    The Death of Kendrick Johnson

    On January 11, 2013, the body of 17-year-old Kendrick Johnson was found inside a vertical rolled up gym mat in the gymnasium of his high school in Valdosta, Georgia. A preliminary investigation and autopsy concluded that the death was accidental. But a second autopsy determined that he died from blunt force trauma. So which was it - a tragic accidental death? Or was it murder?

    The Los Angeles Murder House

    The Los Angeles Murder House

    In the early morning hours of December 6, 1959, the residents of a wealthy section of Los Feliz, Los Angeles, woke up to the sound of a blood curdling scream. Their 18-year-old neighbor, Judye Perelson, was begging for her life from inside her home. "Don't kill me" she shouted at her father, the esteemed doctor, Harold Perelson, who had attacked her with a ball-peen hammer. Judye survived, though other members of the family weren't so lucky. And though the surviving Perelsons moved out of the home where this tragedy took place, the echo of the murders remained, and the once great Los Angeles mansion turned into an infamous house of horrors.

    The Tylenol Murders (From "Crimes of the Centuries")

    The Tylenol Murders (From "Crimes of the Centuries")

    Strangers! We're taking a break this week, but we wanted to share the FASCINATING AND TERRIFYING TALE of the "The Tylenol Murders" from another Obsessed Network podcast: "Crimes of the Centuries"




    When 52-year-old Bruce Nickell suddenly dropped dead in Washington state, investigators at first thought he'd died of a heart attack. But then a second person collapsed, and police realized that the two victims had both taken the painkiller Excedrin. Suddenly, they realized they were dealing with a copycat of a case that had haunted federal investigators for nearly 15 years. 




    In that earlier case, seven people died when someone randomly tampered with the over-the-counter painkiller to replace some of the powder inside capsules with enough cyanide to kill an entire family. Those deaths changed how medication is packaged nationwide and made it a federal crime to tamper with such products -- a legal change that years later came back to bite Nickell's killer.

Thanks

I think it was well made and interesting to listen to. I like that she can be witty and funny and also serious. She talks about gruesome things but she plays it off and weighs it out with a joke or some sarcasm. I appreciate that because I am grossed out easily. Thank you for a fun way to pass time.

LCKMA ,

Too political

Needs a new host that can keep their political views out of the episodes. Couldn’t even get through the first 10 minutes of the first two episodes without some form of politics.

OD on Sarcasm ,

Too Sarcastic

I enjoy the topics and overall content but the delivery of the stories has way too many asides and too much sarcasm which distracts from the entire podcast.
