Fruitloops: Serial Killers of Color

E80: Antoinette Frank

May 21, 2020

This week in episode 80 Beth and Wendy Discuss the case of Antoinette Frank, a police officer in New Orleans, who killed three people during a robbery, including another police officer. So more of a mass murderer than a serial killer, BUT.... she might actually BE a serial killer. We’ll get into it.
