This week, in Fishkill, New York, we look at a murder from James' hometown, where a longtime friendship seemingly falls apart rapidly, leading to one of the worst scenes that we've talked about.  Absolute brutality for what seems like very little motive, followed by an attempted cover up that just made it even worse. It's a mess, and we try our best to put the pieces together, but did they end up with the right people on the end?    Along the way, we find out that not everyone knows they're at a crossroads, that four day long cocaine parties might be a bad idea, and that some things just don't burn away!   Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    New episodes every Thursday!    Donate at: patreon.com/crimeinsports or go to paypal.com & use our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things Small Town Murder & Crime In Sports!    Follow us on...    twitter.com/@murdersmall    facebook.com/smalltownpod    instagram.com/smalltownmurder    Also, check out James & Jimmie's other show, Crime In Sports!

This week, in Dean, Texas, a man who seemingly has it all, ends up having less life than he would have ultimately have liked to have, but who is responsible? The not so happy wife? Her best friend & husband's assistant? The kids? His business partner? Luckily for police, some very fortuitous breaks come their way, and a picture of a cold blooded, planned out, and absolutely diabolical plot emerges.  Will anyone pay the price?   Along the way, we find out that dirt can be expensive, that cranberry juice can be dangerous, and that sometimes, not everybody involved gets what they deserve!   Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    New episodes every Thursday!    Donate at: patreon.com/crimeinsports or go to paypal.com & use our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things Small Town Murder & Crime In Sports!    Follow us on...    twitter.com/@murdersmall    facebook.com/smalltownpod    instagram.com/smalltownmurder    Also, check out James & Jimmie's other show, Crime In Sports!

This week, in Ely, Minnesota, a frozen puddle of blood opens up a mystery that turns out to be way more complicated than anyone could expect. A friendly night of partying among what seems to be strangers, turns into an attack that seems to really be personal, but is it? Or just a weird impulse that turns both hideous, and deadly? This one has all kinds of mystery, and brutality!!   Along the way, we find out that towns are named for all kinds of weird reasons, that banana liqueur is never a good idea, and that frozen blood puddles are always going to draw attention!   Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    New episodes every Thursday!    Donate at: patreon.com/crimeinsports or go to paypal.com & use our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things Small Town Murder & Crime In Sports!    Follow us on...    twitter.com/@murdersmall    facebook.com/smalltownpod    instagram.com/smalltownmurder    Also, check out James & Jimmie's other show, Crime In Sports!

This week, in Hartland, Maine, what seems like a simple missing person, turns out to be much more, after an unexpected visit to the local police station by a person with a wild story to tell sends everyone out on a hunt for a body. What they end up finding blows everybody's minds, including the town, the police, and probably even the dogs that assisted in the search. Things somehow gets even more crazy from there, as this unfolds into one of the oddest tales we've told!   Along the way, we find out that not all of Maine has that Stephen King book charm, that you can only push people so far, and that thighs are apparently the most easily hidden body parts!   Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    New episodes every Thursday!    Donate at: patreon.com/crimeinsports or go to paypal.com & use our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things Small Town Murder & Crime In Sports!    Follow us on...    twitter.com/@murdersmall    facebook.com/smalltownpod    instagram.com/smalltownmurder    Also, check out James & Jimmie's other show, Crime In Sports!

This week, in Whiteside, Tennessee, we head to the backwoods to follow the tale of an absolutely horrible killer, and some very odd side characters, including a man who currently lives in a tent, deep in the trees, while hiding from police. The inevitable murder is a callous, and horrible act, that definitely didn't need to happen, but to one depraved person, it apparently did!   Along the way, we find out every holler has its own strange culture, that it's a bad sign when your teenager leaves the house in the back of a pick up truck, and that some people have no shame, or even humanity!   Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    New episodes every Thursday!    Donate at: patreon.com/crimeinsports or go to paypal.com & use our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things Small Town Murder & Crime In Sports!    Follow us on...    twitter.com/@murdersmall    facebook.com/smalltownpod    instagram.com/smalltownmurder    Also, check out James & Jimmie's other show, Crime In Sports!

