This week we’re talking about one of the most haunted objects in the world. The Dybbuk box stepped on the ebay scene in September 2001 and nothing has ever been the same. The word, “Dybbuk” comes from Jewish folklore and literally means, “to cling.” An otherworldly spirit was captured in the box during the holocaust and when Kevin Mannis bought it at an estate sale, brought it home and opened it, his life changed forever. So did the lives of the next two owners, and anyone who has seen the movie The Possession, based on the box! Keep it weird, but not so weird that you open a cursed box and ruin your life!As always, thank you to our sponsors:Simplisafe: Go today to SimpliSafe.com/morbid and get a FREE security camera, plus a 60-day risk-free trial with any new system order.ThriveMarket: Go to ThriveMarket.com/MORBID.

It’s a haunted Morbid up in here! Alaina tells us the history and all the terrifying hauntings going on at Myrtles Plantation in Louisiana, one of the most haunted homes in America. Myrtles has been around since 1796 and some of the hauntings going on include: shaking beds, floating children, and who knows maybe the ghost of a small child will crawl into bed with you at night!? Alaina is taking applications for a pal to go with her when Rona is gone, because Ash is all set.As always, thank you to our sponsors:Gabi: Take a few minutes, right now, and stop overpaying on your car and home insurance!

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!
Sometimes justice is a plate best served cold. 20 years ago a clown knocked on Marlene Warren’s door holding balloons, flowers and something else incredibly sinister. While the clown walked calmly away to their white Chrysler Le Baron, Marlene was left lying in a pool of blood. They looked at the husband straight away, his alibi was air tight…. Or was it? Maybe his mistress Sheila Keen could offer up some information?As always thank you to our sponsors!Curology: Go to http://Curology.com/morbid for a free 30-day trial, just pay for shipping and handling!AMC Shudder: To try Shudder free for 30 days, go to http://shudder.com and use promo code morbidStamps: To try Shudder free for 30 days, go to http://shudder.com and use promo code morbid
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!

Hey you beautiful weirdos! We wanted to release the first episode of Scream! for you special ghouls to chew on. Alaina and Caleb will be diving into every kind of horror movie your twisted little minds can think of and we hope your join us for some nightmares and nostalgia! 
This week we are diving into a horrific fellow and the three murders attributed to him.

This week Alaina is diving into the Peter Tobin case! Peter Tobin, who was also known as Patrick McLaughlin, James Kelley and many other names, may have killed as many as 48. He was sentenced to life in prison and when he told investigators how many he’d killed he followed it up with “figure it out” and grinned. Lots to unpack here, and it will lead us into our next episode about Bible John, who may have actually been Peter Tobin. As always, thank you to our sponsors Upstart: See why Upstart has a 4.9 out of 5 rating on Trustpilot and hurry to Upstart.com/morbid to find out HOW LOW your Upstart rate can beThrive Market: Go to Thrive Market.com/MORBID Join today and you’ll get a FREE gift of your choosing, up to $24 dollars in value.Firstleaf: Sign up today to get 6 bottles of wine for only $29.95, plus free shipping!

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. One February evening, things went very wrong, and would eventually lead to a debate of Folie a deux vs pure evil.As always, thank you to our sponsors:Stamps: Right now, our listeners get a special offer that includes a 4-week trial PLUS free postage AND a digital scale without any long-term commitment.  Just go to Stamps.com, click on the Microphone at the TOP of the homepage and type in MORBID.Upstart:  Head to upstart.com/morbid to find out low your upstart rate can be!Hunt a killer: Right now, just for our listeners you can go to HuntAKiller.com/MORBID and use promo code MORBID at check out for 20% off your first box.Conde Naste: For a limited time you can get 12 weeks of The New Yorker for just SIX dollars – that’s a savings of 50 percent!

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!

We all have those cases that have haunted us since we first read them, and this is one of those rare nightmares that will stay with you long after you hear it.
