It was a bit gruesome even for a carnival act. The snake and the rat. A giant king cobra in the cage hissing about and an employee would throw rat after rat into the cage. No matter how full, bored, or even tired the snake was, it would kill each rat that entered the cage. Even most adults would grab their child’s arm and rush away. It was never a pretty sight to see death in action, but little Pee Wee Gaskins sat glued to the bars of the cage. Eyes never leaving the snake. He felt in awe. The snake didn’t kill because it was hungry. No, the snake killed because it wanted to. This revelation was Pee Wee’s first erection, and he knew from that day forward he wanted to be a king cobra snake. He wanted to be the most prolific of all the serial killers.

They were called “Comfort Women,” but their lives would not be in any sense comfortable. They were kidnapped, tortured, and held hostage to be assaulted by military officials. Soldiers had their own name for them; it was “public toilets.” Most of these women either died in captivity from murder, disease, or from the sheer violence of their assaults. But don’t be fooled by the name, sometimes comfort women were girls as young as 11 years old. Why? Well, wartime always brings out the superstitions in soldiers, and it was believed that assaulting a virgin brought soldiers strength and power. And they would need that strength to go out and kill over 200,000 citizens in the city of Nanking. This might be one of the darkest cases we have covered in a very long time.

Leslie only had Marie to lean on. They were best friends. Sure, they just started bonding, but Leslie really needed someone to count on. They spent countless hours on the phone, whispering, giggling, staying up, hoping their parents wouldn’t hear them. But it was a bit strange that she kept asking Leslie about what had happened in that basement. Leslie had been gang raped by some of the most popular kids in high school in the football captain’s basement. There was a trial underway for it. Marie kept asking about it. Marie asked about how much fun Leslie had if she would do it again, and how Marie could be invited to be assaulted by the boys. She said she wanted what Leslie had. Leslie was desperate for a friend. She said she was willing to go a second time with her new best friend - if that’s what she wanted.

When I say “it was the town’s best-kept secret,” what do you imagine? Maybe an unknown hole-in-the-wall restaurant with the best milkshakes? Maybe a secret hangout spot near the river with the best city views. Not for the town of Glen Ridge; it was much darker than that. For them, their best-kept secret was their boys. The town’s group of star athletes - the football players, wrestlers, basketball players, and the most popular boys in class. So why are they a secret? Well, they’re not. But the secret was over a dozen of the most popular boys gang raped a disabled high school girl. They assaulted her with a baseball bat and broomstick. It was a secret kept by the boys, the parents, teachers, faculty members, coaches, and social workers, for 3 full months before the police were alerted.

On the surface, there was nothing remarkable about Larry Lavin. He lived in a quiet neighborhood with his wife and family, drove a Volvo, and practiced dentistry in Philadelphia. But, from 1978 to 1984, Dr. Lavin moonlighted as one of the largest cocaine kingpins on the Eastern Seaboard. Through the voices and perspectives of law enforcement, drug runners, friends, business associates and Larry Lavin himself, Wolves Among Us, Season One, The Larry Lavin Story, tells the story of Lavin’s dual life, his impact on Philadelphia culture in the late 70s and early 80s, and the stunning events that led to an intense manhunt for one of the FBI’s 10 most wanted fugitives. Wolves Among Us is a presentation and creation of Peabody-nominated C13Originals, a Cadence13 Studio.

John was devastated when he got the call from his wife’s twin. His wife of two and a half years had just passed. Sure, he knew that she had been terminally ill for a while, but that didn’t ease the grief he felt. So when his wife’s twin sister showed up at his front door, he welcomed her in with open arms. She was the only one that understood his pain. They were identical twins, but she had blonde hair, whereas his wife had brown. She was also a bit thinner than his wife. Maybe she reminded him so much of his wife that he slowly fell in love with her. He felt it was natural to connect with her, but he had no idea that she had planned it all. His wife’s twin had been obsessed with their life. Their picture-perfect marriage, their lovely plush house, and she wanted it for herself. She felt she deserved it more than her twin. So she was here to take it. Everything. The house, the husband, and the life.

