E81: Khalil Wheeler-Weaver

This week Beth and Wendy talk about Khalil Wheeler-Weaver, a man convicted of killing three women and attempting to kill a fourth, in an 88 day span during the summer and fall of 2016. As usual we close out the show with some shout outs, and of course, some tips on how not to get murdered.  We dive into the story at (12:07)

Please excuse the creepy door squeaking in the background as Wendy was flying solo with her kids this week, and they could not resist opening the door and checking up on her.

Thanks for listening! This is a weekly podcast and new episodes drop every Thursday, so until next time… look alive guys, it’s crazy out there!
