(note: time stamps are without ads & may be off a little)
This week Beth and Wendy discuss the case of Shiquan andLatonia Bellamy, two cousins who murdered a newly engaged couple living in Jersey City, New Jersey. This was the first murder for Latonia, but as it turns out, the third murder for Shiquan.
We dive into the setting (14:33), the killers early life (25:01) and the timeline (32:36). Then, we get into the investigation & arrest (41:36), “Where are they now?” (01:00:53) followed by our takeaways and what we think made the perp snap (01:04:41).
As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered (01:12:37) and our shout outs (01:14:37).
Researched & scripted by Minnie Williams.
