Episode 153: The Max Headroom Incident
One Sunday night in November 1987, something very odd happened in the middle of the nine o’clock news in Chicago. As one television viewer said, it felt like someone threw "a brick through your window." A television engineer said it felt like "a home invasion." And a little boy said it was "very, very funny."

Ep 137: NXIVM - Inside The Organization
In 2019, Keith Raniere, one of the founders of NXIVM, a self-proclaimed self-help organization, went to trial for federal crimes including, extortion, forced labor, sex trafficking, fraud, and the production and the possession of child pornography. There have been numerous articles and documentaries made about this scandal, but in today’s episode, we look at the testimony of Lauren Salzman, who struck a deal with prosecutors and agreed to testify against Keith.  Note: Everything in this episode is based on what the jury heard from Lauren’s testimony. In my haste, I mispronounced the secret society, DOS. It's been quite a hectic week, so pelase forgive me.  Sponsors in this episode: Talkspace - To match with your perfect therapist, go to Talkspace.com or download the app. Make sure to use the code COURT to get $100 off your first month.

Episode 190: Martha Haney
It's another old timey murder from Alaina! But trust us, this one will have your jaw hitting the floor. Way back in 1897 Michigan, Martha Haney's struggle with her own illness reached the point of no return when she lashed out against an easy target, her 85 year old mother in law Mariah Haney. Let's just say that this one is rough. Good luck and good night, friends. Alaina found this crazy tale while stumbling upon the writings of Rod Sadler, a retired police officer and true crime writer who has a very personal connection to this particular case. His writing is great. Here are links to all of his books including To Hell I Must Go, which is the book that sucked Alaina down the rabbit hole of this case. To Hell I Must Go by Rod Sadler (https://www.amazon.com/Hell-Must-Go-Michigans-Lizzie/dp/1478751037) A Slayer Waits by Rod Sadler (https://www.amazon.com/Slayer-Waits-Michigan-Double-Murder/dp/1478790369/ref=pd_lpo_14_img_0/135-2693667-9584166?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=1478790369&pd_rd_r=857b125b-a669-47d6-a183-6211c600f534&pd_rd_w=ENOaQ&pd_rd_wg=julKv&pf_rd_p=7b36d496-f366-4631-94d3-61b87b52511b&pf_rd_r=DAVY52M8S3REMPPM2SP9&psc=1&refRID=DAVY52M8S3REMPPM2SP9) Killing Women by Rod Sadler (https://www.amazon.com/KILLING-WOMEN-Serial-Killer-Millers/dp/1952225272/ref=pd_lpo_14_img_1/135-2693667-9584166?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=1952225272&pd_rd_r=0bc60870-cba4-4654-9e72-077afae5a661&pd_rd_w=gYtrN&pd_rd_wg=gXIUb&pf_rd_p=7b36d496-f366-4631-94d3-61b87b52511b&pf_rd_r=H4GNESAH9NF7ARJM3C54&psc=1&refRID=H4GNESAH9NF7ARJM3C54) Rod's website (https://www.rodsadler.com) https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/152876032/martha-e_-haney https://www.newspapers.com/clip/13837585/martha_haney_alfred_haneys_wife_beheads/ As always, thanks to our sponsors for this episode!

Kianna Galvin
On May 6, 2016, 17-year-old Kianna Galvin told her sister that she was going to the park and left the family home in South Elgin, Illinois, on foot. Kianna did not go to the park but instead walked to the house of an acquaintance. Neighbors later reported that they saw Kianna going into the house, but she did not come out. Her cell phone died or was shut off several hours later, and she hasn’t been seen since. Kianna’s story is one full of unanswered questions, a quest for justice, and characters whose actions remain unexplained.  If you have any information about Kianna Galvin’s disappearance, please call the South Elgin Police Department at 630-232-8400. You can follow Kianna’s story on social media at Justice for Kianna.  This episode was sponsored by: Hunt A Killer- Go to HuntAKiller.com/VANISHED and use promo code VANISHED at check-out for 20% off.
