A Brief Case
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...

EP 66: The Murder of Canny Ong (Malaysia)

May 17, 2022

It was one of Malaysia's most horrific murders...

On 13th June 2003, Canny Ong headed down to the basement carpark of a popular shopping center in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Her mom and sister waited at a nearby autopay machine. 

This was the last time her family would see her alive...

Canny's charred body was found in a construction site. She had been pushed into a hole with two cement filled tyres over her. Her legs dangled out. She had been strangled with a cloth around her neck, and stabbed viciously.

Who could have done this? Not a soft-spoken, gentle family man...?

May 3, 2022

Chisako Kakehi had no shortage of male admirers.

Even in her fifties, men wrote her love letters. She was discerning, her lovers had to meet three requirements - they had to own their home, they couldn't have children, and ideally, they had to be rich. 

But why were the men around her - boyfriends, husbands, paramours - why were they dropping like flies...?

EP 64: Beijing’s Passion Club Murder - The Unsolved Death of Liang Hailing

April 12, 2022

 At just 26 years old, Liang Hailing was Beijing's Number One Courtesan. 

She served only the most elite - rich businessmen, high-ranking government officials. Fancy a chat? It cost 5000 RMB, that's about 1000SGD. It's rumoured that a Taiwanese businessman spent 4 million RMB on Hailing. 

She was gorgeous, stunning - she had charm, beauty, and a captivating personality. She was on top of it all. So why was she killed? Found beaten, strangled in her own home.

Was it a robbery?

How about a jealous lover?

Or perhaps something else all together...?
