Fruitloops: Serial Killers of Color

E83: Christina Shea Walters aka “Queen”

June 18, 2020

This week Beth and Wendy discuss Christina Shea Walters, a Native American woman and leader of a gang, who attempted to murder one woman, and then ordered the executions of two other women. The victims were chosen at random.

We dive into the story (15:34), the setting and the timeline. As usual we close out the show with some shout outs and of course, some tips on how not to get murdered.  

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!
