Warning: it runs deep and it will make you enraged.

Welcome back to Death by Champagne, the podcast here to keep you up at night! We are back this week with part one of two! Both of our stories ended up being about an hour each so we decided to break this one up for you guys. This week Liv tells the unsolved disappearance of Mary Shotwell Little.

Welcome back to Death by Champagne, the podcast here to keep you up at night! We are back this week with two stories that will most likely enrage you. I cover murderer Adam Leroy Lane, dubbed The Highway Killer, and his month long crime spree that led to him being caught red handed. Mack covers the absolutely infuriating murder of Shele Danishefsky, the years following her death with no answers, and finally a conclusion I think we can all get on board with.

Patreon Teaser - Marble Shitter

August 30th, 2019

Welcome back to Death by Champagne, the podcast here to keep you up at night! We don’t technically have a new episode to release today. During this off week, and with all of the new patrons we’ve been getting, we wanted to give everyone a taste of what you get as your bonus Patreon content.  Mack tells the story of Chris Coleman, a father of two from Columbia, IL who seemed to be a hardworking father and husband, but he was leading a double life. Chris was in over his head, and had planned an escape that would eventually land him in prison for life. 

This episode contains foul language, Mack and Liv being a touch vulnerable, sensitive topics about family annihilators including child murder.  We also yell… kind of a lot... sooo sorryyyyyy. We’ll do our best to stay on track, but the bottles are popped!
