E89: Huang Yong

This week Beth and Wendy discuss Huang Yong, a Chinese serial killer, convicted of murdering 17 teenage boys (although he is suspected of 25 murders) between September 2001-03.

We begin with listener letters (5:19). We dive into the setting (11:06) the killers early life, and the timeline. 

As usual we close out the show with some shout outs, crime news and of course, some tips on how not to get murdered.
