Psycho, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, and The silence of the Lambs; all have one thing in common, Ed Gein. His story is so gruesome and horrific that it’s no surprise Hollywood picked up on it. Gein grew up in a very abusive home, yet his mother was his world, he all but worshipped her. After her death he cordoned off the areas of the house that his mother had used most frequently, making the areas a shrine of sorts, Psycho anyone? Gein dug up bodies from the surrounding cemeteries and then progressed to killing two women. What he did with the bodies and how that correlates with the listed movies, well, you’re just going to have to listen to the episode……And, yes, Beth does feel very sorry for Gein, listen and you’ll know why.

Summerwind Mansion, also known as Lamont Mansion, was built in the early 1900s. It sat close to the West Bay Lake and began its days as a fishing lodge. In 1916 it was bought and renovated by Robert Patterson Lamont. The first account of the mansion being haunted happened shortly after Lamont and his family moved into the building. Since then there have been a series of owners, each with their own stories of hauntings. Shadow figures, spirit attachments, disembodied voices, cabinet doors and windows opening and closing by themselves….but the oddest phenomena was through blueprints and pictures it seemed as if space and time were distorted at Summerwind Mansion. Say what?

In 1957 Ed Gein was charged with the murders of Mary Hogan and Bernice Worden. He pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity and was sentenced to confinement in mental institutions. https://www.britannica.com/biography/Ed-Gein

You’ll have to use your imagination to see the grandeur that Summerwind Mansion was in the past. Photo by Fox Valley Ghost Hunters https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/wisconsin/ghost-tour-summerwind-wi/

Over time Summerwind became more and more dilapidated, perhaps this is what the spirits wanted all along? On June 19, 1988, the mansion burned to the ground. It was reported that the fire was caused by a lightning strike, but was it? https://paranormalmilwaukee.com/news/a-second-look-summerwind-mansion/

The mansion today is just ruins with a stone wall and two stone chimneys jutting up from the ground. Perhaps there are still spirits that linger around the ruins, but from this bright and sunny photo it looks like trees and undergrowth are the only inhabitants. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Summerwind_chimneys.jpg

It was April 5, 1984 in Pleasanton, CA. 14 year old Tina Fealz was walking home from school by way of a shortcut running under the 680 freeway. A short time later her bloodied body was found. Tina had been stabbed 44 times. The police were not short of suspects, but one by one they they fell off the list. In this episode Bettina covers the ins and outs of the case, introducing listeners to Tina Fealz, her untimely death and the men who were questioned in the years following the murder. This is not an unsolved crime, the killer is behind bars, but will he soon be paroled?

Beth covers movies and their sets that are reported to have been haunted. Curses claiming the lives of actors and members of their families. Strange illnesses affecting actors. Objects moving around the movie set. Listeners will be stunned after hearing the unexplained activities happening on the sets of Amityville Horror, The Conjuring and The Omen…just to name a few of the movies Beth covers.

One you’ve all heard before… but, how much of that story is actually true?? Well, she’s here to tell you AND pretty much ruin the story for you… sorry!!!

H.H. Holmes, the man , the myth, the legend. Most of us have heard of him, of his terrible hotel in Chicago with dead end hallways and locked rooms, and a shoot that Holmes would use to send the dead women to the basement. We’ve heard about the way he tortured the women and then horribly kill them, getting rid of their bodies in the incinerator in the basement. The stories are vast, gruesome, and dare I say, intriguing. But for the most part everything you have heard about the infamous H.H. Holmes are false. Beth will cover the REAL story of Holmes. Yes, he was a bad man, he was a swindler and a cheat, but did he really kill the 27 women he claimed to have murdered? Listen to this week’s episode to find the answer.

In 1995 unearthing an engraved 15″ by 20″ rock buried in his yard, Gilbert Woods thought it would make a great addition to the rock garden surrounding his fountain. Boy, was he wrong! Strange things started happening to the family shortly after finding the rock, shadow figures were seen in the house, the children complained of being awakened at night by someone touching their feet. Then Gilbert’s wife Trudy lost her eye sight for three months for no explainable reason. After having an unexpected heart attack Gilbert gave the rock to their family friend, Linda Klyst in 1979. Then she began having serious problems, including a friend’s death. the rock was handed off to parapsychologist, Evelyn Paglini. She too started experiencing strange things, as did her assistant,  Linda Heracek. Evelyn Paglini seems to be keeping it a secret as to where the rock is at this time. If you come across the rock, may I suggest to stay clear of it. The Jane Adams Hull House Museum at the University of Illinois at Chicago is the oldest building in the center part of the city. And with it being the oldest building come a lot of stories and legends, including a hovering ghost and a “devil’s baby” dropped off on Jane Adams’ front steps. Where did the baby come from? To answer that Bettina shares with you two, ummm, fantastical legends.

