Trigger warnings this episode: Domestic Abuse at 22:22

This week the catogory is Hearts and Spades, our crimes of the heart catagory. Lady takes us on the harrowing journey of Michelina Lewandowska, a beautiful young polish woman who would find herself in the absolutely worst situation: Buried Alive. This is a scary episode, not only for the crime, but also because of how recent it is. But not to worry, it'll take more than an early grave to stop this badass of a woman.
