S2 E24: The Poughkeepsie Killer Part 1

In this episode, which is part one of a two parter, Wendy and Beth tell the story of Kendall Francois, aka “The Poughkeepsie Killer”. Francois was a serial killer from Poughkeepsie, New York, who was convicted of killing eight women from 1996 to 1998. We cover Francois’ early life, the timeline and investigation.

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