Fruitloops: Serial Killers of Color

E124: Martin Gonzalez Escamilla LIVE at CrimeCon

June 17, 2021

This week Beth and Wendy discuss the case of Martin Gonzalez Escamilla, LIVE at CrimeCon! Gonzalez is a serial killer who operated in Austin Texas. He killed women he was close to: his wife and his girlfriends.

We dive into the setting (5:22), the killers early life (9:45) and the timeline (12:54).  Then, we get into the investigation & arrest (18:53), our takeaways and what we think made the perp snap (29:45), followed by "Where are they now?" (26:11).  

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!
