Episode 02 : Stephanie Lazarus

Stephanie Lazarus dated John Ruetten off and on from the late 70s until 1984. When Lazarus learned that Ruetten had met another woman and that they were already engaged, the reality that their relationship was not as serious as she had thought hit her hard. Hard enough to make her want to kill.

Robin Barefield
The Killer Who Hibernated in Alaska
Retirees Robert and Dagmar Linton eagerly embarked on a long-planned camping trip in the Pacific Northwest, and they promised their children they would be careful. The Lintons did not express concerns about their journey, but Dagmar made sure their wills and affairs were in order before they left home. Was she just cautious, or did she have a premonition something terrible would befall them? Her son and daughter would always wonder if their mother had concerns, and they would never know what exactly happened to their parents. Kenny Lake Sources Charles T. Sinclair. Murderpedia.

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.
