EP. 72 – SHEENA BORA MURDER CASE

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.

EP. 71 – THE UNSOLVED MYSTERY 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, yet 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.

EP. 69 – THE UNSOLVED CASE OF NADIA MALIKE – 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.

EP. 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.

EP. 66 – THE TALE OF TOYAH CORDINGLEY – AUSTRALIA/INDIA

Any “Travel to Australia” advertisement on television displays stills of the Great Barrier Reef and pearl white beaches. Volleyball, tank tops, scantily clothed and sizzlingly tanned bodies can be found frolicking around. But on 22nd October 2018, a body was found in one such Australian beach. The difference was, this wasn’t a tanned person frolicking around. In fact, this body did not appear to move at all. This is the story of the day that redefined the ‘beach’ for residents of Queensland, Australia; this is the story of Toyah Cordingley.

EP. 63 – THE DELHI DAHMER: TAKE OF THE SHRADDHA WALKAR

Every now and then, in this country of a booming billion, a crime occurs that captures the attention of the nation. Every now and then, one crime is what everyone can talk about – from conversations over the 2 rupee tea at the roadside chai wala to conversations over a sugar infused diabetes inducing drink at starbucks: one story cuts across caste, class, and creed. In 2021, that story was the Madanapalle Double Murder, and 2022 just found its story as well. This is the story of what went down, allegedly, in a small apartment in Mehrauli’s Chatarpur area; this is the story of Shraddha Walkar and Aftab Amin Poonawala.

EP. 61 – THE NEW YEAR MURDER: JHANVI KUKREJA

As 2020 came to a close, the world came together to mark the merciful end of a tragic year of pandemic tragedy. Families were left in shambles, with loved ones gone too soon and whole communities in relentless mourning. But the end of a year so trying offered hope that the turning of the calendar might allow us to begin anew. The unsuspecting Kukreja family shared that hope, having no way of knowing just how profoundly that New Years Eve would change their lives forever. This is the story of one night and one family, tied together forever. This is the story of 19-year-old Jhanvi Kukreja.

EP. 59 – THE DISAPPEARANCE OF THE CHOHAN FAMILY – PT. 2

You’re familiar now with the story of a seemingly loving, happy couple: Nancy and Amarjit were living with their two children in London until the entire family vanished like they’d never existed. Some thought little of it, saying the family had left of their own volition. Nancy’s brother thought otherwise, launching a wild hunt for his family. Much as he tried, Onkar’s search seemed only to bring more questions. But we’re here to give you some answers. Welcome back to part two of the Disappearance of the Chohan Family.

EP. 58 – THE DISAPPEARANCE OF THE CHOHAN FAMILY

Sadly, disappearing is not as uncommon as we might hope. Oftentimes, it’s young women like Sneha Phillip, or small children like like Geeta and Sanjay Chopra at the hands of Ranga and Billa; the sorts of cases we cover regularly. What is uncommon is for an entire family to vanish all at once. What happens when it’s suddenly as if three generations never existed? The answer: Scotland Yard spirals into one of the most complex manhunts in UK history, traveling to four countries and collecting thousands of documents to solve a case that turned the country upside down. This is the story of that manhunt. This is the story of the Chohan family.
