Episode 43 - Lacey Fletcher

Sunday Mar 10, 2024

Sunday Mar 10, 2024

Lacey Fletcher was a 36 year old woman who had been living with her parents when a horrific 911 call was made. Police arrived to find a scene unlike any other. Lacey had been fused to her couch in her own urine and feces while her parents claimed to have "loved her to a fault".
 
We're discussing what we know so far about her case. Currently, her parents' trial is set for March 20, 2024 where they can face up to 40 years in prison for her death.

A case that rocked Itaewon, giving in further to negative stereotypes of foreigners. We witnessed first hand the public demand for justice help put a runaway suspect behind bars...but was it truly justice? Was it police incompetence or their pride?

It isn't a surprise that with any disaster, haunting memories will follow as well as ghost stories. However, despite the ghost stories we hear, what happened at Okawa elementary school on the day of March 11, 2011 was extremely real and very heart-breaking as well as horrifying. 
 
While we do discuss some of the ghost stories today, the real topic of today is Okawa Elementary School, and keeping the memory alive for the sake of those lost as well as their families.

While Fukushima Daiichi is the plant that comes to mind when people think of the Nuclear Disaster that occurred in Japan in 2011, not much is said about the sister plant that managed to survive the nuclear catastrophe that could have been.  
Subtle differences in leadership played a key factor for motivation and overall how the plant outcomes turned out. We'll discuss today how Fukushima Daini was left mostly unharmed.
