After Hours AM America's Most Haunted radio

On a cutting-edge edition of After Hours AM/The Criminal Code — True Crime every Wednesday 9-11pE with hosts Joel Sturgis, Eric Olsen, and secret weapon, forensic psychologist Dr. Clarissa Cole — we dig into the fascinating phenomenon of virtual detecting with Hunt A Killer’s C.W.S., who is an expert on serial killers and the public’s fascination with them. C.W.S. will join us at 10pE; at 9pE, Clarissa will lead us through the week’s freakiest True Crime news.

C.W.S.

C.W.S., is a true crime blogger for the murder mystery subscription service, Hunt A Killer; and host of their podcast, Behind True Crime, where she interviews professionals working in the genre. When she was a kid, she would spend every Friday night studying America’s Most Wanted, dreaming of becoming an FBI detective. She is frighteningly knowledgeable about a wide range of cases, and has her finger on the pulse of the overall phenomenon of the public’s interest in serial killers. What possessed her and those at Hunt A Killer to think that people would want a box with threatening/terrifying content sent to their home each month? What kind of people sign up? Why? This gets to the heart of two things: the mystique of serial killers, and the psychology behind a populace that’s fascinated with them.

Besides the True Crime madness, C.W.S. also writes country music and rambles around the United States building campfires and hoping for the best. She is a graduate of the University of Virginia’s MFA program in poetry and has written and self-published two chapbooks, a travel memoir, two folk/country albums, and was recently nominated for a Pushcart Prize. Her work has been published in Transom, Matter, Wu-Wei Fashion Mag, the James Franco Review, Miracle Monocle, and Ghost Town. She lives in Seattle.

Hunt A Killer is a monthly membership that spins dark tales for you to untangle. Enter the mind of a serial killer complete with clues, codes, and ciphers. Each month members receive items to aid their investigation: correspondence to interpret, objects to explore, and messages to analyze.

Founded in early 2016, Hunt A Killer started as a single immersive thriller experience for a small number of teams at Camp Ramblewood. They quickly expanded the live experience to a destination event, where over 10,000 people came together to share an exhilarating weekend together.

After their first event, the team quickly realized their big vision could not become a reality with a single event only once a year. To truly inspire people, and to continue their quest for challenging the entertainment industry’s status quo, Hunt A Killer launched a Membership program to deliver experiences into every home in America. Today, this Membership includes a completely new way of storytelling.

Hunt A Killer box closedStep 1: Join Now & Get Your First Box Tomorrow (If You Order Before 4pm EST)

You’ll receive a box that looks just like this. Go on, open it. It won’t bite… will it?

Step 2: Sort through all the clues – are there patterns? Little details that stand out?

You’ll receive “random” objects… letters from a stranger… What do they all mean? Can you uncover the truth?

Step 3: Make Your “Murder Board” – and Engage Our Online Community

Just like the detectives in the movies – you too can get your own cork board where you place your clues, and lay it all out for your detective’s eye to see…
