We're just your average couple, living normal lives, who happen to be obsessed with everything related to true crime. Shortly after relocating to the great Pacific Northwest, we realized there were stories upon gruesome stories to be told from this region. And we want nothing more than to share them with you.

So come join us every first and third Friday of the month as we take a deep look into the dark and twisted. It isn't for the feint of heart, but we promise it will be worth it.

​And remember...what happens in the woods, stays in the woods.

Jess and Brice are back with new episodes! Thank you everyone for sticking in there with us while we were away! We had some much-needed time off but missed doing what we love and interacting with all of you.In this episode, we talk about an amazing survival story of a young woman and the man responsible for the torture and murder of her family. If child sexual abuse is a trigger, please know that we are tackling this topic in this episode. We do the best we can not to share details of these crimes, but please listen responsibly.Information from this episode:Newspaper Article on Murders and Kidnappings’s Crimes/ Background page Groene responds to news of Duncan’s death tells her story
The Canadian Greyhound Bus Cannibal Hello, friends! Join Jess, Brice, and our special guest Dean around the campfire while Mara takes the reins and tells us about the shocking case of the killing of young Tim McLean. Tim McLean was just 22 years old when he boarded Greyhound bus 1170 bound for Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. On the fateful day of July 30th, 2008, he lost his life to Vince Li. Mara tells us about the stabbing and eventual cannibalism that led to a standoff with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Portage La Prairie, Manitoba. Li was finally taken into custody and charged with second-degree murder but he would not be found criminally responsible for the crime due to mental illness. We discuss the profound impact this case had on the passengers of the bus and the family of the victim. Was justice served for McLean and his family? Should Li be able to rejoin society? Listen to the episode and don’t forget to give us your thoughts!

It’s 1989 and Sgt. Bill Foulk purchased a home in one of Tacoma’s worst neighborhoods. The street was home to one of the most notorious street gangs Washington has ever known, the hilltop street gang. Sgt Foulk and his neighbors witnessed numerous drug deals and illegal activities and reported this to authorities several times. But when that failed to garner a police response Sgt. Foulk had no problem confronting The Hilltop crips himself. They were tired of Sgt. Foulk’s threats, the Crips threatened and ambushed Sgt. Foulks' house but not before he invited some of his friends from the 2nd ranger battalion to his house for a BBQ and after 10 minutes and more than 300 rounds had been fired the Crips soon realized they were in a fight for their lives!!!!

DNA has been a marvelous tool in forensic science for around 20 years now. It has helped solve cold cases, long thought to be unsolvable. Used to fight wrongful convictions where there was little hope of the truth ever surfacing. But it has also been used to point to guilty people who hope to escape the criminal system.One of the true crime’s most well-known Detectives, Robert Keppel, who is known for his contributions to Ted Bundy’s investigations, takes center stage in working on one of the cases we will discuss.In this episode, we introduce you to a criminal that assaulted and tortured his victims until they died in the most horrible ways. Even one of Washington’s most seasoned detectives was stunned at the disgusting crimes and the scenes. While Morris Frampton was thankfully caught very quickly after being suspected in the brutal murders of Iantha Buchanan and Rosemary Stuart in 1977, the age of DNA evidence caught up with Frampton and brought justice for the family of a 3rd victim from 1976, Agnes Williams. Join us for our Season 4 Finale Episode, as we give you a wonderful example of just how important DNA is and what happens when the justice system gets things right.Information from this episode: * As mentioned at the end of the episode, we will of course cite our sources for information relayed in this episode. However, due to the graphic nature of the crime scene photos released of the victims, and what we felt was a lack of respect for Iantha Buchanan and Rosemary Stuart, we will not provide any links to the websites where the photos of the crime scene are displayed.The little we know about Morris Frampton Morris Frampton’s grisly crime Morris Frampton, Washington Serial KillerFrampton’s Appeal past catches up to Frampton on Robert Keppel that Keppel helped write on the topic of serial killers:Serial Violence: Analysis of Modus Operandi and Signature Characteristics of Killers (Practical Aspects of Criminal and Forensic Investigations) Psychology: Podcast that interviewed Detective Mike Ciesnyski
We have covered a lot of cases over the past few seasons that have left us scratching our heads and with little trust in the justice system. This one is no different.When Steve Titus was pulled over by police after a night out with his fiance, he fully cooperated with them, never thinking it would come back later and ruin his life. Just 2 short days later, he was in custody and facing sexual assault charges. He maintained his innocence throughout his statements, his arrest, and ultimately his trial. There are so many red flags, beginning with inconsistencies in the victim’s statement and the timeline to evidence that doesn’t match what the prosecutors claim happened. If it wasn’t for the work of one journalist, Steve Titus may never have been acquitted of all charges in July of 1981.While thankfully, his conviction was overturned, there are many that were not as fortunate. Even so, his life was never the same.Information from this episodeWiki Page on Steve Titus National Registry of Exonerations Henderson’s article “One Man’s Battle to Clear His Name”“Looking back at Titus Case”
