Wondery Presents: GURU: The Dark Side of Enlightenment
394
When we face challenges in life, we seek answers from people we believe can help us. When tragedy strikes an exclusive retreat with a self-help superstar, many people are left to wonder: how far is too far? James Arthur Ray was an Oprah-endorsed self-help teacher who achieved fame, fortune, and influence. But friends and family members of his followers questioned his unorthodox methods, and tried to stop him. From Wondery, the makers of “Dirty John,” “Dr. Death,” and “The Shrink Next Door,” comes a story about the dark side of enlightenment. Hosted by journalist Matt Stroud.

Cannibalism is arguably one of the most taboo crimes of all. Although most societies connect cannibalism with ancient Amazonian tribes or even rumors of devil worshiping rituals, fantasies of cannibalism are not entirely uncommon among killers, even more so if their motive for murder was sexual or sadistic. In Purcell, Oklahoma, in 2006, a little girl vanished, and her disappearance would lead to one of the most heinous cases the world has ever seen.

Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity is a defence that most killers hope and dream of. It is a defence that can sometimes essentially let a killer get away with murder. If found Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity, a killer is sent to a psychiatric hospital where they remain until they are considered sane in the eyes of the law whether that be one year or 40 years. It is the defence that stirs the most controversy because of the struggle to align the law with psychiatric knowledge. In 2012, an insanity defence led to the state of Oklahoma updating their definition of insanity

On the 23rd of February, 2014, a frantic 999 call to Surrey Police was placed by a woman who was desperately running for her life. In the phone call, the woman describes how her mother has been shot dead. Towards the end of the call, she informs the 999 operator that she is going to go back to the scene of the incident and acknowledges that she will probably lose her life. Her last words to the operator were: “I don’t know if I’m going to be alive if I go back there. He shot my mum. Bye.”

Victims of Injustice: Black Lives Matter
4929
As podcasters, we have a platform and duty to speak up and call out injustice. In light of the murder of George Floyd, we have come together in solidarity to use our platform to speak up against racial injustice and amplify the voices of black podcasters that deserve more recognition. Racism is prevalent in all industries; from the media who under-report on black victims to the justice system which routinely fails black victims. In this collaborative episode, we document black history and current events with the voices of those who have lived through it.

To some, Britain seems like a utopia. Each year, thousands of people from all across the world flock to Britain in search of a better life. They all come filled with hope and anticipation of what their new life in Britain will look like. In 2000, a family from Nigeria came to Britain looking for pastures greener. Instead, however, they found themselves all too aware of just how depraved and cruel other human beings can be and got a stark insight into the dark underbelly of urban and lawless Britain.

University lacrosse is renowned for its predominately white, privately educated “rich kid” reputation and over the years, it’s the main sport in university that routinely suffers from damaging scandals. These scandals always grip the media, most likely because everybody involved is young, attractive and privileged. But then in May of 2010, the University of Virginia was thrust into the spotlight after a murder revealed the dark underbelly of the far too frequent college culture of binge drinking, male entitlement and violence.

Wondery Presents: Generation Why
545
In this preview, The Generation Why Podcast revisits the case of Holly Bobo. In 2011, 20-year-old Holly Bobo was about to leave her house to take an exam to complete her nursing degree when her neighbors heard a scream. Her brother looked outside and thought she was arguing with her boyfriend. After speaking with his mother, he learned that her boyfriend is out of town and that the man with her is a stranger. By the time Clint Bobo understood the danger she was in, it was too late. She and the strange man disappeared into the woods, and Holly Bobo would never be seen alive again. Generation Why hosts Justin and Aaron first discussed this case in 2016, and since then, Zach Adams was convicted for the kidnapping and murder of Holly.

Bargo is located just off the Hume Highway in the New South Wales southern highlands. It’s a sleepy little town known most for its interesting bushranging history. It’s also known as the gateway to Picton Lakes, the very last pristine freshwater lake near Sydney. However in 1992, a 9-year-old girl vanished on her way home from school and in the aftermath, the small town of Bargo was left forever marred by the tragedy.

