Crimson Tales: Holiday Crime Special

We’ve chosen a slightly different path as we approach the final episode of 2023. Today’s cases will be less emotionally intense, offering a reprieve as we transition into the festive season and the new year with a lighter spirit. We will focus on incidents where, despite criminal actions, no physical harm befell anyone – those peculiar situations that prompt disbelief and make you question their authenticity.

Content Warnings: mentions of drug use, drug trafficking, assault, attempted murder
