    The Diabolical Dolly Öesterreich | True Crime Sleep Stories

    Dolly Öesterreich was a happily married woman on the outside... but the secrets she kept in her attic tell a very different tale. Her web of lustful lies would leave one man dead, and another locked in her attic for a decade.

    The Devilish Death of Jeannette DePalma | True Crime Sleep Stories

    The Devilish Death of Jeannette DePalma | True Crime Sleep Stories

    Jeannette DePalma was an American teenager who is believed to have been murdered on August 7, 1972 in New Jersey, United States.
    The case, currently unsolved, has become a matter of significant controversy due in part to coverage in Weird NJ magazine and in the 2015 book Death on the Devil's Teeth.

Big heart

Kelli has an enormous heart. She’s also got the best sense of humor and most positive attitude. I love her podcasts and I see her doing great things with them. 🥰

Love this podcast!

Kelly paints such a good picture with her description! I am a truck driver and I found her show a couple day’s ago and I can’t stop binging! She definitely has a lot to f passion for what she does! I enjoy your awesome work Kelly keep it up!

Aimee aka Freyacat ,

Such compassion

i love this podcast. I found true crime IRL and Parasise After Dark on Halloween and theyve quickly become my favorites . Kelli really cares about these cases and shes not all overproduced. She genuinely cares. I give five stars and i dont give 5 stars out easily.