In some religions and communities, great weight is placed on the family and its so-called collective honor. To some within these religions and communities, family name and reputation dominates everything else. Sometimes when perceived shame has been brought upon said family, the victim has to pay the ultimate price. In 2006, a Kurdish woman named Banaz Mahmod vanished from her home in London.

In 2005, Ideal Home Magazine carried out a survey which showed that 1 in 5 women keeps a weapon beside her bed to defend herself against intruders. A number of women also carry concealed weapons or alarms while out in public out of fear that they will be attacked. While it may seem to be an extreme reaction to the nation’s obsession with crime, it is behavior that for a number of women, is completely normal. In Croydon, London, in September of 2005, a young model was attacked on the driveway of her own home, giving legitimacy to the fear that millions of women face.

In summer of 2015, a brutal crime scene was uncovered in the Bonita Springs home of a wealthy and well-known holistic medicine physician. In the middle of the kitchen lay the bludgeoned body of a woman, her head caved in by blows from a hammer. The murder completely gripped the nation but it wouldn’t take long until a trail of proverbial breadcrumbs led right to the doorstep of the guilty party.

One of the greatest fears for a number of women is going for a run while alone. Many women fear that they will become the victim of a sexual assault or worse. Crime statistics show that these kind of attacks are rare and women are more likely to face greater dangers from traffic. However, the fear that they inspire Is very much real, as are smaller scale episodes of harassment or assaults even in well-populated areas. In fact, it’s estimated that 43% of women runners have experienced harassment compared to just 4% of men. But then in 2016, New York City became the scene for one such brutal attack on a young woman that made women across the city terrified of venturing out alone.

In this six-part series “The Hare Krishna Murders” he explores an eastern religion with pure intentions that, in the hands of its western followers, became a criminal enterprise of drug running, molestation and murder.

Jasper is a small timber town around 100 miles northeast of Houston, Texas. It’s a quaint area that holds an annual Butterfly Festival the first October every year. However, in June of 1998, Jasper was rocked by a brutal hate crime that still reverberates across the nation today. As a motorist was arriving at the African American church on Huff Creek Road on the 8th of June, 1998, they were met by a grisly scene. Dumped in front of the church beside the African American cemetery was the mutilated torso of an African American man and a three-mile bloody trail revealed one of the world’s most disturbing murders.

For parents, their child moving overseas can be most of the most daunting moments of their life. On one hand, they want to give their child the freedom to determine their own fate but on the other hand, it can be a very scary experience, knowing that your child is so far away from home. However, that apprehension is nothing compared to the fear a parent feels when their child disappears while in another country.

It was early January of 2014 when a number of trash bags appeared on several rural roads throughout St. Clair County, Michigan, around 50 miles northeast of Detroit. Inside the trash bags were the dismembered remains of a man. The first theory upon discovery was that the gruesome murder was somehow connected to drugs. However, a witness soon came forward to say that they had witnessed a woman estimated to be in her 60s hurling the trash bags from her SUV. Nobody – and I mean nobody – could have ever fathomed the outcome.

It’s a sad fact that there is a clear pattern when it comes to the media. Too often, they more intensively cover the disappearances or abductions of young white women, even more so if they are in the upper middle class or of a higher social status. But crime does not discriminate. Anybody can become a victim, regardless of race, wealth or social status. When 16-year-old Phylicia Barnes disappeared in Baltimore, Maryland, over the Christmas period of 2010, many referred to the case as Baltimore’s Natalee Holloway case but the stark difference in media coverage between the two was overwhelming. The difference was that Natalee was white and Phylicia was African American.

Introducing: Joe Exotic
372
Joe Exotic devoted his life to raising and breeding lions, tigers, and other exotic animals at his Oklahoma zoo. He croons ballads, shoots guns, and puts it all on YouTube. But he’s also made a lot of enemies. And the biggest of all is the owner of a big cat sanctuary in Florida named Carole Baskin. The feud between Joe Exotic and Carole gets messy, vicious, and outrageous -- until both of them are pushed far beyond their limits. From Wondery, comes ‘Joe Exotic: Tiger King’, the story about two people who want to save animals and destroy each other.

