Rotten but still a little sweet! Rotten Mango is a true crime + all things spooky podcast. We love doing deep dives into the darkest crimes and we tend to not leave out any details - which can get a little rotten at times. If you want deep dives in the psychology of killers, no holding back storytelling of crimes, and stories of lesser known criminals from around the world this is the place for you. Welcome to Rotten Mango but don’t worry it all comes with a seasoning of comedy/sweetness.

#359: 20 Police Officers Listened On The Phone As He Sliced Her Into 365 Pieces To Make Human Flesh Pills

Oh Won is getting into his next at home project – everything is set up for success. He has a whole bottle of his favorite Chinese liquor. It’s stronger than Vodka, but he’s tossing it back like water.  His hand reaches for his phone as he feels the urge again. He’s on autopilot mode - staring at his screen, swiping, swiping… He presses play and puts his phone up against the bathroom sink. The woman’s moaning is just echoing off the bathroom wall… He lights a cigarette and squats down with his 8-inch knife. He starts moving the knife back and forth.  The key is that each cut has to be uniform; all the same thickness and size. It’s the most enjoyable for consumption that way… Before Oh Won knew it, six hours had passed. 365 pieces of meat, meticulously sliced into uniform, same-sized, thin pieces. He portioned them out and placed them into 17 separate black plastic bags. All that’s left are the bones and the parts that aren’t really important. He flips over the piece he was working on all morning. He stares at her face. He didn’t—couldn’t take any meat from there. Her face and hair were untouched, but below her neck, all of her flesh had been sliced off up until her knees.   He had deboned her.

#358: Netflix’s “3 Body Problem” New Show Leads To MURDER Of YOUNG BILLIONAIRE

The "3 Body Problem" was going to be Jeff Bezoz’s billion-dollar investment. The plan? Invest $1B into a new sci-fi series and watch the subscriptions to Amazon Prime Video flow in. All they have to do is buy the English adaptation rights off from the Chinese gaming giant – Yoozoo Gaming. They own the film and TV rights to the “3 Body Problem Universe.” The deal was close to being done – till CEO Lin Qi of Yoozoo walks into a conference room in LA. Dressed like a gangster. Puts his feet up on the table and suggests a co-production. He blew up the deal that Amazon had been working on for 8 months. Amazon was upset but as they were walking out of the meeting room… they noticed something. Nobody around CEO Lin looked happy either. They wouldn’t be surprised when they heard the news 2 years later. The billionaire CEO Lin was murdered by someone inside his company.

#357: Yale Student Found Inside The Wall of Multi Million Dollar Research Lab on Campus

There’s a boring red brick building in the middle of Yale University’s campus. If you walk past it you might think it’s an administrative office. It looks - boring.  But if you look closely - there are 75 CCTV cameras pointed directly at the building. Covering every square inch of the exterior. Why would they need so much security for a university building? It is the Animal Research Laboratory. It houses over 4000 research mice and has tens of millions of dollars of research experiments being conducted inside the brick walls.  It is one of the most secure buildings on campus.  Till a brilliant Yale graduate student disappears inside.  She walks in.  Never walks out.  She is nowhere to be found in the building - or at least that’s what the authorities initially thought.  But have they checked the walls?

#356: Ex-Minister Beats Wife To Death For 8 Hours THEN Goes To Lunch Date With Influencer In Next Room

He once controlled the entire economy of the country—to put it simply. The man in the restaurant security footage is an ex minister of Kazakstan, the third most powerful person in the entire country.    His name is Kuandyk Bishimbaev and his wife, Sultanat Nukenova, were supposed to be on a dinner date; instead the security cameras capture something else.   Around 7 in the morning, the ex minister grabs his wife by a fistful of her hair and throws her onto the ground in the hallway.   Her jacket naturally flips open – and she’s naked, barely covered on the cold dirty floor of the restaurant. He’s standing over his wife’s limp body on the ground. The ex minister lifts his right leg up and starts kicking his wife as hard as he can. He’s holding onto a table to maintain his own balance.    That’s how much force is being used.   Then he drags her by the hair into a bathroom – where there are no CCTV cameras. Any footage of her after that has been erased.   But the ex-minister is seen many times after on the security footage. Spending time with other women – a lunch date with an influencer, texting an alleged sex worker, all while his wife lay dying in the VIP booth of the restaurant.    His excuse for why he couldn’t call for help or get his wife's battered body out of the restaurant? Well—because— Vladimir Putin is coming.  Full Source Notes: rottenmangopodcast.com To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

#354: Acid POURED Down 6 Year Old Boy’s Throat & Body - South Korea’s “Acid Boy” Case

