“Katie Beers, Against all Odds” | MURDERISH Ep. 073
On December 28, 1992, nine-year-old Katie Beers vanished from a Long Island amusement center. National headlines in the days that followed read “The Tiny Tragedy from Long Island” and “America’s little girl lost.” The ripple effects were extensive. Not only was a young child missing, but a paralyzing sense of ‘stranger danger’ also terrorized New York’s second largest county. What had become of little Katie? Was any child safe? The events that unfolded after the young girl’s disappearance were a tale of alarming tragedy and unabiding resilience. Join me as I walk you through the case of Katie Beers.

110: It's Always the Husband: The Michael Morton Story
In 1986, a young mother was brutally murdered in her Austin, Texas home, early in the morning, while still sleeping in her bed. Her husband had left for work at 5:30am. Her three year old son was left alone in the house. Unfortunately, the night before, her husband had become disappointed when his wife had been too tired to make love. Michael Morton loved his wife, but he left a note for her that would definitely sting any wife. And based mainly on that note alone, corrupt investigators made sure he spent 25 years in prison for the murder of his wife, Christine Kirkpatrick Morton.

***Sponsored by: AcornTV! Visit Acorn.TV/Trace to get your first 30 days free! Simplisafe! Visit Simplisafe.com/Trace for a free security camera and 60 day risk free trial!*** Eighteen year old Jennifer Pentilla was driven to help others. Fresh out of high school she traveled to Mexico on a mission trip to paint churches and assist the local community. When an opportunity arose to go back, she leapt at it. What was supposed to be a group bike trip from San Diego, down into Mexico, fell through but Jennifer was undeterred and even if she had to go alone, she was set on making the trip. In October of 1991, she set off on her own and for a time the trip was going well. However, on October 17th she made her last call home and mysteriously disappeared from Deming, New Mexico. Over a year later, most of her belongings were found in the desert not far from the town of Hatch. Thirty years later, the question remains, what became of Jennifer Pentilla?

82: Reagan Tokes
A collective fear that many women face is walking alone at night-time. Most women can relate to the sense of terror that washes over when you think that somebody could be following you or watching you. In Columbus, Ohio, in 2017, a young woman vanished while walking to her parked car after finishing her shift at a local bar. The investigation would reveal many systemic failures in Ohio’s justice system and lead to a change in law. It would also give legitimacy to the collective fear of walking alone at night.

Nothing to Lose (Part Two)
(Part 2/2) 18-year-old Corona, CA high school baseball prospect Brandon Willie Martin was signed by the Tampa Bay Rays in the 2011 Major League draft. His talent and incredible promise was worth an estimated $860,000 cash signing bonus. But after signing the contract, renting a posh 6,700 square foot mansion, and hosting massive alcohol and drug fueled parties - something changed in Brandon. Over the next four years he would lose everything - including his freedom, after he was released early from an involuntary 72-hour emergency psychiatric hold.

DARK CALL 3 - FULL EPISODE FREE BONUS
Hey all you hug dealers, Ok this is a personally curated Dark Call for all of you that have been asking what you might be missing over on Patreon ( http://patreon.com/1159media ). But don’t worry, this is a bonus, and we will also still be filling your earballs this week with a new 911 Calls episode as expected. What makes a call a Dark Call? Well, one of two things: * The call just might not resolve like normal - in other words, it might be a bit more uncomfortable, but we still try really hard to find the humor in everything … just like normal, and we try to hold your hand through all the craziness that might ensue. * Or, it might be a topic that we find a little more intense than what we would normally play on the 911 Calls Podcast with The Operator … which afterall is a family show. * Three, the theme song sounds different, it’s still the same song, but it is performed by my friends down at the gothic church of the 7 elevens, they’re a startup … support your local goths, I say… * But finally, rest assured, there is always, always, always a happy ending that is both happy and the ending to each episode. So with that, I hope you will continue to trust me as I present this special, hand picked Dark Call for your earballs to absorb.
