Episode 276 LIVE: The Pennsylvania Torso Murders, aka The Murder Swamp Killings

Most everyone who knows something about American crime has heard of the Cleveland Torso Murders, a series of ghastly mutilation-style homicides that plagued the Kingsbury Run shanty town in the 1930s. But what is less well known is that right around the same time period, there were several very similar killings taking place not far away, in western Pennsylvania, where horrifically dismembered and occasionally burned bodies would turn up with alarming frequency, sometimes in abandoned boxcars, and sometimes in a patch of godforsaken land known as Murder Swamp or Hell’s Half Acre. While contemporary and modern investigators believe there may have been some connection between the Cleveland crimes and some of the Pennsylvania ones, others are not so sure, attributing the PA slayings to mafia-style killings by the Black Hand, or the results of warring factions of bootleggers in the days of Prohibition. Keep a barf bag handy for this one, because we’re about to go full-on grim gorefest on a blood-soaked episode 276.

Read the book Hell’s Wasteland, where I got most of the info about this case.

Episode 257 LIVE: Jack the Ripper

On this blood-drenched installment, Tom and Jenny are finally getting around to discussing the OG of unidentified serial killers, the mysterious madman known as Jack the Ripper. In 1888, amid the crushing poverty of the East End in London, a shadowy figure stalked prostitutes, slaughtering and mutilating at least five of them over a relatively brief period. The murderer was never caught, and over the ensuing century, countless theories about the identity of the killer have swirled around, some of them more fanciful than others. So join 13 O’Clock on a journey through the dim, cobblestone streets of Victorian London as we break down the horrific crimes and the numerous suspects that have come to light in the years since, on a grisly episode 257.

Episode 255 LIVE: The Coast Fiend

Between 1931 and 1938 in San Diego, California, several women and girls were brutally murdered in various ways; some of them were also raped and mutilated. Authorities at the time believed that at least four to six of the crimes may have been the work of one “degenerate,” who later came to be known as the Coast Fiend. Was a serial killer stalking the streets of San Diego in the 1930s, or were the grisly homicides completely unrelated? Delve into a forgotten series of murders and the possibility of an unapprehended murderer on a chilling episode 255.

Episode 250 LIVE: The West Mesa Bone Collector

On today’s horrifying installment, we’re delving into the case of a probable serial killer who has yet to be identified. In 2009, a woman walking her dog discovered a human bone on West Mesa, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Further investigation yielded even more human remains, and police realized that there were eleven murdered women who had been dumped in this same area. The women — most of whom came from high-risk groups — had all gone missing between 2003 and 2005, and authorities suspect that one serial killer, dubbed the West Mesa Bone Collector, is likely responsible. Head out to the deserts of the Southwest with Tom and Jenny as we break down this heartbreaking case on episode 250.

On this July 4th livestream, Tom and Jenny discuss two serial killers who have (so far) not been caught: the so-called Connecticut River Valley Killer, and the Bible Belt Strangler, thought to be responsible for a series popularly known as the Redhead Murders (due to the hair color of most of the victims).

Episode One Hundred Forty Seven: The Oklahoma Girl Scout Murders & the Murder of Marcia Trimble

On this heartbreaking installment, Tom and Jenny discuss two horrific murder cases from the 1970s, both involving Girl Scouts. First is the 1977 Oklahoma Girl Scout Murders, in which three little girls were brutally butchered while on a Girl Scout camping trip. The second is the 1975 killing of Marcia Trimble, who disappeared after setting out into her neighborhood to deliver Girl Scout cookies and was found dead more than a month later. Along the way, we go off on some of our inevitable digressions, especially about Girl Scout cookies, because of course we do. Lay in your stock of Thin Mints and bust out the tissues for another true crime two-fer on episode 147.

Episode One Hundred Thirty Six: The Colonial Parkway Murders and the Highway of Tears

On this installment of 13 O’Clock, Tom and Jenny are turning their attention to two horrifying cases of murders associated with highways and travel. On the first half, we’ll discuss the infamous Colonial Parkway murders, a chilling series of “lover’s lane” style killings that took place in a small area of Virginia in the late 1980s. Then we’ll talk about the heartbreaking saga of the Highway of Tears, a stretch of Highway 16 in British Columbia, Canada where numerous women and girls — many of them indigenous — have disappeared or been found murdered from the late 1960s right up until the present day. Stay off the roads and settle in for another true crime examination on episode 136.

