#54 Jack the Stripper

 
 When someone says Whitechapel, London and 1880’s, most people know they are referring to none other than Jack the Ripper. Jack was one of the first serial killers to terrorize with no reason and to this day remains unsolved--although many think they know who it is, it has yet to be proven. His killings have been covered with countless books and movies and have lead to more than a few copycat killings but perhaps the biggest one is one you may have never heard about. This brutal murderer killed more victims than his famous namesake. He was known as Jack the Stripper and the murders would be known as the Hammersmith Nude Murders. 

Join Jen and Cam on this episode of Our True Crime Podcast as we discuss “Jack the Stripper.”

#53 The Wife In The Bedroom With The Picture Wire: Ruth Brown Snyder



Ruth Brown Snyder
Judd Gray
Albert Snyder





The Roaring 20's brought on a lot of changes in the United States.
 Most people saw a 22% growth in their paychecks.
 It was illegal to consume or make alcohol in the United States due to Prohibition.

 And with the passing of the 19th Amendment women were given the right to vote. 


This new era brought on a new type of woman called a  "flapper".
 She danced, drank, smoked and voted. 
She cut her hair, she tanned her skin, she wore make-up, and partied until dawn.
She was sexually liberated.  People started thinking that women 
were sexual beings with human impulses and desires, 
and restraining these impulses was self-destructive.

Ruth Brown Snyder let go of all her inhibitions but still managed to self destruct.


Join Jen and Cam as they discuss one of the most famous execution of a murderess
 you most likely have never heard of.

#52 No Witness No Crime

To look at Skidmore, Missouri, you would see what many Americans would see. Kids playing in the front yards, men in their older pickups waving at everyone they pass and folks chatting with with each other as they gather in town.
With a population of only 440 people in 1981, everyone in this Missouri town knew each other many had grown up together. They protected each other and, most importantly, they knew when to keep a secret. The town people knew who the good people were, they knew who was a bit of trouble and they also knew that the devil was alive and well and living right there with them in Skidmore, Missouri.

#51 Bad Man in Aviators

Newton Kansas sits in America’s heartland with fields of wheat and cornfields as far as the eye can see. The small town of 19,000 is big on family, God, and rarely, does anyone lock their front doors. They all know each other as many have grown up and grown old having never left their small hometown. It is a trusting community with a long line of families raising families but that trust was shattered in the spring of 1994 when a stranger knocked on Rhonda Krehbiel's front door.

#50 Harry Moore and the Groveland Four


Harry and Harriette Moore and daughters
Samuel Shephard, Walter Irvins, Earnest Thomas, Charles Greenlee

On December 25, 1951, was a double celebration for Harry & Harriette Moore of Mims, Florida. Not only was it Christmas, but the couple were celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary. In those 25 years, the Moore’s had raised 2 daughters, taught countless children in segregated schools within Brevard County Florida, and founded the Brevard County chapter of the NAACP, just to name a few accomplishments.  It had become a tradition for the couple to cut their anniversary cake just as they had on their wedding day, arm in arm, hand in had.  As they sliced their cake that evening, they had no idea they would become the first assassinations of the civil rights movement.

#49 The Chameleon Killer

Beverly McGowan
St. Lucie County Florida is a community located about 90 miles north of Miami and it is just what you would expect in sunny Florida-hot and humid. The area is a heavy on the wildlife with lots of swampy canals running throughout which empty into the famed Florida Everglades. For a killer, there is no better place to dump a body because if the weather doesn’t help decay the body fast, the critters will get it and within a short amount of time, there will be no evidence that a crime was ever committed. Or, at least, that is what a killer was hoping for but one July evening, fate was not on this killer’s side. A body was left behind and it would lead to years of trying to catch the infamous killer with lots of names.

#48 Missing Mistie Murray





On the morning of Wednesday May 31, 1995, Mistie Nicole Murray, age 16, told her parents she would be home late because she had band practice after school. She put on her green nylon Marching Band with the lettering SDHS Girls Band jacket, with "Mistie" on the sleeve and sat in her dad’s red TransAm with the top down, smiling and telling her dad how she will have her driver’s license soon.  Her father, Steve ruffled her hair, made a bad joke about women drivers as Mistie’s mother climbed in the car and they drove off to school. She attended all her classes and even visited the school nurse for reasons that haven’t been made available to the public.  Mistie called her mother, Anne, at the elementary school where her mom worked. The call was made around 3:00 pm but her mother did not answer the call and Mistie didn’t leave a message. This was not unusual as her mom was often busy especially at the end of the school day. What was unlike any other normal school day, Mistie never made it back home.

