209. The Bone Collector: The Death of David Reed


There is a job for kids that doesn’t exist today: the old paperboy. Kids would wake before sunrise and hop on their shiny Schwinn bikes with a banana seat to deliver the newspapers to the neighborhood. 13-year-old David Reed was the local paper boy for the Pottsville Republican, and he always made sure to get papers to his neighbors in Schuylkill Haven so they could get the morning news with their coffee. David always wore his uniform, a t-shirt with the newspaper’s name and logo, when he delivered so people knew him and liked the kid. At this age, your bike is your transportation. You take great pride in it, and it gets you to where you want to be. One summer day, David left on his bicycle to go and meet up with friends. This was common; however, when he failed to come home, worry sets in as this was not like David. It was also a concern because David had juvenile diabetes, and eating on time was crucial. It would take years to find out what happened to David Reed.

207. Confession from the Grave: Jack Jones Jr

 Today’s case takes us to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where it is May 31, 1991. The area is well-known to sunbathers and tourists alike. It is home to the Swimmers Hall of Fame and several high-end hotels and restaurants. Millions of people set off to soak up the sand and sunshine each year, and Lorraine Anne Barrett was no different. Lori, as she was known by her friends, was a 32-year Pennesylannia native who set off to enjoy some R and R. She had rented a room at the Days Inn Lauderdale and was about to enjoy her time. The following day, the hotel cleaning staff arrived to clean her room around noon but was shocked upon finding Lorriane dead and not from natural causes. A composite was made and shared with neighboring jurisdictions, but no leads were developed. The case grew cold. It would take some time to find the man responsible, but that was only the beginning of the story, with lots of twists and turns along the way.

206. Without Remorse: The Frankston Serial Killer

 Thank you to Donna for requesting this episode!

*****Content Warning*****

It has been theorized by the experts who study serial killers that a killer’s first victim often knows the offender or, at the very least, lives nearby. Sometimes they are neighbors or friends of friends, coworkers, or possibly people who attend their church. In 1992 on Claude Street in Seaford, Victoria, Australia, two women were unaware that they were about to be 'baby steps' for the person who would become known as the Frankston Serial Killer. They were his trial run, the middle rung on his escalating ladder of carnage. Within months, Paul Denyer would attack and four women, brutally murdering three.

Paul Denyer is seeking parole in 2023, and many don't believe he should ever be released. Please listen to Jen and Cam discuss "The Monster of Frankston: Paul Denyer" and see for yourself. If you feel Denyer needs to stay in prison, please go to and sign the petition.
