EP 76: The murder of Sheena Bora

August 9, 2022

It was like a bad movie. Indrani was married to Peter Mukerjea, one of the richest, most powerful men in India. 

Sheena Bora, her daughter, was dating Peter Mukerjea's son. Her step-brother. 

In a country where face and honour dictates, was this enough to kill her own daughter...?

EP 74: The Hijack Heroine - Neerja Bhanot

EP 74: The Hijack Heroine - Neerja Bhanot

July 26, 2022

It was 5th September 1986. Pan Am flight 73 was being hijacked by trigger-happy Abu Nidal terrorists. The four men were aggravated, impatient.

They were targeting American citizens. 

Neerja Bhanot was the most senior member left on the plane. With two other members of the crew, they hid American passports and did their best to protect the passengers. 

When all hell broke loose and the terrorists attacked, Neerja sacrificed her life...

EP 73: The Thai Cult that Ate Excrement Etc

EP 73: The Thai Cult that Ate Excrement Etc

July 19, 2022

It wasn't the 1960s, or the 1970s, it was 2022. Yet Jenjira's mother had joined a cult. A cult in the middle of the forest.

This cult worshipped a man. His followers ate his flaky skin, they drank his urine, they rubbed his phlem on their faces.

They believed that he could cure them... That he could deliver them to heaven...

No one was spared, Shoko Asahara went after all. 

They went after opponents of the cult, killing an anti-cult lawyer and his family. The cult would attack anyone who dared to leave, anyone who dared to question them. 

But that wasn't enough. 

Aum Shinrikyo would execute one of the deadliest terrorist attacks in Japan. They were going to release a deadly nerve agent into the Tokyo subway during rush hour, Monday morning.

EP 70: The Unsolved Murder of Noritta Samsudin (Malaysia)

EP 70: The Unsolved Murder of Noritta Samsudin (Malaysia)

June 14, 2022

There was a smell in the apartment - disgusting, noxious, body odour. Azora had never smelled such revolting body odour. It's speculated that this was the smell of Noritta Samsudin's killer.

Later that night, Noritta would be found dead.

A pillowcase covered her head.  Underneath, a bolster case wrapped around her face, tied behind her head. A towel was found stuffed in her mouth. Her hands and legs had been bound with electrical cords and bras.  

Could it have been one of Noritta's alleged boyfriends, one of which was a a married man with children. Or perhaps a stranger - an unknown killer running wild...?

EP 69: The Tokyo Twitter Killer

EP 69: The Tokyo Twitter Killer

June 7, 2022

In my opinion, Takahiro Shiraishi was a hoarder. He hoarded the skulls and bones belonging to nine of his victims in his extremely small, one-bedroom (a studio, really) apartment. 

He was a modern serial killer who stalked his prey online. He used different twitter accounts to find his victims. Then, he would lure them to his home where he would rape and kill them...

EP 68: The Unsolved Mystery of the Stoneman (India)

May 31, 2022

He was a monster that terrorised the streets of Bombay and Calcutta. 

From 1985 to 1989, he would creep around lonely streets and dark alleys, looking for his next victim. He would slither up, looking for a stone, a rock, a concrete slab. Then, he would drop on his victim's head, killing in the dead of the night.

This Indian serial killer was never found...

EP 67: Massage Mistress Manslaughter

May 24, 2022

陪读妈妈 or study mamas is a colloquial term used to describe women from China residing in Singapore while their children study in Singaporean schools. 陪读妈妈s as a trope does not have a particularly good reputation. In fact, 陪读妈妈s are often vilified as mistresses.  

Yu Hong Jin was a 陪读妈妈 and she was also a mistress to her older lover, Eu Lim Hok Lai. He invested in her massage parlour, paid her rent, and brought her shopping. 

But when the relationship ended, so did her life...
