EP52: Chris Hansen: Interview with a Child Predator Catcher

2/28/2024
This week, we had the privilege of taking a seat with Chris Hansen, renowned television personality, investigative journalist, and esteemed advocate against child sexual abuse. Delving into his extensive career dedicated to the pursuit of justice, we explored the intricacies of apprehending child predators in the act, particularly amidst televised sting operations. Ever wondered how a grown man actually winds up getting busted casually walking into a (presumed) child's home prepared to perpetrate? Or what exactly unfolds both before and after the cameras start rolling? Our curiosity led us to seek answers firsthand, straight from an unparalleled source.

EP53: Lucha Libre Lady Killer

2/21/2024
Unveiling the story of Mexico's first documented serial killer, Juana Barazza, presents a narrative steeped in stark contrasts and harrowing realities. At the age of 48, this single mother's life was shadowed by a disturbing past filled with horrific childhood abuse and sexual exploitation. Juana's journey as an adult was a vivid study in contradictions: In the public eye, she was celebrated as "La Dama del Silencio" ("The Lady of Silence"), a formidable figure in the vibrant world of Lucha Libre wrestling. However, beneath the facade of her elaborate mask, a sinister truth lurked. Juana was a heartless assassin, implicated in the tragic deaths of nearly 50 elderly women. Despite her notable achievements in the wrestling arena, Juana Barazza's legacy is irreversibly tainted, overshadowed by the grim moniker "La Mataviejitas" (The Little Old Lady Killer).

EP52: Olympic Gold Murderer: The Case of Oscar Pistorius

2/14/2024
On Valentine's Day 2013, a truly devastating tragedy unfolded: Reeva Steenkamp, a 29-year-old South African former model, TV personality, and law graduate, adored for her vibrant spirit, was brutally gunned down in her boyfriend's bathroom. The scene that law enforcement encountered was one of stark and shocking contrast: beside Reeva's bloodied and broken form stood none other than global icon Oscar Pistorius, the internationally acclaimed Olympic and Paralympic sprinter. At 27-years-old, Pistorius, an athlete with both legs amputated below the knee, earned global acclaim as "The Blade Runner." His extraordinary athleticism and determination defied the odds and inspired millions worldwide. Yet, in this harrowing moment, Pistorius transformed in the public eye from a celebrated figure to a cold-blooded killer, ominously dubbed "The Blade Gunner." The case sent shockwaves around the world as people grappled with the horrifying descent of a beloved hero into an infamous murderer.

EP51: Guilty Until Proven Innocent

2/7/2024
Wrongful accusation and conviction is a living nightmare, a devastating storm of confusion, fear, and disbelief that tears at one's soul and destroys the human spirit. False accusations cut deep, transforming the world into an alien landscape where truth fades and your voice, crying out in innocence, is drowned out by the roar of judgment in a deeply flawed legal system. In the U.S., thousands suffer from wrongful convictions in a system where innocence, though fundamental, is often overshadowed. In this episode, we explore the tragic case of Jennifer Thompson-Cannino, a young woman who suffered a horrific rape, and the ensuing devastation when Ronald Cotton, an innocent man, was wrongfully convicted for this heinous crime. TRIGGER WARNING: Please note that we discuss the difficult topic of sexual assault and rape, and urge you to listen with caution.

EP50: Turn On the News, B*tch

1/31/2024
"The Joker," a pinnacle of cinematic villainy, has been an emblem of unadulterated chaos for nearly a century. This character is the very personification of turmoil and lawlessness, marked by a deranged psyche and a telltale, sinister smile. In a chilling parallel to this fictional entity, Jamie Osuna, a real-life criminal bearing a permanent smile tattooed on his face, manifested a similarly distorted moral compass and taste for destruction. Osuna reveled in orchestrating death and devastation and destroying the lives of those around him. While not explicitly emulating The Joker, Osuna's sadistic actions exhibited a similar level of unpredictability and malevolence. He was responsible for heinous acts of violence, including torture, homicide, dismemberment, and decapitation, and left a trail of horror reminiscent of the menacing essence of The Joker.

