The Boozing Barber and The Skeleton in the Suitcase...
Gilbert Paul Jordan aka the Boozing Barber had a nasty habit of seeking out Indigenous women who were down on their luck in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside and killing them. His weapon of choice was vodka, which led the whole sordid scenario to be dubbed “the so called alcohol murders”.
In 2010 the skeletal remains of Karlie Pearce-Stevenson were found in Belangalo State Forest, NSW – and for once Ivan Milat didn't put them there. Her young daughter Khandalyce's remains were found in a suitcase on the side of the road near Wynarka, South Australia in 2015. How did they get there? And who or what was responsible?

The Sunset Strip Slayers, Cayetano Godino “The Big Eared Midget” and Topsy the Elephant...
Douglas Clark was narcissistic even by 1980's LA standards. He called himself “a sexual athlete” and would charm women with self esteem issues into supporting his lazy ass. Carol Bundy had the kind of horror show upbringing that made her grist for his type of mill. Together they were vile and deadly.
Lock up your children, hide your pets, fire proof your home – and your children and your pets! Cayetano Godino had murder on his mind from a very young age and didn't let his small stature diminish his body count. Although the Argentinian authorities weren't taking him seriously at first, when they did they actually wondered - Did his big ears make him do it?
Topsy gained a reputation as a bad circus elephant because she didn't suffer drunken assholes gladly. The footage of her 1903 execution is both the first and last elephant snuff film we plan on watching.

Travis the Chimp, The Gay Slayer and the Shark Arm Murders...
The story of Travis the chimp and the harrowing 911 call accompanying it will make most people rethink how fun it would be to own a monkey.
On January 1st 1993, Englishman Colin Ireland made a new years resolution to become a serial killer but he had a frustrating time geting kudos for his killings as the police kept assuming his homosexual victims had died accidentally while engaging in S&M games.
In 1935 a great white shark in a Sydney aquarium regurgitated a human arm with a unique tattoo. The investigation to how it got there revealed there were far more sinister things going on in Sydney's seamy underbelly than just the marine life.

Murderous matriarch Theresa Knorr and the Truro serial killers...
Theresa Knorr becomes convinced her eldest daughter Suesan has been casting spells on her to make her fat. The obvious reaction is to kill her and cover up the crime with the help of her other children. Next she forces her second oldest daughter Sheila into prostitution and then claims she gave her VD from a toilet seat. That doesn't end well either.
Truro is a rural area outside of Adelaide (of course) where Christopher Worrell and James Miller dumped the bodies of several girls that had met a grisly end while in their company. Miller eventually told the police everything and claims to have played no role in their assaults and murders and Worrell...well Worrell can't talk anymore.

Captain Bath Tub, Caroline Reed Robertson and that guy who punched a kangaroo in the face...
When sailing a bath tub sized boat from Australia to New Zealand wasn't enough of an adventure Ashley Mervyn Coulson set out on a murderous spree.
In the misguided hopes of somehow becoming beautiful 15 year old dancer Rachel Barber, her former neighbour Caroline Reed Robinson kills her and buries her in a pet cemetery. Essentially the guy who punched the kangaroo in the face is the sanest person here.

Jack Unterweger, the Crawford murders and the Buxom Bandit
An artistic Austrian sex worker slayer, an inventive Australian family annihilator and a boobalicious meth-head robber walk into a podcast.
Jack Unterweger was thought to be rehabilitated and got early release from his prison sentence for murder due to the popularity of his writing projects and the help of some Viennese intellectuals. Unfortunately for the sex workers of Europe and LA his rehabilitation didn't really stick.
Elmer Crawford brutally murdered his wife and 3 children and tried unsuccessfully to make it look like his wife had done it. Instead it just looked completely bizarre and the police spent decades trying to bring him to justice.
The Buxom Bandit thought her large breasts might protect her from the long arm of the law but the fact her face was captured on CCTV cameras meant that was just a pipe dream.