40: Christian Aguilar
2930
For any parent – no matter the age of their child – one of the worst things that they can experience is their child going missing. The not knowing is arguably more traumatizing than knowing that they aren’t coming home. It’s an open wound, so to speak, that never really heals. One minute, they could feel a glimmer of hope but then within an instant, that hope can evaporate and its place, they could feel a depth of despair. In Gainesville, Florida, the Aguilar family experienced this emotional roller coaster when their son, Christian Aguilar, vanished. They were held captive by the uncertainty of Christians faith but still held on to the hope that Christian would be coming home.

Over the past decade and a half, the rise of smartphones and social media has combined, making it all too easy for teenagers to live their lives online. Understandably, many parents worry about what takes place behind the veil of secrecy of the internet. Many wonder if their children are being bullied or talking to people that they shouldn’t be. In Surrey in 2014, the case of Breck Bednar was a chilling reminder of just how dangerous the internet can be.

In Augusta, Maine, in 2001, a little girl was found dead in a turned over high-chair in the unfinished basement of her foster home. Nothing reveals more about a society than the welfare of its own children and the death led to public outrage, legislative hearings, and changes in the way Maine cares for its most vulnerable children. The case became a chilling reminder that it’s a misconception that child abuse only happens in low-income families and begged the question: What is the correct balance between saving a child from a potentially dangerous situation and destroying a family?

Introducing: The Dating Game Killer
506
In 1978, Rodney Alcala won a date on the popular TV show, The Dating Game. What no one knew was that he was a prolific serial killer in the middle of a cross-country murder spree. In this six-part series, co-hosts Tracy Pattin (Hollywood & Crime) and Stephen Lang (Avatar, Don’t Breathe) take listeners on an unbelievable journey into Alcala’s twisting secret life. He hid behind normal jobs as a typesetter at a prominent newspaper and a summer camp counselor. How did this predatory monster fool employers, prison psychiatrists, and parole boards — all while committing heinous crimes from coast to coast? And how did a one-time appearance as a game show contestant help lead to his capture? From the makers of Dirty John, Dr. Death, and Young Charlie, learn the story of the most famous serial killer you’ve never heard of - The Dating Game Killer.

Children are among the most vulnerable members within our community and great lengths are taken to protect them at all costs. Adults – especially parents – have a responsibility to protect youngsters and it’s one that isn’t taken lightly. The schoolyard is patrolled by teachers, at the playground, parents watch like hawks, and tiny hands are grasped tightly while out in public. There are also social service systems in place whose sole purpose is to protect children. But sadly, there is no such thing as a perfect system. No society can protect every single child and in 2006 a tragedy in Barrie, Canada, was a painful reminder.

Bend is a picturesque former lumber town at the foot of the Cascade Range in Oregon. Over the years, the population of Bend has risen exponentially. People are drawn to the area by its warm climate, its hiking, skiing, fishing, and cycling opportunities as well as its breweries. But in summer of 2016, a string of crimes sent shock waves throughout the town. Even more shocking was that when the perpetrator was arrested, it was revealed that he was involved in the disappearance of a young woman.

When they arrived on the scene, they initially, believed that the home was empty. However, after extinguishing the flames, they found the bodies of 66-year-old Joe Pittman and his wife, 62-year-old Joy, in their bed on the second floor. They were informed by neighbors that the couple’s 12-year-old grandson, Christopher Pittman, had been living with them for the past three weeks. However, Christopher was nowhere to be found.

When they arrived on scene, they discovered somebody sitting on the porch, spattered almost head to toe in blood. What they found inside traumatized even the most seasoned officers, so much so, that a stress team needed to be called in for specialized counselling.

The purpose of the police is to protect and serve but what happens when a failure on their behalf leads to the death of a young woman? Well in Gateshead, Newcastle, in 2016, this is exactly what happened.

There were missed opportunities and procedural failings by police and the army when 24-year-old Alice Ruggles contacted them for help and for protection while being the victim of a stalking campaign. The inactivity of those entrusted to care for the community led to the brutal and preventable murder of a young woman.

The two most common early signs of domestic violence are jealousy and controlling behaviour. It’s easy for people to say: “why don’t they just leave?” but statistics show that up to 75% of abused women who are murdered are murdered after they leave their partners. Domestic violence comes on not like a tsunami but as a steady wave, said Kit Gruelle, a survivor of domestic violence.

Too often, many women do try to leave toxic and abusive situations and tragically, they pay with their lives.

30: Vera Jo Reigle

The intellectually disabled are among the most vulnerable within the community. While many can lead normal lives, including holding down a job and raising a family, there are a number that sadly suffer in silence and need that extra bit of help. In an ideal world, those that struggle mentally would have a mentor or a guardian that have their very best interests at heart and assist them with their life decisions.

However, sadly for 24-year-old Vera Jo Reigle from Findlay, Ohio, she was truly alone in the world and those who appeared closest to her, were – in reality – her number one enemy. Poverty, drugs, neglect and abuse made up the four walls of a literal house of horrors for Vera Jo and in 2011, her disturbing death reverberated in a community which prides itself on being caring and compassionate and led to a discussion about what could be done to better identify and assist those who may be unwilling or unable to ask for help.

Redlands is a tranquil city in San Bernardino County, California. It’s known for its gracious Victorian homes, the Lincoln Shrine, acres of orange groves and low crime rate. While many surrounding cities are rife with gang violence and random street violence, residents of this bucolic city like to think that they inhabit an oasis. But throughout the 1990s, a wave of youth violence rocked the city and shattered their idyll. The violence culminated with the mysterious disappearance of a 14-year-old boy.

For a parent or guardian, their child going missing is undoubtedly their worst nightmare but the outcome of this case was even more horrific than anybody could have ever fathomed.

Lancashire is a ceremonial county in North West England. It is made up of beautiful and lush countryside and charming villages. One of the most gorgeous villages in the area is arguably Helmshore. This quaint village has the River Ogden running through it and the majority of the homes are brick faced and nostalgically attractive.

In 2016, however, a jealous obsession was brewing in Helmshore, one which would culminate with the brutal murder of a wealthy businesswoman.

27: Goleta Postal Murders
2444
Mass shootings have become such a part of American life that a simple word can evoke them from the nation’s collective memory. For example, Columbine, Sandy Hook and Luby’s. One thing you’ll notice about almost all mass shootings is that the perpetrator is male. Female mass shooters are rare. Female mass shooters that target their place of employment are even rarer.

But in Goleta, California, in 2006, an ex-postal worker was an exception to the rule. It was the nation’s deadliest workplace shooting perpetrated by a woman and the nation’s bloodiest shooting at a postal installation in almost 20 years.

During the 1960s, hitchhiking was a common occurrence in Britain as well as across the United States and Canada. It was seen as an easy and cheap way to get from place to place and maybe meet some new friends along the way. While the Moors Murders happened between 1963 and 1965, many Britons felt as though this was a terrible one-off and it didn’t deter them from hitchhiking. While nowadays, a child hitchhiking to and from school would warrant a call to child protection services, back in the 1960s, some children did.
But in 1968 in Surrey, England, one such boy never came home, paving the way to one of the most exhaustive criminal investigations that Britain had ever seen and uncovering one of the most prolific pedophiles in British history.

Bermuda is a British dependent territory in the North Atlantic Ocean, just around 590 miles off the United States Coast. It isn’t a third-world country or a struggling developing nation. It has the one of the highest per capital incomes in the world. In 1996, it had a population of around 60,000 and prided itself on its low crime rate, white sandy beaches and golf courses. Because of this, Bermuda was a widely popular and trouble-free resort, especially popular among Americans. On average, half a million people visit Bermuda yearly. Bermuda was also home to a number of expatriates, many of whom come from British Commonwealth countries and they are attracted to the island because it is steeped in British traditions.

