15 - Tommy Lynn Sells

Tommy Lynn Sells was charged with murder, rape and attempted murder for crimes that he committed in 1999, however, he has confessed to being responsible for over 70 murders, a claim which has never been confirmed. His official victim count stands at 22, making him an extremely dangerous serial killer. Could this Oakland, California born serial killer be one of the most prolific of all time?

Doe Diaries #1 - The Bear Brook Jane Does

The Doe Diaries is a series by The True Crime Witch Podcast that explores all of the John/Jane Doe cases solved in 2019. On November 10th, 1985 a hunter was making his way through Bear Brook State Park in Allenstown, New Hampshire when he came across a burnt down store. Near the store, he found a 55-gallon metal drum. Inside the barrel were the remains of a woman and a young girl wrapped in plastic and stuffed inside. Both of the victims had died as a result of blunt force trauma. It wasn’t until May 9th, 2000 that a second set of Jane Does would be found near the original discovery site of the Bear Brook Jane Does. This was also another 55-gallon metal drum with the bodies of two children inside. Their cause of death was also blunt force trauma. Episode 1 will explore the search for answers as to the identities of the Bear Brook Jane Does and the fight for justice in their case.

17 - The West Alton Jane Doe

February 1st 1968 started out like any other for two fishermen at Alton Lake, St Charles County, Missouri. The pair spotted a black suitcase that was floating about 12 feet from the bank, which is located near the south end of the Lewis and Clarke Bridge, just of US Highway 67. They probably thought they might find some hidden gems or merely some rubbish that someone had wanted to dispose of. What they found, was not a hidden gem nor rubbish, it was the body of a toddler who would come to be known the West Alton Jane Doe. The mystery would span over 51 years without so much as a clue as to the identity of The West Alton Jane Doe or her killer. As the unsolved case continues into its 52nd year, will 2020 finally bring investigators and the local community the answers it has been praying for over half a century?

Episode 13 - Her name is Peggy Lynn Johnson, Racine County Jane Doe.

Racine County, situated in South Eastern Wisconsin with a population of around 195,000 as of 2010 and around 185,000 in 1999. With a dense suburban feel and most people owning their own property, the county had a small and homely feel. The small town of Raymond, Racine County had a tiny population of just 3,516 in the year 2000, adding to the sense of safety and security for its residents. The illusion of the small town safety was shattered on July 21st 1999 with a horrific discovery that would haunt the Racine County Police Department for over 20 years. At around 06:15am on July 21st 1999 a man was walking with his dog along 92nd Street which is situated along 6 Mile Road and 7 Mile Road in the small town of Raymond, Wisconsin. In amongst a cornfield he discovered the body of a young woman who had clearly suffered before her passing.

Doe Diaries #3 - Donna Prudhomme, The Texas Killing Fields Janet Doe.

On September 8th 1991, two people were riding their horses in a field near Calder Road, Texas when they came across the remains of a female. They called this into the local police department and the Galveston County Medical Examiners Officer was soon involved in the hopes of identifying the doe. Sadly, the medical examiner and the police were unable to identify the body found and she was given the placeholder name of Janet Doe. Janet Doe would become another victim in the infamous ‘Texas Killing Fields Case’. Time passed by with Janet’s family and all of the Agents/Detectives involved waiting patiently when in late 2019, answers finally came. Detectives and agent’s alike met with the Galveston County Medical Examiner to discuss the findings of her investigations. The medical examiner said that she had agreed with the DNA testing results and that she was actually in the process of updating Janet’s death certificate.

Her sister replied and much to Ross’ horror her suspicions were confirmed, it was human. Upon investigation, Albuquerque police discovered that between 2001 and 2005 11 women had been buried on the West Mesa by an unknown killer. Police utilised technology and did satellite scans of the area which showed tyre tracks and plots of disturbed soil where the women had been buried.

22 - The Mysterious Death of Ricky McCormick

Ricky C McCormick was born in1958 in Missouri, USA. McCormick dropped out of school without being able to fully read or write. According to his family, the most that Ricky was able to spell was his own name and often needed help filling out job applications. So when his body was found in an isolated cornfield just off Route 367 in West Alton, Missouri the case seemed an open and close drug-related homicide. That was until Police discovered a mysterious cipher on Ricky, leading them down a rabbit hole that has never been decoded. Even the FBI has been unable to crack the code found on Ricky in 1999, so what was someone who was supposedly illiterate doing with a complex cipher? This is the mysterious death of Ricky McCormick. If you have an idea how to break the code, have seen similar codes, or have any information about the Ricky McCormick case, you are urged to contact the FBI via the following link. http://forms.fbi.gov/code Alternatively, you can write to the CRRU at the following address: FBI Laboratory, Cryptanalysis and Racketeering Records Unit, 2501 Investigation Parkway, Quantico, VA 22135, Attn: Ricky McCormick Case.

Episode 12 - Autopilot | Creepy Pasta Reading

Have you ever forgotten your phone?When did you realise you’d forgotten it? I’m guessing you didn’t just smack your forehead and exclaim ‘damn’ apropos of nothing. The realisation probably didn’t dawn on you spontaneously.More likely, you reached for your phone, pawing open your pocket or handbag, and were momentarily confused by it not being there. Then you did a mental restep of the morning’s events.

Episode 11 - Cannibal Killers

The Cambridge Dictionary defines cannibalism as "A person who eats human flesh or an animal that eats the flesh of its own type." Cannibalism is the final frontier of human taboos, not only does cannibalism involve murder but the idea of eating human flesh is too much for some people to stomach. Episode 11 delves into the world of cannibalism and it's many many crimes. Come with me as I explore the different areas of cannibalism as well as examining 3 true crime cases. WARNING. This episode contains crimes against children, it won't be suitable for everyone. If you are faint of heart or have a weak stomach, click away now.
