Fruitloops: Serial Killers of Color

E53: Darren Deon Vann AKA Big Boy Appetite

August 29, 2019

This week Beth and Wendy talk about Darren Deon Vann AKA "Big Boy Appetite" AKA The Gary Strangler, a man who killed at least seven women in Indiana. This subject was suggested to us by Maile in our Facebook discussion group!

We dive into the setting (11:40), the killers early life (17:04) and the timeline (25:07).  Then, we get into the trial (42:33) followed by "Where are they now?"(46:48). We get into our Take Aways and what we think made the perp snap (50:45).  

As usual we close out the show with some shout outs (59:11), crime news (58:00) and of course, some tips on how not to get murdered(55:16).  

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!
