Welcome to Appalachian Mysteria, a true-crime podcast series that all started with Mared & Karen: The WVU Coed Murders and Big Savage: The Death of Alexander Stevens. As the podcast has grown we decided to combine our feeds, join forces with Jam Street Media, and work on Season 3! So, if things look a little different, that's why. Stay tuned!

In Episode 4, we examine just a few people on the long, deplorable list of suspects in the murders of Mared & Karen.
In this episode, a hard-working state trooper is fired, the governor lashes out at the press, a lost form of media is revisited, and we finally meet the man convicted of killing Mared & Karen.
The final chapter of Clawson's story. We take a close look at his trials, his multiple confessions, and his potential innocence. We also see how Mared and Karen live on, even almost 50 years later.
In Episode 7, we flash forward to 2006 when a new investigation begins. We discover that the case affected those involved so strongly, they could not let it go. And we update listeners on where the case stands now.
In this, the final episode, we talk to a forensic pathologist about the state of the bodies, several characters from Parade of Horribles come back into play, Geoff reveals the identity of his top suspect, and Sarah offers an alternative theory. And finally, we hear how the case may soon be solved.
As the true-crime world revels in the decoding of a cipher written by the infamous Zodiac Killer, the team at Appalachian Mysteria have unearthed a discovery of their own. With the help of Dr. Korshi Dosoo, Sarah has decoded the mystical copper plate first introduced to our story in episode two of Mared and Karen. In this episode, we discover the real story behind the plate and learn more about the mystical Morgantown figure who wrote the mysterious text. 2:19 – Introduction of the Copper Plate5:29 – Introduction of Dr. Korshi Dosoo: Team leader of the project "The Coptic Magical Papyri: Vernacular Religion in Late Roman and Early Islamic Egypt".  That project is centered at the Julius Maximilian University of Würzburg us on social media:FacebookInstagramTwitterA Jam Street Media Production.
Alexander Stevens is found dead in Savage River State Forest. Evidence of a ritual is discovered. A female companion emerges from the woods naked, injured and hypothermic. A strange and confusing tale begins.  
We try to find out who Alex & Megan really were. The second case file discovered by reporters makes the whole situation even more confusing. Pretrial hearings set the stage for an unusual prosecution.
Sarah and I visit High Rock for ourselves, where a new realization makes the case even more baffling. The trial begins with testimony from Steven Moon and the EMT who first arrived on the scene.
Three defense witnesses all make a claim that could swing the jury's opinion. But is there any evidence? One of those witnesses helps to arrange a third police interview, only 48 hours after Alex is found dead. Megan's story has one more important change.
Sarah and Kendall get personal, Alex's therapist takes the stand, and a stranger testifies about finding Alex on her doorstep one week before High Rock.
Kromatic Media sets legal precedent in Maryland by obtaining Megan's 911 call from the morning Alex was found dead. Jay and Tristan – Alex's father and sister – take the stand.
Two medical examiners take the stand. Megan testifies about the entire ordeal, closing out the trial.
A stranger approaches Teresa as the jury deliberates. The verdict is delivered, and we speak with two jurors about what went on behind closed doors.
