This episode is the first of a three part update on Appalachian Mysteria Season 1 — Mared & Karen: The WVU Coed Murders. Without a doubt, these two episodes will be the most important updates since the season finished airing in 2018. In this episode, we’re reintroduced to Albert “Rod” Everly, a National Guardsman who was one of the first people on the scene when the bodies of Mared & Karen were found. As it turns out, Rod has been nursing a theory about the murders for more than 50 years. After acquiring the “Triangle” letters from Geoff and Sarah, he fleshes the theory out further, leading the podcast crew to unexpectedly exhume a body. A few weeks later, the Dominion Post begins a series of articles about new excavations by State Police. The photos accompanying the articles clearly depict Rod Everly, and we set out to explain to the general public exactly what has been happening with the case. The WVU Coed Murders: Who Killed Mared & Karen? — Geoff & Sarah’s book, now available at Amazon. Coming in at 400 pages, the book goes into much greater detail than the podcast could allow for, and is the first mention of the new suspects we’ll be talking about in our next update episode. “Renewed investigation begins on murdered coeds case” — The first Dominion Post article in a series about the new search for girls’ heads based on Rod Everly’s theory Richard Warren Hoover — A lecture given by Richard Warren Hoover (aka “Triangle”) on Halloween of 2010 at the Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp. He was 71 years old at the time. Thank you to our sponsor Killer Pysche Podcast!

with the following two episodes.


These will be the most important updates we've had on the case since the show's completion


in 2018.


Over the past few months, many people have contacted us about the new digging that's


going on near where the bodies of Merid Malaric and Karen Farrell were found.


We've been waiting to explain what's going on until we could put that story in a larger


context and we're finally ready to share.


In today's update episode, that entire narrative, which takes us from the first episode of


this show ever produced, to Sarah and Jeff's book tour, to yet another makeshift grave in


the woods.


All of that leading up to the next episode in which the secrets of a local family bring


into focus are best suspects yet.


From Chromatic Media, in the heart of Morgantown, West Virginia, this is Appalachian Mysteria.


To begin this episode, we take a momentary trip back to season one, episode two, in which


Sarah and I almost purely by chance managed to locate the man who led the National Guard


Detachment that found the headless bodies of Merid and Karen.


Kendall and I kind of took a gamble and we went to a creative arts center event.


They were putting on Saturday Night Fever, I think, in 2017.


We figured that it would be geared more toward people who would most likely be in their late
