S2 E4: Alton Coleman & Debra Brown

On this episode we get talk about killer couple, Alton Coleman & Debra Brown, who in a span of two months, assaulted, raped and murdered their way from Illinois to Michigan and down to Kentucky before authorities were finally able to capture them. We get into the killers early lives, go into detail about the crimes and share as much as we were able to find about the victims. Coleman and Brown’s crime spree didn’t last long but they were brutal.  We get into the investigation and their arrest.  After we share with you where they are now, we share some of our take aways, shout outs, goodies you should know about, and as always “how not to get murdered”.  Join the conversation and give us your tips by sharing the hashtag #hownottogetmurdered
