Yooo that's kind of cool I was in a school play were I played a guy named Eliot Ness and he was a detective and he was always proclaiming he was untouchable, that's cool that he was a real person
Stephanie Holder (1 hour ago)
So this sounds strange but my 4mo will sit in his boppy or swing and watch this series with me as long as I want. He will pay attention and chill. That's how I went through every season so fast on prime lol. Now this is our go to to just play while we hangout or try to relax for a nap. River, my son, is soothed by Shane and Ryan's voices lol

The brain can stay active without the heart for 8 measures of time. I don't remember. Probably minutes

I don’t know how true this is but apparently two guillotine victims in France had their heads fall into the same basket and as a result one severed head bit the other.

It was Mary Queen of Scots. They also thought her body had reanimated and was moving after she was beheaded but it turned out just to be her dog hiding under her skirts.

Sweeney makes me think of Bioshock’s Dr. Steinman
im a weirdo (2 days ago)
For some reason parts of this case reminds me of the movie Seven. Mainly because of Elliot Ness and the fact that one of the victims were found after being dead for two months

I think it was Shane
Michael Richey (3 days ago)
He is 5'8 from foot to top of head. Your head is 8 or 9 inches long to neck. So he could hang his self no problem at a 5'7" hook

Ever heard of probable cause?

You guys should cover the Doodler's case
Alpha Matic (4 days ago)
So, you are telling that there was a really life person with the last name Sweeny. That's bad enough. Oh, and he probably was a brutal serial killer. Of course.

Actually the inventor of the polygraph hated the ‘lie detector’ use of his machine by police

1:14 in he clearly had some form of vendetta against sex workers/impoverished ppl whichever it may be, idk yet but i'm inclined to believe it's particularly against sex workers as he dismembered them at the torso. it may be a reach, but genitalia happens to be below the torso. update: yeah,,, uhh,,, nevermind about the vendetta against sex workers thing. he's just sadistic. maybe he had easier access to poor ppl or he truly had some distaste for them. idk. now referring to dolezal's hanging. yes, it is suspicious that the police were very near to getting exposed and the rope was an inch shorter than him. it is possible to hang yourself as such though. if he were to drop-hang, his neck would've snapped instead of asphyxiating him. however, it does seem far, far more likely that he was offed by the cops.
Angela Malvaez (4 days ago)
Honestly throughout the video I was building my own profile and Sweeney does fit it he probably abused his kids and have overkill on men bc it was most likely his father who abused him and shows a little remorse but still anger on the women Bc he blames his mom for the abuse. It makes sense that the victims are surrogates for his parents
Angela Malvaez (4 days ago)
What kind of chemicals though? Like if it were acid then it would show sexual sadism and also what part of the body was reddish leathery or whatever.?

Can you do Madeleine McCann?
Grace Hunter (4 days ago)
Its scary to think that only one person knew who it was which would be themselves. Wow if our police/investigators were like that now we would be fucked.
Julia Hall (4 days ago)
The monarch Ryan was talking about sounds like Mary Queen of Scots; the executioner ended up missing her neck, hitting her shoulders and top of her head before actually killing her. Execution by axe was notoriously dodgy/messy >~<

5:06 death
Daniel Hawkins (5 days ago)
But if he just killed anybody he is not a serial killer he is just a killer. Because serial killers do the same kind of poeple

I know of one thing that’s pretty cool. Is my great, great, great, grandfather helped make masks for the victims. Without him, they would have never been able to know the identities of a few of the victims.

I think Shane is the serial killer of all of these unsolved mysteries and has a time machine

I feel like we all relate to Shane in some sort of way.

I'm pretty sure you didn't have to say unidentified body was found, because you have said unidentified more time a person was killed
