Rank #1: Mystery 10: Mystic Murders

Apr 20 2018
Podcast cover
Read more

We continue our week of supernatural true crime stories with the murder of an American mystic and a clairvoyant connection from England. Jonatan's tale is of the 1929 St. Aubin Street Massacre. Was it someone who believed they'd been conned by Benny Evangelist, a follower who lost their faith or an opportunistic killing? Ana tells the infamous story of the Red Barn murder. In 1826, 25-year-old Maria disappears and her step-mother dreams of a gruesome end which leads to a shocking discovery. Did Maria connect with her step-mother from beyond the grave? And there's a short story about a ghostly car crash. If you've enjoyed the show, please share it with someone else who you think might enjoy it as well! You can always send your theories to us on Twitter (@crimebythebar) or by email (crimebythebar@gmail.com). CN: murder, decapitation, dismemberment, broken promises, paranormal

It's the beginning of a new week and we're heading down a different path in search of crimes solved by psychics. Jonatan shares the story of Terry Dewayne Smith Jr, an 11-year-old who went missing in 2013. When police can't find clues, Pam Ragland, local psychic, volunteers to help. Does her vision add anything to the case? Ana talks about a case involving a tarot reading, a murdered medium and a tip that's not taken seriously enough. In the end this case really couldn't have been solved without this clairvoyant. Full disclosure: this episode taught us we are skeptics. We round off the episode with a Mystic Ball cocktail- creamy and fruity with a tang. You can always find more details on our website, www.crimebythebar.com and reach out to us on Twitter (@Crimebythebar) or by email (crimebythebar@gmail.com).
