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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Join Jen and Cam on this very special 1st anniversary Our True Crime Podcast episode as we discuss Harry Moore and the Groveland Four.

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.
