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 happen...in 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.

Not Tah-day Mustache Man!

Welcome to our first Survivor story, someone we both love very much. A woman who beat all odds in every sense of the word and became the voice for victims of domestic violence. She changed laws and the way people think about violence. Her name? That would be Tracey Thurman. Her husband, that chodes name is Buck Thurman who would unleash such violence in the eyes of everyone, would try to take her life and would leave Tracey will lasting damage, but ultimately leave her with  one of the most powerful voices in the last couple decades. Sit back and listen to a story that almost sounds too crazy to even be real.

The Jodi Arias Case

This crazy bitch wraps up our double feature of unstable exes. If you havent listened to our first, pop over to episode 4 to hear about Katherine Knight. 

Jodi was a woman with nothing to offer except neurotic behavior. Her as a person is so basic, so vanilla. Slap some ugg boots on her and give her a pumpkin spice latte and she would be a poster child for basic bitch. However, her ability to switch and turn into a monster is one to take notes on. Proving even the most boring people can turn into a cold hearted killer. Not only would she brutally murder Travis Alexander, she would also try to smear his name through the mud in order to try and say she was the victim. If you didn't hate her before, you will after hearing her story.
