Fruitloops: Serial Killers of Color

E126: Cory Deonn Morris

July 1, 2021

(note: time stamps are without ads & may be off a little)

This week Beth and Wendy Discuss the case of Cory Deonn Morris, a Phoenix serial killer and necrophile who killed at least five women in 2002-2003.

We dive into the setting (12:34), the killers early life (21:16) and the timeline (24:27).  Then, we get into the investigation & arrest (52:55), "Where are they now?" (59:35) followed by our takeaways and what we think made the perp snap (01:00:08).  

As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered (01:07:44) and our shout outs (01:09:49). 

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!
