Bloody Murder 108 - The Green Widow and The Double Headless Murders

February 18, 2019

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.

Bloody Murder 107 - The Pettingill Family - The True Animal Kingdom

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.

Bloody Murder 105 - Bushrangers the Kenniff Brothers and Deadly Grandmother Caroline Grills

January 20, 2019

Bushrangers the Kenniff Brothers and Deadly Grandmother Caroline Grills...

Paddy and Jimmy Kenniff were cattle-duffers, pony-pinchers and general rabble rousers. They were the last of the great Australian bushrangers. Roaming the land fully armed and living in caves in country Queensland, in the early 1900s. They would come undone due to the brutal murders of an innocent copper, Constable George Doyle, and a bullying station manager, Albert Dahlke. The story of the Kenniff brothers is one of adventure and tragedy as well as being an intriguing murder mystery.

In Sydney in the late 1940’s, a short, bespectacled, great-grandmother named Caroline Grills became an unlikely serial killer. Caroline loved making cakes, biscuits and cups of tea for her relatives and especially loved seeming like an angel by helping them when they were ill…from the thallium she was poisoning them with.

January 7, 2019

Evil Thomas Halliday and The Murder Of Rhoni Reuter...

In early March 2006, mother of three, Shelley Stephenson vanished from Mildura in northern Victoria, Australia. Suspicion fell upon her ex-partner Thomas Halliday, who had a history of brutal and stalkerish behaviour. What followed was an amazing police investigation and court case, that yielded some unusual results.

Rhoni Reuter was the long-term girlfriend of ex-football player Shaun Gayle, who was seven months pregnant with his baby. Did Shaun kill Rhoni because he didn’t want to be tied down with a family? Or did someone else have a reason for wanting Rhoni and her unborn child dead?

Bloody Murder 101 - The Pied Piper of Tucson and The Ballad of Justin Cox

December 10, 2018

The Pied Piper of Tucson and The Ballad of Justin Cox...

Serial killer Charles Howard Schmid Jr was a bizarre young man who dyed his hair black and tanned his face with make up. He drew a mole on his cheek to look meaner and stuffed his boots full of tins cans and rags in an attempt to disguise his tiny stature. He was also an unlikely cult hero to the disaffected youth of Tucson in the early 1960's.

Justin Cox had always had a problem with managing his anger. A devastating life change, mixed with alcohol and the misguided belief a padelophile was living next door, drove him to murder a possibly innocent man named Samuel “Gadget” Connolly.

Bloody Murder 100 - The Michael Kanaan Story - Special Edition

November 26, 2018

The Michael Kanaan Story - Special Edition...

To celebrate our 100th Episode we’ve joined forces with Cambo Ford to bring you Bloody Murder on True Crime Island: The Michael Kanaan Story!

Michael Kanaan is an Australian triple murderer from Sydney. He was second in charge of the notorious gang DK’s Boys who controlled the cocaine trade in Kings Cross in the late 90’s and were involved in all manner of tomfoolery, their violent crimes included kneecapping, extortion and shooting cops.

Most of Sydney’s traditional criminal underworld worked under the radar. They avoided clashes with cops like the plague. DK’s boys were a new breed, all anger and firepower. They had balls made of bullets and they weren’t afraid to use them.

This is a classic tale of a modern Aussie crim who grew up aspiring to live like the gangsters in the American movies he watched repeatedly. As is usually the case, things did not turn out well for anyone involved!

The Vampire of Paris and Gangster Chow Hayes...

Nicolas Claux was a blood-drinking, cannibalistic hospital worker whose hobbies included desecrating graves and worshipping Satan. Nicknamed "The Vampire of Paris," this death-obsessed ghoul decided to kill someone, because…well it fit his image.

Chow Hayes was a violent, sadistic standover man, and murderer. In 1930, Chow became the first Australian criminal to be described by police as a "gangster". He would graduate from child thug to celebrity criminal by the age of 23 and wreaked havoc on the streets of Sydney for over five decades.

Bloody Murder 97 - Murderous Mary and the Vanishing of Paddy Moriarty

October 29, 2018

Murderous Mary and the Vanishing of Paddy Moriarty...

Described as a woman with "lovely russet hair, fine blue eyes, of normal build, with nice shapely hands" Mary Pearcey was a rather unconventional English woman who was convicted of murdering her lover's wife and child. She was sentenced to dangle on the end of a noose for her crimes. This is a patron request for Emily Kirkpatrick 

On a hot December afternoon in 2007, 70 year Paddy Moriarty and his dog went missing in Larimah in the Northern Territory. Foul play was suspected. Police rounded up the usual suspects, the entire population of this tiny desert town, all 11 of them, all elderly. What would emerge, was plenty of motive and a decade long feud over pies.
