This week Beth and Wendy discuss the case of Lulonda Flett, an indigenous Canadian woman who killed 5 people when she set a house on fire in Winnipeg.
(note: time stamps are without ads & may be off a little)
We thank our listeners (6:57). We get into some stats (12:15) and then dive into the setting (13:10), the killers early life (23:56) and the timeline (31:11). Then, we get into the investigation & arrest (44:28) followed by “Where are they now?”(51:53). We get into our Take Aways and what we think made the perp snap (53:45).
As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered (58:15) and some shout outs (1:00:50).
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!
