E73: Chai Soua Vang

Today Wendy & Beth discuss the case of Chai Soua Vang, a Hmong American man who was hunting in Wisconsin, wandered onto private land and was confronted. This led to Vang killing six and wounding two during this hunting dispute.

He’s more like a mass murderer than a serial killer, but sometimes we like to cover these cases anyway, and this one is particularly interesting.
