Fruitloops: Serial Killers of Color
E92: The Atlanta Child Murders Pt 1

E92: The Atlanta Child Murders Pt 1

September 17, 2020

Today we are talking about the Atlanta Child Murders. Between 1979 and 1981, children and teenagers were disappearing off the streets of Atlanta, later turning up dead, terrifying the entire city. At least 28 people in the Atlanta area, most of them young black boys and teenagers, were kidnapped and murdered.

This case is complicated. So to do it justice, we felt we had to turn it into a two parter. We encourage you to check out our show notes for additional information about the case. And we welcome our listeners to be a part of the conversation on Facebook or Twitter @ fruitloopspod or email us at frutloopspod@gmail.com

We dive into the Stats (13:24), the setting (16:12), the convicted killer's early life (32:20) and the timeline (39:36).  As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered (103:25) and some shout outs (108:15).

Thanks for listening! This is a weekly podcast and new episodes drop every Thursday, so until next time... look alive guys, it's crazy out there!

E83: Christina Shea Walters aka “Queen”

E83: Christina Shea Walters aka “Queen”

June 18, 2020

This week Beth and Wendy discuss Christina Shea Walters, a Native American woman and leader of a gang, who attempted to murder one woman, and then ordered the executions of two other women. The victims were chosen at random.

We dive into the story (15:34), the setting and the timeline. As usual we close out the show with some shout outs and of course, some tips on how not to get murdered.  

Thanks for listening! This is a weekly podcast and new episodes drop every Thursday, so until next time... look alive guys, it's crazy out there!
