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.

    • +Sherry Cooper r u the one from Parsons tn

    • +Unicorn Potato who is this please give real info and stop with the way things are going I know that you are mad at me about everything that not the way to do things we can talk about everything right way please

    • ObsoleteOddity m n

  • So sad that people lie to others about living more than one life when God tells us it is appointed once for man(kind) to die.

  • Wow. Sometimes it's not wise to piss off the people working for you. O.U C.H !

  • I think that the videos maker has done a wonderful job presenting the story's I've seen, appreciate the hard work you've put into these old tale's.. good job,‼️ thanks again, Wonka out.

  • Incredible and tragic story. It sounds as if this is the case that perhaps Jean Genet based his remarkable play 'The Maids' upon.

  • I would rather watch your informative, beautifully crafted horror videos then Trisha Paytas binge eat. Now that is absolutely gastly!

  • Feminists say only do evil.

  • Guy's getting 3,300 on Patreon + Adsense pretty good pay for these spooky videos

    • +Adventures in Mindanao Philippines Thanks for your feedback :) You're absolutely right. Well I do put a lot of effort into my videos, more than other uploaders (duration, quality, ambience and effects) I interact with my viewers (just like I'm doing now) developing an online relationship with my subscribers really pays off - plus I offer the minimum pledge amount ($1) to unlock all my Patreon videos - there is no fairer Patreon creator than me. Viewers realise it's very good value :) Sorry they make you feel weird, lol - there are other types of content I post here other than this particular genre; but my Patreon viewers are fans of vintage crime and horror.

    • +ObsoleteOddity Indeed, most of the content providers aren't getting anything like the amount of Patreon subscribers as you have. I enjoyed several of your videos myself, but I can't watch too many at a time or I start feeling kinda weird.

    • Hard work pays off.

  • For another example of folie a deux look at the video of the Swedish sisters who ran into interstate traffic repeatedly and one later murdered someone. Really incredibly disturbing.

  • Why does this happen to the innocent?? Poor babies!! May they find peace and rest with God above!

  • Are you the same guy who does "True Facts..." about animals series? Because those a hilarious. Your voice sounds the same, hence I asked. ...This video was great as well, even though it's a sad crazy story.

  • Oh that voice! Thank you and please keep up the cool videos.

  • Wow

  • Wow! How have I missed this one?! Damn!.....these girls were brutal!! Great story!! I think your French pronunciations were very good!! Bright blessings!

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

  • Just found your channel 👍🏻💯💯👻

  • This is the first channel I subscribed to! Great content and love how you engage with your viewers at the end of each videos. Thank you for making these!

    • Thank you for your kind feedback my friend - much appreciated :)

  • She was such a beautiful "old lady", Christine was.

  • MONSTERS OF NATURE... BOTH WERE THE RESULT OF TWO HORRIBLE PARENTS, AND NEVER TREATED FOR MENTAL ILLNESS WHEN YOUNGER....THIS THINGS happening with poor families... and even middle class and high and noble classes.


  • That was brutal very very brutal

  • Lit voice😀😁

  • Greatest story teller on ID-tv. These are my go to videos for bedtime. I have no idea why they get so many thumbs downs.

    • Thank you for your kind feedback my friend - much appreciated :)

  • your voice is a great storytelling voice, I love it you are brilliant!

    • Thank you for your kind feedback my friend - much appreciated :)

  • food & drinks are gone gone :(

  • Is he not from new Zealand.

  • Is this a real story? If so, EW. and that song at the end was down right creepy. Ew.

  • Oh my! I just discovered your channel and.. well, I'm still here several hours later, bingeing on your videos :) Much has been said (possibly even drooled) at your absolutely gorgeous narration, but I must also highly commend you for the excellent writing and overall production. I can just imagine the research and effort that you put in to give readers/viewers/listeners a virtual front-seat into these strange and fascinating characters, all packed into seemingly simple, less-than-a-half-hour presentation. So yeah... I'm going to shut up now and watch some more!

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

  • Did miss so something? These girls had a terrible life. What was gruesome? I do very much. I shared it with my mom yesterday. She also likes strange facts and stories. Thanks

  • Well done... so freaking creepy.

  • Lovely voice, i love the gruesome story of this puppin sister

  • If only my history teachers/professors were so experienced/knowledgeable I would have aced 100%s of exams as I used to when I was a kid. Sadly, when I went to college, it's all about the money and popularity.

  • Weren’t there two sisters from Sweden who ran across the motorway in the uk numerous times but survived despite being hit by lorries etc. I believe one of them eventually stabbed a man to death?

  • Hello Oddie and all! Wonderfully done, Oddie, thank you so very much!!! Such a sad thing for all around! Loves hugs and prayers for all a happy healthy life may we one day be rid of the darkness!!!

    • Thank you for your kind feedback my friend - much appreciated :)

  • Just found you. Enjoying your oddity. longer could not be a problem. Am sure there is more fascinating fact that can be added. More pics would be good but don't take it as criticism.

  • Now I know Where the Old CLESAY' Came from" IT'S HARD TO FIND GOOD HELP THESE DAY'S" They were both mental defiant, and the other sister shouldn't have been executed"

  • BEAUTIFUL...……..Wonderful job of keeping the art of story telling alive...…...xxxx

    • I live in Wakefield in the old Asylum (West Yorkshire Stanley Royd) so I love these kind stories.....I am your newest biggest fan lol

    • Thank you for your kind feedback my friend - much appreciated :)

  • These were sure some masculine faced women!!!

  • let's share the blame to the people who made them murderers.

  • The mother wasn't much of a mother., I recall listening to this one before, still a sad story.

  • Another fabulously narrated grizzly bit of obsolete oddity history. I'm having such a blast listening and filling in the blanks with my imagination, thank you so very much for your unique channel and style. xo

    • Thank you for your kind feedback my friend - much appreciated :)

  • Very well done and reading just to let you know I watch this right now as I'm going to sleep and it's definitely made me uneasy LOL
