276: Episode 276 - Alison Botha: Left for Dead

Kidnapped, attacked and left disembowelled in the desert by two men who claimed to have been possessed by demons, Alison Botha suffered one of the most torturous ordeals we’ve ever covered. The men responsible met through a shared love of cheap drinks, sexual assault and the occult, but nothing can explain the brutality of their crimes. Welcome to a case we’ve been avoiding for years… and for good reason.

ShortHand: Josef Mengele - The Angel of Death

The Holocaust is possibly the most infamous genocide in history – and through it all, one man, in particular, stood out for his brutality. His sadistic actions, and depraved “medical experiments” during the Holocaust earned him the name “Angel of Death”, and cemented his legacy as one of the most evil men of the 20th century. This is the story of Josef Mengele.  Rolf Mengele Interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JFQaDSv1IKg

275: Episode 275 - The Assassination of Olof Palme

In February 1986, the prime minister of Sweden was walking home from the cinema, when a man stepped out of a shop doorway and shot him in the neck with a .357 Magnum. The killer ran down a side street – and disappeared without a trace. The mystery surrounding Olof Palme’s death is a Swedish national obsession that's barely left the headlines in the decades since. Hundreds of theories, from international hitmen to lone gunmen and police conspiracies, have swirled around one of the most extensive murder investigations in history. And then, in 2020, investigators called a press conference – to announce that they had finally found the killer…

ShortHand: Did Gonorrhoea Give Us Grandparents?

There are plenty of things that separate us from the animal kingdom. But one of the weirdest and most inexplicable is that we can grow so bloody old – way past reproductive age.  And one theory is that we owe our longevity to none other than the sexually transmitted infection, gonorrhoea.

Amazon Music Presents SUSPECT: Vanished in the Snow

For more than three and a half decades, the disappearance of 12-year-old Jonelle Matthews was a mystery – a riddle neither authorities nor her family members could solve. The residents of her cloistered Colorado hometown had scoured every inch of prairie. Jonelle’s face had been on milk cartons nationwide. Even the President of the United States had appealed to the public for help. Still, every lead had fizzled. Every person of interest had turned out to be a dead end.  Then, in 2019, Jonelle’s remains were unearthed near the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. With the discovery came a troubling new question: Had the truth been hiding in plain sight the entire time? Was the man who couldn’t stop obsessing over Jonelle’s disappearance also the person who took her? From Campside Media and Wondery comes season two of SUSPECT. Former CNN reporter Ashley Fantz and executive producers Matthew Shaer and Eric Benson (Suspect, Over My Dead Body) dig into one of the most mind-bending cold cases in modern history, in an attempt to separate fact and fiction, compulsion from guilt, and true-crime fandom from a motive for murder.

ShortHand: The European Witch Craze – Part 1

For over a thousand years, witches were believed to be local soothsayers who used their powers for everyday charms and spells. But in the 16th and 17th centuries, Europe was suddenly gripped by a new idea: that witches were part of an organised demonic network, plotting with the devil himself to cloud the whole world in evil. And to stop the armies of darkness, more than 200,000 people were executed across Europe for the crime of witchcraft. In the first half of our two-parter on Europe's witch hunters, H&S look at how it grew into a state-sanctioned frenzy, why it lasted for over 200 years, and some of the more gruesome torture methods they used to extract confessions...

Elizabeth Holmes and her startup, Theranos, are now infamous. With millions of lives put at risk, and hundreds of millions of dollars flushed down the toilet, they serve as the ultimate cautionary tale of “fake it till you make it” gone wrong.  But with her sentence approaching, we ask why anyone trusted Elizabeth Holmes in the first place – first with their money, and then with American lives…

