    The Suppressor (PODCAST EXCLUSIVE EPISODE)

    The Suppressor (PODCAST EXCLUSIVE EPISODE)

    On a hot summer night in Arizona, a man slept soundly in his second-floor bedroom with his beloved pit bull terrier curled up at his feet. Suddenly, the dog’s ears perked up. A sound came from the roof, then the bedroom window shattered and sent glass flying across the room. But no matter how much the dog barked, his owner didn't move. What happened in that bedroom would give a rookie homicide detective her first major case – a case with a series of twists that seemed to come right out of a soap opera.

    Fan Favorite - "Bathroom Man"

    Fan Favorite - "Bathroom Man"

    This story is a fan favorite that was previously published as Episode 55.

    In the fall of 1994, a 52-year-old woman pulled into the driveway of her home in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, and then turned her car off. As she sat there for a minute, chatting with her daughter on her car phone, she was suddenly startled by someone running up and knocking on her window. When she turned to see who it was, she saw this big guy standing in the driveway who she didn't recognize. But when she rolled the window down just a couple of inches, and she was able to hear what this guy was saying, the woman relaxed. Then she got out of her car, shut the door behind her, and then led this guy into her home with her… That man would later be dubbed, “The Bathroom Man,” and he was there to do something horrific to that woman.

    Deadly Revelation

    Deadly Revelation

    In 1969, an adventure magazine reporter named Milt Macklin flew to New Guinea with his film crew to shoot a documentary about a missing person. Milt’s hope was that he was actually going to find this missing person and capture it on film, really pushing his documentary over the top. But, despite shooting all this footage and looking all over the place, they never found the missing person. So Milt ultimately went home and put the film in storage and never even watched it. Well, 40 years later that footage got pulled out of storage because another crew wanted to make their own documentary. And when they watched this footage, they found something totally unbelievable on it. So today, I’m going to tell you the story of what they found, and then more importantly, what it revealed about this missing person. And I will say now, it is highly disturbing.

    Story name, preview & link to original YouTube video:#1 -- "Deadly Revelation" -- 40 years after it was shot, unseen footage would get pulled out of storage, and when it was finally watched, a discovery was made on the tape that totally changed everything people thought they knew about a very famous missing person (Original YouTube link -- https://youtu.be/OMBxxvd64qk?feature=shared)

    The Deadly Present (PODCAST EXCLUSIVE EPISODE)

    The Deadly Present (PODCAST EXCLUSIVE EPISODE)

    One morning in November of 2011, a wheelchair-bound woman and her full-time caregiver were at home when there was a knock on the front door. The caregiver got up and walked over to the door and opened it up, but there was no one there. And when she looked up and down the road, she didn't see anyone walking or driving away. Then, she looked down and noticed there was what appeared to be a gift on the porch, but there was no tag on it. So, the caregiver brought it inside and put it on the kitchen table, and told the woman she was caring for that because this was not labeled, they shouldn't open it for now. However, later that day, when still they didn't know who had sent it or what it was, the woman in the wheelchair was curious, so she secretly grabbed the gift off the kitchen table and opened it up. And the second she did, absolute chaos ensued...
