This week’s episode is a short one but impactful. Most notably Susana and Shaunelle get into an epic argument about fandom.
Susana (the Fast franchise stan) takes her interest in the truly unhinged and unbelievable (any Fast movie after the 2nd installment) and extended that to her true crime research by bringing us an unexpected case of abuse and grooming.
Then Shaunelle (the General Hospital advocate), brings some much needed jollies to a pretty disgusting episode.
Hellooooooooo !!!!! We know we’re delinquent but people got the flu, people had birthdays, people had deadlines, people have struggled ….and in case you’re wondering, people is Shaunelle.
Anyway, Shaunelle the rogue editor is up first this week with a wild story of a horrible man who refused to do his time for crimes he gaslit himself into believing he didn’t do.
Then Susana rounds off with a truly horrible story of siblings trying to survive growing up with ain’t sh*t adults. Say what you want about the murders they committed, we believe their names should be added to the victim list.
Check out our sources below: *note we had some issues with Susana’s links this week but when she gets back from her trip we will update.
Soooooo that break took longer than expected. What can we say? It was tax season, people had teeth removed and other people got horribly sick. It’s been a wild few weeks but we made it!
Susana is up first with a truly AMAZING story of the life and trials of a woman named Kenya who was let down by her family and the system and judged and discriminate against for her transgendered status. This one is one for the books.
Then Shaunelle covers the case of an unusual death or rather an unusual murder defense to say the least. This case raised the question of “how big is too big?!” and Susana for one, would like evidence to make her decision.
We’re back on our b.s with an unexpected theme of overkill this week.
First up, Shaunelle covers the case of what may be the worst mother in law in history…..no seriously. It’s one thing to comment on the casserole but it’s another to commit murder.
Susana follows that rollercoaster with the case of a friend. A best friend (if you believe the story) and the lengths this friend would go to secure the happiness of their bestie. With friends like these you should hide your enemies, for their safety of course.
We’re late again but considering our podcast motto of “structureless structure” it’s very on brand.
Shaunelle went first this week with a case of a boldfaced heir who, it seems, was ready to take down anybody standing between him and his inheritance. Buckle up, because this case has a bit of everything including premeditated murder and a high seas rescue.
Then Susana takes us to Amish country and gives us the tale of a man with 2 Barbs in his life. Unfortunately, one Barb was willing to commit murder to keep her Amish Stud 😒. No, we didn’t make it up.
We’ve been delinquent that’s true but we’ve definitely missed you – a poem by Criminally Clueless
In keeping with our tradition of being consistently inconsistent, this week we debate which episode we’re even on and if that doesn’t set the tone for the season we don’t know what will.
First up, Susana brings us the tragic case of a woman who settled. That’s right she could’ve done much better but she settled for the sake of those she loved and unfortunately this resulted in her being the victim of the ultimate act of revenge.
Then Shaunelle takes us all the way back to one of the worst aviation accidents in Canadian history. The convoluted tale behind the deaths of 23 passengers would have you questioning the lengths people would go to get what they want.
***Please enjoy the calming sounds of Susana fighting for her life against some sniffles throughout Shaunelle’s case. Unfortunately, it could not be edited out.
We’ve been through it!!!!!! But things are better and we are not only thriving but also happier.
Disclaimer: Susana hysterically laughs in the first 5 secs of this episode. Adjust your audio accordingly.
Shaunelle is up first with a story of desperation honestly and the lengths people will go to be successful as well as to settle debts.
Then Susana takes us through a case that is about a topic we NEVER planned to talk about (i.e. a mass shooting). With that said, her take on a deeply sensitive issue revealed that, in this case, the system was the biggest contributor to a horrible crime that could’ve been prevented.
Big Big big Disclaimer: If you, for one second, think that we have the musical chops to claim responsibility for any of Selena’s music then we not only strongly recommend that you see an ear specialist but we also recommend you run to the link in our sources to check out the real Selena ! We in no way take credit for her songs or content.
As per usual, we kick off the episode talking crap and being interrupted by the fine people of the protective services. We decided to push through and record anyway so consider the added audio us creating ambiance.
Shaunelle’s story is, at minimum, a cautionary tale against going out of your way to help others but in reality is a case about a woman who was sadistically stalked and kidnapped. The duration of her ordeal, the stalkers macabre source of entertainment and the insane way the crime scene was covered up is all unpacked.
Then Susana brings us the case of Selena. The Selena. Honestly, there isn’t more for us to say here. She was epic, her songs were amazing and the world instantly became sadder the moment she and her talent were snuffed out by an obsessed “fan”. With that said, Susana carries us through the life and death of a superstar and we hope we did her justice.
It’s our season finale! Can you believe it? We’re sorry to spring this on you but, to be fair, it took us by surprise as well.
In true Criminally Clueless Podcast fashion we are ending the season with a bang …..sort of. Shaunelle kicks the episode off by introducing Susana (and now you) to one of the most depraved terms she’s ever learned. For sensitivity sake the actual definition of the term has been cut from the episode but Susana’s response is enough to tell you NOT to look it up. If you do look it up, we’re sorry. Feel free to leave an angry message in the comments.
Susana’s last case of the season involves a disturbing find in a local New Mexico dumpster and the contents, of said dumpster, would cast serious doubt on whether or not the young mother involved was acting out of fear and not malice.
Then Shaunelle closes out the season with a case of two young lovers who met on the internet. Lies and betrayal tore them apart but it was revenge that would rip the mask off their romance and cost an innocent man his life.
Heavy, heavy, heavy episode this week! Your hosts have once again stumbled into a bit of a theme both covering crimes involving teens.
Susana captivates us first with the murder of Elizabeth Olten who was lured to her death by the least likely criminal mastermind. This case is truly eerie and we fully believe if the killer wasn’t caught many more would’ve lost their lives.
Then Shaunelle follows with the alarming case of Kendrick Johnson. His death was categorized as an accident but all of the evidence suggested otherwise. You listen for yourself and give us your take.
Check out our sources below and please be aware that some of the images associated with the Kendrick Johnson case are very graphic.
The documentary for the Kendrick Johnson case is called Finding Kendrick Johnson and is available on Prime in some regions.
