You asked, Jon Allen delivered. What better way to spend your Tuesday afternoon than to listen to the poetic beat of a Jon Allen listener tale? Jon wrote to us about his experience as an 8 year old who spent the night in a haunted farm house and was, honestly, graced by the presence of a ghost named Rachel!
We’ve got a haunted hot spot for you this week! Heading over to San Diego, California and diving into all the hauntedness that is the Whaley House. We hope your main takeaways from this episode are: never buy land that was once used for hangings, always set the house alarm as fast as humanly possible, and remember that it’s rude to blow tobacco dust in someone’s face!

If you’ve ever watched the movie Jennifer’s Body, you’ve probably heard that it was inspired by a true crime case, and promptly rolled your eyes at whoever told you so. Well the truth is, it actually was. In July of 1995 Elyse Pahler snuck out of her house to meet with three boys she was beginning to consider friends. They lured her to a Eucalyptus field where they strangled, stabbed and raped her dead body all in the name of Satan. They made claims that they thought sacrificing a virgin to the devil himself would make their guitar playing better and take them to new levels of potential fame. Spoiler alert: it didn’t.As always, thank you to our sponsors:Athena Club: Stop using razors that underdeliver and switch to Athena Club! Sign up today and you’ll get 20% off your first order!

In 1933 The Papin sisters brutally murdered two members of the family that they worked for, for seven years. After Christine and Lea’s troubled childhood, they went to work for the Lancelin family and grew very close with each other, we all know how that “us against the world” thing goes.

This week's mini morbid is Ash-centric and way harsh, Ty. We’re looking into the death of actress, Brittany Murphy. Did she simply die of natural causes or did the husband do it? Brittany collapsed in her home on Dec 20, 2009 and the details surrounding the case have always struck us as strange, secretive and quite frankly, dark. Something leaves us with a bad taste in our mouths here.As always, thank you to our sponsors:Best Fiends: With over 100 million downloads and tons of five-star reviews, Best Fiends is a must-play!

The first of two parts in the Brenda Sue Schaefer murder case. Brenda was a modest, hard working woman just looking for the right man to fall in love and enjoy life with. Unfortunately she met Mel Ignato instead.

For the MEGA-Morbid this week Alaina dives into the real life, “Scream” murder of Cassie Jo Stoddart. Cassie was murdered by two friends and classmates, Torey Adamcik and Brian Draper, while she was house sitting in a big house in the middle of nowhere: everyone’s worst fear. These two jerks terrorized Cassie in her final hours all because they wanted to make a movie and know what it felt like to kill someone. Alaina roasts these Billy and Stu wanna-bes almost as hard as BTK as we cover what happened prior to, during and after the murder. As always, thank you to our sponsors:Skylight Frame: Special offer, you can get $10 off your purchase of a Skylight Frame when you go to Skylight Frame.com and enter code MORBID. HelloFresh: Go to HelloFresh.com/80morbid and use code 80morbid to get a total of $80 off, including free shipping on your first box.

In May of 1995 Scott Amedure revealed his secret crush on The Jenny Jones Show to Jonathan Schmitz. The show was never aired, because the outcome was anything but expected. Jonathan snapped and shot Scott Amedure in his home just three days after the show. Throughout the episode we will discuss the negligence throughout the case on the part of the Jenny Jones Show, the gay panic defense and the the negative aspects of ambush television.If you want more on this case check out:Bailey Sarian’s Mystery & Makeup The bizarre Jenny Jones Case: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kyyp5UmPeJE Netflix doc, Trial by Media: https://www.netflix.com/watch/81025114?trackId=13752289&tctx=0%2C0%2Cd7d3fd5f613b5668299a760a5bb9bb444f52f0e0%3A05f1f10a7c34a8ab33d70f6b9203e224922969dd%2Cd7d3fd5f613b5668299a760a5bb9bb444f52f0e0%3A05f1f10a7c34a8ab33d70f6b9203e224922969dd%2C%2CAs always, thank you to our sponsors! Better Help: Visit betterhelp.com/Morbid and join the over 1,000,000 people taking charge of their mental health with the help of an experienced professional.

