The dead list - well, he called it the “List of the Doomed.”

On there was a long meticulously written list of 50+ local young girls. In the years to come he would sit down, pull out his little dead list, and in a red pen, he would methodically write “D” next to a name.

D for dead. Another one is dead.

It didn’t matter if the girls on the list knew they were doomed. It didn’t matter how much they tried to protect themselves. Once t...

When he was found dead at the bottom of a building in Beijing - the police found two notes of interest. His suicide note where he named his killer. That seemed odd?

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 sca...

It was supposed to be a place of growth, learning, and happy laughter filling the yards. It was a place where people were supposed to feel safe.

But in the parking lot of the elementary school, under a suspicious white van, there was a woman lying nude. Murdered.

The police had the killers in the back of the cop car… they could see one of them looking at the victim. His lips curled up into a small smile.

He was happy with what he had ...

He ran an anti-abduction training program called “Project Taken.” He would teach young girls how not to get kidnapped.

He was not someone to mess around. Ex-military man. Specialist in kidnapping prevention. International hostage negotiator. He did it all.

Well, nobody expected he would find himself wrapped up in one of the strangest, most bizarre kidnapping cases in all of true crime history. The kidnapping of Sherri Papini.

The authorities burst into the room and their jaws dropped. The entire room was completely white. Even the books on the shelves were bound in white leather.

But the most shocking was the pure white bed in the middle of the room surrounded by an arc of chairs. As if people sat around the bed like it was some sort of show.

Which they did. Authorities found audio recordings of middle-aged men assaulting underage girls while their friend...

The Burning Sun scandal exposed some of the most beloved K-pop idols to be depraved predators. The Burning Sun was a popular club.

The type of club where rich men ruled. If you wanted a rare bottle of champagne. They would get it. If you wanted the club to stay open an extra hour. They would do it.

If you wanted the bartenders to roofie a random girl’s drink so that you could have her escorted into your private room to assault… they ...

He emerged from the thick jungle for the first time in a long time.

He had been waiting for this moment for years. The day World War II would come to an end. He would be relieved from his duties and Japan glorious in their victory!

Onoda held his breath while his commander read his release. Onoda waited for further orders but there were none. Just a tub of face cream.

“What’s this for?” - asked Onoda.

“You’re going to need it. For all ...

Truth serum. It has quite a dark history.

The CIA tested the heavy sedative on suspected criminals, murderers, and terrorists. They hoped it would even the smartest spies to - well, tell the truth.

It would be hard to imagine a world where truth serum was tested on children on a large scale. But it happened.

In Aston Hall Mental Hospital a sick, twisted, depraved doctor hand-picked young girls to experiment on.

He would have them admit...

The text messages were released. At first, it only circulated amongst smaller group chats - but like a fire, it spread.

It was too good of a scandal. Two normal everyday people and the innermost private parts of their lives. Their affair.

Wanda, the married woman, and mother, cheats on her husband with the mailman. Nude pictures and videos were circulating of the two. Wanda lost everything. She lost her job, her family, her friends, ...

Everywhere he went, he was kind. He was kind to the woman he passed by in the produce aisle, the female cashier, and even the woman next to him at the red light.

Maybe he was nice because he loved to picture all these women naked and in his bed. Sure, some would call it crass but was Ned’s favorite thing to do.

Regardless, the women were nice back. They liked Ned. He was well dressed, clean cut, and seemed gentle.

They had no idea tha...

It all started when a woman jumped from her bathroom window. The police questioned whether or not it was a suicide.

The whole nation did. Why did the seemingly happy wife and mother take her own life? Maybe someone pushed her?

Why was her entire back filled with sexually derogatory tattoos?

Just weeks later her father-in-law took his own life, and a 14-year-old girl’s body was found stuffed in a suitcase.

How were they all connected?

The four of them sat in the hospital room. The sound of rain pelted the windows.

Al stood up and started shouting “They’re coming! They’re coming to take the wicked and the evil!”

He fell to his knees in front of where the woman was sitting and started rubbing her with his palms. “MOMMY! DON’T LEAVE ME! PURE MOMMY. PURE AS SNOW.”

The woman was shocked. The man was her husband, who was also a successful therapist. What happened to him?...

They were even staying in the penthouse of a beautiful oceanfront hotel. The penthouse bathroom had a hot tub that they were certain was going to help ignite their romance again.

But the night ended with two headless bodies in the tub. They were dismembered. And honestly, it was exactly what the couple felt they...

Being a marriage counselor is a tough job.

I imagine the married couple Erika & BJ would tell very different stories about their couples vacation.

BJ would say that he fell asleep in the car while his wife went into a hotel room with a couple they just met. He was heartbroken and devastated when he found out what she had done.

Erika would argue that BJ was there the whole time - in fact, he wanted her to take pictures of him with ...
