The Unsolved Case of Lauren Smith-Fields
On December 12, 2021 Lauren Smith-Fields was discovered deceased by her date from the previous night Matthew LaFountain, 37 inside her Plymouth Street apartment in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Let me start this case off by saying that no criminal investigation has been opened. In fact, the last person to see Lauren Smith Fields alive was not even questioned.

The Case of Amber Guyger
Do ya’ll remember this lady named Amber Guyger, that drunk cop that stumbled her way to the wrong apartment, basically broke in and shot the black guy that lived there. You would have thought they would have thrown the book at her after the Tamir Rice and Stephon Clark thing, among many protests that year. Anyway, she only got 10 years for murder…muckduck…and gonna be up for parole in 2024. Back out here, going into the wrong apartments all over again. But now or at least since back in November, her lawyers are trying to make her sentence less. Yes. They are appealing the conviction and asking for it to be overturned, arguing that the shooting was in self defence. Have we done this case? No…lets talk about it. I’m not sugar coating nothing for this episode though.

Tonight we bring you the horrid case of Skyler Neese. This is one of those cases that has a layer of social media to do with it. A pretty thick layer.

BTK: Part 1
I think BTK takes the cake for having the longest run, a span of like 17 years. Now we've been talking killers and serial killers this entire time, but none like this. The home invasion serial killer type. Mass shootings? Sure. Family wipeouts? Let's talk about it. But so far, this season...we've talked about eating people, wearing people, sexual mutilation...mutilation mutilation. Killing people just for sexual gratification.

Now I gotta trigger warn you for this one. This one is a doozy, and might turn your stomach so for our listeners please use discretion when listening to this episode, because this guy was known for picking off coed hitchhikers all over California in the 70’s with extreme prejudice, and in gruesome detail. We may have to add more numbers to the FTG scale for this one.

Aileen Wuornos
This week's case we are talking about air quotes “the first woman serial kill.” Of course, she was not the first, she's not the last, but in the sense of the word serial killer, the first woman that comes to mind is... Aileen Wuornos. Just like Dahmer and the cases before this that we’ve talked about, it wouldn’t be a serial killer season unless we put Aileen on the board.

The Case of Miranda Barbour
So let me tell you about the two dumbest killers i've ever done an episode on. Not one but two, usually its just one. Not only did they not get away or try, but they basically turned themselves in. first in blood and firewater history that a couple, two people, can't keep a story straight, and...and...i don't believe half or most of it. Besides our victim being stabbed 20 times, I believe that for sure.

Today’s case takes place in Honolulu, Hawaii on November 2nd, 1999. Now I hadn’t heard of it before, but we are 40 some odd episodes in and we have covered mass shootings before. It stood out to me because, it is like one of those things in life that let you know, the worst possible thing in the world can happen in some of the most inconspicuous places in the world, with some of the most inconspicuous people, it could be the guy you sit beside in class or the chick two cubicles down that hates your guts.

A full blown birth of a creepypasta, delivered to the urban legend family.

Just like the rest of the creepypastas, no one ever saw it for real for real. We are going to talk about the Momo Challenge. This urban legend was born in Japan.

The Hello Kitty Murder
In my search to find some kinda case that has a spooky paranormal type inclination, something that I could tie back to an urban legend of sorts...and I found one, however just like the last episode I really should put a trigger warning in this episode because to some, you’d say it was worse than the black dahlia case. So I’ll start with the urban legend part, but with a twist. Welcome to blood and Firewater, the case we are talking about to day is the Hello Kitty Murder.

The Sodder Children: Up in Smoke? Or Smoke and Mirrors?
So the story of the Sodder children is a sad one, and it happened on christmas day which is a sad multiplier, and the case is closed, and its to most in the true crime community one of those cases that will never find its resolution because, not only were there bodies not recovered in the fire, but there was no evidence that they were even in the house. A pure nightmare if your a parent so i would like to take this time to issue a disclaimer that this case contains child murder...potentailly. If talking about child murder is a trigger for you, trust me it is for me too. But the story must stay alive, someone knows something and we as true crime podcasters have that responsibility to share the story in hopes that it will hit ears of someone who knows something.

In light of the murder of George Floyd, we have come together in solidarity to use our platform to speak up against racial injustice and amplify the voices of black podcasters that deserve more recognition.

“Clueless” The Story of Brittany Murphy and Simon Monjack
It all started with one simple google search...So 16 google searches later, I realized I slipped and fell down a rabbit hole that I never knew existed. Was Brittany Murphy, the up and coming movie star of my time, the co-star of some of my favorite movies of all time, murdered? The first cause of death that came to mind was the most obvious...drugs...but she was an advocate for not using drugs, ironically. No sickness anyone was aware of, no unpaid debts, weird sex fetish? Nothing??? So what else do we got? Did the husband do it? This woman was once one of my favorite actresses...can you help us?

The Unsolved Murder of Martha Moxley
This is actually one of the few cases I’ve heard of where authorities had just as much to do with the getaway as the killer. Much like the Jon Benet case, the police department lacked the experience to properly handle a case of this magnitude and they shit the bed, and this case is much like that one. However, the police didn’t murder this 15 year old, so who did? Was she a victim of some transient coming off the highway? Perhaps an accidental death by a family member? Or was it those those damn Skakel kids from across the street...This is the story of the unsolved murder of Martha Moxley. And Rashad’s absolute worst fear... Losing a child to a murderer, and they walk free

Luscious Boyd aka Lucifer
So, I would like to think that I have a good judgement of character when I meet new people, sometimes I just go with my gut but in the end I’m still here and no one has tried to kill me...yet, but a fear outside of being murdered in general, is being murdered by a complete stranger. Think of last 5 true crime cases you’ve heard, were the killers related to them in some kind of way? Significant others, co-workers? Exactly. I’d hate to discriminate on who kills me, but the chances of the killer being caught are way higher if they are related to me somehow. My (Rashad2nd worst fear is to be killed by a complete stranger
