This week’s case is one that, in our opinion, does not get enough limelight. As the world focused its attention on the Sheena Bora murder case in 2015, another heartbreaking and jaw dropping double murder somehow came to the forefront but was forgotten relatively quickly. This is the story of an immensely talented woman whose life, on the outside, seemed perfect and one that most people down the same career path would envy. This is the story of an Indian artist who gained fame and international recognition for the work she was doing, until one day, her life changed for the worse. This is the story of Hema Upadhyay. | Intro by ghostfml

April 23, 2021
