    13: Lizzie Borden, Part 1

    13: Lizzie Borden, Part 1

    Lizzie Borden was an American woman tried and acquitted of the August 4, 1892 axe murders of her father and stepmother in Fall River, Massachusetts. No one else was charged in the murders, and despite ostracism from other residents, Borden spent the remainder of her life in Fall River. She died of pneumonia at age 66, just days before the death of her older sister, Emma.

    The Borden murders and trial received widespread publicity throughout the United States, and along with Borden herself, they remain a topic in American popular culture to the present day. They have been depicted in numerous films, theatrical productions, literary works, and folk rhymes and are still very well-known in the Fall River area.

    Join Shane as he breaks down the crimes behind the Borden murders in this crime series.

    12: Murder of Hazel Drew, Part 4

    12: Murder of Hazel Drew, Part 4

    More than a century ago, the body of 20 year old Hazel Drew was found floating in Teal's Pond near the bottom of Taborton Mountain in Sand Lake, New York. An autopsy found that she'd died of blunt head trauma to the back of her head prior to ending up in the pond. Her death was labeled a murder.

    In the weeks that followed the discovery of her body, many suspects were investigated including among others: her recently widowed, and suicidal, uncle William Taylor who lived nearby; a simple-minded 17 year old farm hand named Frank Smith, who fancied Hazel and his friend Rudolph Gunderman, a charcoal peddler, the two of whom had seen her along Taborton Road, near the pond, shortly before she died; and a pair of unknown men seen by a couple driving by, about the time the murder was supposed to have taken place, at the scene - one waiting in a horse drawn runabout, and the other beating around in the bushes near the pond, as if looking for something!

    What made Hazel's murder all the more mysterious, was that only a few days prior to it, she'd suddenly, and unexpectedly left her job as a domestic at the home of Professor E.R. Cary in Troy, and nobody knew what her intentions were. Also her luggage had been left - checked at the train station.

    In the end, all the leads the investigators had ran out. Nobody was ever arrested or charged with the murder, and to this day - Hazel Drew's murder remains unsolved!

Love the host

This podcast has something going for it that a lot of others lack, and that is the utter sincerity and earnestness of its host— it lends A dignity and authenticity it is much appreciated.
(I have a great idea! The show should gather up all of the irritating super short episodes and re-release them grouped together in New Omnibus episodes. **see the British podcast called Murder Mile to get an idea of how to do this in a fantastic way.) Best of luck to you, you are doing the work of the Almighty on earth.

So good!

I am so glad I found this podcast. I enjoy hearing about cases that are new to me. Most of all, I appreciate how compassionate Shane is and how respectful he is. He truly cares about these victims and treats them with dignity.

Too short

The episodes are good but too short. I wish he would string them together into one long episode instead of several micro episodes. By the time the next episode is released, I don’t remember what the story is about.
