Tyler Hadley was 17 years old when he decided to bludgeon his parents and then throw the rager of a lifetime (in his eyes.) Close to a hundred people attended this party not knowing that in a separate locked bedroom down the hall, the bodies of Mary Jo and Blake Hadley were laying under a hodgepodge of household items. We redid this case to offer some new information and woah, somehow it’s even more disturbing the second time aroun...

Daniel Morcombe was 13 years old when he was taken from a bus stop in Queensland Australia. Queensland was supposed to be one of the safest places to live so this absolutely rocked the community.

It’s Alaina-centric and it’s old timey!! We’re heading back to England in the 1930’s. William Herbert Wallace is quite a character, and to be honest so is his wife Julia. When Julia turns up dead in their home, people start taking a closer look at Wallace and his idiosyncratic tendencies. Why doesn’t he seem to be emotional, why is he just petting the cat so nonchalantly, what is this dude's deal? Is he telling the truth about ...
