Episode 80 True Crime: Gallaudet University Murders of Eric Pluckett and Benjamin Varner


Last week we saw Abigail be voted off the island (please ignore Danielle, you know her new obsession is Survivor). Abigail is the first deaf contestant to be on the show, we love to see ability diversity.

This week Danielle talks about Gallaudet University, a school for the education of the deaf and hard of hearing, located in Washington, D.C. She also details the on-campus murders of freshman students Eric Plunkett and Benjamin Varner.

To be more inclusive, we have transcribed this episode using Otter.ai for you! You can see that transcription here.
