S2 E13 - The Taco Bell Strangler Part 1

January 31, 2019

In Season 2 episode 13 Beth and Wendy Discuss Henry Louis Wallace, AKA the Taco Bell Strangler.  We got into the weeds on this one so it will be a 2 parter. In Part 1 we discuss this American serial killer who killed 11 women in North and South Carolina. Many serial killers target strangers, victims to whom they have no link or relation whatsoever. Henry Louis Wallace was not that kind of serial killer. Wallace preyed on people that he knew: his co-workers and acquaintances.

We get into the time, early 90s and the place Charlotte North Carolina.   We talk about the emergence of crack cocaine and its effects on poor black communities.  Beth and Wendy talk about how Wallace's mother was a strict disciplinarian. She would punish Wallace with a switch and during Culture Corner with Beth and Wendy we explain what that means.  We get into Wallace's early life and crimes which began as burglaries, which then escalated to rape and ultimately murder. Wallace a clean cut young man who was very charming.

Our listeners were dope enough to chime in on the #hownottogetshmurdered and #hownottogetmurdered and gave us some fire ass tips which we shared on the show.  

Our news this week came from Amanda in our Facebook Group about the 2 queer black men who were found at LGBTQ political activist, Ed Buck's home.

January 24, 2019

On this week’s episode, Beth and Wendy discuss La Madrina, the Black Widow, the Cocaine Godmother and the Queen of Narco-Trafficking, Griselda Blanco. She was a Colombian drug lord of the Medellín Cartel, and a pioneer in the Miami-based cocaine drug trade and underworld for decades. It has been estimated that she was responsible for more than 200 murders while transporting cocaine from Colombia to New York, Miami and Southern California.

Blanco grew up in Medellin Colombia during La Violencia.  She witnessed violence and death on the daily and was the victim of severe abuse at a young age. We discuss her early life and her rise to power as The Cocaine Godmother.  There are an infinite number of rumors and stories about La Madrina and we touch on those. We get into the setting, the timeline, her arrest, and where they are now. As always we thank our listeners, give some shout outs, share some crime news and how not to get murdered.
