A Republican “law-and-order” president under fire after eight years of a Democratic leadership, citizens protesting for change as marginalized groups fought for equality, the rise of conservative populism as the working- and middle-class became concerned with the decline of “traditional” social values, environmental activism, and a country divided by all of these issues…the United States today in 2020? Not quite – try a half-century ago. True Crime Grapple takes you back 50 years to 1970 as the divisions and the disappointments suffered then are still with us today.As the world struggles with a turbulent 2020 with a pandemic and social unrest, we can see parallels to 1970 and a university in small town Ohio. At scores of American colleges, thousands of students protested President Nixon’s escalation of the Vietnam War. But at Kent State University, no one foresaw the tragic consequences of the first weekend in May 1970 that ended with “four dead in Ohio”.Show researched and written by Jim PittsNarrated by Dan Kelton Editing and music by Baba beats www.truecrime-grapple.captivate.fmhttps://truecrime-grapple.captivate.fm/listenSourcesBooks:The Kent State Massacre: The History and Legacy of the Shootings That ShockedAmerica by Charles River Editors (2014, CreateSpace Independent PublishingPlatform).Surviving: A Kent State Memoir by Paula Tucker (2019, Sunbury Press, Inc.).Tiananmen West: Why Nixon Ordered the Kent State Massacre by Jenny DeasonCopeland (2017, CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform).Newspaper Articles:“’Down With Nixon,’ Scream 500 Rioting Kent Students” by Sanford Levenson and JeffSallot, The Akron Beacon Journal, May 2, 1970.“Kent Under ‘State of Emergency’”, The Akron Beacon Journal, May 3, 1970.“KSU Rioters Put Torch to ROTC Building” by Jeff Sallot, Ray Redmond, and BobSchumacher, The Akron Beacon Journal, May 3, 1970.“4 Dead, 11 Wounded in New KSU Trouble”, The Akron Beacon Journal, May 4, 1970.“General: The Guardsmen Were Not Ordered To Fire” by Robert Batz, The AkronBeacon Journal, May 5, 1970.“’Rhodes Nixed KSU Closure’” by John de Groot, The Akron Beacon Journal, May 6,1970.“It Ended As It Began -- With Sound of Guns” by John M.

 Issei Sagawa was a small, shy, and studious man from Japan who had always been preoccupied with thoughts of eating another human being.  After moving to Paris, France, to obtain a PhD at Sorbonne University, he felt more alone and out-of-place than ever as he struggled to suppress his darkest desires.  He was never good at making friends until he met Dutch expatriate Renee Hartevelt, herself a doctoral student.  As their friendship continued over the weeks, Issei was finally coming out of his shell but not without bringing him to commit the vilest of acts on the least likely of victims.Show researched and written by Lauren DaryaniNarrated by Dan KeltonEditing and Music by Baba Beats @bvbvbeats on InstaShow promo from The Abyss pod.

Twenty-year-old Hazel Drew from East Poestenkill, New York, was well-loved by the community that knew her and noted for her beauty and kind nature.  On July 11, 1908, after years of living in nearby Troy as a domestic servant for the wealthy, Hazel’s body was discovered floating in a pond over 10 miles away in the town of Sand Lake.  Despite an intense investigation, the unusual circumstances surrounding Hazel’s death left locals wondering not just who her murderer was but if she was leading a double life. More than 100 years later, Hazel Drew’s unsolved murder has again garnered national attention with the revelation that she was the inspiration for Laura Palmer, whose murder is the central focus of the cult TV crime series Twin Peaks.Written and researched by Lauren DaryaniNarrated by Dan KeltonMusic and editing by Baba Beats.www.truecrime-grapple.captivate.fm for past episodes and social media links.Check out friends of the show Culture Rhymes W/ culture Their Insta is @crwcpodcastAnd Worse than fiction at www.worsethanfictionpodcast.comSOURCEShttps://www.thesun.co.uk/living/3564270/the-mystery-of-hazel-drew-the-real-unsolved-murder-behind-the-original-twin-peaks-series/http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4336146/The-real-life-murder-Sand-Lake-NY-inspired-Twin-Peaks.htmlBrad Dukes book - Oral Historyhttps://www.findagrave.com/memorial/36451324/hazel-irene-drewhttps://www.tvovermind.com/real-life-murder-inspired-twin-peaks/https://www.washingtonpost.com/entertainment/hazels-brutal-murder-was-all-but-forgotten-until-she-inspired-twin-peaks/2017/05/10/b0d064a4-31dd-11e7-8674-437ddb6e813e_story.html?noredirect=onhttps://members.huntakiller.com/blog-articles/the-1908-murder-that-inspired-twin-peakshttps://hazeldrew.com/women-working-in-troy-new-york-interview-kathy-t-sheehan/https://hazeldrew.com/did-a-promise-become-the-reason-for-hazel-drews-murder/https://hazeldrew.com/troy-was-booming-with-opportunity-danger/https://hazeldrew.com/category/murder-mystery-backstory/https://hazeldrew.com/hazel-drews-friend-tells-of-her-expensive-lifestyle/https://hazeldrew.com/the-mysterious-secret-life-of-hazel-drew-unfolds/https://www.vulture.com/2017/05/twin-peaks-showtime-revival-timeline.htmlhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rensselaer_Plateauhttps://hazeldrew.com/sand-lake-connection-laura-palmer/
