The Murder of Alex Woodworth
On the afternoon of March 22, 2018, a young woman arrived at a remote farmhouse in Dunn County, Wisconsin. She had dried blood around her mouth and on her arms and hands. Her clothes were covered in mud, her trousers torn, and her feet were bare. She rang the doorbell rapidly, several times. When 89-year-old dairy farmer Don Sipple answered, she said she needed to be taken to hospital. On seeing the state she was in, the elderly man brought the stranger inside and called 911. The woman claimed she had been attacked, but she couldn’t remember anything - not even her name. The concerned farmer had no idea that the young woman sitting in his home was a persistent liar and, if the jury got it right, a calculated killer.

The Murders of Sumarti Ningsih and Seneng Mujiasih
In the early hours of November 1, 2014, British resident, Rurik Jutting, called the police three times to report that something had happened in his apartment on the 31st floor. At one point he claimed that special forces were surrounding him and at 3:42 am, he asked for police to come and investigate. As police headed toward the residence, Jutting, a vice president for Bank of America in Hong Kong, called his office. He warned a superior, ‘I am in a lot of trouble, you need to do something about the reputation of the bank.’ Police arrived at the building, which is only a 10-minute walk from Hong Kong’s infamous red-light district. As officers entered the building, there were no special forces operatives in, or out of sight, but police might have noticed a smell. Over the last few days, residents in the highrise had begun to notice a bad odor; like a dead animal in the building. Support this podcast at — https://redcircle.com/turnedupdead/donations

On July 28, 1996, John Copik, a fisherman of 30 years, and his son Craig, were 6 miles off the coast of Teignmouth, a picturesque town in the south-west English county of Devon. After two disappointing hauls, the father and son had taken their trawler further out to an area that wasn’t often fished known as the roughs. The move paid off and around 3:30pm, the men started to pull in their heaviest load of the day, however, any positive feelings the men had sunk when amongst the fish, the fully dressed body of a middle aged man slid out of their nets and onto the deck.

As she got closer, she could barely believe it; the young man was dead. Support this podcast at — https://redcircle.com/turnedupdead/donations
