Episode Sixty-One: Twins of Terror – June & Jennifer Gibbons, Ursula & Sabina Eriksson

Twins…they’re nature’s clones! Who among us twinless folk hasn’t wondered what it would be like to have an almost exact copy of ourselves living in our very homes? Sounds pretty neat until you hear about creepy shit like twinnery gone drastically awry, as in the two cases we’re discussing today. June and Jennifer Gibbons, known as “The Silent Twins,” would only speak to each other in a bizarre language no one else understood, and apparently had some weird symbiosis thing going on where one had to die so the other could live a normal life. Then there’s Sabina and Ursula Eriksson, twins who made headlines around the world when they suddenly flipped out at the same time and went merrily playing about in traffic, among many other terrifying shenanigans. Listen and reflect upon this double dose of disturbing twin-based weirdness…it’s 13 O’Clock, episode 61.

Episode Sixty: The Cleveland Torso Murders

It’s true crime time again on the show, kids, and today we’re discussing a particularly gruesome and infamous series of unsolved murders that also makes an appearance in Jenny’s brand new book, The Faceless Villain. The Cleveland Torso Murders were exactly what they claim on the tin: they happened in Cleveland in the 1930s, and most of the victims were found in varying states of grisly dismemberment. Many of the victims were never even identified, and the killer never was either, so hopefully that makes you sleep better at night. Gird your loins or other appropriate anatomy, because this one’s a tad icky, and if you’re watching on YouTube, I’ll slap a GROSS PHOTO WARNING right down here. Try to keep all your limbs attached as you settle in for episode 60 of 13 O’Clock.

Episode Fifty-Nine: A Haunting in Georgia – Wyrick House and Mr. Gordy

It’s been a while since we’ve done one of our reviews of A Haunting episodes, so we decided to go back to the beginning and delve into the case behind one of the pilot episodes, “A Haunting in Georgia” (which was also the basis for the horror movie A Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia). The Wyrick family begin to experience paranormal activity in their new home in Ellerslie, Georgia, mostly centering around their daughter Heidi seeing a friendly old man in the backyard who she called Mr. Gordy, as well as another man with blood on his shirt that she called Con. Later on, things got a bit more sinister with the arrival of a creepy hooded figure who seemed to wish the family harm. On this episode, Tom and Jenny talk about the episode of A Haunting as well as the witness accounts of the real case, and how it was (poorly) adapted to the big screen. Start your October off right with the ghostly, haunted 59th installment of 13 O’Clock.

Episode Fifty-Eight: Corpsewood Manor and the Wineville Chicken Coop Murders

To celebrate the upcoming release of Jenny’s new true crime book, The Faceless Villain, we decided to devote episode 58 to a double feature of some super creepy crime cases (both of which were suggested by fans)! First up, the terrifying murder of Dr. Charles Scudder and Joseph Odom at their castle in the woods, Corpsewood Manor; and second, the bizarre kidnapping/murder case on which the 2008 movie Changeling was based: the so-called Wineville Chicken Coop Murders. Get your true crime on with the latest gruesome installment of 13 O’Clock, and also treat yourself to a slice of virtual cake because it’s Jenny’s birthday today (September 26th)!
