She became one of the most influential people in California when she co-founded Stanford University in 1891. Jane Stanford was widely beloved for her forward-thinking, liberal ideals—but she also earned a few enemies. And when she was murdered in 1905, one question sent shockwaves through California: Who disagreed with Jane enough to kill her?
Once the princes disappeared, rumors and theories spread about who killed them—or if they were really dead at all. None of the speculation mattered to their uncle, Richard III, though. With the boys gone, he could finally claim the throne. But the new king soon realized that holding onto power would not be so easy.
In 1483, two princes got caught in the center of a bloody war for the throne of England—and became one of the biggest murder mysteries in British history. After the princes' uncle realized they were the only thing standing between him and his life-long quest for the crown, he locked them in the Tower of London. What happened next has remained a mystery for hundreds of years.

On January 3, 1970, the body of a young teaching nun was found in a Baltimore suburb. Cathy Cesnik was a devout Catholic and beloved by her students… But in the months before her murder, she’d left her teaching job and hung up her habit. Was her strange behavior just a coincidence—or a clue?

On May 18, 1962, Canadian beauty queen Alexandra Wiwcharuk went for a walk… and never returned. Her body was found 13 days later, buried in a shallow grave just blocks from her home. Local police had no idea where to look for a killer—and the case was already two weeks old.

After eight-year-old Buddy Schumacher went missing in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin in the summer of 1925, his dead body was found beaten and gagged in the woods. Many suspected the local vagrants—but the investigation went through multiple suspects, and even a couple confessions, only to be left wide open.

Your partisan comments are NOT welcome here. Bullying and thuggery (as you are demonstrating by this post) is the ONLY way he will win again

OK, let me 1st say, i like parcast shows. I regularly listen to quite a few of them. they are informative, well made and entertaining. i even don't mind the fake newscaster voices used by the hosts. well thats the good parts done. Parcast in my opinion seem to consider the regular listener as having short term memories. if they took away the "recap" after every attempt at an ad break, the episodes would only be 10mins long. Parcast seem to be quite patronising against their listeners. maybe they might someday explain why they feel the need to belittle the listener and hold us in such contempt. I will continue to listen, and hope they start to hold us higher in regard.
