Jeanette Ortiz was a model Chipotle employee. She’d worked there for 14 years. She had excellent performance reviews. But in early 2015, things got weird. Hundreds of dollars went missing from the restaurant’s safe. A manager came in to review the restaurant’s surveillance footage and claimed the camera had captured Jeanette stealing the money. But had she?
Then Brandi tells us about Clara Harris, a woman who thought she had the perfect marriage. Little did Clara know, her husband David Harris was having an affair with a co-worker named Gail Bridges. When the affair finally came out into the open, David told Clara he wanted to work on their marriage. He just needed one last meeting with Gail to end things for good. Clara let him go, but she wasn’t far behind.
And now for a note about our process. For each episode, Kristin reads a bunch of articles, then spits them back out in her very limited vocabulary. Brandi copies and pastes from the best sources on the web. And sometimes Wikipedia. (No shade, Wikipedia. We love you.) We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the real experts who covered these cases.
