By now, most of you know the story of the Delphi murders. Actually, this wasn’t a case that I had kept up with. So that’s why this episode is interesting for me. My guest is Nic Edwards—he’s the host of the True Crime Garage podcast. He’s also an author. Nic wrote a book about the murders of Libby and Abby in 2017 called The Delphi Murders: The Quest To Find ‘The Man On The Bridge.’ He told me a lot of things about the case that I didn’t know.  Buy my books: katewinklerdawson.com   If you have suggestions for historical crimes that could use some attention, email me: info@tenfoldmorewicked.com  Follow me on social: @tenfoldmore (Twitter) / @tenfoldmorewicked (Facebook and Instagram)   2023 All Rights Reserved Learn more about your ad choices.

I love 1920s Hollywood…it was full of glitz, glamour, controversy and murder. William J. Mann’s wonderful book: Tinseltown: Murder, Morphine, and Madness at the Dawn of Hollywood details the story of a mysterious, unsolved murder of film director William Desmond Taylor. Did Mann solve Taylor’s murder, 100 years later? Maybe.  Buy my books: katewinklerdawson.com   If you have suggestions for historical crimes that could use some attention, email me: info@tenfoldmorewicked.com   Follow me on social: @tenfoldmore (Twitter) / @tenfoldmorewicked (Facebook and Instagram)   2023 All Rights Reserved  Learn more about your ad choices.

Most of us know this, but women are just as capable of killing as men are. Yet most true crime stories cover men killing women, which makes sense, considering the statistics. Author Jennifer Wright wrote a book called She Kills Me. She did research on dozens of stories, where women are the killers. And now she tells us why.  Buy my books: katewinklerdawson.com   If you have suggestions for historical crimes that could use some attention, email me: info@tenfoldmorewicked.com   Follow me on social: @tenfoldmore (Twitter) / @tenfoldmorewicked (Facebook and Instagram)   2023 All Rights Reserved  Learn more about your ad choices.

In February of 1992, a 22 year old walked into a police station in Florida and confessed that he’d shot and killed his parents. He claimed that he had been possessed by the devil. He was eventually diagnosed with schizophrenia and ruled “not criminally responsible” for the murders on grounds of insanity. But after the trial, where do the "criminally insane” end up? Nonfiction author and psychoanalyst Mikita Brottman unravels the story at the center of her book Couple Found Slain.  Buy my books: katewinklerdawson.com   If you have suggestions for historical crimes that could use some attention, email me: info@tenfoldmorewicked.com   Follow me on social: @tenfoldmore (Twitter) / @tenfoldmorewicked (Facebook and Instagram)   2023 All Rights Reserved  Learn more about your ad choices.

So sick of the woke ideology. The point here has nothing to do with the story she is telling, but she always has to fit it in, even when it is not pertinent. I mean she chose this story, so WTH?

Mark your bingo card. The host works in misogyny even in a story where a female viciously murders another female. Mentions how women are judged in the press on looks, but doesn't opine at all when a female reporter judges the looks of the husband. How bout just tell the story and don't inject this mess into it. It is not germaine at all to this story.

Couldn't figure out why they were taking the man's side as we all know that is statistically who kills a partner...BUT, he is gay, so had to stay woke! Made sense when that came out 15 or 20 minutes in. Everything after is defending the guy man who killed his wife, facts be damned.

A shame, few facts, but plenty of woke speculation and racism. An X supposedly carved into the victim was because of the Confederate flag, with absolutely nothing but supposition from the author to suggest it. We get it, black = good, white = bad. Just tell the story.

What a theatrical death, and how admirable. That would be me, turning to watch the blade as it dropped.

Lizzie just got greedy and decided she didn't want to share her inheritance with her stepmother. See my website here: goappsplay.com/kinemasterdiamondmodapk/

I think Lizzie just got greedy and decided she didn't want to share her inheritance with her stepmother. Perhaps she was influenced by her older sister; I think it's unlikely that Emma was completely in the dark about the murder, given their closeness, but it was definitely about inheritance (an age old motive)

It's a well known fact that poverty leads to increased crime. The Supreme Court knows this, or they should, yet their actions will directly force millions into poverty, which will lead to a massive increase in crime. The facts are well established and understood by those smart enough to put two and two together; but for wealthy, out of touch religious crusaders, the only thing that matters is the power to impose their personal whims on the population.
