94: The Baby Faced Killer (Case of Gonzales Family Murders)

    #94: The Baby Faced Killer (Case of Gonzales Family Murders)

    The goal was simple. Break into the house - sneak into the upstairs room and murder the 18 year old high school girl. 






    Now comes the hard part - the wait. Waiting in an eerily silent house near the body of the young girl till her parents come home. They too have to be murdered. 






    Now for the finishing touches. Write on the walls in big blue spray paint “f**k off Asians KKK.”

    #93: The Mommy Blogger Killer (Case of Lacey Spears)

    #93: The Mommy Blogger Killer (Case of Lacey Spears)

    She was rushing to the emergency room - her 5-year-old son was in the back. Every minute could mean life or death. He had been having seizures all day. 






    But before entering the hospital she stood over her suffering son and took a picture.






    What would she caption this one? Maybe she would mention how this was going to be his 13th surgery. Yeah, that would be good. The followers would eat that up. 






    Book Rec: “My Sweet Angel” - by John Glatt (Such a great deep dive on this case)
