The Baseline Killer (revisited) Ep. 94

This week Beth and Wendy revisit the case of serial killer Mark Goudeau aka The Baseline Killer. Goudeau is a Black man who killed 9 people beginning in the fall of 2005 to the Summer of 2006.  We did this on our very first episode, ad we decided we’d give this story another look.

We dive into some stats (9:11), the setting (10:16), the killers early life (19:30) and the timeline (22:13).  Then, we get into the investigation & arrest (44:46) followed by “Where are they now?”(54:10). We get into our Take Aways and what we think made the perp snap (55:24).  

As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered(58:49) and shout outs (1:00:36).  

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!
