    72. The Sheena Bora Murder Case - India

    72. The Sheena Bora Murder Case - India

    A commonality across all families is struggle, hard times, broken relationships, and dirty laundry we keep to ourselves. Regardless, we love our families. Whether it’s those horrible teenage years where you can’t stop arguing with your parents or whether you were blessed with a sibling completely your opposite or whether your mother hates her mother-in-law, these problems are common and universal across time and culture. But some families have secrets deeper and darker than these. Some families have secrets that leave lives destroyed. Families that give credence to the saying, “with a family like this, who needs enemies?”. This is the story of one such family- the Bora family. This is the Sheena Bora murder case.

    71. The Unsolved Case of Nadia Malik (Pt.2) - USA

    22 year old Nadia Malik is nowhere to be found. All we know is that her partner Bhupinder Singh picked her up in a Black Nissan Altima around February 6th. She got in probably thinking it’s a car ride that will last a few minutes. But minutes turned into hours, hours turned into days, and the days turned into a week. But Nadia was nowhere to be seen. An unsuspecting sedan turned into a car ride that would never end. Welcome back to part 2 of the unsolved case of Nadia Malik.

    69. The Unsolved Case of Nadia Malik - USA

    69. The Unsolved Case of Nadia Malik - USA

    A murder involves a murderer, the murdered, a murder weapon and more often than not, a motive. This template is true for most cases covered on our podcast, and on any true crime podcast for that matter. But where there is a rule, there is an exception. The case we have for you today is one such exception. This case has a murder, but no murder weapon, no motive, and no murderer. This is the story of a 22 year old girl that shook the city of Philadelphia, this is the story of Nadia Malik.

    67. The Murder of Jessica Lal - India

    67. The Murder of Jessica Lal - India

    When in 1999, the body of a beautiful 34 year old model and celebrity bartender was found lying on the floor of the fancy Tamarind Court restaurant in Mehrauli in New Delhi, with a clear bullet wound to her head, her family and the cops thought this was an open and shut case. This was a party of 300 some people, after all. Someone has to have seen someone, someone will come forward. There should’ve been no dearth of evidence in the case at all. And 7 years after the crime, the verdict was out. The Times of India printed the verdict on the front page of their February 22’ 2006 paper. “No one killed Jessica”. This is the story of that night in 1999 when Jessica Lal was killed, yet somehow nobody killed her. This is the story of Jessica Lal.

Entertaining but I wish they get facts correct

It’s a good podcast aside from factual errors the podcasters make. For eg. Sheena bora is not half sister of Indrani Mukerjea. Otherwise its a fun listen.
