#218: He Made a DEAL WITH THE DEVIL - Sacrificed 80+ Children For Money & Power (Serial Killer Gilles De Rais)

There are a few things you should do before moving out of your house. Most people will make a short to-do list of sorts. Turn off the power, check all the closets for valuables, things like that. But even then you will always leave some part of yourself behind? maybe it?s a piece of mail, your welcome mat, or maybe even your scent. It?s inevitable. Understandable. You probably wouldn?t expect to find dead bodies though. The headless bodies of two young boys. They weren?t hidden in the chimney, or buried in the backyard, they were slumped over in a room in plain sight. You couldn?t help but wonder. What the hell was the previous owner doing? What happened? And where are the heads?

#217: The IHOP Murders - Waitress Willing To KILL To Keep Her Job

?Welcome to IHOP (International House of Pancakes), how many people in your party?? Dee had the routine down to a science. She knew what to say, when to smile, when to talk about her kids, when to flirt so she could keep the tips rolling in. Today was not her day though. She wanted to throw up. Her hands were shaking and she was messing up everyone?s orders. She ran to the bathroom to splash water on her face. She reminded herself how important this was. She took out the crumbled piece of paper in her apron that a customer had left for her. It had ?$3000? written on it. That?s how much it would cost to kill the man she wanted dead. He needed to die in order for her to keep her job.

#216: The Locked House Mystery - Was The Killer Hiding Inside The House?

He was the type of psychiatrist that was to get to the bottom of someone?s underlying problem. What was the real reason she thought herself to be the devil?s child? What made her feel like she was so evil she could bring out the darkness in others? And what about those two guys? The ones she was so insistent that they were trying to seduce her? She claimed she just knew they were either going to seduce her or they would all commit some violent crimes together. She seemed scared of her relationship with the two guys. You?re probably hoping the doctor calls the police to report the two men but that would be impossible. Because the two seductive men were her two 4-year-old sons. And soon Sheila would be labeled as a murderer? but what if there really was a man out there to get her?

It?s said that there are a lot of dark spirits in New Orleans. It might be one of the most haunted cities in the entire world and one story that the city can?t seem to escape is that of Madame LaLaurie. The rumors go like this - she tortured her victims and experimented on them. It?s said she liked to drill skulls into victims? heads and insert spoons inside so she could ?stir their brains.? It?s said that she would stick ash, feces, and other vile things into the victim?s mouths, ears, and eyes, and sew them shut. Another disturbing rumor was that she would cut holes into their stomachs, pull out their intestines, and wrap them around their bodies like belts.

#212: The Police Sex Cult That Sacrificed 25 Babies During Rituals

The Ingram house from the outside, would have presented itself as the dream life for a family. Situated on a beautiful ranch, with a vegetable garden out back, it was superbly normal.

#211: The Millionaire ?Human Girl? Collector & Sex Dungeons

If you walked into his house, you would be tempted to walk right back out. The smell alone could have knocked you back through the front door. Every surface, every wall, every square inch of the floor was littered with dust.  He collected tens of thousands of bottles, empty cereal boxes, trash, magazines, everything. He kept it all. I don?t know how you would find anything, let alone anyone in a place like that.  It would have been nearly impossible to know that in a tiny little empty sugar box that blended in with the rest of the trash - there was a note. It read, ?my name is Amy help me? I have been kidnapped.?  In this house, 5 women were held captive for 15 years, and he almost got away with it.  Full Source Notes: rottenmangopodcast.com To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

#210: The Influencer Deepfake Sex Club - Blackmail & Torture of Taiwanese YouTubers

Zamy, a Taiwanese influencer, had worked hard to build up a wholesome reputable image. Yet, it was all going to come crashing down in the most nightmare-ish way possible. One day, she woke up to being flooded with messages with people asking her ?what are you doing this for? Do you not make enough money on YouTube?? It was a ?leaked? video of Zamy. She was engaging in sexual activity yet she didn?t remember anything about this encounter. But clearly, it happened because there was no denying that was her face. But the more she studied the video the more she realized a few small things were off. Her body didn?t look the same. She didn?t speak Japanese, but in the video she did. She was so confused. She had to dig further. What she found was terrifying. A group of thousands of men who were trading and purchasing deepfake p*rn videos of YouTubers and celebrities. None of the people depicted consented for their faces to be used like this. And this was just the start of a nightmare.

