Show Notes

As the rest of the world unfurled their newspapers to read about the sinking of the Titanic, Argentines opened their papers to learn of a tragedy closer to home. A father discovered his three-year-old boy murdered and abandoned in a vacant home. The baby was only one casualty in a wave of attacks against the children of Buenos Aires.
