Episode 18: Maria Marten & Murder in the Red Barn

November 28, 2017

Note: In this episode we use an outdated term for the Romani people. We are very sorry and appreciate our listeners taking the time to set us straight!

On May 18, 1827, Maria Marten left home to meet her lover, William Corder, at the Red Barn, a local landmark in Polstead, England. One year later, her stepmother, Ann Marten, has a series of prophetic dreams which led to the discovery of Maria’s body buried under the barn.

The Red Barn murder, as it became known, captured the public’s interest, inspiring broadsides, ballads, and plays, and made the barn a tourist destination. In 1935, the story was first adapted for the screen in the British melodrama “Murder in the Red Barn”.

November 14, 2017

Between June of 1984 and August of 1985, a spree of home invasion robberies, rapes, and murders terrified residents of Los Angeles and San Francisco. The killer was given the nicknames “The Valley Intruder”, “The Walk-In Killer”, and most famously, “The Night Stalker.”
