The Mad Butcher of Kingsbury Run: Clevelands Torso Murders

The Grisly story of one of Americas most evasive Serial Killers Vs one of Americas most famous crime fighters. The mad butcher carved up his victims throughout the 1930's, evading capture from an entire police department, headed up by none other than the infamous Eliot Ness. During the Great Depression times were hard and in Cleveland, they were all the more dificult as the dank, dark streets of the local shantytown were stalked by a crazed psychotic with a penchant for decapitation.

Emilie Sagée: The woman who wasn’t there

In 1845, Emilie Sagée took a job at the Neuwelcke boarding school. It was her 18th teaching position in 16 years. The girls of the school would soon find out why, when on numerous occasions, Emilie was seen wandering the halls or sitting at the front of class, even when she was known to be elsewhere. Often claimed to be the most well documented case of a doppelgänger, this week we dig deep to find the truth behind the stories.

The Crabb Affair

This episode I get stuck into The Crabb Affair, a strange disappearance from 1956, surrounded by Cold War suspicion and government cover-ups. Who doesn't love a good spy tale? Especially one that is as suspicious as this.

The intro to this episode contains a clip from a  short British Pathe film that you can see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uojs8GU3NpI

A man that, in just 2 years, was responsible for around 60% of all witch trials in England spanning 3 centuries.

We are one

The episode is a bit different this week. We hit our one year anniversary on the day of recording, so we switched it up and had the first annual Dark Histories awards, taking a little look back at some of the people we've covered in the last year and then, using listener questions, had a candid chat about behind the scenes things, taking a look back, a little look forward, talking about episodes coming up for the rest of the season as well as some of the decisions and obstacles involved with making a podcast mostly about grim subjects.