Episode One Hundred Twenty Two: Serial killer Capital – London, Ontario 1959-1984

Back on the true crime tip on this installment of 13 O’Clock, Tom and Jenny are discussing the terrifying and fascinating run of murders that took place in London, Ontario, Canada between the years of 1959 and 1984. During this time period, the small Canadian metropolis was known as the Serial Killer Capital of the World, due to its unusually high number of serial homicides, most of them targeted at women and girls; not to mention the fact that London also played host to at least SIX serial killers at the time, and possibly many more who were never caught. What was it about this seemingly unassuming city that caused such a paroxysm of violence? Travel with Tom and Jenny to the blood-soaked streets of Murder City on this hair-raising episode 122.

Episode One Hundred Eighteen: The Wallace Case and the Murder of Nora Fuller

It’s another true crime double feature on this episode of 13 O’Clock, and we’re going back to the early days of the 20th century to discuss two bizarre, unsolved murders that are still the subject of much debate. First, the strange 1902 murder of Nora Fuller, who answered an ad for a babysitter and disappeared, only to be found dead weeks later under very mysterious circumstances. Then, we’ll discuss the infamous “Wallace Case” from 1931, called by many crime writers “the impossible murder” because of its frustrating and contradictory details that liken it to a fictional, locked-room mystery. Load up your pipe and put on your deerstalker hat as we investigate the cases comprising episode 118.

Returning to the unsolved mysteries and unsolved murders on this installment, Tom and Jenny are discussing another true crime two-top. First up, the mysterious case of the Circleville Writer, who wrote threatening letters to residents of a small Ohio town for years and may have been responsible for one murder and one attempted murder. Next, we’ll talk about the infamous case of The Doodler, an elusive and still unidentified serial killer who targeted gay men in San Francisco’s Castro district in the 1970s, luring them in by drawing their portraits.

Episode One-Hundred-Nine: The Zodiac Killer

On today’s cryptic and crime-ridden installment, Tom and Jenny are finally getting around to tackling America’s preeminent case of a serial killer who has never been caught: The Zodiac. Beginning in the mid to late 1960s, California was gripped in fear of the hooded gunman who largely targeted couples in their cars and ruthlessly shot them to death before sending taunting and coded letters to police and newspapers. Who was he, how many people did he actually kill, and will he ever be apprehended? Dig out your decoder rings and tune in for a discussion of the classic study in true crime that is episode 109.

Episode One-Hundred-Four: The Black Dahlia

It’s true crime time again on this grisly installment of 13 O’Clock, and this go-around, we’re tackling what is probably the best known unsolved murder case in American history: the horrifying slaying of the Black Dahlia. Back in 1947, dark-haired beauty Elizabeth Short was found sliced in half and drained of blood in an undeveloped Los Angeles neighborhood. Who committed such a vicious crime, and why? Theories and rumors have abounded in the more than seven decades since the murder occurred, and public fascination with the case shows no sign of abating. So listen in to our take on the notorious crime, along with an opening news story about a Florida cold case from 1994 — the brutal murder of Amy Gellert — and many, MANY of our famous digressions. Settle in for the long, blood-drenched saga of episode 104.

Episode ONE HUNDRED: True Crime Variety Special with Guests, Video, Kitties, and More!

Yes, we’ve reached an important milestone, folks: it’s 13 O’Clock’s big, bad ONE-HUNDREDTH episode! For months, we threw around different ideas about what to do for it, and in the end, we just decided to give our listeners more of what they seem to love most about the show: drunken rambling and horrific true crime stories. Plus, for those tuning in on YouTube, you will get to see videos of us in all our glory, plus little snippets of video of our kitties, and a 360 of our little office/studio, where the magic happens (the audio version doesn’t have video, obviously, but is still awesome and fun, so don’t feel left out)!

We also have special guests on the show: Shana, Eric, and zombie baby Demonika of BattleGlitta, who drank and laughed along with us as we delved into twenty of the most eerie and unpleasant true crime stories I could find. Creepiest disappearances! Horrible massacres of entire families! IT’S A MADHOUSE! Plus it’s like three hours long, so y’know…everyone take a potty break and gather all the snacks you’ll need before you settle in for the very long, vaguely incoherent, irreverent, and half-drunk installment of 13 O’Clock that IS episode 100. Hope you guys enjoy…we couldn’t do it without you! 🙂

Episode Ninety-Seven: The Double Initial Murders / Alphabet Killer

In the early 1970s, in Rochester, New York, three little girls were raped and murdered by a suspected serial killer who might have targeted them specifically because their first and last names started with the same letter. Years later, in Los Angeles, California, four young women with double initials also turned up dead; this killer was caught, but strangely, it didn’t seem to be the same man responsible for the earlier murders. Who was the Rochester Alphabet Killer, and did he have any relationship with Los Angeles Alphabet Killer Joseph Naso? All this, plus an update on the Golden State Killer being cleared of a 1978 double murder in Simi Valley. It’s a twisting tale of alphabetical terror on episode 97 of 13 O’Clock.

