13 O’Clock Episode 114 – The Monster of Florence and the Vampire of Hanover

We’re returning to the true crime well for this installment of 13 O’Clock, and this time around, we’re talking serial murder, European style. On the first segment, we’ll be discussing the so-called “Monster of Florence,” a killer or group of killers who targeted camping couples in the Italian countryside in the period spanning 1968 to 1985. On the second half, we’ll be relating the case of German serial murderer Friedrich “Fritz” Haarman, also known as the Vampire of Hanover, who murdered at least 27 boys and men between the years of 1918 and 1924. Brew up a cappuccino and slip into your lederhosen as we travel down the dark alleys of European crime on episode 114.

13 O’Clock Episode 112 – The Harpe Brothers and Belle Gunness

It’s another true crime double feature, but this time it’s American history style! We’ll be discussing two cases of some of the most brutal killers on the American frontier…the infamous Harpe Brothers, who murdered at least forty people in Tennessee, Kentucky, and Illinois in the late 18th century, and the legendary Belle Gunness, a ruthless “lonely hearts” killer who murdered somewhere between fourteen and forty victims at the dawn of the 20th century and buried many of the bodies on her farm. Take a swig of sarsaparilla and slap on your spurs, because episode 112 is going back in time for historical crime.

13 O’Clock Episode 111 – The NorCal Rapist and the Grim Sleeper

On this true crime two-fer, Tom and Jenny are getting topical, as well as examining two cases that have been suggested by several listeners. First up, we’ll be tackling the case of the infamous NorCal Rapist, an offender who carried out at least ten attacks between 1991 and 2006, and was finally identified just recently through DNA as fifty-eight-year-old Roy Charles Waller. On the second half of the show, we’ll be discussing the chilling case of LA serial killer Lonnie David Franklin, better known as the Southside Slayer or the Grim Sleeper, who killed at least ten victims in the 1980s and the early 2000s. Lock your doors and windows and settle into the relative safety of a criminally creepy episode 111.

13 O’Clock Episode 109 – The Zodiac Killer

On today’s cryptic and crime-ridden installment, Tom and Jenny are finally getting around to tackling America’s preeminent case of a serial killer who has never been caught: The Zodiac. Beginning in the mid to late 1960s, California was gripped in fear of the hooded gunman who largely targeted couples in their cars and ruthlessly shot them to death before sending taunting and coded letters to police and newspapers. Who was he, how many people did he actually kill, and will he ever be apprehended? Dig out your decoder rings and tune in for a discussion of the classic study in true crime that is episode 109.

13 O’Clock Episode 104 – The Black Dahlia

It’s true crime time again on this grisly installment of 13 O’Clock, and this go-around, we’re tackling what is probably the best known unsolved murder case in American history: the horrifying slaying of the Black Dahlia. Back in 1947, dark-haired beauty Elizabeth Short was found sliced in half and drained of blood in an undeveloped Los Angeles neighborhood. Who committed such a vicious crime, and why? Theories and rumors have abounded in the more than seven decades since the murder occurred, and public fascination with the case shows no sign of abating. So listen in to our take on the notorious crime, along with an opening news story about a Florida cold case from 1994 — the brutal murder of Amy Gellert — and many, MANY of our famous digressions. Settle in for the long, blood-drenched saga of episode 104.