Herman Mudgett, AKA H.H. Holmes, was a swindler and a cheat. He is also considered America’s first known serial killer, but did he kill the 27 women he claims to have murdered? Or the 200 people the Newspapers, at the time, headlined he did? https://www.britannica.com/biography/H-H-Holmes

The Murder Castle. According to sensationalist reports, the space featured soundproof rooms, secret passages and a confusing maze of hallways and staircases. But did it? Photo: Chicago History Museum/Getty Images https://www.history.com/topics/crime/murder-castle

The Englewood Post Office now sits on a portion of the site once occupied by the famous “H.H. Holmes Murder Castle.”   https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/englewood-post-office

The Hull Manson became the first settlement house in America. It was founded by Jane Addams and Ellen Gates Starr in 1889 after they took over the abandoned Hull Mansion built by Charles Hull in 1856. Buildings were gradually added until the settlement house covered a half a city block. https://www.britannica.com/topic/Hull-House

I thought I’d use a cute hovering Casper the Ghost, but can you imagine waking in the early morning hours and opening you eyes to a hovering woman ghost right above you? Supposedly that is exactly what Jane Addams, and her guests experienced in Hull Mansion.

October 5th, 2017 61 year old Teteteke Gqotsi underwent abdominal surgery at Stellenbosch Hospital in Stellenbosch, South Africa. The next day he vanished from his hospital bed. 14 days later Teteteke’s body was found in the corner of the ceiling of the hospital. Cause of death was released to the family, but not to the public and how Teteteke even got up to the ceiling is unknown. On May 10, 2019 53 year old Sandile Sibiya broke his femur and was rushed to Durban’s Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Hospital ( South Africa). On the second day after his surgery Sandile disappeared from his hospital bed. On May 24 Sandile’s body was found in a corner of the ceiling above the hospital’s storage room. Autopsy results were released to the family, but not to the public. Again it is unknown as to how Sandile entered the ceiling. Both men were recovering from surgery, neither man could have hoisted himself into the ceiling. there was no evidence of foul play, the time between a nurse seeing the patients and the time they disappeared was only a matter of a few minutes. Listen as Bettina covers these two bizarre stories and the theories that attempt to explain this mystery.

The year was 1959 – and according to a Soviet Criminal Investigation a “compelling natural force” led to the death of 9 hikers in the Ural mountains.  The group has become known as the Dyatlov group. Hypothermia was determined to be the number one cause of death of most of the members of the hiking group, but the injuries found on some of the bodies raises more questions than answers. Crushed rib cages, skull fractures, missing eyes, and one victim was found with no tongue. Radioactivity was even found on some of the bodies. Are you baffled yet? Beth does a great job covering this case. Giving us a glimpse into each of the hiker’s lives, so that we see them as the individuals they were and not just 9 experienced hikers that died horrific deaths. She shares this case from its beginning as the nine university students set off, she reads parts of the member’s journals, the different stops the group made on their journey, and the horrible findings when the bodies were discovered. There are many theories as to what caused the deaths, some of which Beth covers also…..is that photo of a Yeti? She leaves us hanging, so join us next week for part 2.

I (Bettina) once again apologize for forgetting my mic. Packing for Maui was fast and furious, my recording equipment lay forgotten in my office, but even without a mic, I think you’ll be able to pick up on the way I feel about this week’s murderer, Pam Hupp. Manipulative and beyond greedy, this woman pulls no punched, she literally kills to get more, more, more. Many of you have heard about Pam Hupp, she was a pretty big name in the True Crime world, and beyond, several years ago. Then Netflix did the three part, “What About Pam” series, which once again brought Pam Hupp’s name to the forefront. As you listen to this week’s episode, you’ll find out what a terrible, evil, and conniving woman Pam is. AGGGG! It just makes me angry thinking about it. Give us a listen and let us know, did you too feel the evil emanating from this average looking, mild mannered woman?

