Sarah Stern: “The Mysterious Box” | MURDERISH Ep. 099

Daydreaming about coming into a sudden windfall is probably something we’ve all done. We let our minds wander for a brief moment, thinking of all the things we’d accomplish if it happened, and how happy we would be having received such a rare treat. Who would you share the money with if it happened to you? Your family, a stranger in need …your best friend? It’s a happy thought, but sometimes the reality can be much darker because money also motivates some people to do terrible things. In this case, curiosity led to the opening of a mysterious box. From that point on, the clock was ticking …on someone’s life. Check us out: Visit for more info about the show and Creator/Host, Jami.