With such a small population and low crime rate, island news seldom ventured beyond local newspapers or travel news. That was, at least, until summer of 1996, when the world was rocked by the brutal murder of a young tourist and the injustice that ensued, leaving a black cloud hovering over this idyllic English colony.

Just as families across the world were settling down to celebrate Easter Sunday with their loved ones, a brutal crime scene was being discovered in Fresno, California. East Park Circle Drive was affluent neighborhood in Southern California. The half-a-million-dollar homes were well-kept and their gardens well-manicured.

The murders stunned the community and highlighted the fact that violent murders were not limited to Fresno’s Skid Row Areas. It was a bloody reminder that even in your own expensive home in a safe and quiet neighborhood, you could become a victim.

Colchester is a town in the county of Essex. It is known for being a market town and holds one of the most popular markets in North Essex. In 2014, the small town was rocked by two extremely brutal murders and the investigation to catch the killer was one of the biggest carried out by Essex Police. The town was held on edge as the spectre of a serial killer loomed over. Sales of stab proof vests rocketed while people refused to go anywhere alone out of fear they would become the next target.

The community and media alike had conjured up the killer as a Yorkshire Ripper or Ted Bundy type, but nobody could have possibly predicted who the killer would turn out to be.

22: Garrett Phillips
4741
Potsdam is a small college town in New York of around 9,400 residents. It is located around 20 miles from the Canadian border and has an active downtown strip from the 1950s which morphs into the usually combination of strip malls and chain stores. It is predominantly white. In 2010, it was almost 90% white and less than 3% black. On the 24th of October, 2011, a young boy lay dead on his apartment floor as Potsdam village police embarked on an investigation into his slaying. But did that investigation focus solely on one man before other avenues of investigation were adequately pursed?

Long before fingerprints or DNA had even been analysed, Potsdam Village Police zoned in on one man in particular and with an overzealous prosecutor forsaking justice in the name of keeping her campaign promise, tunnel vision took over.

Tunnel vision can set in when a horrific crime takes place and there is tremendous public pressure to find the killer. People can often be hard-wired to find support for their conclusions even when this support does not exist and ignore information that challenges their conclusion. The presumption of innocence is a cornerstone of justice and when tunnel vision takes over, the wheels of justice move even slower.

The case of Garrett Philips had the elements of a classic whodunit, and according to who you ask, it also had the elements of a race-based prosecution.

In the grim lifestyles of homeless youths, instant and transitionary friendships are as routine as day and night. In the late 1980s in Sydney, New South Wales, a group of transient youngsters drifted in and out of each other’s lives just as easily as they drifted around Sydney’s streets and the city’s rail system. Studies have indicated that a common characteristic of young violent offenders is the alienation from families and often from the community as a whole.

The displaced youngsters were all well-known to police but in 1988, they became well-known to the world after committing one of the most vicious crimes in Australian history.

One of the most terrifying things in the world for young African American men is knowing that certain people can feel threatened by you, simply by existing. Black blindness is a phenomenon that makes white cops see an imaginary gun on an African American man during a routine traffic stop. Sometimes, it can go hand in hand with the Stand your Ground Law. In 2012, the Tampa Bay Times found that those who killed African Americans using the law went free 73% of the time while those who killed white people using the law went free 59% of the time.

This controversial law offers protection to people who harm or kill someone who they feel threatened by. The ambiguity of the definition of threat under this law grants so much latitude that the law can often be abused. The Stand your Ground Law sets the bar incredibly low for what constitutes as a threat and when deadly force can be used to neutralize that so-called threat, it makes for a slippery slope.

In 2012, much of America was celebrating the re-election of the nation’s first African American president but just three weeks later in Jacksonville, Florida, the murder of an unarmed African American teenager was a bloody reminder of just how far we still have to go in the battle against racism.

