Take you back to July 1995

In this episode we each tell you a story of kids who killed kids. Same month, same year...different locations. Apologies now, something is wrong with one of our mics, we are working on sending it back to get fixed. Classic issues, if something goes right...naturally something has to break. So we apologize for the weird audio issues 

Ember goes first with a sad story of the muder of 8 year old Jonathan Thimpson in Canada. 14 year old Sandy Charles and a 7-8year old friend lured Jonathan into the woods and killed him. Sandy watched warlock 1&2 too many times and thought if he did a sacrifice, he would gain the ablity to fly. We also cry in this story 

We take a small break to talk about our awesome headphones and how if you go to and order some you get 15% off if you enter in COLORMEDEAD15 at check out

Angel's story is gross. Hear about how 3 teens Jacob, Joseph, and Royce ask Elyse Pahler to come party with them. Shortly after she arrives, they attack her. Her death, much like Jonathan's was not quick. Whats worse is what the boys do after she is dead, over the course of about a month. 

After all the stories, Ember reads some stories from Steven Lampleys book titled Outside your Door. Stories that sound exactly like the both of them. Go to to learn more about Steven, his books and where to get them. Highly reccommended. 

Also hit up sign up now. Sweet loot boxes all dedicated to true crime could be delivered to your door every month. Shirts, collectable items, memorabilia, etc. be the first to get your hands on this box with us. we can open them all together! 

Thank you to Rocky for our intro. You are a badass for doing that in hurricane Irma. Guys go listen to his show called "what the fuss" support them, they make us laugh and Rocky is a solid dude, we are happy to have him as a friend. 

Also don't forget Twisted Philly and ESP. they did some promos for us and we enjoy their podcasts very much. We also mentioned Ear Hustle, go check them out. Gives a different side to life in prison that is real. Very cool. 

I hope we didn't forget anything. We will be having a disclaimer at the beginning of each episode after this one and in our next episode we will talk about why and then move into our episode. Next week we start the Ripper Crew so stay tuned for that 2 part case. Until then....Stay out of chalk lines!

Why can't he tell us why? 

Nov 3 1998 would be the last time the Clifton family ever saw their adorable 8 year old daughter Maddie Clifton. She would go missing, which would spark a massive search for the little girl. One week later, a greusome discovery would be made by Joshua Phillips mother on Nov 10, 1998. Her son had murdered his neighboorhood friend and no ones lives would ever be the same. The one question we all still have to this day is the exact reason Joshua decided to kill Maddie. Will we ever know? This one is a little heavy, as it is never easy to talk about children being murdered in such a horrific way.

The Early Years Of Dean Corll

You could trust him with your pralines, just not with your boys. This is part 1 in covering one of the top serial killers in the 1970's until John Wayne Gacy a couple years later. Corll would have a 3 year streak of rape, brutal torture, and murder of at least 29 boys in Texas, specifically in the Houston Heights area. He would have the help of 2 teen boys, however, before we get into that we must start where all good stories the beginning. Here we break down the early years of Dean and tell his backstory as much as we can. What his life was like and events that lead up to getting his first helper and eventually his first known murder. How did the man who was affectionately named the Candy Man, become one of the most brutal monsters we've ever read about? Some things are still a mystery. Pour yourself a drink and lets start in on the first segment into this piece of work.
