#61 The St Aubin Axe Murders

Benny Evangelist immigrated to the United States in 1904 from Naples.  The devout Catholic started going into trances where he claimed to have visions from God.

Soon, Benny was starting his own religion and writing his own Bible.

 
Benny then began to sell love potions, hexes, and amulets and would charge upwards of $10 a day for his services.  Within no time, Benny was seeing around 75 people a day.

On July 3, 1929 Benny's real estate agent came by to finish some paperwork on a farm Benny was purchasing.  What the man found would shock the community and become one of Detroit's most gruesome murders.

#60 Left For Dead

A daughter’s worst nightmare was about to become reality. After several unanswered phone calls to her mother, Katrina knew something was not right . As she pulled up to her parent's home, she noticed all the cars were still parked where they always were.  Katrina made her way around the back of the house and that is when her stomach dropped. The back door was clearly broken and was hanging slightly open. The gruesome sight inside would horrify a community but the killers were not finished yet. What they would do next, would be beyond comprehension.  Join Jen and Cam as we discuss Left for Dead on this episode of Our True Crime Podcast.

#58 Dead on the Water




Craig Alaska is a beautiful fishing town on the coast of Alaska located about 1000 miles south of Anchorage. The final fishing weekend has come to a close. The docks are full of the people turning in their last big catch so on September 5, 1982 when a fancy fishing boat named The Investor comes to the docks, it catches a lot of attention. It was not your ordinary working boat. It was a 58 foot fishing vessel with all the bells and whistles that would have cost over $800,000. It stood out among all the others.



 The following morning, people noticed the boat was not docked but floating aimlessly out at sea. What would happen next would shock onlookers and create more questions than answers … some of those questions remain unanswered to this day. Join Jen and Cam as we discuss Dead on the Water on this episode of Our True Crime Podcast.


Our True Crime Podcast is researched and written by hosts Cam and Jen. The show is produced and edited by Nico @wetalkofdreams.

#57 Alone in the Dark: The Savage Murder of Peggy Reber

1968 is considered to be the most turbulent year in US history. The assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr and Robert Kennedy. The Tet Offensive of the Vietnam war that killed hundreds US soldiers and wounded thousands more.  Riots and protests were happening not only in the US but all over the world.  And let's not forget the Zodial Killer took his first victims in December of that year.

But there's one violent death you won't find on Wikipedia-at least not to date.  The brutal murder of 14 year old Peggy Reber.
Her murderer is still out there.

Join Cam and Jen as we discuss the case of a young girl who was left alone for the weekend and savagely attacked in her own bedroom.

#56 Carnage in the Canary Islands

 
The Alexanders were not your normal family.  In 1940s, Harald Alexander dove deep into the German religious sect of the Lorber Society. 

This sect deemed everyone outside the religion was "dirty" so the family slipped away from society, keeping only to themselves.



When his son Frank was born in 1954, Harald claimed he was the Messiah or Prophet of God.  Everyone in the family gave into each and every one of Frank's desires.

Rumors started circulating in Hamberg about the Alexanders and the police started coming to their house.  This prompted Harald to pack up the family and move to 37 Jesús Nazareno in the town of Santa Cruz on Tenerife.

Soon the Alexanders would be apart of a blood bath that would be known as the most horrific crime to occur on Tenerife.

#55 Bad Blood



Science has come a long way and has allowed humans to discover new diseases as well as cures for these diseases. Often it has often been, shall we say,  not so forthcoming with what or how it practiced but even worse, it lied. It lied to those who had already suffered so much in American History. This is the story of how ignorance and blatant racism affected an unknown amount of people all without them even realizing they were being used a medical guinea pigs who would pay with their life.
