    #366: 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.

    #365: 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.”

    #364: 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.

    #363: 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?

    #362: 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.

    #361: 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.

    #360: Dad Moves Into Daughter’s College Dorm & Starts A Cult On Campus

    “Hey, can my dad stay with us for a little while after he gets out of prison?” 

    It was an odd request but Talia’s roommates felt like they couldn’t say no. Talia was a good friend, she always talked about wanting to become a lawyer and help people. She just had this tiny little quirk… 

    She was obsessed with her dad. 

    Even at parties - she would not stop talking about what an incredible man he was. He’s just going to stay in their dorms while he looks for a new place. What could possibly go wrong?

    When Larry Ray moves into Talia’s dorm - he slowly starts brainwashing all of Talia’s friends. Soon, he will be sleeping in Talia’s best friend’s room. Encouraging the students to all have intimate relations with each other… while he watches. 

    This would be the start of his decade-long college cult.

    #359: 20 Police Officers Listened On The Phone As He Sliced Her Into 365 Pieces To Make Human Flesh Pills 

    Oh Won is getting into his next at home project – everything is set up for success. He has a whole bottle of his favorite Chinese liquor. It’s stronger than Vodka, but he’s tossing it back like water. 

    His hand reaches for his phone as he feels the urge again. He’s on autopilot mode - staring at his screen, swiping, swiping… He presses play and puts his phone up against the bathroom sink. The woman’s moaning is just echoing off the bathroom wall… He lights a cigarette and squats down with his 8-inch knife.

    He starts moving the knife back and forth. 

    The key is that each cut has to be uniform; all the same thickness and size. It’s the most enjoyable for consumption that way…

    Before Oh Won knew it, six hours had passed. 365 pieces of meat, meticulously sliced into uniform, same-sized, thin pieces. He portioned them out and placed them into 17 separate black plastic bags. All that’s left are the bones and the parts that aren’t really important.

    He flips over the piece he was working on all morning. He stares at her face. He didn’t—couldn’t take any meat from there. Her face and hair were untouched, but below her neck, all of her flesh had been sliced off up until her knees.

     

    He had deboned her.

    #358: Netflix’s “3 Body Problem” New Show Leads To MURDER Of YOUNG BILLIONAIRE

    The "3 Body Problem" was going to be Jeff Bezoz’s billion-dollar investment. The plan? Invest $1B into a new sci-fi series and watch the subscriptions to Amazon Prime Video flow in.

    All they have to do is buy the English adaptation rights off from the Chinese gaming giant – Yoozoo Gaming. They own the film and TV rights to the “3 Body Problem Universe.”

    The deal was close to being done – till CEO Lin Qi of Yoozoo walks into a conference room in LA. Dressed like a gangster. Puts his feet up on the table and suggests a co-production. He blew up the deal that Amazon had been working on for 8 months.

    Amazon was upset but as they were walking out of the meeting room… they noticed something. Nobody around CEO Lin looked happy either.

    They wouldn’t be surprised when they heard the news 2 years later. The billionaire CEO Lin was murdered by someone inside his company.

    #357: Yale Student Found Inside The Wall of Multi Million Dollar Research Lab on Campus

    There’s a boring red brick building in the middle of Yale University’s campus. If you walk past it you might think it’s an administrative office. It looks - boring. 

    But if you look closely - there are 75 CCTV cameras pointed directly at the building. Covering every square inch of the exterior. Why would they need so much security for a university building?

    It is the Animal Research Laboratory. It houses over 4000 research mice and has tens of millions of dollars of research experiments being conducted inside the brick walls. 

    It is one of the most secure buildings on campus. 

    Till a brilliant Yale graduate student disappears inside. 

    She walks in. 

    Never walks out. 

    She is nowhere to be found in the building - or at least that’s what the authorities initially thought. 

    But have they checked the walls?

    #356: Ex-Minister Beats Wife To Death For 8 Hours THEN Goes To Lunch Date With Influencer In Next Room

    He once controlled the entire economy of the country—to put it simply. The man in the restaurant security footage is an ex minister of Kazakstan, the third most powerful person in the entire country. 

     

    His name is Kuandyk Bishimbaev and his wife, Sultanat Nukenova, were supposed to be on a dinner date; instead the security cameras capture something else.

     

    Around 7 in the morning, the ex minister grabs his wife by a fistful of her hair and throws her onto the ground in the hallway.

     

    Her jacket naturally flips open – and she’s naked, barely covered on the cold dirty floor of the restaurant. He’s standing over his wife’s limp body on the ground. The ex minister lifts his right leg up and starts kicking his wife as hard as he can. He’s holding onto a table to maintain his own balance. 

     

    That’s how much force is being used.

     

    Then he drags her by the hair into a bathroom – where there are no CCTV cameras. Any footage of her after that has been erased.

     

    But the ex-minister is seen many times after on the security footage. Spending time with other women – a lunch date with an influencer, texting an alleged sex worker, all while his wife lay dying in the VIP booth of the restaurant. 

     

    His excuse for why he couldn’t call for help or get his wife's battered body out of the restaurant? Well—because— Vladimir Putin is coming.
