The Great Circus Murder Part 5



Here is part 5 of the Great Circus Murder of ‘Honest’ John Brunen. Two people have been arrested in connection with the case, but detectives are far from done investigating. As a matter of fact, they are maneuvering some interesting aspects of the law in order to continue their investigation of the case of the murdered circus owner which happened in March 1922. This episode of Real Crime also has part 3 of the vicious murder of Miss Florence Allinson in New Jersey. This installment covers the trial of Rufus Johnson but has quite a development at the end. Enjoy!

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.
