Thai Murder Babes: The Praew Phenomenon

Preeyanuch Nonwangchai, Apiwan Satayabundit, and Kawita Ratchada are not household names in the west, but they took Thailand's media by storm after what they did to 23-year-old Warissara Klinjui. In May 2017, the Thai public became enthralled with a grisly karaoke bar murder case. Police quickly apprehended the three women responsible for the crime - and the so-called Thai “Murder Babes” became media sensations - with merchandise being produce in their honor. Men wanted them - women wanted to be them. Drewby and Yergy review this case and ponder how on earth three cold blooded killers became icons.

The Jars Killer | The Rainy Night Butcher| Hong Kong’s First Serial Killer | Monday Mini-sode |

Lam Kor-wan, Hong Kong's first known serial killer, worked as a taxi driver, which conveniently allowed him to pick up female passengers, strangle them with electrical wire, take them to his family home, and dismember them. Lam's English moniker, "The Jars Murderer", was coined after the police revealed that he had kept sexual organs in Tupperware locked away in a metal ammunition container under his bed.

Michael Alig & The Club Kids | The Death of the Party Monster | NYC Club Scene in the 90’s

Michael Alig was an American club promoter and convicted felon. He was the self proclaimed "King of the Club Kids," a group of young New York City clubgoers who became a cultural phenomenon in the late 1980s and early 1990s through their flamboyant costumes and their excessive use of party drugs. In March 1996, Alig and his roommate, Robert D. "Freeze" Riggs, killed fellow Club Kid Andre "Angel" Melendez in a confrontation over amongst other things, a delinquent drug debt. The pair then dismembered the body and disposed of Melendez's remains in the Hudson River, where they were later discovered by children playing on a beach in Staten Island.

BREAKING NEWS: First Woman To Be Put To Death Since 1953 [Set For THIS MONTH]

Lisa Montgomery took the life of Bobbie Jo Stinnett a 23-year-old mother in what seemed like an absolutely random and senseless act. She received the death penalty in October 26th, 2007, and a judge upheld the jury recommendation on April 4, 2008. She is set to be put to death on January 12th, 2021, making her the first woman to receive this on the federal level since 1953. So does Lisa Montgomery deserve the death penalty or should she be commuted to life without parole? Let us know what you think in the comment sections.

BREAKING NEWS: Samuel Little Dead at Age 80 [THE MOST IN AMERICAN HISTORY]

Samuel Little, arguably the most prolific serial killer in U.S. history, died at a Los Angeles County hospital on Wednesday. He was 80 years old, and had operated undetected for decades, primarily because he primarily targeted poor people of color and people who were estranged from their families.

MONDAY MYSTERY: The Mysterious Mad Gasser of Mattoon [WAS IT ONLY MASS HYSTERIA??]

The Mad Gasser of Mattoon (also known as the "Anesthetic Prowler," Friz, the "Phantom Anesthetist," or simply the "Mad Gasser") was the name given to the person or persons believed to be responsible for a series of apparent gas attacks that occurred in Mattoon, Illinois, during the mid-1940s.

More than two dozen separate cases of gassings were reported to police over the span of two weeks, in addition to many reported sightings of the suspected assailant. The gasser's supposed victims reported smelling strange odors in their homes which were soon followed by symptoms such as paralysis of the legs, coughing, nausea, etc.

Police remained skeptical of the accounts throughout the entire incident. Nevertheless, local newspapers ran alarmist articles about the reported attacks and treated the accounts as fact, going so far as to allege the culprit was an escaped German soldier in World War II. The attacks are widely considered to be a case of mass hysteria. However, others maintain that the Mad Gasser actually existed, or that the perceived attacks have another explanation, such as industrial pollution.

So, did The Mad Gasser of Mattoon even exist? Leave a comment and let us know what you think.

The École Polytechnique Massacre | The Montréal Massacre

This week, Drewby and Yergy discuss The École Polytechnique Massacre, also known as the Montreal Massacre, which was a mass shooting in Montreal at an engineering school affiliated with the Université de Montréal. Fourteen women were murdered and ten women and four men were injured.

On December 6, 1989, Marc Lépine entered a mechanical engineering class at the École Polytechnique and ordered the women and men to opposite sides of the classroom. He separated nine women, instructing the men to leave. He loudly stated that he was "fighting feminism" and subsequently opened fire, shooting all nine women in the room, killing six. Lépine proceeded through corridors, the cafeteria, and another classroom, targeting women for just under 20 minutes. He killed eight more before shooting himself in the head.

At the time, the incident was the deadliest mass shooting in Canadian history, only surpassed by the shootings in Nova Scotia taking place in April of this year.
