E170: Sheila Davalloo

(note: time stamps are without ads & may be off a little)

This week Beth and Wendy discuss the case of Sheila Davalloo, an Iranian-American woman, who murdered her boyfriend’s girlfriend, and attempted to murder her husband.

First, we dive into the setting (07:34), the killers early life (25:32) and the timeline (30:15).  Then, we get into the investigation & arrest (46:34), “Where are they now?” () followed by our takeaways and what we think made the perp snap (57:23).  

As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered and our shout outs. 

This episode was researched & scripted by Wendy & Beth Williams.

Thanks for listening! This is a weekly podcast and new episodes drop every Thursday, so until next time… look alive guys, it’s crazy out there!

  1. Really enjoyed the episode. One more culture corner – I dated an Iranian man who’s family fled to country when the Shah fell. Parts of his family were really proud of being “white” – they defined this because during WWII, Hitler decreed that Iranians could intermarry with Germans because they were Aryan. If that isn’t a completely F***d up definition, I don’t know what is. That was also probably also related to Hitler’s desire for access to Iranian oil, but what do I know. Also, Farsi, the language spoken in Iran, is an Indo-European language with a sentence structure and verb conjugation similar to French, Spanish, and Italian. The written language adopted Arabic characters, and many Arabic sounds and words have been imported, but Iranians may be offended if you call them Arab. The language isn’t too hard to learn, as long as you get the characters down.
