Episode 116: Itaberli Lozano

On January 7, 2017, police in Cravinhos, Brazil discovered a charred body in a sugarcane field and soon identified the remains as belonging to 17-year-old Itaberli Lozano, whose grandmother reported him missing days earlier. Before long, the investigation uncovered a diabolical murder plot orchestrated by Itaberli’s own mother, Tatiana Ferreira Lozano Pereira, who hired two young hitmen to kill her son. When her hired thugs refused to end Itaberli’s life, Tatiana herself stabbed her own child to death.

This is the story of a vivacious, outgoing teenager whose relationship with his mother crumbled when he told her he was gay. It’s also the story of a mother who so much preferred a dead son to a homosexual one that she twice solicited others to attack him before she herself ended his promising young life.

This is the horrific story of Itaberli Lozano.

Episode 115: Ronnie Paris

As an infant suffering malnutrition and broken bones, Ronnie Paris was removed from his teenage parents’ custody and placed into a wonderful foster home. After two years of nurturing and love, he was returned to his parents, and just six weeks later, three-year-old Ronnie was dead, the victim of chronic, vicious abuse at the hands of his father.

This is the story of a religious man who feared his toddler son might be gay and instigated a campaign of violence against the tiny boy, saying he didn’t want Ronnie to grow up to be a “sissy.” It’s also the story of a beautiful little boy with big brown eyes, an infectious smile, and a bright, limitless future – until Florida DCF reunited him with his abusive, neglectful parents.

This is the infuriating story of Ronnie Paris.

Episode 114: Jasmine Cannady & JJ Bright

On a seemingly mundane Monday afternoon in February of 2021, a 911 call summoned police to an unassuming two-story brick home in Ambridge, Pennsylvania. On the front porch, officers found 48-year-old Krisinda Bright waiting for them, covered in what she freely admitted was the blood of two of her children: 16-year-old JJ Bright and 22-year-old Jasmine Cannady, both of whom were inside the home, dead from apparent gunshot wounds to the head.

JJ, a transgender boy who socially transitioned at age 12, and Jasmine, who identified as nonbinary and used they/them pronouns, have been consistently misgendered by most media outlets from the start, and JJ has been deadnamed in news articles more times than I can count. In life, they deserved the respect of being referred to by their preferred pronouns and JJ by his chosen name; in death, the very least we can do is remember them with dignity and respect, the way they both deserve.

This is the tragic story of Jasmine Cannady and JJ Bright.

Episode 113: Kyon Jones

On May 7, 2021, a helpless seven-week-old infant was reported missing from his mother’s apartment in Washington, DC, but police were alarmed when they learned that baby Kyon Jones had been gone for two days by the time his disappearance was reported. After his mother gave several conflicting statements, both to police and to the public through a Facebook live interview with a local activist, it became clear that Kyon would not be located alive.

This is the story of a baby boy who never stood a chance. It’s also the story of a woman whose problems with drugs, alcohol, domestic violence, and mental illness made her the very last person who should be a parent, but who gave birth to several children, the last of whom was baby Kyon.

This is the frustrating story of Kyon Jones.

Note: I recently told Kyon’s story in Patreon-exclusive bonus minisode #7, but in light of recent events surrounding Kyon’s case, I decided to adapt that minisode into a regular podcast episode.

Episode 112: Moko Rangitoheriri (Part 2)

In my last episode, I told you the story of three-year-old Moko Rangitoheriri, who was brutally abused for weeks by his caretakers, Tania Shailer and David Haerewa, who were ultimately found guilty in Moko’s death and sentenced to 17 years each in New Zealand prison.

This week, you’ll hear about the killers’ attempt to appeal their sentences; the coroner’s inquest into the circumstances surrounding Moko’s death; and the legacy of change and hope inspired by the little boy with the big, bright smile.

This is part two of the disturbing story of Moko Rangitoheriri.

Episode 111: Moko Rangitoheriri (Part 1)

In 2015, single mom of three Nicola Dally-Paki’s oldest child needed to be hospitalized with a severe infection. She couldn’t leave him alone in the hospital, but she had no family nearby to care for her two younger children, aged seven and three. With few options, Nicola asked her longtime friend, Tania Shailer, to care for the kids for a while. She had no idea she was leaving her children in the care of a monster and her equally monstrous partner, David Haerewa. 

This is the story of a loving boy with a wide, infectious smile who spent the last weeks of his short life enduring unthinkable torture, pain, and violence. It’s also the story of two child killers whose inadequate charges led to ridiculously light sentences for a crime widely considered one of the worst child killings in New Zealand’s history.

This is part one of the disturbing story of Moko Rangitoheriri.
