    Tragic Death of Victoria Martens

    Tragic Death of Victoria Martens

    This week we are featuring a throwback episode from We're All Screwed following the guilty verdict of Fabian Gonzalez. RIP Sweet Angel

    Anika tells the story of young Victoria Martens. Victoria was an innocent child who was failed over and over by her mother. She continuously allowed people she hardly knew or didn't know at all around her child in order to have companionship. She attempted to be a good mom for a short period of time, but it was not enough. Should we hold neglectful parents responsible for murder when they are so passive they allow harm to come to their child? Let us know your thoughts!



    BIG LOVE LACY &  ANIKA

    Paul Michael Stefani - Weepy Voiced Killer

    Paul Michael Stefani - Weepy Voiced Killer

    Paul Michael Stefani was more commonly known as the weepy voiced killer. This pathetic man used his Catholic upbringing to inspire his confessions to police after he finished his gruesome crimes. This episode does contain 911 calls that are not easy on the ear holes so BEWARE. After he was caught and convicted on what the prosecution knew they could prove he was sent to prison. In prison he knew he was at the end of his life after a cancer diagnoses so Stefani confessed to the rest of his crimes for closure for himself. 

    Episode Quotes
    Killing was, seemed to me, the thing you were supposed to do that was part of life. Driving a car was part of life. Eating food was part of life. To me, it seemed like killing was part of life, until I did it.- Paul Michael Stefani

    The Vampire of Sacramento

    The Vampire of Sacramento

    Lacy is joined this week to discuss Richard Trenton Chase who was a serial killer, cannibal, and necrophile who killed six people in 1977 and 1978 in Sacramento, California. He was nicknamed The Vampire of Sacramento because he drank his victims' blood and cannibalized their remains. This case was one I came by looking for something different, and I had no idea what I was getting into with this guy. This case is not for the faint of heart.

Most twisted stories!

I appreciate a few things about this podcast:
- The level of gruesome detail is far beyond what other true crime podcasts delve into.
- Lacy always has some abstract take on the minutiae of the case.
I can appreciate that they are still in the infancy of the podcast, and I’ve noticed growth since the beginning.
