    The Barbie Doll Kidnapper (Case of Katie Beers)

    The Barbie Doll Kidnapper (Case of Katie Beers)

    “Big John” loved his little apartment. It wasn’t nice but it was his.
    He was in his 40’s and he wanted to decorate it with whatever style he pleased. His bedroom was more of a game room with a mattress on the ground.
    The walk-in closet was wall-to-wall with the newest and latest games. Nintendo games, board games, barbies, you name it. His drawers were stuffed full with candy and his mini-fridge only had soda in it.
    The only thing is - none of these things were for Big John.

    The Haunting of Corpsewood Manor (Case of Dr. Charles Scudder)

    The Haunting of Corpsewood Manor (Case of Dr. Charles Scudder)

    Charles took a step back from his self-portrait. He was just adding his finishing touches of paint.
    “Are you sure this is what you saw? This is how I’m going to die?”
    “Yes” the voice said.
    The painting showed Charles with a gag in his mouth and 5 bullet wounds on his forehead. It was a gruesome piece of art but everyone that knew Charles said he was just “eccentric.”
    They had no idea that’s almost exactly how Charles would later be found at the crime scene.
    With the painting hanging above him…

    #105: The Ripper of China (Serial Killer Gao Chengyong)

    #105: The Ripper of China (Serial Killer Gao Chengyong)

    They sat around the dinner table - whispering. As if the man the town called “The Ripper” could hear them. 



    “Don’t wear red shoes - he will kill all girls wearing red shoes.”



    “I thought it was red clothes?”



    “I heard it was girls with long hair - because it’s easier to grab when they try to run away.”



    Whatever it is - we have to try it all. Cut your hair. Throw out your red clothes because if The Ripper gets a hold of you… 



    He will leave you without your hands, ears, breasts, and sometimes even the skin on your back.

    #104: The Strangler Tree Deaths (Case of Bhatia Family Deaths)

    #104: The Strangler Tree Deaths (Case of Bhatia Family Deaths)

    The banyan tree is a terrifyingly beautiful sight. 





    It looks like it's draped in a shredded cloak… with its long roots suspended from the branches - hanging eerily straight towards the ground. 





    That’s the first thing the officer thought of when he walked into the family home. 11 people dead. 10 hanging. 





    Together, perfectly spaced out, 10 family members were suspended from the ceiling like the roots of a banyan tree. Suspended. 3 generations of a family had been wiped out. But why?

    #103: The Nurse Killer From Hell (Case of Richard Speck)

    #103: The Nurse Killer From Hell (Case of Richard Speck)

    The 7 nursing students were huddled in their dorm room bunk beds - panicking about what to do next. They had been tied up by an intruder.





    They waited till he came back into the room and he pointed at a nurse “you.” He escorted her out and tortured her for 30 minutes. She would never return. 





    One by one - like a ritual the killer escorted out nurses to their death. 





    The hostage room went from 7 to 6 then 5…4…3…2…





    Then there was one. 





    How will she escape?

    #102: The Werewolf of Russia (Serial Killer Mikhail Popkov)

    The 17 year old girl woke up in a panic. Where was she? It was so bright and cold - a hospital? 





    She turned her head to the left - a pale dead body. She tried to scream but her voice wouldn’t work. She looked to her right - a dead body. She wanted to jump up and run out of there but half of her body was now paralyzed. 





    She had woken up in a morgue with half her hair torn out, she couldn’t move, and she didn’t even remember her name. 





    All she knew was earlier she was in a forest staring at the werewolf.

The B E S T

This is my all time favorite podcast and I cannot get enough!!! The story telling is absolutely impeccable and the way Stephanie really makes you feel all of the emotions and keeps you on the edge of your seat she draws you in completely!! The commentary she and her fiancé give is not only entertaining but helps you to get a broader range of their perspectives and occasionally gives you some lighthearted banter to ease the suspense and intensity of the dark story before drawing you in even further! Hands down the BEST podcast I’ve ever listened too, you never get bored you never feel lost or confused! This is the only podcast I not only re listen too but I also never skip through AT ALL. Absolutely love it.
