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.
