In the second installment of our two-part series delving into the depraved life of serial killer Israel Keyes, we turn our attention to the chilling escalation of this elusive "phantom psychopath." For years, he ran circles around law enforcement, ruthlessly and tragically selecting his victims at random with unparalleled precision and attention to detail. However, there came a point when this malevolent individual lost his meticulous touch and faltered after committing an unspeakable act of cruelty against a young woman working at an Alaskan coffee stand. At long last, Israel Keyes' reign of terror came to an end. And the FBI interrogation that transpired after his apprehension, coupled with the dramatic, enigmatic, and truly shocking final chapter, provided an absolutely outrageous conclusion to this horrific case.   Instagram + Threads: @psychopediapod @tank.sinatra @investigatorslater Patreon: Email: Website:     The co-hosts of this podcast were not present at the time(s) of the events described.  Consequently, the information contained in this podcast was obtained from third-party resources and research which we relied upon.  As such, we are unable to guarantee the absolute accuracy, completeness, usefulness and/or  timeliness of the content(s) of this podcast, and assume no liability for any errors and/or omissions as to such content, and/or any offered opinions and/or comments. 
In the depraved world of serial killers, Israel Keyes stands out as a chilling enigma. While he may not be a trending household name like Jeffrey Dahmer or Ted Bundy, this self-proclaimed "hunter" of humans was once regarded by the FBI as one of the most terrifying individuals they had ever encountered. Keyes meticulously planned and executed a series of brutal murders across the United States, leaving behind a trail of unanswered questions and hidden horrors. Known for his unique ability to blend seamlessly into society, Keyes was a master manipulator whose crimes remained undetected for an entire decade. This cold-blooded predator's case continues to baffle investigators and offers a disturbing glimpse into the mind of a remorseless, highly organized, and efficient serial killer. Join us as we delve into the dark and complex world of Israel Keyes, a twisted man who proved that evil can lurk in plain sight.   Instagram + Threads: @psychopediapod @tank.sinatra @investigatorslater Patreon: Email: Website:     The co-hosts of this podcast were not present at the time(s) of the events described.  Consequently, the information contained in this podcast was obtained from third-party resources and research which we relied upon.  As such, we are unable to guarantee the absolute accuracy, completeness, usefulness and/or  timeliness of the content(s) of this podcast, and assume no liability for any errors and/or omissions as to such content, and/or any offered opinions and/or comments.

EP30: Evil Orphan Imposter


For many, the idea of family is often seen as a reliable wellspring of love and support.  However, in the case of the Mauerova family from the Czech Republic, the concept of family takes a different turn.  Instead of being a source of safety, comfort, and unconditional love, their family became a danger zone characterized by profound suffering, twisted perversion, and unfathomable torture.  In today's case we explore a family shrouded in extraordinary secrecy, manipulation, control, and brutality.  Their unique form of cruelty encompassed cults, confinement, cages, and even cannibalism, intertwined with elements of religious mysticism, delusions, and identity theft.  There is A LOT to unpack with this case and many complex avenues to explore.  Please listen to this episode with caution, as the subject matter is truly devastating and may be difficult to hear.   Instagram + Threads: @psychopediapod @tank.sinatra @investigatorslater Patreon: Email: Website:
In the second installment of our two-episode coverage of this heartrending case, we delve into the cruel and shockingly recent actions of an ostensibly unremarkable woman, Lucy Letby, who perpetrated heinous crimes against the most vulnerable of all: newborn infants. We discuss possible motives behind Lucy Letby's heinous crimes, how she was caught, the trial that ensued, and where she is now. Additionally, we shine a light on those who deserve the utmost remembrance amidst the recent surge of media coverage: namely, the innocent victims and their families.

For nearly a full year between June 2015 and June 2016, the neonatal unit at Countess of Chester Hospital in England was plagued by a series of heart-wrenching and inexplicable infant deaths at a rate that was not just alarming, but also statistically unusual and significant.  Tragically, newborn baby fatalities and/or near-death collapses were occuring abruptly and often, and crucially, under the care and supervision of one young nurse named Lucy Letby. As the expression goes:  once is an accident, twice is a coincidence, three times is a pattern. Seventeen times (at least) is the work of the most prolific child serial killer in modern UK history.

