E128: John Floyd Thomas Jr.

July 15, 2021

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

This week Beth and Wendy discuss the case of John Floyd Thomas Jr., an American serial killer convicted of the murders of seven women in the Los Angeles area during the 70s and 80s. He is also suspected of committing many, many more.

We dive into the setting (9:10), the killer's early life and the timeline (21:14).  Then, we get into the investigation & arrest (38:04), "Where are they now?", followed by our takeaways and what we think made the perp snap (46:12).  

As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered and our shout outs (54:13). 

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!

E125: Mark Garfield Moore

E125: Mark Garfield Moore

June 24, 2021

This week Beth and Wendy discuss the Canadian rapper and serial killer, Mark Garfield Moore. Moore was an aspiring Toronto rapper who committed four killings in 75 days, between September and November 2010. Most of the victims were random strangers.

We dive into the setting (13:49), the killer's early life (30:06) and the timeline (33:15).  Then, we get into the investigation & arrest (40:47) followed by "Where are they now?" (57:34 ). We get into our takeaways and what we think made the perp snap (1:01:49). 

As usual we close out the show with tips on how not to get murdered (107:48) and finally our shoutouts for the week (1:10:04). 

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!

The Austin Axe Murderer (Replay)

The Austin Axe Murderer (Replay)

June 3, 2021

Hello from CrimeCon, Fruities! We’ve been kind of busy getting ready and did not have much time to prepare a new episode for you. CrimeCon is in Austin this year, so we thought we’d replay our episode on the Austin Axe Murderer, which originally aired as our Christmas episode. So Merry Christmas in June!

Some people call this case America’s Jack the Ripper. It’s pretty interesting, and we hope you enjoy it.

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!

E123: Jarvis Catoe

E123: Jarvis Catoe

May 27, 2021

This week Wendy and Beth discuss the case of Jarvis Theodore Roosevelt Catoe, a serial killer who was active from 1935-1941, but possibly as early as 1929, in Washington DC and New York, NY. 

We dive into the setting (12:59), the killer's early life (24:43) and the timeline (30:38). Then, we get into the investigation & arrest (50:09) followed by "Where are they now?" (59:13). We get into our takeaways and what we think made the perp snap (1:00:25).  

As usual, we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered (1:05:41) and our shout outs (1:10:17 ).  

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!