This week, in Houston, Delaware, a 911 call from an extremely unlikely source reveals a brutal & awful scene, with very little evidence, and one, very important thing missing. Investigators, including the FBI, are baffled, until a very creative technique gives a glimmer of hope. Luckily, this leads to the culprits, and one of the strangest, most insane tales ever told!    Along the way, we find out that no one knows anything about Delaware, that you can't just claim a baby as your own, and that some people are just way luckier than others!!   Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    New episodes every Thursday!    Donate at: patreon.com/crimeinsports or go to paypal.com & use our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things Small Town Murder & Crime In Sports!    Follow us on...    twitter.com/@murdersmall    facebook.com/smalltownpod    instagram.com/smalltownmurder    Also, check out James & Jimmie's other show, Crime In Sports!

This week, in Ross Township, Pennsylvania, a man with a tragic past finds a new life, only to have it taken away, once again? Or is he the one responsible? Things become a bit more clear when we find out that the terrible, and seemingly accidental death has actually happened before. In exactly the same way. Will he get away with it twice??   Along the way, we find out that Pittsburgh loves good food, that it's almost impossible to drown in the tub, without any water, and that you can sometimes get away with murder, once, but don't make it a pattern!   Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    New episodes every Thursday!    Donate at: patreon.com/crimeinsports or go to paypal.com & use our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things Small Town Murder & Crime In Sports!    Follow us on...    twitter.com/@murdersmall    facebook.com/smalltownpod    instagram.com/smalltownmurder    Also, check out James & Jimmie's other show, Crime In Sports!

This week, in Moses Lake, Washington, the dynamic in a group of young friends becomes very weird, when everyone decides to live in a one room apartment together. The problem is, some are runaways, one is pregnant, some are just plain dumb, and one claims to be a 19 year old Mafia hitman & high Satanic priest, named "Shadowlord". This all leads to a disturbingly brutal crime & even more inept cover up!   Along the way, we find out that not all of Washington state is rainy, that teenagers can flip their whole image on a dime, and that you shouldn't have 10th graders help you cover up a murder!!   Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    New episodes every Thursday!    Donate at: patreon.com/crimeinsports or go to paypal.com & use our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things Small Town Murder & Crime In Sports!    Follow us on...    twitter.com/@murdersmall    facebook.com/smalltownpod    instagram.com/smalltownmurder    Also, check out James & Jimmie's other show, Crime In Sports!

This week, in Hanover Township, New Jersey, a bright, popular cheerleader disappears from the mall parking lot, leaving her car keys still in the ignition. This causes widespread fear, until another young woman is attacked, then it turns into complete panic. Who would do such horrible things? A very horrible person, of course. And how this person ends up getting caught is one for the ages!   Along the way, we find out that it's very easy to start a UFO hoax, that maybe when someone who kills 2 people, may kill more people, and that when a cheerleader goes missing, people notice!   Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    New episodes every Thursday!    Donate at: patreon.com/crimeinsports or go to paypal.com & use our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things Small Town Murder & Crime In Sports!    Follow us on...    twitter.com/@murdersmall    facebook.com/smalltownpod    instagram.com/smalltownmurder    Also, check out James & Jimmie's other show, Crime In Sports!

This week, in Clinton, North Carolina, where a storybook small town couple make a nice little life for themselves... or so it seemed. Under the surface of community & church, were secrets that nobody wanted to have come out in the open. Multiple plots, from all sides leads to one deadly night.  But who was killed? And who did it? This one is wild!

We check out a murder in East Amwell Township, New Jersey, where a 17 year old girl disappears from her own from porch on a lazy summer day. Where was she last seen? Going out with a strange man to chase down a loose cow... Only bad things could come of that situation. But is it true? Did something terrible happen, or was it just a teenager, taking off for while? We think you know the answer.

