The Babysitter Killers

The innocent babysitter having to fend for herself and fight off or flee from a murderer in a house, either her own or the unfamiliar home of a family she works for, is a popular urban legend and the plot to many a teen slasher movie or campfire story… But sadly, as with most urban legends, it is a tale that does have some basis in reality, as we will see in the two cases covered in today’s episode.

The Crimes of David Copenhefer

Digital forensics is an integral part of crime scene investigations. Its study includes any information that is stored in binary form – smartphones, tablets, smartwatches, and more digital devices can all contain useful information for a criminal investigation. Clearly, digital forensics has come a long way from back in the eighties, when police didn’t know how to handle computers, let alone the data stored on them… but it had to learn how to walk before it could run.

Content Warnings: abduction, ransom, descriptions of fatal gunshot wounds, murder, mentions of child pornography.

Murderous Ministers Pt. 3

In the Christian Bible, the last five of the Ten Commandments are, “Thou shalt not kill; Thou shalt not commit adultery; Thou shalt not steal; Thou shall not bear false witness; Thou shall not covet.” For far too many religious leaders, things go downhill when they break the tenth commandment by coveting a female member of their church – and, all too frequently, this leads to adultery. 

Content Warnings: adultery, murder, abuse of power, religious trauma

Cold Season 3: The Search for Sheree

Sheree Warren left her job in Salt Lake City on a mild October evening in 1985.
She told a coworker she was headed to meet her estranged husband, Charles
Warren, at a car dealership. But she never made it, Sheree vanished. When her
car mysteriously surfaced weeks later, hundreds of miles away in Las Vegas, no
one could say how it got there.


When a young mother disappears under unexplained circumstances, police
always turn suspicious eyes toward her husband. And although there was
distrust around Charles Warren, he wasn’t the only suspect when Sheree went
missing. She also had a boyfriend, a former cop named Cary Hartmann, who
lived a sinister double life.


Season three follows two suspects– men who both raised suspicion for
investigators. But with two strong persons of interest with competing facts and
evidence, it muddied the murder investigation. This season, host Dave Cawley,
digs into the lives of these two men, the details of the case, and examines the
intersections between domestic abuse and sexual violence. The COLD team
seeks to answer the question: what really happened to Sheree Warren?
Hey Prime Members, listen to the Amazon Music exclusive podcast, COLD, in

Shannon Melendi

In the absence of many forensic tools yet to be invented, 18th-century investigators had their work cut out for them. This was especially true in murder cases where the victim’s body was never found. These are called bodiless murders or no-body cases. In the past, no-body cases made it nearly impossible to convict anyone of murder—what if the “victim” actually reappeared alive and well, after their accused murderer had been executed? That exact scenario, where the victim came “back to life,” happened at least two times. There have been an estimated 500 trials for no-body cases in the United States as of 2020. Of those 500 trials, approximately 40 cases have been solved in 15 states. On September 19th, 2005, the state of Georgia solved its first no-body case when it convicted the murderer of 19-year-old Shannon Melendi.

Missing Moms

According to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NAMUS), 600,000 people go missing every year. Thankfully, many of these children, women and men return home shortly afterward, but tens of thousands of individuals stay missing for over a year, with few – if any – leads to go on. Approximately 4,500 unidentified remains are found each year, as well. Yet, despite the serious nature of these cases of missing and unidentified persons, there are still people who will fake kidnappings and perpetrate hoaxes for their own gains on a regular basis – often at the expense of others.

Content Warnings: abductions & missing persons, unsolved cases, hoaxes, self-harm, adultery, racism.

Money Can’t Keep You Safe

For people who don’t come from money, wealthy people are an enigma. It’s easy to overlook the fact that wealthy people have problems, sometimes akin to our own issues. But, the victims in today’s cases highlight that no matter how much money someone has, you’re not always safe.

