Podcast cover
Read more

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.

Rank #2: The Murders of David and Bobby Phillips

Podcast cover
Read more

Brothers David and Bobby Phillips were murdered near the Christmas holiday in 1992. Their parents came home to find them dead in the house. But many believe that their murders were a case of mistaken identity and were, in fact, related to the 1991 murder of husband and wife Coy and Tonya Wilkerson.

Join Mike and Morf as they discuss this twisted tale of two double murders. Police have theorized that whoever murdered the Phillips brothers were actually out to kill the parents of Tonya Wilkerson. There are many similarities in the two cases that make that theory plausible.

Rank #5: Ep71 - Dorothy Jane Scott

Podcast cover
Read more

Dorothy Jane Scott was a single mother living in Orange County, CA who vanished in 1980. Her partial remains were found years later at a construction site. Dorothy worked in the back office of a psychedelic/head shop even though, being very religious, Dorothy didn't participate in those kinds of activities. She began receiving obscene phone calls before her disappearance and her mother received them afterward.

Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the life and disappearance of Dorothy Jane Scott. Theories abound in this case. Dorothy was a single mother struggling to raise her son. Who would have wanted to kill her? Was it someone that saw her at the shop? There are some eerie parallels in this case to The Golden State killer who we have covered extensively. It is known that he was in the area around the time of Dorothy's disappearance. Could Dorothy have been a victim of GSK? Or was it one of several other potential suspects that have come up over the years.

Rank #8: Ep51 - The Amana Hatchet Murders

Podcast cover
Read more

In 1980, Roger Atkison and Rose Burkert were brutally murdered inside an Amana Holiday Inn room in Williamsburg, Iowa. As the details emerged, police realized that Roger and Rose were hundreds of miles from their homes. Not only that but Roger was married and the meeting between Roger and Rose was a romantic tryst.

This was a bizarre and baffling case from the very start and remains the same to this day. Police originally thought, based on the hotel room crime scene, that this was a crime of passion. But who knew that Roger and Rose were going to be at that hotel during that time? Were they killed by someone they knew or was this the work of a random killer?

Episode correction: The phone# for Iowa County, IA Sheriff's department for anyone with tips or information about this case is (319)642-7307

Rank #9: Ep65 - Jeffrey MacDonald Pt1

Podcast cover
Read more

We are discussing Jeffrey MacDonald and the MacDonald family murder case on this episode of Criminology. This is the first part of what will likely be 2 episodes on this infamous case. Jeffrey MacDonald was a doctor in the army stationed at Fort Bragg North Carolina with his wife and two young daughters. In the early morning hours of Feb 17, 1970, Jeffrey was wounded and his wife and two daughters were killed.

Join Mike and Morf as they discuss this murder case that gripped the nation. MacDonald has always alleged that some hippies broke in and murdered his family. But the suspicion quickly fell onto him and he was ultimately convicted of the murders. However, the road to his conviction took a number of years since the murders occurred while he was in the service. After he got out, it was tough at first for prosecutors to try him in civilian court.
