In this week’s episode we discuss Part 1 of The DC Snipers AKA the Beltway Snipers , John Allen Muhammad (aged 41 at the time) and Lee Boyd Malvo (aged 17 at the time). Their crime spree began in February of 2002, and included murders and robberies in the states of Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, and Washington. In ten months, the snipers killed 17 people and wounded 10 others. We dive into the the early lives of the killers and the timeline, and how complicated life can be.
As usual we close out the show with some shout outs, crime news and of course, some tips on how not to get shmurdered (murdered).