Christopher Gattis

You would never expect hell to be in the Appalachian mountains of Big Stone Gap, Virginia—and yet—that is exactly how the inmates of Wallens Ridge State Prison describe it. This “supermax” prison houses up to 1,200 of the United States’ most dangerous male criminals. When it first opened, Wallens Ridge was renowned for the violence it showed its inmates. Warning shots, rubber pellets, and stun guns were frequently used to scare and control their population. Christopher Gattis is one of those inmates. On Thanksgiving Day of 2017, Christopher shot and murdered his wife, stepdaughter, and stepdaughter’s boyfriend. Now, he is serving a life sentence at Wallens Ridge State Prison.

Content Warnings: familial murder, abusive prison conditions

The Sherry Murders

Romance scams, or “lonely hearts” scams, are one of the oldest swindles in the book. They work when a fraudster gains the affection of a victim, usually in a long-distance relationship. Once the scammer establishes trust, they will request money or financial information from their victim. The advent of the internet and dating sites has made lonely hearts scams more popular and harmful than ever. Join us for today’s episode to discover how, through a complex web of lies and a brigade of greedy, immoral people, one particular lonely heart scam would end in the cold-blooded murders of Judge Vincent Sherry and his wife, Margaret Sherry.

Terri Williams X UpStairs Lounge

In today’s episode, we will talk about murdered members of the LGBTQIA community. Every attempt has been made to be culturally sensitive and to use the correct terminology. Any errors are completely unintentional. Each member of my team, myself included, considers themselves to be an advocate for the LGBTQIA community, and it is our fervent hope that we have treated these individuals with the dignity and respect they deserve.

We are covering the murder of Terri Williams and the UpStairs Lounge fire that claimed 32 lives.

Unfortunately, our LGBTQIA+ friends still need allies to help them defend against discrimination. Even today, many cis-gendered, heterosexual individuals believe that AIDS is a punishment from God for being gay. Violence against transgenders is still extremely high, particularly transgenders of color. For more information about how to be an ally, visit glaad.org For information about the dangers this community faces, please visit the Human Rights Campaign.

Wondery Presents: The Execution of Bonny Lee Bakley

On May 4, 2001, Bonny Lee Bakley was found fatally shot in a car on a dark North Hollywood street. The prime suspect was her husband, famed actor Robert Blake. But Bonny, a longtime con artist, had plenty of enemies. She left behind a trail of men she’d scammed, and she had a volatile relationship with Christian Brando, the troubled son of movie star Marlon Brando.
Not since the O.J. Simpson case had the eyes of the nation been so fixated on a homicide. The search for Bonny’s killer took detectives on an eleven-month odyssey across the country and through Hollywood’s underbelly of hustlers, drug addicts, and would-be hitmen. It would be the most expensive murder investigation in LAPD history to date.
This is the story of Robert and Bonny’s toxic relationship, her shocking murder, and his chaotic trial. Did actor Robert Blake kill his wife? Or was the murder someone else’s vendetta?
From Wondery, and the team behind the hit series Hollywood & Crime (The Dating Game Killer, The Wonderland Murders, Death of Starlet) comes a six-part series about love, obsession and fame gone wrong. Co-hosted by Tracy Pattin and Josh Lucas.

Introducing: The Fall Line Podcast

This is an excerpt from The Fall Line Podcast’s two-part series on the unsolved murder of Moses Williams Junior. It’s from Episode One: Fat Man 

On Super Bowl Sunday, 2012, a gunshot rang out across the darkened streets of  Aiken, SC–and 19-year-old Moses “Fat Man” Williams Jr., a popular former high-school football star, slumped in the driver’s seat of his car.Though his girlfriend and her sister were no more than a hundred feet away, and he was parked in a busy neighborhood, no one could—or would—say who’d shot the young father, who worked seven days a week to support his family. But his mother, Timica James, was determined to find out.

Wondery Presents: Blood Ties Season 3 – “Strange Days

Our family members are not always who we think. When Eleonore Richland exposed her father’s dark
legacy, she vowed to clean up the family business – and hired her half-brother, Santino Reyes, to help her do it. But old habits die hard.

