Bloody Murder - A True Crime Podcast

92 - The Sinister Minister and The Mad Scientist

September 24, 2018

The Sinister Minister and The Mad Scientist...

Pennsylvania Pastor AB Schirmer’s wives had an unfortunate habit of dying suddenly in - rather ridiculous circumstances. Due to his stature, nobody thought to be suspicious of their deaths.  But after the suicide of his mistress Cindy Musante’s husband, everything started to come undone for the Sinister Minister.

In Tasmania in 1983, Rory Jack Thompson strangled his ex-wife. He then cut her up into 91 pieces and flushed her down the toilet. Was this spectrum-surfing sociopath, this professor of fluid dynamics, just another man who horrifically murdered an ex-partner he couldn't control? Or is there more to his story?

Bloody Murder Scents are here!

The perfume geniuses at Sucreabeille have created special Bloody Murder scents to go along with getting murdery. Andrea Fender sent us a whole box of them and I am in love with them all! They are so delicious! The Bloody Murder range features 4 different scents inspired by the podcast.

Lady Swears: is my personal favourite! It'll be sure to scare all the “old fashioned people” away. Lady Swears is a mixture of bourbon and sweeter notes - so you can swear like a lady while plotting your sweet revenge. It's the perfect scent to express yourself during a work meeting, in the car when someone cuts you off, or when someone tells you to "smile"..

Captain Moonlite: smells like your favorite glass of really good bourbon. You'll have the scent of the handsome bushranger by your side as you try to throw the coppers off of your trail.

Vodka And Swearing: is a fantastic scent with Juniper Sage and Lemongrass Mojito in the mix. Pull up a chair, fluff up your dirty pillows, put on some Vodka and Swearing and partake in your favorite indulgence.

Strawberry Milkshake: This blood red perfume has a deceptively sweet scent. Whether you're lounging by the pool listening to your favorite podcast or plotting to murder your millionaire spouse, Strawberry Milkshake will be sure to fool all around you into thinking there is no way you could be the suspect.

This range is available in perfume, whipped soap and beard oil. And features our Bloody murder logo.
