#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

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.
