    S2:E3 - Maury Travis / Kriss Donald

    S2:E3 - Maury Travis / Kriss Donald

    S2:Episode 3 - Carla puts the gruesome activity of Maury Travis under the microscope- a man who inflicted torture on his targets and a blunt danger to women across St. Louis, Missouri. Remorseless in his motives, but choosing ultimately his own death over the accountability a jail sentence would bring… The only remaining mystery is the true scale of his victims, in numbers.


    Phil recounts the savage killing of Scottish teenager Kriss Donald. A ratcheting of racial and gang tension in his corner of Glasgow came to its violent end, with Donald attacked and abducted by a group of five men of Pakistani descent. Attempts to flee prosecution abroad by 3 of the suspects only sought to bring forth their unprecedented extraditions back to the UK, and further widen the discussion of how racially-motivated murder can be presented to the public in different ways.

    S2:E2 - Christopher Newsom & Channon Christian / Lin & Megan Russell

    S2:E2 - Christopher Newsom & Channon Christian / Lin & Megan Russell

    S2:Episode 2 - Phil unfolds the devastating crime against young Tennessee darlings Christopher Newsom & Channon Christian. Both became victims of a ruthless carjacking, which was merely the beginning of their fatal ordeal at the hands of a cruel collective. The tragedy of this case was further mired by allegations of racial bias and a near-leniet focus on the culprits by local media.


    Carla looks deep into the troubled life of Michael Stone, convicted for the dual murder of mother/daughter Lin & Megan Russell. A cursory glance at his litany of crimes and jail sentences points towards a rampant career criminal, bourne of a childhood of violence and abuse... Yet he's always vehemently protested his mistaken identity to the Russell killings- Could these pleas of innocence hold any grain of truth?

    S2:E1 -Amanda Taylor / Javed Iqbal

    S2:E1 -Amanda Taylor / Javed Iqbal

    In S2:Episode1 - Carla looks into the harrowing account of Virginia native Amanda Taylor- dubbed The Selfie Killer. As she struggled to process the suicide of her husband Rex, her grief quickly became poisoned and twisted into bitter vengeance... With her father-in-law firmly in her sights as the one responsible for the death of her partner- and the one who should suffer. All the more perverse is the open satisfaction she took in her eventual crimes, broadcasting her proud acts across social media, and speaking remorselessly about her motivations in interviews that followed.


    Phil continues his keeness to bring you some of the biggest homicide cases in a particular country's history- this time looking towards Pakistan and the heinous actions of child killer/molester Javed Iqbal. The blend of his mother's death and a grievance with Lahore Police were very much the twisted driving force behind his countless murders, in little over the space of a year. His choice of victim was troubling too, seemingly focusing on vulnerable runaway boys from 6 to 16, and subjecting them to further unimaginable horrors.

    Episode 25 :Thomas Nick / Babes In The Woods

    Episode 25 :Thomas Nick / Babes In The Woods

    In Episode XXIIV- Switzerland has a crime rate so low that few would ever regard it as a natural source for the T&T podcast- but then along comes a case of multiple homicides try and prove otherwise.


    Phil looks into this grim account of the barbaric Thomas Nick, as he spied and tracked the movements of a hapless family, before striking to commit acts of kidnap, child abuse and arson. Worryingly, there were clear signs that this was merely a template for far worse things to come, from a man dubbed 'The Beast of Rupperswil'...


    Carla delves back into a case which shares it name with a children's tale, only brought to life in a far darker reality. Brighton girls Nicola Fellows & Karen Hadaway sadly became known as the fabled 'Babes In The Wood', as they fell prey to the hands of killer Russell Bishop. His relentless falsehoods twisted the legal system just enough to evade conviction in 1987... Only to find he couldn't escape ever advancing, compelling forensic evidence upon retrail. Justice delivered 20 years in the making.

    Episode 24 : David Fuller / Susan Smith

    Episode 24 : David Fuller / Susan Smith

    In Episode XXIV- Many cases on, Carla takes T&T tentatively back to the subject of a specific type of taboo- looking into the perversions of killer David Fuller. Far from content taking the lives of Wendy Knell & Caroline Pierce in 1987... Fuller was another in a line of deviants to take advantage of a trusted role, accessing two Kent hospital morgues to molest a staggering number of corpses, and record his gratifications along the way. Could this be the most prolific necrophiliac in UK history?


     


    The details are no less harrowing in Phil's case, as he recounts the wicked acts of Susan Smith. A South Carolinan mother, who betrayed every maternal instinct she had to commit the unimaginable crime of killing her 2 sons. This was merely only the beginning of her web of deceipt, courting the sympathy of the media and public by manipulating a false story of her being the tragic victim of a car heist... In a futile attempt to cover her callous, guiltless actions.

    Episode 23 : Jeremy Steinke & Jasmine Richardson / The liske Family murders

    Episode 23 : Jeremy Steinke & Jasmine Richardson / The liske Family murders

    In Episode XXIII- Phil drills down into the sordid details of the Richardson family murders in Saskatchewan, Canada- What possible motive could 12 year old Jasmine have had to slaughter her loved ones? Much can be pointed to the manipulation by boyfriend Jeremy Steinke, the literal double of her age... but it seems that graphic movie violence soon evolved into a shared fantasy. This is teen frustration taken a sinister twist. ...And we know how disappointed you'd be if we didn't get into seasonal spirit


    So in this edition Carla brings you a case truly inkeeping with the darker side of Halloween. Devon Griffin came back to his Ohio home to find what he thought was a prank, only to realise he was in the presence of a very real murder scene, involving his entire family. A story woven into every horror October 31st conjures up in the mind.
