There’s a lot going on in today’s episode …more than usual. If the beginning is any indicator then you know you’re in for a rough ride. Not only are we dropping an episode with, not 1 but 2, cases of opportunistic pervs, but we are also dealing with Susana shaking ice like a pair of maracas and alarms going off.
First up, Shaunelle covers a case she cleverly (according to her) entitled “An Officer and A Pervert” (extra points if you got the movie reference). When women were falling victim to home invasions seemingly plucked from the mind of the infamous Jerry Brudos himself, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) tried to catch him before he escalated. Unfortunately, it was too late and what started as home invasions soon lead to the murder of 2 young women. The OPP needed to catch the culprit before he struck again. They just didn’t realize the fully decorated culprit was hiding in plain sight.
Then Susana takes us on a walk down memory lane, with the infamous Mary Kay Letourneau case in which “love” (and by love we mean abuse) contributed to the derailment of a young man’s life. We’ve amended that ole rhyme just for this so it reads: First comes abuse, then comes prison ….because that’s exactly what she got (and deserved).
Ultimately, this is an episode of two entitled people from relatively privileged backgrounds abusing their power and ruining lives …buckle up
We got our hands on some sweet sweet mics and they’ve made all the difference in our audio situation. We just need to remember to actually speak into the mic as well as refrain from hitting the table…whoops !
It’s Susana’s birthday episode this week (check us out on Instagram @criminallyclueless for the cute set-up) and our birthday girl did not come to play games. She takes us on a telenovela-esq journey so convoluted Jane the Virgin couldn’t write it. Our heroine is the kick-ass Marisela Escobedo. Marisela’s daughter Rubi was dead and despite Marisela putting everything on the line to prepare an ironclad case, she couldn’t get her daughter’s murderer to pay. It’s a seriously twisted story of murder, corruption and a mother refusing to give up on justice for her daughter.
Yes, you are right, Susana does have a case type but it’s her birthday and she can make us cry if she wants to.
Next up, and hoping to make good on a birthday promise, Shaunelle has 3 (yes, three) clueless criminal cases, each one more clueless than the last. If you make it to the end of the podcast you can enjoy Susana laugh-crying herself through the last 5-10 minutes of the episode. You can also help us answer the age old question of Pussy or Prison ? (weigh in on our latest poll).