He melted onto the street.  He was 6 years old when he was walking down the street in South Korea. Someone walks up to him and pours sulfuric acid down his throat and all over his face. His clothes were burnt black. The floor had bits of melted flesh.  Third degree burns over most of his body - the boy had a 5% chance of survival.  He was rushed to the hospital where he told the officers that the man - “Mr. Kim” who owned the fried chicken shop was running up behind him with the bag of acid. He was the one that did it!  “Nonsense, acid is liquid. You can’t put it in a plastic bag - it will burn through the plastic.” That was the police’s response. Had they investigated properly - they would have realized… the fried chicken shop owner was indeed, a little strange.  To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

#352: The Nurses Watch Him Bleed Out On The Operating Table Because The Doctor Went Home

The first thing they feel is how stiff the table is underneath them… it feels so cold. Then, they open their eyes, and see a masked man staring straight at them holding a scalpel.  The first instinct is to scream. To run.  But that would be silly. They paid thousands of dollars for this surgery.  Suddenly, their eyes start feeling heavy again. The room looks blurry and they start to feel like something heavy is sitting on their chest.  The only comfort is knowing that they booked the best plastic surgeon in all of South Korea. It was a little strange that they had an opening for a surgery the same week… because wouldn’t his schedule be fully booked? If he’s that popular? And they could have sworn that he had 5 other surgeries scheduled for this very time slot… how could the doctor be in 5 operating rooms at once? But that’s why they’re called “ghost doctors.” You book a surgery with a top doctor, pay top dollar, only to have him walk out the room the second you are sedated. Then a strange man will come in and perform surgery.  The man that worked the front desk? The medical salesman? The custodian?  They can all be your doctor if they put on a white coat.  To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

There is a young guy, blonde hair, striking blue eyes - just standing over them. She makes eye contact with him… he lifts his hand up and a black rifle appears. He opens fire. Out of the 11. 10 will die. 1 will survive. Another 59 on the island will be killed within the hour. There is a mad gunman on the loose on an island full of teenagers.

Underneath a blue towel - lay a decapitated head and pair of hacked off hands.  Any louder and the Cohee family would have to ask their 19 year old son - where is there rest of the body??  Full Source Notes: rottenmangopodcast.com To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

#348: Animal Nth Room- University Students Killing & Selling "Cat In Blender" & "Cat in Microwave" Videos

In the seat facing away from the camera, all they could see was the student’s back and her arms digging through whatever was in her lap. For several minutes, she stayed like this. Then she got up. Turned around. And looked straight into the lens of the CCTV camera in the corner.  She locked eyes and stayed like that. They felt a chill as they watched the footage. An icy stare. Frozen in place. Then she lifted up her hands and held a body up to the camera. A cat--a campus stray, lovingly named Princess by the other University students. She grabbed the back of the kitten’s neck. Then, with her other hand, wrapped her grip firmly around the kitten’s throat and squeezed.  Shanghai Tech’s very own serial cat killer. This is the case dubbed the ‘animal Nth rooms,’ about the world-wide cat (crush, torture, and kill) gang that was responsible for the viral video—the cat blender. Who is behind it all? And why?

Teenage girls start rushing to the apartment building, jumping excitedly and shouting “Hey Lindemberg! Come to the window, I came here just to see you!”  “We like bad boys!” - it’s like a concert for a boy group celebrity.  But Lindemberg is a ticking time bomb. He’s hiding away from the window in the apartment.  The hollers, catcalls, hearing his name - ugh he can’t focus! He needs to focus right now.  He stretches his arm out the window and waves his hand around wildly as a pulls the trigger on his gun.  Pop! Pop! Pop!

#345: Severed Head Stabbed On Japanese School Fence With Note In Mouth - “Let’s Play A Game”

Kenta's Tuesday morning routine was always the same — a 5 a.m. breakfast of rice, miso soup, and salted salmon, followed by his walk to work at Tomogaoka Middle School, where he greeted students at the blue gates every morning. But today was different. Kenta took the same route as always — turned the same corner — and dropped his briefcase onto the ground. His hand flew to his mouth. Maybe he let out a scream, maybe he didn’t – and it was all just in his head. Shaking, Kenta read the letter: "This is the beginning of a game You stupid police Try and stop me if you can Murder is something I cannot help but enjoy There's nothing I want to see MORE than people's deaths Let the foul vegetables be punished with death Let there be bloody judgment for my many years of bitterness." On the blue metal gates of the school — right next to the sign that read TOMOGAOKA MIDDLE SCHOOL — sprouting from one of the jagged metal picks of the fence -  The severed head of an 11-year-old. The note was shoved in his mouth.

