Joey LaBute ////// 27 


Nic & The Captain discuss the unsolved murder of 26 year old Joey Labute Jr. This case hits close to home and close to the heart. Joey was last seen having drinks with friends at a popular downtown bar in Columbus Ohio. His body was found in the Scioto River, March 29th, 2016. This case is extremely sad and hauntingly familiar. Almost 10 years prior to the day that Joey's body was found, a young professional man same age as Joey had disappeared from a busy downtown bar in the same neighborhood. As Columbus mourns the loss of Joey the city is reminded of the disappearance of Brian Shaffer.

OJ SIMPSON /// PART 1 ////// 25 

OJ Simpson /// Part 1 ////// 25


June 13, 1994 just after midnight, the bodies of Ronald Goldman and Nicole Brown are found near Nicole's condo. Both had been stabbed several times and Nicole's throat had been cut so severally that she was nearly decapitated. What would take place over the next several days and the polarizing trail are still fresh in our minds 20 years later. What has remained a mystery is the actions and movements of persons in the last few hours of June 12. Today we revisit this crime to go over the timeline of that day's events and present the evidence that sometimes is lost in the muck of drama and glamour. Did the famous football star kill his former wife and young Ron Goldman, we all know he was acquitted. We will discuss the evidence that points towards OJ's guilt and explore a few other suspects that you may not have heard of.

Who is the Slender man and truly why did these young girls comment such a horrific crime. Tonight we will venture into the garage and have a few beers and maybe just maybe we can make some sense of such a senseless act. To donate to the victim and her family, please go to

Dubbed the 44 caliber killer due to his weapon of choice, this crazed killer openly threatened police & the women of New York City & gave himself a new name, the Son of Sam. Grab a couple of cold ones but make sure to leave the garage lights on cause this story gets dark, real dark!
