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...?

EP 60: The Unsolved Murder of 13-year-old Arushi Talwar (India)

March 1, 2022

Six guards patrol the complex. To get into the apartment, there's three locked doors - a gate, a metal grill and a wooden door. Once you're in, there's a lock on the bedroom door. 

It was May 2008. Who had made it into the apartment, and into 13-year-old Aarushi Talwar's bedroom? Who had bludgeoned her, then slit her throat? Silently, while her parents slept in the next bedroom?

Fingers pointed at Hemraj Banjade, until another body was found...

It's believed that he had five children with five different mothers. Some reports say that he had almost a hundred different girlfriends. 

But when it came to marriage, was he looking a little closer to home? And what could have triggered such a brutal murder and dismembering in the bougie West Vancouver neighbourhood?

EP 58: Daddy’s secret; his dead wife’s butchered body - Michael Cully

EP 58: Daddy’s secret; his dead wife’s butchered body - Michael Cully

February 15, 2022

It was April 1976. Michael Cully was on his deathbed, he was suffering from heart failure. His son, Charles, had rushed from Singapore to Melbourne to see his father one last time. 

What was the dying man's last wish?

He wanted Charles to get rid of the body. The dead body of his wife, Charles' mother. He had killed her in a suite in the Hilton hotel. Best if he could dump it in the ocean, if not he could abandon it in a warehouse somewhere...

(personal note: aiyo, don't kill your spouse; just get divorced!!)

It was 1st July 2018. The Chundawat family, also known as the Bhatia family by neighbours, lived in the Burrari district in Delhi, India. On that day, all eleven members of the family were found dead.

Ten were hanging in the courtyard - their feet almost grazing the floor. Eyes covered, hands bound. One in the bedroom - the grandmother, strangled to death.

Who could have done this? 

What could have caused this?
