However, when she approached her daughter, it soon became apparent that she was deceased. Fear engulfed the community of Hartford, Wisconsin, but the investigation would reveal that somebody close to the family had been harboring dark and disturbing fantasies.

    104: Natalie Henderson & Carter Davis

    Roswell is a city in north Fulton County, Georgia. It is the home of around 95,000 residents. Despite the fact that it’s a relatively large city, it still has a quaint feel to it. Canton Street in downtown Roswell is always teeming with shoppers or those stopping for a bite to eat with friends. Each year, they hold a Memorial Day celebration; people from all across the state flock to join in on the festivities. In August of 2016, however, Roswell was the scene of the double murder of two teenagers who had their whole lives ahead of them. Fear immediately swept over the city as investigators scrambled to uncover what had taken place and why…

    Introducing: The Devil Within

    Introducing: The Devil Within

    It’s a case that has haunted Jefferson Township, New Jersey, for more than 30 years. On a snowy January night, 14-year-old Tommy Sullivan did the unthinkable: he murdered his mother in cold blood, set fire to their house, and then took his own life.

    Out of the flames of this horrible tragedy, investigations revealed that Tommy was, himself, a part of a Satanic Cult, sparking a nationwide hysteria now known as the “Satanic Panic”

    This monumental moment in American culture led to communities nationwide enforcing draconian measures to protect their children from what they perceived to be the devil’s influence. Even the Catholic church was convinced this was a case of demonic possession.

    On the new podcast, THE DEVIL WITHIN, the truth of the grisly murder is finally revealed.

    Did Tommy act alone? Did he really commit suicide? Is his cult still in power? THE DEVIL WITHIN finally sheds light on questions left unanswered for decades...

    103: Phoenix Sinclair

    It was early March of 2006 when a 12-year-old boy came forward to police in Winnipeg, Canada, to reveal a disturbing secret. He informed police that his 5-year-old stepsister had been systematically abused and then murdered the year beforehand and then secretly buried. An investigation into his claims would reveal many systemic failures in the system entrusted to protect children.

    102: Elizabeth & Katie Edwards

    It was the 15th of April, 2016, when police in Spalding, Lincolnshire, knocked on the front door of a semi-detached home on Dawson Avenue. It was the home of 49-year-old Elizabeth Edwards and her two daughters, 13-year-old Katie and 14-year-old Kim. Police were there after receiving a report that Katie and Kim had been absent from school. After receiving no response, police would break down the door and uncover a crime scene quite unlike anything that the small community had ever experienced beforehand.

    It was a pleasant autumn morning in Haddon Township, New Jersey, on 13 October, 2015. The homes along the tree-lined streets of Cooper Street and Virginia Avenue were all decorated in preparation of Halloween. That morning, however, residents awoke to police canvassing the streets and a helicopter hovering overhead. Unbeknownst to the locals, something terrible had transpired in their quiet community overnight, something that would strike fear into the heart of parents across the township.

Well researched and honors victims so well

Love your cadence and accent! Ignore everyone who says otherwise!

Every episode is well researched, and honors the lives of victims. Just joined Patreon! Highly recommend joining! Well worth it and the lowest tiers are only 1.00-5.00 per month.

Yes there are tons of adds if you don’t join but that is true of every podcast.

Evansmine ,

Can’t

I wish I could tolerate the narrator but I just can’t. The accent plus the over annunciations of her consonants, it’s like her mouth is right on the microphone and I can hear every click of the tongue. I just can’t.

OskieJ0 ,

Wowwy wow wow

I always look forword to seeing that you have a new episode to download. Can't get enough!