Krugersdorp, a town northwest of Johannesburg, has always had high levels of violent crime. But when South Africa’s own satanic panic kicked into full force in the early 90s, its citizens had an altogether more unholy threat on their hands. This is the story of a godly rivalry that spun out of control – taking in vampires, werewolves and the murders of eleven people. And behind it all, a 48th-generational satanic witch with 1,000 multiple personalities and a score to settle. 2022 LIVE SHOW TICKET LINKS: https://redhandedpodcast.com Sources: https://www.numbeo.com/crime/in/Krugersdorp-South-Africa https://krugersdorpnews.co.za/479092/krugersdorp-crime-stats-kidnapping-rape-cit-robbery-and-theft-of-motor-vehicle-motorcycle-increase-murder-decrease/ https://www.enca.com/south-africa/krugersdorp-killings-thought-to-be-linked https://www.vice.com/en/article/5gdwp3/dr-kobus-jonker-420-v17n4 https://www.timeslive.co.za/news/south-africa/2018-10-24-there-was-darkness-over-my-child-mikeila-valentines-mother/ https://www.news24.com/you/news/local/back-from-the-dead-how-krugersdorp-killer-zak-valentine-fooled-his-family-and-friends-20210819 https://www.timeslive.co.za/news/south-africa/2019-08-12-over-protected-zak-valentine-earned-r70000-a-month-when-he-began-killing https://www.news24.com/News24/court-hears-how-krugersdorp-killers-faked-death-of-one-of-their-own-for-life-insurance-payout-20181010 https://www.numbeo.com/crime/in/Krugersdorp-South-Africa https://krugersdorpnews.co.za/479092/krugersdorp-crime-stats-kidnapping-rape-cit-robbery-and-theft-of-motor-vehicle-motorcycle-increase-murder-decrease/ https://www.enca.com/south-africa/krugersdorp-killings-thought-to-be-linked https://www.vice.com/en/article/5gdwp3/dr-kobus-jonker-420-v17n4 https://www.timeslive.co.za/news/south-africa/2018-10-24-there-was-darkness-over-my-child-mikeila-valentines-mother/ https://www.news24.com/you/news/local/back-from-the-dead-how-krugersdorp-killer-zak-valentine-fooled-his-family-and-friends-20210819 https://www.timeslive.co.za/news/south-africa/2019-08-12-over-protected-zak-valentine-earned-r70000-a-month-when-he-began-killing https://www.news24.com/News24/court-hears-how-krugersdorp-killers-faked-death-of-one-of-their-own-for-life-insurance-payout-20181010 https://www.news24.com/News24/the-krugersdorp-killings-explained-who-was-murdered-how-and-why-20190605

Every year, dozens of people travel to Aokigahara to take their lives. But why?

268: Episode 268 - Blake Leibel: A Blueprint for Evil

This case takes the notion of life imitating art to a newly macabre extreme. In 2010, Blake Leibel released his graphic novel, Syndrome. Described as The Truman Show meets Se7en, the story follows a rogue neuropathologist as he attempts to find a cure for evil, using a condemned serial killer as his guinea pig. Initially met with a lukewarm response, the novel garnered international attention in 2015 after Leibel seemed to use its most violent scenes to commit what's been described as "the most brutal murder in LA's history".

Back in 1980, he had killed an 11-year-old boy. As the therapy continued, more and more brutal confessions came, until he was linked to 39 of Sweden’s most infamous murders. He became known as the nation’s answer to Hannibal Lecter – a sadistic, cannibalistic serial-killer paedophile.  So strap in for shocking confessions, experimental psychotherapy, and a revelation that shook the Swedish justice system to its core… 2022 LIVE SHOW TICKET LINKS: https://redhandedpodcast.com Sources: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4857574/ ‘The Strange Case of Thomas Quick: The Swedish Serial Killer and the Psychoanalyst Who Created Him’ by Dan Josefsson https://www.gq.com/story/thomas-quick-serial-killer-august-2013 https://www.theguardian.com/world/2012/oct/20/thomas-quick-bergwall-sweden-murder https://www.telegraph.co.uk/films/0/thomas-quick-extraordinary-story-swedish-serial-killer-never/ https://www.theguardian.com/books/2015/oct/22/the-strange-case-thomas-quick-swedish-serial-killer-psychoanalyst-created-him-dan-josefsson-review ‘Thomas Quick: The Making of a Serial Killer’ by Hannes Råstam

In a small town in the Dominican Republic, more than one percent of boys are born as ‘Güevedoces’.

In the early morning of 1 July 2018, Gurcharan Singh went to check on his neighbours in the Burari district of Delhi. When he got there, he found a crime scene so chilling that the whole city was thrown into a frenzy.  Ten members of the Chundawat family were hanging from the ceiling. Another, the 80-year-old grandmother, was found strangled in the next room. And the police, the public, and the national media were stumped – it seemed too complex for suicide; too organised for murder. And then, they discovered a diary that changed everything… In the first case in five years of RedHanded to cause Suruthi to sleep with the lights on, we delve into the murky, ritualistic details of the Burari deaths.

