The Amityville Massacre

Happy Halloween!! On this episode Joe & James take a look at one of the original horror stories made famous by film and books, the case of the Amityville Murders. Most of what is known is made up of local myth and legends. Broad sensationalism that overlooks the true horror in the case is peeled back in this episode of A Dark Tale. A closer look at the lives lost, the stories that were produced and the man ultimately held responsible for that vicious night in New York. This is the true story of the Amityville Horror: The DeFeo Murders.

Gary Heidnik

The 1980's is one of the most tumultuous decades in American crime history. Those years set the tone for the classic image of a serial killer or deranged madman lurking in the shadows. Gary Heidnik was one of those men, committing crimes that would inspire Hollywood fiction that reshaped the horror genre.

This week, Joe tells the Dark Tale of Gary Heidnik and the atrocities he would commit upon 6 women over the course of 5 months. In the winter of 1986/87, Gary Heidnik was hellbent on having his own harem of women hidden away from the rest of the world in his basement on Marshall Street in Philadelphia.

The Unexplained Death of Elisa Lam

This week, the crew is back together and we're talking about the circumstances surrounding the disappearance and subsequent death of Elisa Lam.  A 21 year old Canadian university student, who was on a solo trip along the west coast of the US before mysteriously vanishing without a trace leaving behind only a single eerie surveillance video.  The video itself has since gone viral many time over, and spawned many theories from murder to demonic possession. 

Many are still trying to crack the case and in this episode we'll review the evidence and bring own conclusions to the table.  What did you see in that video?

Let us know and leave a review for us if you like the show!

Conner & Brinley Snyder

A new episode, a new format. Joe takes to the mic solo in a case that is just as shocking as it is heartbreaking. Not to worry though, James will return in the very near future! 

In this episode, we're talking about the shocking deaths of two young children found in their home by their very own mother. 8 year old Conner and his sister, 4 year old Brinley died in September of 2019, but the story of their deaths sounds like something out of a Steven King novel and isn't over yet. What unfolds is one of the Darkest Tales told yet and this cannot be stressed enough. This is the story of Conner & Brinley Snyder.

The Bucks County 4

This week, Joe and James bring you a hometown horror story from the suburbs of Philadelphia...

In the summer of 2017, 4 young men were reported missing by their families. What would soon be uncovered in the following days seemed something like a twisted mafia-style slaying, but this wasn't the case at all. Join James and Joe as they discuss the details of what occurred on a secluded farm outside Philadelphia in July, 2017. This is the story of The Bucks County 4, Jimi Patrick, Mark Sturgis, Tom Meo & Dean Finocchioro.

The Case of DJ Fickey

DJ Fickey, a loved man and father of three, was killed on October 3rd 2016 and his death was ruled as a suicide.  

DJ's family, aware of the circumstances surrounding his death believe it should not have been ruled a suicide and have been using every resource available to them to get the word out.  Join us as we go over the details of the case using information provided by Amanda Shirley, DJ's sister, and as we sit in disbelief that this case never went further.  

If what you hear has you convinced there is more going on, consider helping Amanda by signing this petition to re-open the case:

All clips provided Amanda Shirley.  They have been edited for time, but no clips are edited to fit a narrative.

Clip of Amanda remembering DJ is pulled by this video which also covers her situation:
