    Ever heard the phrase “If you give an inch, they’ll take a mile?”

    In 2017, a wealthy doctor in his 70s met a young, beautiful model on the verge of homelessness. Wanting to help her out, he began paying her rent. She quickly began asking for more and more…and more.

    Episode 210 - Selfie Slayer - The Case of Amanda Taylor

    Episode 210 - Selfie Slayer - The Case of Amanda Taylor

    Imagine stepping out to your mailbox one morning, only to discover an envelope addressed to you from a notorious serial killer who has been locked away since the 80s.

    Inside the envelope, you're relieved not to find any grisly mementos; but instead find a birthday card for your infant child along with a handwritten message complimenting you on your beautiful family.

    Some might argue that such a message would be just as horrifying as receiving a severed finger or lock of hair. Either way, for most people, receiving anything in the mail from a serial killer would be abnormal.

    Episode 209 - Honeymoon Hijacking - The Murder Of Anni Dewani

    Episode 209 - Honeymoon Hijacking - The Murder Of Anni Dewani

    A newlywed couple’s honeymoon is supposed to be the happiest time of their lives - their first chance to introduce themselves as spouses to the world. Embarking on a journey of love, adventure, and discovery together.

    Comedian Mike Binder described Honeymoons as “A short period of doting between dating and debting” It's one of those things that’s funny because for many of us…it’s true

    One way to avoid the “debt” part, of course, is to marry a millionaire. Which is exactly what Swedish citizen Anni Dewani had done, in the fall of 2010.
