13 O’Clock Episode 93 – The Family Murders

We’re going back to Australian true crime for episode 93, and boy, this one’s a doozy. Remember when we talked about the Wanda Beach murders and the disappearance of the Beaumont children back on episode 77? We kinda mentioned today’s topic on that show, because there were some suspects in common, but here’s the complete, horrible story of the so-called “Family Murders,” which took place in Adelaide, South Australia in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Seems there was an alleged cabal of wealthy, prominent older men in the city who would cruise around, pick up teenage boys, and do unspeakable things to them before dumping them by the side of the road. This one’s kinda rough, so y’know, have some cute kitten videos on standby for afterward. Also, we’re covering a recent news story whereby a suspect in a Washington State double murder case from 1987 has been identified using the same genealogy technique used to capture the Golden State Killer. It’s true crime from Down Under and Up Over (I guess…?) on a grim and gruesome episode 93.

13 O’Clock Episode 88 – British Serial Killers Jack the Stripper and Bible John

NOTE: We’re all about the digressions again this episode, so if you just want the serial killer stuff, skip ahead to about twenty minutes in. I’m telling you right here, so don’t complain, hahaha.

It’s true crime time again on this installment of 13 O’Clock, and this go-around we’re discussing two of Britain’s most infamous serial killers who were never caught. First up is the elusive Jack the Stripper, responsible for several murders of prostitutes in London spanning the years from 1959 to 1965. Then we’ll be talking about the mysterious Bible John, who murdered at least three women in Glasgow in 1968 and 1969 after meeting them at one particular dance hall, but who may be tied in to one of Scotland’s most prolific serial killers. All this, plus some recent news stories about exploding hams, getting tasered for Jesus, and attic-dwelling ex-boyfriends. Get ready to investigate with Tom and Jenny on a gore-soaked episode 88.

13 O’Clock Episode 71 – Hinterkaifeck Farm and the St. Aubin Street Massacre

What better time than the day after Christmas to reflect on the year that has passed and look forward to what will hopefully be a bright new year? Or, if you’re 13 O’Clock, you spend the day after Christmas talking about two of the grisliest and weirdest unsolved axe murders of the 20th century. Boxing Day, Axing Day, close enough. We all celebrate in our own ways, after all. On this blood-soaked episode, Tom and Jenny are discussing the massacre of the Gruber family at the infamous Hinterkaifeck Farm in Germany in 1922, as well as the bizarre occult-style slaying of the Benny Evangelist family in Detroit in 1929. Keep your head about you as we swing the blade of episode 71 right into your eager ear-holes.

Also, if you have a TRUE creepy story that happened to you or someone you know (it doesn’t have to be paranormal, just scary and true to the best of your knowledge), please email it to me at gravecake@gmail.com and we might feature it on our special Halloween episode!