#209: Indonesia?s ?Jeffrey Dahmer? - Serial Killer Very Idham Henyansyah

In the summer of 2009, there were whispers around South Korea. A Korean blogger had gone out to the woods and came back traumatized. They had seen something in the woods they shouldn?t have.  They called it ?The Mimic? and it is NOT human. It has no human emotions, no human empathy, but it sounds just like a human. It can mimic anyone?s voice to lure you into their web of death.  It sounds like an urban legend, right? But there are people amongst us that do the same thing. They do not feel love, empathy, and have no care for others but they are so convincing in their acting you would never know. They feel nothing yet you feel like you can trust them. That is the story of the Indonesian Jeffrey Dahmer.  To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

#206: ?Hollywood?s Cannibal? - The Dark Empire of the Hammer Family

It all started with a Hollywood divorce. The joint statement released by both parties seemed amicable enough, but the public wanted more. They wanted to know the intimate details of the relationship?s downfall. They say 50% of marriages end in divorce, so the odds weren?t in their favor to begin with, but nobody expected it to go down like this. Very quickly, a public divorce turned into allegations of assault, abuse, and cannibalism. One of Hollywood?s own leading men allegedly had a string of victims whom he wanted to eat. Texts about him wanting to cook their ribs, their skin, see their brains, and do horrible things to them were released. And once that broke the news, people started digging into his family history and they found an empire. An empire of ruthless, egotistical, sexually deviant men. Let?s talk about the Hammers.

#204: The Man Who Eats Faces - Cannibal Frat Boy

The two police officers ran out of their car. They knew there was time was of the essence when they saw the stream of blood running down the residential driveway. They had their guns drawn and started making their way into the garage where they heard animalistic noises. A dog perhaps? They didn?t know what to expect but it wasn?t this. On the ground they found the victim laying flat on their back, arms spread, blood everywhere, looking up at them. The victim pleaded with them, ?please help me.? And next to the body of the victim was another man. He was latched onto the victim?s body using both hands to hold the victim?s face in place?so he could bite off his face flesh. He chewed. He swallowed. He was eating the victim?s face in front of the police officers. He was like a real-life parasite attached to the victim?s face.

#203: The Carnival Boy - Serial Killer Pee Wee Gaskins

It was a bit gruesome even for a carnival act. The snake and the rat. A giant king cobra in the cage hissing about and an employee would throw rat after rat into the cage. No matter how full, bored, or even tired the snake was, it would kill each rat that entered the cage. Even most adults would grab their child?s arm and rush away. It was never a pretty sight to see death in action, but little Pee Wee Gaskins sat glued to the bars of the cage. Eyes never leaving the snake. He felt in awe. The snake didn?t kill because it was hungry. No, the snake killed because it wanted to. This revelation was Pee Wee?s first erection, and he knew from that day forward he wanted to be a king cobra snake. He wanted to be the most prolific of all the serial killers.

#202: The Rape of Nanking & The Trafficking of Comfort Women

They were called ?Comfort Women,? but their lives would not be in any sense comfortable. They were kidnapped, tortured, and held hostage to be assaulted by military officials. Soldiers had their own name for them; it was ?public toilets.? Most of these women either died in captivity from murder, disease, or from the sheer violence of their assaults. But don?t be fooled by the name, sometimes comfort women were girls as young as 11 years old. Why? Well, wartime always brings out the superstitions in soldiers, and it was believed that assaulting a virgin brought soldiers strength and power. And they would need that strength to go out and kill over 200,000 citizens in the city of Nanking. This might be one of the darkest cases we have covered in a very long time.

