On this week’s episode I tell Russ the most AMAZING survival story I have ever heard! This story is unfortunately not as well known as others but it deserves to be! You will be shocked by Alison Botha’s story of will and perseverance. I’m in awe of her and you will be too! Moral of this story... when you have a choice, choose life!
Check out this week’s episode where I tell Russ all about this Canadian serial killing couple... The infamous Paul Bernardo and the most hated woman in Canada, Karla Homolka. These two are the poster children for a toxic relationship and proof that evil energy can grow and manifest itself into something truly sadistic. Moral of this story.... yo, don’t be a sucka for love. (Said in Russ’s Bronx accent)
On this week's episode I tell Russ all about Jeffrey Dahmer. He was a necrophiliac, sadist and cannibal in the 1970's and 80's. He killed 17 men over a 13 year period and sexually assaulted 4 people that we know of. Today we are going to discuss his life and crimes and try to unpack the convoluted psyche of one of the most notorious serial killers in American history. Moral of the story...don't go to a stranger's house ok!?!... Just don't.
This week Russ and I had the pleasure of speaking to Laura Brand @nancydrew187 !!! I was so excited for this interview and I’m so excited to share it with all of you! I’ve mentioned Laura on the podcast before, she is a Private Investigator, Forensic Psychologist and Serial Killer expert! She is releasing a book and a docuseries about her work with Lawrence Bittaker and her ongoing investigation into the Tool Box Killer case. She will also be speaking at Crime Con this year! We had a lot of fun recording this conversation and I hope you guys learn a lot just like we did!
On this week's episode I tell Russ about the brutal murder of a young girl from Mississippi named Jessica Chambers. She was a beautiful aspiring nurse with her whole life ahead of her. There has yet to be a resolution in this case but what we know for sure is she knew her perpetrator, she even used her dying breath to say his name. Moral of this story... if you are going to get killed, 9 times out of 10 it will be a "friend" or "loved one" that commits the crime!
On this week’s episode, I tell Russ all about the murder of Laci Peterson. Russ doesn’t really care about true crime that much so he doesn’t know anything about this case. He doesn’t even remember the media frenzy it caused back in 2002. Him being so out of the loop is interesting to me. Russ can look at this case with totally fresh eyes without the media influencing him. A lot of people believe Scott Peterson is innocent of this crime and should be exonerated. We are gonna lay out ALL the facts I could find and tell you if we think this husband really did it! Moral of this story... when you are a lying, cheating husband the court of PUBLIC opinion will find you guilty of even the most heinous crime.
On this week’s episode, I tell Russ about the giant ass hat known as Mark Twitchell. He is a Canadian wanna be serial killer who was obsessed with the T.V. series Dexter. He tried to be exactly like Dexter Morgan but fortunately he failed miserably. Mark was a sci fi nerd and amateur film maker who was a true narcissist the core. He really believed he was a genius and God’s gift to women. Moral of the story... “Do, or Do Not. There is no try.” - Yoda
On this week's episode I tell Russ all about the abduction of Tara Calico. This case is a rollercoaster ride of unfortunate twists and turns, false hope and police cover ups. It is still not closed after 30 long years and multiple people coming forward with information. Tara's family kept her story in the media and were determined to find her but their efforts proved unsuccessful due to people of power getting in the way. Two women have now taken this case on and will stop at nothing to solve it. Moral of this story... "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men..." -Sir John Dalberg-Acton
This week I tell Russ all about Lawrence Bittaker and Roy Norris aka The Toolbox Killers. These two men are probably the most evil serial killers in modern American history. On December 13, 2019 which was Friday the 13th.... Lawrence Bittaker was found dead in his death row prison cell, he died at age 79 of natural causes. Bittaker met Norris while in prison in the mid 1970s. The two men realized they had the same evil energy and devised a plan to carry out their most disturbing fantasies. Moral of this story... this case is a terrifying display of how the darkest side of humanity, when given an audience or willing participant, can became a real life nightmare.
On this week's episode I tell Russ the story of 5 cold cases that all happened within 3 years and a few miles of one another. These murders rocked the communities of the Lewis Clark Valley. The people in this area don't believe these cases are cold at all they believe they know exactly who committed these crimes. Moral of this story... when you have this many links to that many deaths, it's no coincidence.
