Episode 24: True Crime: The Honor Killings of Gelareh Bagherzadeh and Coty Beavers and the Murder of Muhlaysia Booker

This week’s episode is a little long but necessary and emotional, sorry not sorry.

Megan focuses on the 2012 honor killings of Gelareh Bagherzadeh and Coty Beavers. She does a deep dive into what honor killings even are… which, in the very simplest of terms is an EXTREME form of a family disagreement and just gross and violent.

As many people in Bachelor Nation know, Jordan Rodgers, JoJo Fletcher’s fiancee is also the brother of Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers. They’ve got a rather difficult relationship and have been estranged for quite some time. Megan does a deep dive into the brothers and their relationship and connects it all to the murders of Gelareh Bagherzadeh and Coty Beavers.

Danielle talks about the assault and recent murder of Muhlaysia Booker who was a transgender woman from the bustling LGBTQ+ community of Dallas, Texas, where Joelle “JoJo” Fletcher and Chris Harrison are from.

(If you want to skip the Bachelor talk, the first story kinda starts at 18:56 and really starts at 42:12 and the second story starts at 1:14:11).

We also share some true crime news about: The Golden State Killer, The disappearance of Vanessa Guillen, a mini update about Lori Vallow, and COVID at San Quentin.
