17: TRUE CRIME TIME: The Joe Cinque / Anu Singh murder plus Michaella McCollum and the Peru Two

Yes, Eavesdroppers – it’s TRUE CRIME TIME! In this Drugs R Bad episode, we give a shout out to Ren, Jen and Zoë before looking at the case of Joe Cinque & Anu Singh alongside the story of drugs mules Michaella McCollum & Melissa Reid, also known as the Peru Two…

In 1997 in Canberra, Australia, law student Anu Singh told friends she was going to kill herself and hosted two dinner parties where she was meant to end her own life. Instead, she laced her unsuspecting boyfriend Joe Cinque’s coffee with Rohypnol before injecting him with a lethal dose of heroin. Why would Anu want to kill her boyfriend? And why would Anu want to kill herself? Why was she using heroin? And what did Joe do to deserve to die? Was Anu on a psychotic break? Why did she give paramedics the wrong address? Was it pre-mediated murder? And what sentence did Anu end up with? Listen in to find out!

Michelle then goes on to discuss the Peru Two, a cautionary tale of how two party girls from Northern Ireland and Scotland in 2013 went from having a fun summer in Ibiza to becoming cartel drugs mules… Who are Michaela McCollum and Melissa Reid? Why are they called the Peru Two? Is it actually possible that people don’t know where Lima is? Were they manipulated and groomed? Or were they just a bit stupid? Did Michaella actually go missing? And why did they lie to the media? Why are we talking about Quaker Oats? And how did their  story end? Listen now to find out! It’s all here on Eavesdroppin’!

We hope you enjoy this week’s episode– and wherever you are, whatever you do, just keep Eavesdroppin’!
