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.
Quality warning: for some reason the echo is back this week as well as a lot of background noise mostly brought to you by our butts on the recording chairs. Please forgive us.
First up, Shaunelle brings us the infamous case of Susan Monica and her pig farm of horrors. Acres of horrors in fact, as Susan had a habit of offering people a fresh start but that start often came with a catch : you wouldn’t escape the farm with your life.
Then Susana follows with not one but two stories of women who were likely betrayed by people around them. In one case we find out what happens when a “medical professional” plays roulette with a woman’s reproductive health and in the other we’re left wondering whether or not foul play was involved in the disappearance of a young woman on the streets of Mexico.
*Susana’s additional sources will be coming shortly
Today we bring you two cases which were critically affected by police interrogations. In one case, we’re not sure if the police used their bad cop routine to force a false confession and in the other, the bad cop routine may have cost someone their quality of life.
Susana is up first with the media heavy case of Melissa Lucio and the death of her daughter Mariah. We could all agree that Melissa wouldn’t be winning mother of the year any time soon but did that mean she killed her daughter ?
Then, Shaunelle covers the heartbreaking case of Ryan Waller who was interrogated by police for the murder of his girlfriend Heather Quan. What seemed like a straightforward case of domestic violence was anything but and in the end it was clear the police wasted crucial time getting to the bottom of things.
We were victims of a mini machine uprising this week when our computer seemed to have a life of its own and decided to reject our audio. Luckily we learned from the IT Crowd that most issues could be solved by turning devices on and off again so the audio was saved.
Susana starts us off with a case of a horrible nanny and a case of the worst revenge in response to a workplace grievance. The krims hired a recommended nanny and welcomed her into their home and into their lives. Unfortunately, this family would be nearly destroyed at the hands of a disgruntled worker who they came to care for as one of their own.
Then Shaunelle follows with a welcomed reprieve from Susana’s story with a little birthday collection of Clueless Criminals. We’re the perfect balance of serious and silly and you won’t want to miss it.
Heads up, we had a lot to ramble about so the cases start around the 21min mark.
We’re back and we’ve outdone ourselves. We usually bring you wild cases but this week we’re touching on a bunch of uncomfortable topics. In fact, it will probably take longer for Susana to recover from this than her surgery.
Shaunelle is up first this week and without spoiling the details we’ll say that this is a case about a man who carried out “illegal operations” and kept an unusual collection. Spoiler alert, he was not collecting stamps
Then Susana brings us a short story which has been told before regardless of location and time. It’s a story of a man who couldn’t take no for an answer and a woman who paid the ultimate price for his narcissism.
If that’s not enough to keep you entertained, we also discussed a brand new business venture and give our two cents on the whole Will Smith – Chris Rock fiasco because, why not ?
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.
If you’ve worked in an office or encountered the police then you’ll be interested in this week’s episode.
First up, Shaunelle has a case that will make you re-evaluate the way that you interact with your coworkers forever. Shirley Pierce was a true southern gem. Born in North Carolina and literally described as “sweet as a glass of tea” Shirley lived her life with grace and treated those around her with dignity and kindness. Unfortunately, one act of misplaced kindness was misinterpreted as an attempt to steal someone’s husband. Despite her denial Shirley was stalked and ultimately murdered for her act of supposedly blatant disrespect.
Then Susana tells us a tale of a woman who survived being brutalized only to find out her assailant was a monster who was allowed to get away with heinous acts for years leading up to her attack. She was lucky she lived to tell her story however, because one of his victims wasn’t so lucky.
If you asked us what didn’t interrupt us this week, we’d have a shorter explanation. You name it, we had it: door slams, elevator pings, ambulance sirens, crazy Pomeranian bedtime routines…all the B.S packed into one short episode.
*Due to an appointment and no other time to record, we do our very best to corral our opinions but Susana is pissssssed so you should expect a Venezuelan rant …or five.
Up first, with a truly angering recount of a case that screams (just SCREAMS) privilege!!! Susana delves into the disgusting case of Christopher Belter and the multiple rapes he perpetrated. We thought our disgust reached it’s peak learning about the remorseless way in which he carried out his crimes, but it went thermonuclear when we found out he had enablers every step of the way.
If you can believe it, it gets worse because that ole bitch, lady justice, swept in only to disappoint, as usual. Who’s surprised?!…Not us!
Then, on a slightly lighter note Shaunelle’s case is all about romance…online romance, that is. When 19 year old Marissa Williams’ relationship with her aunt turned sour she sought out the one person she thought she could trust, her new online love. Her plans for retribution were unexpectedly foiled and Marissa was caught by the long arm of the law. Who sold her out? and who the hell put a hit out on the family dog?!
All will be unpacked in this crazy tale of family drama, betrayal and attempted dogicide.
Happy to report we got our audio mixing sorted…please proceed to the wildness within.
We’re back with the B.S this week ! First of all, our case titles may be misleading. So to manage your expectations we’re going to go right ahead and say that there’s absolutely no threesome / sex happening on a baseball field in this episode. We’re sorry if that’s disappointing.
Shaunelle is up first with a story of misadventure in dating. When Heidi Carter decided to participate in a ménage à trois she may have bitten off more than she could chew….especially since she wasn’t exactly single at the time. The story disintegrates from there and we enter a confusing tale of drama, a possible set-up, rape , murder and the recurring theme of why oh why can’t people have honest sex?!
Then Susana does us all proud as she delves into case made famous by the Netflix documentary, Long Shot. Whatever you thought you knew, throw it out the window. When Juan Catalan was hauled to jail for a murder he repeatedly pleaded his innocence however, police wouldn’t believe him. After all, he was identified by several witnesses as the murderer. It seemed like Juan was headed straight to prison but fate had a home run in the cards.

***Also, enjoy the relaxing thuds in the background which are actually Susana’s nervous knees going under the table.