They say when you seek revenge, you should dig two graves. One for yourself as well. The PTA moms didn’t think of that when they raged war. Jill was said to have gone up and down the hallways of the wealthy school to pass out flyers. Flyers that were printed with baseless accusations against another PTA mom. It’s said that she was jealous of the other mom. Some say it’s because she was trying to distract the community from the fact that she was cheating on her attorney husband with 4 firefighters - at the same time. Regardless Jill’s obsession will turn into a web of conspiracies involving child abuse, cheating with the tennis coach, drugs, and death. The result? Two behind bars and millions of dollars on the line. This is the PTA mom nightmare. (Book Red - “I’ll Get You” - by Kelli Peters & Riley J Ford. Such a good book I couldn’t put it down and the emotions were so raw and so real.

Edward’s new boss loved a good team-building event. Most companies would take their employees out for a fun night of bowling. But not Edward’s boss, Robin; he liked to have a more intimate setting. He gathered all 3 of his employees in the attic of his house and told them to follow after him. He started chanting random phrases while holding up an object into the air above them. Then he dramatically pressed the object to his mouth and took a bite. He cackled maniacally and passed it around for everyone to eat. It was an amputated human breast. They were all going to be cannibals from this point on. Robin didn’t care though. He didn’t even care that he ripped the flesh straight from a human being who was still alive. All he cared about was that his employees were bonding with him.

Her boyfriend loved a good surprise. Surprise dates and gifts were kind of his specialty, but this one felt a bit different. She was blindfolded and taken into a building. He tied her to a chair in the middle of an empty room. She was getting giddy. He had been talking to her about buying a house for her soon. Maybe, he had finally done it! He ripped off her blindfold and got in her face to say, “welcome to my mortuary!” Her eyes adjusted to the light, and she looked around. Around her were 2 dead bodies of women laid out on the ground. On the mattress in front of her was a woman tied spread eagle. She was still moving.

You’ve heard of the red rooms - the alleged deep web livestreams of people being assaulted, tortured, and killed. The existence of red rooms is largely debated. But have you ever heard of the “Little Red Mansion?” Because this one is very real. The mansion itself was beautiful, filled with crystal chandeliers, gold crown moldings, and massive rooms filled with over-the-top furniture. It felt like an expensive boutique hotel. But for the girls trapped inside it was the biggest nightmare. They were being held hostage, trafficked to high-powered government officials, injected with hormones, and in the end, their eggs were ripped from their bodies to be sold on the black market. If you walked by the Little Red Mansion, you would think it’s a nice building - you would never imagine the secrets it held.

Detective Nel was having a rough time falling asleep. She had a debilitating migraine and was throwing up all night long. Sure, her job as a detective wasn’t easy, but she almost always slept like a baby. The next day she went into work and was rushed to the cell of a young, doe-eyed girl that she personally arrested last night. It was a shocking case. The girl skinned someone’s entire face off. She wanted to be the next Ed Gein it seemed. In the cell, she saw the same girl covered head to toe in blood, deep gashes in her legs, smiling up at her. There was writing on the walls - in blood. “Along came a little girl” it read. And next to her? A voodoo doll with a piece of hair tied tightly around the neck. It was Detective Neil’s hair.

It was going to be a long day - just like the movies. Each housewife was getting ready, staring into the mirror, clasping on their string of pearls. They hated these gatherings. All the other moms, bratty children, and don’t even get them started on the attorneys that shuffled into the room. Tensions were high. The 5 moms in total hated each other. Technically they should have a lot in common - being that they are all married to high-powered businessmen. They had similar problems but the biggest one of all? Was that they were all dating the same man. And now he was dead. Who killed him? And who will inherit his fortune?

She wore a turtleneck out to the grocery store that day. Sure, a blizzard was coming down on them, but she did it to hide the bruises. She looked around at all the happy faces. The smiling couples. They were so in love. If only they could see what she was going through at home. She couldn’t tell them instead she suffered silently gathering up her groceries. Maybe she heard the other families talking about the winter storm or the news of the escaped prisoner. You know? The one in her living room waiting for her return. The one that had her entire family tied up upstairs? Yeah, that one. She had to hurry back to him.

