Fruitloops: Serial Killers of Color

E145: Gregory Vincente Green

December 30, 2021

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

This week Beth and Wendy discuss the case of Gregory Vincente Green, a black American man who murdered his wife and unborn child. He went to jail, got out, then killed his second family! This subject was suggested by our fruities Nakia and Uni. 

We dive into the setting (8:27), the killer's early life (18:42) and the timeline (20:11) followed by our takeaways and what we think made the perp snap (45:02).  

As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered and our shout outs (45:02). 

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!