#200: 13 Popular High School Football Players Gang Raped Their Disabled Classmate - ?The Princes of Glen Ridge?

When I say ?it was the town?s best-kept secret,? what do you imagine? Maybe an unknown hole-in-the-wall restaurant with the best milkshakes? Maybe a secret hangout spot near the river with the best city views. Not for the town of Glen Ridge; it was much darker than that. For them, their best-kept secret was their boys. The town?s group of star athletes - the football players, wrestlers, basketball players, and the most popular boys in class. So why are they a secret? Well, they?re not.

Edward?s new boss loved a good team-building event. Most companies would take their employees out for a fun night of bowling. But not Edward?s boss, Robin; he liked to have a more intimate setting. He gathered all 3 of his employees in the attic of his house and told them to follow after him. He started chanting random phrases while holding up an object into the air above them. Then he dramatically pressed the object to his mouth and took a bite. He cackled maniacally and passed it around for everyone to eat. It was an amputated human breast. They were all going to be cannibals from this point on. Robin didn?t care though. He didn?t even care that he ripped the flesh straight from a human being who was still alive.

Take her crown of being the most popular girl in school. She would not stand for it. When she found out who did it - she would do anything to stop them. This is the story of how 8 high school kids played a hand in a 14-year-old girl?s brutal murder. Book: ?Under The Bridge? - by Rebecca Godfrey (the best deep dive you will get on this case - she really shed light into the victim?s life and struggles.)

#189: How a Foster Care Home Created a Monster Predator

There were always 12. 10 foster kids in the house at all times, plus the two biological children of the Baker parents. 12 kids. All 12 kids would grow up to see some heinous things. It?s alleged that the Bakers would force the foster boys to molest the foster girls in their care. It?s said that the Bakers would even force brothers to inappropriately touch sisters under their direction. Victims came forward to say they were assaulted weekly by Mr. Baker, and they remember being starved as a fear tactic. Most of these kids came out of the foster home as survivors, but one, one child grew up to become the predator. One that would prey on victims where they might be the most vulnerable - the church.

#188: The Dark Life of a ?Sex Trafficker/Pimp?

She never used to sleepwalk, but maybe that?s what happens when you hit your 30s? Her life was spiraling out of control because of it. She woke up one morning dangling off the side of 4th-floor balcony. She had no idea how she even got there. She could have seriously hurt herself or even died? she was just thankful he was there to save her. Or that time she woke up covered in blood. He told her that he found her roaming around at night, in a daze, with a knife in her hand. He thinks she murdered someone? She started panicking. That?s exactly what he wanted. If history had taught him anything, it was that she was close. Close to taking her own life. He wanted to break her.

#186: The Middle School Library Rapist

He called it the ?bear cave.? He liked the sound of it. Bears were unassuming predators? that kind of sounded like him. Inside his ?bear cave? there was a desk, an inviting yellow beanbag, and of course, it was filled with snacks and sodas. Don?t forget his hidden condom box, a stack of porn magazines, and pillows hidden in a box that said ?Christmas decorations.? The only really odd thing about his ?cave?? - it was in the library of a local middle school. The teacher had been using it to sexually molest and rape dozens of middle school students.

#179: Dismembered Into 2000 Pieces (Nanjing University Mutilation Case)

Margaret was cooking up her favorite stew. She could use it. The temperature was below zero, the winter storms were approaching, and Margaret hoped the nutrients from the pork bones would give her energy. She would need the energy for her cleaning job. She took her pork bones, which were neatly pre-sliced, she took them out, washed them, and plopped them into her water. It was almost muscle memory - but when she stuck her hand in again she felt something strange. She pulled out some bony pieces in the bag and it took her a moment to realize she was staring at 3 severed human fingers. Margaret didn?t have pork meat. She had the dismembered remains of a university student. The police would find 2000 more pieces of that student dropped around campus.
