The Magnus Archives – Horror Fiction Podcast – Episode 9 – A Father’s Love


Case #0020312

Statement of Julia Montauk regarding the actions and motivations of her father the serial killer Robert Montauk.

Julia Montauk is the daughter of renowned serial killed Robert Montauk, who killed at least 40 people over 5 years.
Julia had always lived in York Road in Dartford. When she was 7, she awoke to noises downstairs; when she went to investigate she found the backdoor open and her mother’s silver pendant (with an abstract hand and closed eye design), on the kitchen table. Julia woke her father, who became very concerned when he saw the pendant. He turned on a tap and dark, dirty water flowed out which smelled salty and brackish. The light blew in the kitchen and her dad told her to go to bed as he left the house. The next morning he returned and told Julia her mother was gone.

Although he was a policeman, Robert didn’t log a missing person’s report (though this wasn’t discovered until much later). He started drinking and spending a lot of time in his shed. He was gone most nights and the shed in the back garden smelled strongly like tinned meat…
