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. Check out Oddie's Historical Feature playlist here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...

Little late here :D but as a french (new) viewer, I want to thank you for at least trying to read the french words ! It's not perfect, but what's important is giving it a try. I would suck at reading stuff in a language I don't know... Anyway, your video was perfect, very detailed, great narration, great documentation as well. To be honest, I've never heard of this story before so it was very interesting ! Thank you for such amazing quality.

I blame their alcoholic fagher and lo promiscuos mother, they both destroyed these girls for ever, God please removed the sisters from their purgatory...have mercy on them and their victims.
CAIntegrity (13 days ago)
It is men who ruin girls from a young age and make them become evil bitches. Men are the evil ones who do this to the women of the world. This is why there is widespread misogyny. Just hatred for women and their amazing power to heal the world. Men hate this because they're fucking useless bastards....all they do is cum at anything that moves. Men are horny evil assholes. All they want to do is touch their daughters. Fucking nasty. It sucks when people blame these girls when they were attacked at a young age by some horny fucking dick. Men can go kill themselves.

That's why it is so important to study psychological disorders (even pedophilia!) To prevent this! Btw...folie a deux is not being paranoid together ...it is a condition in which two closely associated people who are mentally ill share the same delusional beliefs.folie a deux does not happen in small groups.and the cause is in general a brain metabolic disorder like in schizophrenia or other psychotic outbreaks. I am working as a behavioral therapist.
Angie Parker (9 days ago)
pink girl who said you have to feel sorry? Maybe you didn't read the text right.But instead of just want them to kill ,it would be much more important to study them and figure out why they have that disgusting urge to abuse children. Makes sense, doesn't it? Btw, another interesting fact is that no blind person ever developed schizophrenia or pedophilia.google it 😊
pink girl (9 days ago)
Angie Parker so we should feel sorry for pedophiles ?

First of all I would like to say how much I admired your way of presentations and you got such a wonderful voice and talent. You must be a very nice gentleman so rare to find. By the way, just curious, I want to know if the sisters ever had have some sexual intimacy together? As was related to a part of the video, when the elder sister was trying to do some sexual advances towards lea.. 🐱☺
ObsoleteOddity (13 days ago)
Thanks very much for your kind feedback Reggie, very much appreciated :) It's possible the sisters were sexually intimate - the scene in prison would seem to suggest so; but I didn't elaborate on it, because I could find any solid evidence, just rumour.
Stella Ercolani (14 days ago)
Excellent story telling. What a tragic story hope they found peace. I love your storytelling.
Stella Ercolani (14 days ago)
The story is twisted. Life is what it is. God has a mission for each of us.
TheBelegur (14 days ago)
One of the ways sanity is established in the modern American court system is steps taken to conceal a crime. This shows consciousness of guilt and knowing right from wrong. These sisters didn't really try to cover up their crimes. I therefore think they where both insane and I have to wonder if their madness was environmental since the use of things like mercury and lead where used without proper protocols.

Had the flashlight been invented by the time of this story? (maybe the Gendarmes had illuminated the milky eyeball with his gas lantern?!) 👍 Hmmm, apparently It had! According to the wiki; The first flashlight was made in 1899. By 1922 several types were available; the tubular hand-held variety, a lantern style that could be set down for extended use, pocket-size lamps for close work, and large reflector searchlight-type lamps for lighting distant objects. In 1922 there were an estimated 10 million flashlight users in the United States alone, with annual sales of renewal batteries and flashlights at $20 million, comparable to sales of many line-operated electrical appliances.  Flashlights became very popular in China; by the end of the 1930s, 60 companies made flashlights, some selling for as little as one-third the cost of equivalent imported models.  Miniature lamps developed for flashlight and automotive uses became an important sector of the incandescent lamp manufacturing business.

Folie a deux... blame the fortune teller for making them believe that they were husband and wife in their past life. by the way, what happened to the other sister?

Also, I forgot to mention that the way you tell the stories, along with the pictures, is absolutely brilliant! You deserve many more subs, 1 mil at the very least in my opinion. I have no doubt you will get there. Quality over quantity my friend. ♥ ♥ ♥
ObsoleteOddity (15 days ago)
Bless you for that! It's a long battle, YouTube prefers quick low quality turnover, top 10 lists, etc. That's who they push and promote. But I'm determined to present quality, and I thank you for your appreciation of my content. Best regards Oddie

The fortune teller told sisters they were married in a previous life. Yeah that's not gross at all lmao.
Sarah Gullion (16 days ago)
You forgot to tell the part about them being sexual with each other and being caught doing so and that is part of the reasons for the killing.
ObsoleteOddity (16 days ago)
I couldn't find any evidence of that being true, just rumours that have cemented to become 'fact'.
Karen Carter (16 days ago)
Oddie, i live in key West florida and we are in the top 10 most haunted places in the US. You already have done one story about the doctor who kept his dead wife in his house in key west for years maintaining "relations" with her. Great story and on the ghost tour here. Well the keys have another interesting story you might, i hope, look into doing. There was an island here that at one time was the capital of florida or county seat back then not sure. But the homestaeders made the indians here so mad that they finally attacked the island and the only survivors were two brothers very young in age. Dont want to give away the whole story but thats the gest of it. Also another story of the 1931 hurricane that was the reason the railroad was stopped here, famous story. One small child survived and she lived into her 90s. We still wish her a happy bday on the radio every year and she told the story on the radio every year up until she died. She would always tear up when telling the story. Dont want to spoil this story either. Please look into this. I believe you could do a great job making these stories awesome as you always do.

I never get tired of this story, the papin sisters....... Its sooo sad and traffic. Goes to show you what happens to pairs in general, like elderly couples who remain in love till the end of there life's. Usually one dies the other shortly follows. Goes to show you how true and strong love stood the end of time... These stories require so much research and what's available is so little at that. I want to thank the narrator for his valuable time and dedication to bring to life these amazing true stories in time that are amazingly heart felt and appreciated. I subscribed a while back and look forward to more amazing stories .

What a gruesome but beautiful, classy presentation! What diction and timing. I can only offer feedback for the English parts, but the whole video is so skillfully done! It evokes a strange mix of horror and nostalgia in me which I find very puzzling. So I had to watch it again! Lovely to see moving images of the times, and deliciously creepy indeed! I can't imagine how much work goes into this. Thank you.
