Moms Who Murder
Play • 1 hr 9 min

A mother is meant to be the ultimate protector of their children.  Sometimes though, they are perpetrators of the ultimate betrayal.

In this episode we speak about four cases where mothers have taken the lives of their children, before killing themselves.  What could drive a woman to the edge like this?

1 – Michele Boudreau Deegan drugged her twin 7 y/o daughters before shooting them and then herself in the head
2 – Cynthia Collier fired 34 rounds into her four adopted teenage children, before taking her own life
3 – Kimbra Shanafelt and her 5 y/o daughter were found dead in their home from carbon monoxide poisoning
4 – Tristen Watson was pregnant when she took her toddler son into the Rocky Mountains National Park.  She shot him and then herself, and her unborn baby also passed away.

Episode 51: Poppie Van der Merwe (Part 2)
In episode 50, I began telling you the story of a three-year-old girl named Poppie Van der Merwe, whose utterly preventable death shocked the nation of South Africa. After multiple reports that Poppie and her five-year-old brother were being abused, social services became involved, but the family moved to avoid the investigation. Three weeks later, Poppie was dead, and in this episode, I’ll go over the events that followed the arrests of both her stepfather and her mother. This is the story of the murder of a blonde, blue-eyed little doll whose smile stole the hearts of an entire country. It’s also a sadly familiar story of the failure of an agency tasked with protecting children despite countless warning signs and multiple reports from those close to the family. This is part 2 of the heartbreaking story of Poppie Van der Merwe. Francois Nolte’s short film based on Poppie's story, Porselein, can be viewed here.

Murder Mayhem and Meth: The Real Breaking Bad In Texas | E2
As we work on future episodes about notorious prison breaks in Texas and violent crazy cults, I want to share an episode from our sister podcast Justice Facts. My cohost is Bill Johnston who is featured in Season 1 of my True Crime Reporter™ podcast called Free to Kill.  Johnston then a federal prosecutor launched the manhunt for serial killer Kenneth McDuff. A television show based on the podcast is currently in development. If you have not listened to the 17-episode series, I strongly recommend that you subscribe to Season 1 - Episode 1 to hear about the worst serial killer in Texas history. He is worse than Ted Bundy! Johnston and I reconnected as a result of that series and started the Justice Facts podcast together. The true crime cases from our careers are stranger than fiction. In this episode from our Justice Facts Podcast, we start with the notorious meth cook that Texas Narcotics Agents called “Mr. Z”. Talk among informants was that “Mr. Z” was the man. The big shot. The kingpin of methamphetamine operations in North and East Texas. Mr. Z. provided the formula, know-how, and muscle for meth labs across a wide swath of the state in the early 1980s. He was a true-life version of Walt in Breaking Bad. But possessed by extreme paranoia that stockpiled an arsenal of stolen military weapons. It’s a case of Murder, Mayhem, and Methamphetamines. P.S. We want to become your favorite True Crime Podcast. In order to do so, we need your review on Apple.

Hey everybody, welcome to the latest episode of True Consequences, and the season finale for season three. I really hope that you enjoyed the latest season of True Consequences. It's really been a joy to create. And while the stories have been pretty difficult to cover, I'm grateful for the people who have helped me make this possible. I'd like to start by thanking my son, Kai Landin for helping with the editing. And I'd like to thank all of my sponsors, listeners, patrons, who have made this show possible. But don't worry, I will be back soon with more content for you in season four of true consequences. In the meantime, Dos Spookquenos is going to be back very soon, as well as the third project that I'm working on called great... A laugh at life. It will be my friend Alex and I, again, talking about all the things that make life either great or Maybe not so great. Today's episode is very special. It's a collaboration between myself and a good friend of mine named CJ. CJ is the host of Beyond the Rainbow, true crimes of the LGBT. She does a phenomenal job. And I highly encourage you to listen to her show and subscribe. This episode is about the murder of Zakria Fry. Zakaria was a transgender woman living in Albuquerque, New Mexico who was brutally murdered along with her roommate. The first part of this episode is going to be CJ giving you the case details in a narrative. And the second half is me interviewing Zakaria's sister, Heather, to talk about the murder case and how it's affected their family. Again, I want to thank all of you for making this show possible. You are incredible and I couldn't do it without you. So let's go ahead and get started with CJ from Beyond the Rainbo True Crime.
