    Listener Tales 61: Across The Pond Edition

    OMG! Listener tales, brought to you by you from you for you, and ALL ABOUT YOU. This batch of listener tales comes from our favorite people across the pond. You guys just seriously know how to deliver.

We hope you enjoy and feel free to send in your own listener tale to Morbidpodcast@gmail.com with "listener tale" somewhere in the subject line :)

    the Yorkshire Ripper Part 2

    the Yorkshire Ripper Part 2

    Part two of the Yorkshire Rippers, unfortunately, includes many many more murders and Peter Sutcliffe continuing to evade law enforcement. So many women had to lose their lives and still, Peter seemed untouchable. We also discuss the unbelievable way this case was handled in the press and how the victims were treated as well.
    Luckily, toward the end of this episode, you’ll hear that Peter started to lose it a bit, and made some stupid (but lucky for us) mistakes. Law enforcement would get a bit of a clue that led straight to Peter, but would it be enough to stop him in his tracks and arrest him right there on the spot? Well, you’re about to find out!

    The Yorkshire Ripper Part 1

    The Yorkshire Ripper Part 1

    Peter Sutcliffe, who would later become known as the Yorkshire Ripper, is probably one of the gnarlier serial killers we have covered. Throughout the 70’s he terrorized the streets of Yorkshire, brutally assaulting and murdering women he believed to be sex workers. In part one Alaina explains to us how he slowly became this monster, his first attacks and ends on a survivor that would eventually help lead the police to Peter. In part two, unfortunately there are more attacks and murders to tell but have no fear, this sadistic killer would eventually be stopped.

    The Violent Deaths of Bog Bodies

    The Violent Deaths of Bog Bodies

    Alaina brings us something a little different this week, BOG BODIES! All across the world in different bogs, bodies have been found almost perfectly preserved. All because of a simple little landscaping tool: Peat Moss. And your peat moss might just be haunted. Alaina tells us of 9 different Bog Bodies that have been discovered throughout the years, one of which landed a murderer in prison for the rest of his life. And if you love this episode, don’t worry there are plenty more Bog Bodies to be covered in the future.

    The Murder of Molly McLaren

    The Murder of Molly McLaren

    Molly McLaren was just starting out at University when she met Joshua Stimpson via tinder. The two of them seemed to have a lot in common and hit it off instantly. Josh told Molly that she was his first real girlfriend, and that was comforting to her because he was her first serious relationship. In all reality Josh was lying, he had dated women in the past and actually terrorized many of them. Molly would soon learn that he was a dangerous individual, and took all the right steps to get away from him. But he was a vile, sick and twisted individual who simply couldn’t handle hearing “no.” from a woman.
