    Hearts & Death

    Hearts & Death

    Valentine’s Day is usually a day for lovers, one where they can dote on each other and express their love in the form of special time and presents. But in today’s episode we learn that for some, the happiness of Valentine’s Day can be replaced with heartache, fear, and even death. Gerald Dean Krein Jr. was a depressed man who desired to take others down with him when he was ready to complete suicide. He planned an extravagant sex and suicide party for Valentine's Day 2005. Miles away and years prior Delmar Anholt Jr., a troubled man about to become a father, would commit one of the most atrocious killings in Oregon’s history on Valentine’s Day 1982.

    Any Hate

    Any Hate

    In the last few weeks, we’ve seen just how much can happen when a group of white supremacists gets together. In 2011, the terror came not from a large group, but a young couple with shared beliefs in hatred. Once they found each other through white supremacist groups, Joey Pederson and Holly Grisby went on a 10-day spree of terror through Washington, Oregon, and California that would leave four dead and the west coast shaken.

    Uncle Joe

    Uncle Joe

    The man now known as “The Longview Serial Killer” was once a child victim to a time in our history where native children were plucked out of their homes to be adopted out to white middle-class families. The little boy who was affectionately called “Joey” by his adoptive mother, grew up to be a terrifying nightmare to many children in the Pacific Northwest. Today’s case is about Joseph Kondro. He found the vulnerable, the less fortunate, and the impressionable and lulled them into safety with his affection and attention. “Uncle Joe” as they called him would steal their childhood and leave them scarred, but for some little girls, he also stole their lives.

    Trunks

    Trunks

    Small, tight, confined spaces. Not many people like them and most of us have been feeling claustrophobic while stuck at home. One of those small places would be the final resting place for 4 women in the Portland area. It seems shocking and unexpected, especially for Portland, but many people end up having their bodies stuffed in the trunks of cars. In this episode, Murder in the Rain will share four stories about women who were taken, killed, and hidden in their own trunks.

    Ice Cold

    Ice Cold

    It’s the holiday season and many of us are celebrating with a Christmas tree and the promise of Santa’s visit. While this is normally a happy time for us all, it’s a time for great sadness for one family in Washington State. Ed and Minnie Maurin were an elderly couple who disappeared just before a Christmas party in 1985. Their bodies would later be discovered and the entire town would be left asking what really happened to them. The case quickly grew cold and for over 30 years we were left wondering if anyone would be held accountable for their deaths. In the latest episode, we will share how one man bravely broke his silence and helped uncover a secret buried in this small town.

    The Wrong Track

    The Wrong Track

    Kurt Cobain. A household name synonymous with grunge, the 90’s and unfortunately, suicide. Although it’s yet to be proven otherwise, for 26 years rumors have persisted that someone besides Kurt took his life. In this week’s episode, Murder In The Rain will examine Kurt’s childhood, his history of mental health and addiction struggles and the so-called evidence presented by a private detective with his own agenda, preventing Kurt from resting in peace. So did Kurt hate his life and want to die or did something more nefarious take place?

Please describe rape as “rape”

I like this podcast a lot but only gave four stars because sooooo many times the narrator will say “sex” instead of “rape,” including minors, bound womxn, and dead bodies. It’s rape, let’s call it what it is.

Obsessed with race

The hosts are obsessed with race and of presuming it is the reason behind everyone's actions.

&$@""&@ ,

Episode 40

I really enjoy this podcast. But whoever read this one episode, talked way to fast. It seemed to me that it was rushed. Some what disappointed.

Please disregard this review.
