E98: Ian Brady and Myra Hindley (The Moors Murders)

February 24, 2020

The Moors Murders are some of the UK's all-time most gruesome murders, taking place from July 1963 to October 1965. The perpetrators of the Moors Murders were Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, a young couple obsessed with sadism and torture, whose sick fantasies quickly involved into the murders of five young Britons. By the end of their twisted crime spree, Brady and Hindley were England's most hated couple, a status that would last two decades until the arrests of Fred and Rosemary West. In the final chapter of our Deadly Love series, we tackle the life and crimes of Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, the Moors Murderers.

E97: Raymond Fernandez and Martha Beck (The Lonely Hearts Killers)

E97: Raymond Fernandez and Martha Beck (The Lonely Hearts Killers)

February 17, 2020

Raymond Fernandez and Martha Beck, the Lonely Hearts Killers, are one of America's most famous serial killer duos. The couple met in 1947, driving around the country to meet lonely older women. Today, the scam they committed is known as the lonely hearts scam - where the perpetrators gain the trust of a lonely (often widowed or unmarried) older woman with the objective of stealing money and jewelry from them, committing insurance fraud in their name, and sexually abusing them. Fernandez and Beck took the lonely hearts scam to new levels, murdering their victims to take them out of the equation so that they could move onto their next victim when the money inevitably ran dry. In the third part of our Deadly Love series, we take a look at the life and crimes of Raymond Fernandez and Martha Beck, the Lonely Hearts Killers.

E96: Gerald and Charlene Gallego (The Sacramento Sex Slave Murders)

February 10, 2020

From September 1978 to November 1980, Gerald and Charlene Gallego terrorized Sacramento, California and Reno, Nevada, claiming 10 victims during their killing spree. The victims mostly consisted of young teenage girls, whom Gerald Gallego used as sex slaves prior to their murders. Gerald, who had a long criminal history with arrests for armed robbery, sexual assault, and lewd and lascivious acts with a child, was obsessed with the idea of keeping sex slaves. These twisted fantasies led to what are now known as the Sacramento Sex Slave Murders, making Gerald and Charlene one of America's most famous serial killer couples. In the second part of our Deadly Love series, we discuss the life and crimes of the Gellego's.

E95: Ray and Faye Copeland

E95: Ray and Faye Copeland

February 3, 2020

Ray and Faye Copeland are known today as the oldest couple ever sentenced to death in the United States. Their crimes took place between 1986 and 1989, when drifters who worked on the Copeland's farm began to disappear without a trace. These drifters were used by Ray Copeland, a lifelong swindler, in an elaborate cattle buying scam that went on for years. Once the usefulness of these drifters was determined to have reached its end by Ray, he would kill them and bury them on nearby properties. In the first episode of our returning Deadly Love series, we look at the alleged crimes of Ray and Faye Copeland.