All the police could do was watch the livestream - the camera was set up in a motel room. They could see in the video the girl was helplessly crying as she was assaulted by a man. One by one - more men showed up to the motel room to assault her.  They all stood in line in the order that they came - waiting for their turns. The victim would be found dead soon after. When news broke in the livestream chatrooms that she died - the comments started pouring in.  “Wait, did the motel girl really die? That’s so sad… we should go relieve ourselves on her funeral portrait. One last gift from us! “Dang, if she knew she was going to die, she should have given us her body one more time.” The police saw the video but they had no idea who these assaulters were, who orchestrated the attack, or how to even catch them.  All they knew was there were more victims. Hundreds of them. All victims of the Nth room. And they needed to save them before another dies.  Full Source Notes: rottenmangopodcast.com To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

He looked back up to a random man rushing towards him with a pail of water. He threw the water onto Gustavo’s arms. Everyone was acting so strange…   Then a woman yelled at him, “HEY! You need to call an ambulance!—There’s something wrong with your body!” Gustavo was taken aback but reassured the woman, “NO! Don’t worry. It’s just my shirt—I tore it on the way out of the club; that’s all…” He was sure of it. He could feel his shirt in that moment, shredded and hanging off his body. Every time he took a step forward or turned around to look at another stranger yelling at him, he could feel it swaying, hitting other parts of his torso.  The woman looked at him very concerned, “Sir. You’re not… wearing a shirt.”   Gustavo walked towards a streetlamp and looked down at his arms. His flesh was eviscerated, hanging only by his wrist.  His skin was melting off..  Full Source Notes: rottenmangopodcast.com To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

“I can’t let you in…” The housekeeper was confused - what does the mom mean she can’t let me in? “Could you just toss the keys from your balcony?” The mother threw her keys from the balcony and vanished into the house. The housekeeper walked into the house and it was immediately chaos. The mother was hysterical - the father was banging his head on the wall. The mother threw her arms around the housekeeper. She cried and ushered her to a bedroom, “Come, come, inside and see what happened!” Lying in her bed was the family’s 13 year old daughter, dead. Her throat slit ear to ear. Her body looked posed and so were her stuffed animals, though they were eerily free of any blood or splatter. This case would become known as the JonBenét Ramsey case of India. Rumors of cheating, black mail, revenge, honor killings, truth serum, grooming and orgies consumed the media but the only thing we know for certain is - whoever her killer or killers are – they are free.

#335: Starved Teen Forced To Drink Hot Sauce - Killer Threw Up In Court Seeing Victim’s Final Photos

The surveillance footage that captured the limp body of a young boy getting dragged into a closet was surprisingly clear. “You’re pathetic, but I already knew that.” The person talking came into view and positioned the boy in front of the camera. His body was completely nude except for a sagging diaper. To be alive - seemed agonizing. The little boy’s breathing sounded like a fish out of water - they bent over and pinched the little boy’s lips together. “See? You don’t need to breathe through your mouth like that - dummy.” Those would be the last words he ever hears. The boy would die in that closet.

#334: Japan’s Twitter Killer Sleeps With 9 SEVERED HEADS In His Tiny Tokyo Apartment

He woke up from the smell. His head was pounding as his eyes adjusted to the harsh bathroom light. Did he drink too much the night before? What is that smell? He reached his hand up to rub his eyes… it was covered in blood. He looked down - blood. All over his clothes, the tiles, everywhere. He slowly turned his head to the bathtub - and there floating in the water… were dismembered body parts. Along with a severed head with long black hair that was getting tangled… “I swear I woke up and there was just a body here.” The police would never fall for it. He had no choice but to put on a raincoat, mask, and eye goggles and get to work. Finish the job. But eventually, he would stop, right? This would be the 9th severed head in his collection.

#332: What Really Happened On Jeffrey Epstein’s Private Island? Secret Sex Parties & Rituals of Ultra Rich

Be like Barbie, Nina thought. She pushed her chest out and applied bubblegum lip gloss as she arrived at the seaside mansion for the first time. The last thing she wanted was to look like a child. But to Jeffrey Epstein, that was absolutely what he wanted. In fact, quite possibly the only thing he desired at all. What do rich men desire when they know they can buy almost everything in the world? They want what they can’t have. For Epstein that was young girls, illegally young girls, inexperienced young girls—his desires weren’t uncommon by any means either. Epstein was a multi millionaire rubbing shoulders with princes, socialites, tycoons, magnates, all over the world who had exactly the same desires. How far would the rich go to get something they couldn’t buy?

