Season 2 EP1: Darya The Tormentor Part 1

Posted by on 11:03 am in Featured, Killer Vibes, Podcast, Season 2 | 0 comments

Darya Nikolayevna Saltykova was born in Russia in 1730. She was born into a wealthy family who owned not only large amounts of land but also controlled masses of serfs who were required by Russian law to stay on the land they were born on.

Darya’s husband died when she was only 26 and that’s when she snapped. The servants who worked on the Saltykova estates started to vanish and people began to notice the female serfs would have blood on their clothes and showed signs of being beaten.

Many speculate what made Darya snap but her reign of terror lasted for six years with many of the nobles turning a blind eye to the plight of the Saltykova servants. Darya is now the most notorious female serial killer in all of Russia following in the footsteps of Elizabeth Bathory, The Blood Countess.

Season 2 EP3: The Hall and Mills Murders Part 1

Is true love worth dying for?

On Sept. 16, 1922, in Somerset, New Jersey the bodies of Eleanor Mills and Edward Hall were discovered possed under a crab apple tree. Eleanor’s hand had been placed on top of Edward’s knee and Edward’s hand placed behind Eleanor’s head. 

Scattered around the bodies were torn up love letters each written by the star-crossed lovers. Eleanor and Edward were both married and the affair had lasted almost two years.

But as the case unfolded the love affair was anything but secret and Edward’s wife might have known more than she originally stated to police.

Eleanor Mills and Edward Hall were found underneath a crab apple tree in Sept. 1922.

The Pig Woman testifies in court while still lying in her hospital bed.

Members of the Somerset community take pieces from the tree where the bodies of Eleanor and Edward were found under.

Season 2 EP4: Israel Keys Part 1

On February 1, 2012, 18-year-old Samantha Koenig was abducted from the Common Grounds coffee stand in Anchorage, Alaska. After the FBI tracked the use of her debit card in Texas, they identify Anchorage resident Israel Keys as her abductor and potential murderer. It was during the more than 40 hours of interrogation that followed that the FBI learned they were not dealing with a one-off murderer but one of the most deadly serial killers in recent American history.
