Bloody Murder 10 - The Alexandria Eight and Jurgen Bartsch

April 24, 2017

The Alexandria Eight and Jurgen Bartsch...

In Sydney in the 1980's to early 90's up to eighty homosexual men were murdered by roaming gangs of youths who considered “poofter bashing” to be a national sport. One of these gangs, nicknamed the Alexandria 8, took particular delight in participating in these heinous hate crimes. They'd brag to their friends about ambushing and brutally attacking the men and collected newspaper headlines as trophies.

Jurgen Bartsch was a teenage German serial killer in the 1960’s. Adopted by a clean-freak mother who bathed him several times a day until he was 19 and a father who mostly ignored him, Jurgen was also sexually abused by a master at a strict Catholic boarding School. Did these factors contribute to his penchant for torturing, sexually assaulting and murdering young boys or was he just a sick fuck?

Bloody Murder 9 - The Norwegian Black Metal Murder and “Crazy Shelley” Knotek

April 17, 2017

The Norwegian Black Metal Murder and “Crazy Shelley” Knotek...

Church arsonist, possible neo Nazi, former Mayhem bassist and Burzum founder Varg Vikernes claimed he heard through the Norwegian black metal grapevine that band mate Euronymous had planned to tie him to a tree and torture him to death while filming it. Considering how Euronymous handled the suicide of Mayhem lead vocalist Dead, that didn't sound like such a far fetched concept. So Varg stabbed him...23 times.

"Crazy Shelley” sounds like a the nickname of fun party gal but Michelle Knotek would be better described as a cold hearted, sadistic, master manipulator. Boarders who stayed at her Washington home had a habit of disappearing - apparently running off to far away places and never contacting their friends and family again. They also experienced prolonged periods of torture and starvation while being locked in closets and left at the bottom of wells.

Bloody Murder 8 - The Otaku Murderer and the Yeeman Genocide

April 10, 2017

The Otaku Murderer and the Yeeman Genocide...

It was Japan in the late 80's and Tsutomu Miyazaki was heavily into anime. He also enjoyed kidnapping little girls, murdering them and engaging in vile sexual acts with their dead bodies. He claimed at trial that it was his love of anime and an alter ego named “Rat Man” that made him do it. We call bullshit on all of that.

In the mid 1800's in central Queensland the Fraser family and the local Yeeman tribe didn't always see eye to eye. Some settlers thought it was fine to rape and abuse Aboriginals and the Yeeman thought these acts warranted retaliation. The payback that rained down on the Yeeman people, led by William Fraser, was a horrible display of racism and bloodshed that virtually wiped out the Yeeman tribe.

Bloody Murder 7 - The Ice Cream Van Turf War and the Werewolf of Allariz

April 3, 2017

The Ice Cream Van Turf War and the Werewolf of Allariz...

 In Melbourne in 2002 the piped fair ground music and sweet treats of Francesco Mangione's ice cream truck were horribly upstaged by the dying screams of his cousin Dennis. Just how could a turf war over ice cream get so far out of hand that it leads to murder?

Manuel Blanco Romasanta was Spain's first serial killer. He made soap out of his victims fat and sold it at markets. He also claimed to be a werewolf. When asked to prove this to the court he said that the 13 year curse had expired just the week before so he couldn't. Sounds legit to us.

Bloody Murder 6 - The Boozing Barber and The Skeleton in the Suitcase

March 27, 2017
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?

Bloody Murder 5 - The Sunset Strip Slayers, The Big Eared Midget and Topsy the Elephant

March 20, 2017
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.

Bloody Murder 4 - Travis the Chimp, The Gay Slayer and the Shark Arm Murders

March 12, 2017
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.

Bloody Murder 3 - Theresa Knorr and The Truro Murders

March 6, 2017
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.

Bloody Murder 2 - Captain Bath Tub and Caroline Reed Robertson

February 25, 2017
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.

Bloody Murder 1 - Jack Unterweger and Elmer Crawford

February 9, 2017
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.