#331: Children’s Charity selling students to rich donors to "fund their schooling"

Most business deals are done at the dinner table. You quite literally wine and dine your potential investors. CEO Chen knew the song and dance better than anyone. He invested in companies with unique products to offer to the market. The businessman in front of him was doing everything to get CEO Chen to open his wallet. “Our product is really unique and hopefully this is comforting to know - I quality assure each and every single product sold.” CEO Chen smiled and the businessman knew it was time to go bigger. He eagerly stated - “We also give back to our local communities. We provide aid for elementary and middle schoolers. Here, take a look at what we’ve given to them.” CEO Chen leaned over to look at the businessman’s phone. The man smiled at his screen and kept swiping from the videos… Each video depicted a 12 year old being brutally assaulted in a dimly lit hotel room. The investment opportunity? A child sex trafficking ring disguised as a student aid foundation.

Dr. Bickham was the coroner for the small town of Slaughter. For the past few decades, he had looked death in the face - that was what the job required, and he was good at it. Until January 3, 2022.  He was called out to the small white suburban house with the well manicured lawn - he could tell someone had died there judging by the smell. He walked into the living room and there in the center was a couch.  The living room was organized and tidy even, except this couch was at the center covered in feces. The smell was stinging his eyes. He walked closer, and he saw - melted, into the couch the body of a young woman.  She was unclothed, maggots in her hair, rotting flesh eaten off her bones, and she was sitting there with her eyes and mouth open. She had been sitting on this very couch, alive, for the past 12 years.  Full Source Notes: rottenmangopodcast.com To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

A young woman was rushed into the emergency room carrying a tiny 7-pound baby- she had blood all over her face, body, and feet. She had just given birth in the car coming home from Walmart. A normal delivery is already dangerous but to give birth in a moving vehicle, while driving, could pose a lot of health risks. It was all hands on deck in the emergency room. If the mother’s uterus was bleeding heavily - that could mean life or death for the mother. The nurse put her fingers on her stomach (as a trained nurse she could tell by pressing on the outside of one’s stomach if blood was dangerously flowing from the uterus). But she felt nothing. No blood flow. No uterus. The nurse froze. She turned to her colleagues in pure horror and stated - that’s not her baby. Then whose baby could it be? And whose blood is this woman covered in?

#269: 2 Girls Accidentally Killed Kim Jong Un’s Brother Thinking It Was a YouTube Prank

He was on his way to airport security when the girls came up to him. The first one came up behind him and covered his eyes. She ran off. Then almost immediately after, another woman came up and put her hand on his mouth and ran off. The two girls, who had never met prior to this, had just executed a near perfect assassination. They had a deadly chemical agent VX on their hands that was now on his face. He would die a painful death in the matter of 30 minutes.  But more puzzling is - why did he have the antidote to that very illegal substance in his backpack? Did the girls know he was Kim Jong Un’s brother? Were the girls working for North Korea or were they really just filming a YouTube prank video?

#265: University Students Abducted To Be GIFTED To A Politician To Be Gang Raped| Murders of Eileen Sarmenta and Allan Gomez

They say a dead body smells like rotting meat - but with a thick, syrupy, sweet undertone. It’s the sweet part that makes most people want to vomit. But these days heavy chemicals are used in morgues to neutralize those smells - but working in a morgue is far from easy. The students at the University of the Philippines sacrificed partying on the weekends to work at the University hospital - inside the morgue. One day, the students curiously watched as police officers ran into the morgue. They had two bodies covered in white sheets. They warned the students - it was gruesome, bloody, and one victim had evidence of being assaulted and tortured by at least a few killers. The students held their breath as they peeled back the sheet. They stood in horror to see their friends from college laying on the cold steel tables. This case would lead to the vanishing of a police officer, 7 high profile killers being thrown in jail with a combined sentence of nearly 2,000 years, and even the President getting involved.

Her friends were being brutally beaten by 9 strange men for the pure fact that they refused to sleep with them. No bystander tried to help.

Rotten Mango Visual: https://www.youtube.com/@rottenmangopod On October 30th, a man walked out of his tiny little shop in Itaewon. He placed a pink blanket in the grim alleyway.

Nobody was supposed to be in the alley, not after what had happened there. The man yelled at the police - “don’t you dare touch the food. Don’t touch it. Please you have to let me do this. The kids need to eat one last meal.” 159 young souls had tragically died in that little alleyway. The man had desperately tried to save them.

He stomped the snow off his boots; the ice storm had no mercy on this town. It was nearly 3:30 in the morning, and the officer had somewhere important to be. He knocked on the woman’s door and followed her down into her basement. She didn’t even seem to notice the chill in the air. It seemed like she was distracted. Like she had seen something far more scarier than a relentless winter storm. Tara explained she came down into the basement and saw her son like this. She glanced down, the officer squatted and peeled back the bath towel. There, staring up at him. Was the severed head of Tara’s son sitting in a black bucket.

