S2 E19: Randall Toshio Saito

Today’s episode is a little bit different. We are talking about Randall Saito, who is not a serial killer, but he did kill one woman and was described as someone who has the potential to be a serial killer, had he not been caught. In 2017, he escaped a state mental hospital in Hawaii and flew across the ocean before he was apprehended in California.

We discuss the history, the setting, the crime and the killers epic escape from a mental hospital and eventual capture.  

As usual we close out the show with some shout outs, crime news and of course, some tips on how not to get shmurdered.
