This week we’re looking at suspiciously timed insurance claims. Jonatan starts with Michael 'Mullet Mick' Martin, an Australian man who was brutally stabbed in his home one night while his son was visiting. Fortunately (or strangely) his 28-year-old son escapes with only superficial injuries. You can see where this is going…
Then Ana talks about Derek Nicholson who goes missing during a beach outing with his pregnant partner Nikole Nagle. A week later, the insurance company won’t pay out and Derek shows up with amnesia. When police start investigating it looks like a clear setup.
Finally we round off with an ‘Anti-Freeze Slushie’ cocktail (with blueberry and marshino liqueur) and discuss some of our favourite insurance related crimes including Michael ‘Iron Mike’ Malloy and a teacher who has her students help her to commit insurance fraud in exchange for higher grades.