EP49: Pink Panty Predator

1/24/2024
In the early 1990s, the quiet town of Beelitz, Germany was haunted by a grotesque and horrifying figure known as “The Beast of Beelitz.” This serial killer preyed upon innocent and unsuspecting victims, and subjected them to unspeakable acts of violence before taking their lives. His depravity knew no bounds as he sought to fulfill his twisted desires, which did not end with his victims’ tragic deaths, but continued postmortem as he desecrated their bodies in unimaginably vile ways. Furthermore, “The Beast of Beelitz” added a deeply disturbing layer to his heinous acts by wearing women's underwear during these appalling crimes, and then intentionally evacuating his bowels to satisfy a perverse sexual fetish. Needless to say, “The Beat of Beelitz” went on to become one of the most gruesome serial killers in German criminal history.

In the heart of New Orleans' vibrant French Quarter, the catastrophic case of Addie Hall and Zach Bowen unfolded as a tragic narrative of love descending into darkness. Zack, a former soldier and war veteran, struggled with PTSD and addiction, a turbulent backdrop to his volatile relationship with Addie. Their story, which began as a whirlwind romance amidst the chaotic aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, spiraled into a horrific conclusion. In October 2006, the already devastated city of New Orleans was hit by the discovery of Addie's heartbreaking and incredibly savage murder, which revealed a brutal act of violence, dismemberment, and potentially cannibalism.

EP47: Incest House of Horrors

1/10/2024
As we delve into the sensitive and taboo subject of incest, particularly focusing on a devastating father/daughter scenario in Poland, we face a complex and challenging aspect of victimology: when victims of abuse or trauma become perpetrators themselves. This scenario calls into question the cyclical nature of violence, the psychological impact of trauma, and how it can warp an individual's moral compass. In the unsettling case before us, marked by incest, abuse, and multiple homicides, the line between victim and perpetrator blurs, complicating our notions of empathy, accountability, and culpability. This case is a truly disturbing narrative that defies simple categorization and evokes a complex blend of horror, disgust, empathy, and confusion, while prompting a deep and emotional examination of the human psyche.

EP46: Dollhouse of Death

1/3/2024
Dolls, those eerie, lifeless figures designed to mimic human form, occupy a strange and unsettling place in our psyche, often stirring a blend of intrigue and fear. As rational adults, we typically view dolls as mere objects made of plastic, porcelain, or other synthetic materials. But...what if a doll was not made out of artificial elements? What if the doll was, in actuality, human? This horrifying case delves into the nightmarish world of a twisted 55-year-old Russian man named Anatoly Moskvin, who harbored a disturbing penchant for digging up and “immortalizing” dead children by turning them into dolls.

EP45: Nightmare On Christmas

12/20/2023
On what was meant to be a festive and joyous holiday on Christmas Day in 2010, Pierre and Jacqueline Bamu, a Congolese couple living in Paris, faced an unimaginable tragedy. Rather than unwrapping presents and opening boxes, they were confronted with the heartbreaking task of opening their 15-year-old son's coffin. This heart-wrenching tragedy unfolded when their precious son, Kristy, was discovered lifeless in the bathroom of his sister's apartment in London. Kristy's body bore the gruesome marks of extreme violence and cruelty, a grim testament to the horrors he endured over the course of three brutal days in his sister's apartment, which somehow turned into a nightmarish torture chamber. Unbelievably, Kristy's tragic fate did not result from the actions of an unidentified assailant or a random serial killer on the loose. Instead, he met an unimaginably cruel and shocking end at the hands of his own family, after they accused him of being a witch. This devastating case stands as one of the most appalling instances of child abuse ever documented in British history; we urge you to listen with caution.

EP44: Beaten and Battered Boyfriend

12/13/2023
The case of Alex Skeel highlights a gut-wrenching story of domestic abuse that unfolded in the UK. Alex, a young man in his teens/early twenties, suffered years of horrific physical, emotional, verbal, and psychological abuse at the hands of his depraved girlfriend, Jordan Worth. Alex sustained absolutely brutal physical injuries, psychological torment, and devastating isolation as Jordan wielded absolute control over every facet of his entire existence…until he almost ceased to exist entirely. Just ten days aways from death, Alex's profoundly disturbing case serves as a stark reminder of the often-overlooked plight of male victims within the realm of domestic violence. It compels us to confront the pressing need for greater awareness and understanding surrounding this issue, and underscores the vital importance of acknowledging and addressing all manifestations of abuse that can fester within intimate relationships.