#234: 20 Year Old Girl Does Blackface To Commit Murder For The Most Bizarre Reason

The heat was suffocating. She was stuck in her car with no AC in the middle of the Florida summer heat. That’s comparable to being slow-cooked in an oven. She wiped the sweat off her forehead and left a smear of dark pigment on her hand. She was sweating her disguise off. She had to look as natural as possible. Not suspicious. But how could she? She was doing blackface in her car, wearing a giant hoodie, shoes that were 5 sizes too big, and a gun resting on her passenger seat. Maybe she didn’t think this through. She thought it would be easy to kill  - especially, when you have the perfect disguise for it. (Book: “Kill For Me” - by M.

It was her favorite outfit. A red Michael Jordan jersey, black shorts, and sneakers. She was hesitant about wearing it because, well, the color red meant something in the area, but her mom encouraged her to wear what she wanted. Besides, all she was doing was quietly waiting for the bus to take her back home to Grandma’s. As she stood there waiting, in red, a car drove past. For a brief second, the guys laid eyes on her. A girl wearing red. She was the one. That split second would lead to the horrific gang rape, torture, mutilation, and murder of a 14-year-old girl who just wanted to wear her favorite color.

There were poker parties/gang assault parties, hooded figures performing rituals, and over 25 babies being sacrificed to Satan himself. This was the biggest allegation of police officers being involved in a sex Satan cult that had ever been raised. But was it true?

#211: The Millionaire “Human Girl” Collector & Sex Dungeons

If you walked into his house, you would be tempted to walk right back out. The smell alone could have knocked you back through the front door. Every surface, every wall, every square inch of the floor was littered with dust.  He collected tens of thousands of bottles, empty cereal boxes, trash, magazines, everything. He kept it all. I don’t know how you would find anything, let alone anyone in a place like that.  It would have been nearly impossible to know that in a tiny little empty sugar box that blended in with the rest of the trash - there was a note. It read, “my name is Amy help me… I have been kidnapped.”  In this house, 5 women were held captive for 15 years, and he almost got away with it.  Full Source Notes: rottenmangopodcast.com To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

#210: The Influencer Deepfake Sex Club - Blackmail & Torture of Taiwanese YouTubers

Zamy, a Taiwanese influencer, had worked hard to build up a wholesome reputable image. Yet, it was all going to come crashing down in the most nightmare-ish way possible. One day, she woke up to being flooded with messages with people asking her “what are you doing this for? Do you not make enough money on YouTube?” It was a “leaked” video of Zamy. She was engaging in sexual activity yet she didn’t remember anything about this encounter. But clearly, it happened because there was no denying that was her face. But the more she studied the video the more she realized a few small things were off. Her body didn’t look the same. She didn’t speak Japanese, but in the video she did. She was so confused. She had to dig further. What she found was terrifying. A group of thousands of men who were trading and purchasing deepfake p*rn videos of YouTubers and celebrities. None of the people depicted consented for their faces to be used like this. And this was just the start of a nightmare.

#209: Indonesia’s “Jeffrey Dahmer” - Serial Killer Very Idham Henyansyah

In the summer of 2009, there were whispers around South Korea. A Korean blogger had gone out to the woods and came back traumatized. They had seen something in the woods they shouldn’t have.  They called it “The Mimic” and it is NOT human. It has no human emotions, no human empathy, but it sounds just like a human. It can mimic anyone’s voice to lure you into their web of death.  It sounds like an urban legend, right? But there are people amongst us that do the same thing. They do not feel love, empathy, and have no care for others but they are so convincing in their acting you would never know. They feel nothing yet you feel like you can trust them. That is the story of the Indonesian Jeffrey Dahmer.  To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

#206: “Hollywood’s Cannibal” - The Dark Empire of the Hammer Family

It all started with a Hollywood divorce. The joint statement released by both parties seemed amicable enough, but the public wanted more. They wanted to know the intimate details of the relationship’s downfall. They say 50% of marriages end in divorce, so the odds weren’t in their favor to begin with, but nobody expected it to go down like this. Very quickly, a public divorce turned into allegations of assault, abuse, and cannibalism. One of Hollywood’s own leading men allegedly had a string of victims whom he wanted to eat. Texts about him wanting to cook their ribs, their skin, see their brains, and do horrible things to them were released. And once that broke the news, people started digging into his family history and they found an empire. An empire of ruthless, egotistical, sexually deviant men. Let’s talk about the Hammers.