This week, in Hampton, New Hampshire, a surprise knock at the door isn't a friendly neighbor, bringing cookies, but is instead, a shadowy figure, with murder on the mind. Everyone is shocked when the truth comes out, as the murderer is one of the last people anyone would suspect... Until you do a little digging into his background. There's craziness, ninja weaponry, and one of the strangest motives ever!

This week, in Barnesville, Georgia, a gruesome Christmas Eve discovery has investigators processing a crime scene & doing autopsies on Christmas morning. What they find is equally obvious & absurd. A thin plot, somehow covered up for longer than it should have been, but questions still remain. At least we got a new Christmas song out of it! Along the way, we find out that Georgia never forgets, that 9 months pregnant women can apparently be very dangerous, and that a decomposing corpse is the worst gift to unwrap!!   Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    New episodes every Thursday!    Donate at: patreon.com/crimeinsports or go to paypal.com & use our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things Small Town Murder & Crime In Sports!    Follow us on...    twitter.com/@murdersmall    facebook.com/smalltownpod    instagram.com/smalltownmurder    Also, check out James & Jimmie's other show, Crime In Sports!

This week, in Gormania, West Virginia, a young woman runs out the door, after receiving a mysterious phone call, never to be seen again. A full on posse is organized, as well as the FBI, State, & local police, as a maximum effort is made to find this woman, hopefully alive. Everyone is the tiny town is a suspect, but will the case ever go down? Along the way, we find out that mountain people are really into pageants, that maybe you should go to the police academy before being given a badge, gun  & cruiser, and that just because you can't find a body, doesn't mean there wasn't a murder!!   Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    New episodes every Thursday!    Donate at: patreon.com/crimeinsports or go to paypal.com & use our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things Small Town Murder & Crime In Sports!    Follow us on...    twitter.com/@murdersmall    facebook.com/smalltownpod    instagram.com/smalltownmurder    Also, check out James & Jimmie's other show, Crime In Sports!

This week, in Brownstown Township, Michigan, a seemingly normal situation spins very quickly out of control, when a person begins to believe that other people may be possessed by demons... and we all know there's only one way to get rid of the demons, and that's murder! This truly bizarre tale gets even weirder with the post-murder behavior, and belief that 32 stab wounds shouldn't be fatal!  Along the way, we find out that Bret Michaels has a lot of songs about flowers, that someone, somewhere has a very strange pamphlet printing business, and that dead people don't sleep it off, and wake up, demon-free!!   Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    New episodes every Thursday!    Donate at: patreon.com/crimeinsports or go to paypal.com & use our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things Small Town Murder & Crime In Sports!    Follow us on...    twitter.com/@murdersmall    facebook.com/smalltownpod    instagram.com/smalltownmurder    Also, check out James & Jimmie's other show, Crime In Sports!

This week, in Anniston, Alabama, for the first time, we are doing a second case from a town! Why? Because the case is just that wild. So wild, that it involves mysterious illnesses, suddenly appearing twin sisters, and an armless best friend. A twisted mystery that seems solved, only to end up being even more of a mystery, before a very final ending! Absolutely nuts! Along the way, we find out Anniston is still pretty awful, that when everyone gets the same illness, it might not be THAT mysterious, and that some people will believe absolutely anything!   Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    New episodes every Thursday!    Donate at: patreon.com/crimeinsports or go to paypal.com & use our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things Small Town Murder & Crime In Sports!    Follow us on...    twitter.com/@murdersmall    facebook.com/smalltownpod    instagram.com/smalltownmurder    Also, check out James & Jimmie's other show, Crime In Sports!

