E112: Alex Henriquez

This week Beth and Wendy discuss the case of Alejandro “Alex” Henriquez, aka The Bronx Serial Killer, an American serial killer and rapist, active in New York City’s Bronx district between 1989 and 1990.

(note: time stamps are without ads & may be off a little)

We dive into the setting (8:08).  We begin with some stats (12:08) and the setting (14:44)  the killers early life (17:50) and the timeline (24:26 ).  Then, we get into the investigation & arrest (38:59) followed by “Where are they now?”(52:05). We get into our Take Aways and what we think made the perp snap (54:48).  

As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered (1:01:20) and some shout outs (1:04:28).  

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!
