    On July 3, 2014, 15-year-old Megan Nichols disappeared from her Fairfield, Illinois home. Megan was dating an 18-year-old named Brodey Murbarger, and the relationship had caused a rift between Megan and her mother. There were a few cryptic clues left behind at the home, one was Megan's cell phone which had been completely wiped. Another was a note that Megan had written that contained very strange word choices and phrasing. Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the disappearance and murder of Megan Nichols. Megan's body was more than four years after she disappeared. After she was discovered, the police quickly zeroed in on her boyfriend Brodey Murbarger, who, by that time, had moved on with his life. Brody has been arrested and charged with Megan's murder, but his case has taken quite some time to get through the courts. This is a case that we'll have to watch closely to see what comes out at trial and whether a jury finds Brodey guilty or not.

    In 1960, three young people, Maila Bjorklund, Anja Tuulikki Maki, and Seppo Boisman were murdered in Finland while they were camping. A fourth person, Nils Gustafsson, who was with the group was injured but survived, and later became a suspect. This is one of Finland's most infamous unsolved murder cases. It rocked the country at the time it occurred and some people are still wary, to this day, about camping because of the stories that have been told over the years. Join Mike and Morf as they cover this infamous unsolved murder case out of Finland. A blond man was seen by a number of eyewitnesses walking away from the campsite. Some eyewitnesses were put under hypnosis. The police centered their suspicion on the lone survivor Nils Gustaffson. They took him to trial but he was ultimately acquitted. But Nils was not the only person around Lake Bodom to garner suspicion over the years. There were a number of people who have been linked as possible suspects to these horrific murders.

    In 2011, Florida teenager Tyler Hadley killed his parents and then held a massive party at his house. Many people, including Tyler, called it the party of a lifetime.

Join Mike and Morf as they discuss this infamous story out of the state of Florida. Tyler had been on a downward spiral, and his mother was so concerned she'd had him involuntarily committed to a mental health facility.

And, he had told some friends of his plans, including the fact that he would end his life. What went so wrong to cause a teenager to murder the two people who loved him most in the world in cold blood? You can help support the show at patreon.com/criminology.

Wanted to like it!

After listening to both TCATT and TCATT Unsolved we were very excited to take the deep dive into Criminology, but after ten or so episodes find it really suffers from the lack of repartee between the two hosts. It's like they're reading from scripts from different rooms. I find I'm constantly rewinding because it just does not hold my attention as the other two podcasts do. I plan to push forward as there are 160 + episodes to go and hope somewhere along the line they have managed to improve on what is now a very mediocre presentation. Gibby, you are truly missed!

wow... just wow

closest a listener can get to being inside the killers mind without actually crawling in there.

LOVE the detail.

not sure if you guys read the comments but one suggestion Morf... you sound like you are reading an 8th grade report sometimes. maybe add a little more personality to your facts... when your interviewing your organic and its fluid and you can tell you're engaged. when going over past crimes or the background you're very monotone and like you don't want to be there.

but really you guys. you do a fabulous job.

Brilliant!

Could have done it in a more conversational way but otherwise great. Loved the one about Ireland, fun to see if they manage to pronounce places right haha. They did a great job!
I was born only a few months before in Dublin(26/01/1993), my GP is in Sandymount havd never heard of this case. h
