This week the Fruitloops Duo get into the Ali Hammam Sisters, Raya and Sakina, Egypt’s most infamous serial killers. They, their husbands and two other men began killing women in the Labban neighborhood of Alexandria in the early days of the 20th century.
We share some of your listener letters (7:15), and thank our listeners. We share the stats (12:07), then we dive into the setting (12:50), the killers early life (13:00) and the timeline (27:37). Then, we get into the investigation & arrest (32:40) followed by the trial (36:45) and “Where are they now?”(41:14). We get into our Take Aways and what we think made the perp snap (45:45).
As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered (50:37), crime news (53:45) and of course some shout outs (55:33). A big thanks to Marlene Miller, one of our Fruitloops Pod Squad, who provided the beats for the transitions in this episode!
