    The Korean “Junko Furuta” Case - 26 Days Of Torture, SA, Then Sealed In Concrete

    The Korean “Junko Furuta” Case - 26 Days Of Torture, SA, Then Sealed In Concrete

    Orchards are not fun at 3am. The rustling of the leaves feels no longer feels like a nice sunny, breezy day, it sounds like someone is hiding behind a tree somewhere watching you. Standing in the middle of an orchard is a group of high schoolers and young 20 something year olds just huddled in a circle. 
    “What did kim say about the—? “HURRY just start pouring it!” 
    They kick their shovels aside, start pouring the concrete into the hole, and watch as it covers first the hand, then the torso, and now the face. 

    The face of the 15-year-old girl that they held captive for a month and tortured. 

    When they’re done, they head back to their cars with their shovels… And honestly? They think they did it; that they’re getting away with it. But don’t they know? History always repeats itself. 

    A very, very similar case took place 26 years ago in Japan: The case of Junko Furuta. 

    This episode is about a case that everyone in South Korea has been calling: The Korean Junko Furuta case.

    His Wife Vanished On A Moving Train - Everybody On Train Is A Suspect

    His Wife Vanished On A Moving Train - Everybody On Train Is A Suspect

    “I’m going to use the restroom real quick.”
    Jia’s husband opens his eyes and looks at his phone. It’s 1AM. The two of them are on an overnight train heading home. He blinks before ripping his blanket off to escort his wife - 
    “No, it’s okay. I have my phone with me. Just stay here. I’ll be back quick.”
    She leaves for the restroom - careful to not wake up any of the other passengers in the sleeper carriage. She climbs down the bunk bed steps and balances through the aisle to the restroom. 
    BAM. Jia’s husband eye’s fly open and he checks the time. 1:30AM. It’s been thirty minutes and his wife is not back from the restroom. Strange… 
    He searches the entire carriage before alerting the train conductor… 
    “Please you have to help my wife is missing!”
    The train conductor smiles at him.
    “Don’t be ridiculous. Nobody goes missing on a moving train.”

    Teen Couple Killing Everyone That Won’t Let Them Be Together, Then Host Party In The Murder House

    Teen Couple Killing Everyone That Won’t Let Them Be Together, Then Host Party In The Murder House

    The to do list for the party mainly consists of purchasing groceries, cleaning the upstairs rooms, and airing out the pungent smell in the bathrooms. 
    17 year old Cassandra grabs the bottle of bleach and pours it out onto the bathroom floors. There. That should do. 
    Her boyfriend, Johnny, helps her glue the bathroom door shut. Sealing it with a caulk gun. There. Now nobody can get in and nobody can get out. 
    But more importantly - the smell won’t get downstairs and ruin the vibes. 
    “It’s a sewage issue.” That’s what they tell the party guests. 
    19 year old Johnny had used the restroom and because the sewer lines were blocked up he couldn’t flush. Excuse the smell. 
    They did not tell them that they were getting high right under 2 dead bodies that were decomposing upstairs.

    Korean “Evil” Twin Tried To Kill “Perfect” Sister To Take Over Her Identity 

    Korean “Evil” Twin Tried To Kill “Perfect” Sister To Take Over Her Identity 

    The police office ran through the apartment complex - only stopping to investigate a suspicious looking Korean girl in a blue mustang. 
    “What unit?”
    “656” she said. 
    The exact unit he was called to for a potential home invasion and hostage situation. 
    “What’s your name?”
    “My name is Sunny Han.”
    He tried to memorize her face before running to the unit. They found in the apartment 2 college girls had been tied up by gunmen. They were trying to kill the girls. 
    As the officer is interviewing the two female victims he can’t help but shake the feeling of deja vu. 
    “Wait, I’m sorry what did you say your name was?”
    “Sunny. Sunny Han.”
    But that’s not possible. How can someone be two places at once?

    Genius Adopted Girl From China Found Dead - STRANGE Photos Found In Rich Parent’s Phone

    Genius Adopted Girl From China Found Dead - STRANGE Photos Found In Rich Parent’s Phone

    It was supposed to be a cute little road trip. 
    12-year-old Isabella, her best friend Asunta, and Isabella’s mom were in the car heading towards the beach. 
    Isabella’s mom tried to keep the spirits high for the girls - 
    “Okay, why don’t we all share a story! Get our creative juices flowing!”
    12-year-old Asunta offers to start. Her voice suddenly shaky - 
    “There once was a girl who laid in her bed to sleep. She awoke to a man in a mask dragging her body off her bed, covering her mouth, and then choking her with his big strong hands. The girl could not breathe. She could not scream. She was going to die.”
    Isabella’s mom pulls the car over to the side of the road because Asunta is bawling her eyes out.
    “Sweetie, are you alright?”
    Asunta was not alright. This was a true story, and it happened to Asunta - a man broke into their home and tried to kill her. 
    But when Isabella’s mom talks to Asunta’s parents about it - she’s even more confused. Why are they not freaked out? Why didn’t they report this to the police? Who is this masked man, and is he still out there?
    Why would he want to kill Asunta?
    And did the man come back? Because 2 months later, Asunta would be murdered. 
    Soon - everyone in Asunta’s life would become a prime suspect. Including her wealthy adoptive parents.

    NYC Top “Escort” Service Catering To Rich Married Men Turned Out To Be College S*x Cult

    NYC Top “Escort” Service Catering To Rich Married Men Turned Out To Be College S*x Cult

    The Department of Justice makes a very public statement—it feels more like a threat. 
    “Please do not reproduce, share, or use this exhibit in any way. If you have downloaded this file, please delete it off your device.” 
    The DOJ had accidentally leaked a file they previously moved to seal from the public. Not one thing, nor one name was redacted. 
    The file in question - is the client list to one of the most high profile sex workers in all of Manhattan. 
    Her revenue in just a few years was in the millions of dollars - her hourly rate was $1500. 
    It’s safe to assume that this leaked, ’sealed’ file includes the names of NYC’s upper elite. High peorfile businessmen, millionaire-married couples, artists, restaurant tycoons, and lots and lots of rich married men. 
     
    Some of the names were recognized to be high level executives at Apple, other major retailers, one wealthy hedge fund manager, one international diamond dealer, and a former NY Supreme Court Judge. 
    But they hadn’t just been listed as clients for sex work. 
    They had all been named as alleged clients of a sex trafficking business run by a college cult. 
     
    10 years prior, a man had walked onto an elite private school campus to visit his daughter, a sophomore at the university. The man, her father, ends up staying on campus, living in his daughter’s dorm, and quickly begins the process of grooming and brainwashing all of his daughter’s friends. 
     
    The result was a decade long cult. Some of the friends turned cult members were ‘promoted’ to chauffeur or solder. Others into forced labor. His daughter’s friends would become his wives.’ And that left one, forced to turn to sex work. They all served one old, middle aged man. 
    This is the case of Lawrence Ray and his decade long cult of college students and sex.

Social death of Sisi Wu - Amazingly told!!!

This was such an enlightening episode - I’ll be looking up ‘Social death and Slavery’ as recommended. The ending has me hopeful for her, but just as jaded about the world and the protection the patriachy provides to these perverted, trashy men! We have a long way to go as the human race!

Great storytelling as always Stephanie & MMB! ❤️❤️❤️