EP27: Brazilian Dexter

EP27: Brazilian Dexter


Pedro Rodrigues Filho, known as “The Brazilian Dexter,” was a real-life, self-proclaimed vigilante serial killer once referred to as the “perfect psychopath.”  This ruthless individual ranks in the top 5 serial killers of all time globally, and by his own estimate was responsible for taking the lives of over 100 drug dealers, criminals, rapists, and murderers. While Pedro was undoubtedly brutal and capable of committing absolute atrocities against other men, he was often thanked, celebrated, and deemed morally righteous.   This case provides a deep-dive into the outlandishly savage life and actions of a violent perpetrator (or vigilante, depending on who you ask) who served as the inspiration behind the media sensation/award winning character, Dexter Morgan.   Instagram + Threads: @psychopediapod @tank.sinatra @investigatorslater Patreon: Email: Website:

EP26: Instagram Execution


The realm of social media empowers us to effortlessly showcase our entire lives with a simple click of a button, especially through livestreaming capabilities.  Horrifyingly, a sinister underbelly has emerged within the realm of livestreaming where some harness the expansive scope and viral capabilities of social media to disseminate hate and commit heinous acts of violence, exposing their depravity for all to see.   Just one week prior to the recording of this episode, one person took center stage in this dark digital theater and contributed in the most reprehensible manner to the sickening upswing of livestreamed criminal activity.  Indicating that he was going to present a “live execution” on Instagram, this nightmarish perpetrator committed an exceptionally brutal act of violence against an innocent woman who, tragically, met her demise in a manner that was both shockingly public and profoundly tragic.    Instagram + Threads: @psychopediapod @tank.sinatra @investigatorslater Patreon: Email: Website:
In the 1980s, Gary Heidnik ran a church out of his home in Philadelphia with fifty devout congregants professing their unwavering loyalty. Flaunting multiple flashy cars and a considerable bank account accumulated through the contributions of his vulnerable devotees, this spiritual leader ensured that all adherents remained committed to his teachings and, crucially, perpetually subordinate.  However, it was the tragic plight of a group of enslaved women kept in Heidnik’s basement beneath his church that would ultimately catapult this despicable individual into infamy, and would later serve as the perverse inspiration behind the notorious cinematic character Buffalo Bill from "The Silence of the Lambs."  Heidnik subjected his female captives to the horrors of ongoing sexual enslavement, severe physical abuse, and twisted psychological torment.   If you’ve seen the literal horror movie based on this tragic case, you might believe you are prepared for the extent of the moral corruption and depravity at play. However, we urge you to exercise discretion while listening, as the gruesome and heartbreaking acts addressed in this episode surpass any portrayal a Hollywood production could possibly convey.  PLEASE LISTEN WITH CAUTION!

EP24: Womb Raider


When a woman in Texas was pulled over for driving erratically, the state trooper on duty was shocked to discover a newborn baby laying across the lap of the distressed driver.  The driver explained to the officer that she had just given birth in her car and required medical assistance right away. However, upon arriving at the hospital, it became shockingly evident that the woman's body did not display any indication whatsoever of having recently given birth.  In a horrifying revelation, it was determined that the excessive blood covering the woman's skin and clothing had clearly come from someone else's had the baby.  This is the absolutely heinous case of death row inmate Taylor Renee Parker, also known as "The Womb Raider." PLEASE LISTEN WITH CAUTION: this case is both profoundly brutal and deeply heartbreaking. Instagram + Threads: @psychopediapod @tank.sinatra @investigatorslater Patreon: Email: Website:
Love can drive people to engage in some pretty outlandish behavior.  So can meth.  The convergence of these two potent elements in today’s case led to the absolutely tragic and brutal death of a 25 year old Wisconsin man named Shad Thyrion. The degree of horror in this case, ranging from decapitation to dismemberment, and the police being compelled to participate in a chilling scavenger hunt for missing body parts, makes it almost difficult to believe that such a heartbreaking reality could be true.  Sadly, this atrocious crime was indeed committed by a woman named Taylor Schabusiness, who not only meticulously executed each heinous act detailed in this episode, but also claimed to have enjoyed it.  Please listen with caution!   Instagram + Threads: @psychopediapod @tank.sinatra @investigatorslater Patreon: Email: Website:
Javed Iqbal is undeniably one of the most prolific and horrifying serial killers in history. Yet surprisingly, his name remains relatively unknown to many. This merciless individual managed to perpetrate unspeakable violence against 100 vulnerable children living on the streets of Lahore, Pakistan, with little notice from the authorities. Tragically, Javed subjected this powerless demographic of children to unthinkable brutality, whose plight went largely unnoticed until it quite literally wound up on the door of law enforcement. As we delve into the psychological and gruesome motivations behind Javed Iqbal's actions, we shed light on the young victims who were tragically considered "invisible" and unworthy of protection when they needed it the most. The only solace for some is the "eye for an eye" sentence that Javed Iqbal was ultimately given... Instagram + Threads: @psychopediapod @tank.sinatra @investigatorslater Patreon: Email: Website:

