Two Mid-Michigan girls with cold, dead hearts giving you the cold hard facts about true crime, legends, and lore.


Jenn Carpenter is a Lansing native with a love for true crime, tacos, and her house full of boys and dogs. In 2016, she founded Demented Mitten Tours, Mid-Michigan’s premier paranormal/true crime touring company. She is the author of Haunted Lansing, which was released by Arcadia Publishing in 2018. Her obsession with the macabre often keeps her up at night, so when she’s not creeping people out with one of her weird stories, you’ll often find her napping (or Netflixing- which usually just leads back to napping.)

Dani Fairman was born and raised in Lansing, and is fascinated by local history and lore. A wife, mother, and business professional by day, her obsession with the dark and disturbing runs deep. With Diet Coke coursing through her veins, she often finds herself falling down true crime rabbit holes and ending up miles away from where her research began. She enjoys a good ghost story, even though ghosts scare the bejesus out of her. She loves true crime, but hates scary movies. Though you might expect Halloween to be her favorite holiday, it's actually Christmas, which she pre-games for year round.
