Morbidology the Podcast – 15: Devon Guzman

Listen to my podcast

It’s said that your teenage years are the most formative years of your life. They’re the years for finding yourself. Yeah, we’re all familiar with that cheesy cliché. But then there was Devon Guzman from Easton, Pennsylvania. At just 19-years-old, Devon knew exactly who she was. Openly gay, she drove around with a rainbow flag on the bumper of her car, always attracting an unamused glance from the intolerant locals.

But in 2000, Devon found herself as the star of a tragic tale of love and betrayal among three women and a man. This volatile mix of teenage angst and jealousy would eventually lead to a brutal murder.
