Ep. 27 - The Tragic Case of George Stinney Jr.

Season 1, Episode 27,  Jul 18, 04:00 AM

Thank you for all the emails and DM's. We love hearing from you. Keep em' coming and welcome to episode 27. We are bringing you some cross curriculum today as we discuss history and the justice system.  

Episode 27 is brought to you by Ashleigh and warning we get heated in this case today and rightfully so. George Stinney Jr. from South Carolina was wrongfully convicted and executed at 14 years old for the murder of two young girls, Betty June Binnicker, 11, and Mary Emma Thames, age 7. After more than 70 years George Stinney Jr. has officially been exonerated (2014), but that will never be enough to undo what was done. The young girl's real killer was never found or convicted and tragically three beautiful lives were lost.
