52.Hometown Homicides

This week we'll talk about a few homicide cases that take place in and around my hometown of Girard Ohio. The first is the still-unsolved case of Lena Cross and her 2 children, Mason and Christian. Lena was stabbed multiple times in her home, then the house was set on fire in an attempt to cover up the crime. Her two children were asleep upstairs and died in their sleep from smoke inhalation. The second case is that of Corinne Gump, who lived 5 of her 10 short years enduring sexual abuse from her mother's boyfriend, Robert Seman Jr. The day before she was to testify against him, the home she was staying in with her grandparents was set on fire, killing everyone inside. And lastly, we talk about the most recent case, the death, and dismemberment of Shannon Graves. She was murdered by her boyfriend Arturo Novoa, and her body was dismembered and disposed of by him, his other girlfriend Katrina Layton, and 2 friends Andrew Herrmann and his wife Michelle Ihlenfeld. intro and outro musicLove Turns Hatebackground musicKevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com)License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)
