Ep. 81- Dial "M" for Mujahid

Celine Dookhran was a 20 year old aspiring make up artist (seriously, her make up was amazing ya'll) and when she started dating an Arab Muslim, her family was not having it due to the fact that she was Indian Muslim. After telling her parents she wasn't going to break up with her boyfriend, they had a falling out so she decided to move in with her uncle, Mujahid Arshid, but when Mujahid couldn't take Celine being with her boyfriend any longer, he did the unthinkable.

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. Being treated the way she was, Catherine rebelled against her parents and would inevitably get her brother caught up in something that would tear two families apart.

At the end we finish this episode with a game of "Name that Disney Song" so hope you all enjoy that!

Ep. 43- Marcelo Lucero

On November 8, 2008, while 37 year old Marcelo Lucero & his friend were casually walking home, they were approached by 7 teenage boys who started tormenting them & beating them up. The attack ended when 17 year old, Jeff Conroy stabbed Marcelo and then took off with his friends. Even though the hospital was only 4 miles away, it took EMTs 40 minutes to get Marcelo there and shortly after he arrived, he passed away. So what made these 7 teens target these two men? Why did it take the EMTs so long to get to the hospital? We discuss that and so much more so be prepared to get mad with us. Also! We give Scott a questionaire at the end so you get to learn a little bit more about the new member of the team.
