The Phantom of Heilbronn

The Phantom of Heilbronn

2021-09-1301:13:00

“The eyes are not responsible when the mind does the seeing.” — Publilius Syrus Fear compelled her heart to build up to a terrifying and deadly 100 mph crescendo… Shallow, rapid half gasps emanated from the 62-year-old widow as her skin turned a pallid blue… the Monster garroting her with steel wire from her kitchen. Slow… FAST! … Slow… FAST! … Slow. The hands of the Monster were possessed by the brute strength of a seasoned bare-knuckle boxer and the dexterity of an accomplished concert pianist — completely enveloped by fury spawned in the latter circles of hell. FAST! (and sustained as the widow squirmed, trying in vain to fight back) Lieselotte Schlenger expired on the floor of her beloved kitchen that day in 1993. Her death marked the opening of the Pandora’s box that was the Phantom of Heilbronn case — though no one would realize this for another eight years. The Phantom of Heilbronn case exposed glaring problems in forensic science and what happens when universal cognitive biases taint an investigation — all wrapped up in a tale that rivals the best crime fiction. Like a malevolent Proteus in Greek mythology, the Phantom was a ghostly, shapeshifting boogeyman (or woman) terrorizing the populations of three countries. The Phantom changed and became lesser known when (s)he was pursued by law enforcement. It would take more than mere mortals to catch this Monster. Law enforcement would have to use the best of science at the time, combined with questioning their own cognitive biases and the deepest logical connections between both forensic and behavioral evidence. That last part gets even harder when one of your own is assassinated while eating and the alt-right hurls itself — Nazi salutes first — into your investigation. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/realmonsters/message

Did David Berkowitz act alone when he brought terror to NYC as "the Son of Sam"? --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/realmonsters/message
Samantha’s crying cranked in David’s aching head like a Dante-esque buzzsaw from one of the inner Circles of Hell that Friday night April 13, 1973. He. Could. Not. Take. It. His week was hard enough. “Oh, WHY did I drink so much tonight?” he thought as he tried to get much-needed rest in the next room while waiting on the children’s parents Clive and Elsie to arrive home from Elsie’s shift as a popular local bartender. They should be only about 20 minutes, David thought, pillow over his head to try to keep out the loud machinations of the demon spawn in the next room. The incessant wailing made him glad his relationship fell apart – that he was 21 and not saddled with kids. Then that one moment’s bliss was obliterated again by the crying in the next room. The Kids. Kids. Kids. Unemployment was making David feel (generously) “neutered” in having to lean on good friends like this – even though he rather liked the children: Paul (5), Dawn Maria (2), and Samantha (almost 1). Still, like rusted nails on a chalkboard, the high-pitched crying made his skin crawl. The sound was visceral, lighting a fire in his bones – all-consuming, hellish, and causing flashes of sharp pain in his forehead and behind his eyes. KIDS-The KIDS-KIDS It felt like some unseen force was impaling his organs from the inside. He yearned to jump out of his skin and escape because… He. Could. Not. Take. It. That was when an idea hit what was left of his brain: still taking trips off the diving board into the pool of warm beer and Irish whiskey that his liver and brain were floating in. The Kids. THE Kids. THE KIDS! (the cadence and volume of the word echoing in his ears like a siren’s song from Hades.) He stumbled down the basement stairs looking for a blunt instrument. Something had to be done… (his heart going into overdrive – adrenaline powering it like a spark plug! The pain was intensifying! Sharp like a pickaxe split his skull!) THE KIDS-KIDS-KIDS! KIIIIIIDDDSS! What resulted from the drunken actions of one man would tear Great Britain apart in grappling with an unspeakable national tragedy. Yet, David McGreavy did not just kill three children as we shall see. It would also stir profound existential questions about human nature as a whole; specifically, what can drive a normal man to become the “Monster of Worcester” by engaging in a psychotic level of bloodshed that will forever be known in England as the Friday the 13th Murders? The answer is a case study on what may be the single most important and unseen motivator for seemingly unexplainable violence from people with no prior history of it... --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/realmonsters/message

Real Monsters: Josef Fritzl

Real Monsters: Josef Fritzl

2021-04-1801:15:42

The darkest spawn of hell can sometimes be lurking in harmless, safe, innocent, social disguises. Such was the case of 17-year-old Elisabeth Friztl who was kidnapped, raped 3,000 times, and kept as a sex slave by her own father for 24 years. She would rear several “basement” children by him in the mean time. Her harrowing escape from her private hell and the incredible gravitas she showed in the face of her abuser is something we can all learn from. The 17-year old opened her eyes in the pitch black. Her head spun like the wheels on the bus she had hopped to Vienna some time ago. Pain coursed through every vein, muscle and neuron as she attempted to steady herself and get off the cold concrete floor; it’s grit soiling her beautiful rust-colored hair. She could not see in the dark, humid cellar. When she blindly tried to get up, she was yanked back down with a tremendous force echoed by the cacophonous clank of chains attached to a metal loop in the floor. She heard the slow dripping of water in another room, and the scurry of rats and roaches somewhere close. Then the cellar’s lock slowly started to turn. The sound of heavy steps on the creaking wooden stairs filled her with profound terror as a flash light beam blinded her… causing her adrenaline to pump 100 miles an hour, not knowing exactly what to expect. Little did Elisabeth know what happened next was but the start of her 24 year personal hell at the hands of the man she loathed most in the whole world: her own father, the Monster of Amstetten, Josef Fritzl... https://medium.com/the-true-crime-edition/josef-fritzl-87eac97c0837 Help the podcast run!
