    Episode 87: The Horrific Crimes of Howard Ave - The Sad Story of Jeanette Maples

    Episode 87: The Horrific Crimes of Howard Ave - The Sad Story of Jeanette Maples

    The story of 15-year-old Jeanette Marie Maples seems far too horrific to be true. Even her mother Angela had a childhood marred by the sad story of tragedy and abuse. At each and every turn all of the possible safety nets and child welfare systems available failed.  Despite clearly well-intentioned attempts to protect Jeanette, DHS would come under fire for their lack of follow through in her case.  We couldn't help but recall from Episode 33 the absolutely chilling story of Theresa Knorr.

    The dreadful details of her death would shock both the Bend and Eugene communities where she had once lived.  Along with her childhood friends, her sadly, long estranged family,  as well as those touched by Jeanette's case whether law enforcement, journalist, or medical professional were left to wonder - how were the atrocious crimes that took place, escalating within the Howard Ave. home leading up to her death happen?  How could violent abuse so depraved seemingly go unnoticed?

    Episode 86: Sold Down the River by a Gunnysack & The Story of the Supernatural Axe

    Episode 86: Sold Down the River by a Gunnysack & The Story of the Supernatural Axe

    We decided to do something a little bit different this week and try a Half & Half Episode.  No matter what flavor of creepy you're craving this episode will have something for you!  💀💰 👻❄️ 

    Caitlyn's Story - Sold Down the River by a Gunnysack
    Hauled back to Hood River from Bellingham, Washington our culprit would face justice in a case that makes history not once, not twice, but at least thrice. Frontier justice was swift, if you could get it, just like we've discussed in another other old-timey case series beginning with Episode 53: The Many Mysteries of the Ardenwald Axe Murders. This devious dope may have gotten a lot more than he bargained, however. Many aspects of the case were truly trend setting and revolutionary, though perhaps not the punishment.

    Cassie's story - The Story of the Supernatural Axe
    WINTER IS COMING! So, naturally, we're visiting the snowy North! But we've been there before for several episodes.  Episodes 16 - for Skagway, Alaska Haunt, 31 - the Joshua Wade Homicides, as well as 58 & 59 to find out just how much Kirby D. Anthoney sucks! (just to name a few!) On this trip, we'll learn about a sweet father-daughter duo and their not so sweet demise. 🪓🥶 

    This week we shared a promo for I Hate It, Let's Watch it!

    Episode 85: The Duplicitous Dumbass Duo & a Tacoma Double Homicide - Unsolved Case

    Episode 85: The Duplicitous Dumbass Duo & a Tacoma Double Homicide - Unsolved Case

    This week we brought you a bit of a mixed bag episode.  We promise it will be less awkward than your family dinner Thursday though, well probably.  Speaking of Thursday we also have a little surprise planned for you creepy people in preparation for the long, holiday weekend.  We know there are many reasons to be thankful.  Getting to do a tarot reading for this podcast every week is just one of them for us.  As you listen to this week's episode we wanted to remind you that for every case that is solved whether we find resolution quickly, or years later, there are many more that we just don't have answers for.  Nancy's case is a true crime case that allows us to savor justice.  That's why we're thankful for dumb criminals.  We're also sharing Tacoma Double Homicide - Unsolved Case as well and frankly finally solving that as well would be like the Cool Whip on holiday pie. 

    This week we're sharing a Promo for Spooky Spouses.

    You can find information about the Tacoma Thanksgiving Double Homicide - Unsolved Case at these hyperlinks.  As promised link #1 the video with the latest press release #2.

    A $1000 cash reward was offered for information leading to an arrest in the case by Crime Stoppers.  If you believe you have any information about the case please call 1-800-222-TIPS and of course we’ll include that in the show notes as well.

    We’ve received updates from listeners in those instances before, like in the case of Duane Samples way back from Episode 11.

    Episode 84:The Cline Falls Axe Attack

    Episode 84:The Cline Falls Axe Attack

    How does a story about two college-aged young women from the Ivy League halls of Yale end up in the PNW? Good question! Wanna ride bikes?! Dated ADHD jokes aside  - it really did involve a pretty intense bike ride. You may want to brace yourself and to swear off bike riding and camping for a bit. Honestly, we're exhausted just thinking about it, and this week the story is no different, it only gets worse after dark with the introduction of a very meticulous and duplicitous cowboy.   

    This week we're sharing a Promo for World's Dumbest Criminals.

True crime comedy

If you like true crime and spooky stories with a little lighthearted humor, this is a great listen. The tarot readings are a nice bonus!

Too much crap between snippets of content

I started listening to the Sister City episode and it was TWENTY minutes in before we actually got to the episode content. I’m listening patiently, but the hosts stop between each detail to add in unnecessary banter, jokes and imitations. It just got obnoxious and I couldn’t finish the episode. I have no idea what happened beyond the name of the serial killer, where she was born and that she had 2 sons and I was 35 minutes into the episode. 😒

I’m all about making light of true crime, but this was too much.

Chaos Insurgent ,

Love for the PNW & I’m here for it!!

The hosts are fun to listen to & have an awesome chemistry. They’re having fun making the show and their style brings you in on the fun too! I like the tarot, they have fun guests at times, and I enjoy the mix of paranormal and true crime episodes. It keeps things fresh! ———————————————————— As an aside, before reviewing the pod myself I was reading through a few of the latest ones. If you don’t like something that’s fine but you don’t need to trash people or insult them. It’s just rude. People these days. 🙄
