Brittany Murphy was a rising star who had it all, beauty, fame, and success … but she also had secrets. When she was found dead in her Los Angeles home at just 32 years old, Hollywood and legions of fans are left in disbelief. While her autopsy revealed that she died of natural causes, many believe foul play was involved. Details of her life and death emerge after her husband, Simon Monjack, and mother, Sharon Murphy, embark on a bizarre media blitz, creating more questions than answers. Then, within months, Monjack perishes under strikingly similarly circumstances – in the same bed he and Brittany once shared, only this time, allegedly with Brittany’s mother sleeping beside him.

YOU GUYS, DO YOU HAVE A PC? I PROMISE I WON’T TELL GILLIAN? Gringo tells the story of John McAfee who invented anti-virus software, AND AS BORING AS THAT SOUNDS, I PROMISE THIS IS ANYTHING BUT!

He gets mixed up in drug trafficking, sex offender shit, AND MURDERS HIS NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR. Ugh, it’s a lot.

YOU GUYS WE REALLY LIKE THIS ONE!! WE ALMOST NEVER SAY THAT! Marvin Heemeyer was a beloved resident of Granby, Colorado. He was a welder by trade and he loved his work. But slowly he came to believe that the town was out to get him. And then, according to Marvin, God told him to “get” the town first. So he bought a bulldozer and secreted himself away. For months he worked on the “Dozer” turning it into killing machine that the media would call a Kill-Dozer. And on June 4, 2004, he took his sixty-three ton machine on a rampage of the town. And the footage is as unbelievable as the story. LOOKING FOR MORE TCO? On our Patreon feed (https://www.patreon.com/TrueCrimeObsessed) , you'll find over 100 FULL BONUS episodes to BINGE RIGHT NOW!

In 2003, The Dixie Chicks were on top of the world. They were the number 1 selling female band of all time, They were Grammy winners, and all around darlings of the country music scene. But then, at a club date in London, the band's lead singer, Natalie Manines, told the crowd that the band was "ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas." The backlash from their American fans was immediate. People burned their CDs, country music stations banned their music, and the band members received death threats. And we have A LOT to say about all of it WARNING! PLEASE READ BEFORE LISTENING! It won't come as a shock that this episode deals with politics. It also won't come as a shock that Patrick and Gillian love the Dixie Chicks and think they were on the right side of history. Patrick and Gillian also believe that if you disagree with them, you are entitled to your opinion. Believe it or not, we don't get too into the politics here, though, obviously it's in there. We hope all of our listeners can enjoy this episode. However, if the discussion of Bush-era politics and hearing Natalie Maines call The President a dumb fuck is going to upset you, no hard feelings if you want to skip this one. LOOKING FOR MORE TCO?

In 2001, Robert Fisher murdered his wife and two young kids. And then vanished into thin air.

But on Thanksgiving weekend in 1981, she disappeared from the yacht she was sharing with her husband Robert Wagoner and actor CHRISTOPHER FREAKING WALKEN.

For 13 summers, Timothy Tredwell journeyed into the Alaskan wilderness to spend four months living among the grizzly bears. Though Treadwell believed that he and the bears had an understanding--he considered them his close friends--he and his girlfriend Amy Huguenard were eventually killed and devoured by one of the bears. For the five summers before his death, he took a video camera on his trips and shot over 100 hours of tape. "Grizzly Man", the brilliant documentary by master filmmaker Werner Herzog, tells the story of Treadwell's fascinating life and terrifying death--and uses much of treadwell's own footage to do so.   LOOKING FOR MORE TCO?

Suddenly, a hand appeared and deranged man disguised as a clown pulled himself out from beneath her bed. Afterward, similar videos started appearing online—a terrifying looking clown pushing a cart in a parking lot, waving alongside a busy highway, holding balloons in front of a suburban home, and, most shocking of all, terrorizing a family who had gathered for a game night.

Israel Keyes is the most terrifying serial killer you’ve maybe never heard of.  Here’s what we know about him: He was methodical—he left “kill kits” hidden all across the country. He hid them years before using them, so he was also patient and self controlled. He picked his victims at random to avoid detection and is believed to have murdered at least 11 people across the United States between 2001 and 2012. He was a meticulous serial killer who constantly morphed his modus operandi and the location in which he killed which helped him evade capture for years.  In this bone chilling documentary, we actually see him kidnap his final victim, and we watch him being arrested. We go into the interrogation room with him as the police and FBI try to get the names and locations of his victims. But it’s all a game to Keyes, and he’s only willing to divulge a few of his secrets. LOOKING FOR MORE TCO? WHO COULD BLAME YOU!