In the shocking new third season, Eleonore reckons with what her father always taught her growing up: medicine is a bloody business. From Wondery, the makers of “The Shrink Next Door” and “Dr. Death,” Blood Ties stars Gillian Jacobs (Community, Love), Christian Navarro(13 Reasons Why), and Peter Stormare. Listen to all six episodes ad-free on Wondery+ on May 9.

Murder & Movies

Although true crime has experienced a huge renaissance over the last several years, movies based on true crimes have been popular for decades. In the 1930s, many movies were made, based on prominent gangsters of the time, such as Al Capone, and Ma Barker. However, in the mid-30s, when the Hays Code was enforced, much of the drama was watered down. It wasn’t until the 1960s that violence became prevalent on the screen, and well-known movies based on true crime were made, such as In Cold Blood and Bonnie and Clyde. Of course, in the 1970s and 1980s, made-for-TV movies based on true stories became popular. Movies typically take some liberties about the crimes and often have to leave out important details, to avoid a movie that’s several hours long.

Juvenile Offenders

Welcome back to the TCFC podcast. In the United States, dating back to the Thirteen Colonies, approximately 364 juveniles have been executed by individual colonies, states, or the federal government, for crimes they were found guilty of committing. 22 individuals were executed between 1976 and 2005, for crimes committed when they were juveniles. In 1976, the Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty, and in 2005, they ruled that juveniles could not be sentenced to death, as it was a violation of the 8th Amendment (1).

Ebony & Deanna: 9-1-1 Domestic Violence

In Today’s episode, you will hear actual 911 calls. We advise extreme caution while listening. If you are a victim of domestic abuse, please reach out to someone for help. Please call the national domestic abuse hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE. That’s 1-800-799-7233 or go to thehotline.org to chat with someone online.

Unfortunately, we discuss domestic violence all too often on this show. One reason is that there are 20 people per minute who are abused by an intimate partner in the United States. This equates to more than 10 million men and women annually. 15 percent of all violent crimes are due to intimate partner violence. There are 20,000 calls made to domestic call centers each day in the United States (1). Many times, a victim of this form of abuse calls 911, in the hopes officers will be able to respond in time. The International Association of Chiefs of Police has created guidelines on how law enforcement agencies should respond to calls of domestic violence, and how 911 telecommunication operators should respond (2). Most of the time, officers are able to respond quickly and effectively to these calls, but sadly, there are times that the violence plays out on the 911 call, with fatal consequences.

Double Trouble

Twins fascinate us, especially when they are identical. Twins have been studied for many years, both psychologically and physiologically. The most memorable and horrific of these studies was conducted by Josef Mengele, the Nazi “Angel of Death” at the Auschwitz Death Camp. Other studies have followed sets of twins from birth into adulthood. Many of these studies followed identical twins who were separated at birth and raised apart, to try to determine if a person’s personality traits were a result of nature versus nurture. In many cases, it is definitely nature. We could devote an entire podcast to the fascinating psychology of twins, but we are going to focus on twins who murder together.

Wondery Presents: Killer Psyche


What causes people to become killers? KILLER PSYCHE is a true-crime podcast from
Wondery that covers high-profile cases that shocked the world. Host Candice Delong
uses her experience as a clinical psychiatric nurse and FBI Criminal Profiler to dissect
the motivations and behaviors of the most terrifying criminals in history. In a recent
episode, Candice explores the case of Pedro Rodrigues Filho, also known as The
Brazilian Dexter. Rodrigues went on to murder, by his count, more than 100 people —
most of them while he was behind bars. To many, he was a hero — a vigilante seeking
justice for victims. But to others, he was just a cold-blooded murderer. This is just a
preview of Killer Psyche, but you can listen to the full episode at

True Crime Convos on Spotify Greenroom: Mark Redwine

Mark Redwine is a 59-year-old man from Colorado who was convicted in October 2021 for the murder of his 13-year-old son, Dylan Redwine, in November 2012.

