In Late 2014 the prestigious $25,000 Blake Art prize was awarded to Melbourne artist Richard Lewer for his short video animation about a true crime real-life love tragedy. Richard Lewer’s work, titled “Worse Luck I’m Still Here”, tells the true story of Bernie Erickson and his long-term de facto wife Julie Kuhn. It's a short video animation about a true crime real-life love tragedy. In the local newspaper, the artist, Lewer read that Erickson, 81, had pleaded guilty of murder for the smothering death of wife in the half fulfilment of a...

Dear Bloody Murder, My wife is the true crime buff, but she has finally converted me after eight years of lovely wedded bliss. I drive for Uber and Lyft in Minnesota, and my radio in my Ford focus died last summer This event eventually got me to try podcasts for a regular break from music while at work. My true crime nerd time is something I watch regularly, It's BuzzFeed Unsolved. This is on its own channel on YouTube now, and can be found on Hulu as well. The two hosts of this show,...

Hi Tara and Barney I watched this gem the other day : Abducted in Plain Sight I know that many of us true crime buffs are really into murders specifically, and while this story does contain a death, which I will not reveal due to the spoiler factor, it is more a story that starts with child molestation and webs into a whole lot more shit. My husband chose this movie to ‘Netflix and chill’ and while I didn’t expect much, there were times that my mouth was agape and that we actually...

There are 2 docos I reckon are worthy. Blackfish This doco made me so mad. Its the type I can’t bring myself to watch again because I was so affected. It’s not your traditional crime doco but what happens in it is definitely a crime. Greedy fuckers putting employees lives at risk to make a buck!!! People get hurt, 3 people die and the people who can change it DONT. I hope those cunts burn in hell. Be warned there is some animal cruelty involved, as it’s about Tilikum an orca...

Crime is something that South Africa is not short on. Many of the stories that would be front page news in other countries is a side note on page 3 or not mentioned at all. True Crime stories are easy to find but rather difficult to find a satisfactory conclusion to, many never have an ending. But the other day my husband sent me a news article of a SA crime that sounds more like a plot for a Guy Ritchie film. We start with the headline "Alleged gang boss 'Donkie'...

My name is Jade, I live in New Zealand and I have just started to listen to your podcast and I love it. There's so many episodes that it's really hard to choose just one.

I love the comedy, you guys are very funny, keep up the good work. For True Crime Nerd...

The Serial Killer Whisperer by Pete Earley My parents bought this book as a Christmas gift for me in 2016, and the second I got around to reading it, I couldn’t put it down. It’s not exactly a traditional true crime book, but it scratches all my itches. It chronicles the story of Tony Ciaglia, who suffered a traumatic brain injury at a young age that drastically changed his personality. In order to cope with the depression and dark thoughts that followed, he began corresponding with serial killers that are imprisoned...

I have a recommendation for true crime nerd time - an old tv show called 'Autopsy'. Its the one with Michale Baden - not to be confused with the program of the same name where the strange large-hat wearing German guy does live autopsies or the one where they talk about famouse peoples last hours. His wikipedia states Autopsy is a television series of HBO's America Undercover documentary series. Dr. Michael Baden, a real-life forensic pathologist, is the primary analyst, and has been personally involved in many of the cases that...

Although the cases that are discussed in this book will be well-known to many Bloody Murder listeners, it is still fascinating. Former FBI profiler John Douglas and his long-time coauthor Mark Olshaker examine five cases: Jack the Ripper, Lizzie Borden, the Lindbergh baby kidnapping, the Zodiac killer, and JonBenet Ramsay, and include helpful images and maps. Douglas provides a brief but thorough summary of the events in each case, examines the historic theories surrounding them, and provides new insight via a profiler’s analysis. On the whole, the book is riveting...
