10: The Murder-Suicide of Cousins Emeri Connery & Bailey Smith
70% of murder-suicides involve an intimate partner - a husband and wife, a boyfriend and girlfriend, etc.
In March 2019, police officer Bailey Smith shot and killed his cousin Emeri Connery before turning the gun on himself. The two were driving home after a long night celebrating Bailey's 21st birthday.
Strangely, Bailey was memorialized by the community with parades and celebrations, while Emeri, the actual victim of the crime, was hardly mentioned at all. Even Emeri's family seemed to defend her killer. So, do they know something we don't?
In this episode, we talk briefly about updates in the Madeleine McCann case before diving into what happened between Bailey and Emeri that night and murder-suicides in general.