Episode Ninety-Three: The Family Murders

We’re going back to Australian true crime for episode 93, and boy, this one’s a doozy. Remember when we talked about the Wanda Beach murders and the disappearance of the Beaumont children back on episode 77? We kinda mentioned today’s topic on that show, because there were some suspects in common, but here’s the complete, horrible story of the so-called “Family Murders,” which took place in Adelaide, South Australia in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Seems there was an alleged cabal of wealthy, prominent older men in the city who would cruise around, pick up teenage boys, and do unspeakable things to them before dumping them by the side of the road. This one’s kinda rough, so y’know, have some cute kitten videos on standby for afterward. Also, we’re covering a recent news story whereby a suspect in a Washington State double murder case from 1987 has been identified using the same genealogy technique used to capture the Golden State Killer. It’s true crime from Down Under and Up Over (I guess…?) on a grim and gruesome episode 93.

Episode Ninety-One: The Long Island Serial Killer

It’s a serial killer extravaganza on this horrific installment! Tom and Jenny are looking into a suspected and infamous serial killer case that is still ongoing. In December of 2010, while looking for a missing person in Long Island, New York, police stumbled across four bodies in burlap sacks, and a few months later, discovered six more nearby. The unknown perpetrator known as the Long Island Serial Killer, the Gilgo Beach Killer, or the Craigslist Ripper is thought to be responsible for between ten to sixteen murders in and around Long Island between the years of 1996 to 2010, and may still be operating today. Tune in as we discuss what is known about the case so far, and also have a listen to our news segment, in which we not only give the latest updates on recently apprehended Golden State Killer suspect Joseph DeAngelo, but also talk a little bit about recently deceased British serial killer Dennis Nilsen, as well as have a brief discussion about the weirdly specific jobs that serial killers seem attracted to. Lock your doors and windows as 13 O’Clock tries to catch a killer on episode 91.

Episode Eighty-Eight: Serial Killers Jack the Stripper and Bible John

NOTE: We’re all about the digressions again this episode, so if you just want the serial killer stuff, skip ahead to about twenty minutes in. I’m telling you right here, so don’t complain, hahaha.

It’s true crime time again on this installment of 13 O’Clock, and this go-around we’re discussing two of Britain’s most infamous serial killers who were never caught. First up is the elusive Jack the Stripper, responsible for several murders of prostitutes in London spanning the years from 1959 to 1965. Then we’ll be talking about the mysterious Bible John, who murdered at least three women in Glasgow in 1968 and 1969 after meeting them at one particular dance hall, but who may be tied in to one of Scotland’s most prolific serial killers. All this, plus some recent news stories about exploding hams, getting tasered for Jesus, and attic-dwelling ex-boyfriends. Get ready to investigate with Tom and Jenny on a gore-soaked episode 88.

Episode Seventy-Seven: Wanda Beach Murders and the Beaumont Children, Plus Florida Man Strikes Again

It’s another true crime double feature on 13 O’Clock, and we’re featuring two infamous crimes from 1960s Australia. First up, the horrific slayings of Marianne Schmidt and Christine Sharrock on Wanda Beach in 1965, and then the mysterious disappearance and probable murder of the Beaumont children from 1966. Before that, our news segment focuses on a typical “Florida Man” crime, about a man who was into child porn and then got into even bigger trouble trying to hire a hit man. It’s a special kind of stupid, trust me. So put on your deerstalker hats and get ready to investigate some unsolved crimes with Tom and Jenny on a bloody and tragic episode 77.

Episode Seventy-Four: Keddie and Bear Brook Murders, Plus Werewolf Killer

*In case you didn’t get the memo, this episode is just Jenny…Tom had a family emergency and had to go out of state. He should be back for episode 75.*

In 1981, four people were brutally slain in cabin 28 at the Keddie Resort in California. And in 1985 and 2000, the bodies of four unidentified females were discovered in 55-gallon drums in Allenstown, New Hampshire. On this grisly episode of 13 O’Clock, Jenny is discussing two infamous crimes: the Keddie Murders and the Bear Brook Murders, the first of which is still officially unsolved, but the second of which has had some interesting developments in the past two years. On the News segment, she’ll also be talking about Russia’s infamous “Werewolf” serial killer, who has recently gone on trial again for confessing to many, many more murders than it was originally thought he committed (which was already a lot). Yikes. Lock your doors and windows and tune in for a horrifying episode 74.

