188: Searching for Sheela

2021-06-2201:01:302

BUCKLE UP EVERYONE, GILLIAN IS REAL MAD THIS WEEK! So, Ok, remember Ma Anand Sheela from “Wild Wild Country?” She was Bagwan’s number 2, bus we all knew she was really the one running things in the Rajneesh Cult. Remember how she went a little bananas and tried to poison the entire town in Oregon where the cult was based and then she plotted to assassinate a Senator, and then went into hiding after leaving the cult. WELL GUESS WHAT, SHE’S GETTING HER OWN DOCUMENTARY! After 35 years, she’s headed back to India to promote her book. But she really doesn’t want to talk about the book or answer any questions AND GILLIAN IS NOT HERE FOR IT. Ugh, this is a doozy.  FAM OUR LIVE SHOW IN BOSTON IS BACK ON AND TICKETS ARE NOW ON SALE!!

The murder was so brutal—so violent—that detectives on the scene remarked that they’d never seen anything like it. On the morning of September 7, 2012 Faith Hedgepeth’s roommate Karena Rosario found her dead in her bed in the apartment they shared near their college, UNC Chapel Hill. She’d been brutally beaten over the head with a liquor bottle and left to die. Nothing made sense. Faith was beloved at her school. Who would want her dead? Was this a random act of violence? Or, as police would quickly wonder, was it revenge?LOOKING FOR MORE TCO? On our Patreon feed, you'll find over 140 FULL BONUS episodes to BINGE RIGHT NOW!

1 murder. 6 convictions. But did any of them do it? Sometime after midnight on February 6, 1985, 68-year-old Helen Wilson was raped and brutally murdered in her small apartment in downtown Beatrice, Nebraska. In an era before DNA testing, all investigators had to go on was the fact that the killer had a very rare genetic marker in his blood type. But there were no other viable clues. But four years after the crime, arrests started being made, one after another—six in total. And though they all claimed to have had nothing to do with the crime—and none of them had the rare genetic marker—they were all convicted. But when DNA evidence eventually exonerates them, the real killer is found out. LOOKING FOR MORE TCO? On our Patreon feed, you'll find over 140 FULL BONUS episodes to BINGE RIGHT NOW!

I usually love your gallows humor, but I'm just wondering...do you think you would have been laughing quite as much if it had been a girl who had been raped instead of a boy? I know how devoted mormons are to their religion, even at a young age. And they take their missions extremely seriously. Therefor I'm also quite sure that that boy wouldn't just have gone off willingly. Him breaking out in prayer while been raped underlines his internal religious crisis - beyond the personal one, having his freedom taken and private sphere violated. Hence this becomes a double trauma for him, since he is violated in two so fundamentalt ways. I don't think many people give this aspect of his personal tragedy much thought, and I think it's a pity, because then it's easy to make light of his experience. PS. I'm not a mormon, or even religious at all.

Saying that, this episode really blew me away. I think you honoured the bravery of these incredible women with respect and compassion. The end of the programme moved me to tears. Amazing work.

Totally agree that I would not go listen to this man talk just to get info. Who knows what info is right and he’d just go on and on about him anyways.

poor Britney. conservatorships are really not meant for someone like her. Typically consider ships are given to people who are young however they usually have an intellectual disability like down syndrome or severe autism or some other disability that does not allow them to make sound decisions. Also conservatorships are not the same in every state. Every state is different so theoretically Britney could move back home to Louisiana and the laws in Louisiana could be completely different. She could potentially not need a conservatorship in Louisiana or she can move to Texas and she might not need a conservatorship in Texas. Again different states have different laws to establish that a conservatorship is necessary. Although in Texas a conservativeship is called a guardianship they have different terms in different states it's a very interesting legal field most people have never heard of it until Britney's case.
