This week Beth and Wendy discuss Sid Ahmed Rezala aka The Train Killer. An Algerian man who killed 3 women in France in 1999.
We open up our mailbag (5:50) and thank our listeners and patrons. We begin our story (12:52) and then dive into the setting (14:15), the killer’s early life (34:45) and the timeline (38:31). Then, we get into the investigation & arrest (47:55) followed by “Where are they now?”(60:39). We discuss our Take Aways and what we think made the perp snap (60:53).
As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered (1:05:24) and some shout outs (1:09:27).
Thanks for listening! This is a weekly podcast and new episodes drop every Thursday, so until next time… look alive y’all, it’s crazy out there!
