    The Kirtland Cult Killings: Part 1 & 2

    On today’s episode we are going to start a look into the Kirtland Cult Killings from 1989 in Kirtland, Ohio. Located in Lake County and only a 25 minute drive east of Cleveland the small town became a national story in January 1990. After moving to town, Lundgren became a lay minister in Kirtland for the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. 
    Dale Luffman, president of the northeast Ohio chapter of the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, said Lundgren worked from 1985 to 1987 at a church temple in Kirtland. Lundgren conducted tours for the public of the church's 153-year-old temple in Kirtland when he moved from Kansas City, Mo.

    Joseph Paul Franklin- America's Racist Serial Killer

    Joseph Paul Franklin- America's Racist Serial Killer

    On this week's episode we look into the horrible crimes committed by racist Joseph Paul Franklin. From 1977-1980, Franklin raged his very own race war as he traveled the country murdering at his discretion. This is truly one of the worst people I have ever researched.
    A riveting, cautionary tale rooted in history that continues to echo today, The Killer's Shadow is a terrifying and essential exploration of the criminal personality in the vile grip of extremism and what happens when rage-filled speech evolves into deadly action and hatred of the “other" is allowed full reign. -The Killer's Shadow

    The Sodder Family Christmas Mystery

    The Sodder Family Christmas Mystery

    On this week’s episode we will take a look back to 19-45 when a mysterious fire broke out on Christmas Eve at the Sodder family home.
    One of my main sources for this story comes from an article written in the New York Post from 1975, detailing the strange circumstances surrounding this fire.
    The kids had received their presents earlier in the evening so they were excited and wanted to play with their toys. 
    The parents went to bed at 10:30 p.m.
    Jennie began to smell smoke around 1:30 am and she realized it was filling the room. The house was on fire.
    Stricken with fear all the Sodder’s could do was watch their house burn to the ground. 
    There was no sign of the five children; they were not outside and efforts to spot them through the windows of the blazing house failed. Authorities decided that the five children perished in the blaze. Yet no remains, no bones, no trace of human tissue, were found in the ruins...
    The case remains unsolved...