The two police officers ran out of their car. They knew there was time was of the essence when they saw the stream of blood running down the residential driveway. They had their guns drawn and started making their way into the garage where they heard animalistic noises. A dog perhaps? They didn’t know what to expect but it wasn’t this. On the ground they found the victim laying flat on their back, arms spread, blood everywhere, looking up at them. The victim pleaded with them, “please help me.” And next to the body of the victim was another man. He was latched onto the victim’s body using both hands to hold the victim’s face in place…so he could bite off his face flesh. He chewed. He swallowed. He was eating the victim’s face in front of the police officers. He was like a real-life parasite attached to the victim’s face.

#203: The Carnival Boy - Serial Killer Pee Wee Gaskins

It was a bit gruesome even for a carnival act. The snake and the rat. A giant king cobra in the cage hissing about and an employee would throw rat after rat into the cage. No matter how full, bored, or even tired the snake was, it would kill each rat that entered the cage. Even most adults would grab their child’s arm and rush away. It was never a pretty sight to see death in action, but little Pee Wee Gaskins sat glued to the bars of the cage. Eyes never leaving the snake. He felt in awe. The snake didn’t kill because it was hungry. No, the snake killed because it wanted to. This revelation was Pee Wee’s first erection, and he knew from that day forward he wanted to be a king cobra snake. He wanted to be the most prolific of all the serial killers.

#202: The Rape of Nanking & The Trafficking of Comfort Women

They were called “Comfort Women,” but their lives would not be in any sense comfortable. They were kidnapped, tortured, and held hostage to be assaulted by military officials. Soldiers had their own name for them; it was “public toilets.” Most of these women either died in captivity from murder, disease, or from the sheer violence of their assaults. But don’t be fooled by the name, sometimes comfort women were girls as young as 11 years old. Why? Well, wartime always brings out the superstitions in soldiers, and it was believed that assaulting a virgin brought soldiers strength and power. And they would need that strength to go out and kill over 200,000 citizens in the city of Nanking. This might be one of the darkest cases we have covered in a very long time.

#200: 13 Popular High School Football Players Gang Raped Their Disabled Classmate - “The Princes of Glen Ridge”

When I say “it was the town’s best-kept secret,” what do you imagine? Maybe an unknown hole-in-the-wall restaurant with the best milkshakes? Maybe a secret hangout spot near the river with the best city views. Not for the town of Glen Ridge; it was much darker than that. For them, their best-kept secret was their boys. The town’s group of star athletes - the football players, wrestlers, basketball players, and the most popular boys in class. So why are they a secret? Well, they’re not. But the secret was over a dozen of the most popular boys gang raped a disabled high school girl. They assaulted her with a baseball bat and broomstick. It was a secret kept by the boys, the parents, teachers, faculty members, coaches, and social workers, for 3 full months before the police were alerted.

John was devastated when he got the call from his wife’s twin. His wife of two and a half years had just passed. Sure, he knew that she had been terminally ill for a while, but that didn’t ease the grief he felt. So when his wife’s twin sister showed up at his front door, he welcomed her in with open arms. She was the only one that understood his pain. They were identical twins, but she had blonde hair, whereas his wife had brown. She was also a bit thinner than his wife. Maybe she reminded him so much of his wife that he slowly fell in love with her. He felt it was natural to connect with her, but he had no idea that she had planned it all. His wife’s twin had been obsessed with their life. Their picture-perfect marriage, their lovely plush house, and she wanted it for herself. She felt she deserved it more than her twin. So she was here to take it. Everything. The house, the husband, and the life.

They say when you seek revenge, you should dig two graves. One for yourself as well. The PTA moms didn’t think of that when they raged war. Jill was said to have gone up and down the hallways of the wealthy school to pass out flyers. Flyers that were printed with baseless accusations against another PTA mom. It’s said that she was jealous of the other mom. Some say it’s because she was trying to distract the community from the fact that she was cheating on her attorney husband with 4 firefighters - at the same time. Regardless Jill’s obsession will turn into a web of conspiracies involving child abuse, cheating with the tennis coach, drugs, and death. The result? Two behind bars and millions of dollars on the line. This is the PTA mom nightmare. (Book Red - “I’ll Get You” - by Kelli Peters & Riley J Ford.

Edward’s new boss loved a good team-building event. Most companies would take their employees out for a fun night of bowling. But not Edward’s boss, Robin; he liked to have a more intimate setting. He gathered all 3 of his employees in the attic of his house and told them to follow after him. He started chanting random phrases while holding up an object into the air above them. Then he dramatically pressed the object to his mouth and took a bite. He cackled maniacally and passed it around for everyone to eat. It was an amputated human breast. They were all going to be cannibals from this point on. Robin didn’t care though. He didn’t even care that he ripped the flesh straight from a human being who was still alive. All he cared about was that his employees were bonding with him.

