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.
Be warned, we re-recorded the lost episode from last week and had lots to unpack including 2 (yes two) stories of road rage with drastically different endings. The actual content doesn’t start until around min 22.
With that said, Susana kicks us off with a tragic story of how a family was almost completely wiped out by a person who allowed their ego in the driver’s seat. As if that wasn’t enough it wouldn’t be a Susana case if you didn’t leave absolutely gutted at the penalty or lack thereof.
Then Shaunelle lightens the mood with a repeat of her clueless cases from last week. Luckily Susana still thought they were pretty entertaining.
As usual, lots going on around here. We have a Boni update, proof of why you may not be able to trust Uber Eats and we saw Chris Rock’s stand-up (we don’t talk about that in this episode but we just had to let you know).
Shaunelle is up to bat first with a tale of a Malaysian witch named Mona Fandey. She was the originator of main character energy and wasn’t going to let something small like murder stop her from being the star she was born to be.
Then Susana follows with a story of a young woman who was In Love. A love to end all loves. She was in a bad situation and luckily she had a brave boyfriend who was prepared to do anything, and we mean anything, to save her.
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 cover heavy, somewhat political themes in this episode. You’ve been warned.
First up, Shaunelle tackles conspiracy theories and unravels the disturbing and incredibly sad case of the Coleman family. As all these stories go, from the outside looking in you’d think they had everything but the twist in their fairytale came when they let obsession and conspiracy ruin any chances of that picture perfect life.
Then Susana covers the case of Chrystul Kizer who faced similar challenges to the now infamously released sex trafficking victim Cyntoia Brown. We usually like to let lady justice have her say first but given the details we’re hoping Chrystul’s case gets viewed with some fresh eyes.
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 ?
Trigger warning: one of our stories today involves suicide. If you or someone you know struggles with thoughts of suicide please reach out to one of the many resources available near you. If you’re in the GTA please go to Distress Centres of Greater Toronto or https://www.dcogt.com/ for help.
It finally happened and Susana presented a case that Shaunelle knew better than she did 🤣. Her case turned into more of a conversation about the tragedy of a teen friendship gone horribly wrong. This is not your regular teen angst. Dawson’s Creek has NOTHING on the girls in this story.
Then Shaunelle’s case is a real doozy from beginning to the end. Grab yourself some tissues for the tears and a sound proof room for yelling because this will make you want to do both …. repeatedly.