Starting in June 1981, the AIDS epidemic ravaged communities all over the world. Since then, the retrovirus has taken 36.3 million lives, and there are reported to have been as many as 100 million confirmed cases the world over. Its spread through North America primarily affected the 4 Hs: homosexuals, hemophiliacs, heroin users, and Haitian immigrants. And it was reported in the international press to have all come from one man… This is the story of how that poisonous narrative – wrongly blaming one Air Canada flight attendant for a deadly epidemic – became a part of the zeitgeist. 2022 LIVE SHOW TICKET LINKS: https://redhandedpodcast.com

In the gruelling world of elite gymnastics, Larry Nassar was seen by a lot of young athletes as a friendly face in tough times. As the USA Gymnastics National Medical Coordinator, he performed treatments on children as young as ten, for almost 30 years.  And under cover of those treatments, he was routinely molesting hundreds of young girls for decades – sometimes multiple times a day, often with their parents sitting just metres away. After multiple investigations, he seemed untouchable. But thanks to the bravery of his survivors – and the discovery of three external hard drives – the world saw him for what he really was: a calculated predator, with more victims than Bill Cosby, Jerry Sandusky and Harvey Weinstein combined. Hannah and Suruthi chart the biggest sexual abuse scandal in sports history. 2022 LIVE SHOW TICKET LINKS: https://redhandedpodcast.com Sources: https://www.vox.com/identities/2018/1/19/16897722/sexual-abuse-usa-gymnastics-larry-nassar-explained The Girls, Abigail Pesta https://www.thecut.com/2018/11/how-did-larry-nassar-deceive-so-many-for-so-long.html https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2018/jan/26/larry-nassar-abuse-gymnasts-scandal-culture https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-42725339 https://www.netflix.com/title/81034185  https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-42806911 https://www.npr.org/2018/01/28/581397061/how-larry-nassars-abuse-went-on-for-so-long https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/early-lead/wp/2018/01/24/here-are-the-larrry-nassar-comments-that-drew-gasps-in-the-courtroom/ https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/03/sports/larry-nassar-gymnastics-hbo-doc.html

ShortHand: The Unabomber vs Forensic Linguistics

Ted Kaczynski’s 18-year campaign of domestic terrorism was the most expensive FBI investigation in its history. Bombs went off seemingly at random, across the US and sometimes years apart. After almost two decades, investigators were still at a loss. But when the Unabomber sent his 35,000-word manifesto to national newspapers, the FBI turned to one of the most unlikely branches of criminal investigation out there: forensic linguistics. This is the story of how word choice, syntax and even the subtleties of a person’s accent have been used through the years to bring killers to justice.

259: Episode 259 - Richard Huckle: Britain's Worst Paedophile

In October of 2019, prison officers at HMP Full Sutton in West Yorkshire discovered the body of a prisoner who'd been subjected to 89 minutes of torture before being strangled to death by another inmate. The victim was 33-year-old Richard Huckle. Dubbed by the media as "The Gap Year Paedophile", Huckle was serving a life sentence for carrying out a 9-year-long, systematic campaign of abuse against some of the world's poorest children. Huckle documented his atrocities on the dark web, authored a how-to-guide for paedophiles, and contributed to one of the largest nonce-networks ever discovered. This is the story of Richard Huckle and the incredible officers who brought him down.

258: Episode 258 - Alex Skeel: Two Years of Torture

Described by the first officer to arrive as “the worst domestic scene” they’d ever witnessed, the brutality of what Alex Skeel endured was shocking. Alex had deep gashes on his arms, burns upon burns, and according to his family, he smelt like he was dead. But his years of isolation and abuse weren’t the work of a kidnapper – they came from the woman he loved.

To some paedophile catchers like Chris Hansen are online superheroes, protecting children and putting predators behind bars.

Shorthand: Why North Sentinel Island is Forbidden

There is an island in the Bay of Bengal populated by indigenous hunter-gatherers, who live much like our ancestors did some 60,000 years ago. They’ve made it clear they want no contact with the outside world, and in the 50s, India made it illegal for anyone to go within five miles of its shoreline. But a few years ago one man, who thought he was above that rule, snuck onto the island proclaiming to the local tribe that Jesus loved them. He has never been seen again. Hannah and Suruthi explain the background to John Chau’s evangelical mission – and discuss the few people who have successfully managed to connect with this isolated group.

254: Episode 254 - Jennifer Pan: Tiger Blood

When three masked men entered the Pan family home, it seemed like an opportunistic home break-in. But on closer inspection, things just didn't add up.  Why would the would-be robbers shoot Hann and Bich Pan in cold blood, but leave their 24-year-old daughter Jennifer relatively unharmed? Why didn’t they drive off in the expensive Lexus that was parked in the drive?  And why would Hann Pan run from the house, leaving his daughter tied to a bannister?

