Skidmore Missouri is another town well known mainly because of a crime that occurred there. But then when you start looking at this small farming community with a post office, rail line and hotel - but a number of crimes have occurred there in modern times - we explore the historical crimes.   This episode also covers an overview of the infamous story and murder of Ken McElroy in 1981. The third episode about shooting in the main street of a small town.
Skidmore Missouri has a present-day population of 250 people which is really interesting and likely wouldn't be known so infamously if not for a murder that appears to have happened with most of the townspeople knowledge. We'll talk about that in the next episode. But let's find out about this town, through the butcher, baker and candlestick maker or hotel keeper, nurses and townsfolk.   It is named after a surname of person - Marteny Skidmore who settled in the area around 1864 and then in 1880 and planned the town around the Nodaway Valley Railway depot and line. It appears from what I've discovered online is that it was mostly a farming community that had a railway to ship their produce to larger areas.   Join us on a live discussion: www.hauntedhillspod.eventbrite.com.au
This episode will look at the people, history, crime and legends of Wilson's Promontory, Victoria - A tourist destination in Gippsland. As with all history episodes we're going to meet the people because it's the regular people who make the town or National Park. As this is a National Park we're going to share as much history as we can of here and surrounding areas reliant on this area. Then the last part will be ghost stories.   Other episodes you might enjoy: If you're interested in more Shipwrecks, a beach in Portsea, the Cheviot was named after the shipwreck there - the story is on the public episode and a paid episode goes through more of the people of the Cheviot.   Lakes Entrance and Mallacoota also had these stories also.

Content Warning (CW) the last story before the bonus content discusses infanticide and suicide (it's not usually something I give a warning for, but in this case, I think it is important.)   Today Moe, Victoria has a reputation for a crime. It appears it wasn't always like that as Matt points out many of these crimes take place in Coalville and Narracan, or by people outside the town.    Join us as we explore the true-crime of Moe Victoria.    Learn more about our advertisers or support us by support them: https://www.hauntedhillstours.com.au/about-haunted-hills-advertisers/   SMALL INFAMOUS TOWNS AND THE BIG STORIES   Enhance your listening experience: https://www.patreon.com/Hauntedhills   Our website: https://www.hauntedhillstours.com.au  Here you can search for what you've heard on our podcast.   Share a story tip or idea: https://www.hauntedhillstours.com.au/share-your-story-with-haunted-hills/   Leave us a voicemail: https://www.speakpipe.com/HauntedHills   Get more Haunted Hills: Hauntedhills.redbubble.com     These are related episodes that have similar themes you might want to revisit: For 'successful' or 'complete' bank robbery stories, they are in Brown Coal Mine True Crime.  Available on Patreon called "Tragedy on the banks of the Latrobe River"  Rosedale Crime Episode  Portsea True Crime - Soldiers The Traralgon Crime case has a case of infanticide.

A social history of Roswell New Mexico. You might know this infamous small town as the place aliens crashed (well it was at Corona...) anyway this episode isn't that one - yet.    As always we're going to met the Butcher, Baker and candlestick maker of Roswell - only the people were pilots, cattle ranchers, telephone company employees and apple growers. Which you might notice are some of the elements involved in the Roswell Incident - but not these people.      I originally recorded this with Brenden from Master Talk YouTube however there were technical difficulties on my end of the recording. It was a great chat, and he was so insightful and thoughtful.  He also gave me pointers to re-record the intro. I can still put the original at the end for you to decide a comparison, although you won't hear Brendan.   Join us for live discussion in upcoming episodes for $16.91 you can join in the conversation.   Learn more about our advertisers or support us by support them: https://www.hauntedhillstours.com.au/about-haunted-hills-advertisers/   SMALL TOWNS BIG STORIES   Enhance your listening experience: https://www.patreon.com/Hauntedhills   Our website: https://www.hauntedhillstours.com.au  Here you can search for what you've heard on our podcast.   Share a story tip or idea: https://www.hauntedhillstours.com.au/share-your-story-with-haunted-hills/   Leave us a voicemail: https://www.speakpipe.com/HauntedHills   Get more Haunted Hills: Hauntedhills.redbubble.com

In the Morwell History episode, we explored the agriculture sector, so I continued the theme in the Morwell True Crime episode.  I thought I'd check out the crimes in the agricultural field. I thought I'd just find more dirty slaughter yards and stolen horses. Well.... well, well Once we sampled those crimes then moved on to more serious crimes, murder, public indecency or sexual assault, and child abuse.   Join us for live discussion in upcoming episodes for $16.91 you can be part of the conversation   More information on our webiste Learn more about our advertisers or support us by supporting them: https://www.hauntedhillstours.com.au/about-haunted-hills-advertisers/   SMALL TOWNS BIG STORIES   Enhance your listening experience: https://www.patreon.com/Hauntedhills   Our website: https://www.hauntedhillstours.com.au  Here you can search for what you've heard on our podcast.   Share a story tip or idea: https://www.hauntedhillstours.com.au/share-your-story-with-haunted-hills/   Leave us a voicemail: https://www.speakpipe.com/HauntedHills   Get more Haunted Hills: Hauntedhills.redbubble.com
