This episode of Real Crime has a small piece about an African American boy who is kidnapped and sold, a WWII veteran goes on a killing spree, part 2 of the mystery of the floating torso, a New Jersey psychic is arrested for fraud, and a whole lot more!

Gentlemen Robbers and Part 1 of a female torso

In this new episode of Real Crime, I read a play by play of how a pair of gentlemen robbers took a group of card players for over $5000. The episode also features the first part of a 1909 mystery of a female torso that washed up on a creek in the suburbs of Detroit and a poem by Bonnie Parker of Bonnie and Clyde fame.

The first podcast

In this first podcast of the series Real Crime, I have picked out a mix of articles from Arizona to New Jersey, from the early 1800s to the mid-1960s. The news ranges from murder to assault with a couple of interesting unrelated news bits.

These articles are pulled from old newspapers. The writing itself is interesting, as is the language. It’s history, the kind that falls through the cracks and is forgotten, buried deep in newspaper morgues.