ShortHand: Why Madeleine McCann?

When Kate and Gerry McCann put their three-year-old to bed on a family holiday in Portugal, they could never have imagined how the next 15 years of their lives would unfold. The horror of their daughter’s sudden disappearance was followed by the most infamous missing-child case in history. In that time, millions have been raised, and Maddie’s name has barely left headlines. But when more than 600 people disappear without a trace around the world every day, what was it about this story that has kept Maddie’s name in the public eye? On the first episode of our brand new show, we ask: why Madeleine McCann?

Speeding towards the ground at over 60 miles per hour, former soldier and parachute instructor Victoria Cilliers was about to make history. She would be the first person in over a decade to experience a double parachute failure.  Miraculously, she survived the impact. But when Victoria’s equipment was examined, it became clear there was more to this “freak accident” than met the eye. There were gas leaks, gaslights and grounds to divorce.

252: Episode 252 - The Murder of Sophie Lionnet: Boyzone, Babies & Broken Bones

Boyzone obsessions and black magic paedophile rings consumed the mind of Sabrina Koudier. And her neighbours turned a blind eye to the strange woman's violent outbursts and vile treatment of her au pair. It wasn't their place to get involved. But even the well-to-do residents of Southfields couldn't ignore a billowing plume of black smoke and the unmistakable smell of burning hair and flesh.

Bonus - Hollywood & Crime: The Execution of Bonny Lee Bakley

Listen here: http://wondery.fm/RH_TEOBLB On May 4, 2001, Bonny Lee Bakley was found fatally shot in a car on a dark North Hollywood street. The prime suspect was her husband, famed actor Robert Blake. But Bonny, a longtime con artist, had plenty of enemies. She left behind a trail of men she’d scammed, and she had a volatile relationship with Christian Brando, the troubled son of movie star Marlon Brando. Not since the O.J. Simpson case had the eyes of the nation been so fixated on a homicide. The search for Bonny’s killer took detectives on an eleven-month odyssey across the country and through Hollywood's underbelly of hustlers, drug addicts, and would-be hitmen. It would be the most expensive murder investigation in LAPD history to date. This is the story of Robert and Bonny’s toxic relationship, her shocking murder, and his chaotic trial. Did actor Robert Blake kill his wife? Or was the murder someone else's vendetta? From Wondery, and the team behind the hit series Hollywood & Crime (The Dating Game Killer, The Wonderland Murders, Death of Starlet) comes a six-part series about love, obsession and fame gone wrong.  Co-hosted by Tracy Pattin and Josh Lucas.

In 2021, a 51-year-old man referred to as “Daddy” by the followers of his alleged sex cult, was found guilty of 8 counts of sex trafficking.  Breaking any of Daddy’s rules would result in brutal punishment; including beatings, solitary confinement, and starvation.  “Daddy” kept his victims – most of them teenagers – locked up in his mansion. And all the while, he was topping music charts across the world with his era-defining R&B hits… This is the story of the rise and fall of Robert Sylvester Kelly.

247: Episode 247 – The 2017 Manchester Bombing

On 22 May 2017, as Ariana Grande hit the high notes of her final song to a sold-out Manchester Arena, Salman Abedi hit the button on a homemade bomb. The resulting explosion killed Abedi and 22 other innocent people, and left over 1,000 more injured.  The country mourned, millions of pounds were raised, and we all promised not to let hate win. But as the dust settled, a worrying question started being asked: how did a known terrorist sympathiser who had fought alongside an ISIL militia slip through the UK’s counterterrorism net?

245: Episode 245 - ‘The Satanic Verses’: Fatwas & Faux Pas

If the contents of a 546-page book can get one man murdered, two more seriously injured and its author forced into hiding for nine years, you can be confident of its subject: religion. But despite its reputation, ‘The Satanic Verses’ isn’t a page-by-page deconstruction of Islam. It’s a work of fiction; one that prompted the leader of Iran to call for a worldwide manhunt of anyone involved in its publication.  So how did one man’s literary skill get another man literally killed?

244: Episode 244 - The Van Breda Family Axe Murders

When police rushed to respond to a triple murder in one of South Africa’s most exclusive gated communities, it seemed as though Henri van Breda had had a lucky escape. They found him standing on his family lawn, dead-eyed and covered in blood and urine. According to the neighbours, he had been eerily waving to them while he waited for the police. All understandable, when three of your loved ones have been hacked to death by an axe-wielding maniac. But as police dug further into the burglary-turned-homicide, things just weren't adding up...

