This week Beth and Wendy discuss Eugene Victor Britt, an American serial killer and rapist. He killed somewhere around 11 people in Gary and Portage, Indiana between May and September 1995.
We get into our mailbag and thank our supporters (3.27). We get into the stats (14:13), then we dive into the setting (16:05), the killers early life (24:24) and the timeline (25:10). Then, we get into the investigation & arrest (42:00) followed by "Where are they now?" (59:45). We get into our take aways and what we think made the perp snap (1:00:06).
As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered (1:06:34) and some shout outs (1:10:02).
Thanks for listening! This is a weekly podcast and new episodes drop every Thursday, so until next time... look alive y’all, it's crazy out there!
