    98. The Controversial Murder Conviction of Darlie Routier

    98. The Controversial Murder Conviction of Darlie Routier

    Maria and Laura are finally back together from break, and we are so excited to tell you about the changes to the podcast. Not too much is changing, but tune into this episode to hear what's coming up! In this Spooky episode, Maria covers the murders of brothers Devon and Damon Routier in Rowlett, Texas in 1996 ... as well as the investigation and arrest of their own mother Darlie Routier as the lead suspect. But nothing is quite as it seems, and there is more than meets the eye in this homocide investigation. This is one of those cases where you're not sure who's right, who's telling the truth, and we're not totally certain the right person ended up in prison on death row. Is Darlie Routier actually innocent, or was she wrongfully convicted and the real killer is still out there? Listen and let us know what you think!

Scary murders, story’s from random people, and witchcraft. I don’t know how I stop listening I would like to ask one question though how did you find what witch you were like how did you find out that your a green witch. I need a little help with that I think I’m a green witch but I don’t know ☺️🙃

Please help🙂

I just started your podcast today it is Thursday, April 28,2022 I have some experiences with spirits and it specifically at my mom and dad‘s house salad with my aunt and they live in a trailer and my mom and dad had my mama and my papa passed away not too long ago maybe a year but every time I go over there I’ll feel somebody holding my shoulder or hovering over me or whispering in my ear and it’s just kind of creepy but I know they’re there talking to me and I don’t know what to do about it and I was hoping maybe you can mention that in one of your Podcasts maybe.🙃🙂

Still feeling it out

I started from the first episodes. I really like the topics. It’s so hard to listen to in the beginning because there is so much extra content that is off topic. I had to skip half an episode to get to the main topics. I am looking forward to newer episodes and hope the editing is better.
Thank you for making this. I will keep trying to get to the newer content.
