Reverie means to daydream but sometimes when we zone out, intrusive thoughts can creep in. We might start to think about our anxieties and worst fears. Sometimes we get caught up in obscure thoughts about disturbing events occurring, or that have occurred, in the world. As humans, we can naturally become curious about these horrible happenings in life.

Paige narrates stories of crimes, sits down and talks with victims' loved ones, chats with other podcasters, survivors, and occasionally tells haunting, creepy stories. She is passionate about all aspects of these true stories. Shedding light on the dark, terrifying things that have happened, and still happen in the world, is very important to her.

Paige hopes that through these stories she can bring awareness to injustices, important issues, evil deeds that have taken place, and the scary reveries around us that hide in plain sight.

Young schoolboys in Freeport, a city in Grand Bahama Island, began to go missing in 2003. Constant conspiracies emerged and it caused Bahamians to question Haitian migrants.

Paula Jean Welden lived in Bennington, Vermont. The 18-year-old went for a hike on the afternoon of December 1, 1946. No one is sure what in the world happened after she left Bennington College campus that day. Eyewitnesses became unreliable. Police started to question if any of them even saw, gave a ride to, or talked to Paula Jean after she left her dorm, or if it was only someone who matched Paula’s description. With zero clues and investigating every tip, all that was left were many questions that people are still asking today.TwitterInstagramFacebookTumblrWebsitePatreonReverieTrueCrime@gmail.comSources

Alvin Neelley met Judith Adams when she was only 15 years old. He was 26. Instantly, the teenage girl felt cared for and adored the attention Alvin, a grown man who was completely in the wrong here, was giving her. She ran away with him shortly after they met and the two eloped. Alvin had a twisted mind and was grossly attracted to young girls. He and Judith would go on to commit crimes in Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee. Aside from forging checks and committing armed robberies, which was bad enough, Alvin and Judith began kidnapping, torturing, and killing young women and girls. They called themselves Boney and Claude comparing themselves to Bonnie and Clyde.TwitterInstagramFacebookTumblrWebsitePatreonReverieTrueCrime@gmail.comSOURCES:

I had the absolute pleasure of being on the podcast, True Crime Cat Lawyer last year. Elyse is a lawyer and it was very interesting hearing the legal aspects of this case. We discussed the case of Michelle Carter and Conrad Roy.Conrad Roy was 18 and his girlfriend, Michelle Carter, was 17 in 2014. Conrad struggled with his mental health for years, attempting to take his life in the past but he would always find a way to get help before it was too late. He had also been on psychiatric medications. Michelle was extremely manipulative with possible mental health issues of her own. Even though they only lived 30 minutes away from each other, they never spent time together in person. Michelle convinced him over texts, e-mails, and phone calls to take his own life.Grab your tickets to the Reverie True Crime virtual live show by CLICKING HERE!Date: Sunday, February 12thTime: 1pm PST • 3pm CST • 4pm ESTTrue Crime Cat Lawyer:INSTAGRAM: @truecrimecatlawyerTWITTER: @truecrimecatlawWEBSITE: truecrimecatlawyer.comFACEBOOK: True Crime:INSTAGRAM: @reverietruecrimeTWITTER: @reveriecrimepodFACEBOOK: @reverietruecrimeWEBSITE:

Dwayne Jones was a young teenager in 2013 when they were kicked out of their home in Montego Bay, Jamaica because their father thought they were "too feminine". Dwayne also quit school due to being harassed constantly. Jamaica is a homophobic environment with buggery laws still in place today. Eventually, Dwayne met two transgender young women, Khloe and KeKe, and started living with them in an abandoned house. Dwayne wore dresses, experimented with makeup, and accessories. Dwayne was finally feeling accepted and loved for their authentic self. In mid-July of 2013, the big secret of Dwayne being a cross-dresser was revealed. The one person Dwayne thought it would be okay to tell, while at a straight bar, went back and told a bunch of men. That was the beginning of what would become a colossal, tragic torture and murder.--Socials • Website • Contact • Patreon--Twitter: https://reverietruecrime.tumblr.comFacebook: ReverieTrueCrime@gmail.comWebsite:

he did not do these violent and sexually degrading things to her because he was "mad at Stanford" ffs. he did these things for sexually sadistic psychopath reasons. but the flawed reasoning behind the explanations conjured up by dudes, to explain the horrific actions of other dudes, is terrifying in itself.

if looking into this case one may take note that there is consideration for reduced sentences. One of these inmates, Karen Howell, has sure capitalized on her sex appeal in her efforts for a reduced sentence. it is disgusting and infuriating. Justice for the Lillelid family. And justice for all survivors of all forms of abuse and neglect, including sexual abuse, who are already unjustly stigmatized as it is -- but are even further stigmatized every time some evil POS does something horrible like this and then tries to blame it on their history of abuse. I do think it is vital to understand how a person with a history of abuse. or a person with learning disabilities, may be more susceptible to manipulation and coercion, and more prone to being lured in and preyed on by psychopaths.

Thank You, Lady, but I cared for the first episode, not this one. This one just seems to have a lot of she said, he said fillers. The original was from the heart. Thank You.

Couldn't hear/understand 95% of the interview of Bryan because of all the background noise. It would've been better if you'd read a transcript of it.

Why are 911 operators, universally, terminally idiotic morons? Is it a job requirement? Do they just hire the applicants with the tiniest IQs? it's truly painful to hear their dialogues.

thank you for doing an episode on these two. For some reason they are always over looked. I am from north of this area, but from what I was told, everyone was terrified and locked their doors. a couple other midwest murders.. The Clutter Family - Truman Capote wrote the book on the called "In Cold Blood" Sydney Loofe murder - this was very recent the trials just ended this last fall.
