Show Notes

On the morning of August 10 1991, Chawee Borders headed over to Wat Promkunaram to bring the Buddhist monks their daily meal. Instead, she discovered the bodies of nine people. Including five monks, a nun, the nun’s grandson, and a temple worker. But who would want to kill monks? And why?
