The Gruesome Case of the Papin Sisters

Published on 16 May 2017


Oddie's Historical Feature - Episode 17

This Historical Features details the the story of the Papin Sisters – their upbringing – the murders - and their trial & final years.
Christine & Léa Papin grew up in Le Mans, France. After a tragic upbringing, things appeared to be going in the right direction for them; they had a good job as head servant/cook & chambermaid in a the house of a wealthy middle class family. By all accounts, they were fed & treated well & had a comfortable heated room on the third floor of the large house of Monsieur Lancelin & his family.
Then one day, the girls snapped...leaving a horific trail in their wake.
No one could quite believe that these two kind & demure young women, could be capable of such shocking & grisly murders.

Many thanks to one of my sweet viewer's 'Melissa Sutton' for suggesting I research this case.

I watched that the other night.

It could be a case of that Folie a deux thingey.

Any relation?

I remember him well back in the day. He went missing as well, I seem to recall. (from the football world, not bumped off)

Unreorganised will know the name. I think?

There was a mention of this recently with the Swedish twins on the motorway.

That`s it - a shared psychosis. We know other people like that.

Going off topic - or maybe not as it relates to a form of mass hysteria - has anyone here witnessed "talking in tongues" which some churches practice?

This clip is particularly awful as it's a child who's been brainwashed.

That's awful, Freedom.

I could only watch 20 seconds of that.

Is that a ghost gibbering and crying through the boy or something then?

As far as I understand, he's "possessed" by the Holy Spirit.

One of the most disturbing programmes I've seen in recent years was about child preachers. Here's a short clip from it.
