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.
We’re late, we know but we’re here and we plan to stay. We’ve had a rough start to the year so getting into a routine has been hard but we want to deliver and this week we’re back with the bullshit.
Susana is up first with a case that’s still in the works. The gruesome death of a young man at the hands of a seemingly mentally distressed woman has left us with an overwhelming amount of questions, particularly about the capacity of a crockpot. His mother’s devastating find and the unusual answer given to the police has us shaking our heads in true disbelief.
Then Shaunelle has 2 cases of people who’ve been categorized as criminals but may actually be Robin Hoods who didn’t think through their choices.
