180. Hell Ride: The Murder of Hannah Cornelius

****Content Warning**** Sexual Assault****

Cape Town, South Africa: In the early hours of May 27, 2017, Hannah Cornelius drove her friend Cheslin Marsh home after a night out. Before Cheslin could say goodbye, four men hijacked the car at knifepoint and kidnapped the two Stellenbosch University students. 

Cheslin was beaten with bricks and left to die. The gang members brutally assaulted Hannah and then murdered her in a senseless, brutal, and barbaric attack.

The gang members would then go on a crime spree in Hannah's car until the police finally caught them.

Please join Cam and Jen as we discuss Hell Ride: Hannah Cornelius. 

**Jen apologizes in advance if she pronounced anything incorrectly.  She really tried!
