E59: The Warwick Slasher

This week Beth and Wendy discuss Craig Price AKA The Warwick Slasher, a juvenile serial killer who committed his crimes in Warwick, Rhode Island between the ages of 13 and 15.

After we catch up with each each other and show some love to listeners by reading your listener letters (8:00) we hit you with some stats (14:30).  Then we dive into the setting (15:53), the killers early life (22:59) and the timeline (32:45).  Then, we get into the investigation & arrest(43:36 ) followed by the trial (47:50).  We also talk about “Where are they now?”(49:15). We get into our Take Aways and what we think made the perp snap (54:03).  

As usual we close out the show with some some tips on how not to get murdered (1:06:00), crime news (1:07:18) and as always shout outs.
