The .44-caliber killer, then later known as Son of Sam, David Berkowitz terrorized New York City in 1976 and 1977. He targeted individuals parked in cars on the street. The shootings appeared to police to be random which made it that much tougher for them to catch their target. He taunted the police with bizarre letters which fueled public panic even more as the press coverage heightened.

Join Mike and Morf as they discuss one of the most infamous killers in NYC history. Once caught, Berkowitz captivated the public when his reasons for the killings were revealed. He is a killer who has been studied exhaustively over the past 40+ years and his case brought about some important changes in the law regarding those that kill.

In the spring of 1992, a string of murders occurred in the Midwest. All of these murders occurred inside small businesses located near Interstate 70. All were shootings and the killer left no evidence behind. The killer targeted women alone in smaller types of stores but one man was killed during the series. The media dubbed this murderer The I-70 Killer. And then, all of a sudden, the killings stopped.

Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the murders of the I-70 Killer. Police have had suspects over the years but no one to date has been brought to justice for these murders. Similar murders have occurred along interstates in other parts of the country. Could it be that the killer changed locations but continued to kill? Or was this killer stopped in some other way?

In this episode, we're covering three separate murder cases that occurred while the victims were at rest stops. Dexter Stefonek was traveling back home to Wisconsin after visiting family in Oregon. His vehicle was found burning at a rest stop in Montana. A couple later found his body at a trash site.

Jane Snow was traveling with her two young sons in 1979 when her body was discovered by her sons inside the women's restroom at a rest stop. There have been several suspects in Jane's murder but no one has yet been brought to justice.

Gordon and Jackie McAllister were traveling through Canada in their RV when an assailant barged in and shot Jackie to death. Gordon escaped and was able to describe the attacker. Eight years later police believed they had their man, a convicted killer who had carried out similar crimes.

Rank #6: The Boca Raton Mall Murders

Podcast cover
Read more

In 2007, the affluent area of Boca Raton, Florida, experienced a number of attacks and murders that occurred at the local mall. The crimes shared eerie similarities. The perpetrator or perpetrators targeted women who drove dark expensive SUVs. The victims were bound and made to wear goggles or sunglasses that were blacked out so that they could not see. In some cases, the victims were made to drive to ATMS to withdraw money.

Join Mike and Morf as they discuss these baffling Boca Raton mall attacks and murders. These remain unsolved to this day, but a surviving victim has been able to provide a composite sketch. Are all of these crimes related or is it possible that a copycat killer emulated previous crimes? The details are so specific and similar that it's hard to believe they are unrelated and not carried out by the same killer or killers.

Rank #7: Sarah DeLeon

Podcast cover
Read more

It was 30 years ago this month that 18-year-old Sarah DeLeon was murdered after she left her boyfriend's house in the early morning hours of December 29, 1989. Police had few suspects and little evidence to go on and eventually Sarah's case went cold. Five years later, another woman named Diana Ault was murdered. Again, police struggled to solve the murder, and at the time, they had no idea there was a connection between the two cases.

Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the murder of Sarah DeLeon. Police eventually learned of the connection between the two murders. Both women had been harassed by a woman named Carol Coon and the authorities began zeroing in on Carol as a possible suspect in both murders. Carol Coon, it seems, had a habit of harassing women who were dating her former boyfriends. Was she willing to kill to eliminate romantic rivals?

Rank #8: The Villisca and Hinterkaifeck Ax Murders

Podcast cover
Read more

In this Halloween week episode of Criminology, we're discussing two horrific and infamous ax murder cases. In 1912, in Villisca Iowa, eight people were murdered in the Moore family farmhouse. All six members of the Moore family were killed along with sisters Lena and Ina Stillinger who were staying the night. In 1922, at the Hinterkaifeck farm in Bavaria, Germany, 5 members of the Gruber family and their maid were brutally murdered.

These are two very infamous unsolved cases of massacres carried out with some type of ax. And even though the two incidents occurred years apart, and far away from each, there are many similarities between the two cases. Some have theorized that they were both carried out by the same person or persons. The other thing that ties these two cases together is that they both involve a little bit of the supernatural.
