Best of Once Upon a Crime: Last Stop: The Murdered Women of Juarez

Season 8,   May 20, 11:00 PM

This month in Once Upon a Crime’s “Best Of” series, we highlight significant episodes as the podcast rounds off its eighth year.

This week, I’ve chosen to revisit a story from 2018 about the serial murders of over 500 women in Juarez, Mexico, between 1993 and 2011. You’ll hear about the disturbing pattern of disappearances and murders of young women from that city. The episode also discusses the widespread negligence and victim-blaming by the police, the negative impacts of labeling women based on their employment and economic status, and the appalling cycle of violence that seemed permitted due to a lack of legal repercussions.

08:04 Impact of NAFTA on Juarez
10:06 Role of Women in Juarez
17:04 Victim Blaming and Police Negligence
