‪16 year old Matthew Hardman was obsessed with vampires and wanted to become one. He wanted to be a sexy vampire for so many reasons but mostly because he wanted to be immortal. It seems nobody in his quiet village in North Wales took his obsession seriously. That is until he brutally murdered his neighbour, 90 year old widow Mabel Leyshon and did unspeakable things to her corpse.

Thanks to the lovely Loraine Ledwell for her mad welsh skills on this one!

      Hi Kearon, we have phased out our podbean patron program and have a new one at patreon. Just cancel your old old and sign up at Patreon, it’s so much better with much more content up there for you.
