    Their plan to murder Honorah Rieper was top priority as the date for Juliet's departure from New Zealand was nearing, neither one thought that it would take more than one blow but when the pathologist was done examining Nora it would take the girls 45 blows to take the life of Pauline's murder and less than 24 hours for it all to unravel...

    Best Selling Murderer: The Juliet Hulme and Pauline Parker Case Ep 1

    When you are in school you develop a few things; you most likely have a top 3 for your future career and friends- but for Juliet and Pauline their friendship would exceed your typical high school BFFs, no these two wanted to be inseparable and they didn't care who they had to take down in order to maintain that. Two teenagers from two different countries and socioeconomic backgrounds would collide during the most impressionable time in a child's life and together they would create a story that neither is capable of escaping...

    Behind Closed Doors: The Turpin Family Ep 4

    Behind Closed Doors: The Turpin Family Ep 4

    Louise's face on the footage from the body cam of the officers who made entrance into the Turpin home told the world all we needed to know... they were caught.
    17-year-old Jordan Turpin would make a decision, one that she had been planning for more than 2 years... Despite being able to verbally tell officers what was going on behind the closed doors of her family's home, she was able to show photos for proof, photos to say the words she didn't even know existed. Her story went from a tale-tell to one of the worse child abuse cases to be uncovered in America. This time all the children would escape their prison, unlike other children who are abused or neglected. 

    Join me tonight to close out this house of horrors series and the closeout of yet another season of TTCL...

    If you know of a child being abused or neglected or suspect that a child is being abused or neglected please contact your local law enforcement or call the National Hotline for Child Abuse 1-800-422-4453, give a voice to the children fading into the background...

    Join me as we continue on in the case that shocked the world when 7 adults and 6 kids were freed from their parents and the torture and neglect they had grown to know.

    Behind Closed Doors: The Turpin Family Ep 2

    Louise dreamed of having a large family and with the birth of 8 children she is well on her way but what she didn't account for is taking care of them and being an actual mother. Instead with each child David and Louise would design rule after rule to keep their life secret and their children out of the sight of everyone because what was happening behind the closed doors of the Turpin family home was pure torture that had no rhyme or reason...

Jgraeler ,

Music?

Not sure why there is so much music, I’m always looking for new podcasts and I’m not sure I can get past that. When I listen and wait then still fast forward music it’s too much.

Indianacisco ,

Great Show

Love the light humor! And the amount of detail!

Bestie51 ,

Stumbling

I just can’t listen to her breathless, stumbling speech. It’s so obvious she is reading and hasn’t rehearsed the script. It’s so very painful to listen to.