On the mattress in front of her was a woman tied spread eagle. She was still moving.

But have you ever heard of the “Little Red Mansion?” Because this one is very real. The mansion itself was beautiful, filled with crystal chandeliers, gold crown moldings, and massive rooms filled with over-the-top furniture. It felt like an expensive boutique hotel. But for the girls trapped inside it was the biggest nightmare. They were being held hostage, trafficked to high-powered government officials, injected with hormones, and in the end, their eggs were ripped from their bodies to be sold on the black market. If you walked by the Little Red Mansion, you would think it’s a nice building - you would never imagine the secrets it held.

It’s alleged that the Bakers would force the foster boys to molest the foster girls in their care. It’s said that the Bakers would even force brothers to inappropriately touch sisters under their direction. Victims came forward to say they were assaulted weekly by Mr. Baker, and they remember being starved as a fear tactic. Most of these kids came out of the foster home as survivors, but one, one child grew up to become the predator. One that would prey on victims where they might be the most vulnerable - the church.

#182: The People Who Spy On Us (KGB & MI6 Spy Kidnapping)

In the comfort of her own private living room, Rachel complained about her bad back to her husband. They needed to drive across the border to see a specialist. In Caroline’s place, Caroline argued with her husband about going on a double-date road trip for Rachel’s bad back. Her husband argued it was going to be boring, but he caved eventually. So it was settled the two couples would be road-tripping to Finland. Sounds like a mundane conversation? Boring almost? Then why were agents carefully transcribing every single word that they heard inside Rachel and Caroline’s house? Why were they listening through their electronic devices? Rachel and Caroline were seemingly normal people… why did government agents care to spy on them? And are they listening to you right now?

#179: Dismembered Into 2000 Pieces (Nanjing University Mutilation Case)

Margaret was cooking up her favorite stew. She could use it. The temperature was below zero, the winter storms were approaching, and Margaret hoped the nutrients from the pork bones would give her energy. She would need the energy for her cleaning job. She took her pork bones, which were neatly pre-sliced, she took them out, washed them, and plopped them into her water. It was almost muscle memory - but when she stuck her hand in again she felt something strange. She pulled out some bony pieces in the bag and it took her a moment to realize she was staring at 3 severed human fingers. Margaret didn’t have pork meat. She had the dismembered remains of a university student. The police would find 2000 more pieces of that student dropped around campus.

And another note - a piece of paper that was handwritten. Where he had promised $2 million dollars to someone within the next 120 days. Could that even be a real contract? Would a handwritten random note be used in the court of law? Why was this successful tech CEO so scared of losing $2 million dollars? Why had he promised it in the first place?

And she only got intimate with David if she could call him “Daddy” in a teeny tiny 5 year old girl’s voice.

Drip. “Sir, I think your car is leaking.” They both looked down to see a red liquid drip down onto the pavement. The gas attendant didn’t know that there were 3 bodies in the trunk - and the driver was going to keep it that way.

#146: The Pathological Liar & The Corpse (Case of Casey Anthony)

It’s said that some pathological liars are even considered functionally delusional. They can even pass a lie detector test. They believe their own lies. Sometimes they re-write their lies and memories on the spot. You can see their eyes flutter, a shift in attitude, and boom. They are living a new reality and you almost feel like you’re the one going crazy. But as humans, we can detect lies, right? Or can we? What happens when a pathological liar takes a stand in front of the whole nation to say - “my child has been kidnapped by her nanny! Help me!” Would you believe her?

#145: He Was Shot Then He Fought To Save His Attacker’s Life (Terrorist Mark Stroman)

The public was split. Most wanted him dead. He didn’t deserve to live, he killed 2 people, and shot another in the face. Another group of people, a smaller group, fought to save his life. Activists, professors, and lawyers fought hard. They knew he was guilty but they fought. One man fought the hardest. He traveled the world campaigning for his release. The world was shocked. They asked him: are you sure you want him to be free? Are you out of your mind? Do you need psychiatric help? “But… but didn’t he shoot you in the face?” Book: “True American” - by Anand Giridharadas (this is one of the best books I’ve read all year… it’s incredibly emotional and I highly recommend it) Full Source Notes: rottenmangopodcast.com To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

Think about your dog, cat, or any beloved pet. If you don’t have one - imagine one. Would you ever chain your dog up to your chair all day long while you and your buddies watched TV? Would you make the dog beg you on all fours to use the restroom? And if the dog did something you didn’t like - would you ever dream of chaining up outside to a tree in the cold winter night? You wouldn’t dream of doing that to a dog. It would make you a horrible person. But that’s how David liked to treat his girlfriends. What does that make him? A murderer.

