Episode 248: Marion Stembridge

2021-07-1701:12:0519

You know we love an old-timey case around these parts, and boy does Alaina have a doozy to deliver. Marion Stembridge was out there wildin’ in Georgia scamming people out of money left and right with his shady underground businesses. He came from money but always wanted more and would stop at nothing to get it. When he got got though, he was not pleased and as we will see he went on an absolute rampage killing anyone he felt wronged him. AND he did this all while the town of Milledgeville was trying to celebrate their 150th birthday. Priorities, am I right? Georgia Tales by Ray Chandler (Great book with interesting tales!)

Two parts in one day!? Yes please. Alaina wraps up our two part series on Darrell Rich. Things really get to unravelling here when Darrell starts talking to anyone who will listen. He’s making up crazy stories about Hell’s Angels, failing polygraphs and spiraling out of control. Luckily in this episode we do get to hear about his arrest and conviction.

In this two parter Alaina covers the case of Darrell Rich. Growing up Darrell felt rejected by his parents and in his adult life that would lead to some serious issues. Any time he felt rejected he would turn to violence by hunting down young girls, raping them and either killing them or leaving them for dead. Darrell Rich is such a terrifying monster and we’re only in part one.

Melanie Nadia Ethier grew up in Northern Ontario in a pretty small community. At the time, the community was made up of only about 4,400 people.

Part two of John Robinson is somehow crazier than part one! He stays on his bullshit: scamming people out of thousands of dollars, continuing to fake his philanthropist ways and he’s still trying to tell us that Lisa Stassi is happy and in Colorado with a man named Bill.

John Edward Robinson is one of the wildest schemers you’ll probably hear about. He spent most of his early life creating fake businesses and scheming investors and co-workers out of thousands of dollars. Somehow he avoided long prison terms and was able to fly under the radar of his parole officers in a big way. Things started to escalate even more though when John started “helping” young mothers out. You’re going to want to hear the end of this one guys, and we’ll see you soon for part 2!

Stephen Griffiths dubbed himself the Crossbow Killer after murdering and dismembering three women. Susan Rushworth, Shelley Armitage and Suzanne Blamires were all connected by the work they did. They were so much more than what they did for a living though, they were mothers, sisters, daughters and friends. Stephen Griffith’s took all three of their lives away in a horrific, coldblooded manner because he simply wanted to be a serial killer.  As always thank you to our sponsors: HelloFresh: Get twelve free meals—including free shipping!—when you use code morbid12 at HelloFresh.com/morbid12 Norton Lifelock: Join now and save 25% or more off your first year at Norton.com/MORBID BetterHelp: This podcast is sponsored by BetterHelp and Morbid: A True Crime Podcast listeners get 10% off their first month at betterhelp.com/Morbid Purple: Right now, you’ll get 10% off any order of $200 or more!

We’re bringing you to one of our favorite vacation spots: Provincetown Mass. Only we aren’t sunbathing and playing volleyball on the beach, we’re here to solve a cold case, y’all. The Lady of the Dunes, as she’s known, was discovered  on July 26, 1974, in the tall grass at the Race Point Dunes. Throughout the past 47 years investigators have worked tirelessly following up on leads and exhuming her body every time some kind of new technology comes up. To this day they still don’t know who killed the woman, or more importantly, who the woman even is!

The night of September 22, 1986 was an absolute nightmare on Phillip Island. On an island known for its nightly penguin parades, no one expected to find a young woman brutally murdered on her bedroom floor. Elizabeth “Beth” Barnard was only 23 years old when she was discovered stabbed to death and left with the letter “A” carved into her abdomen. She’d been having an affair with a married man, Fergus Cameron. Did his wife Vivienne do this to Beth, or was it a stalker from her past?

Lake Lanier.. Honestly I feel like that’s all I need to say. This place has so much creepy surrounding it!! There are giant catfish that have been compared to volkswagen, phantom hands pulling you under the water and not to mention the entire submerged counties that lie beneath. There are also multiple deaths and murders that have occured in or around the lake. So much to unpack here, just in time for your memorial day weekend!!

You guys. You’re in for a real treat if you’ve never heard the tale of Michael Malloy. To call him durable is to vastly undersell this story.

Upon first glance it’s easy to brush these off as accidents, young men drinking too much and slipping or falling to their deaths: sad but not unheard of. It was in 2008 that Kevin Gannon, Anthony Duarte, Mike Donovan and Dr. Lee Gilbertson presented a theory to the world: What if these cases aren’t accidents at all? What if there is some kind of gang spread across the nation, picking these guys off 1 by 1.