After flying to his father’s home for a court-ordered visit, Dylan sent several text messages to his mother and his friends before suddenly going silent on the night of November 18, 2012. It was the last time anyone would hear from him.

Mark Redwine contacted Dylan’s mother to ask if he’d heard from their son, which sparked a missing person case that would continue for the next several months. Throughout several interviews during this time, Redwine would have conflicting stories about Dylan in the hours leading up to his disappearance, sparking red flags with investigators.

In June of 2013, partial remains that were later confirmed to belong to Dylan were discovered not far from Redwine’s home. It wasn’t until 2015, however, that Dylan’s skull would be discovered by a pair of hikers, nearly five miles away from where the original remains had been found. The skull showed evidence of violence, and in 2017, Mark Redwine was arrested for Dylan’s murder.

During the lengthy trial process, which included years of delays due to, among other things, a global health crisis, the prosecution would go on to say that Redwine murdered Dylan in a fit of rage after his son confronted him about some compromising photos he’d found of Redwine, including him wearing women’s clothing, wearing a diaper, and consuming feces. 

Redwine was found guilty of second-degree murder and child abuse and sentenced to 48 years in prison.

Foster Chance. The 48-year-old man from Texas went missing in March of 2021. Devastated

Lois & Betty

Since 1976, when the death penalty was reinstated in the United States, seventeen women have been executed. The two women discussed in today’s episode have the distinction of being the oldest women executed in the country. The women had far different motives for murder, and both women enlisted family members to assist them with their deeds. In this episode, we share two cases: Lois Nadean Smith & Betty Lou Beets.

Wondery Presents: Operator

During the 1-900 number craze of the Nineties, one company provided the vast
majority of phone sex. American Telnet was an empire founded by the man who
called himself “The Telephone Pimp.” He ran the company “like General Motors”
and got filthy rich doing it. But for the (mostly) women who answered the calls
and delivered fantasies 24-7, it was a different story. The powerful stigma against
sex work was always lurking just beneath the surface until it threatened to tear
apart the whole company. Hosted by Tina Horn (Why Are People Into That?),
OPERATOR is an eight-part series about big ambitions, Shakespearean-level
corporate backstabbing, men and women at the cutting edge of a technological
revolution…and on the front lines of a sexual one.

Listen to Operator now! http://wondery.fm/OP_TCFCP

Crime Of The Century

In June 1971, President Richard Nixon declared a war on drugs. The “war” increased the size, as well as the presence of federal drug control agencies. Nixon was also responsible for mandatory sentencing for drug offenses, and no-knock warrants. One of President Nixon’s top aides later said that the planning for the war on drugs began during the 1968 campaign when Nixon believed he had two “enemies,” the anti-establishment left and black people. The President couldn’t single out these two elements of society, but he could associate hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and let the media demonize these two groups. The President even made marijuana a Schedule One drug, the most restrictive class of drugs, which includes heroin. Marijuana was supposed to be reviewed by a special commission, which recommended decriminalization of it in 1972. The President refused to budge. Between 1973 and 1977, eleven states decriminalized it, and in October 1977, a Senate Judiciary Committee voted to decriminalize possession of up to an ounce of marijuana for personal use. However, parents became concerned about marijuana use, and with Ronald Reagan’s election as President, the drug war opened up full throttle.

Halloween Bonus Episode 2021

Halloween is steeped in lore, legend, and history. From its beginnings in Samhain (Saa-wn), to the subsequent adoption by the Catholic Church of November 1st as All Saints’ Day, Halloween has long been considered the day when the veil between the living and the dead was lifted. In Colonial America, the Puritans did not celebrate Halloween, but further south, in Maryland, the telling of ghost stories became commonplace. In the 1800s as more Irish immigrants settled in America, trick-or-treating was adopted, along with dressing up in costumes, and the creation of jack-o-lantern (1). Slasher films, starting with Black Christmas, became popular in 1974, coincidentally in the same year, Ronald Clark O’Bryan gave his son candy laced with cyanide. He was called the man who ruined Halloween, and to this day, parents still check candy to try to detect tampering. Ok on to the show…

