Episode 50: The Murder of Gene Tate // There’s Something Odd About James

The Podversary Episode! Patrice and Marleah celebrate with friends and White Christmas Margaritas and talk stalkers, small-town conspiracies, night terrors, and children who know too much.  

The Murder of Gene Tate //

In 1960, 30-year-old Gene Tate was found dead on her garage floor by her eight-year-old son. She’d been strangled to death. The shocking murder of the former homecoming queen and mother of four made such an impact on the small Mississippi town of Columbus that it is still talked about today by families who lived there. The hunt for her killer and for justice was as all-encompassing in this little college town as the OJ Simpson trial.

There’s Something Odd About James //

Andrea Leininger and her husband Bruce had only just moved to Lafayette, LA when their two-year-old son James began having nightmares three to four times a week. What began as a normal, if disturbing, childhood occurrence began to take on new dimensions when James started spouting information he shouldn’t – couldn’t – know, about a time long past.
