    Marlene Warren

    Marlene Warren

    May 26, 1990. Wellington, Florida. Forty-year-old mother of one, Marlene Warren, was enjoying breakfast with her son and his friends when she heard a knock at the door of her home in the Wellington Aero Club in Palm Beach County, Florida.

    Marlene walked from the kitchen to the front door to be greeted by a clown holding a basket of red and white flowers and two balloons.

    “Oh, how lovely!” she exclaimed as she opened the door and reached out to take the gifts.

    The clown produced a handgun and shot Marlene point-blank in the face. Who would want to kill Marlene and why? The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office was determined to find those answers.

    Introducing BADLANDS Season 4: HOLLYWOODLAND

    Introducing BADLANDS Season 4: HOLLYWOODLAND

    Introducing the true crime podcast Badlands— a show that dives deep into the real stories of the famous at their most infamous.

    Each season, host Jake Brennan, explores the real life crimes and scandalous careers of the world’s most popular cultural figures. In an all new season, he tells the stories of A-listers whose misdeeds and career lows are as unbelievable as some of their films’ plot twists—like the story of Sharon Tate, who was caught up in a strange scene long before members of the Manson family came along. Or the story of how Judy Garland’s lifelong addiction to pills sent her over the rainbow much too soon. And the story about how Winona Ryder was connected to a child kidnapping case in her hometown. These and many more.

    For all that and more, listen to Badlands. Get new episodes every Wednesday wherever you get your podcasts, or binge all of season four right now only on Amazon Music.

Britt Leary ,

Amazing

I’ve always had a fascination with Israel
Keyes because we will never truly know who and how many people he killed. I have a lot of respect for Josh because he is trying to connect and give names to many of the Doe’s that do not have one and closure to the families that deserve it. He is doing what law enforcement gave up on, because Keyes is dead. I have no connection to any victims, but I am grateful for what you are doing. The podcast is very well done also, and I cannot wait for more. -just a weird woman from NC

Absolutely Terrific

I really enjoy this podcast as they do a phenomenal job recapping true crime.

Meh

So monotoned it is unbearable. Take a shot for how many times they say each other’s names, cause it’ll be the only way to get through the slow-moving episodes.