243: Episode 243 - The Sackler Family: An American Cartel

Often, on RedHanded, we find ourselves shocked at the actions of killers who callously murder tens of people. But what if we told you that there was a family out there who are still free to this day, whose actions are responsible for over half a million American deaths over the past 22 years? We are, of course, talking about infamous scumbags the Sackler family, whose greed, lies, and utterly vile actions unleashed a plague on the people of North America.

On the 13th of February 2017, two young women - believing that they were taking part in a bizarre Japanese game show -  smeared baby oil across the face of a stranger at Kuala Lumpur Airport in Malaysia.   The truth, however, was that there was no Japanese game show; the baby oil wasn't baby oil; and these two women had just unknowingly assassinated the estranged half-brother of North Korea's one and only, Supreme Leader, Kim Jong Un.

In the space of 3 weeks in October 2002, Washington D.C was terrorised by a pair of spree killers carrying out a spate of deadly sniper-style attacks. They killed 10 people and injured 3 others. Their choice of victims was shockingly random; they crossed racial, gender, age and socioeconomic lines - ensuring that everyone was absolutely terrified. And when the pair were finally apprehended, authorities realised that they had been wrong about almost everything from motive to profile… Check us out on this week’s episode of Let’s Not Meet Podcast too!

The deadliest event in UK sporting history took place on the 15th of April, 1989. In the starting minutes of the  F.A. Cup semi-finals between Liverpool F.C. and Nottingham Forest, a disaster unfolded which to date has claimed the lives of 97 people. and left 766 others injured on the day.  These innocent people were the victims of the complacency, ineptitude, and sheer incompetence of those whose very jobs were to ensure their safety.  Institutional coverups, police corruption, evidence tampering, and lies in the media made it take almost 30 years for the truth to come to light.

230: Episode 230 - Peter Manuel: The Beast of Birkenshaw

In early January of 1956, Glasgow police received a phone call about a break-in at the home of the Smart family. The scene they walked in on however was something far more sinister. Peter Smart, his wife, Doris, and their 10-year-old son Michael had all been shot dead at point-blank range in their beds. It was clear to detectives that the Smarts had been dead for almost a week, but if that was true, it didn’t explain who’d been feeding their cat… Become a patron: Patreon Order a copy of the book here (US & Canada): Order on Wellesley Books Order on Amazon.com Order a copy of the book here (UK, Ireland, Europe, NZ, Aus): Order on Amazon.co.uk Order on Foyles Follow us on social media: Instagram Twitter Visit our website: Website Contact us: Contact Sources: https://murderpedia.org/male.M/m/manuel-peter.htm https://www.mulhollandbooks.com/guest-posts/denise-mina-peter-manuel/ https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/scottish-news/revealed-sex-secrets-of-scottish-serial-997157 https://www.psychologytoday.com/gb/blog/fulfillment-any-age/201505/what-happens-when-psychopath-falls-in-love https://blackpoolcrime.wordpress.com/2014/11/19/blackpool-serial-killers-peter-manuel-did-hannibal-lecter-serve-ice-creams-on-the-golden-mile/ https://murderpedia.org/male.M/images/manuel_peter/Part1.pdf https://murderpedia.org/male.M/images/manuel_peter/PeterManuelFiles.pdf https://murderpedia.org/male.M/images/manuel_peter/Part4.pdf https://books.google.co.uk/books?hl=en&lr=&id=QBkjAwAAQBAJ&oi=fnd&pg=PT5&dq=peter+manuel+serial+killer&ots=BuRsz0ZsMD&sig=hLu19tNjZIqn5WkHKn5GIilOGbs&redir_esc=y#v=onepage&q&f=true https://www.crimeandinvestigation.co.uk/crime-files/peter-manuel#The%20Investigation http://www.policemuseum.org.uk/crime-casebook/interesting-cases/the-manuel-murders-1956-58/

On May 31, 2014, in Waukesha, Wisconsin, two 12-year-old girls, Anissa Weier and Morgan Geyser, lured their best friend Payton Leutner into the woods and stabbed her 19 times.

It was a case that gained the attention of the press internationally, bringing children's internet usage and "creepypastas" to the forefront of public attention.

When 22-year-old Casey Anthony was arrested on 16 July 2008, her two-year-old daughter Caylee hadn't been seen for over a month.