FAM!! Lady RuPaul (Charles) herself narrates this one!! This episode is an affectionate look at everyone's favorite televangelist / Gay Icon / Face Tattoo-er, Tammy Faye Bakker. The eldest of eight children in rural Minnesota, Tammy Faye married Jim Bakker in 1960, and soon they found a following on the gospel circuit. Riding a tide of religious fundamentalism, the Bakkers reached their gaudy heights with the PTL Network and the spinoff Christian theme park Heritage USA. Then the roof caved in. Jim was forced to pay hush money to future Playboy centerfold , Jessica Hahn, and then was submitted to rival Jerry Falwell's hostile take-over of the network. Soon Jim was in jail for fraud, and Tammy was at Betty Ford for addiction to prescription drugs. You guys, We have A LOT to say about this one. LOOKING FOR MORE TCO? WHO COULD BLAME YOU!

THIS IS NOT A DRILL! AND THIS IS NOT A RERUN! For our 100th episode, we're remaking our very first episode AND IT MIGHT BE OUR FUNNIEST, MOST PERFECT EPISODE YET! Nicholas Barclay was 13 years old on the day he disappeared—June 13, 1994. Three and a half years later he is found alive, thousands of miles away in a village in southern Spain. He says he was kidnapped and has suffered unimaginable torture. His family is overjoyed to bring him home.

Their crimes resemble high-octane Hollywood action movies: a sports car speeds through a Dubai shopping mall, crashing into the windows of a Graff jewelry store. Masked, gun-wielding men jump out of the car and stuff fistfuls of diamonds into their satchels before screeching off. In London, they took all of three minutes to make off with $30 million in diamonds. Dubbed the Pink Panthers, they're captured - on surveillance tapes that record their astonishing lightning strikes with hypnotic accuracy. We see the tapes and we meet the thieves and hear about their heists in their own words. LOOKING FOR MORE TCO? WHO COULD BLAME YOU!

Determined to get him back, Joyce set off on a journey that would lead her across the globe, into jail, and onto the front pages of the most popular tabloids of the time. Her crusade for love took her through a surreal world of kidnapping, manacled Mormons, risqué photography, magic underwear, and celestial sex. Oh AND to the 1977 after party for the film “Saturday Night Fever.” * * * **LOOKING FOR MORE TCO?

Southwest of Salem: The Story of the San Antonio Four excavates the nightmarish persecution of Elizabeth Ramirez, Cassandra Rivera, Kristie Mayhugh, and Anna Vasquez - four Latina lesbians wrongfully convicted of gang-raping two little girls in San Antonio, Texas. The film begins its journey inside a Texas prison, after these women have spent nearly a decade behind bars. They were 19 and 20 years old at the time the allegations surfaced. Using the women's home video footage from 21 years ago combined with recent verité footage and interviews, the film explores their personal narratives and their search for exculpatory evidence to help their losing criminal trials. **LOOKING FOR MORE TCO?** WHO COULD BLAME YOU!

Who killed Marsha P. Johnson? When the beloved, self-described "street queen" of NY's gay ghetto was found floating in the Hudson River in 1992, the NYPD chalked it up as a suicide and refused to investigate. But Marsha was a lover of life and many who knew her refused to believe she would have taken her own life.  Now, a quarter century later, at a time of unprecedented visibility and escalating violence in the transgender community, Marsha's old friend and fellow activist Victoria Cruz has taken it upon herself to reexamine what happened to Marsha. Dipping deep into jaw-dropping archival footage of another era of New York City life, The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson follows as this champion pursues leads, mobilizes officials, and works to tell the story of Marsha's life and get to the bottom of Marsha's death.

