The heat was suffocating. She was stuck in her car with no AC in the middle of the Florida summer heat. That’s comparable to being slow-cooked in an oven. She wiped the sweat off her forehead and left a smear of dark pigment on her hand. She was sweating her disguise off. She had to look as natural as possible. Not suspicious. But how could she? She was doing blackface in her car, wearing a giant hoodie, shoes that were 5 sizes too big, and a gun resting on her passenger seat. Maybe she didn’t think this through. She thought it would be easy to kill  - especially, when you have the perfect disguise for it. (Book: “Kill For Me” - by M. William Phelps is the most extensive, thorough deep dive you will find on this case) Full Source Notes: rottenmangopodcast.com To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

There are experiences that only few will ever have the honor of feeling. Winning the World Cup, winning the presidency, maybe even winning an Oscar. It’s a feeling that feels unexplainable. The adrenaline, euphoria, joy, the release of tension when you realize you’re being rewarded for your work. The Miss USA pageant was one of those brain chemistry altering moments.The two women stood there, holding hands, waiting for the winner’s name to be called. The host announced the new Miss USA for 2022, the confetti fell from the sky, and immediately the tension was palpable. The other 50 contestants clapped weakly before exiting the stage. Nobody stood around to congratulate the new winner. Something was seriously wrong. Let’s expose the dark secrets of the pageant industry, the allegations of abuse and assault.

Police had kept a tight lid on this ongoing case of the four University of Idaho students that were murdered in the middle of the night. But now bits and pieces of information have come to light.  And while we have more answers, we have more questions now. Is it true that he visited the victims at the restaurant where they worked? Did he follow and message them on Instagram? Was he an incel that felt injustice in his life for being rejected by women? Did he have a rare condition, called Visual Snow Syndrome, where his vision looked almost like TV static every day?  But the most pressing unanswered question, why?  Probable Cause Affidavit: https://www.eastidahonews.com/2023/01/read-affidavit-in-kohberger-murder-cased-warning-graphic-content/  Unsealed Search Warrant: https://kfor.com/news/search-warrant-for-idaho-suspect-bryan-kohberger-unsealed/  Full Source Notes: rottenmangopodcast.com To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

The 3 men sat in front of the priestess. She was their spiritual godmother. The one that was to help them stay protected in life. She peered into a crystal bowl filled with water. Her wrinkled face changing rapidly, her eyes darting about, it was as if she was watching a silent movie in the bowl. She told them that bad bad things were happening around them. She saw a spirit. She looked up and indicated the spirit was behind them. The men jerked their heads and saw nothing. “She’s there. The woman. She’s following you, her spirit wandering around, what you did to her… it’s bad. She will now follow you wherever you go.” The 3 men left with chills. How did she know what they did to Kim? They wondered if the spirit behind them was on fire… because that’s what they did to Kim.

The couple were in bed. The same one that they had slept in every single night for the past few years. Only, nothing about the day was normal. Jackie was inconsolable.  She was sobbing, shaking, not understanding what was going on. Her husband, Tom, tried to comfort her. He told her everything was going to be alright. He was going to be with her.  He tried to lean over and grab her hand so he could lovingly stroke it, giving her more reassurance. Only, nothing was going to be okay. They were tied up, thrown onto the bed, by an evil child star who was making plans to have them thrown overboard the yacht.  Full Source Notes: rottenmangopodcast.com To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

It was her favorite outfit. A red Michael Jordan jersey, black shorts, and sneakers. She was hesitant about wearing it because, well, the color red meant something in the area, but her mom encouraged her to wear what she wanted. Besides, all she was doing was quietly waiting for the bus to take her back home to Grandma’s. As she stood there waiting, in red, a car drove past. For a brief second, the guys laid eyes on her. A girl wearing red. She was the one. That split second would lead to the horrific gang rape, torture, mutilation, and murder of a 14-year-old girl who just wanted to wear her favorite color.

This is the ongoing case of the Idaho Murders. There were 6 roommates living in an off campus house when in the middle of the night, someone had entered the home, and left after taking 4 lives. Since this is an ongoing case, there have been many speculations online of who it could have been. People were pointing fingers at just about anyone. But breaking news - a suspect has been taken into custody. Which only brings us to ask more questions - what connection did the suspect have to the victims? Did he know them? And does the fact that he was studying criminology and getting his PhD in Criminal Justice have anything to do with the case?