Episode Seventy-One: Hinterkaifeck Farm and the St. Aubin Street Massacre

What better time than the day after Christmas to reflect on the year that has passed and look forward to what will hopefully be a bright new year? Or, if you’re 13 O’Clock, you spend the day after Christmas talking about two of the grisliest and weirdest unsolved axe murders of the 20th century. Boxing Day, Axing Day, close enough. We all celebrate in our own ways, after all. On this blood-soaked episode, Tom and Jenny are discussing the massacre of the Gruber family at the infamous Hinterkaifeck Farm in Germany in 1922, as well as the bizarre occult-style slaying of the Benny Evangelist family in Detroit in 1929. Keep your head about you as we swing the blade of episode 71 right into your eager ear-holes.

Episode Sixty-Eight: The Smiley Face Murder Theory

Ever since the late 1990s, there have been a bunch of strange disappearances and deaths of college-age white men that have taken place in 11 different states in the northern half of the U.S. In almost all cases, when the bodies are eventually found, the deaths are ruled as accidental drownings. But two investigators, Kevin Gannon and Anthony Duarte, believe that there might be a serial killer, or even a gang of serial killers, responsible for the deaths of these young men. On this episode, Tom and Jenny return to the true crime well and examine the mysterious Smiley Face Murder Theory and weigh the evidence on both sides: were these men murdered by a psycho or psychos? Or did they just accidentally drown after drinking too much? Put on a happy face and settle in for the criminally fascinating episode 68.

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.

Also, if you have a TRUE creepy story that happened to you or someone you know (it doesn’t have to be paranormal, just scary), please email it to me at gravecake@gmail.com and we might feature it on our special Halloween episode!

Episode Forty-Five: Villisca and the Unsolved Axe Murders of the 1910s

The horrifying massacre that took place in Villisca, Iowa in 1912 is among the creepiest mass murders in American history. Eight people — a couple with four children and two young girls who were staying the night — were brutally slaughtered with an axe while they slept, for seemingly no reason whatsoever. The crime was never solved, and what’s worse, that dreadful slaying might not have been the only one. Some researchers point out that there was a disturbing trend of gruesome axe murders going on in the Midwest from the period of 1911 through 1914, and it’s possible that some of these crimes were perpetrated by the same person. On this episode of 13 O’Clock, Tom and Jenny return to the most terrifying corners of the true crime genre to take a look at the infamous Villisca Axe Murders, as well as the disturbing series of similar crimes that terrorized the American heartland in the early twentieth century.

Episode Thirty-Two: Horror In Room 1046 – The Unsolved Murder of Roland T. Owen

In January of 1935, a young man checked into a hotel in Kansas City under the pseudonym Roland T. Owen, with only a hairbrush, a comb, and a tube of toothpaste to his name. A couple of days later, he was found naked, bound and obviously tortured in his blood-splashed room. Who was this murdered man with the fake name? Why was he constantly sitting in the dark? Who was the mysterious “Don” he talked to on the phone? Why was he running down the street clad only in pants and an undershirt? Who anonymously paid for his funeral and a bouquet of roses? Who sent cryptic typed letters to his mother months after his death?

Everyone loves an unsolved murder, and the mystery of room 1046 is one of the eeriest unsolved crimes in American history. On this episode, Tom and Jenny give a timeline of the bizarre events leading up to the man’s death, and speculate as to what might have befallen the doomed occupant of the Hotel President.

Episode Eight: The Original Night Stalker

Most people have heard of Richard Ramirez, the infamous serial killer known as the Night Stalker. But what many people don’t know is that a decade before Ramirez commenced his reign of terror, a much more brutal and prolific serial killer and rapist stalked the upper-middle-class neighborhoods of California, from Sacramento to Irvine. This man, known alternately as the East Area Rapist, the Golden State Killer, the Diamond Knot Killer, or the Original Night Stalker, has never been apprehended, and may still be on the loose. On this episode, Tom and Jenny discuss his horrific crimes and speculate as to why he was never caught. 2016, in fact, marks the 40th anniversary of the Original Night Stalker’s first known crime, and the FBI have redoubled their efforts to track the guy down, offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to his capture and conviction.

Episode Five: Eerie Espionage – Numbers Stations, Somerton Man, Isdal Woman

Everybody loves suave superspy James Bond, but sometimes international espionage can be a hell of a lot less glamorous, and even downright disturbing. On this spooky spy-themed episode, Tom and Jenny discuss the creepy weirdness of numbers stations, plus the intensely fucked-up and mysterious unsolved murders of probable secret agents The Somerton Man (aka the Tamam Shud case) and The Isdal Woman.