224: Episode 224 - The Guildford Four & The Maguire Seven

On the 5th of October 1974, the Provisional Irish Republican Army blew up a military pub in Guildford, killing four soldiers, one civilian and injuring sixty-five others. The responsibility for the heinous act of terror was quickly thrown at three young Irish men and a seventeen-year-old English girl. On top of this, accusations of running a  "bomb factory" was soon being shouldered by a middle-aged Irish woman who'd lived in England for twenty years. The British justice system had no evidence to prove the Guildford Four or Maguire Seven were connected to any bombings, but a large helping of police brutality and a bit of systemic corruption would soon sort that out.

Bonus - Bad Women: The Ripper Retold

Presenting a sneak peek of Pushkin's new podcast, Bad Women: The Ripper Retold. In 1888, five female prostitutes were brutally murdered in a London slum-- attacks so violent the killer earned a nickname: Jack the Ripper. For centuries, we have assumed these women were indeed “Bad Women,” ...but what if everything we know about them is wrong?  Historian Hallie Rubenhold has uncovered the true stories of the Ripper’s victims. They all struggled against the misogyny that thrived in Victorian England, until they found themselves in the path of one of the most vicious killers in history. Bad Women is a must-listen, rich in historical detail and suspenseful enough to satisfy any true crime fan.  You can hear more episodes of Bad Women at https://link.chtbl.com/redhandedbadwomen

Bonus - Georgia Williams: The Snuff Film Maker Down the Street

In this second instalment of our promise to deliver two bonus episodes after we won GOLD at the British Podcast Awards, we cover the heartbreaking case of Georgia Williams.  Georgia was a high-achieving and kind teenager who was always willing to help those who asked, and her killer knew this. 23-year-old Jamie Reynolds had an obsession with violent pornography and snuff movies. In May 2013 he used Georgia's good nature against her and eventually guilted the 16-year-old into coming over to his parents' house to take part in a "fake murder" photoshoot, that soon turned out to be all too real.

This week Suruthi and Hannah head into a place widely regarded as one of the most dangerous places in the Middle East right now - the notorious al-Hawl camp. It's where, in 2019, a British journalist found an 18-year-old, 9-month pregnant Shamima Begum. Soon after this discovery, Shamima Begum would have her British citizenship revoked, leaving her stateless in the desert hell-hole. In the concluding episode of this series, the girls discuss how ISIS used religion to justify sex slavery, the fall of the so-called caliphate and what should be done with individuals like Shamima Begum.

Earlier this year we promised that if we won gold in the BPA Listeners' Choice category, we would deliver two bonus episodes chosen by the Spooky Bitches. This is the first of those episodes - The Columbine High School Massacre. The months leading up to the 20th of April 1999 - and the mindsets of both Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold - have been very well documented. And yet the story of The Columbine High School Massacre is still full of misreporting, misunderstanding, and miscommunication.

202: Episode 202 - The Haunting Murder of Matthew Shepard

Content Warning - this episode contains quotes pertaining to homophobic and discriminatory language which some listeners may find upsetting. Listener discretion is advised. On the 7th of October 1998, 21-year old Matthew Shepard was found tied to a prairie fence at the end of a remote dirt track in Laramie, Wyoming. The young gay man had been pistol-whipped in the head over 20 times, and his brain stem had been crushed. He died 6 days later in hospital.  This case went on to become arguably the most infamous gay hate crime in modern history, and for many Matthew became a martyr.  In this episode, the girls examine what happened that night, the defendants’ muddled legal decisions, and the latest "bombshell evidence"… UK Live Tour Tickets go on sale 10am BST, Friday, 25th June 2021: https://www.gigsandtours.com/tour/redhanded Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/redhanded Vote for us as Listeners’ Choice in the British Podcast Awards here: https://www.britishpodcastawards.com/vote Pre-order a copy of the book here (US & Canada): Signed copies - https://premierecollectibles.com/redhanded/ Pre-order on Wellesley Books - https://www.wellesleybooks.com/book/9780762473793 Pre-order on Amazon.com - https://www.amazon.com/RedHanded-Exploration-Criminals-Cannibals-Killer/dp/0762473797/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=redhanded&qid=1617228369&sr=8-1 Pre-order a copy of the book here (UK, Ireland, Europe, NZ, Aus): Signed copies - https://www.waterstones.com/book/redhanded/suruthi-bala/hannah-maguire/9781398707603 Pre-order on Amazon.co.uk - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Redhanded-Exploration-Criminals-Cannibals-Killer/dp/1398707139/ref=tmm_hrd_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1616698132&sr=1-1 Pre-order on Foyles - https://www.foyles.co.uk/witem/biography/redhanded,suruthi-bala-hannah-maguire-9781398707139   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

