Episode 89 True Crime: The Murder of Gerlie Alpajora and the Disappearance of Keith Davis


We decided to cover stories that highlight the marginalized populations that were attacked in the recently resurfaced tweets by Taylor Nolan. This week, we focus on the Asian-American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities.

Danielle tells the story of the murder of Gerlie Alpajora in the Camarines Sur province, located in the Philippines. Gerlie was assassinated because of her advocacy work targeting illegal, unregulated, and unreported fishing in the area.

Gerlie’s murder also brought light to the disappearance of Keith Davis, both highlighted in the Netflix documentary Seaspiracy. The documentary is about the environmental impact of industrialized fishing directed by and starring Ali Tabrizi. The film features human impacts on marine life and the human rights violations that surround the fishing industry.