GAYS! DRAG QUEENS! LIZA! DISCO! DRUGS! TAX FRAUD! DO I REALLY NEED TO GO ON? Studio 54 was the epicenter of 70s hedonism--a place that not only redefined the nightclub, but also came to symbolize an entire era. Its co-owners, Ian Schrager and Steve Rubell, two friends from Brooklyn, seemed to come out of nowhere to suddenly preside over a new kind of New York society. Now, 39 years after the velvet rope was first slung across the club's hallowed threshold, a feature documentary tells the real story behind the greatest club of all time and the crimes that brought it down. **LOOKING FOR MORE TCO?

He terrorizes south Florida where he takes at least 6 more victims. When he's finally caught, he decides to represent himself in court--in America's first-ever televised murder trial--and the shenanigans that ensue are almost too bizarre to be believed. On the 30th anniversary of his Florida execution, CONVERSATIONS WITH A KILLER: THE TED BUNDY TAPES brings the infamously twisted mind of serial killer Ted Bundy into the light for the very first time in a fresh yet terrifying way through exclusive, never-before-heard interviews from the "Jack the Ripper of the United States," himself. This unique and gripping doc series, focuses on the man whose personality, good looks and social graces defied the serial-killer stereotype, allowing him to hide in plain sight as he committed the brutal sex-crime slayings of more than 30 women before being caught in 1978.  **LOOKING FOR MORE TCO?** [Binge our 50+ bonus episodes via Patreon!](https://www.patreon.com/TrueCrimeObsessed) When you join our Patreon fam, you not only support us, you also **INSTANTLY** get our entire catalog of bonus episodes, including our episode-by-episode coverage of **"SERIAL," "THE JINX," "THE STAIRCASE," and "MAKING A MURDERER."** New FULL EPISODES are added each week AND IT'S ALL COMMERCIAL FREE!

The following week, we'll cover episodes 3 & 4! **Mommy Dead And Dearest:** Late on the evening of June 14, 2015, deputy sheriffs in Greene County, Missouri, found the body of Dee Dee Blancharde laying facedown in a pool of blood from the stab wounds that had killed her several days earlier. There was no sign of her teenage daughter, Gypsy Rose, who, according to Blancharde, suffered from leukemia, asthma, muscular dystrophy, and several other chronic conditions, and had the mental capacity of a 7-year-old. In the days and weeks that followed, the police came to understand the crime and the treacherous web of lies, child abuse, mental illness, and forbidden love that set the stage for this horrendous and brutal murder.  [This week on Patreon](https://www.patreon.com/TrueCrimeObsessed/posts), we're dropping the F**ULL VIDEO OF LAST WEEK'S LIVE SHOW!** We'll also be dropping the live show in podcast form on the [Patreon podcast feed](https://www.patreon.com/TrueCrimeObsessed/posts)!

For 13 summers, Timothy Tredwell journeyed into the Alaskan wilderness to spend four months living among the grizzly bears. Though Treadwell believed that he and the bears had an understanding--he considered them his close friends--he and his girlfriend Amy Huguenard were eventually killed and devoured by one of the bears. For the five summers before his death, he took a video camera on his trips and shot over 100 hours of tape. "Grizzly Man", the brilliant documentary by master filmmaker Werner Herzog, tells the story of Treadwell's fascinating life and terrifying death--and uses much of treadwell's own footage to do so.   **WANT MORE TCO?** Who cold blame you!

The Fyre Festival was the defining scam of the millennial generation. Marketing for the 2017 music event went viral with the help of rapper Ja Rule, instagram stars, and models, but wound up being an epic failure as it stranded thousands of people in the Bahamas. **Featuring an exclusive interview with Billy McFarland**, the convicted con-man behind the festival, FYRE FRAUD is a true-crime comedy documentary bolstered by a cast of whistleblowers, victims, and insiders.

Seinfeld mocked it. Letterman ranked it in his top ten list. And more than fifteen years later, its infamy continues. Everyone knows the McDonald's coffee case. It has been routinely cited as an example of how citizens have taken advantage of America's legal system, but is that a fair rendition of the facts? Hot Coffee reveals what really happened to Stella Liebeck, the Albuquerque woman who spilled coffee on herself and sued McDonald's, while exploring how and why the case garnered so much media attention, who funded the effort, and to what end. This week's palate cleanser: Doctor's Orders from the musical Catch Me if You Can.

