Fall River Satanic Cult Murders
By the late 1970s, Fall River, Massachusetts, a once prosperous industrial town turned seedy with decaying buildings and crime. A flourishing sex industry cropped up amidst the drugs and alcohol. Center stage of our story is Carl Drew, a Manson-like cult leader, pimp turned religious figure who recruited sex workers to join his satanic coven. After three women are murdered, the whispers of ritualistic killings began surfacing. The investigation leads down a dark path where perhaps Satan's power is an embellishment for murders that would've happened anyway. Lies, twisted involvements and satanic gatherings play out in this lurid tale of true crime. Intro music by Joe Buck Yourself Hosts: Heather & Dylan Packer Email: [email protected]
