Maple Place Villas is a gated community in West Bloomfield Township, Michigan, that is manned by a security guard 24/7. It is the kind of community where elderly people go to retire and the lawns are all freshly manicured. However in May of 2011, the community was rocked by a shocking murder that revealed family strife, teenage rebellion and fatal consequences. It was a murder case that spawned great division and at its very core, was a messy and tragic story where the only common denominator was that every single person involved had regrets.SPONSORS -BESTSELF CO - Thank you to Betterself Co for sponsoring this episode!

“No body, no crime.” I’m sure that’s a sentence that many of you have heard before. However, that a massive misconception. While pressing murder charges without a body is certainly much more difficult, murder can be established, even with the most significant piece of evidence missing. In Deltona, Florida, in 2013, a woman and her two children vanished, sparking one of the largest searches in Volusia County history.PATREON - https://www.patreon.com/morbidologySPONSORS - JUNE'S JOURNEY - Thank you to June's Journey for sponsoring this episode!

According to the Georgia Department of Family and Children Services statistics, in 2012, the agency reported 152 deaths of children that they had been in contact with. This was an alarming average of almost three children per week. Then the following year, DFCS came under scrutiny once again, when a young girl was found dead and their records indicated a long history of abuse claims.PATREON - https://www.patreon.com/morbidologyShow Notes: https://morbidology.com/morbidology-the-podcast-57-emani-mossPodcast Promo – Brew CrimeTwitter: https://twitter.com/brewcrimeFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/brewcrime/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brewcrime/Audio Credit:Ever Mindful, On My Way, Sincerely & Evening of Chaos - Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)Density & Time - Water LilliesDark Tranquility - Anno Domini Beats - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6mBav72AkELicensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 Licensehttp://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/Mattia Cupelli - http:...

56: The Herring Murders

In early August of 2015, Vermont was rocked by a shooting spree which culminated with the murder of a social worker. The grim murders sparked intense debate on gun control, mental illness, social services and security. The stolen lives tore apart two families, including one that was forced to deal with the aftermath of knowing that one of their own was responsible.

Wondery Presents: GURU: The Dark Side of Enlightenment

When we face challenges in life, we seek answers from people we believe can help us. When tragedy strikes an exclusive retreat with a self-help superstar, many people are left to wonder: how far is too far? James Arthur Ray was an Oprah-endorsed self-help teacher who achieved fame, fortune, and influence. But friends and family members of his followers questioned his unorthodox methods, and tried to stop him. From Wondery, the makers of “Dirty John,” “Dr. Death,” and “The Shrink Next Door,” comes a story about the dark side of enlightenment.

Wondery Presents: Generation Why

54: Jamie Rose Bolin

Cannibalism is arguably one of the most taboo crimes of all. Although most societies connect cannibalism with ancient Amazonian tribes or even rumors of devil worshiping rituals, fantasies of cannibalism are not entirely uncommon among killers, even more so if their motive for murder was sexual or sadistic. In Purcell, Oklahoma, in 2006, a little girl vanished, and her disappearance would lead to one of the most heinous cases the world has ever seen.
