True Crime and Chill

ABOUT

The Misfortune of La Llorona

This week, an urban legend came to our attention that has spanned history for many years across multiple countries and cultures – and circulates around what would be considered a true crime case today. Maria was a small town beauty that mourns the death of her children and walks the earth in the afterlife searching for them, taking wandering children in the night thinking they’re hers and when she finds they’re not, she kills them. This week, we discuss the legend of La Llorona – the weeping woman.