Gratefully, Beth shares a very active site that helps to bring the true crime to the back of your mind. She covers The Beattie Mansion also known as “The House on the Hill”. It sits at 1120 Main St, St Joseph, MO, built in 1854, it was the home of Armstrong and Eliza Beattie. In 1880 having died with no heirs the mansion was sold to the Ladies Union Benevolent Association. They turned it into a shelter for homeless and suffering people actually naming it, “Home for the Friendless”, how depressing is that? In 1895 the house was converted into the Memorial Home for the Aged, in 1995 the house was used as a group home for the mentally ill and substance abusers. In 2004 it was bought by private owners who wanted it converted into a bed and breakfast. So much history with so many sad people living within its walls, is it any wonder it is known as the most haunted building in St Joseph and possibly even one of the most haunted in the US? Listen as Beth covers this very active house, so active that it is almost impossible to NOT witness some paranormal activity while visiting. This is definitely on our “have to go visit” list!

Pam was facing the death penalty for the murder of Louis Gumpenberger, To avoid this penalty she entered an Alfred Plea, which admits there is evidence stacked against the defendant, but they do not admit guilt in the case. Pam received life in prison for the death of Louis. She was also convicted of the murder of Betsy Faria, the trial is ongoing with the prosecutor asking for the death penalty. https://www.nbcnews.com/dateline/pam-hupp-avoids-death-penalty-plea-faces-life-prison-2016-n1019511

Because of the many distressed souls this mansion housed throughout the years it is no surprise that the Beattie Mansion is very haunted. https://thelanding.missourirealtor.org/blogs/missouri-realtors/2021/10/06/missouris-haunted-homes

Glinda Sodemann, 19, Doris Oehring, 11, Marlene Peters, 20, Wendy Wilson, 16, Lori King, 19. These are the names of the five women from the Fairbanks, Alaska area that were murdered between 1979 – 1981. Investigators linked the women to one killer because of the way the women had been killed and the placement of their bodies, in a wooded area close to Eielson Airforce Base, outside of Fairbanks. Finding the murderer was not an easy task, but finally in March 1983 Thomas Bunday was arrested and was interrogated in Wichita Falls, TX, where the Air Force had transferred him from Eielson. Even though evidence was found at Bunday’s house connecting him to the murders and he admitted to killing the women he could not be arrested because there was no arrest warrant, so he was let go. Listen as Beth covers the sequence of events leading up to finding Bunday and what happened after investigators released him after their interrogation. This is a very interesting, but not widely known case.

Fairbanks, Alaska became incorporated in 1903. 123 years ago. Since that time Fairbanks has slowly grown to its current population of 32,702. The city has a history and with that comes paranormal activity. Bettina couldn’t limit herself to just one site in town, and in fact, left out some sites. Listen as she covers 4 locations and their “otherworldly” residence.

This ghostly mist appeared as just as paranormal investigator Jessie Desmond picked up a male voice saying “HI”. https://lonelyhepkat.blogspot.com/search?q=Birch+Hill+Cemetery

The Westmark Hotel where the “huge man” resides. Many reports are of this apparition pushing the bed, poking people in the shoulder, and running a finger along the carpet. The “huge man” likes room 277 in particular, so if you’re staying in Fairbanks and want to “meet” him ask for that room. Please get back to us if you see him. https://www.valisemag.com/haunted-places-in-fairbanks/

127. Tracey Richter / The Haunted Squirrel Cage Jail in Iowa


She claims that a family friend and another man broke into her house to attack and frame her – she also claims that they were sent by her ex husband. She survived and killed the man who was attacking her. But, the truth that lies behind the death of young 20 year old Dustin Wehde could be far more sinister. Bettina and Beth cover the state of Iowa in this week’s episode… and Bettina introduces you to this woman, Tracey Richter. Beth moves on to the paranormal portion of the episode; covering the haunted Squirrel Cage Jail. A “Lazy-Susan” style jail!  Cheers to the craziness of this episode, and Cheers to all of you – wishing you all a happy new year!