In the summer of 1977, Jim Jones, leader of The Peoples Temple, moved nearly 1,000 of his followers to a plot of land in Guyana, South America. Less than a year later, on November 18, 1978, 908 of the followers died after drinking Kool-Aid laced with poison. Was it murder or suicide?

BEWARE THE SLENDERMAN tells the story of the internet's elusive Boogeyman and two 12-year-old girls who would kill for him. Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier lured their best friend into the woods, stabbed her 19 times, then set out on an odyssey to meet the tall and faceless man known online as Slenderman. Shot over 18 months with heartbreaking access to the families of the would-be murderers, the film plunges deep down the rabbit hole of their crime, a Boogeyman. and our society's most impressionable consumers of media.

On November 22, 1963, John F. Kennedy, President of the United States, was assassinated in broad daylight in front of hundreds of people--at least 55 of whom were filming or taking pictures. And yet we still don't know what happened. Lee Harvey Oswald was the prime suspect. But then he too was killed in the middle of the day in front of almost 100 people.  Was it a lone gunman? The CIA? Fidel Castro? And will we every know the truth? We have some thoughts..... This week's Palate Cleanser is from the 2004 Broadway Cast Recording of "Assassins" and features Neil Patrick Harris and Dennis O'Hare.

On October 17, 1974, 12 year old Jan Broberg was kidnapped by her next door neighbor and parents’ best friend—a man they all loving called “B.” B, unbeknownst to them, was a pedophile who had become obsessed with Jan and would stop at nothing to have her. This story is so full of of jaw-dropping twists, you really do have to hear it to believe it.  OOH! It's important to note that Jan today is alive and well (and looking like a million bucks). She is one of the major story tellers here, and goddamn is she a force to be reckoned with.

EVERYONE BE COOL, KATHLEEN ZELNER IS IN THE HOUSE!!! Before she became a household name with her work on the Steven Avery case in season 2 of "Making A Murderer," Kathleen Zelner used her brilliant, no-nonsense bad-assery to exonerate Ryan Ferguson. Ferguson had been convicted in 2005 at the age of 19 of a murder he didn't commit. There was no physical evidence, the "eye witnesses" were unreliable to say the least, and Ferguson was failed by an incompetent lawyer. AND. KATHLEEN. ZELNER. IS. NOT. HERE. FOR. IT.  Come for Zelner, but stay for Ryan's dad who's a super adorable Inspector Gadget type who learns how to use google and get on the online in an obsessive attempt to save his son.

In 2015, NYC Police Officer Gilberto Valle was convicted of conspiring to kidnap and eat young women. YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT: KIDNAP AND EAT. Valle argued it was all a fantasy; the prosecution's narrative convinced jurors otherwise. Valle was facing a possible life sentence when filmmaker Erin Lee Carr began visiting him in prison to make this film. There’s no way around it, you guys, this one is full of garbage—the cannibal cop himself (CANNIBAL COP, YOU GUYS), his enabling parents, and the filmmaker who never really tries to understand WHY and/or HOW Valle came to be the way he is. But don’t worry, there’s lots of good New York Post headlines….and one fabulous glamor shot. **LOOKING FOR MORE TCO?** [Binge our 40+ bonus episodes via Patreon](https://www.patreon.com/TrueCrimeObsessed)! When you join our Patreon fam, you not only support us, you also INSTANTLY get our entire catalog of bonus episodes, including **our episode-by-episode coverage of "SERIAL," "THE JINX," and "THE STAIRCASE."** You also get our interviews with **Asia McClain** (Adnan Syed's alibi witness), **Rabia Chaudry**, **"Tower" director Keith Maitland**, all of our mini-episodes, extended outtakes, AND full bonus episodes covering "Madonna: Truth or Dare" and "The Queen of Versailles." **AND IT'S ALL COMMERCIAL FREE!** [Join here!](https://www.patreon.com/TrueCrimeObsessed) **Want to see us LIVE?** [Go Here](https://www.truecrimeobsessed.com/see-us-live) for information and tickets to our upcoming live events like our **February live shows** or our **Pride show** in June! **Looking for our Advertisers / Promo Codes?** [Go Here!](https://www.truecrimeobsessed.com/get-our-promo-codes) We now have a whole page of our site for you to check out and [GET.

THIS EPISODE IS RIPPED FROM THE HEADLINES, YOU GUYS! In 2013, James (Whitey) Bulger, the South Boston mobster, was captured after 16 years on the lam. He was finally brought to justice for a murderous reign of terror that inspired books, films and a saga of Irish-American brotherhood and brutality. Last month (October of 2018) he was found beaten to death in a West Virginia prison. He was 89. This documentary tells the story of Whitey’s rise to power in South Boston, his dealings with the FBI during that time, it tackles questions of his relationship with the FBI. The film ultimately deals with his capture, trial, and--for lack of a better term--legacy. Whatever, any way you slice it, he was garbage. **LOOKING FOR MORE TCO?** [Check out our bonus episodes on Patreon!](https://www.patreon.com/TrueCrimeObsessed) We covered **"Serial"** episode-by-episode and capped the series off with an interview with **Rabia Chaudry**--Adnan's friend who brought his story to Sarah Koenig AND with **Asia Mcclain**--Adnan's alibi witness!

This week we're revisiting one of our most popular episodes!  A decade after making the documentary film “Aileen Wuornos: The Selling of a Serial Killer” about serial killer Aileen Wuornos, director Nick Broomfield was subpoenaed as a witness for Aileen’s final appeal in overturning her death sentence. When he became a participant in Aileen’s legal fight, Broomfield decided made this new documentary which looks at Aileen's violent, tortured childhood in Troy, Michigan and her subsequent years on the road as a hitch-hiking prostitute which culminated in her committing seven murders in the span of one year. For the documentary, Aileen granted Broomfield exclusive interviews in order to share her side of the story—conspiracy theories and all—as she prepared to be executed.  **LOOKING FOR MORE TCO?** [Check out our bonus episodes on Patreon!](https://www.patreon.com/TrueCrimeObsessed) We covered **"Serial"** episode-by-episode and capped the series off with an interview with **Rabia Chaudry**--Adnan's friend who brought his story to Sarah Koenig AND with **Asia Mcclain**--Adnan's alibi witness!

In 1975, the Lutz family moved into the old house at 112 Ocean Avenue in Amittyville, New York. The house was beautiful, nestled in the heart of an affluent neighborhood, it had a pool and a dock, and best of all, the family had gotten it at a staggeringly low price. **The only catch—a family of five had been brutally murdered there the year before.** According to the Lutz family, for the 28 days they lived in the home, they were tormented by ghosts and possessed by demons. They were thrown up the stairs, terrorized by mysterious creatures, and were levitated 13 feet into the air. In “My Amittyville Horror,” Daniel Lutz, who was 9 at the time, tells his version of the terrifying story for the first time.

There’s no way around it, you guys: There is definitely a PORTAL TO HELL under the basement stairs in a crappy rental house in Gary, Indiana. It’s definitely definitely real, and I know this because that bro The Travel Channel--the one with the ghost hunter show or whatever-- said so. And so did the 12-foot goat-man who haunts his dreams. And he has NOTHING TO GAIN BY MAKING THIS WHOLE THING UP! Once again, we haaaaaaaaaaated this movie, so you know the episode is going to be hilarious. Zak Bagans buys the ‘haunted’ house, a little boy gets possessed and walks up a wall, and a cameraman turns evil. That’s about it. Oh and Patrick tries out the word “Bro” (it doesn’t go great) and Gillian laughs so hard she nearly chokes. **LOOKING FOR MORE TCO?** [Check out our bonus episodes on Patreon!](https://www.patreon.com/TrueCrimeObsessed) We covered **"Serial"** episode-by-episode and capped the series off with an **interview** with **Rabia Chaudry**--Adnan's friend who brought his story to Sarah Koenig AND with **Asia Mcclain**--Adnan's alibi witness!

