Three homeless teenagers stand accused of storming a sprawling Seattle homeless encampment known as “the Jungle” and opening fire in 2016. “The Jungle Murders,” as they were called, left Seattle reeling and the encampment was soon shut down by the city. Brothers James and Jerome Taafulisia, who were 16 and 17 at the time, accompanied by their 13-year-old brother, are accused of storming the camp with the intent of robbing a drug dealer. Depending on which opposing attorney one believes in the ongoing trial, the brothers were either looking for a huge payday by robbing the drug dealer or were hustled into taking the fall by older, more-criminally savvy members of their tight-knit Samoan community. 
The critically acclaimed podcast “Somebody Somewhere,” created and hosted by former prosecutor David Payne and former CNN producer Jody Gottlieb,follows all the twists and turns of this still-unresolved case. David and Jody can discuss why this case has captured the attention of news media and true crime aficionados across the country, and share some of the surprising turn of events from this intriguing case.
