    Escape from a House of Horrors: The Turpin Family

    Escape from a House of Horrors: The Turpin Family

    On January 14, 2018, 17-year-old Jordan Turpin did the unthinkable: She broke out of the home where she and her 12 siblings were being heled prisoner by their parents, and, using a stolen cell phone, she called 911. 90 minutes later, police entered the home and discovered a horror that's almost impossible to imagine: Children chained to beds, living in filth, emaciated from years of malnutrition. The decades-long nightmare was over, but how on Earth had these parents been able to conceal their abuses for so long?

    The World's Most Evil Killers: Todd Christopher Kohlepp

    On November 3, 2016, authorities found 30 year old Kala Brown handcuffed to a pipe inside a storage container on property owned by popular local real estate agent Todd Kohlepp. Kohlepp had kept the missing woman as his prisoner for 65 days. A few hundred feet away, the authorities found the buried bodies of four other missing people--and they would soon discover that Kohlepp was also responsible for an unsolved quadruple homicide nearly two decades earlier. How had this monster stayed hidden in plain sight for so long? And how many other bodies would they find?

Love it!

I listen while I work and it makes the day go by so fast!

Love them but…

Great show, absolutely love their content..BUT it feels like over the years more and more is only on their patreon AND the remaining free content on the podcast is absolutely cluttered with a ton of ads. Hate to see it.

Need meth or vyvance to keep up with the manic talking

I was soooo interested in the topic. And really enjoy true crime. I wanted this podcast to be amazing. But it feels icky that the male host is so amped, jazzed, excited, over the top happy discussing the saddest crimes. The energy of the topic doesn’t match his exaggerated adhd coked up unrealistic spastic presentation. How do you laugh like a hyena every 19 words when talking about 10 children chained to the bed? Chill out, this isn’t a drag show.
