    Episode 153: Long Island Serial Killer - The Suspects

    Episode 153: Long Island Serial Killer - The Suspects

    Merry Christmas...Buon Natale...щасливого Різдва...Feliz Navidad...Frohe Weihnachten...Wesołych świąt...Felicem Natalem Christi

    Topic starts at: [12:00]

    Introducing one of the most infamous serial murder cases in American History. The Long Island Serial Killer may be responsible for murdering at least 18 young women across the US. Victims were found on the south shore of Long Island, in Manorville, NY, Las Vegas, NV, and Atlantic City, NJ, and they all share eerie similarities. The victims were sex workers who advertised their services online, namely on Craig’s List. Most were petite, between 22 to 27-years-old, with hazel or green eyes. Many were found lying face down near a body of water and wrapped in burlap or cloth with their heads facing east. Some were found bound by belts or tape, and when a cause of death could be determined, most were killed by strangulation, while others were horribly dismembered and their body parts scattered. Since the mid-1990s, the Long Island Serial Killer operated undetected, and it wasn’t until 2010, in an accidental twist of fate, that this horrible story was finally exposed. Get ready for one of the most heinous, conspiracy-laden, twisty-turney stories you’ll ever hear.

    - Issei Sagawa, also known as the Kobe Cannibal, murdered and cannibalized a classmate in Paris, France in 1981. Not only was Issei Sagawa's crime brutal beyond comprehension, but the fact that he got off with little more than a slap on the wrist, and then became a minor celebrity because of his crimes, makes this story truly unbelievable. Unfortunately, though, this IS a true story. Listener beware. This is a nasty episode.

    - Let this episode act as a warning. Before you sit down with a Ouija Board, and before you place your fingertips on the planchette and whisper the dangerously vague incantation, “Ouija board, Ouija board, please send me a spirit…”, seriously consider what might answer. Since 2009, an entity named ZOZO has terrorized hapless Ouija board users. On the surface, ZOZO is a fairly recent internet phenomenon, kind of like Slenderman. Historically, though, and unlike Slenderman, ZOZO can be traced back for centuries, which lends a lot more weight to this frightening entity.

They’re Back!

Picking up where they left off! The show may have taken a break, but Jason and Oscar are back! Their most recent show, Junko Furuta, is downright disturbing.

The best Chicagoland paranormal podcast

This podcast is intuitive, intelligent let alone full of charisma and balance! excellent show to listen to and so very detailed! The show’s chemistry is amazing! I love it, we all love it keep up the good work!

Pyathena ,

Some constructive feedback

Interesting content. It's clear a lot of research goes into these episodes, which I appreciate. I would change two things. First, there is way too much banter. I'm listening to your episodes on the Mayan calendar, and there's over 20 minutes of chit-chat before we get to the subject of the episode. Also, Oscar should try to speak more clearly. It is sometimes hard to understand him, which is a shame because his contributions are valuable. I'm a fast talker, too, so I know how it is to speed through a thought that you're excited about. Listen to some of your episodes and you'll hear what I mean. Anyhow, good show! Keep up the good work.
