Seven Deadly Sinners

Rachael O'Brien | Morbid Network | Wondery

Sinners are often people who believe they deserve every little thing they desire, and hurting others along the way…well that’s just road kill.  On a small scale it’s scary, but on the scale these people have done it it’s down right evil. Preachers, church, your faith are your most trusted source of comfort…but what happens when that world is shattered… Season 1 of Seven Deadly Sinners took on the world of Televangelists and cultish child sexual predator, Warren Jeffs.  Seasons 2 and 3 of Seven Deadly Sinners, we’re traveling to the depths of hell, expanding our realm and covering Preachers, Cult Leaders and Religious Organizations linked to horrific crimes...and some of these cases involve leaders who kidnap, rape and murder the ones who trust them the most.    What if, after leading you in prayer, he lures to the bedroom.  What it the same preacher who captures your heart, kidnaps your child. What if, the priest serving you communion used those same hands to dispose of a corpse. These Preachers committed heinous crimes - right under …your…. nose.. - with a bible next to their bed - and a cross around their neck.  Rachael O’Brien is the host of Seven Deadly Sinners, and she guides you on this hellish journey of deception all under the guise of Faith.

    204: Wrath - Anne Hamilton-Byrne & "The Family"

    The Family, also known as the Santiniketan Park Association or the Great White Brotherhood, was an Australian New Age group formed in the mid 1960s under the leadership of Anne Hamilton-Byrne. The group taught a hodgepodge of Western and Eastern religious doctrines, with Hamilton-Byrne claiming to have been a reincarnation of Jesus. Classic cult move, Anne....

    The group became the centre of controversy when its compound in Olinda, Victoria, was raided by police in August 1987 amid allegations of child abuse. All children were removed from the premises, and were discovered to have been adopted through illegal means.  Hamilton-Byrne and her husband were eventually arrested in 1993 and charged with conspiracy to defraud and to commit perjury in relation to the adoption scams, but those charges were eventually dropped and they fled on the lamb to the Catskill Mountains of New York.

    202: There IS honor among thieves with Matthew Hahn - Part 2

    Matthew Hahn risks life in prison in order to save a young girl - and due to Hahn's prior criminal record and the 3 strikes law in California turning over this memory card to land in the hands of the proper authorities effectively provides evidence not only of a sexual assault on a child but also of a burglary committed by Matthew Hahn.

    He knew he was sealing his fate inside of that envelope - yet he did it anyway. Seemingly a petty thief, his sense of duty to protect a young girl he had never met drove him to sacrifice his life of crime and drugs, jeopardize his freedom and prove his moral compass has a true north.

    196: Franklin Scandal - Alisha Owens

    This is the unbelievable followup to the Franklin Scandal.

    Yes if you’re a long time listener you know I did about a 1000 part series back in 2021 on the Franklin scandal. It may have been only 7 eps but you get the point, I was obsessed with it. I wanted to connect the dots, I wanted to solved the unsolved. 

    So when earlier this week, a victim of this scandal, perhaps the most well known one reached out to me and sent me the kindest message I may have ever received…..I cold called her immediately. Well immediately after sobbing bc it was a message that was so heart felt and also one I needed at the time as well.

    In addition, she has connected me to nick Bryant, the author and unbelievably dedicated and inspiriting journalist that worked on this Franklin scandal story for over a decade and who was also the person to publish the little black book in the Epstein case and who now, has a non profit with Alisha to get justice for child victims of trafficking. It is real, it’s incredibly important and they are doing the work so without further ado…I’d like to introduce my new friend Alisha Owens.

    195: Pride - WWII Sexpionage

    This is a story of women with grit, women who were brave and women who were sometimes, also seductive.

    This story was inspired by a new podcast out by Neil Strauss where he interviews an actual Russian female sex spy so I decided to look into this world further, the world of sexpionage and how brave and alluring female spies helped to change the course of the second world war.... And likely are still changing the course of politics today.

    In the stories I’ll tell you today, I start with the most famous of them all, the Kitty Salon, a brothel the Nazi’s took over in order to gain intelligence on other high ranking officials, enemies, frenemies, and beyond.
