Carl Watts admitted to attacking 15 women, and to killing 13.  He showed the police where 3 of the bodies were buried.

Characteristics: Stalker torture, but no rape

His victims were females of many races/ethnicities but mostly white between the ages of 14 and 44 years old

His M.O was stabbing, slashing, strangulation, downing or bludgeoning

In this first part of the episode we set the table for you by describing where Watts grew up and where he committed his crimes.  We discuss the details of his early life and early crimes.  We also get into the early part of the investigation into Watts’ crimes.  During the episode Beth and Wendy share our hot takes on the case and as always we will share some “how not to get murdered” safety tips.
