American Justice Podcast

Jun 25, 2022

In episode eight season three of the American Justice Podcast, Scott and C. Derick break down the chilling rape and murder of Sabrina Bui, an 11-year-old girl found dead in a field - underwear stuffed down her throat, bloodied and raped in 1983. They discuss how two brothers, Henry McCollum and Leon Brown, were coerced into a confession, wrongfully convicted of murder, and sent to prison for more than 30 years for a crime that DNA evidence would later prove they didn't commit.
