    Ep. 179 True Crime: The Murder of Molly Watson

    We are still on a break from the Bachelor but connecting our stories to the franchise. This week, a Bach Nation couple got married, FINALLY, but not for lack of trying. Congratulations to Bachelorette 12 JoJo Fletcher, and her final rose, Jordan Rogers. Their wedding is what Megan uses as a backdrop for this week’s story.

    Megan tells the story of the Murder of Molly Watson. Molly was just two days away from marrying her longtime partner when she was shot and killed. This story takes a definite turn when the police show up to inform Molly’s fiancé of her death and his wife answers the door.

    Ep. 178 True Crime: The Murder of Alan Berg

    Ep. 178 True Crime: The Murder of Alan Berg

    We are still on a break from the Bachelor, but connecting our stories to the franchise. Stagecoach 2022 was held at the end of April, it’s a country music festival that Bachelor Nation always seems to flock to. This year, Blake Hortsmann (aka Balaockaye), performed as a DJ, and the crowd seemed to love it. Blake and Stagecoach also had a whole storyline on Bachelor In Paradise Season 6. This week’s story is for Blake, who calls Denver, Colorado home with a dope roommate Elyse!

    This week, Megan tells the story of the murder of Alan Berg. Alan was an outspoken Jewish talk radio host, whose show on KOA AM 850 in Denver could be heard in over 30 states. Sources say that Alan had an abrasive on-air personality, and was always ready to call out anti-Semitism and other forms of racism. Unfortunately, this made him a target of a white supremacist group, the Order.

    Ep. 177 True Crime: The Death of James Powell and the Harlem Riots of 1964

    Ep. 177 True Crime: The Death of James Powell and the Harlem Riots of 1964

    We are still on a break from the Bachelor, but connecting our stories to the franchise. Bachelor contestants tend to migrate to certain cities after the show (San Diego, Nashville, etc). New York seems to be the new hot spot, so Danielle covers a NY case. Danielle also heard the story while watching “Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty,” which she says is a great show on HBO. Basketball was a theme during Matt James and Queen Michelle Young’s season.

    Harlem, New York has fluctuated between a booming city of black excellence and a place of extreme violence, drugs, and crime. In 1964, weeks after the Civil Rights Act, James Powell, a 15-year-old black boy, was killed by a police officer. The death outraged the city and led to days of protest.

    Ep. 176 True Crime: The Solitary Confinement of Dennis Wayne Hope

    Ep. 176 True Crime: The Solitary Confinement of Dennis Wayne Hope

    We are still on our Bachelor break, and still bringing you stories connected to the whole of Bachelor Nation. We know that The Bachelor franchise gives contestants very little access to the outside world when they are on the show. This is Danielle’s inspiration and connection for this week’s story.

    This is a non-murder true crime story. Dennis Wayne Hope currently spends virtually every waking minute alone in a jail cell smaller than a compact parking space. Decades of isolation have led to hallucinations, chronic pain, and thoughts of taking his life. While incarcerated, for a non-violent offense after several prison escapes, he is trying to bring light to the issue of prolonged solitary confinement and the Supreme Court of the United States may be listening.

    Ep. 175 True Crime: The Murder of Jason Michael Fox

    Ep. 175 True Crime: The Murder of Jason Michael Fox

    We are still on our Bachelor break, and still bringing you stories connected to the whole of Bachelor Nation. Big thanks to Crime and Closets for recommending this story for us to cover!

    Megan tells a story from Pend Orielle County, Washington. Washington state is home to several Bachelor contestants including Pieper James, Katie Thurston, and Abigail Heringer – to name a few. Also, our King Nayte went to college at Eastern Washington University, near Spokane, not far from the location of this case.

    Megan tells the story of the murder of Jason Michael Fox. Jason was a sweet, creative, and compassionate 19-year-old who was lured to hang out with “friends” in September 2020. These people were NOT Jason’s friends and are accused of taking his life. His family believes Jason was murdered because of his sexual orientation. #JusticeForJason