In Conversation with Clair McGowan: Ireland's Vanishing Triangle

Between 1993 and 1998, eight women went missing from an area around Dublin that became known as the ‘Vanishing Triangle’. Was there a link? Speculation abounded. There were whispers of a serial killer, responsible for some, if not all, of these cases. But nobody was ever brought to justice. Twenty years later, the brutal murder of Jastine Valdez disturbs crime novelist Claire McGowan into action.  Reminded, like many in Ireland, of those previous missing women, McGowan brought her skills as a novelist to the real world, setting out to uncover the truth of the vanishing triangle. As she dug deeper, she found something terrible lurking behind the idyllic image of rural Ireland and the 21st-century success story of the ‘Celtic Tiger'.  In this exclusive interview, Claire speaks with the girls about her brand new Audible Original: 'The Vanishing Triangle', and in which attempts to uncover new evidence and solve the many questions surrounding Ireland's Vanishing Triangle.  This interview is available in video form for all $10+ Patrons right now!

196: Episode 196 - General Butt Naked: Liberia’s Cannibal Warlord

During Liberia’s first bloody civil war, Joshua Milton Blahyi - aka General Butt Naked - was the nation’s most feared warlord. It is estimated that he is responsible for the deaths of at least 20,000 people, lives he destroyed as he raped and ravaged his way through Liberia using human sacrifice and cannibalism to give him and his army of child soldiers “divine” strength. In this episode, Suruthi and Hannah follow the trail of destruction created by Blahyi, and ask can a man once dubbed “the most evil man in the world” really change?

In Conversation With Emily Kenway: The Truth About Modern Slavery

Emily Kenway is a writer and activist. As a former advisor to the UK's first Anti-Slavery Commissioner she was at the heart of modern slavery action. She has written for a variety of publications including the Guardian and TLS. In 2019, over 10,000 possible victims of slavery were found in the UK. From men working in Sports Direct warehouses for barely any pay, to teenaged Vietnamese girls trafficked into small town nail bars, we're told that modern slavery is all around us, operating in plain sight. But is this really slavery, and is it even a new phenomenon? Why has the British Conservative Party called it 'one of the great human rights issues of our time', when they usually ignore the exploitation of those at the bottom of the economic pile? The Truth About Modern Slavery reveals how modern slavery has been created as a political tool by those in power. It shows how anti-slavery action acts as a moral cloak, hiding the harms of the 'hostile environment' towards migrants, legitimising big brands' exploitation of the poorest workers and oppressing sex workers. Blaming the media's complicity, rich philanthropists' opportunism and our collective failure to realise the lies we're being told, The Truth About Modern Slavery provides a vital challenge to conventional narratives on modern slavery. Emily's incredible book 'The Truth About Modern Slavery' is available via this link  Follow Emily on Instagram and Twitter  The video version of this interview is available on Patreon for all $10+ Patrons.

Roch Thériault held a vice-like grip over his loyal followers, so tight that they would abandon their children to his surgical madness, and so firm they would abandon their partners for his harem. He called them The Ant Hill Kids, and with him, life was a living hell.

She had learned all she could about black magic from the Romani travellers who passed through her little Italian town, but still the deadly effects of the hex persisted - at least in Leonarda's mind. As she grew desperate, and immersed herself further into the occult, Leonarda realised it was all about the 'law of equivalent exchange'; to save a life, she'd have to take a life...

142: Episode 142 - Johann “Jack” Unterweger: The Poet of Death

In Austria in 1974, Johann Unterweger was sentenced to life for the murder of a young woman. From behind bars he was soon writing beautiful poetry and painting a heartbreaking image of a man who had endured a hard childhood, made some mistakes - but who was now the poster boy for rehabilitation.  Johann went in to prison an illiterate murderer, and with the help of his many elite supporters, he came out early - as a bestselling author. But everything wasn’t as it seemed, and this is the story of a serial killer who tricked not only his many victims, but also an entire nation.  Support the show and get access to weekly bonus content on Patreon!

133: Episode 133 - The UK's Most Prolific Rapist: Reynhard Sinaga

When 18 year old, Peter, woke up in a mystery flat after a night out he was scared. It was then with horror that he realised he couldn't move his arms, and a strange man was sexually assaulting him... That man was Reynhard Sinaga; and thanks to Peter, in January 2020, Sinaga was finally convicted of 159 sexual offences, including 136 counts of rape.  For years he'd been preying on the men of Manchester, England - attacking with impunity and going totally undetected thanks in large part to his innocent looks, and the copious amounts of GHB that he plied his victims with. This week we uncover the man behind the mugshot.

