The Cincinnati Kitchen Sink Slashing


Episode 417 takes place at the turn of the last century Cincinnati, when a man allegedly finds his wife’s brutally murdered body in the kitchen sink and his four-year-old son sound asleep in his bed. Burglars did it, the man says, but his son will tell a different story.

The Ghastly Kidnapping And Murder Of Marion Parker


Episode 415 relates one of the most difficult crimes we’ve yet to tell, a terrible kidnapping and brutal murder of 12-year-old girl by a smiling, charming monster. No other word for William Edward Hickman. The details of the crime were so disturbing that the newspapers could not report on them, but even the broad outline as presented will give you chills.

If this story has aroused your indignation and it’s still crying out for justice, check out our supplemental editions in the Safe House Salon at www.patreon.com/truecrimehistorian. The first is a report from the great pulp author Edgar Rice Burroughs, who covered the trial for the Los Angeles Examiner, and the other a first-person report from Hickman’s execution by a reporter from the San Francisco Daily News.

The Shooting Showgirls Lillian Graham And Ethel Conrad


Episode 414 tells the story of a pair of young vaudeville actresses who come up with a scheme to dupe an older former lover of a great sum of money. But when he calls their bluff, they choke and shoot the old fellow in the leg. Three times. It’s hard to find a hero in this tale. They’re all kinda skeezy.
