E60: The Peasenhall Murder

The Peasenhall Murder is one of the most notorious unsolved murders in England. Rose Harsent, a beautiful unwed housemaid, was found murdered in the middle of the night in the sleepy town of Peasenhall. The biggest clue to the murder suspect is Rose’s pregnancy. Was she killed by her unborn child’s father? By a jilted admirer? Or even her ashamed employers? Carter and Wenndy dig into the local gossip of a tiny turn of the century town to find clues on who may have killed Rose Harsent.

E59: Bob Crane Pt. 2

People across America knew Bob Crane as a famous actor. Many others knew him for his sex scandals. And somebody knew him as a person they wanted dead. But when everyone knows who the victim is, it’s a lot harder to nail down a suspect. Carter and Wenndy investigate; was Bob bludgeoned to death by a jealous friend, an upset lover, an angry ex-wife? Or someone who just knew him as a star?

E55: Sir Harry Oakes Pt. 2

Voodoo. Gangsters. A family feud. All were possible factors in the 1943 murder of Sir Harry Oakes, the richest man in the Bahamas. And it only got more complicated when the Duke of Windsor became personally involved in the investigation, bringing in foreign investigators. After following a botched investigation and shoddy court case, Carter and Wenndy consider Oakes’ son-in-law, his friend, and even a Nazi as suspects.

E51: Johnny Stompanato Pt. 2

Cheryl Crane stepped up to take the blame for her mother’s boyfriend’s death, but was she simply covering for her famous mother, silver screen blonde bombshell, Lana Turner? Carter and Wenndy sift through Cheryl’s trial, Hollywood’s top lawyer, and mob threats to determine who really killed gangster Johnny Stompanato. Though the answer may seem obvious, this case has been heavily debated for decades.

E48: The Villisca Axe Murders

One night in the sleepy town of Villisca, Iowa, 8 people were hacked to death in their beds. Prior to this, Villisca had been a thriving, prosperous, and mostly crime-free town.

E46: The Good Hart Murders Pt. 2

Detectives Stearns and Flis hunt for the murder weapons in the Robison Family’s case- two guns that are strikingly hard to find, considering that most people in the woods of Northern Michigan at the time owned a gun. After following the gun hunt, Carter and Wenndy look into Richard’s mysterious contact, “Roebert”; the detective’s prime suspect, Joe Scolaro and The Coed Killer.

E45: The Good Hart Murders

The Robison family was found shot to death in their summer cabin in the idyllic town of Good Hart. If that wasn’t bad enough, by the time the bodies were found, they had been dead for almost a month. Carter and Wenndy explore the decomposed crime scene, and then examine suspects including an escaped mental patient, a drifter, the cabin’s “strange” caretaker, and even one of Richard Robison’s employees.

E42: Monster of Florence Pt. 2

The Monster of Florence shook the hills of Italy so strongly that two separate task forces were assigned to the case. Carter and Wenndy examine how the murderer affected local investigators as well as journalist Mario Spezi, who remained hot on the trail, even interviewing an anonymous source. Suspects ranged from a former convict with a suspicious painting, to practitioners of black magic to even Spezi himself.

E41 The Monster of Florence

When crime reporter Mario Spezi began a story on a murdered couple found in the Italian countryside, he had no idea what a wormhole this chilling tableau would open. The Monster of Florence shot couples and mutilated women, but were the related murders the work of a serial killer, copycat killings, or a member of the mafia gone rogue? Carter and Wenndy investigate the murders’ connections to a Sardinian clan, and discuss the life and theories of journalist Mario Spezi, who spent over 20 years writing about the crimes.
