Fruitloops: Serial Killers of Color

E96: Gakirah Barnes

October 15, 2020

This week Beth and Wendy discuss Gakirah Barnes, a teenaged girl and gang member who lived in Chicago. She claimed to have killed 17 people by the time she was 17.

We share listener letters (3:45) and get into some stats (8:35).  Then we dive into the setting (9:47), the Gakira’s early life (25:40) and the timeline (27:29).  Then, we get into the conclusion of Gakira’s story (41:49). We get into our Take Aways (48:30) and some self care tips to help us get through the rest of 2020 (52:30) and we close out the show with some shout outs (58:41).
