Episode 96: The Thai Backpack Murders | Murder Island
On the surface the island of Koh Tao was heaven on earth for travelers looking to escape the world, to party all night, and sleep all day on white sand beaches. A lawless paradise, such a far cry from the policed western world. But the underbelly of that paradise was a far cry from the excited stories the back packers had to tell. On the island there existed corruption, racism, disorder, and, starting in 2014, a string of very complicated murders that just did not seem to make sense. Their exposures would muddy the reputation of the island. In the case we have for you today there exists the death of two backpackers, other complicated deaths on the island, a police force under fire, a local mafia exposed, and families trying to seek justice in a place that was sought after for turning their cheek to it.

88: Jacob Landin
New Mexico ranks among the worst states in the United States for child abuse deaths, with more than three per 100,000 children. From 2001 to 2016, more than 22 children in New Mexico ranging from 5 weeks old to 11-years-old have been killed as the result of physical and sexual abuse. While these statistics are extremely alarming, critics say that the numbers are severely underestimated. Among the issues within the state’s embattled child welfare agency are staffing problems as well as increasing and overwhelming caseloads. In 1987, nine-month-old Jacob Landin tragically passed away after becoming the victim of a child abuser. Over three decades later, his family are still fighting for justice.
