E90: Donald Eugene Younge Jr.

This week Beth and Wendy get into the Donald Eugene Younge Jr. story (every heard of him?), a man who has never actually been convicted of murder, but is suspected in at least 5 murders.

We dive heavy into the setting, the timeline, our takeways, some shoutouts and of course, some tips on how not to get murdered.  

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!
