Motivated To Death and Dino the Sunshine Boy...

In 2009, motivational speaker and self-help author Jeffrey Locker was stabbed to death in his car in East Harlem. What initially seemed to be a robbery gone wrong turned out to be something far more complicated. 

Dino “The Sunshine Boy” Dibra was a violent thug by the age of 12, jailed by 19, a ruthless multiple killer at 23 and murdered by 25. He was described by his family as having a heart of gold. But others saw him as murderer, standover man, drug dealer and kidnapper who wreaked havoc with the likes of Melbourne underworld figures Andrew "Benji" Venimen, Mark Mallia, Paul Kallipolitis and Carl Williams.

Sexy Sadistic Slayer Sheila LaBarre with Kate Wallinga from Ignorance Was Bliss...

Diagnosed as acutely delusional and sadistic, rabbit-loving Sheila LaBarre murdered at least two of her boyfriends, Michael Deloge and Kenneth Countie, on her remote farm in Epping, New Hampshire. She said she had died of a drug overdose and was sent back to Earth as an angel with special powers here to seek vengeance on paedophiles. The problem was that her victims were not paedophiles. She would seduce slightly built, transient men, move them into her house and completely dominate their lives. Then she would torture them into confessing to being paedophiles on tape, before killing them and burning their remains.

113 - The Many Dead Wives Of Robert Spangler and Crappy Kidnapper Edwin Eastwood

April 2, 2019

The Many Dead Wives Of Robert Spangler and Crappy Kidnapper Edwin Eastwood...

Robert Spangler loved hiking in the Grand Canyon. He also loved being married. What he didn't like was the pesky financial burden of divorce. After the 1990 death of his third wife Donna, whilst hiking in the Grand Canyon, investigators were alarmed to discover his wives often came to grizzly ends that were never anything to do with him. Or were they?

In 1972 , unemployed plasterers Edwin Eastwood and Robert Boland decided to kidnap school children and their teacher from Faraday Primary School for ransom money. Was this a stupid idea? It certainly was. Would Edwin go on to do it again at the Wooreen Primary School, 3 years later after a daring prison escape? He certainly would. Where does the murder come in? You’ll have to listen to find out!

111 - Diabolical Doctor Anthony Pignataro and Emma LaDoux and Her Hat Of Doom

March 18, 2019

Diabolical Doctor Anthony Pignataro and Emma LaDoux and Her Hat Of Doom...

In the late 1990’s Anthony Pignataro was a big-shot plastic surgeon in New York. He drove around in his red Lamborghini and gained international fame for inventing a “Snap on” hairpiece that connected to bolts he drilled into the skulls of bald men. His image was shattered in 1997, when Pignataro’s long history of medical malpractice came to light after another death of a patient, and soon afterwards his wife Debbie was struck down by a mysterious illness.

In 1906, in Stockton, California, Emma LaDoux was in a bigamous pickle. She had one too many husbands. How would she avail herself out of this “too many dicks on the dance floor” problamo? Let’s just say her solution involved a large trunk, a hell of a lot of morphine and one enormous flowered hat.

The Removal Revelation: The Ron and Dan Lafferty Story...

On July 24th, 1984, bearded brothers Ron and Dan Lafferty, radicalised by extreme Mormon beliefs and convinced they were prophets from God, forced their way into a duplex in American Fork, Utah. Here they brutally killed their brother's wife Brenda Lafferty and infant daughter Erica, believing they had received a revelation from God in which they were told to “remove” them from the earth. These senseless murders were fuelled by religious fanaticism, delusions of grandeur, and a long history of family violence.

Barney and Tara join forces for this special edition episode which was a patron request from Alyson Schaefermeyer.

The Green Widow and The Maitland Double Headless Murders...

Realising she’d be better off financially as a widow than a divorcee, Mary Ellen Samuels orchestrated the murder of her husband, Hollywood camera operator Robert Samuels. Then to cover her tracks, she organised the murder of the man who she paid to have her husband killed, her daughter’s fiancé Jim Bernstein.

In 1941, 14 year old Eric Francis Bowles murdered his magician master “Davo the Magnificent." When Sydney Shelley and his wife Elva were found decapitated in their home in 1960, their heads were nowhere to be found and Eric was the prime suspect.  Known as the "Headless Bodies" case, this horrific double murder would go on to spark a macabre fascination worldwide.

February 4, 2019

The Pettingill Family - The True Animal Kingdom...

The phenomenal Australian crime film “Animal Kingdom” is one of our favourites but did you know it’s based on a true story? Ruled by murderous matriarch Kath, the notorious Pettingill family dominated the Melbourne Underworld in the 1970’s and 80’s. They were drug dealers, armed robbers, rapists and murderers. Even police officers were not safe from their reign of terror. This is a tale of extreme drug-use, rampant violent crime and police corruption. But the most shocking thing in this case is that the truth is not only stranger than fiction, it’s also much worse.
