  • The Mysterious Deaths in Auburn, CA - Ep. 52

    A string of mysterious deaths in Auburn, CA, caught the attention of attorney and reporter Christine Craft. She enlists two PIs to help her look into 10 cases where the deaths were ruled either accidental or suicide rather quickly by the police but had too many similarities to ignore. Some think the social or economic status of the residents may have caused their deaths to go without investigation, or that there was even a serial killer in Auburn around that time. We are going to talk about the 10 cases and the theories brought up in the documentary by Christine Craft called: Everyone Counts An Auburn Documentary. We put the link below and highly recommend it. Additionally, the family of Calvin Kelley has set up a tip line to report information on any of the cases mentioned in this episode. Please call: 530-269-3478 if you have any information.

  • Takahiro Shiraishi AKA "The Twitter Killer" - Ep. 42

    Takahiro Shiraishi was a pretty average child except for the instances when he played a game with his friends where he would choke them until they passed out. Once in adulthood, he would use the social media app, Twitter, to engage with potential victims. He specifically targeted people who were mentally and emotionally vulnerable and who wanted to commit suicide. He'd present himself as some sort of confidant or spiritual guide who would assist them with the act and even suggested he would join them. His intention would be to rape and murder them instead. This despicable killer committed his crimes during August through October of 2017.
