In Episode 70

One of the most horrific and memorable true crime stories in recent history is the murder of 16 year old Sylvia Likens.  There have been murders with more victims, murders committed by serial killers and hardened criminals.  But most murders are carried out within a time span of hours or minutes.
Sylvia’s torturous death took months.  A teenager left to the care of a violent abuser has led to death in other cases, but in Sylvia’s case she was not abused by only one person.
Sylvia was systematically tortured by her caregiver, by her caregiver’s children, and by other children in the neighborhood.  Other adults saw Sylvia’s condition but no one helped her.  Join us for a discussion of an inconceivable murder that occurred in the 1960s.  But be forewarned: this is a case that will haunt you for some time to come.

  • (P.S. Dick, Uinta is pronounced “you-INN-tah”; just insert the “inn” syllable between the U and the tah in “Utah.” Another tough one here is Tooele, “too-ill-ah”.)

  • I’ve clicked on the title “A Husband’s Rage; the murder of Rachel O’Reilly,” and when I click the play button, Susan Smith’s case begins. This happened on another older episode that I’d hoped to listen to.
    Perhaps when you have time you could check it out and make sure the older titles are matched up with the correct content? I’d appreciate it, now that I’m finally a TIE-GRABBER, I want to watch every episode I’ve missed!