YOU GUYS!!! A few weeks ago we got the chance to sit down with "Tower" director Keith Maitland for full interview about the film. [That interview is now live on the Patreon feed.](https://www.patreon.com/posts/21993766)We chatted about how he made the film, how he tracked down the victims and won their trust, how he learned about the tower shooting as kid and why is stuck with him for decades before he finally made the film, and how it was to tell the story of the shooting--the first-ever mass school shooting--as the story had been something of a state secret for nearly 50 years. We play a 3-minute clip of the interview at the end of the episode.  We wanted to rebroadcast this episode today so you could listen before listening to the interview with Keith! [So jump on over to the patreon feed and check it out!](https://www.patreon.com/posts/21993766) You guys, THIS EPISODE IS ALSO WHERE THE HERO BELL MAKES IT'S BEAUTIFUL DEBUT! Here's the original description of the episode: On August 1, 1966, a sniper rode the elevator to the top floor of the iconic University of Texas Tower and opened fire, holding the campus hostage for 96 minutes in what was a previously unimaginable event. Based entirely on first person testimonies from witnesses, heroes, and survivors, TOWER combines archival footage with rotoscopic animation to tell the story of that day. The film highlights the fear, confusion, and visceral realities that changed the lives of those present, and the rest of us, forever - a day when the worst in one man brought out the best in so many others.

You guys, we've covered A LOT of garbage on this podcast, but somehow THIS insanity is the first one to warrant an actual trigger warning. So here's the head up, THESE BITCHES think abortion, sexual assault, rape, incest, school shootings, racism, homophobia, hate speech and AIDS are HILARIOUS! So they talk about it a lot. IN THE LEAST. SENSITIVE. WAY. POSSIBLE.  So now, welcome behind the scenes of Hell House--a 'haunted house' where a bunch of SUPER JUDGY kids from a Dalas Pentecostal church play out depictions of Hell as they imagine it. You guys, this is "Glee" on, like, steroids. If steroids made you terrible, boring, sheltered, racist, and annoying.

First things first, you guys…WE HAAAAAAAAAAAATED THIS MOVIE….which is good news because we have SHIT. TO. SAY. In the mood for a great movie about a suuuuper scary exorcism? GO WATCH THE EXORCIST AND SKIP THIS GARBAGE ALL TOGETHER (but don’t be a monster, listen to the episode.) So whatever, the guy who directed The Exorcist gets invited to witness and record an exorcism. He fakes a lot of the audio (WE’RE GUESSING, LAWYERS, DON’T COME FOR US) and then FORGETS HIS CAMERA when he goes to interview THE POSESSED WOMAN and has an ACTUAL SUPERNATURAL ENCOUNTER in a 12th century church. We call bullshit. **LOOKING FOR MORE TCO?** Check out our [bonus episodes on Patreon!](https://www.patreon.com/TrueCrimeObsessed) We covered **"Serial"** episode-by-episode and capped the series off with an **interview with Rabia Chaudry**--Adnan's friend who brought his story to Sarah Koenig **AND with Asia Mcclain**--Adnan's alibi witness!

In 1930 4 SUPER grumpy people moved to the Galapagos Islands’ most deserted, most isolated, most remote outpost (that is Patrick you’re hearing having the GAYEST panic attack at the thought). Not only did the all HATE each other, they were bored to death. Enter the Baroness and her two….boyfriends? Gay best friends? Slaves? Nobody really knows, BUT WHO CARES BECAUSE THEY WERE FABULOUS AND FUN AND THE BARONESS IS TOTALLY NOT HERE FOR YOUR SHIT. But then people started to disappear. And die. Coincidence? We may never know. **LOOKING FOR MORE TCO?** Check out our [bonus episodes on Patreon!](https://www.patreon.com/TrueCrimeObsessed) We covered **"Serial"** episode-by-episode and capped the series off with an interview with **Rabia Chaudry**--Adnan's friend who brought his story to **Sarah Koenig** AND with **Asia Mcclain**--Adnan's alibi witness!

Look, the specifics of this story are confusing AF. BUT at the heart of it, we’re dealing with a murder, a wrongful conviction, a false confession and A. WOMAN. NAMED. SHAWN. (She’s garbage, but we’re obsessed with the gender swapping name situation.). With his execution just 48 hours away, Anthony Porter's life was saved by a Northwestern University journalism class. Their re-investigation of the crime for which he was convicted-a double homicide in a Chicago park-led to the discovery of the real killer, Alstory Simon, whose confession exonerated Porter. If it all sounds too good to be true, it's because, as compellingly argued here, Porter actually is guilty, Simon is an innocent man and both are just pawns in a much larger plan. **LOOKING FOR MORE TCO?** [Check out our bonus episodes on Patreon](https://www.patreon.com/TrueCrimeObsessed)!