If you grew up in the 90s, Matthew Shepard's face is something that has probably stayed with you since his murder on October 6, 1998.Matthew was lured from a bar in Laramie, Wyoming by Aaron McKinney and Russell Henderson. Their intent was to pose as gay men and rob Matthew. What occurred was much more than robbery. They used a .357 magnum revolver to beat him to death, tying him to a buck fence and leaving him to die for 18 hours in the freezing Wyoming cold. His death was a scream for stronger legislation of hate crimes, particularly against the LGBTQ+ community. In Part 1, we discuss Matt's life, his murderer's lives and his brutal assault.

Just a quick discussion about the latest breaking news that happened a couple of days after we posted our Lori Vallow episodes! Tylee and JJ's bodies were confirmed to have been discovered buried in Chad Daybell's back yard. Will Lori admit her part or will she flip on her doomsday partner? This is the case that keeps on twisting. 
What a story this is, guys. Lori Vallow's saga is still going on and we seem to be no closer to answers than where it all started. In Part 2 of this crazy tale, we meet her husband Chad, we hear about his shady past and we wonder where the hell her children Tylee and JJ could be. Why is it that people around this couple tend to die or disappear? Is it bad luck or is a death cult? The questions keep piling up while the answer pile stays thin. Hopefully we will be able to update this episode soon with some good news or at least some closure. Step into Lori Vallow's world on mayhem, but don't say we didn't warn you.

This is a very recent and ongoing case that has baffled almost everyone who has heard of it. Lori Vallow made headlines in the end of 2019, when her two children, 17 year old Tylee and 8 year old JJ disappeared, seemingly into thin air. With reports circulating that she told witnesses stories like her children were long dead or staying with relatives who confirmed they were not, things look like they are going from bad to worse. But where are Tylee and JJ? Who is Lori Vallow and why has death and destruction followed her for years? In Part 1, Ash takes us through Lori Vallow's life, as well as her first 4 marriage and a possible murder.

It's finally here! We have threatened to share your listener tales of true crime and general spookiness for over a year now and we have finally done it. In Episode 1 of Listener Tales, we are going to hear about a Pet Cemetery cat, a trip into the Black Forest in Germany, a couple of terrifying ghosts, an unsolved child murder and a near miss with a machete. It's intense, it's hilarious at times and it will probably give you nightmares. Come on in!Today's sponsors are:Daily Harvest!

In the conclusion of this disgusting story, Ash and Alaina discuss Kristen French and Leslie Mahaffy's tragic last days and lament over The Deal With The Devil. Things don't get any better in this half of the tale, but at least Karla has jowls now.
Canadians, you know this case all too well. It is vile, horrific and unjust to say the least. Karla Homolka and her husband Paul Bernardo AKA "The Scarborough Rapist" terrorized and murdered young women in Ontario during the late 80s/early 90s, including Karla's own younger sister, until they were finally stopped and locked up for good....at least one of them was. In this two part investigation into their life and crimes, things are definitely going to get uncomfortable and disturbing. So, listener beware. We will give plenty of warning when things are going to get brutal.
Rod Ferrell was a special kind of jerk. Convinced he was a 500 year old vampire named Vesago living in a 16 year old boy's body, he took his otherworldly fantasies to the brink by carrying out two senseless, brutal murders. He didn't just kill anyone, though. By his own admission, he murdered the parents of one of his cult followers for the rush of it. Does he care? Nope. Does he still think he is a 500 year old vampire? Yup. This one is a trip, guys.
Finland, you really outdid yourself with this one. As one of the most infamous crimes in Finnish history, this triple homicide remains a mystery to this day. Sure, several suspects have been brought to the table but none have been formally charged for very long. With a bumbling investigation and a host of strange occurrences surrounding this case. It may remain just that: A mystery. Today we will shed some light on this creepy case and try to give our best guest about what happened. Enjoy, weirdos.
