Very interesting. Enjoyed the episode of the Rane brothers

I like her easy to understand voice and found her reading captivating. Very interesting story about two disturbed brothers. What a toxic triangulated relationship they had with Paula. She fed the rejection-attraction relationship dynamic which fueled the intensity of these two psychopaths.

Love this podcast!

I’m one that listens to a lot of true crime podcasts and this is one of my favorites. They’re all interesting in their own individual ways. Quit a few stories are based in California where I’m from so I can relate to the areas these crimes took place. Keep it up! :)

Rank #1: Richard Rosario

Podcast cover
Read more

This case was brought to our attention by my Wife’s co-worker; his wife was one of the pro-bono attorneys working on Richard’s case. I am a sucker for police/prosecutorial misconduct (hey, that’s the name of our show!) and this one, in my opinion, is up there. Twenty years gone and lives forever changed. 


I have great respect for the amazing attorneys that took on his case pro-bono and the Bronx DA Darcel Clark who was willing to give this case a thorough review. Without either, he would most likely still be in jail.

On April 20th, 2009 Philip Markoff was driving on highway 95 with his fiancé Megan and they both were looking forward to getting out of town for a couple of days.


As they approached the state border of Massachusetts and Rhode Island, police lights flashed in their rear view mirror and ordered the couple to pull over.


At first they believed this was a routine traffic stop. But the police told Philip and Megan they needed to go with them to the police station. Suddenly it became very clear that this traffic stop wasn’t routine or coincidence at all. but the result of a carefully coordinated investigation finally honing in on their prime suspect.

Rank #3: Sneha Philip

Podcast cover

This case is really frustrating for me due to the lack of evidence; so much of the discussion of this case quickly turns to speculation and assumptions because there is so little to go on.

New York Magazine published an article in 2005 that details what it known about the case and Sneha’s last known whereabouts in the most complete write up I have found through my research. You can read the full article here.

Also check out her Unsolved Mysteries page and her page at the Charley Project.

Local cases are always of interest to us; we like to see what goes on in our backyard. As I researched this case, however, I found it more and more odd and with all cases where people seemingly vanish, I found it very frustrating.

I think John and Jill did have something to do with her disappearance, however. The call that is noted on the www.FindKristen.com website (click here) was the straw that broke the camels back, so to speak. 


Again, if you have any information on this case, you can contact the Oakland, CA Police Department at 510-238-3641.

Rank #6: Junko Furuta

Podcast cover
Read more

On November 25th, 1988, seventeen-year-old Junko Furuta, was walking after school. She was kidnapped by four boys and held captive for 44 days. In those 44 days, Junko would endure unthinkable brutal torture before she was killed. Sadly, there were a few people, other than the four abductors, who knew that Junko was in that house being tortured, yet she remained because they did not go to the authorities.



Her case would later be named the “concrete encased high school girl murder case” due to the state that her body was recovered in.


PLEASE NOTE: This episode is more graphic than our normal episodes; we decided we needed to share some of what was done to Junko in detail, so you can understand the brutality as well as get the full picture of the killers. We give warning before we talk aobut those details.

It would be her own friends that would turn on her and ultimately take her life. The attack Stacy suffered was long and brutal. The crime left the community shocked at the sheer magnitude of callousness and violence that was directed at one young woman. Why did they kill her? The reason would raise more questions than it would answer.

Rank #10: Neal Falls

Podcast cover
Read more

In mid July 2015 police were called to a woman’s house in West Virginia. When they arrived they were met with a hysterical woman outside saying she had fought off a man who attacked her inside her home.


When police went inside they found the body of a man in the living room. He had been shot once and was dead at the scene.


While piecing the events of the day together police quickly realized that the man had come to this woman’s house with the intention of killing her. They found evidence in his car that the attack was well planned out. And the way the woman recounted the story, it was clear this was not his first attack.



This week we will discuss what happened on that July afternoon, who the man was, and the possible scope of his crimes.

Rank #12: Cindy James

Podcast cover
Read more

This week we are discussing the mysterious death of Cindy James. Cindy was living in Canada when she began receiving disturbing phone calls. Phone calls turned to threatening letters, and that turned into weird things happening at her home. These bizarre instances culminated in Cindy being attacked on five separate occasions over seven years.



Despite all of the contact that was being made with Cindy, police were unable to ever pinpoint a suspect. Police conducted multiple in depth investigations into who could be responsible, but again, no one was identified.



Cindy’s ordeal came to a tragic end 7 years after the first phone call, but many questioned remained. Most importantly, who was responsible for the Cindy’s harassment and ultimate death? And did she do this to herself? Or did the person responsible evade capture, despite the heavy police presence?

Rank #13: Xiana Fairchild and Amber Swartz

Podcast cover
Read more

In mid-August 2000 an 8 year old girl came running into traffic. She flagged down a car and quite literally jumped through the window. She said she had been kidnapped two days earlier. Hours later the man responsible was apprehended.


After his arrest, the man started talking. Soon the talking turned to confessions for not one but eight kidnappings and murders. Two of the murders the man confessed to were two high profile kidnappings from the Bay Area that had not been solved, and one was over 10 years old.



With a list of confessions and very little evidence to go on, investigators got to work trying to corroborate this man’s story. Did law enforcement accidentally stumble upon an active serial killer? Or was this the work of someone who confessed to crimes he didn’t commit to torture families of missing persons? This week we will discuss the circumstances around the arrest and subsequent investigations.

Tonight we are discussing the case of Evelyn Hernandez. She was a 24 year old woman who was due to give birth in a week who was last seen alive on May 1st 2002 with her 5 year old son, Alexis. Her body was found floating along the Embarcadero in the San Francisco Bay on July 24th 2002 and her son has never been found. As of today, the case remains unsolved, although foul play is suspected.


5 months after Evelyn’s body was discovered in, Laci Peterson would go missing in nearby Modesto, California and coverage of the investigation would grip the nation for months. Although these cases are strikingly similar, one received worldwide attention and the other was barely covered locally. Tonight we will be discussing what happened to Evelyn and the disparities in the media coverage between the two cases.

Rank #19: Covina Massacre

Podcast cover
Read more

On the night of December 24th, 2008, a large family Christmas party was winding down. It had been another successful holiday party for the Ortega family, but shortly after 11:30 pm a man approached the residence. Once the door was opened, he forced himself in and started opening fire.


During the chaos, a call was placed to 911 that identified the shooter as the ex husband of one of the family members. Shortly after that, the house went up in flames and Pardo fled. By the end of the attack, 9 people would be dead at the hands of someone they knew. Bruce Jeffery Pardo had recently divorced his wife Sylvia and the house he attacked belonged to his ex in-laws.


By the time law enforcement tracked Pardo down, he was dead. He had killed himself shortly after the attack, but evidence showed suicide wasn’t his original plan.


Despite the divorce, anyone who knew the couple was taken aback by Pardo’s actions. Nothing about Pardo’s past suggested that he would commit such an atrocious crime, but it quickly became clear that he had been planning the attack for some time.


This week, we will go through the crime, the victims, and the man responsible. Personally, I find this case so disturbing because many of the warning signs you could look for were not there.