It had been months since Abby had been held captive in the bucker/torture chamber. The cruelest torture had been carried out on her, every single day. She wanted it all to be over. It didn’t matter anymore that she would never graduate the 7th grade. Nothing mattered except making sure her kidnapper paid for this. Abby wrote a note, naming her kidnapper, and what he had done to her before slipping it into the lining of her shoe. She hoped whoever found her would find the note. And then she filled the tiny gross sink in the corner of her cell, one of the only things that filled the tiny space, and prepared herself to end it all.

Nicole’s phone had been ringing nonstop. It felt like the end of her 15-year-old life. Someone was going around calling Nicole’s friends to tell them nasty rumors about Nicole. How she had no eyebrows, she got ugly, she was talking bad about them, and how she had AIDs. It sounds ridiculous, but to Nicole this was her life. Someone was out there trying to take her down. Take her crown of being the most popular girl in school. She would not stand for it. When she found out who did it - she would do anything to stop them. This is the story of how 8 high school kids played a hand in a 14-year-old girl’s brutal murder. Book: “Under The Bridge” - by Rebecca Godfrey (the best deep dive you will get on this case - she really shed light into the victim’s life and struggles.)

There were always 12. 10 foster kids in the house at all times, plus the two biological children of the Baker parents. 12 kids. All 12 kids would grow up to see some heinous things. It’s alleged that the Bakers would force the foster boys to molest the foster girls in their care. It’s said that the Bakers would even force brothers to inappropriately touch sisters under their direction. Victims came forward to say they were assaulted weekly by Mr. Baker, and they remember being starved as a fear tactic. Most of these kids came out of the foster home as survivors, but one, one child grew up to become the predator. One that would prey on victims where they might be the most vulnerable - the church.

She never used to sleepwalk, but maybe that’s what happens when you hit your 30s? Her life was spiraling out of control because of it. She woke up one morning dangling off the side of 4th-floor balcony. She had no idea how she even got there. She could have seriously hurt herself or even died… she was just thankful he was there to save her. Or that time she woke up covered in blood. He told her that he found her roaming around at night, in a daze, with a knife in her hand. He thinks she murdered someone… She started panicking. That’s exactly what he wanted. If history had taught him anything, it was that she was close. Close to taking her own life. He wanted to break her.

#187: The Cartier Killer

It sounded like a new age of crime. We’ve all heard of jealousy being the motivation behind the murder, but this was a bit different. She was jealous that Naomi was a bigger “influencer” than she was. She hated that she was getting all the love, the likes, the follows. She was going to put a stop to it. Her brilliant plan? Have her boyfriend assault Naomi so that she would be too traumatized to work again. The plan spiraled out of control, and Naomi ended up murdered. But this case is far from simple. The boyfriend was the son of Cartier’s Chairman in Asia. As new information came out - people found themselves changing their minds nonstop. Did she really kill out of jealousy? Did she even know?

He called it the “bear cave.” He liked the sound of it. Bears were unassuming predators… that kind of sounded like him. Inside his “bear cave” there was a desk, an inviting yellow beanbag, and of course, it was filled with snacks and sodas. Don’t forget his hidden condom box, a stack of porn magazines, and pillows hidden in a box that said “Christmas decorations.” The only really odd thing about his “cave?” - it was in the library of a local middle school. The teacher had been using it to sexually molest and rape dozens of middle school students.

Both men were racing in their cars for different reasons. Peter was stepping on the pedal to his wife. She was sick, and he needed to get to her ASAP. He was worried for her. Larry was in his car - racing to his girlfriend, who wasn’t picking up his calls. He was worried for her. Both men were gripping their steering wheels till their knuckles turned white. They were both racing to the same woman. They both knew it. Maybe they hoped whoever got their first would get her love. But both would walk away without her. She would choose neither of them because someone had taken her life.

Ooookay, Stephanie. That's gonna be a no from me. There's something about her excited baby voice exclaiming about all the ways to rape.

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.