Transport yourself back to childhood for a moment and picture yourself asleep on the couch. The light from the TV is flickering behind your closed eyes and you're only vaguely aware, yet fully content with the fact that you're still on the couch rather than in your bed. Now imagine yourself being carried off the couch in the middle of the night by someone you assume to be your parent bringing you to your room, but then feel confused by the sudden and expected sight of outdoor surroundings.  With concern growing, you look up at the person carrying you to's a complete stranger. And a sadistic, cruel, psychopathic one at that.    This was the nightmarish reality that faced 13-year-old Thad Phillips in 1995 when he was abducted from his home in the middle of the night by one of the most depraved human beings to ever exist, Joe Clark. With a fetish for hearing the sound of bones cracking, Joe forced 13-year-old Thad to endure 43 hours of absolute hell so that he could indulge in his sick and twisted pleasure.  This case is horrific and devastatingly gruesome (please listen with caution) but has a truly astounding outcome.  Do not miss it!

At long last, a suspect has been apprehended in this profoundly tragic case that has continued to haunt residents of Long Island, New York (including Tank and Slater) while rocking an entire nation. Who is this new suspect who has allegedly committed some of the most heinous crimes imaginable while somehow managing to elude police detection all this time? What is the evidence that points to his alleged guilt? How did a new task force of law enforcement agents track this suspect's movements and collect his DNA for over a year?

The Long Island Serial Killer case, also known as The Gilgo Beach Murders, has been a haunting unsolved mystery for over a decade that seems to have touched the lives of all New Yorkers, Tank and Slater included. From the disappearances of multiple young women to the discovery of dismembered remains on our local beaches, and even allegations of police corruption, this chilling case is as baffling as it is tragic. Incredibly, after more than a decade of twists and turns, a significant breakthrough occurred just two days prior to the recording of this episode, bringing this absolutely gruesome case back into the spotlight where it belongs.  Stay on top of this actively developing case by listening to Part 1 of our two-part bonus episode: Gilgo Beach: Massacre in the Marsh.

In this week's episode we are joined by special guest, comedian Mark Normand. When a grown man with a ruptured colon, blue lips, and a fading pulse crawled through the doors of a hospital in Washington state, doctors immediately suspected foul play given the unique nature of his injury. Following this man's tragic death, an official investigation ensued, leading law enforcement to make a truly outlandish discovery. The man's colon had been ruptured by an extremely large penis that entered his body during a "niche" sex act. And while the well-endowed perpetrator was indeed responsible for causing his partner's death, he could not be held legally accountable in any jurisdiction under the existing legal frameworks. And that's because the perpetrator of this absolutely outrageous crime....was a horse.   We are delving into the highly disturbing and legally significant case of the Enumclaw horse sex ring.  Brace yourself as we explore the intriguing and unsettling realm of taboo sexual paraphilias and the individuals who seek to engage in high-risk, and often criminal behavior to satisfy an incredibly unique sexual appetite.

EP19: High Heel Homicide

EP19: High Heel Homicide


While all acts of violence and cruelty directed at innocent individuals are condemnable, certain cases distinguish themselves as particularly macabre, even within the realm of the most heinous offenses.  This case falls into that category.  Jerry Brudos, an American serial killer and necrophiliac, developed an obsession with high heel shoes at a young age. The profound psychological harm inflicted upon him during his childhood by his cruel mother combined with his high heel fixation, ultimately drove Jerry Brudos to commit unspeakable acts of barbarity against innocent women.  Earning himself the title “Shoe Fetish Slayer,” this individual is, without question, one of the most evil psychopathic killers we’ve explored to date.  Prepare yourself...

