Interactive CASE Map



“This has quickly become my favourite Podcast. It is very professionally done and doesn’t stray into sensationalism. Minds of Madness ensures that the victim is treated with respect and I love the way that the episode usually ends with a close friend or family member speaking lovingly about the victim. It is rare to find a show like this that doesn’t glorify the killer and focuses on the victim and the facts – all the facts and theories even if sometimes the theories are extreme. Keep up the excellent work”


Excellent Podcast
