117. The Yogurt Shop Murders / The Haunted Hill House in Texas


It’s Monday! Time for your Hangover this week!  Bettina and Beth cover a true crime and a haunted location from the state of Texas this week.  Bettina shares the mysterious case of the Yogurt Shop Murders from 1991 in Austin Texas.  Jennifer Harbison, Eliza Thomas, Sarah Harbison, and Amy Ayers are the victims she advocates for this week.  It’s a case that has been told before, many times, but it’s a case that SHOULD be told time and time again until answers are found.  Beth didn’t necessarily lighten things up with this week’s haunting.  She covers the Haunted Hill House from Mineral Wells Texas.  Anything you can think of that would make a place a haunted location happened in this home!  It’s a spooky one for sure.  To add to the hangover Beth chose the Fright Night in the Grove Cocktail for this week’s episode.  Why? Well, listen to the episode and find out 😉

31 years ago on Dec 6, 1991 in Austin, TX four horrible murders were committed. It was a Friday night at the I Can’t Believe It’s Yogurt Shop in a strip Mall. Jennifer Harbison, 17, and Eliza Thomas, 17, were working the closing shift. Shortly after 9pm they were joined by Jennifer’s 15 year old sister Sarah Harbison and Sarah’s best friend, 13 year old Amy Ayers. All four were active, ambitious, hard working, animal loving young women whose lives were taken far too early, leaving holes in their families and the communities’ hearts. To this day, no one has been arrested in the Yogurt Shop Murders, but with the small amount of DNA found at the crime scene and with advances made in DNA analysis yearly, the killers are sure to be uncovered. Someone out there must know something. If you have any information about the Dec 6, 1991 Yogurt Shop Murders please call the Austin Police Department, 512-974-5000. Let’s Never forget Amy Ayers, Jennifer Harbison, Sarah Harbison, and Eliza Thomas, rest in peace angels.

The Haunted Hill House in Mineral Wells TX was built in 1892 by a woman named Fannie Yeager. With it’s history of pain, death, devil worship and the occult it’s no wonder that Hill House is known as one of the most haunted, darkest houses in the US. EVP readings, disembodied voices and crying, and scratches are just a few of the unexplained things that have happened to investigators and visitors at Hill House. Oh, and we can’t forget the demon, Toby, that seems to dominate over the house. Could Toby be the shadow man in the front yard beckoning passerby’s to enter the grounds and Hill House itself? This is one place that even Beth refuses to visit!

Maurice Pierce (16), Forrest Welborn (15), Robert Springsteen (17), and Michael Scott (17) were questioned for the murders, but had to be released because there was no evidence against them. In 1999 the four men were again questioned. Michael Scott and Robert Springsteen were arrested and convicted, but years later the convictions were overturned on constitutional grounds and their DNA did not match what was found at the scene. https://truecrimegarage.com/blogs/true-crime-garage/posts/austin-yogurt-shop-murders-81-82