His two sons were out playing in the back while he supervised through the kitchen window. The boys were 13 and 12. What should have been a heartwarming moment, watching his two sons play and get along, was instead filled with anxiety. His friend asked, “what’s wrong?” “I don’t trust Derek.” His friend was confused. He peered at the window to see the boys playing on the swing set. “I don’t trust him. I’ve read the diaries. I’ve seen the pictures. Look at them. Look at them, they look like they’re plotting something.” Two hours later - Terry would be found dead. Both sons missing. House on fire.

Joe’s mom had big big plans for him. She was one of those parents that liked to have high expectations for her children. She wanted Joe to accomplish things she never thought of doing when she was his age. She told him “you’re going to be a big big star in those films Joe.” He was confused. He was only 9. He didn’t know how to read, write, or even talk so how was he going to memorize a full script? She must have caught onto his curious expression because she looked down at him and beamed… “You’re going to be world’s youngest p*rn star!” Joe was too young to know what that meant but he would soon find out. Book: “Cry Silent Tears” - by Joe Peters (This was one of the most eye opening books I’ve read this entire year. If you do anything this week, please go give this book a read. There is so much to learn here.)

His best friend finally had enough and brought him to a therapist. He had no idea that he would start plotting murder there.

There are a few things you should do before moving out of your house. Most people will make a short to-do list of sorts. Turn off the power, check all the closets for valuables, things like that. But even then you will always leave some part of yourself behind… maybe it’s a piece of mail, your welcome mat, or maybe even your scent. It’s inevitable. Understandable. You probably wouldn’t expect to find dead bodies though. The headless bodies of two young boys. They weren’t hidden in the chimney, or buried in the backyard, they were slumped over in a room in plain sight. You couldn’t help but wonder. What the hell was the previous owner doing? What happened? And where are the heads?

“Welcome to IHOP (International House of Pancakes), how many people in your party?” Dee had the routine down to a science. She knew what to say, when to smile, when to talk about her kids, when to flirt so she could keep the tips rolling in. Today was not her day though. She wanted to throw up. Her hands were shaking and she was messing up everyone’s orders. She ran to the bathroom to splash water on her face. She reminded herself how important this was. She took out the crumbled piece of paper in her apron that a customer had left for her. It had “$3000” written on it. That’s how much it would cost to kill the man she wanted dead. He needed to die in order for her to keep her job.

He was the type of psychiatrist that was to get to the bottom of someone’s underlying problem. What was the real reason she thought herself to be the devil’s child? What made her feel like she was so evil she could bring out the darkness in others? And what about those two guys? The ones she was so insistent that they were trying to seduce her? She claimed she just knew they were either going to seduce her or they would all commit some violent crimes together. She seemed scared of her relationship with the two guys. You’re probably hoping the doctor calls the police to report the two men but that would be impossible. Because the two seductive men were her two 4-year-old sons. And soon Sheila would be labeled as a murderer… but what if there really was a man out there to get her?

It’s said that there are a lot of dark spirits in New Orleans. It might be one of the most haunted cities in the entire world and one story that the city can’t seem to escape is that of Madame LaLaurie. The rumors go like this - she tortured her victims and experimented on them. It’s said she liked to drill skulls into victims’ heads and insert spoons inside so she could “stir their brains.” It’s said that she would stick ash, feces, and other vile things into the victim’s mouths, ears, and eyes, and sew them shut. Another disturbing rumor was that she would cut holes into their stomachs, pull out their intestines, and wrap them around their bodies like belts. Whatever the rumors were, the truth was much worse in the haunted LaLaurie mansion in New Orleans. Full Source Notes: rottenmangopodcast.com This episode is brought to you by BetterHelp.

We're convinced Stephanie is baby voicing her way through sexual/animal torture stories into being full on kink material for sociopaths.

I don't mean any disrespect to this brilliant podcast, but I couldn't listen past about the first 9 minutes of this episode. By then, this old man was already horrified and nauseated

I discovered this podcast last night while looking for something new to listen to. (Of course I went back and listened to the first part of this story.) This story nearly brought tears to my eyes many times, which won't do for a 53-year-old man listening while doing factory work. It also made me sick to my stomach at times. But the hosts do such a brilliant job of telling the story, of being thorough without ever being boring. If this pair of episodes is any indication of the quality of the podcast as a whole, I believe I'll be listening for a long time.