For a lot of students, middle school is the place for a number of big changes in their life: a new campus, new teachers and even new friends. It is also a time when a lot of teenagers try to find out who they truly are and experimenting in any direction is completely normal.

However, sadly middle school can also be a place where bullies target those who they feel are not conforming to the expected norms. The pressures of fitting in alongside a new environment can often prove to be very difficult for some teenagers and when prejudice and bigotry go unchecked, it can sometimes lead to violence.

In 2008, a school shooting occurred in Oxnard, California, and in the aftermath, the deceased victim was practically put on trial alongside her killer.

Almost every single day, children pay for the bad choices
that adults make. They’re left to die in hot cars. They’re sent into foster
care while their parents make their way through the prison system. They’re left
in sleazy motels while their guardian tries to get their next drug fix. They’re
sexually abused or beaten by a relative supposed to care for them. Sometimes
the simple proximity to bad decisions can make children vulnerable.

We all feel rage at the casual indifference in which adults drag children along in the wake of their bad decisions, and in Arlington, Texas, in 1994, a teenage girl paid the ultimate price for the stupid actions of her older brothers.

Chuck E. Cheese's has long been a place where parents take their children for a good and affordable time. This simple restaurant is complemented by arcade games, amusement rides and animatronic displays. It is synonymous with family fun. But on a crisp winter night in Aurora Colorado in December of 1993, this family style restaurant was the scene of a mass shooting that highlighted just how easily a gun can rip through a workplace.

The internet provides a cloak for monsters with nefarious thoughts and ideas. It provides these seedy characters easy access to freely consume our homes, thoughts, and lives. Social media is virtually an invisible world. A place where people can choose to be whatever – or whoever – they want to be. Of course, the internet can be a fantastic place for children and teenagers to explore their interests, learn and socialise with likeminded people but behind the veil of normalcy, sexual predators can be lurking.

In 2012, the city of Van, Buren, Arkansas, was rocked by the disappearance of a teenage girl. When it was discovered that she had been chatting online with a local sex offender, it forced parents to look with new suspicion at their children’s phones and computers.

It’s said that your teenage years are the most formative years of your life. They’re the years for finding yourself. Yeah, we’re all familiar with that cheesy cliché. But then there was Devon Guzman from Easton, Pennsylvania. At just 19-years-old, Devon knew exactly who she was. Openly gay, she drove around with a rainbow flag on the bumper of her car, always attracting an unamused glance from the intolerant locals.

But in 2000, Devon found herself as the star of a tragic tale of love and betrayal among three women and a man. This volatile mix of teenage angst and jealousy would eventually lead to a brutal murder.

4475
The death penalty. It’s easily one of the biggest debates in America. Even today. Now those who agree with the death penalty like to imagine that the state never gets it wrong. However, that’s just not the case. It is better that ten guilty people go free than one innocent person be killed for a crime he did not commit. The case of Carlos DeLuna is not a lesson in justice, but injustice. It truly lays bare America’s broken “machinery of death.” The term machinery of death comes from Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun, who spent 24 years reviewing and often upholding death sentences. He had come to the conclusion that the potential for error is just far too great in a system which is “fraught with arbitrariness, discrimination, caprice and mistake.”

And while a large majority of people believe that America has the best justice system in the world, the case of Carlos DeLuna proves that even in America, an innocent man can be executed.

The case of Shawna Forde is a bizarre and tragic tale which highlights the dangers of militia groups. She first began making headlines in 2009, when she claimed to have been targeted for a series of violent incidents in Everett, Washington. According to Forde, she was the victim of Mexican drug cartel retribution for her Minutemen activism. The Minuteman Project began in 2004, allegedly in a response to the wave of people crossing the U.S. Border from Mexico. They were an anti-immigration movement, insisting that undocumented residents were responsible for increasing crime. However, in 2012, Forde committed a crime under the guise of the minutemen which completely overshadowed any of their earlier actions.

