    The Olympian Mommy Killer (Case of Keli Lane & Her Secret Kids)

    Bbzzz - when the buzzer goes off they know it’s game time. The high contact sport of water polo begins.
    For the next few hours - they attack, get dragged underwater, and they try to win at all costs.
    And then afterward the team will reward themselves with shots at the bars. Keli was nervous.
    She didn’t know how to sneak out of the party early without anyone knowing. But what choice did she have?
    She was going to give birth tonight. In secret. For the second time.

    The highway patrol officers turned on their sirens. 2nd drunk driver of the night. This guy was worse than the first.
    He had a friend in the passenger seat - drunk, passed out, and he didn’t even realize they had been pulled over.
    He sat there sleeping while the driver was being arrested.
    “Come on bud time to find a new ride” - the officer tapped the window.
    That’s when he realized - the passenger wasn’t drunk.
    He was dead.

    5 Teens Went Into The Woods - Only 1 Walked Out (Case of “Gitchie Girl”)

    5 Teens Went Into The Woods - Only 1 Walked Out (Case of “Gitchie Girl”)

    In the halls of their high school - nobody dared to walk near her.
    Most of the students pretended they didn’t see her, hear her, or know her.
    If you were new there you might ask - “What did she do?”
    “Oh, you don’t know? That’s Gitchie Girl. She went into the woods with 4 of her friends and she’s the only one that came out alive. And we all know that Gitchie Girl is hiding something.”

    Book Rec: “Gitchie Girl” - by Phil Hamman & Sandy Hamman (There are 2 books written by the authors and both are incredible, heartbreaking reads)

    The Monster of Italy And His Sick “Trophies” (Serial Killer)

    The Monster of Italy And His Sick “Trophies” (Serial Killer)

    In Florence, Italy - it’s said that 1/3 of people are conceived in cars.
    Young couples would drive up the isolated hills to have some fun - and creepers would flock to watch them. They would watch, record, “enjoy” themselves, and then go home.
    Except for one creeper - he wanted more.
    He would ambush the couple right after they were done - and drag the woman out of the car to take something for himself.
    His little trophies…

    Book Rec: “The Monster of Florence” - by Douglas Preston & Mario Spezi (Might by me favorite read of the whole year - you need to pick it up)

    Eaten by Alligators or Murdered at Lake Seminole (Case of Mike Williams)

    Eaten by Alligators or Murdered at Lake Seminole (Case of Mike Williams)

    Alligators are one of the world’s oldest predators. Their bite is 3x stronger than that of a lion. So it was a no-brainer to police when they were told Mike Williams went missing at Lake Seminole.
    “He was eaten alive - maybe they took his body to their dens for later food.” - they thought.
    But when pieces of clothes that presumably belonged to Mike surfaced - people were confused. There were in pristine condition. Practically new.
    The dark waters and mystery at Lake Seminole will haunt 4 families for over 20 years. But the truth will eventually come to shore.

    Book Rec: “Evil At Lake Seminole” - by Steven Epstein (such a good deep dive and amazingly written)

    The Crime Show Copycat Killer (Case of Jason Bautista)

    Jason was a straight A college student, with 2 jobs, and his favorite show was “The Sopranos.” He was a nice kid with a bright future ahead of him.
    One day police found Jason’s mom had gone missing. Jason was worried.
    He had thrown her headless body off a cliff - just like what he learned from his favorite show. But he had been so busy - that he hadn’t gotten around to burning her head and her hands. They were still sitting in the closet waiting for him.

    Book Rec: “Such Good Boys” by Tina Dirmann (best deep dive on this case and an amazing read)

avaaa<33 ,

the best true crime podcast

no one can tell a true crime case like stephanie does <3

Sokka of the Water Tribe ,

Amazing!

Truly the best podcast I’ve ever listened to. Nothing can top Stephanie’s storytelling. The way she immerses you into the story a skill that many people lack and the way she tells these stories just seem so personal.

Shimmyless ,

YOH WOW

Two words: Healthiest obsession and greatest decision i have ever made. I am well aware of the fact that that was not two words but i had to bring my point across. It sounds cooler that way :)
