Ep. 85- Transgender Murders of 2018 (June-Dec)

In this week's episode we tell you the stories of 11 transgender people that lost their lives in the latter part of 2018, making the total death count 26. Because these cases are so recent, there isn't a whole lot of information on most of them but hopefully the unsolved cases will be solved and justice will be served.

Brittney makes a "special announcement" about Justine & Scott at the end so stay tuned for that.

If you need someone to talk to, you can call TransLifeline, a hotline run by and for transgender people. Their US number is 877-565-8860 and in Canada it's 877-330-6366.

Ep. 74- Catherine & Andrew Suh

Although one of the two siblings committed to actual crime, this case is far from being that simple. After the death of their older brother, Andrew became the ideal son while his older sister, Catherine, was shunned and outcast simply because she couldn't carry on the family name.
