About Us

We are a couple out of the New York City area that has always had a fascination with not just true crime but human nature in general. What drives a criminal to commit a crime? What makes a person's crimes escalate? Is evil something one is born with or does it manifest over time? On this bi-weekly podcast we want to discuss some of the crimes we have discussed for years. We hope you enjoy!

Episode 79: Christmas 1990 | A Holiday Massacre

EIn today’s episode, we are celebrating Christmas in June as we travel back to the Christmas of 1990 where the extended Tiede family had a beautiful wood cabin in the secluded back country of Summit County Utah. The family usually gathered at this location throughout the summer months but they made a point to always visit the location around Christmas time. But this year, as the members of the close knit family make their way towards the cabin that is only accessible by snowmobile, they find that two men have been waiting for them to arrive. What the Tiede family thought was going to be their Christmas vacation turned quickly into a fight for survival. patreon.com/truecrimecouple Sources: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/the-tiede-case-two-killers-two-outcomes-justice-served/ https://www.cbsnews.com/pictures/crime-scene-photos-deadly-home-invasion/35/ https://medium.com/true-crime-addiction/tiede-cabin-murders-rips-through-a-family-true-crime-1f4773216730 https://www.deseret.com/1991/5/...