This week, in Needham, Massachusetts, a mysterious death in the Boston suburbs turns out to be not as mysterious as originally thought, but is instead, much more twisted. A young man with excruciating similarities to Ted Bundy unleashes his darkest fantasies, but will insist on his innocence. What was found in his home was just disturbing & the main question we have is, how many more are there??  Along the way, we find out craft festivals sound boring, that there are certain signs that a person may be about to do something horrific, and maybe a person shouldn't get bail after he's carved pieces off of another human being!   Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    New episodes every Thursday!    Donate at: patreon.com/crimeinsports or go to paypal.com & use our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things Small Town Murder & Crime In Sports!    Follow us on...    twitter.com/@murdersmall    facebook.com/smalltownpod    instagram.com/smalltownmurder    Also, check out James & Jimmie's other show, Crime In Sports!

This week, in Golden Valley, Arizona, a very nice gesture leads to some not very nice murder.  Actually, it's vicious, nasty murders that make very little sense, and that's only the start. We can't say "why??" quite enough during this episode, as the brutality is just so out of proportion. And can a 14 year old girl really be part of a couple of adult's murder plan? This one will keep you head shaking, for a while! Along the way, we find out moonshine & chili are probably bad to eat & drink, with no bathrooms around, that you can absolutely be too nice, and that some people seem to have zero moral compass!!   Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    New episodes every Thursday!    Donate at: patreon.com/crimeinsports or go to paypal.com & use our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things Small Town Murder & Crime In Sports!    Follow us on...    twitter.com/@murdersmall    facebook.com/smalltownpod    instagram.com/smalltownmurder    Also, check out James & Jimmie's other show, Crime In Sports!

This week, in Fruitville, Florida, where a body is found in a drainage ditch, with its skull caved in. A peek into their life reveals a person that more people wanted dead, than liked them. At first the culprit seems clear, but the addition of extra witnesses & suspects confuse everything. This story is a crazy, wild ride, from start to finish! Along the way, we find out that you can hug goats, that when everyone you know wants you dead... maybe it's you, and that "a round face" might not be the best witness description!   Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    New episodes every Thursday!    Donate at: patreon.com/crimeinsports or go to paypal.com & use our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things Small Town Murder & Crime In Sports!    Follow us on...    twitter.com/@murdersmall    facebook.com/smalltownpod    instagram.com/smalltownmurder    Also, check out James & Jimmie's other show, Crime In Sports!

This week, in Lafayette, Indiana, a terrible, hideous murder makes investigators look in the wrong place, for a minute, before the culprit becomes very obvious. A person as deranged as anyone we've ever talked about, turns out to have their own twisted belief system that causes delusions of epic proportions. The murder is absolutely crazy, and the explanation is even more insane! Along the way, we find out that about the Feast of the Hunter's Moon, that you can't judge a librarian by their cover, and that when someone tells you that they think you're god... run!!   Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    New episodes every Thursday!    Donate at: patreon.com/crimeinsports or go to paypal.com & use our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things Small Town Murder & Crime In Sports!    Follow us on...    twitter.com/@murdersmall    facebook.com/smalltownpod    instagram.com/smalltownmurder    Also, check out James & Jimmie's other show, Crime In Sports!

Dorothy Molter was the last living resident of the BWCAW, in the 60s a million acres in northern MN became protected land. no permanent buildings, no motors, no glass - so by the time people reached Knife Lake, 30 miles NE of Ely, the root beer was so good after having nothing but water. she lived off the land, was also known as the Nightingale of the North for her help of wayward travelers. she was an absolutely phenomenal woman. learn her history before dissing her.

I wonder when these idiots will figure out that they're shows are cancelled because of insane government overreach, not because of the extremely tiny minority who just want to breathe free and be left alone. None of this was ever about saving lives, or they'd ban novelty cotton masks and neck gaiters too. Especially not for a nothingburger of a virus that has a amazingly low fatality rate, even with idiot doctors murdering people with unnecessary ventilation and banning safe and effective drug treatments. And even if there was 100% compliance (as opposed to the 99.95% or whatever the ridiculously high compliance rate we currently have), they'll never get their stupid shows back because a bunch of little dictators are having way too much fun with their newfound power.
