    133. Acid Attack : The Betrayal of Naomi Oni

    133. Acid Attack : The Betrayal of Naomi Oni

    Naomi Oni was an extremely smart and respectful young lady. She was always taught to place more value in who she is as a person, as opposed to how she looked. She had a tight group of friends and just like a lot of teens, they were all into celebrity culture, fashion, make-up, and music. On the 29th of December 2012, Naomi set off as usual to work her shift in Stratford. After finishing at 11:30 pm, she left the store with her colleagues and as a group, they all walked to the train station where they eventually went separate ways. As she exited the bus and began walking the short distance home, something caught her eye. She felt uneasy, but what would happen next would change Naomi forever.

    Introducing The Grand Scheme: Snatching Sinatra

    Introducing The Grand Scheme: Snatching Sinatra

    Hosted and narrated by John Stamos, The Grand Scheme: Snatching Sinatra is a complicated, nuanced story of one imperfect man trying to redeem himself by pulling off the perfect crime. Did you ever feel like everything’s broken, and it’s your job to fix it? That’s how Barry Keenan was feeling back in 1963. He was broke, unemployed, hooked on booze and pills, and his family was falling apart. Barry needed a miracle. And against all odds, he got one. One day the voice of God came over the radio in Barry’s car and told him there was a simple solution to all his problems: all he had to do was kidnap Frank Sinatra, Jr. For the first time ever, Barry Keenan shares his version of the bizarre story in his own words, from beginning to end.

    This is just a preview of The Grand Scheme: Snatching Sinatra, but you can listen to full episodes at wondery.fm/TrueCrimeGrandScheme

    132. The Wicked Stepmother: Judith Hawkey

    132. The Wicked Stepmother: Judith Hawkey

    Like many children, Corey Breininger was being raised by his father and grandparents as his mother was not currently in his life. The arrangement worked well for all of them. When Robert Breininger met a woman by the name of Judith Hawkey, there was an immediate connection because the family could once again become a unit. Corey was only 4 years old when he met Judith, and at that young age, he could not yet know how much Judith would change his life and make what should be a little boy’s dream of having a family turn into a nightmare that no one would believe.

    Join Jen and Cam on this episode of OTCP as we discuss ‘The Wicked Stepmother: Judith Hawkey.’

    131. Behind Closed Doors: The Kansas City Butcher Robert Berdella

    ***********Graphic Content Warning***************

    Introducing: Killer Psyche

    Introducing: Killer Psyche

    When a shocking crime occurs, people ask “WHY?” Was it about power, ego, or revenge? On KILLER PSYCHE, retired FBI criminal profiler Candice DeLong draws on her decades of experience to reveal why these murderers and criminals committed these acts. She will reveal fascinating new details about what drove these people, including cases she worked on first-hand. Candice has been called the FBI’s “real-life Clarice Starling,” and she will share specific psychological methods and profiling techniques that experts use to understand the deepest part of the most complex, fascinating, and twisted minds, from the Unabomber to Dr. Death to El Chapo.

    130. The Case of the Honolulu Strangler

    130. The Case of the Honolulu Strangler

    Today we go to Paradise where a predator stalked and murdered his victims over thirty years ago. It was the mid-late 1980’s and Hawaii was about to be struck by their first serial killer. It is May 29, 1985 when 25-year-old Vicky Gail Purdy was reported missing by her husband. Vicki had gone out with friends in Waikiki but never came home. This would be the first in a series of murders that would plague the island.

    Join Jen and Cam as we discuss ‘The Case of the Honolulu Strangler’ on this episode of Our True Crime Podcast.

    Please note: the recording takes a turn at the end and we wanted you all to hear it as, well, Cam gets quite the shock. Also, I apologize for my course language, I can’t even remember saying those words. It is shocking, to say the least.

    As always our listener discretion is by our bestie @octoberpodVHS.

Found a new favorite!

I have been looking for a new true crime podcast to add to the library and somehow stumbled upon this gem! Love the stories and the jokes keep them coming.

You want a good story…

This is it! These ladies do a tremendous job of telling you the story with great detail often throwing in a bit of humor to ease the darkness. They are well spoken, but when they make a mistake, they make fun of themselves. They are down to earth and you can tell they love what they do. Give it a try- you will love it! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Grammatical Errors are Cringeworthy

It’s not “had went”, it’s had gone…

Great podcast but singing and all the banter is distracting
