AREA 52 077: “Valencrimes Day”

Valentine’s Day is the holiday of love! A time to spoil and focus on your significant other or celebrate and delight in your singleness! While most people associate it with hearts and roses and chocolates and romance, that’s not what we do here.

This week, we wanted to explore the dark side of this annual love fest, from it’s bloody, pagan origins and gross modern day commercialization, to the many horrible murders, massacres and crimes of passion that have happened on February 14th. So pull the one you love close and join us as we deliver some blood soaked valentines to a mysterious pitchforked corpse, a legendary Chicago mob hit, an alleged accidental Olympic shooting and much more. We aren’t just breaking hearts, we’re slashing them! Enjoy!
