    A Lesson in Disguise: Zack Bowen & Addie Hall

    A Lesson in Disguise: Zack Bowen & Addie Hall

    In the summer of 2005, Zack Bowen and Addie Hall had chosen to stay in the city to weather out Hurricane Katrina together and thrived in the post-storm city. As life began to come back to the city, their relationship turned tumultuous. On October 17th, 2006, Zack jumped from the seventh story of the Omni Royal hotel. Police found in his pocket a suicide note, explaining his decision was to make up for the life he had taken at their apartment on North Rampart Street. Join us this week as Briana tells the story of this horrible tragedy, the culmination of years of untreated mental illness.

    The 5'5" Monster of the South, Pee Wee Gaskins

    The 5'5" Monster of the South, Pee Wee Gaskins

    This week is another rough one as Brittany takes us through the life of the infamous Pee Wee Gaskins. Once known as the "Meanest Man in America," the 5'4" man was nothing but trouble for the state of South Carolina from a young age. With over fifteen confirmed victims and over a 100 he claimed to have killed, we learn that nothing was off limits for this man.

    August 18th, 2012, was just like any other day for Nancy Howard, spending most of her day at church. When she arrived home that evening, she was confronted by a man who demanded her purse and then shot her in the face. Miraculously, she survived and was able to see justice served in the failed attempt against her life. Special guest Amanda C. Miller, voice actor for beloved characters such as Boruto, Sailor Jupiter in Sailor Moon Crystal, and Jo in Kid Cosmic joins us as we discuss the wacky twists and turns of this attempted murder-for-hire plot.

    40 Days of Hell: The Torturous Murder of Junko Furuta

    40 Days of Hell: The Torturous Murder of Junko Furuta

    In November of 1988, 17-year-old Junko Furuta was riding home from work when she was knocked off her bike. A classmate from school offered to walk her back, but she would never make it there. Little did she know this classmate hadn't been there by coincidence and planned to teach her a lesson for rejecting his advances. Considered one of the most infamous cases of juvenile delinquency in post-war Japan, the abduction, torture, and murder of the young girl shook many to their core, especially because everyone involved was under the age of 18. Join us this week as Briana walks us through the gruesome case and the aftermath.

Once they started to put the pieces together, they uncovered the chilling details of an unthinkable crime. Join us today as Brittany takes us through the ins and outs of the case.
