Murder Of The Phantom Twins


Tales of classic scandals, scoundrels and scourges told from historic newspapers in the golden age of yellow journalism...

The Trial Of The Mother of Dolls

Episode 240 is one of those cases where you just know that someone is off their rocker, but it’s hard to figure out exactly who. Things get weird when a husband charges his wife with murdering twin babies that he never saw. So what was he pushing around in the double stroller the last couple of months.

Culled from the historic pages of the Munster Times, the Chicago Tribune and other newspapers of the era.