132: Episode 132 - Michelle Carter & Conrad Roy: “Love You Forever”

When 18 year old Conrad Roy was found dead in his truck it looked like an obvious suicide. But as detectives started their investigation it soon became clear that this was anything but obvious. Conrad and his 17 year old online girlfriend, Michelle Carter, had exchanged a series of troubling messages in the lead up to his death. Ones in which Michelle seemingly encouraged Conrad to kill himself. Today RedHanded asks the question - did Michelle Carter cause Roy Conrad’s suicide, or was it a tragic perfect storm based on teenager’s romantic fantasy?

When 8 month old Matthew Eappen was admitted to hospital with signs of a severe head trauma, and died just days later of his injuries, doctors and police suspected abuse.  Louise Woodward, Matthew’s 18 year old British au pair, was quickly arrested and tried for his murder; and although she denied ever hurting the baby, many experts seriously doubted her story.  With the medical evidence pointing in every direction, in this week’s episode Suruthi and Hannah put shaken baby syndrome and the case of Louise Woodward under the microscope...

When 14 year old Ana Kriégel was found in an old, abandoned Manor House in Lucan, Dublin the sheer brutality of her murder horrified a nation.  But the revelation that the perpetrators of this incredibly violent, sexually-motivated crime were themselves kids - even younger than Ana - raised dark questions about guilt, innocence and the idea of dangerous children.  References: https://www.irishtimes.com/news/crime-and-law/courts/criminal-court/ana-kriegel-murder-boy-a-sentenced-to-life-boy-b-sentenced-to-15-years-1.4072944 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f7D4jygfJTY https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/northern-ireland/boy-convicted-of-ana-kriegel-murder-incredibly-sorry-38642533.html https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/breaking-ana-kriegel-murder-boy-20815532 https://www.irishexaminer.com/breakingnews/ireland/ana-kriegel-verdict-the-evidence-the-jury-did-not-hear-931435.html https://www.thesun.ie/news/4876479/ana-kriegel-hellhole-house-renovations-demands-demolish/ https://edition.cnn.com/2019/11/05/europe/ana-kriegel-ireland-youngest-killers-scli-intl/index.html https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7629567/Mother-murdered-Ana-Kriegel-haunted-torture-sadistic-violation-daughter.html https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/10237395/ana-kriegel-mum-life-destroyed-murder-dublin/ https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-48991131 https://www.independent.ie/irish-news/courts/ana-kriegel-murder-trial-jury-asked-to-consider-if-theres-any-real-evidence-boy-a-planned-any-of-this-at-all-38198380.html https://www.independent.ie/irish-news/courts/ana-kriegel-murder-trial-dad-of-boy-b-says-his-son-didnt-tell-him-full-story-at-beginning-as-he-couldnt-believe-it-38179372.html See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

124: Episode 124 - École Polytechnique: The Montreal Massacre

The 6th of December 2019 marks the 30 year anniversary of the Montreal massacre, a dark day in Canadian history. It was the day that gunman Marc Lépine walked into an engineering school and shot dead 14 female students.  As he shot the women, he exclaimed that he hated feminists, and that feminists had ruined his life. This sentiment was backed up in his manifesto. A manifesto that shares a great number of themes with that of Isla Vista killer Elliot Roger, or the motivations the 2018 Toronto van killer, Alek Minnassian. But with the continued glorification and martyrdom of the likes of Lépine, Rodger and Minassian - how far have we really come?

Navigating racial tensions and cross nation cooperation meant that bringing Hannah’s killer to justice was not going to be an easy task.

In 1978, five men piled into a car after a local basketball game, they stopped at a shop to pick up some snacks and then they vanished. The next day their car was found on a mountain road, without a scratch, half a tank of petrol and in perfect running order. Why would the men have left the car and entered the freezing wilderness? It wasn’t until the summer that four of the men were found, well at least their bodies were...but the discoveries only deepened the mystery; one of the men was even found in a trailer, surrounded by food - but had seemingly starved to death. To this day Gary Mathias, man number five, remains missing - leaving us asking the question what happened to the Yuba 5?   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

On the 16th of April 1996 James Patterson Smith walked into Gorton police station and told officers that his 17 year old girlfriend had drowned in the bath.

So brutal was the crime that it was the first time in Manchester Crown Court that jurors were offered counselling, every single one accepted. This week’s episode is not for the faint of heart.  Sources: Britain's Darkest Taboos doc on Kelly Anne's case: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7SRFU2mMQg8&t=2553s   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
