Episode 3.13 The Massie Affair

In 1931 in Honolulu, Hawaii, Thalia Massie claimed she was raped by a group of men including Joseph Kahahawai, a well-known local prizefighter. Cracks in Thalia's story throughout the case led to deadlocked jury and a mistrial, leading Thalia's mother, Grace Fortescue, and several accomplices, to murder Joseph Kahahawai. The group soon thereafter, were charged with his murder. In today's episode we discuss The Massie Trial, known as the Massie Affair, and how this high-profile and controversial case unfolded.
