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.

    • Read me a bedtime story

    • kill & chill

    • ObsoleteOdd

    • +Rhena Chase Historical Feature so that means nonfiction.

    • Is this fiction or nonfiction?

  • God what a terrible story. The mother and the father should have been locked up. They destroyed those girls.

  • I absolutely love these historical stories thank you so very much

  • Thank you for your ever wonderful storytelling!

  • Madam Lancelin 'a mothering mistress' flew into a rage and two sisters who were 'loving to each other' and hard working...sudden kill frenzy. LSD in mold in rye bread (lysergic acid) mold in rye...caused many kill frenzy including the 'fits' of young women Salam witch trials caused once gentle girls to lie and frenzy to kill 20 innocents accused as witches

  • An incredible story told by an incredible storyteller. !!!!!

  • I was confused by the choice of so many photos from the time the oldest sister was born, or even before (plat-forme mobile from the 1900 Exposition). If you want 1920s pictures of maids (not women in 1900 gowns), look for etiquette and household management books. Or look for stills out of early talkies. Pretty good French and smooth narration.

    • Thanks for your feedback. I don't have time to try and locate 'etiquette and household management books'. I'm not a Hollywood producer. I just use images to suggest an era, when the factual ones cannot be found.

  • I just came across this and listened to your story of these two women, its incredible and yes creepy but it held my attention. Great narration too.

    • Thanks for your very kind feedback Jackie - very much appreciated :)

  • Quite disturbing.

  • I like the accent of the narrator-very well-spoken!

  • What ever happened to the eldest sister Emilia? Did she remain a Nun? Did she hear of the murders or sentencing of her sisters?

  • From deadly women


  • I just recently found your channel and enjoy it very much. Thank you for sharing, I just watched Hansel and Gretel! Very nice. I have to admit my favorite ones are the the older crime! Please continue, continue!

    • Thank you so much for your kind feedback Linda - very much appreciated :)

  • Nobody can imagine the consequences of children brought up with no love at all. I saw it almost everyday when I was teaching in a prison. For a child, love is as necessary as oxygen.

  • God the conclusion song is as scary as death!!!😫😫😫😭😭

  • Sounds and looks like the papin sisters were shown some butchery, singly if a corpse. Maybe cannabalism practiced during wartimes in Europe.

  • Just goes to show the nature that white people in history and today are willing to go smh..

  • Awesome channel!!! I thought you did well speaking French! 😊

    • Thank you so much for your kind feedback Tina - very much appreciated :)

  • I watched the movie of this, sister my sister, when I was overseas and fell in love. Great video and research😊😊😊

  • whats the title of the song where the scene is the girl is praying? 1:20?

  • I wonder if the Papin sisters would be willing to share the recipe? I too have a craving for "Rabbit".

  • You did an awesome job reading that ! That story was creepy

  • Who was that singing? She sounded very pleasing.

  • What’s the matter with these men??? And these sadistic women.

  • God Bless those sisters! I love them both 😘

  • I hope you can make a narration about sylvia marie likens' story 😊

  • Oddie.. I have made your videos my bedtime ghost stories. I really love your channel. 😌

  • How does a child seduce an adult? WTF.

  • To me you're fabulous and all that you do. You try very hard and doing excellent job at finding older photos and any photos pertaining to your story. Your videos are so unique and I thoroughly enjoy it it's like storytime. Anyway take care, Carrie

  • Are these actual photos of the people involved or just stock?

  • You did a great job about how the human minds, connect and add twins are inseparable. Great and awesome job.

  • Is this a true story?

  • Also shows how genetics role in behavior outweighs environmental upbringing.

  • Very good writing. Interesting story.

  • Hmmm 10 years old I don't think I knew what "sex" was....smh anything not to admit blame or the issues!

  • Simon de Beauvoir supported this heinous crime being a feminst shocking to know dt. I thought her to be rational

  • I loved your speaking & story!

  • I Love Your Voice! Thank You.

  • Excellent video. Quite well presented. May I nitpic a teeny bit. 😉 Genevieve IS pronounced Jen-a-veeve in English but in France it's pronounced Jhaun-a-vee-ev. 🐱😸

  • I had heard of this story from female killers channel first and i think your story made it clearer for me and not to mention this very much detailed, too. :)

  • I absolutely love the spelling of the young girl's name but mine is spelled Amelia but pronounced the same

  • Love your content

  • So they were Lesbians...yuck.

  • Thanks for the video. I am learning English now and this help me a lot

  • I love how you to tell the stories. It makes me want to hear the rest so easily and with quite curiosity. ♥️

  • Your french and speaking voice is beautiful! You could easily be in radio!

  • You should have kept the original back track as what you left was wonderful enhanced the story and i would love to have heard the original. Plus you have a suitably mellifluous voice

    • This is the original video Jane - no changes here. I think you mean my video about Blanche Monnier.

  • So the mum's an ashole. OK! But where is the fucking DAD?!?!? "I have a penis - I don't have to give a flying shit!"

  • Very scary. Love the voice.

  • Thank you I enjoyed that gruesome story also interesting facts at the end. Jacquie great voice also.

  • May Jean Paul Sartre and Simone De Beauvoir rot in Hell for eternity. Fucking communist lunatics.

  • I remember Candace Long, FBI profiler, did a story on these two, smh. It included a tidbit about the sisters also having an intimate relationship and the whole thing just blew my mind, for some reason this always reminds me of Lindsey Borden.

  • I don't believe this ever happened. It seems unbelievable.

  • I don't know what shocked me more. The Papin sisters' grisly crimes. Or the fact that the guillotine was still around & last used in 1977! It wasn't actually abolished until 1981. Good God, it was still used in the twentieth century!

  • Sent to a convent after being raped? That is throwing salt in the wound. I would think that the girl would rather stay home and take her chances with her father!

  • 😮 have you thought about doing one on the Donner Party? They are my relatives

  • I just found you channel. I subbed immediately..Thank you.

  • what the hell is a chambermaid?

    • Someone who comes to empty out the chamberpots (in the old days) and generally cleans bedrooms and toilets.

  • The moral of this story is never disrespect people especially if you happen to be extremely rich. ;-)

  • RIP Papin sisters

  • Well then. That escalated quickly.

  • The comments on the voice of the narrator are accurate, I usually can’t listen to narration at all unless it’s Attenborough on the animal specials, but this reader could read me anything. You should read “Remembrance of Things Past” by Proust on audio books, and I will buy it. Please. All the audios of it are un-listenable. You are missing your calling.

    • Thank you so much for your kind feedback - very much appreciated :)

  • I enjoyed the story. Didn't think I would. Usually not into scary stories... thanks

  • Discovered you today. Your voice and your manner of speaking is quite soothing. I like your style in presenting the stories.

  • To how a mother can blame a daughter for getting raped by her father I will NEVER understand,

  • :p

  • Reminds me of the Menendez brothers.
