Candace Rough Surface

In many years past, Native American women were told to stuff dirt inside themselves if they were captured by the military, in the hopes the men would just kill them…and not defile them…A sobering statistic provided by IndianLaw.org “More than 4 in 5 American Indian and Alaska Native women have experienced violence, and more than 1 in 2 have experienced sexual violence”. I’m afraid that these numbers aren’t even accurate, as we know, these crimes often go unreported by the victims and local/national media. Candi Rough Surface is not just another victim.

Ron Lafferty

On the evening of July 24th, 1984, Brenda Lafferty and her daughter, Erica were brutally murdered in their little apartment in a small suburb of Salt Lake City called American Fork, Utah. The men that attacked Brenda and her child were on a mission. One of the attackers, Ron Lafferty, claimed God sent him on this mission to ‘remove’ Brenda and several others to right the wrongs he felt were committed against him.

She’s the only woman on the homicide squad, and a skilled chameleon: undercover cop in vice stings, crime-scene commander, patient confidante of killers. A master interrogator, she invokes her personal experience – and deepest griefs — as a tool to elicit confessions. When a young woman’s body is found at a trash-sorting plant, Trapp learns the murder may be linked to the disappearance of three other women in nearby Santa Ana. Trapp embarks on a dark journey that brings her face to face with a man who takes “a little piece of her soul.” Listen now at wondery.fm/DTfanclub

Marvallous Keene – Bonus Episode

Dubbed the “Christmas Killings”, the murder rampage claimed the lives of six innocent victims, while injuring two more. What makes this story more tragic is that the killings, while completely random and senseless, were committed by a 19-year old named Marvallous Keene and three members of his teenage gang who called themselves the Downtown Posse.

The Southside Strangler

In the late ’80s through the early ’90s, Timothy Wilson Spencer was mainly known to the world as The Southside Strangler. However, it was actually the groundbreaking DNA evidence that was used in connection to this case that makes it such an important and relevant case to this day. The same DNA evidence that easily connected Timothy Spencer to each of his cold-blooded murders was the same that was used, for the first time in United States history, to free David Vasquez, an innocent man, from a life sentence in prison for a horrific crime he didn’t commit.

Ronald Gene Simmons

When you think of mass murder, you often associate the act with school shootings, workers “going postal”, or domestic acts of terrorism. What you don’t often think about, is family. . The deadliest case of familial mass murder in the United States took place in the last place anyone would think of… in a sleepy hamlet in Arkansas. From the outside, he looked to be the perfect father, but the secrets revealed following the aftermath of this heinous crime shocked the state and the nation.
