  • Andres Shirm spent his entire childhood terrified of a man his family thought was responsible for his mother - Jennifer Lynn Shirm's disappearance. Even the sight of the man’s photo sent Andy into full-on panic attacks.

    Although he'd eventually learn that his mother hadn't just been taken - she'd been murdered, it wouldn't be until decades later that he'd learn that the man he'd been afraid of all those years, hadn’t been his mother's murderer at all.

    Over the years, police identified several suspects in Jennifer's murder investigation - even making two arrests.

    Yet still, close to 40 years later, the question still remains, "Who killed Jennifer?"

  • In 2016, April 16th was the first perfect day of spring in rural Muskegon County Michigan.

    By 9:00 that Saturday morning, it was 62 degrees and already the warmest day of the season by far. And 53-year-old Dawn Schmidt was among those taking advantage of these glorious conditions.

    Making herself a steaming cup of morning coffee, she carried it outside to her back deck and sipped away, staring at the forest, and enjoying the refreshing sunshine.

    But then…she heard something strange.

  • Our homes are more than just physical structures; they’re our sanctuaries, providing a safe refuge from the outside world.

    But imagine if someone had meticulously written a 250-page manifesto, obsessively determined to breach that sanctuary? Someone so consumed with rage over a perceived wrongdoing from years earlier, that deadbolts and alarms would do nothing to stop him from carrying out his mission to exact revenge.

  • As we wrap up another incredible year, I wanted to take a moment to express my heartfelt appreciation to all our listeners, for joining us this year as we covered some pretty unbelievable cases.

    To wrap up 2023, we wanted to also bring you in on some other chilling cases, you may have never heard about. So we asked some of our closest podcast friends, to tell us about one of the cases they covered this year, that stood out the most to them.

  • On the cold spring morning of April 19, 2020, a woman staggered from the woods outside Portapique Nova Scotia. Her bare feet were blackened from running through the woods, and she was covered in scrapes and bruises.

    She hammered on the door of a neighbor, who let her inside and called 911.

    She told police something had finally snapped in her abusive common-law partner Gabriel Wortman. But by the time she made that phone call, he’d already murdered 13 people and his rampage was far from over.

  • In May 2012, a man named Mick Philpott stepped up to the mic, at a small pub tucked away in a corner of Derby, England.

    Wearing a fedora and sunglasses, Mick picked up the microphone and waited for a few beats before belting out the legendary lyrics, "We're caught in a trap. I can't walk out."

    As Mick's wife giggled at the back of the pub, Mick poured himself into the Elvis song "Suspicious Minds" apparently unable to read the room.

    In the fairly tight-knit town, (where Mick was practically known by everyone), the seemingly harmless karaoke gig held a dark irony.

  • On January 16th, 2020, the JW Marriott in downtown Los Angeles was hosting the adult industry’s biggest awards night. The atmosphere was Pure glitz and glamour, setting the scene for a night to remember.

    As Amie Harwick stood on the red carpet, waiting to be photographed, she suddenly heard a familiar voice say the words “It’s funny seeing you here.” It was Amie’s ex-boyfriend.

    But the line wasn’t delivered with the seamless poignancy of a ROM COM leading man and this was no happy reunion.

  • On the morning of January 17th, 2012, Lauren Kornberg, (a dog walker), and her mother, embarked on a trail in the direction of the iconic Hollywood Hills sign, accompanied by a pack of 9 furry companions.

    But as the mother and daughter meandered along the trail, a Golden Retriever in the group, suddenly bolted off, with a high pitch bark and started digging frantically.

    When the faithful Goldie finally emerged from the underbrush, he proudly carried back something in his mouth - a bag…that concealed a horrifying discovery.

  • What’s the first thing you think of when you hear the word “cult?”. That one word alone paints a picture of constant surveillance, suffocating conformity, and a community that hates to let anyone go.

    For some people caught up in cult-like circumstances, finding a way out can be a dangerous undertaking. But what if a cult was the source of where you found all your meaning, all your connections in life and it had been that way for years?

    In this scenario, finding yourself on the outside looking in, could be the real nightmare.

    That’s what happened to Stephen Mineo and Barbara Rogers when they crossed paths with Internet cult leader Sherry Shriner, a woman who weaponized a strange mythology of reptilians, clones, vampires, and demons against her own followers.

  • In the dark morning hours of February 23rd, 2022, in Green Bay, Wisconsin, Tara Pakanich was awakened by a loud bang.

    Warm under her blankets, still groggy from a sound sleep, the startling noise seemed like it could’ve been only one thing: the storm door.

    As Tara got out of bed to investigate, she noticed the lights still on in the basement, where her 24-year-old son, Shad Thyrion, had been hanging out for the last couple of days.

    But no one was down there now. As she headed back up the basement stairs, something strange suddenly caught her eye: a bucket with a beach towel draped over top.

  • In May 2009, two complete strangers met on a train traveling between Charleston, South Carolina and Washington D.C.

    The two strangers were both women, close in age, one was 28, the other 30.

    The slightly older woman had the misfortune of having her wallet stolen, and so the other woman opened up her own and lent some money to the perfect stranger.

    This random act of kindness would take both women down a very dark and sinister path.

  • On a snowy January night in 2018, while most people were fast asleep and still enveloped in their post-holiday glow, the crack of a pistol shattered the silence of the frigid air.

    In a cozy little home in Stevenson, Alabama, a man had just been shot.
    Once. Twice. And then a third time before he fell.

    As he lay bleeding on the kitchen floor and as his shooter worked frantically to save his life, no one could be prepared for the harrowing events that were about to unfold.