As human beings, we all have ambitions and goals. For a number of people all across the world, their life’s ambition is quite simply to have a large family. In a perfect world, babies are born into hard-working families that do their best to provide for them a loving home and a stable environment. But what about those that are seen as nothing more than a source of income? Mick Philpott first saw his name in the headlines in 2006, when he requested a bigger council-house for his massive family. Philpott had fathered 17 children by a number of different women and to fund his family, he relied solely on state benefits. His lifestyle was something which angered a number of hard-working Britons who felt as though he was procreating solely as a means of income. Britain had almost forgotten about the Philpott family when in 2012, tragedy struck when their house went up in flames, opening one of the most shocking criminal investigations that Derby had ever seen.

Lying south of Bega in New South Wales, Australia, is the tiny hamlet of Kalaru. In 1997, it only had around 400 residents, living among the green pastures of prime south-coast dairy country. It’s a tight-knit community where everybody knows their neighbor. There are no fancy houses, hotels or restaurants, just modest homes, a service station, and a caravan park. Surrounded by bushland and beaches, the area was extremely popular for horseback riding and swimming. The tranquil and rural lifestyle provides locals with a sense of security, but in 1997, this sense of security was completely shattered when two local teenagers vanished while walking to a party and as it turned out, the innocent act of being in the wrong place at the wrong time had deadly consequences Show notes: https://morbidology.com/morbidology-the-podcast---11:-lauren-barry-&-nicole-collins/ Podcast Promos: The True Crime Files: Twitter: https://twitter.com/thetcfiles?lang=en Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thetruecrimefiles/ Website: https://thetruecrimefiles.com/ Murder in the Rain: Twitter: https://twitter.com/murderintherain Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/murderintherain/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mintherain/ Website: https://www.murderintherain.com/ Audio Sources: Ever Mindful & Evening of Chaos by Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/

If you’re driving along Interstate 80 at the Utah-Nevada border, or as its commonly called “cowboy corridor," your eyes will be drawn towards a massive neon cowboy, waving suggestively into the sun. This cowboy’s name is Wendover Will and he has been welcoming gamblers to West Wendover, Nevada, for almost 7 decades. West Wendover is a small city that has thrived under a lucrative gambling industry in Nevada. In addition, it’s also known for it's legal brothels and the air force base where Enola Gay took off, heading for Hiroshima. In fact, scenes from the movie, Independence Day, were filmed here. Amidst these tales, however, is a story so shocking that is still wends through the deserts of West Wendover. A story about a tragic night where three local families lost their teenage children.

09: The Weepy Voiced Killer
2189
For a number of serial killers, sometimes the act of murder just isn’t enough to satisfy them. Some taunt the police in letters. Some call family members to tease them. Some take to the media to stir up emotions. Such cat-and-mouse messages often satisfy the killer’s desperate ego and heighten their sense of control over the world. They want recognition and attention for their crimes But sometimes, these messages can be spurred by a sense of guilt, whether conscious or not. Between 1980 and 1982, a serial killer was terrorizing Minneapolis residents. He became known as the “Weepy-Voiced Killer” due to the emotional phone calls he would make to police following his murders, begging them to catch him.

08: The Cheshire Murders
4078
The Connecticut town of Cheshire has a suburban and homely feel. It looked like it belonged on a pretty postcard. Residents of this quaint town take care of their homes and keep their lawns well manicured. Historically, it was a farming town with a number of small family-run farms. But then in 2007, a random home invasion took a sinister turn and ended with the murders of two young girls and their mother. The senseless crime struck fear into the hearts of not only Cheshire families, but families across the world. If you’re not safe in your own home, then where are you safe?

04: Elisa Izquierdo
2053
The tragic case of Elisa Izquierdo is an all-too-familiar tale of bureaucratic ineptitude. Her short life and brutal death was so horrendous that it reduced even the most hardened officers to tears.  When she was just 6-years-old, she was murdered by her abusive mother. New York’s Child Welfare Administration knew all about Elisa's plight long before her death yet did nothing to save her. Young Elisa became a symbol of the failures in New York’s Child Welfare Administration and Family Court, whose bureaucracy allowed this little girl to slip right through the cracks and into her grave.
