Episode 400: The Murder of Molly McLaren

Molly McLaren was just starting out at University when she met Joshua Stimpson via tinder. The two of them seemed to have a lot in common and hit it off instantly. Josh told Molly that she was his first real girlfriend, and that was comforting to her because he was her first serious relationship. In all reality Josh was lying, he had dated women in the past and actually terrorized many of them. Molly would soon learn that he was a dangerous individual, and took all the right steps to get away from him. But he was a vile, sick and twisted individual who simply couldn?t handle hearing ?no.? from a woman.

Episode 397: The Murder of Sherri Rasmussen

In 1986 Sherri Rasmussen was brutally murdered in her own home. She was a young nurse who had already worked her way to becoming the director of nursing at Glendale Adventist Medical Center and had just gotten married three months earlier. But when her husband John returned home on February 24th, 1986 he found her laying dead on their living room floor and their home absolutely ransacked. Was this a case of robbery gone wrong or was someone in a position of power responsible?

Episode 394: Fred & Dolly Oesterreich

Ash brings us the story of Dolly Oesterreich and the murder of her husband Fred. When Fred was murdered late one summer night in the couple's home the police wondered if this was a burglary gone wrong. But they would soon learn they had always been closer to catching the killer than they realized. This is a tale of scorned lovers, deception, and lies but ultimately justice prevails.

Soon Marguerite, after scamming multiple men? like Prince Edward VIII, would meet a young Egyptian ?Prince.? Their life was set up to be picture perfect, but all was not as it seemed.

Episode 383: The Framing of Kelli Peters

For this episode of Morbid Ash has a bit of a different tale for us. This is the case of Kelli Peters; a mom, the PTA president, and framed woman. The afternoon of February 17th 2010 started off so normal for Kelli. She pulled into the school she?d been volunteering at for years and started getting to work with the kids. Out of nowhere, Kelli?s afternoon took a turn. She was called to the office where a police officer waited for her, and when she got there he wanted to know whether or not he could search her car. When he did he uncovered a ceramic pipe, 17 grams of pot, 11 percocet pills and 29 vicodin pills. But for the first time in probably the history of ever, the drugs really weren't Kelli?s. She had been framed.

Episode 379: The Tragic Case of Florence Maybrick

Today Alaina brings us the case of Florence Maybrick and asks that we decide whether or not this woman was guilty of murder. Florence?s husband James was known to have a tummy trouble or two, but in May of 1889 those troubles progressed much further and James ended up dead. Immediately, suspicion was placed on Florence and many wondered whether James had actually succumbed to some kind of illness, or if it was Florence that was behind the sudden death. Had she poisoned her husband?

Episode 374: The Almost Valentines Day Massacre with Jordan from Nighttime Podcast

We got another chance to sit down with one of our favorite Canadians, Jordan from The Nighttime Podcast. He walks us through a case that hit pretty close to home for him. Lindsay Souvannarath, along with co-conspiritors James Gamble and Randall Shepherd planned a mass shooting that would have taken place on Valentines day at the mall in Halifax, CAN. Jordan was there pushing his son around in a carriage that day as the mall was quickly evacuated. Later he got the chance to talk to Souvannarath and was kind enough to share some of his interviews with us.

We got some spooky ass woods for you guys! Alaina tells us the tale of Robinson Woods located in Illinois.

Episode 362: The Source Family

It?s been a little while since we brought you a cult story so here we go!!!! Ash was chatting with her friend about The Source family and after diving deeper into it she just had to bring it to all you weirdos! The Source family was established in 1969 by a man named Jim Baker. He had this idea for a hip new restaurant that would bring new age ideas and organic, whole foods all together. It was a great idea in theory, but over time the whole thing would turn on its head. A cult was born and all kinds of wild things were going on, but what would be the most wild was the unexpected end of the cults ~Earthly Spiritual Father~ Jim Baker.

Episode 359: The Club Kid/Party Monster Murder

Michael Alig, or you may know him better as Party Monster, was crowned king of the Club Kids back in the late 80?s/early 90?s. You may have heard of the club kids, some famous examples today are Bjork, Amanda Lepore, and Ru Paul. They ruled the streets of Manhattan when the streetlights came on and partied the night away. Michael would throw these elaborate parties with crazy performers, wild themes and loads of drugs but it wouldn?t take long for the Club Kid scene to come crashing down to the ground. By the end two club kids would become murderers and one of their own, Angel Melendez would be the one killed.

Episode 353: Justice For Katie Palmer

On the morning of April 21st John Palmer and his wife Katie decided to start their day off with a nice walk together before the craziness of their day to day ensued. They didn?t know that one of their neighbors would also be out that morning, driving his F-250, impaired to say the least. Katie and John were both hit by that man, Cory Todd Foster. John suffered serious injuries that left him in the ICU and unfortunately, Katie was killed in the crash. Cory Todd Foster, who has a 20 year history of vehicular crimes including DWI, reckless driving and speeding faced absolutely no charges.

A huge thank you to John Palmer for speaking to us about Katie's life and the injustice surrounding her death.

There are so many injustices in this case that will leave you infuriated, but the fight is not over. There will be justice for Katie Palmer, and all of us can have a hand in helping. For more information and updates on Katie?s case these are the best links:
