    Halloween Episode: Kimberly Hill & Debra Jackson

    Halloween Episode: Kimberly Hill & Debra Jackson

    HAIL SATAN Y’ALL, it’s our Halloween episode!
    We begin episode 49 with an update and recap regarding the case of Melissa Trotter. (Episode 46 might make a little more sense now)
    Hannah then covers the 2014 case of Kimberly Hill; a victim of parricide down in Corpus Christi. This case truly brings the traditional horror elements of Halloween to the party: hammers, sewage, necrophilia, suicide notes, and bestiality…. just to name a few. It begs the question, “How well do you really know your own family members?”
     Cassie wraps up the episode with an infamous cold case that just recently made headlines. For 40 years the victim was only known by an article of clothing, but decades of police work, and possibly even Henry Lee Lucas, kept her case in the spotlight. DNA ultimately answered the question of her identity, but will her rapist and murderer ever be known?
    HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

    Grace Ford & Melanie Goodwin

    Grace Ford & Melanie Goodwin

    Long time no see! 
    We have returned (probably not for long, sorry not sorry) with a brand new episode! 
    First, we begin with our “Summer of Growth” and give you a little recap of what we’ve been up to for the last 4 months.
    Cassie then tells us the about the murder of 2 year old Grace Ford in Plano. The morning that Mitch Ford breaks off his engagement to Melinda Muniz... let's just say she doesn't take it well. After a trip to the Dollar Store and 500 lies later, police are left wondering what really happened to baby Grace?
    Hannah wraps up the episode with the long awaited and not completely researched case of Melanie Goodwin. It's 2007 and everyone is watching LAGUNA BEACH or playing HALO3!! Young college student, Melanie, stops to grab some snacks for her boyfriend, but is found the next morning raped, murdered, and also charred from being lit on fire. Video footage comes to the rescue and helps bring her killer(s) to justice.
    Kane disconnected Cassie's microphone at the very end..... big surprise
    Happy Halloween!!

    Shanna and Diederik Vandewege & Annie Stone

    Shanna and Diederik Vandewege & Annie Stone

    We've got a (semi) light hearted and sober episode this week! We left in a few sidebars and tangents for some much needed humor after last week's insanity, so skip ahead if you'd like!
    We begin episode 47 with a follow up story regarding Cassie's new house. First it was blood stained carpet, now it's shower ghosts and a possessed Alexa?? Stay tuned for an update after they sage the place...
    Hannah then tells y'all the story of the murders of Shanna and Diederik Vandewege in Fort Worth. Craig Vandewege, the husband of Shanna and father of baby Diederik, is the most likely suspect...but he didn't get that memo. Was he mentally ill and killed his family during a psychotic episode, or has been planning it all along? No trial date has been set...and YES WE DID LOOK IT UP!
    Cassie finishes the episode with the one off of Annie Stone in Jefferson, a small town that Hannah literally drove through last week! Annie was a girl in her twenties partying like it was 1877, until one day she was shot and killed. The courts flip flop on the killer's guilt or innocence for several years, but family money may have had a huge part in the trial's outcome.
    We talk about some updates in the cases of Sandra Bland and ZuZu Verk as well!
    Thank you all for the lovely reviews on iTunes btw! Happy Halloween!!

    Melissa Trotter & Kelly Wilson

    Melissa Trotter & Kelly Wilson

    We have returned! We bring you episode 46 from Cassie’s new house yeaaaa!!
    Cassie starts us out with the listener suggested case of Melissa Trotter in Conroe. This case is insane! Circumstantial evidence, possible wrongful conviction… or maybe the guy really did kill her? Biggest question is, WHERE IS THE FREEZER?? Listen and you’ll understand.
    Hannah ends the episode with the disappearance of Kelly Wilson in Gilmer. This small town gets overwhelmed when the teenager goes missing, but tensions quickly rise when her case eventually becomes connected to a local “cult” of child rapists. CULTS, CORRUPTION, CONSPIRACY…OH MY!
    We hope y’all enjoy the speculation as much as we do! 
    Happy Halloween!

    Survivor Story: Al Benitez

    This week Hannah tells the story of a former border patrol officer who survives a hired hit on his life and several poisonings. These events give new meaning to the phrase "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned".
