    EP23 | The Worcester 6: The Cold Storage Warehouse Fire, Worcester, Massachusetts (part two)

    EP23 | The Worcester 6: The Cold Storage Warehouse Fire, Worcester, Massachusetts (part two)

    Part two of two - No event has impacted the city of Worcester more in the last 21 years than the Worcester Cold Storage Warehouse Fire. It showed what the city and its people are made of. On December 3, 1999, a fire broke out at an abandoned warehouse at 266 Franklin Street in Worcester, Massachusetts - a massive, six story windowless concrete box of a structure. Its maze-like design proved to be deadly.

    The fire raged undetected for nearly two hours. More than 25 firefighters went in to fight it back. Six of those men didn't make it out. The Worcester Six: Paul Brotherton, Jeremiah Lucey,  Thomas Spencer, Timothy Jackson, James Lyons, and Joseph McGuirk.

    Thomas Levesque and Julie Barnes set the deadly fire. But could they be held responsible?

    And what is the legacy these six men left for the city? I will tell you.

    EP21 | Karina Holmer, The Case That Haunts Boston with Emily Sweeney of the Boston Globe

    EP21 | Karina Holmer, The Case That Haunts Boston with Emily Sweeney of the Boston Globe

    On the evening of June 21, 1996, 20-year-old Karina Holmer went with friends to her favorite Boston club to celebrate summer solstice - a big holiday in her homeland of Sweden. She was reported missing by friends and it was discovered that she was the woman found mutilated in the trash. Her gruesome murder remains unsolved. I want to change that.
     
    I’ve been planning on doing this case for a long time. It has been at the top of my list of those that have most impacted me, one that troubles me. Her story is particularly sensitive because it remains unsolved. 
    June 22 marked 25 years since Karina was seen alive. She has been gone longer than she lived. I always remember her because June 22 is my birthday, and it was the summer before I started college in Boston. Karina's identity was pushed in the press as "The Swedish Nanny," she was the girl in the dumpster. It is a terrifying story. 
    Today, we are no closer to learning who did this and why. I’d settle for who. The why. Who knows. Motive is far less important now. We would like to know. Of course. But 25 years in, the likelihood that her case is cracked is slim. 
    June 22, 1996. The last time Karina Holmer was seen alive.
    I want to see her case solved. And I have a plan to try.

    EP20 | Abel Harris: The Shooting at Bunratty's, Allston, Mass with David Giammatteo

    EP20 | Abel Harris: The Shooting at Bunratty's, Allston, Mass with David Giammatteo

    Allston Rock City: The events of August 1, 1987 are difficult to reconcile. A man nobody knew walked in to a rock club and shot one of the most beloved members of their misfit family. 

    The rock band Bang was wrapping up their set when a man who had been asked to leave hours before returned to the club, pulled out a gun and started shooting. It took no time for patrons and regulars to figure out the sounds were not coming from the band and everyone ran for cover. 
     
    That’s when bartender Abel Harris hopped over the bar and approached the shooter to reason with him to stop firing. Instead of talking, the man raised the gun and put two bullets into Abel's head. 
    The man no one knew left the club and the hunt was on to find out who did this to to someone everyone loved, Abel Harris.

    EP19 | Victoria Snelgrove: No Triumph, All Tragedy, Boston, Massachusetts (with journalist and author, Dave Wedge)

    EP19 | Victoria Snelgrove: No Triumph, All Tragedy, Boston, Massachusetts (with journalist and author, Dave Wedge)

    No Triumph, All tragedy. Red Sox fan and college student, Victoria Snelgrove, was shot and killed by a Boston police officer using riot gear to fend off an out of control crowd.

    On Oct 20, 2004, the Red Sox clinched the championship and were headed to the World Series after a tense series against the New York Yankees - our bitter rivals. We hadn’t won in 86 years thus perpetuating the "Curse of the Bambino". Despite the game being played in New York, people from all around flooded into the streets and headed to Fenway Park.

    What should have been a  grand celebration turned tragic when an unprepared police department pulled out riot gear to fend off swarms of revelers. A Boston police officer shot an innocent bystander - 21-year-old Emerson College student, Victoria Snelgrove - in the face.

    Everything is lethal if you don't know what you're doing.

    EP18 | Michael Costin: Reading Hockey Dad Death, Reading, Massachusetts

    On July 5, 2000, a group of local kids headed to the skating rink for stick practice. It was a common occurrence. Something they'd done dozens of times. Except for some of them, it will be for the last time. Two dads got in a heated face off. One of the dads, Michael Costin, ended up dead. This case was covered nationwide and became synonymous with parental violence in youth sports.

Joanne Fettig woods ,

Love this podcast!

I know exactly where she is talking about!

AnniePantsch ,

POW! Right in my soundholes.

Tiring of the regurgitated stories and reruns of my other subscriptions, I searched for a more locally-based option. I wanted New England stories. Here comes Anngelle shashay her way effortlessly into my soundholes. The research is comprehensive, the delivery is coherent, the personal side stories are unassuming but sweet and more often than not the no b.s. footnotes make me snort laugh. I’m looking forward to whatever story comes next. Thanks so much! Tell your dog I said hi.

My Fav True Crime Podcast

Love the humor infused into the conveying of details, and how she gives town stats at the beginning of wach story. There's a great balance of story telling, humor and New England factoids. My hometown (Hopkinton) episode is my favorite so far. I hope she covers the Holliston story of Kenneth Seguin, would love to hear since I remember being a child when this happened and how shocking it was.