An Exorcism

In 2014, Pope Francis and the Vatican formally recognized the International Association of Exorcists, which had 250 exorcists in 250 countries (3). Of course, Protestants also carry out exorcisms, but according to Dr. Andrew Chestnut of Virginia Commonwealth University, the Catholic rites are more formal, whereas Protestant exorcisms are often more theatrical. Protestant exorcists will frequently interview the possessed, to try to determine which demon possesses them (4). Unfortunately, there are dozens of non-sanctioned exorcisms that occur in small, cult-like religions, and some that occur without any church affiliation at all. Many of these rituals leave their victims injured or dead. Sadly, a large number of these victims are children (5).

Wondery Presents: Shadow of Truth

It’s one of the most haunting murder cases you’ll ever hear about, and it takes place in a small town in Israel. Tair Rada was only 13-years-old when her body was found inside a locked bathroom stall. She was viciously murdered during a school day, and yet no one saw or heard a thing. The police arrested the janitor, Roman Zadorov, and he eventually confessed, but this was far from being the end of it. Based on the hit true-crime series from Netflix, the podcast “Shadow of Truth” will take you on a journey into one of the wildest and most contested murder cases in the history of Israel, as it reaches its final resolution, 15 years after it all started.

Murder by Vehicle

Murder by vehicle occurs in small numbers every year. These are often tracked as a vehicle accidents, so good numbers are not available for how many people are killed this way each year. Many of the cases are the end result of a domestic argument or dispute, or as the result of inebriation (1,2). It appears this is predominantly a female-chosen method for murder. The two cases discussed today were apparently done in a heat of passion.

Deadly Jealousy

In the United States, it is believed nearly 10 million people experience domestic abuse every year. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, about 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner. Victims are often isolated by their partners, leaving them disconnected from their family and friends. Victims are often ashamed of the abuse and are afraid of their abusers.

If you, or a loved one, are the victim of domestic violence, please call 1-800-799-SAFE (7233). The free phone, 24-hour National Domestic Abuse Helpline in the UK is 0808 2000 247

Welcome back to the TCFC podcast. It is common knowledge that children who are abused or maltreated frequently have long-lasting effects as a result of the trauma they suffered. There are many physical, psychological, behavioral, and even societal implications of child abuse. The immediate result of child abuse is usually physical, both in terms of their wounds, but also potential brain damage from violent abuse. Mistreatment can lead to stunted brain growth, which can then lead to psychological issues immediately, or later in life. However, many studies have found that child abuse has been linked to a higher rate of diseases such as diabetes, arthritis, back problems, vision problems, and more (40). 

Psychological issues that stem from child abuse include poor cognitive skills, depression, low self-esteem, and attachment issues. Children who grew up in these situations have a higher prevalence of suicide attempts than those who did not. Additionally, those adults who do suffer from major depression have lower positive outcomes with antidepressants. Children of abuse are more likely to develop antisocial tendencies, which can lead to criminal behavior (40). 

Other studies show “that abused or neglected children are more likely to engage in sexual risk-taking as they reach adolescence” including a higher number of sexual partners and having sex in exchange for money or other material items. There is a higher prevalence of chemical dependency in adults who were maltreated as a child, particularly alcoholism. Of course, children of abuse are also more likely to also abuse their own children, although these numbers are not as high as previously believed. However, a study from the early 2010s showed that 26% of inmates incarcerated for murder had been subjected to child abuse, and an additional study showed that of 43 death row inmates, 36 had been sexually or physically abused, 37 were neglected, and 31 witnessed domestic violence growing up (40, 41). 

Despite the large numbers of violent offenders who were abused as children, the number of child abuse victims who do not resort to violence as adults is far greater – these children had broken the cycle of abuse (40, 41). Unfortunately, today’s perpetrator was not able to break the cycle of violence, destroying a family as a result. Okay…onto the show.
