E86: John Rubio & Angela Camacho

This week Beth and Wendy discuss John Allen Rubio and Angela Camacho, who murdered their own children, and then decapitated them. This is a tough one, so please be forewarned. 

We dive into the story, stats and setting (8:38), and the killers early lives (14:33).  **We get into the details of the murders (36:30) CONTENT WARNING so feel free to skip ahead**.  Then, we get into the investigation and arrest (42:10) As usual we close out the show with some shout outs and of course, some tips on how not to get murdered(58:36).  

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!