#47 Brotherly Hate: The Kehoe Boys



Located about 90 miles north of Little Rock Arkansas is a little area called the Illinois Bayou. It has everything that you would think a bayou would have: bogs, marshes and a very prehistoric kind of feel. Locals as well as visitors flock to the area to hit the water and see what kind of goodies they can reel in but sometimes the things that they catch on the other end of the line, is something no one would expect or want. That is exactly what happened, when a couple out for a day of fishing, reeled in a ghastly sight: a body part. Authorities rush to the scene and what they would uncover would only leave more questions and unveil a hidden sect of people who's strong beliefs include anti-government but does it also include murder?

Bermuda, Bikers and Blood Summer Blast #5

Bermuda, is England's oldest surviving colony. With the beautiful brightly colored houses darting the shores, the pink sandy beaches welcome vacationers from all over the world.  So when 16 year old Becky Middleton hears about how gorgeous this dream like paradise destination is, she knows where she is going on her summer vacation. Middleton, and her best friend Jasmine Meens, had decided they were going to spend the summer there after school was out in June 1996. They wouldn’t be alone on the island as Jasmine’s dad was now living there after getting remarried.

Evil on the Oceanfront Summer Blast #4







Best friends Lynn Seethaler and Janice Pietropola had graduated together from the Penn Hills High School and with their newly found independence and financial freedom, Janice and Lynn decided they would take a nice little vacation together.  





 The last week of June 1973, the two young, vibrant ladies set off on a road trip to Virginia Beach. The two had rented a small cottage at Farrar’s Tourist Village, which was a small complex of vacation rentals right on the oceanfront.




 A bit after noon on June 30, the two women missed their checkout time. A motel employee went to the cottage to check on them.  Inside they found a bloody scene and both girls were found dead. Decades would pass before the person responsible for this would be discovered but was there even more?

The Campfire Killings Summer Blast #3

It was Sept 13, 1982 when Detective Mike Eastham was summoned to a campsite in Wells Gray Park Provincial in Britt Columbia, Canada. Eastham was not quite sure what he was going to find but had been told there was a fire and they had discovered one body at that point. Once on sight, they located a car that was burned badly but there was no mistaking the bone fragments inside the car and those bones belonged to humans. Not  quite sure if there were one or two bodies inside the vehicle but they weren’t finished. Once the trunk was opened, the shock hit hard as two small skeletons were inside. Who would want this loving family dead? The answer would shock everyone.

Three months pass when a deer hunter came across skeletal remains. It was confirmed to be DeWayne Bush. DeWayne’s death would not be solved for 12 years but, sadly, he would not be the last to be brutally murdered by a man who was able to blend in among the community.

Stolen in the Night Summer Blast #1

Summer Blast #1: Stolen in the Night
Camping is a family tradition that goes way back. It is a cheap way to bond and see the country and that is just what the Jaeger family wanted to do when they set off to Montana from Michigan.

It was Sunday June 24 and they were spending their last night in Montana’s Headwaters State Park. It was around 4am when 13 year old Heidi Jaegar woke up to some chilly air. There was a hole in the tent-a big hole. Heidi felt around the sleeping bag for her 7 year old sister, Susie, who was sleeping in that spot but it was only a sleeping bag. The family's dream vacation would turn into a very long nightmare. Police would apply a method that was unheard of in the early 1970's to help in the case.

#41 Where Have You Gone Mr Robinson

Kansas City, MO
It was the summer 1984 and a local business man advertised for a sales representative secretary. 19 year old Paula Godfrey applied for the job and was thrilled to get the position. She was anxious to start her career with the hopes of it giving her the step up she needed. As Paula left the house, her smile was beaming as she waved goodbye to her parents. It would be the last time her parents would see that smile. Sixteen years later a knock upon a Kansas front door would unleash a secret horror story that only Stephen King could create.
