Twelve true crime stories of murder and mayhem. Fifth audiobook of the True Crime Case Histories Series (2020).

Those of you familiar with my previous books in the True Crime Case Histories series know that I always start off with a quick word of warning: Real true crime isn’t for everyone. Television shows and newspaper articles often gloss over the shocking details because it may be too grisly for the average viewer or reader.

When researching these stories, I commonly use actual police reports, court documents, and first-hand descriptions. Some of the details can be disconcerting. I do my best to not leave out any of the details in my audiobooks, no matter how depraved they may be. My intent is not to shock, but to show precisely how twisted the mind of a killer can be.

That being said, if you are overly squeamish, this may not be the audiobook for you. If you’re okay with it, then let’s proceed.

Volume five features: Longer stories, more photos, a bonus section, and an online appendix with additional photos, videos, and documents.

Volume five features 12 of the most incomprehensible stories of the last 50 years. 

A sampling of the stories include:

In this audiobook, you’ll read about a young, intelligent man that would rather kill his entire family with a crossbow than tell his girlfriend that he had been lying to her. You’ll also read of the suburban housewife that endured t30 years of an abusive relationship before smashing her husband’s skull with a hammer.

There’s the story of the Amish man, tormented by the threat of Hell, that killed his wife because he thought she was the devil. There’s also the Roman Catholic priest that ritualistically butchered a nun, stabbed an upside-down cross into her chest, and anointed her with her own blood.

Three stories in this volume take place in Washington State, one of which is of a young girl that ran away from her Seattle home in the 1970s. For 30 years, her parents believed she was a victim of Ted Bundy, until the real killer was finally caught. In another, a sexual sadist fancied himself a werewolf while he stalked and butchered his prey in unspeakable ways.

The stories in this volume are shocking and disturbing, but they’re also true. These things really do happen in the world. We may never understand why killers do what they do, but at least we can be better informed.

Plus many more disturbing stories.

The stories in this volume are revolting and disconcerting, but they’re true. These things really happen in the world. Though we will never fully understand the criminal mind, at least we can be better informed.
