    Mary Kennan O'Connor Part2

    Mary Kennan O'Connor Part2

    In part one of the Mary Keenan O’Connor case, we discussed Mary’s early life and the murder of 5-year-old Nancy Glenn. Mary confessed to accidentally hitting Nancy in a fit of rage, but she refused to sign the confession. She denied putting Nancy face down in a mud puddle. The prosecution argued that Mary lured Nancy out to the crime scene and deliberately held her down in the puddle. In this episode, we’ll discuss the verdict of Mary’s murder trial and the remainder of her life and crimes.

    Join Mike and Gibby as they finish up the Mary O'Connor story. People were shocked at the jury's verdict at Mary's trial. There were accusations of bad police work and juror misconduct. But, Mary was free to live her life, and she married and had children. 30 years later, Mary became embroiled in a murder mystery again when a wife and mother was murdered, and two young children were severely beaten. Could Mary O'Connor beat another murder wrap?

This was quickly proven false, but the details of the crime that came out were shocking and disturbing to Philadelphia residents. In this episode, we will discuss the murder of 5-year-old Nancy Glenn, Mary’s confession, and her infamous murder trial.

    Olga Rutterschmidt and Helen Golay

    Olga Rutterschmidt and Helen Golay

    Olga Ruttschmidt and Helen Golay are two female serial killers who operated in California. At the time of their arrest in 2008, Helen Golay was 75, and Olga Rutterschmidt was 73. The two women preyed upon vulnerable homeless men. At first, they offered them help in the form of a place to stay and food. But, their only goal was to get these men to sign life insurance policies with them as the beneficiaries so that they could collect millions.

    Join Mike and Gibby as they discuss Olga Ruttschmidt and Helen Golay. Olga and Helen are a rarity in the world of true crime, two elderly female serial killers working together. They viewed their targets as investments, often paying their way for years before killing their victims. During that time, they worked to gain their trust so that they would sign a life insurance policy. Then, the two would use their signature to take out many more.

    Raffi Kodikian

    Raffi Kodikian

    In July 1999 two best friends set off for a cross-country road trip together. After a camping trip in the New Mexico desert went horribly wrong, one of them didn’t survive. Raffi Kodikian told the park ranger who came to his rescue that he killed his best friend because he thought they were dying of dehydration. Investigators didn’t believe his story and charged him with murder. 

    Join Mike and Gibby as they discuss Raffi Kodikian and the murder of David Coughlin. These two guys were the best of friends. Even investigators working for the prosecution said that when they interviewed people who knew them. Raffi always maintained that David asked Raffi to kill him. He also said the plan was for them to die together. The authorities had a hard time believing things played out as Raffi said they did but as one official said, "you don't get to kill someone in New Mexico even if they ask you to."

Amazing podcast

I’ve been listening to this podcast for 5 years. I love their dynamic and learning about murder cases while having fun listening. Mike and gibby bring a light hearted feeling to such gruesome topics. I always binge listen to their podcasts

Katrina-2000 ,

Ok. Reminds me of old am radio shows

OK, though it appears that the shows aren't scripted; at least, that's the impression listeners may get.. I would prefer something better organized. There is way too much vamping--passing time to fill up dead space. Also, the About page says the show delves into "what makes these killers tick" but really does not. Recommend: spending more time in production and consider adding some interviews. If you like the format of classic am radio news shows, including the banter between hosts, then this is for you. Biggest negative: Wondery + subscribers get ad free listening, but NOT FOR THIS PODCAST. Shame!
