Ep. 163: True Crime: The Murder of Mary Ellen Deener
It’s Black History Month, and we are focusing on stories from the Black community.
Last week we saw Clayton give a … strange response to Teddi saying she was a virgin. That led us into a conversation about what a virgin “looks like.” We also discuss the sexualization of black girls.
This week Danielle gives us more information about the over-sexualization of black girls in this country, with information from a recent study.
She also tells us about the murder of Mary Ellen Deener. Her killer was caught the very next day, only to be released from prison to go Christmas shopping in 1973, to never return.
Lester Eubanks, who now is in his mid-70s, was described as a 5-foot-11-inch male with black hair and brown eyes. At the time of his disappearance, he weighed approximately 175 pounds. Other unique physical characteristics include a mole under his left eye.
Anyone who has information on Eubanks is asked to call the U.S. Marshals Service tip line at 866-4-WANTED.
CONTENT WARNING: Child murder and child sexual assault. (Story Starts at: 3:43 ).
