On this darkened, wartime installment, Tom and Jenny are delving into two horrific cases of serial killers who took advantage of the low-light conditions and general chaos during World War II to ply their grisly trade. On the first half, we discuss England’s Gordon Cummins, better known as The Blackout Ripper, who prowled the streets of London during one terrifying week in 1942, slaughtering and mutilating women left and right. On the second half, we go into the case of Eddie Leonski, The Brownout Strangler, an American serviceman stationed in Melbourne, Australia who murdered several women under similar conditions in the same year. Hunker down in your air raid shelter and turn your lights on full blast, it’s time for the historical horrors of episode 153.