EP42: Sex Parts: Severed and Stored

11/29/2023
In August of 1982, within the confines of a Hong Kong photo development shop, a gruesome sequence of images emerged from a roll of film. It began with a lifeless, naked woman sprawled on a plastic sheet atop a carpeted floor. However, as the film continued to develop, a macabre series of obscene pictures surfaced, featuring close-ups of the victim's intimate areas, cuts on her flesh, and what appeared to be a horrifying human dissection. The most haunting image, however, was the last one—a vivid portrayal of a severed, mutilated breast sitting beside a blood-soaked chainsaw. This is the chilling tale of Lam Kor-Wan, Hong Kong's first known serial killer, also known as "The Rainy Night Butcher," who meticulously destroyed, dissected, dismembered and preserved his victims' sexual organs in plastic containers beneath his bed. His horrific actions cemented Lam Kor-Wan as one of the most depraved individuals to have ever walked among us.

Now, place a 10-year-old girl grappling with a severe illness at the center of this chilling narrative. In this episode, we delve into the profoundly devastating case of Maya Kowalski, who was effectively medically kidnapped and confined within a Florida hospital, and barred from seeing her parents for months.

11/15/2023
In this week's episode we are joined by special guest, true crime podcaster, writer, producer and on-camera talent, Alexis Linkletter. In life's grand theater, none of us anticipates being thrust into the spotlight of a terrifying, real-life crime story. The thin line between safety and peril can vanish in a heartbeat, leaving any one of us susceptible to the unpredictable twists of fate and the insatiable appetite of a lurking predator. Tragically, the heartbreaking case of Becky Koster exemplifies this very concept. At the young age of 24, beautiful Becky encountered a depraved stranger while she was out at a bar with her friends one night on Long Island. Suddenly, Becky found herself at the center of the heartbreaking and absolutely brutal tale of her own murder. By examining forensic findings and the investigative efforts of multi-state law enforcement agencies, we delve deeply into this chilling case with the hope of illuminating Becky's life and, in turn, the lives of all victims of violence.

The episode presents a gripping tale of justice and perseverance, where an innocent man found himself entangled in a web of false accusations, gang-related drama, and police misconduct. Accused of murdering 16-year-old Martha Puebla, Juan Catalan's life took a terrifying turn in an unexpected direction that nearly led him to face a capital punishment trial. But the most astonishing turn in this narrative occurred when Juan's alibi for the night of the murder unexpectedly materialized in the form of Larry David, the acclaimed comedian and creator of "Seinfeld" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm." This case serves as a testament to the potency of truth and the far-reaching impact of the butterfly effect, demonstrating how a seemingly unrelated incident can have profound - and potentially devastating - consequences.

EP37: Unholy Halloween Homicide

10/25/2023
The case of Sister Tadea Benz and Johnny Frank Garrett is a haunting chapter in legal history that unfolded on a chilling Halloween night in 1981 in Amarillo, Texas. Unfurling like a gripping saga of vengeance and justice, this heart-wrenching incident revolved around the savage slaying of Sister Tadea Benz, a cherished 76-year-old nun, and the alleged involvement of a 17-year-old perpetrator named Johnny Frank Garrett. Oscillating between dubious claims and the absence of concrete evidence, this case raised significant doubts concerning allegations of police and attorney misconduct, while also shedding light on the formidable influence of social hysteria, most notably, the Satanic Panic. Johnny Frank Garrett's swift conviction and subsequent death penalty sentence added an extremely dark layer to this complex and tragic story, and continues to raise haunting questions about guilt, innocence, and the blurred lines between justice and vengeance which still resonates today, decades after the final gavel fell.

EP36: California Cannibal

10/18/2023
In November 1991, the world was thrust into shock and disbelief as the gruesome details of a heinous crime unfolded before them. At the center of this horrifying tale stood Omaima Nelson, a former Egyptian-born model, whose appalling choices ultimately drew comparisons to notorious figures like Jeffrey Dahmer. On the heels of suffering unimaginable abuse and violence as a child, Omaima’s adult life was marked by a spectacle of dismemberment, cannibalism, and grotesque behavior that left both investigators and the public in a state of absolute disbelief. Intriguing, horrifying, and deeply unsettling, this disturbing case is considered one of the most gruesome crimes ever committed in Orange County, California.