#112: The Hillside Stranglers Part 2 (Case of Angelo Buono Jr & Kenneth Bianchi)

Family should always be close. The two cousins did everything together. They slept with their son's underage girlfriends together, started a business, and even lived together. They wanted to experience life’s greatest pleasures - together, as a family. The rush of injecting a woman with Windex (the window cleaner) to see how they would convulse. The rush of hooking up a woman to electrical wires from an auto shop. The rush of leaving naked bodies all over happy Los Angeles. They did it all - as a family.

#111: The Hillside Stranglers (Case of Angelo Buono Jr & Kenneth Bianchi)

Kenny was ecstatic - he was finally moving to LA where he would chase his dreams. To make things better his older cousin was letting him stay at his house. He would also teach him a few lessons on how to be successful. “Lesson #1: You gotta hit the bullseye. Make it your target. Right between the legs. Always use a wet towel. It doesn’t leave bruise marks. Oh, and Kenny? Don’t chicken out when you strangle them.” The two cousins would be known as the “Hillside Stranglers” and they would leave behind a trail of bodies all over the hills of LA.

The beekeeper called for his friend - “Jose you need to come now!” He had found something near the abandoned house. They rushed over to a small pit on the ground covered with branches. They bent down - used an old spatula to move around the dirt. It was a watch. They screamed…the watch was still attached to its owner.

He was used to drinking all night - in fact, it was his only true joy. Maybe it was her fault. He looked down at the girl laying on the ground covered in her own blood.

“Big John” loved his little apartment. It wasn’t nice but it was his. He was in his 40’s and he wanted to decorate it with whatever style he pleased. His bedroom was more of a game room with a mattress on the ground. The walk-in closet was wall-to-wall with the newest and latest games. Nintendo games, board games, barbies, you name it. His drawers were stuffed full with candy and his mini-fridge only had soda in it. The only thing is - none of these things were for Big John.

#75: The Mean Girls Killers (Case of Shanda Sharer)

The 4 teenage girls decided they wanted McDonald's for breakfast after their all-nighter. They carefully reverse parked into the lot so that all the bloody handprints on the back of their trunk would be hidden. They ordered a full breakfast - and one of the girls lifted up the sausage patty and giggled “doesn’t this look like Shanda?” The 12-year-old girl that they kidnapped? The one they tortured in unspeakable ways for the past 8 hours? The one that they just burned alive?

#74: The Party Monster Murder (Case of Michael Alig)

The hottest clubs in New York City were run by Michael. He knew how to throw a party - serving cat food as appetizers, performances of women pulling Christmas lights out of - well, you know where.  A rotating wheel of 6 cow tongues for anyone to “rub” up against. This was the place to be.  But when rumors started circling that Michael had injected one of his friends with Drano and dismembered him in his bathtub… nobody believed it. Or maybe they didn’t want to? Because the party must go on.  Source: "Party Monster" by James St. James - wow... this book is a first-hand account of the whole scene, the environment, but also the crime.

#73: Hotel Of Horrors (Serial Killer - H. H. Holmes)

You’ve booked a room in a nice hotel that everyone calls “The Castle.” You quickly realize things are not what it seems here.  Doors with spikes attached. Vaults filled with acid. Secret peepholes in the rooms. Staircases that start and stop out of nowhere.  You see the “elasticity machine” it’s supposed to stretch your body so you can be taller. The owner wants to create a new race of giants…  Everything feels so strange. Why the weird maze like layout? And who is H. H. Holmes?

#72: The Body In The FBI Agent’s Trunk (Case of Mark Putnam & Susan Smith)

The hardworking FBI agent was on his way to a meeting when he noticed the large crack on the passenger window of his car. How is he going to explain that? He had a lie for the large wound on his hand. What about the deep scratches all over his neck? Surely he could come up with something.  Now the only thing left to take care of - was the decomposing body in his trunk.  Nothing an FBI agent can’t handle.

#71: Cannibal Mountain (Case - Uruguayan Rugby Team)

“What’s the last thing you ate?” the doctor asked.  All 16 of them responded the same - “human flesh.” A plane of 45 passengers had crashed into the side of a snow covered mountain in the Andes. Yes, it’s freezing, they were only wearing t-shirts, and many were wounded if not dead - but, they will be rescued soon.  That was what they put their faith in. But they were wrong. They wouldn’t be rescued for another 72 days and only 16 would get out alive.  Source Notes: rottenmangopodcast.com To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.