When 15-year-old Mary Vincent stuck her thumb out along the side of a road in Berkley, California, her hope was to hitch a ride away from her strict parents towards a new beginning. Mary was positively thrilled when a grandfatherly looking man in a truck pulled up beside her and offered to drive her exactly where she wanted to go. But when the driver veered off route and instead drove Mary, who was suddenly now his captive, to a completely isolated desert in the pitch black of night, she knew in her gut that her life was in danger. And when her captor removed a hatchet from his toolkit, this young girl's life was forever, and irrevocably, altered in the most horrific of ways. Because the man who so kindly offered Mary Vincent a free ride just hours earlier was none other than Larry Singleton, more famously known as the "Mad Chopper." And the heinous acts of sexual violence and mutilation inflicted on this innocent teenage girl is truly what nightmares are made of. But incredibly, this story does not exactly end the way you might have expected it to. Do not miss this is as miraculous as it is terrifying.

This headlining case of the England-based TikTok star Mahek Bukhari, which is being tried in court NOW (at the time in which this episode was recorded), is truly astonishing.  The twists and turns involved in this outrageous case are mind-blowing and reveal the grave lengths that this social media figure has taken in order to preserve her spotlight on the global stage.  We've all seen the tremendous reach that social influencers have today.  It’s difficult to avoid their kitschy ads (pumpkin spiced latte in hand) pushing skincare products, weight loss supplements, detox teas, and the answer to all of our prayers.  Whether through video reels, stories, posts or live streams, the public is inundated with social influencers trying to....well, influence us. And those who are able to do this successfully stand to make millions of dollars through brand sponsorships and advertisements.  As such, the stakes are high and many would likely do whatever it takes to stay on top.  Sadly, this notion was made abundantly clear by Bukhari who, in February of 2022, was involved in a double-homicide along with multiple other defendants, including her own mother.  Two young lives were tragically lost in a horrific manner as a result of Bukhari's effort to bury some delicate information that stood to threaten, damage or even destroy her public image.  We'll walk you through the facts of this case, the players involved, and the progress of the trial...because it is truly devastating.  Stay current with us on this one and tune in to hear about an Influencer Gone Wild.

EP16: Mommy Is a Murderer


To the outside world, Shelly Knotek presented like the perfect mother.  She had three lovely daughters, cheerful family photos covering every wall of their farmhouse, and a glowing smile for anyone who glanced in her direction.  But then, psychopaths are known to be master manipulators.  Because Shelly's three lovely daughters were quite literally dying inside.  The cheerful photos on the walls were stage props.  And the smile that Shelly expertly presented was nothing more than a mask she wore to disguise a predatory grin.  Shelly subjected her daughters, as well as many of their houseguests, to unrelenting physical violence, sexual abuse, psychological torture...and sometimes, death.  Her goal was to humiliate her subjects in a variety of cruel and unusual ways, and to break them down in such a way that would enable her to maintain absolute power and control.  Shelly was like a twisted puppetmaster out of a nightmare...and she was absolutely RUTHLESS.  Check out this outrageous case, and please listen with caution!
Patrick Mackay, known as the Devil's Disciple, is one scary motherf*cker.  Labeled a psychopath at age 15 (before ever even killing anyone), Patrick grew up to become one of the most prolific serial killers of all time in the United Kingdom.  His rise to terror was riddled with bouts of domestic violence, cruel and unusual treatment of animals, burglaries, alcohol abuse, inadequate mental health treatment, and roast chicken.  Patrick confessed to murdering thirteen people, including a priest, and was enthralled by Nazism.  A real gem!  Do not miss the brutal, tragic, and fascinating case of Britain's longest serving prisoner.

The judge is actually female. Justice system in the balkans is really poorly implemented, due to various reasons. Unfortunately this case is different only because of the live stream component, but otherwise common :(

while I enjoy this podcast and will continue to support it, I didn't appreciate the trash talk about it being the only comedy true crime podcast. They have to be aware of My Favorite Murder, which is absolutely a true crime comedy podcast, and Tank seems to be all about positivity amd spreading joy so why say (as Investigator Slater did) that they are the only comedy true crime podcast "that's funny anyway" and act like they are breaking new ground. Please give some respect to those that have absolutely done it before you aka Karen Killgarif and Georgia Hardstark.
