S3 E13: Las Poquianchis

This week Beth and Wendy discuss Las Hermanas Gonzalez, AKA the Gonzalez sisters, AKA Las Poquianchis. From the 1950s until the mid-1960s, they ran a sex trafficking ring in Mexico, and at the same time, committed at least ninety-one murders. 

We dive into the setting in Mexico (11:35), the sisters early life (26:15) and the timeline (32:40).  Then, we get into the arrest(43:28) followed by the Trial (45:20). “Where are they now?”(49:00). We get into our Takeaways and what we think made the sister snap (51:46).  

As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered(58:00) shout outs ( 1:04:00), and  of course crime news (1:00:35).
