Can a person commit heinous crimes, including murder, while sleepwalking? There have been many cases over the years where sleepwalking has been used as a defense. Join Mike and Morf as they discuss cases involving murder and sleepwalking. In some cases, the victim is in the same house. In others, the person drove their car to the murder scene. Ultimately, as it always is, it's up to a jury to decide what happened and the defendant's fate.

I feel like if they put up a billboard that said, "You know who you are. Look at your kids and grandkids and imagine this happening to them. Be a decent human being and come forward."

I am sorry but the police theory in the Germany case seems flawed...not impossible but flawed for sure. I am wondering if you're already having issues;feel like someone's watching you,missing keys,a maid fleeing bc of noises,nightly ritual of locking the house down, informed ppl,even.IF some-thing/one lured you to the barn in the middle of the night why would the women of the house willing be sent out first??? having already had the mentioned issues no way the husband isn't the one going

I normally like this podcast, but listening to the interview with the mother where he made her relive all her trauma was really disturbing. I couldn't hear him continue to ask all these questions just for the benefit of his podcast and not thinking of what she is going through. I stopped listening.

My heart goes out to the entire Crowe family. What their son and his friends went through is unbelievable. And I'm sure there were people that didn't know the circumstances of the interrogation that went years thinking, well, they confessed, the must be guilty, when there was no evidence, just terrible police work.

I would love to get a timeline of where this guy was at what time and look at missing children/people and unsolved assaults and homicides during those timeframes. With the advancement of DNA, put his DNA in the system and see where it pops up.

You know what else is different in these cases, race. That can't be overlooked. The white parents are not looked at as suspects, but the African American mom is? Highly suspect.

Morf needs to educate himself about coercive control because he clearly knows nothing about it. Gypsy was controlled in every way, by her mother and later by her boyfriend, because she knew nothing else. She wasn't even capable to think past the moment she was in because she was never able to develop those skills. Her mother did everything for her, including speaking. Gypsy was only doing what she thought was the only way out, and to be fair it likely was. Dee Dee was slowly killing her.

It's a little unbelievable that it is now 2024, and there are still no DNA results, at least that have been made public. Seriously?? I know DNA takes a while, but almost 3 years?

I'm confused. At 40:18, you say "Brian and Cecelia," but then about 20 seconds later, the other guy is saying, "Dave and Cecelia." What is it? Dave or Brian??