Tracey Richter, listeners fasten your seatbelts. This woman is UNBELIEVABLE! She seems to leave chaos, wreckage and pain where ever she goes. She’s beautiful, very smart, and if she doesn’t get her way, she’s scary. Tracey married John Pittman, a medical student going into plastic surgery, in 1989. They had a son, Bert, in 1990. The marriage spiraled out of control and the couple was divorced in 1996, but not before Tracey accused John of sexually abusing their son. John, who in all actuality was the better parent of the two, was found innocent of the accusation, but Tracey wasn’t done with him yet. Their custody battle was extremely hostile and lasted for years. Tracey met and married Michael Roberts, from Australia, shortly after her divorce. The marriage showed cracks right away, but Michael was determined to stick it out. They had two children, Noah in 1998 and their daughter Mason in 2000. John Pittman was still fighting Tracey for custody of Bert, actually asking for full custody. Tracey would not only lose Bert, but also the monthly child support she was receiving. Her answer to this dilemma was one in which a young man was horrifically killed and lies were told. Was Tracey a hero that saved the lives of her three children and herself when two intruders broke into her home? Or was she a sadistic murderer who used the life of an innocent young man to get her out of the child custody battle with John? The answers lie in the pink notebook found on the front seat of the car belonging to Dustin Wehde, the deceased young man. Tune into this week’s episode as Bettina covers what lead up to and happened after the murder of 20 year old Dustin Wehde on Dec 13, 2001.

Council Bluffs, Iowa in the 1800s was a place that needed a jail, but the town didn’t have a lot of money to give to this project, so a very interesting concept was thought up. The town built a “human rotary” or “lazy Susan” jail that would only need one prison guard. What in the world is that? Beth explains the concept and history of Squirrel Cage Jail. It’s very interesting how this three story building, that held up to 90 prisoners, including men, women and children, worked and how it also could go terribly wrong. That this place is haunted should not surprise anyone. Heavy footsteps, voices and full body apparitions. Beth covers these and other paranormal activity found in the Council Bluffs Squirrel Cage Jail.

20 year old Dustin Wehde was shot 9 times on Dec. 13, 2001. Was he an intruder or an innocent family friend who had been asked to come over? Photo credit; Dateline https://thecinemaholic.com/dustin-wehde-murder/

Richter was eventually found guilty of the 1st degree murder of Dustin Wehde. She received life in prison without parole, but to this day she maintains her innocence. https://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/news/crime-and-courts/2014/07/10/tracey-richter-mother-linked-witness-harassment-search-warrant-computer-flash-drives-seized/12444821/

We know “stranger danger”, kids from preschool on up know of “stranger danger”, but how much do we really know about the dangers of the internet? On Dec 3, 2002 Kacie Woody and her family learned the horrible reality of the existence of online predators. In this episode Beth talks about some safety precautions to take to keep you and your family safe online. She goes on to talk about the case of Kacie Woody.

This year, 2022, is the 20th anniversary of Kacie Woody’s death. In life she was a bubbly, energetic girl whose favorite color was yellow. She was kind and had a smile she readily shared. Her beautiful life was taken from her by a man, David Fuller, who she met in a chat room on the internet. https://int-missing.fandom.com/wiki/Kacie_Woody

125. The Waukesha Parade Attack


On November 21, 2021 a tragedy struck the city of Waukesha, WI, when a man drove an SUV down the Christmas parade route.  He killed 6 people, physically injured over 70, but absolutely devastated an entire community.  We saw and heard about the man’s antics in court as he represented himself. The media reported the absurd actions … but, what about the victims? We can not lose sight of the loss that this man caused. We can not lose sight of the beauty and strength of the Waukesha Community. Cheers to you Waukesha, and cheers to our listeners.

November 21, 2021, the town of Waukesha, WI held their annual Christmas Parade. Floats, the High School band, the town’s sports teams, including the Blazers baseball team, and the Milwaukee Dancing Grandmas, among other hometown participants. The sidewalks were crowded with Waukesha residents and visitors. Parents and grandparents sitting in lawn chairs, thermoses of hot cocoa close at hand, and children sitting on the curbs ready to sprint out into the street to grab candy thrown out by the parade participants. People were cheering and laughing, everyone having a good time, until they weren’t. The unimaginable happened, a red Ford Escape was barreling down the street.  Darrell Brooks, in a fit of rage, was driving the Ford. Running through police barriers, stop lights and stop signs. With no regard to anyone’s life or safety, he drove down the parade route killing 6 people, physically injuring over 70 and mentally impacting everyone attending the parade.

