S2 E1: Takahiro Shiraishi aka The Twitter Killer

On Episode 1 of Season 2, Wendy and Beth are back at it. In a special Halloween episode, we take a deep dive into the life and crimes of Takahiro Shiraishi aka the Twitter Killer. Shiraishi was a young Japanese man who lured his victims via twitter. He preyed on young women who were contemplating suicide. When police apprehended him on Halloween 2017, they found 9 severed heads in his apartment. We talk about his victims, a bit about Japanese culture, and as always how not to get murdered. Look alive guys, it’s crazy out there
