Here’s one of our listeners’ most requested episodes of 2019: Stories of her exploits on Rum Row in the early 1920s made Gertrude Lythgoe a tabloid darling.

There is no way Silvia told Stephanie, "I sure wish my daddy was here.".......Silvia had a brain injury by now, she was incoherent and slurring her speech at this time.I would have loved to have had a piece of that bitch , Gert.Bless that childs soul.I feel her pain and it was just so pointless.I don't care how many pills that bitch took, everyone noticed something was wrong but not one did anything.Everyone was at fault.

I can't blame Mary for this, especially because the only thing she did was put herself at risk in the hopes of getting her family some financial help.

Vili was 12 years old when she started sexually abusing him. I live in the area and remember it vividly.

I've always wondered why females torture the children. Nine times out of ten a man just shoots the kids and they don't suffer.

I wish they did more modern women. The cases from the 1800s or early 1900s aren't as interesting