Brooks’ antics in court were ridiculous and extremely disrespectful to the victims. The jury found Brooks guilty on all 76 counts stemming from the attack, including six counts of first-degree intentional homicide with the use of a dangerous weapon. On Nov 16, 2022, Judge Jennifer Dorow imposed the mandated sentences, ordering Brooks to serve consecutive life sentence without the possibility of parole for each of the first-degree homicide counts. On top of that he received 762.5 years for the counts of reckless endangerment and 6 years more for bail jumping Beth followed both the trial and the sentencing and shares, with us, what she learned and the court proceedings.

The wreckage caused by this horrendous act was physically, emotionally and mentally devastating. https://naijasuperfans.com/waukesha-christmas-parade-horror-timeline-of-how-the-carnage-unfolded/

Brooks’ biggest fear is to be forgotten. Lingering in his jail cell for “hundreds” of years, his fear just may be realized. https://www.cnn.com/2022/11/16/us/darrell-brooks-waukesha-sentencing/index.html

Blue lights shine throughout Waukesha to honor the victims of the 2021 Christmas Parade. https://www.fox6now.com/news/waukesha-parade-tragedy-moment-of-silence-prayers-for-the-victims

The Waukesha Christmas Parade, which for 60 years has been held on the Sunday before Thanksgiving, will now be held two weeks later for a number of reasons including emergency and police staffing. The 2022 parade is scheduled for Sunday, December 4.

124. Rajneesh in Rajneeshpuram / The Legend of Heceta Head Lighthouse


A little different take on “true crime” this week in Bettina’s story.  She shares about the “religion-less teacher” who leads with his religious teachings…Rajneesh.  He led by a vow of silence in his Rolls-Royce driving down the streets of the little city his followers created, Rajneeshpuram in Oregon.  With his devout followers, laughing and crying, meditations, sex, and the color red Rajneesh and his “right hand woman” Sheela, changed the little town of Antelope, Oregon forever!  Beth takes her paranormal story to the coast of Oregon – to Heceta Head. Where there’s the most picturesque bed and breakfast and Lighthouse that’s “haunted” by a ghost named Rue?

Chandra Mohan Jen, aka “the sex guru”, later changed his name to Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh (or just Rajneesh), and then even later to Osho. He started holding meditation camps and recruiting followers in 1964. He grew in popularity, not only in India, but throughout the world. He promoted dynamic meditation and free love. By 1981 Rajneesh had so many followers that they ran out of room in the ashram in India. Rajneesh sent his right hand woman, Ma Anand Sheela, to the US to buy land. 64,229 acres in central Oregon were purchased, right outside of the small town of Antelope in Wasco county. It took only 3 years for the followers of Rajneesh to build a city, Rajneeshpuram. A city complete with an electric power plant, a sewage plant, townhouses, fire and police departments, and a large shopping center with eateries and boutiques (all of which sold only red clothing, the color the followers were asked to wear). After the city was built and Rajneesh and his followers settled in, the trouble started. Listen as Bettina covers time before Rajneeshpuram, its seven year existence, and into the end of the community in Oregon.

Along the Oregon coast is a 200 foot bluff, Heceta Head, that juts out into the Pacific Ocean. Nestled on the bluff is a 56 foot tall lighthouse that has shone its light since 1894. The life of the lighthouse keeper and his two assistance was a bit dismal. Each had a house for the men and their families, but that was pretty much all that was there. It was a very isolated life. Now days the lighthouse keeper’s house and the lighthouse have been restored and serve as a lovely, quaint Bed and Breakfast, with a residential ghost named Rue. Rue is said to have been the wife of one of the lighthouse keepers. Legend has it that her daughter fell from the bluff into the sea and drowned. Rue still searches for her lost daughter. Beth gives more information into the history of Heceta Head Lighthouse, the present Bed and Breakfast, the ghost, Rue, and how the name was given to the ghost,

Thousands of Rajneesh’s followers would line the street of Rajneeshpuram every afternoon to pay homage to him as he drove slowly by in one of his 94 Rolls Royces. https://www.stuff.co.nz/entertainment/tv-radio/104308772/wild-wild-country-i-did-research-at-rajneeshpuram-and-here-is-what-i-learned

Heceta Head Lighthouse and the Lighthouse keeper’s house were put on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heceta_Head_Light

The lighthouse keeper’s home is now beautifully restored as a Bed and Breakfast. Rue, the ghost, is said to move things around, to sit on the beds, often leaving her imprint, and turn lights off and on, among other things. https://www.hecetalighthouse.com/latest-news/bpage/2
