The Murder of Tanya Tandoc

The Moms are back! After a week off for family visitors and selling houses we are back and gigglier than ever. This week the format is a little different as we had a shorter case. We debut a new segment in the beginning that quickly goes off the rails and even add in a piece of Reddit “information” at the end (against Melissa’s better judgement).


This week’s case covers the murder of an amazing and eclectic woman in Kansas, and the coward who took advantage of her generosity and ultimately took her life.
