    24. Artists Gone Awry: Mumbai Double Murder - India

    24. Artists Gone Awry: Mumbai Double Murder - India

    This week’s case is one that, in our opinion, does not get enough limelight. As the world focused its attention on the Sheena Bora murder case in 2015, another heartbreaking and jaw dropping double murder somehow came to the forefront but was forgotten relatively quickly. This is the story of an immensely talented woman whose life, on the outside, seemed perfect and one that most people down the same career path would envy. This is the story of an Indian artist who gained fame and international recognition for the work she was doing, until one day, her life changed for the worse. This is the story of Hema Upadhyay. | Intro by ghostfml

    23. Brothers in Blood: Familicide - Bangladesh/US

    23. Brothers in Blood: Familicide - Bangladesh/US

    Often we hear brothers in blood as a phrase that depicts loyalty. But what happens when that phrase is taken too literally. What happens when, not an outsider, but an insider turns on his or her own family? This is the story of an immigrant family from the quiet and quaint town of Allen, Texas. This is the story of the brothers in blood; the Towhid brothers. | Intro by ghostfml

As cold as that area is, this story is even colder. Begum Jan, Shireen Jan, Bazigha and Amna have lost their lives to a cold blooded murder. That is all their fate held after 30 days of torture in a small room, from hot coals to boiling water, their own families subjected the poor girls to this treatment. But even though they are dead, their fate now rests in the hands of an iron jawed man— Afzal Kohistani. This is the story of Afzal, who put his life on the line for justice. Welcome back to the Kohistan Video Murders, Part 2. | Intro by ghostfml

    19. Kohistan Video Murders (Pt.1) - Pakistan

    A video surfaced back in 2012, far in the northern hills of Pakistan, in a small district called Kohistan. This video, to an outsider, like me or you, is a very innocent clip— 4 women clapping and singing wedding songs, while 1 boy dances to their melodious tunes. Sounds like a happy moment caught on a 2 megapixel Nokia camera. Well, think again! This is the story of the video that took the lives of 8 people; this is the story of the Kohistan Video Murders | Intro by ghostfml
