The Violent Deaths of Bog Bodies
This episode comes out for free on 12/7, and is available early and ad-free for Wondery+ subscribers.
Alaina brings us something a little different this week, BOG BODIES! All across the world in different bogs, bodies have been found almost perfectly preserved. All because of a simple little landscaping tool: Peat Moss. And your peat moss might just be haunted. Alaina tells us of 9 different Bog Bodies that have been discovered throughout the years, one of which landed a murderer in prison for the rest of his life. And if you love this episode, don’t worry there are plenty more Bog Bodies to be covered in the future.

The Murder of Molly McLaren
This episode comes out for free on 12/5, and is available early and ad-free for Wondery+ subscribers.
Molly McLaren was just starting out at University when she met Joshua Stimpson via tinder. The two of them seemed to have a lot in common and hit it off instantly. Josh told Molly that she was his first real girlfriend, and that was comforting to her because he was her first serious relationship. In all reality Josh was lying, he had dated women in the past and actually terrorized many of them. Molly would soon learn that he was a dangerous individual, and took all the right steps to get away from him. But he was a vile, sick and twisted individual who simply couldn’t handle hearing “no.” from a woman.

True Crime & True Hauntings with Sam & Colby!
This week Alaina and Ash got to tag along with some pretty well known Youtubers, Sam & Colby to investigate the USS Salem. The USS Salem, though it didn’t see combat, saw a lot of tragedy and a lot of death during the time it was commissioned. There were many, many deaths on board which led to many hauntings that still take place today! In this episode we talk about the Vilisca axe murder house, demonic attachments and our incredibly chilling experience on board!

The Murder of Sherri Rasmussen
In 1986 Sherri Rasmussen was brutally murdered in her own home. She was a young nurse who had already worked her way to becoming the director of nursing at Glendale Adventist Medical Center and had just gotten married three months earlier. But when her husband John returned home on February 24th, 1986 he found her laying dead on their living room floor and their home absolutely ransacked. Was this a case of robbery gone wrong or was someone in a position of power responsible?
