Delve into the dark side

Live via Zoom


The Gympie Bone Museum and Rest in Pieces has joined forces to bring you an evening with the Serial Killer Whisperer, Amanda Howard. 

Amanda is a true crime author, fiction writer and violent crimes media consultant who has written 26 books. She has also interviewed some of the world's most heinous serial killers over two decades and has collected a vast pool of information on various types of killers, their motives and rituals.

If all that wasn't enough, she is also the host of Monsters Who Murder podcast and the owner and curator of the travelling death and crime museum, Memento Mori.

Over 4 nights she will delve into the dark side and allow you to ask questions throughout the session.

The topic on evening 1 will be -  Missing Children. 

The session will cover abductions, kidnappings and murders of children from around the world. Amanda Howard will analyse interviews with families, perpetrators and police, as well as pieces from the Death Museum related to some of the world’s most famous cases.

13 January 2022Dying to Know - Missing Children
Tonight I listened to the first of 4 sessions I have signed up for..this one was Amanda Howard talking about missing children. This was excellent! The technology was flawless, the host was great, asking questions posed by the audience and keeping the discussion flowing; and Amanda was brilliant, such a wealth of knowledge about current cases and cases from years ago. Great job…keep doing more…
