Welcome back to the TCFC podcast. I’m your guest host, Coleen, from Misconduct. Teen dating violence is a growing epidemic. A study published in the Journal of the Academic Medical Association in 2017 revealed that of the 2000 adolescent homicides between 2003 and 2016, 150 of these were committed by former boyfriends or girlfriends. 90% of these were female, with an average age of 17. In almost 80 percent of the cases, the male perpetrator was 18 years old or older (1). Today, we discuss an instance of break-up violence from 1988, before any real understanding of stalking behaviors or other red flags. Okay…onto the show.
From Campside Media, Chameleon’s new second season, “High Rollers,” tells the seedy story of Operation Botox, an FBI undercover investigation designed to catch money launderers
Hosted by investigative journalist Trevor Aaronson, this new season uses FBI undercover recordings that take listeners on a journey inside a two-year sting operation that goes off the rails in ways both tragic and comic. Set in “Sin City” Las Vegas, nothing comes short to this mind-blowing heist that involves all the classic Vegas highs and lows:
o high rollers get involved in a money-laundering scheme o an informant runs his own scams o a reported love triangle o strippers o and millions at stake o (like exactly what you see in the movies, except this actually happened)
It’s an investigative thriller that challenges listeners to consider and question the enormous unchecked powers of the FBI and federal agents’ decisions to investigate unsuspecting Americans.
Don’t miss this mind-blowing crime caper. Chameleon: High Rollers is available every Tuesday on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or wherever you listen.
Charlie of the Crimelines Podcast is the guest host for this episode, focusing on the crimes of Patty Cannon. Slavery is a heinous crime against humanity, and history has made it no less so. When slavery was practiced in America, there were unscrupulous individuals who would kidnap freed blacks and sell them back into slavery, as was the case of Solomon Northup. The most notorious of these was also a female serial killer. Okay…onto the show.
